SQUIGGLEFLY -SFC#113 - WRITER'S CRAMP

Hello everyone! I am so happy I got to make this fun challenge again this week. Looks like a back to school card right. It is, but it has two functions because it's for my BF's daughter, she is having a bday around the same time. So I thought she would get a kick out of it!

I have to say that being on the SQUIGGLEFLY DT has made me go "oooh and aaah" for a lot of images, and this one is no exception. This is Tiny Tina off to school from Tracey Malnofski.   This week our chief Heather is looking to give us all a WRITERS CRAMP. Well, what she really means is:
Use chalk (any kind), pencil, ball point pen, highlighter or crayons  or use a school themed image or sentiment on your project. I wrote my sentiment with White Signo pen on the chalkboard and added Crystal effects to it. Neat huh! 


SO please join us all at SQUIGGLFELY CHALLENGE BLOG and enter your card in for a chance to win some fuuuuuun digis!

I have also used this week's MIDNIGHT MADNESS CHALLENGE. Chose the simpler...you know how simple I can be right. LOL

FOR MY SWEET STYLIST

Awwww yes, the day is nearing when my sweet stylist will be going into retirement. It is going to be an adjustment for alot of her loyal clients and fans! Let me say that she has been styling my hair since I was 7 years old, so like alot of other things, I should say people in my life, she is a CONSTANT. I can say that she has become a friend too. So it was only natural that I be assigned by her successor (another sweet stylist) to make a card that we will give her at the retirement party she planned for her next week! 
The sentiment in English says: To a spectacular retiree!

Note: My card is a 81/2" X 11", (needed alot of space for everybody to write their personal wishes) so I did change Stamping Bella's image a bit, as I scanned it and made her hair shorter for her to look more like my stylist. Added the wedge heel, that is all she wears too. 
AND PLEASE BE REMINDED THAT I AM NOT SELLING THIS CARD IT IS A GIFT.

Forgot to say that this card is inspired by Linda (holstein) on SCS, she is our Queen for the day, gee, it's been a while since I played that one. So glad I got a chance to discover a very talented cardmaker.

These are all the other challenges I entered my card into!

365 Cards - Buried deep; used Clear gems, and the green gem flower, I haven't used in a while!
CASE Study - Signature Style; I love big images!
CCEE Stampers - Gold- The fun washi paper is filled with it!
Charisma Cardz Challenges - Glitter- my gems 
Craft Us Crazy- Anything goes
Digi Doodle Shop's Best- Anything goes

 I just love this week's challenge at CRAFTY CREATIONS CHALLENGE, as always, because we are using Heidi's oh so cute images from 2Cuterubberstamps. Here is a card I made for my mother-in-law, to thank her for just being her sweet self.

My image is Baby girl-bunny

Translation of sentiment: Une fleur pour ton coeur means A flower for your heart.

Of course our Design team has been busy creating some projects to kick-start your mojo for the RED ORANGE AND GREEN challenge!


 "2 Cute Rubber Stamps are cute and whimsical rubber and digital stamps that can be used for cards, scrapbooks and much more.  Heidi is the owner/designer/illustrator and loves seeing her cute illustrations turned into rubber stamps.  The BEST thing about 2 Cute Rubber Stamps is that “YOU” can get involved in the creative process by voting on her sketches and submitting ideas of your own".   One lucky winner (drawn by random generator) will receive their choice of  either two cling cushion rubber stamps or 3 digital stamps!

Here is a little about me. I have been a cardmaker for more than 6 years now. Enjoy every part of it. It keeps my beloved sister close to my heart, as we started sending cards to each other and then I fell in love with it when my best friend took me to a scrapping session. I have since shown my work on Splitcoaststampers and am now on 3 Design teams. My cards are pretty simple, yet  I try to make them unique and inspiring for the recipient.

I also used Tracy's sketch over at Eat Sleep Stamp. I just love them.

#SFC109 - HANDWRITTEN FRENZY

Hello everyone,

Here I am on a cool monday morning. Boy does Heather, my CHIEF have a fun challenge again over at SQUIGGLEFLY. We are to handwrite our sentiments on our cards. I just love doing that and haven't for a while, so get our your pens and doodle up some funny words, or words of love.  I chose Teresa Ward's beautiful A GOOD READ digital image as my inspiration. The sentiment says,"Friendship is". And on the inside it reads: "like a great novel you never want to let down". Now ain't that just what you would love your friends to think about you!

So come on over and join us. There are always fun prizes to be won.

I wanted to add a precious picture of two of the sweetest things in my life right now. Of course it's Corryn my loving daughter on the far right along with our cutie pie of a  little grand-daughter in the middle and I, the grammy!
