PARTY TIME TUESDAYS #35- Anything Goes

Hello again, it's me the nutty cardmaker ready for another Party Time Tuesdays Challenge. This week is ANYTHING GOES week! So get those cards uploaded on our blog it's loads of fun and did I mention "easy peasy". 

This week's sponsors are Gilli

The Paper Shelter

 and Creative Vision

 I used The Paper Shelter images on both my cards.
This card was made especially for Eula, she was featured last year for turning 108 by the funny ladies from The Teapot Party Tuesdays now on SCS and This is my story blog.  I saw that she has just turned 109  a couple of weeks back, and now that I know she is one sweet, vibrant and generous lady, guess she is like another "far away" friend, so I made my challenge card then, but could not post it! Ugh....I am so glad I got to make a card for her again this year. I sincerely hope she will make it to be a 110.  

And this extra one from Creative Vision.
(posted this one last mixed up with my challenges. Ugh...again!)
Enjoy the day and know that I may not be perfect, but I'm here!

Hello everyone, 

It's monday and monday's are SQUIGGLEFLY CHALLENGE DAY! This week our Chief Heather is all about FLOWER FANTASY. So make a card for any occasion but you need to have flowers on it. Design papers, embellishments or even flower as your focal point image. You can find freebies at Squigglefly. 

Hope you all had a wonderful week-end, I did, spent my whole Saturday with Corryn and Baby MM! Oh, of course Pierre was there also to cook and clean while we gals had all the fun! I tell you, it's a woman's world!

This is the card I made for her arrival. Used this cute little Baby Riley, but for the purpose of my card, we will call her Baby ALICE. I used The Cutie Pie challenge's fabulous sketch, which I saw first on Vicky's gorgeous card from her blog. And it took me to Riley and company blog and this week Heather Prince has us putting on the layer and doing some shabby chic too....believe it or not, I have 11 layers. I just love that I am familiar with these fine cardmakers too so it's kind of like "playing with them".

I have fantastic news this evening. Not later than yesterday Alice, our second grand-baby was born. She is another bundle of joy for us to spoil with a whole lotta' love. She, as her older cousin of almost 6 months Baby MM, has a beautiful head of hair, a bit lighter though, she is also very pretty. That is where their alikeness ends, because she is one big girl, she weighed in at 9lbs 8 ounces and is almost 23 inches long. Here eyes are a beautiful green and Baby MM's are a nutty brown. Pierre and I  are looking forward to alot of happy moments with them both. I am in love...all over again! Ain't life grand!


Good day to all,

I am so happy you dropped by so I could show you my latest creation. As you must know by now, every wednesday I design a card for CRAFTY CREATIONS CHALLENGE BLOG. Deena is hosting, and she ask that we use any kind of fairy.  ie,"We want to see fairies on your cards; short ones, tall ones, wide ones, skinny ones or funny ones! Just make them fabulous!"
 I really enjoy being inspired by the images of our different sponsors. Makes me come out of my comfort zones with styles I don't automatically reach for, but today, this is a card that was made on it's own. I just love the CUTIE PIE  Birthday fairy image I worked with. There is something that makes my heart smile everytime.  

Of course, as you can see this week we are sponsored by Lily ot the valley and they are just up my alley as in inspiration content! WOW

So join us in the chance of winning this gift voucher so you can spoil yourself with these oh so cutie pie images. Good luck to all.

Note: The ribbon is from Circle B enterprises too.

Good morning, I had such a terrific time with Deena last week. We decided that along with our awesome coffees (she makes the best in town with the cool machine she has), long talks (about health, kids, our lives and of course stamping), we hadn't sat down in a while and crafted together. And as always, it was a pleasure. Deena inspired me and she says I inspired her (but I think she was just being nice :). In the end, a good time was had by all...did I mention she took me out to lunch also and that was another fun experience too.

HERE is the card she made for the SQUIGGLEFLY challenge today. I made one also using Lulu Lancaster's Nightie night bunny

 Talk about your Inspiration Challenge on SCS this week, it's from The Creative Cake Academy. I guess these cards were just waiting   to be born! The first sketch I used from A Gem of a challenge. My first time entering their challenge and the sketch is irresistible.

For the 3 bottom cards, the inspiration also came from these sweet cupcakes  but the sketch was from The Case Study September Muse Julie Lacey. The images are all from Tiffany doodles. Thank you so much for stopping by, as always, I really enjoyed playing today!

Hello again,

I said I would be back with alot of birthday cards. This one is for the coffee lover in each of us. The sentiment translated says: "A little latte for your birthday". No coloring was not easy, but somehow with all the inspiration I saw in the MFT thread of September's MFT DT Creative Challenge - NO COLORING-  I knew I had to at least try it.  I used the little Miss you latte - a la mode stamp. I need to get new ones, soooo in love with these.  Also entered this card in the and this week's WSC Getting sketchy #37. I missed playing with their sketches. 
Too many sketches, so little time!

Other challenges:
Crafting for all seasons- Birthday card
Ruby's rainbow - For a girl 

Thank you for stopping by, it always brings me sincere joy. 


Hello everyone,

PARTY TIME TUESDAYS #33 - Ribbon, Trim & Fiber Oh my!

Hello everyone,
This week at PARTY TIME TUESDAYS we have a special sponsor and that is our own Jen Scull. I used her COFFEE GIRL digital image as inspiration. The challenge is all about RIBBONS' TRIMS & FIBER...oh my! 
Our sponsors this week are:

Jen's Digi's

jends digi

I would like to tell you a little about myself and my company. My name is Jennifer and I am the owner and creator of I have been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil. I have done many jobs in my life including being a hair dresser for the past 20 years but art has always been my passion and my love. I am in art galleries through out Ohio with my fine art but cartooning is a huge passion of mine. I have created jensdigistamps to give creative people fun images to work with. I also love meeting people who use my images and I am always looking for new ideas. 
Be sure to check out my work at and feel free to contact me with any questions or ideas you may have.

Tiffany Doodles

Hi! I'm Tiffany, owner of TiffanyDoodles. My background is web design, graphic design & photography. I have been self employed for nine years and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my work! Since childhood, I've always been creative and taken great pleasure in drawing and painting. In 2009, I discovered the stamping and paper crafting world and just fell in love!! In a very short order, I began transforming some of my drawings and doodles into "digis". It has truly been a joy to share them with folks. I get so thrilled every time I see something new that someone has created with one of my stamps!! Each design is like a child of mine and it's really neat to see it all grown up and out in the world being all it can be... LOL!
All of my digital stamps are originally created by me and of the multiple styles I offer, most are hand-drawn images. Some are brushed up in Photoshop using the pen tool to produce very clean lines and others are left with a sketchy, rustic, hand-drawn look. An additional digi-style is one that I've dubbed as PhotoSketches and these are images from my photographs which I transformed into sketches with a little help from Photoshop. These beauties make splendid realistic images for stamping!
One of the ways that I wish to say "thank you" to all of the folks that follow Tiffany Doodles is by offering a brand new Freebie every Thursday. I've received a hefty response from this, which has encouraged me to continue creating even more!! I hope you find something you like here!

Circle B Enterprises
My name is Veronica Baker thou I am known in the Scrapbooking world as Just A Pac Rat. I am the owner of Circle B Enterprises Scrapbooking and more store and Spur's Computer Cures in Webb City, MO.
I used to have around 4000 Scrapbook related items listed on Ebay for almost 10 years, but about 8 months ago I decided to go strictly my own website and store front. This decision was mostly made because of Ebay's new price increase. I like to keep my prices low (presently 50% off retail prices) and just couldn't afford to do it on Ebay anymore. I am slowly but surely getting all my inventory listed online at
I hope you will come visit my little store often and watch it grow! Also visit me at my creative blog where I show what I have created for challenges and Operation Write Home!

Good evening again to all! I just had to come back with another post for today. I am so proud to be using this new image I got from my dear friend Moonrise (Deena). She is the artist that drew this young woman watching the raindrops fall. I thought that she looked like someone who was thinking about having a heart to heart with a friend. I also used today's midnight madness sketch for this card too. You can stop by Deena's blog and see what else she has for you to admire. I love her style of drawing, soft and subtle lines too. :) Peggy

Enjoy and thank you so much for stopping by.


Good evening everyone! I made this card for a friend's mom. She loves flowers and thought this beautiul Dogwood Branch digital stamp from Tiffany Doodles
was just the right choice for her. Used this week's Midnight Madness sketch . Don't you just love that dp, the background Cardstock one is Going gray from SU, the dp is also from SU. The polka dotted one is from a sweet friend Brat Cards. Enjoy your evening everyone! Thank you so much for stopping by! Peggyxo
Another challenge:
Freshly brewed - Something new - mine is polka dot dp.
