I can't believe that Halloween is just around the corner!  Seems like it was just a 105 degrees the other day.  Yep we had a really hot, dry summer here in the midwest.  Yuck!  The temps are back down into the 60's which I love.  Because Halloween is just a couple of weeks away, the challenge this for night at Dream Valley Challenges is Halloween.  Create anythink you like as long as it is Halloween themed. 

I choose to make a car for my nephew this time around.  I'm not sure that I will be able to see him between now and then so I am putting a package together to send him.  What kid doesn't like to get a  package in the mail.  I didn't use any stamps this time around.  Instead I cut images from a K and Co. Halloween paper pad that I had yet to use.  I added little googlie eyes for some added character.

I thought they were pretty cute little ghosts.  Now it's your turn!  Go check out what the rest of the DT has created for you and then get to work on your own creation!  Can't wait to see everyone's designs.  Have a wonderful Sunday!

Save the Hooters!

The newest challenge at Dream Valley Challenges is Breast Cancer Awareness "Go Pink".  My grandmother had breast cancer many many years ago.  Thankfully she was a survivor!  I am lucky not to have any friends or family that are touched by breast cancer.  Statistics indicate that this won't always be the case.  I got this stamp because as my friends and I get older we will have to start getting mammograms.  I thought this would be a cute stamp for sending reminders!

Digital Stamps are from Whimsie Doodles.  They are too stinkin' cute. 

Make sure to head over to Dream Valley Challenges and see all the other wonderful creations by the rest of the DT!  Can't wait to see all of your creations!

Hugs and Happy Sunday!

Where did the summer go!

I must apologize!  It has been months since I posted anything.  The summer was just crazy busy and now it's over.  The kids are back in school.  I'm starting to have more of a schedule now.  I finally was able to create something for a few challenges.

Patterned papers are from the Fine and Dandy collection by MME (6x6).  Image is from Saturated Canary.  Rhinestones are by Spare Parts and the lace is by Recollections.  The sketch was from Mojo Mondays but I missed the deadline.  I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:

Saturated Canary #25  - dotty
Flutterby Wednesday #204  - Birthday
ColourQ #153 - colors

Thanks for stopping and be sure to check back next weekend for a DT creation for Dream Valley Challenges!

Dream Valley Challenge - CASE the DT

Yep it's time for a new challenge at Dream Valley Challenges.  It's time to pick out one of the DT's creations and CASE it.  I made "Congratulations" card with my Cricut.  It's a flower shape card cut from a metallic lavendar cardstock.  The patterned paper is from Basic Grey - Sweet Threads.  The butterflies are an MS punch and I stickled them from some more sparkle.  The banner was stamped with a stamp from MSE - Handwritten

 A little bit tighter shot so you can see more of the shimmer.

Now head on over to Dream Valley Challenges to see all the beautiful creations by the rest of the DT.  Pick out the one you want to CASE.  Make sure when you link up, you indicate which member you CASE'd.  To all you mom's reading this today, have a wonderful Mother's Day!

Good Saturday evening all!

DH was napping so I got to go play in my craftroom this afternoon.  I managed to finish up my DT creation for the new challenges starting tomorrow at Dream Valley Challenges .  Be sure to check back tomorrow morning.  Today I created a card for one of my co-workers who is expecting in the near future.

I used the sketch from Sassy Studio Design's current challenge.  I also used one of their images.  I believe she was called Prego Honey.  I also added some rolled roses as was the requirement for the challenge at The Paper Variety.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peak.

I'd like to enter this card at:
Sassy Studio Designs - #124 sketch

Hope all of you mother's out there have a wonderful Mother's Day tomorrow!
