The CCEE Stampers Challenge this week is to put something hot on our cards.    That could be hot food, hot weather, etc..   I chose to use the Mark's Finest Paper  Spicy and Hot stamp set.    I had this piece of chili pepper designer paper left from another project I made some time ago so this was a great way to use it.    The inside of the card says "You make a hot and spicy couple".   I think that would make great anniversary card.  We would like for you to join us for the CCEE challenge this week, head on over to the blog and see what the other gals have made and link up your card.

Valentine for the Tea Pot Party

Here is a card I made for the tea pot challenge this week.   I love the color combo of red, black and white which is so perfect for a Valentine.   The dp I used is from a 6X6 pad of Paper Studio paper.
I love the red and black dots on it.

I made this card for I made for the tea pot party two weeks ago.   It is a CAS card, but I really like the simplicity of it.   I used a Our Daily Bread stamp set for it.

Speedy Fox - Doodle a Frame

Another Saturday has rolled around and Speedy Fox and Friends have another challenge ready - doodle a frame.   I really like cards with doodling on them even though I am not good at doodling.    I chose to use the Mark's Finest paper stamp set called "I'm in Stitches".   I hope you will come on over to Speedy Fox and Friends and join us for our challenge today.  I would love to see your doodling.

Twisted Challenge

The challenge for the Twisted Sister's this week is to make a birthday card for a teen and it must have three different shapes on it.  The card I originally made was  for a smaller child so I finally figured out one I could make for a teen.   I think I know the perfect teen girl to send this one to.

Thanks, for coming by and have a great weekend.

CCEE - Punch the Clock Day

Punch the clock day is coming up on the 27th.  Did you know there was a punch the clock day?  I didn't until I saw the CCEE Stampers challenge for this week.    Joanne is our hostess and she has challenged us to make masculine card with some connection to time or clocks.  I have a clock on mine.   I chose to use my nearly almost unused Tim Holtz stamp set and Graphic 45 paper.    I know this looks like a easy card and now that it is made, it is.   It took me two days to figure out what to do to make my card presentable.  I have to tell you this style is totally out of my comfort zone.   I hope you will join us for the challenge today.

Thanks, for stopping by,

Squigglefly Inchies

Here it is, time for another Squigglefly challenge given by Rhonda's Rowdy Rascals.    Use inchies on your card this week.  I decided to use plain inchies with dp and use this Squigglefly image called "Buddies" by Lynne Stansbery.   I do love Lynne's images.  They are really easy to color with the way she shades them.  I hope you will come over to  Squigglefly  to link up your card with inches, maybe you will be the lucky winner of a Squigglefly  image.

Thanks, for coming by today.

Wine and Grapes

This is a card I entered in the featured stamper challenge over at Split Coast and the  Outlawz  CAS challenge.   The twist to the challenge was to add a drink like coffee, tea, soda, lemonade, wine, etc..     I chose to use this Squigglefly image by Lynne Stansberry called "Wine and Grapes".    I absolutely love Lynne's images and if you notice, I color up a lot of her awesome images.

Thanks, for stopping by today.

Speedy Fox and Friends - Use Twine

Speedy Fox and Friends have another fun challenge for today.  It is to use twine.    What better way to use twine than to make a rope for a cowboy?   That was my take on using twine, I bet you have  one all of your own that is totally different.   The Mark's Finest Paper stamp set I used is called "Hey Cowboy".  Come on over to the blog and join us for the challenge.  There is always a nice stamp set given away for one lucky entrant.

Welcome to Day One of Mark's Finest Paper Blog Hop.   Today we are showcasing the new set called "Fantastic Dogs".    I knew when I saw this set, I was going to have some fun with it.   Not only does it have these sweet little dog images, the sentiments are cute, too.  I bet these puppies would like to get a treat out of the canister, but the lid is on  really tight.  ~grin~  I know the puppies in my household love when they hear me rattle the lid on the treat  jar.     I suppose this could be either a treat canister or a fire hydrant.  It is interesting how we all see things differently.   Be sure and hop along with us today to see what the design team has prepared.   Remember the more you comment, the better your chances of winning one of the new stamps sets.   Good Luck.

Speedy Fox and Friends-Make it Move

Here we are for another Saturday Speedy Fox and Friends challenge.  This week we have been challenged to make a  card that has something on it that moves.   It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do and finally I decided on a spinner card.  Thankfully, this one spins really well, the last one I made did not move freely.    I chose to use this new stamp set that will be available in the Mark's Finest Paper Store on Tuesday, called "Oh, Baby".  My friend's daughter is having a baby boy in March and I thought this would work perfectly for a card for the baby shower.    Jump on board and play this challenge with us.  I would love to see what moves on your card.  Check out the nice stamp set over at   Speedy Fox and Friends that they will give to one lucky winner for entering this challenge.   Come back next week for the blog hop to see all the new sets that will debut.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Dogs are Funny Little Kids-CCEE-Outlawz


This card was made for an Outlawz  greeting's card challenge and the rules are to use brads and something new.  We were suppose to tell what we used that was new.  The little pearl brads are new and I chose to use this new Squigglefly image by Lynne Stansbery called "My Doggie".   I thought it was just adorable.  As you all probably know, I love dogs.  I added a Viva Las Vegas stamp for the sentiment.    Dogs really are just funny little kids, aren't they?

This card is also for this week's CCEE Stampers challenge. We were to use a new tool.  I used a new digital image.

Thanks, for stopping by, I hope you got a smile out of this sweet image.

Here is a MFP Sneak Peek

Next week this is a new set  called "Not An Ugly Duckling"  that will be available at Mark's Finest Paper.   There will a total of 6 new sets.  Stay tuned for more sneak peaks this week.  Next week there is a blog hop scheduled so be sure and join the fun.

Squigglefly - Thank You

Rhonda's Rowdy Rascals have a new challenge over at Squigglefly today.   The challenge is to make
a thank you card for a gift received at Christmas.  I chose to use this Heartfelt Posie Bear by Diane Carubia that is a fairly new Squigglefly release.   Is this not just the perfect image to say thank you?  I thought it was.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.   Head on over to and add your thank you card to Mr. Linky to join us for the challenge.

Squiggleflly has a great reward program which can enable you to earn free images and we all like free stuff.  For every $15 you spend you will earn a free image.  On the homepage,  at the upper top right of the page, click on " My Squigglefly" to sign up for your reward.

Speedy Fox - Recycled Christmas card

The challenge over at Speedy Fox today is to recycle part of a Christmas card.    I recycled the front cover of a card that we received this year and added my Santa from the MFP " Holly Jolly" stamp set.
I know exactly who I will send this card to next year, too.  ~smile~    Santa seems a little short so I hope there is a step stool in that little house.  Ha ha.  I am not sure if you can read the sentiment, it says "I finally figured out how you get Santa to stop at your house every year."  I hope you will go through your Christmas cards and  find something on one that you might want to recycle then come over to  Speedy Fox  Blog and join us for the challenge.
