Fussy and Fancy Challenge 51

Wow, it's been a while since I have posted anything to my blog. My crafty mojo has been missing for quite some time now. I decide to buy this sweet image from The Paper Shelter to make for Fussy and Fancy's Photo Inspiration Challenge. I enjoyed coloring this sweet image called Cookies for Santa


Here's the Photo we would like you to use as inspiration. I  used the tree and pulled out some of the colors for my card.

SISC80 Final StampInsanity Stamps Challenge

Today I am sharing a card I made for the final StampInsanity Stamps Challenge. SISC80 is to CASE a card that you love. 
Since this is the final challenge I decided to do a Twilight card. My love of Twilight is what introduced me to StampInsanity and Beth. Oh and tomorrow a new Twilight (Breaking Dawn part 1) movie is coming out, maybe that has a little to do with it too :). 


 Supplies:
Sentiment from OtherWorldly Loves Set by StampInsanity
SU Card stock, pattern paper and ribbon
Red Kaiser Rhinestones
Heart shaped Swarovski crystal


Here is the card I CASED by Lori Ulrich. I picked this card because I love the color combo and the pleated paper. Check out Lori's blog, her work is stunning.

Today there is a new challenge over at StampInsanity. Challenge 77 is Anything But A Card so I made this magnet for my fridge.

I used the Zen Morgan image to remind myself that I have a goal and eating too much chocolate will not help me get there.

Try a New Technique

Good morning, today I am sharing my card for Fussy and Fancy's Try a New Technique Challenge. I have to say that new techniques alway scare me. I always feel like I am going to mess things up and I hate waisting my supplies. I decided to use my Score Pal to emboss the background paper. Do you think I went overboard on the Glam Rocks? Maybe I did, but I still think it looks pretty cool. The image, Cutie Skull, is from our sponsor MelJen's Design.

Sentiment by Wild Flower Kids

Music Saves My Soul Saturday

It has been quite a while since I played along with Marcia's Music Saved My Soul, I'm not really sure why since I can't do anything unless I have my music on. Well I figured I would play along today. I am sharing a video by Blue October since I saw them in concert on Sunday. 

I had a hard time picking a song, they are my favorite band and I want to share every song from every album with you, lol. I decided to pick "The Feel Again (Stay)" because this song and video have a very strong message.

I hope you enjoy and if you want to here more of their music you can click on my little music player on my sidebar. I warn you that there may be some bad language in some of their songs. I checked this one and didn't hear any. 




ANYMANINAMERICA.COM
is a place for fathers, mothers and children who have dealt, or are dealing with, the issues of shared parenting and child custody to find their voice and speak their mind. 





Here are a few pics from the Blue October concert on Sept. 11,2011 at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA. They aren't the best quality but I wanted to share a few with you.
