**EDITED TO ADD REVISED PICTURE (added envelope in the right corner)...also noticed how the lighting really changed how the picture looked...LOL!

I didn't plan on creating anything today as I am really tired from staying out late last night but I saw this sketch and something just popped into my head. So I went a little out of my comfort zone on this without coloring an image *gasp*!!! I hope your not sick and tired of me using foil paper either because I am lovin' it!!
And can you see all the glitter on the embossed paper?...bling bling!!! I also want to mention that I will probably add a sentiment at a later date on the upper right area because it looks a little empty...I just can't think of anything right now.

Unscripted Sketches - Sketch
Secret Crafter - Hearts

Hopefully I will get enough energy to get a few things done around the house and maybe even create a little more! If not, I'll see ya tomorrow!

I also see I have some new followers...thanks for joining me! :)

Toby (TGF CHA Relay)

I had planned on putting a tag under the ribbon but just haven't figured out the exact sentiment I want to use yet. I do know it will cover up the big crack. My paper cracked when I embossed it...yikes! Little cracks look kind of cool but the big one is not that great so I plan to cover it up!

Digi is a freebie for participating in the TGF CHA Relay!
Also putting this in a few challenges:
Crafty Creations - They are having a blog hop right now and the theme is Celebration!
Simon Says - Baby
Digital-Ink Co. - Baby birthday plus red, yellow, green and blue
Saturday Spotlight - Bright colors or use mostly yellow (I chose bright colors!)
Die Cut Dreams - Bears

Fight Like a Girl!

I picked up this digi freebie from Whimsie Doodles awhile back and now I have the perfect opportunity to use it. Jacqui over at Simply Create is offering up some blog candy. She would like for you to make a card with lots of pink on it and then mail it to her and all the cards will go to CLAN. Now I had no clue what CLAN was so after some research online I found out that it is for cancer support services. So this card I thought would be perfect for someone that has just been diagnosed and they need to take charge and fight to beat the aweful disease.

I have used some Martha Stewart papers and colored the image with Copics. Added some pink glitter to her shoes, belt, flowers on hat and pink ribbon logo on her shirt...check out the close-up picture you can see it better! Then I tied some sheer shimmery ribbon on and voila! A cute pink card ready to be delivered to someone that really needs it!

Fab N' Funky Challenge#8 - Use any digi image or sentiment
A Spoon Full of Sugar - freestyle
Crazy 4 Challenges - Pretty in Pink
Get Sketchy#22 - sketch
The Pink Elephant - polka dots, bow and pink
Practical Scrappers - 2 patterned papers

Mer-Ian and TGF CHA Relay!!

Whew...I made it just in time! I kept this card simple due to time constraints. Thought he turned out pretty cute! HEHE!
I think the embossing is a little hard to see...I even embossed the waves! I keep trying for a good picture but I don't have the proper setup at is pretty dark and it is also VERY dark outside so this was the best I could do with a make-shift light box...really not even a box just a few pieces of white paper! LOL!

If your interested in picking up this digi for free check out the post here.

EBTKS - Sketch (Had to flip it for the smaller portion to be at the bottom where the waves are located)
2 Red Bananas - Create your own background (Used my Cuttlebug for the paper and added a stamp for the sun)

Mom's crafty work!

I have been wanting to post these for awhile now just haven't had a picture to share until now. Each set contains a scarf and hat of which my mom knitted for me. Aren't they gorgeous?? They are so beautiful, soft and warm!!! I basically wear one or the other everyday! The fall colored one matches a red coat I have and the pinkish blue one matches a beige fleece lined jacket I have with flowers on it!!

Just wanted to give a big shout out to my mom for such wonderful work!!! THANKS...Love ya mom!!
