I like this card. but I can see I was in a hurry.http://jentapler.blogspot.com/2009/03/blogoversary-challenge-big-blog-candy.html and I think since it's the right colors it'll go to the Our Creative Corner Challenge, more mustard bashfull blue and not quite navy were the colors.

Wouldn't it be fun to enter a card in more than one challenge. I could feel so puter literate i wouldn't know what to do. I was bumming around PCP and found this ... http://cinemasaturdaycreativechallenge.blogspot.com/2009/03/cinema-saturday-creative-challenge-25.html Challenge because it's from my favorite movies 007. and I happen to have a Gold card when would that ever happen? They are giving away blog candy from Taylored Expressions. Which would be great to win.

Guest Designer Challenge CDS

Wohoo! Another blog entry today. This one is for the Guest Designer Challenge for Clear Dollar Stamps. It would simply be a dream to be picked, but a cowgirl never knows when something great can hapen. Like just a minute ago, my favorite neighbor brought down homemade, fresh from the oven, my diet killer, Cinnamon Rolls. Yeah, am I lucky or what??


Hi, from a snowy spring day in Iowa. and Why am I so happy? Cause I'm scrapping! Here's my entry for the CDSWCC12, which was to take your LEAST favorite color and make a monochromatic card. I do not like gold. I have no gold fixtures in my home, and feel like shiney brass is just gross. So this card is not my favorite, but I like some techniques on it. I like the mixture of stars, and the three brads I had to make gold with glitter.

OCC Challenge

OCC challenge. I haven't done one of these challenges before, but Lori from CDS is giving away $ for STAMPS!! So I had to try. Well, I pulled out the sewing machine, and can you hear the cussing? This cowgirl really doesn't like to sew anymore. Actually there's a long list that also includes cooking, and dieting. You know things you have to do, but don't like. The best part of this card is my new EK Success edge punch I bought at Michaels with a COUPON. I knew I had to make something with it tonight. Ok off to bed.

Yes another blog today! This fits with all I got done today. I am a crazy woman with this great weather. Washing windows, picking stuff in the yard, burning tree limbs, stop already. ok so now the card. I'm so excited to see brown on the color challenge so I could use this stamp set. and yuppers that's tin foil. now don't LOL, but i actually tried to bite the foil. now everytime I look at this card my teeth hurt. ouch. :-0

My boys back from "drive your tractor to school day" for FFA. 8 tractors came up town and they cruised the square.
I always keep my camera by the door, and a small digital in my purse. You never know when a good picture will come along.

FIRST DAY OF SPRING!! The calves are running in the pasture, the cat is going to have kittens, and the grass is turning green. I am TGIF and having friends down for the night. Celebrate Spring!
I might be inspired to get out some flower stamps. I might have ONE somewhere. With all boys, and being such a tomboy, i only like real flowers that smell.
enjoy my Bomb shell girls..

Made a card for birthday with Bombshell Stamps. Inside says, it's your birthday. I like the ribbon.

Hi Happy Saturday night. I'm home since my oldest is out on the town, he's 16. Chasing cowgirls, i suppose. Thank goodness for my weekend color challenge from Clear Dollar Stamps. Sarah from Iowa on PCP said use your good stuff, don't save it. (I'm paraphrasing). I took it to heart and broke out these felt stars I got from the Chariton Scrapbooking store.
Check out Sarah's blog , http://auntbeespickles.blogspot.com/ . She makes beautiful cards. I love how this card turned out. He's such a cute buckskin pony, but I wish I had some black floss on hand. The mane and tail was hand stitched with embroidery floss. Then taped on the back to hold it in place when I cut and seperated the floss with my SU hole punch. We had some company over the weekend, so just got this done. And I still have 7 invitations to complete tonight. Now that the weather is officially gotten warm, we'll be riding horse every chance we get. Yeah!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

I've been hard at work in scrap seclusion trying to finish up my 20 year class reunion invitations. Yes, purple and gold are our colors, but we are also doing mardi grais.

Just a quick sympathy card. Embossed the background and then sponged over the top in three shades.

CDSWCC9 Weekend CDS Color Challenge

There's a bit more "white space" in this card than I usually do. I'm not crazy about my colors. Taking a picture of your creations really points out every little fault. But I still love my horsey and those Clear Dollar Stamps.


I really like the layout for my son's braces. As soon as I found out he needed braces I started saving for them and of course finding scrapbook stuff for this page. Needless to say our dentist caters to a scrapbookers.
