...and today is another fun day for me, as I have all kinds of awesome new goodies from my spree yesterday. I still can not believe how much I found and how awesome the prices were. WOOHOO!! Next year when I start to second guess myself about getting up so early to go to the SALE, I sure HOPE I remember that it's well worth it!!
Today, I spent some time re-organizing all of my new goodies and I'm so excited and happy to find out that out of ALL that I bought, I only duplicated one Hero Arts Stamp, which I will put into my blog candy pile. Its' this fun "Pom Pom Flower Stamp K5571", which is very popular and one I guess I should be using more, so that I remember I have it!! You can go to the Flickr group and check out all these awesome cards made with this stamp.
My first card today is a Father's Day Card and it was inspired and created for three new challenges. One is over at Crafting by Designs, the Greeting Card Challenge at The Outlawz and also this week's Masculine Challenge over at The Pink Elephant!
I have two much more FUN cards to share and both were inspired and created by the new Baby Theme Challenge being hosted over at the Color Me Creative Classroom. I do not any any grand-babies yet, but do HOPE that dream will come true for me, sooner and later. Hint Hint -- Brian and Meghan, are you reading this???
When I started on this project yesterday, I actually printed out a full page of cute baby digi images and colored them all. Then today, I had to choose which one I wanted to use for my card. It came down to two, so I made a card with each! My first card is a very sweet little card that features a very adorable digi from By Lori Designs.
....and next came this cute little card, also created with a sweet digi image that is from my DigiStamp Boutique Collection. I am also submitting this card to their June Customer Challenge, which you can find HERE!!
Both are really fun and cute and as you can see, I tend to be very fond of little "Girl" babies...Hum??? I guess because I have two boys?? But, I have to say that I have the most awesome sons, Brian and Alex, and I LOVE them both so much!!!! I'm also going to have a new daughter in my life very soon!! That's Brian's fiance Meghan, who I already love and cherish! Looking forward to their Wedding and lots of happiness for their new life together!!
A Little About Me
- Northeastern, Massachusetts, United States
- Purple is my favorite color and ironically - Purple is the Awareness Ribbon color for Fibromyalgia, an illness I personally live with. I had to stop working in 2006 due to Fibro and Degenerative Disc Disease. It's been a tough road at times, but I have a wonderful family and fantastic friends. I am a Mom to two awesome sons (Ages 21 and 26) and a wife and friend to a wonderful Hubby. We live in a tiny coastal community in Massachusetts and have lived here all my life. My hubby and my boys are my whole world and mean every thing to me! I cherish all three of my guys!! I am very lucky to be blessed with wonderful friends. I adore and cherish each of my friends as much as my family! I am an avid card-maker and love all types and stamping, and also love coloring with my Copics. I'm very lucky to have this whole new world on online friends that I've met through my Craft Groups. HUGS TO YOU ALL!!
