Girlfriends!!

Hi friends!!  It's the middle of the week and time for a new Challenge over at Fresh Brewed Designs.
Do you have a special friend that you love to send cards to, just because...?  Well, this week the Challenge at FBD is a Theme - Girlfriends!!  We all have them, those special friends that make life that much better!!  This is a great time to make that special friend a card =)

I also have the privilege of using a new release new TODAY that fits this theme perfectly!!  Funny thing is, when I saw the image it so reminded me of a favorite photo I have of my BFF and I taken a handful of years ago.  Sadly, two years ago it was her time to leave this earth but Praise God one day I will see her again in Heaven!!  What a celebration that will be!!

Here is the pic of me and my BFF Juanita, (I love back shots)...


And, here is my card using Heather's fabulous new image!!

Fresh Brewed Designs with Ribbon and Twine!!

Hi friends!!  It's the middle of the week and time for a new Challenge over at Fresh Brewed Designs.
Don't you just love to use ribbon and twine??  I sure do!!  I also love buttons, but that's another story...   This week the Challenge at FBD is to use Ribbon or Twine (I suppose you could even use BOTH...).  I almost always add one or the other to my cards, so this Challenge was right up my ally (and I added a button...  SWEET!!)!

I don't know about you, but my life has gotten crazy busy lately.  I don't have as much time for creating cards as I used to, but it brings me such peace, I feel like I need to create a card every now and then.  I tend to keep my cards clean and simple and ribbon or twine dresses them up just right!!  Love the added dimension they bring!!  Am I babbling...?  Okay, on with my card...

I just love this cute little monkey image (I happen to love bananas too...).



So, You can see Monkey in a Tree (and many other awesome images, by clicking >>>HERE<<<

I hope you will head on over to Fresh Brewed Designs and play along with us!!  You could WIN this adorable image, or any other of Heather's images - the choice is yours, but you do have to play to have a chance to be this week's WINNER!!

Wishing you all a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by!!

Blessings to you all!!

Fresh Brewed Designs - Color Challenge!!

Fresh Brewed Designs


Hey there friends!!  Happy Wednesday!!  There's a new Challenge brewin' over at Fresh Brewed Designs!!




This week's Challenge is a COLOR Challenge!!
Once I saw the colors, I knew just the image I wanted to use...  Image #1819 - Beach Sweetie.  This little ice cream girl is a favorite image of mine, and how cute is she in her green polka dot bikini!!  You can see her (and many other awesome images, by clicking >>>HERE<<<
For my card I chose some color appropriate papers from my stash and some green polka dot ribbon and green Ric Rac.  I was having some trouble with my camera and couldn't seem to get the ribbon to show it's true color - lime green =(  but I promise you friends, it is green!!  I colored the image up with my Copics, and paper picked her cute bikini.  I then added this simple sentiment "Happy Anything Day".  I think Ice Cream makes any day a happy day, don't you agree??

Here is my card...



I hope you will head on over to Fresh Brewed Designs and play along with us!!  You could WIN this adorable image, or any other of Heather's images - the choice is yours, but you do have to play to have a chance to be this week's WINNER!!

Wishing you all a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by!!

Blessings to you all!!
