The Diedrich Dare

Happy Wednesday!!

Tonight, my friend Lora and I are going to Archiver's to take a class. We are making a Glimmer Mist Album. I'm so excited to make it. I love using Glimmer Mist and the album looks so cute!! I'll post pictures on Thursday.

This week, Madelynn gave us another inspiration challenge. She picked a makeup kit from her Mom, Jessica. It was such a colorful set so I decided to make my card colorful!! :-) For today's card, I used my Fairy digi stamp from Paper Make Up Stamps. I LOVE their stamps!!!!!! SO SO CUTE! They have so many images to choose from. I used Mojo Monday 122 for my layout. I flipped the sketch to fit my stamp.

Please stop by The Diedrich Dare blog to see a picture of the inspiration. Also, stop by the rest of the team members blogs to see their creations. If you want to play along upload your card to your blog or online gallery then post the link to Mr Linky on the blog.

Have a great day!!

So Special!!!

Today is Tart and Tangy Tuesday for the Rusty Pickle Digi Delight. Every Tuesday one of our design team members is going to issue a challenge. This week Heather, our awesome DT coordinator, came up with a color challenge. She challenged us to use SU Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue and Cameo Coral. When I first saw this I didn't think I would have the colors. I went searching through my papers to see if I had anything close. As I was searching I was beyond excited to find a SU paper pack that I bought a long time ago. In it was Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue!!! Wooo hooo!! It didn't have Cameo Coral so I found something similar. :-)

I decided to use the girl in the water digital stamp for my card. This is another stamp that reminded me of my girls. In the summer we spend almost every day in the water. Whether we are at the pool or on our boat. We love the water. The Special sentiment is from The Greeting Farm.

I hope you get a chance to play along this week. The Rusty Pickle Digi Delights has some new design team members. Hopefully you can stop by and see everyone's creations.

The Rusty Pickle Tuesday Challenge


I have this post set on auto post because my family and I are in Disney World. Today we are at Magic Kingdom. This is my favorite park. I love everything about it. Seeing the castle as we walk down Main Street. I love looking at my girls faces when they meet the characters. Disney truly is the most magical place on earth!!!

This trip to Disney will be a little challenging for us. My husband is still recovering from his accident. So, we had to rent him a wheelchair. He can't do too much walking. He can't swim or go in the hot tub yet. We won't be able to do as much as we usually do. We are still happy to get away. We appreciate this time together as a family.

On to even more exciting info!! :-) The Rusty Pickle Digis is hosting it's very first Tuesday Challenge. Make sure you head over to the blog to see all the details. For my card, I colored this super cute frog looking at a bee. Isn't he cute?? I hope you stop by The Rusty Pickle Digis blog to check out what the rest of the team did today!!

Have a magical day! :-)

Happy Friday!

This year I am making New Years resolutions that I planning on sticking to. LOL! I really want to get better about blogging my cards or scrapbook pages. I also want to be better about commenting on blogs. I look at blogs almost every day. I go through them so quickly. I need to take the time to make comments. I know how happy it makes me to see comments on my blog. I'm sure most people enjoy getting comments. In sticking with my resolutions, I thought I would share a project I made. I colored this cute FREE DIGI from The Greeting Farm right after Christmas. I am just now getting around to doing something with it. LOL! I plan on using this as an embellishment to my New Year's Eve scrapbooking page.

I hope you have a great weekend!!

The Diedrich Dare

Am I the only one that has trouble coming up with titles? LOL! I can't seem to come up with anything cleaver to say. It's so boring. On a positive not, my titles are direct and to the point. This post IS for The Diedrich Dare. :-)

With that being said it is time for The Diedrich Dare. I really look forward to this day of the week. Jessica, my wonderful cousin/BFF (that's our fun title for each other), has her very talented kids draw up a sketch for us to use each week. This week I used the Ava stamp from The Greeting Farm. This stamp was made to resemble sweet little Ava, Jessica's little girl. I bought the stamp when it was release and this is the first time I've used it. I had to use it now. My family and I will be in Disney World in just a few short days. I wanted color Ava to look like Snow White. We are in Disney mode right now!!

Please stop by The Diedrich Dare blog to see who was the winner of last week's challenge. The winner will receive a prize from Paper Makeup Stamps. I LOVE their fairies!!!!!! If you want to play along this week, upload your card to Mr Linky on the blog. If you use a online gallery please use DDSC18.

Have a great day!!

Happy Wednesday!

I can't believe the holidays are over already. It went by too quickly. My girls went back to school on Monday. They are also back to all of their activities. Our fun 2 week vacation is over. :-( I guess I shouldn't complain. We are going on vacation next week. We are going to spend 8 days in Florida! I can't wait.

Enough about me!! Since today is Wednesday, that means it's time for The Diedrich Dare. Sweet Madelynn wanted to use her Mommy's new Ed Hardy makeup kit as an inspiration for the challenge (see the picture on The Diedrich Dare blog). This week we are excited to announce our first sponsor of 2010 Paper Makeup Stamps. I can't tell you enough how much I LOVE these stamps. OMG the fairies are so cute. I had so much fun coloring her. You have to check out the site to see all of their cute stamps!!!! Make sure you head over to The Diedrich Dare blog to see the prize that Paper Makeup Stamps is offering!!!!

If you want to play along this week, upload your creation to your blog or an online site using keywords DDSC17. Then post it to Mr Linky on The Diedrich Dare blog.
