Happy Wednesday!!

Hi Everyone!

I had the most relaxing last couple of days. I spend Saturday with my hubby, girls, parents, sister and nephew. It was so much fun. It's hard to get all of us to spend an afternoon together. My nephew is 7 months old. He is such a little cutie. I posted pictures on him on my Facebook page. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, I didn't do much. It was soooooooo nice. I love having days like that.

Since today is Wednesday, that means it's time for the Diedrich Dare. This week 9 year old Madelynn gave us a super easy sketch to use. I used this sketch to make a card for my husband's cousin. He enlisted in the Marines and is in boot camp now. We just got the ok to send him cards. I hope this isn't too girly. LOL!!! I don't want him to get harassed. LOL!!! The stamps are from The Greeting Farm.

Make sure you stop by The Diedrich Dare team to see what they created. If you want to play along this week, you can upload your project to your blog or online gallery. Then link it to Mr Linky on the Diedrich Dare blog.

We have a new daredevil. Please welcome Andrea to our group!!

I wanted to pop in and show you a card I made for Farm Fresh Fridays at The Greeting Farm. I submitted my card Tuesday night but I wanted to post it on my blog too. I believe entries had to be submitted by Wednesday. The is the second challenge I've entered. I really want to win the Sweet Tooth stamp set. LOL!!! It's so cute. Mercy gave us a pretty easy sketch to follow. So I had to enter the challenge.

I hope you have a great day!!

Dare and Crazy for Challenges


I am the featured stamper this week over at the Diedrich Dare blog! :-)

This brought a tear to my eye. Jessica's little Ava did her very first sketch for us. She is only 4 only years old and did an AMAZING job. I can't believe is she is old enough to do this. Look at how cute she wrote her name. Awwwwww!! A little side note. Jessica and I are cousins/BFFS, LOL!!! We really enjoy watching each others kids grow up. We have gone through every one of our kids milestones together. So this is a big deal for Ava. Great job Ava!!!!!! I'm so proud of you!

I am also submitting my card for the Crazy for Challenges blog. Every Saturday they post a new challenge. This week's challenge was to make a Valentine's themed card. That fit perfectly with my Diedrich Dare card.

I used Flutter Anya from The Greeting Farm for my card. I also used Jessica's stamp set Butterfly Wishes for the sentiment.

A Dare and A Challenge

Happy Wednesday!!

I had such a nice family day. My girls were home from school and my husband is still off of work. We took him to physical therapy in the morning then we came home and hung out. We played games together, talked and had fun. I love days like this.

On to my card.........I am combining two challenges. The first is for The Diedrich Dare. This week Jack (who will be 8 next month!! sorry, Jess) gave us a super easy sketch to use. I did flip the sketch. You can see the sketch on the blog. Jessica is giving away a grab bag of Unity stamps!!!! If you want to enter for your chance to win these stamps, upload your card to your blog or online gallery and link it to Mr. Linky on The Diedrich Dare blog.

Challenge #2!! I am entering my card in The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Friday. The challenge was to make a monochromatic card. I used shades of my favorite color, purple!! Oh no! I just went to the post to link it to my site and noticed cards have to be uploaded by Wednesday. I hope I'm not too late!!!
