PTT70 - Anything Goes

I chuckled a little when I saw this little cutie...I thought the title should be "mum's the word" because of her lack of a mouth!  Too funny...I know, I have a weird sense of humor! 

We have our popular Anything Goes challenge this week at Party Time Tuesdays!  In addition, I've used the sketch from this week's Sketch Saturday - #209...it was fun to add some texture and shape to this card! 

If you would like to join us this week at the party, you can visit HERE for more details!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Graduation Day at Paper Pretties

It's that time of year again...so many fresh young faces graduating!  Whether it be from preschool, kindergarten or college, it is all excitement.  Today, we have this little cutie from Fawn to debut today.  I've paired her with an older sentiment from Seuss Truths, and it says, "Today is your day--your mountain is waiting."  I love it!!  When you graduate, you feel like you are faced with a mountain, but you are so ready to climb it!  What feelings at that time!

Paper Pretties Monday Challenge - Use Your School Colors

Boy, does this take me back -- to my cheerleading days at my alma mater -- Frewsburg Central School.  Never heard of it?  Well, that is not surprising, but I had some very fun times there!  And, I had to color this fun little cheerleader as closely to my uniform as I could.  What fun times!  Technically, our school colors were blue and gold, but all of our uniforms somehow morphed into light blue, dark blue, and white.  I wonder if they ever officially changed that?  HMMMM....

Bust out your school colors and join us today...it can be any school, so no worries!  Check out the samples and details HERE for some inspiration.  Or, just take out an old yearbook and relive the golden years!

Plum Crazy for PTT68

You know what they say about being a day late and a dollar short?  Well, that would be me today!  I'm so sorry!  Life is crazy here...AGAIN!  I don' think that I can win! 

This week, we have a photo and color challenge at Party Time Tuesdays.  You can see the pic and the colors above.  I had a difficult time, but this should be proof positive that everyone can use the above challenge and be able to make a successful card!

Paper Pretties Monday Challenge - Use Ribbon

Just another manic Monday!  Yes, it is, but I'm alive, and that is a good thing!  Just kidding!  Well, I am alive, but you know!  Today, we have a challenge to use ribbon...notice that I don't have any ribbon on it?  Well, I was making 6 different cards yesterday trying to get ahead on some challenges, and I just messed a whole bunch of stuff up!  It was crazy!  I will just pretend that the strip of red paper is just paper ribbon!!  See, I can make it work!

PTT66 Ribbons Galore

We are celebrating your special day at Party Time Tuesdays...so sorry for the delay in my post!  I went back in late last night to check on it, and I had the wrong date in my post ahead option.  YIKES...where is my brain lately!  I turn 40 in a week and a half, and I believe that early onset has kicked in (hehehe). 

Our challenge this week is to use two ribbons on our cards, and we have some fabulous sponsors including:  Digi Stamp Characters; Stitchy Bear; and Sassy Studio Designs.  There are lots of fabulous prizes to be had! 

I went fairly simple with my design today, and the ribbons are layered on top of one another (Real Red satin and Night of Navy grosgrain).  The image is colored with Copic markers, and I use both Nestabilities and SU punches to accent the card.  The sentiment is from Woodware USA.
