What a great challenge for me, as our weekends are usually filled with them!  I think I've been having a little too much fun though because I threw my back out.  Well not quite sure what I did, but a visit to the doctor's office better figure it out fast!  It's hard to sit and lay and walk....Grrr!

Okay, enough venting.  At Totally Stampalicious we'd like to see your sports projects!  I have used Gus Golf that you can find HERE at the Totally Stampalicious store.  I have made a bookmark.  My daughter helped me out with the photos this week!  Thank you M!

Make sure you head on over to Totally Stampalicious to see the rest of the design team's awesome sports projects!

My Favorite Embellishment Is......

Hard to tell huh?  Generally my cards are in the clean and simple range.  I don't put a lot of embellishments on my cards, mainly because I usually work with what I have on hand to make my card.  I don't spend much on crafting supplies;  the grocery bill just keeps going up and up!   However, when my card needs a little extra something I usually pull out the pearls and rhinestones.  

I have used stamp set Gus and Stella that you can find HERE at the Totally Stampalicious store.

I would like to add this to the anything goes challenge over at Catch the Bug.  I am so honored to work with Jodie's images!  Jodie's images paired with Joycelyn and Becky's sentiments are what make Totally Stampalicious stamps so awesome!

Come on over and play at Totally Stampalicious and show us your favorite embellishment.  Make sure while you are there you check out the rest of the design team's amazing creations!

Ribbons and Bows

Hello again!  It's been a busy weekend of baseball again!  My son's all-star team had a tournament this past weekend.  They only won one game, but I think they are starting to come together as a team.  It's wonderful to see all the improvements!  Best of luck next week with the Area Tournament guys!

Ok, on to crafting! lol  Today at Totally Stampalicious the challenge is Ribbons and Bows.  Make sure you have at least one bow on your creation!  For my card I have used Stampalicious Scarlette that you can find HERE in the Totally Stampalicious store.  

I have colored Scarlette with copics and used some of my daughter's new K&Company papers! :)  The flowers were made out of the same ribbon that is used in the bow.

I would like to add this to the following challenges:

Color Me Creative - big hair
Charisma Cardz - anything goes
Hanna and Friends - 2 patterned paper, one ribbon, three flowers
MarkerPOP - hair

Have a great week everyone, enjoy the 4th of July and all the fireworks!
