Mother's Day Card for COF

Good Evening Friends!
How was your weekend?  Mine was very nice!  Brandon attended his first dance at the Middle School & Bianca and I just hung out doing girly things.  We had a great time and I'm looking forward to our next girl time together!!!

Anywhooo, my post is for the SCS group I belong to named Crafters of Faith.  This month we were challenged to make a Mother's Day card that is 5x7 in size, uses at least 1 die cut & have a matching envelope.  As you can see I do not have a matching envelope yet because I'm a bit challenged with figuring out the size I need for it via my Simply Scored tool.  It's probably really easy to figure out & once I sit down with a clear head.....I won't waste so much cardstock!

I used Rose Red as my base along with Regal Rose, Whisper White & Basic Black.  Vintage Vogue, Fifth Avenue Floral & Full of Life were my choices for stamp sets & I used one of my fave Re-Inker techniques for the rose and I LOVE how it came out!  I hope you enjoy it too along with the rest of the creations the girls made.  You can find the links to their blogs on my left sidebar.

Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the evening!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,

Daddy Daughter Dance....

Good Morning!
Well, as you can see from the pics posted above; what kind of weekend we had here!  Shopping for the perfect dress & accessories to go with it, visiting the salon to have pretty hair for the evening and finally the DANCE!!!!!

Bianca was so excited to go to her first dance with her father!  They had so much fun & I can't wait to see the professional pic from that night!  She went with her best friend Julianna & her Marine Dad.....I was told that they were glued at the hip the entire night LOL!!!

While they were out dancing the night away; Brandon & I went bowling and had a few rounds of Laser Tag. This was my first time doing the whole laser tag thing but I tell ya; it was really fun!  I had no clue as to what I was supposed to be doing & he shot me plenty of a matter of fact; I think I was actually killed by him LOL!!!  We had a blast & I'm looking forward to another fun weekend like the one we just had!!!!!!!

I plan to get back to my craftiness....I say that loosely because every time I make a plan.....something comes up so I'm just going to do it!  Thanks so much for stopping by & I'll be back later!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,

Crafty Gals April Challenge

Good Morning!
Geez, where does the time go?  It has been a month since I posted & I truly apologize....I'll explain in another post later.  I'm just glad to have the opportunity to share a quick project with you this morning!!!

As the title of my post says; this card is for the Crafty Gals Challenge.  Our host this month is Diane & her challenge is as follows: Since April is supposed to be a rainy month in most of the country, I thought we would try a "water" challenge. My challenge to you is to incorporate water in some way on your card. It can be rain, puddles, ocean, sea, beach, lake, bathtub or anything else you can think of. In addition to the water, I want you to use ribbon, brads and patterned paper on your card. I can't wait to see your creations and I hope you all enjoy this month's challenge.

Soooo, I decided to use one of my fave retired Stampin' Up! sets called Bubble Queen because this card is also for my girlfriend Kathy's daughter Stephanie who's turning 19 on Easter.  I kept my design very simple but I did enjoy coloring that image & adding glitter to the bubbles....that's always a LOT of fun!  I hope you enjoy my lil' project as well as the rest of the Crafty Gals:

Well, I'm off to start my day & finish up the kiddos Easter Treats.  Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
