Some More Cards...

Just dropping off some cards that I made weeks ago. The first two are using images from my store Paper Cupcakes. So, if you haven't been by my store you should stop by and check it out and also look through the gallery as well. There are a lot of really great projects in it made by some really talented people aka the Design Team aka my friends. "oD

This first image is called "Just Because" I really like this image, but then I find myself saying that a lot after I use them all! It is the first time I have colored a lot of my images if you see them here. I must say it is kind of fun too, to color them for the first time or to see what someone else does with them as well, if I have never seen them used before. Well, I have a lot of them out there like that, so why don't you stop by and buy a few and show me what you can do with some. Also, stop by my blog over TMITA/PCC you can find the link on my side bar, just click on the icon and maybe join in some of our weekly challenges.

This second image is called "Teddy Bear Sunday" I think he is soo cute and super cute all colored up (see, there I go again!). I added some glaze on the lower part of the drips, the cherry and on a few of the dots on the pp; it looks so cute in real life.

This third card I made for a friend that had a baby back in December, OK, I am really slow about posting these, but she didn't even receive it until January! I bought the 3-D sticker of the animals, because, well, you can see how cute it is and so this was a really super fast and easy kind of card. Mindy loves buttons and has an addiction for them so I made sure I added some buttons! She probably is pulling them off and re-using them... LOL.. nope probably not, she has a stash load of them that she probably doesn't need to do that!

OK.. it's late, I have a few more pictures to upload, although they are not my projects I do want to do a special posting, but it is getting late and I am going to bed. Everyone else is already in bed and the house is nice and quiet and still, so I think bed is where I need to be as well!!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look and special thanks if you left me some lovins, I so love reading it!!

BOM Challenge:

I did the layout a few weeks back for the BOM Challenge over at scrapbook.com with my ETG. The challenge was: What's The Word? This challenge is to choose one word that sums up your plans for the new year--how you want to aspire to live, dream, create, etc. This word will set the tone for your 2010 BOM! You can use whatever pictures you like, or no pictures at all! You can include any resolutions if you made any and want to include them. But be sure to tell us your word and why you chose it in your journaling. 25 POINTS!

My word for 2010 was "Focus". My journaling is on the hidden tag that pulls out which is where the "2010" is. The things I want to focus on are: 1) Seeing & realizing my everyday blessings 2) Spending more one on one time with Eric 3) Taking more measures to being healthy with exercise and better choices in eating 4) Building my business 5) declutering certain areas in our home

I can't believe how blue my eyes look in this picture, I swear I didn't do anything to them in the photo program either!! I think the blue paper certainly helps bring out the color! "O)

I kept this simple and clean, I seem to be getting better at this! This was a fairly quick and simply lo too.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Free Digital Image - "Flight Of The Fuschia"

This is my card for Magical Monday over at TMITA/PCC. The challenge was to use this image "Flight Of The Fuschia" and make a card of comfort (thinking of you, sympathy, etc.) I rarely have these kind of cards on hand and also find them one of the most challenging to make. Probably because I always want these type of cards to be just perfect. I was going to do a monochromatic card at first, but decided to add a touch of lavender. I kept this real simple and let my image shine. I just barely met the challenge with that little pearly button! I really liked how this turned out and I just loved all the designers cards for this type of card as well. I certainly will be casing some of their ideas in the future!

Have a peaceful day!
