It's an Easter challenge...

Head on over to the Melonheadz Challenge and join in the Easter fun!

The DT have made some super cards for you to enjoy.

Here is mine using Australian Bilby Easter Bundle. I love all the images in this one :)


Every digi on my card was pre-coloured. You can chose to get them black/white as well. This card came together super easy. I printed the chick twice and popped it up. The flower I've had in my stash for years.(like maybe 5 or 6). I layered all the images in word which was pretty easy to do.

The kids were out on the weekend doing an Easter egg hunt so it was super easy to get into the spirit. I love seeing them so excited :)  But wow, did they ever bring home some chocolate! I think the Easter bunny can skip our house this year-lol

The challenge runs for two weeks and the winner gets a to chose a bundle from Nikki's Etsy store.

Thanks for stopping by :)

It's challenge time at Lacy Sunshine

The flowers are starting to come out of the ground so this is a perfect challenge for Lacy Sunshine!-add flowers.

I used a cute little digi that looks soooooo much like my daughter. I had other plans for this digi when I got her,but I think it works well here too.


Isn't she cute :) I am not a fan of orange and pink but in the spirit of clearing out my craft room I stumbled across this card base and decided to use it. I coloured her up with my copic markers and added a flower and sentiment to finish it off.

Thanks a bunch for stopping by, enjoy your weekend :)

Penny' s Challenge-All things new

It's challenge time over at Penny's Challenges and the sponsor is the fabulous Lacy Sunshine!



We were allowed to select an image to use and I picked Haley Hydrangia.

I love Spring. It is the beginning of all things new. It's the season of the resurrection of Jesus.

 When I saw it, it looked like Haley was coming up out of the pot, new, blossoming. I knew what I wanted to do.


To me this card represents dying to self, kneeling at the cross and following Jesus. The dead leaves represent the old, the bright flowers represent the new. We are all works in progress. I even thought about what she is looking at. To me the butterfly is the perfect symbol of a person coming to Christ. I think this would make a lovely Baptism card.

Some of you may look at the card and say 'nice card' and not understand what I mean. That's okay, I just wanted to explain how this card came together :)

Penny's challenge runs for one week. The winner gets 3 Lacy Sunshine images.
Thanks for stopping by

Penny's challenge time!

Hello :)

The challenge at Penny's Challenges is 'feathered friends'.  Such a fab topic for this week as the birds have started to gather again outside our window. Sure we have the odd bird that sticks around for the long winter, but we have tons of birds that enjoy our bush  in the front in spring.

One of the sponsors is Bugaboo Stamps and I had the privilege of using Birthday Peguin-Balloon to make my card.


Head over to the blog and check out the other DT's fab creations :) The challenge runs for one week.
Thanks for stopping by!

Let's hear it for the boys!

It's time to Clear out your stash at the Clear it out blog. 

This week our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps , our theme is boys/use stickers



I always love when we are sponsored by Bugaboo. They have so many stamps to chose from and they are always so fun. This week's card is no exception. Check it out


I had a lot fun making this. So where is the sticker you ask? The bottom row of stars is a sticker from Stampin' Up I've had for a while  years.

I coloured it up with my copic markers and created the sentiment in word. I really hope you'll join us in this fun challenge. Can't wait to see what you've created :)

Melonheadz time!

It's time for another Melonheadz Friends challenge! -Spring

It's Spring, it's Spring, or so they say. I see the flowers trying to bloom. I think at the vary least the snow is gone (keeping my fingers crossed!)

Time to break out those materials and make a springy card.  This sums up how I feel about Spring this year


Get it? Spring is going to come when pigs fly! Gotta laugh or it'll get you down :)

The challenge runs for 2 weeks. Can't wait to see what you create. Last challenge you guys rocked my socks off!

It's challenge time at MelJens'

We just came in from making a snowman-yes a snowman in March! We had a blast and decided to settle in with a snack and the game Trouble.


Then my daughter wanted to craft. Actually she said "Mommy can we craft but with just your craft stuff today?'

Yes, that is a special, special thing for her to do. To give her access to all my craft stuff...oh my!

Well, I gave in and said ' Sure honey' as I secretly prayed I had put away all my stash. You know the stuff you had to have because you LOVE it, the stuff you don't use because you love it!

Here is the card she made using a MelJen's image

She picked out everything herself :) Not bad for a 5 year old!

While there I played around with a freebie Melissa gave out on Facebook this weekend. I'd like to enter it into the MelJen's challenge blog-boys challenge


I coloured it up with my copic makers and added a Recollection border sticker. It didn't fit so I cut it and placed the top portion of it ( the dotted  line) at the top. The sentiment I made in Word and I finished it off with the half pearls in the black circles. So hard not to add ribbon/flowers on it!!

Thanks for popping by :)
