Fusion Challenge !

Hi and Happy Saturday!! I'm popping in for a quick post this morning. I have a ton of running around to do for Destiny's Baby Shower tomorrow!! I'm will take lots of pictures!! I'm so nervous! I want everything to be perfect! I made a card last night for Fusion Card Challenge! If you haven't played this challenge , you should, it's so fun!!!
I used a stamp set from Avery Elle called Laurels Stamp Set. The ink I used is Hero Arts (Love the colors). I really want to invest in some Avery Elle Pigments...Like I don't have enough different sets...I need 1 more lol!!
I know a really simple card for me...It's really hard to do! Just like people who do CAS cards say it 's hard to add things to a card, I find it hard to stop lol! But it's fun to step out of my comfort zone every now and then right?
Have a fabulous weekend friends! Hugs, Char

City Crafter Challenge # 204 Take Note

Hi Friends! This week Kirsty is our wonderful hostess and she has chosen the theme:
Take Note (make your own note book, note pad, altered one, sticky note pad is good too, or make a project with the word NOTE)

Here's my little notebook :-)
A few close ups. As you remember I took that Marion Smith class a few weekends ago and it was a blast! Her and her husband were so nice!! I haven't finished my mini cover yet, but will share when I do. Meanwhile, they was alot of her fabulous paper there, so I picked some up to make my notebook with! I love the smooth texture of her paper, it's unlike any paper I have felt before , it's smooth and thick, great for all projects!


 The back

The little ART JOURNAL stamp is from a clearance rack at a little scrapbook store at the coast...I think it was $1.50, and it came in handy for this challenge :-). I love a great deal!
This month's Guest Designer is : Slywia be sure and show her some love :-)
Please be sure to stop by City Crafter also and see what the awesome DT made!!
Have a great week! Hugs, Char

For you my friend!

GoodAfternoon! How's your week going? Mine is good :-) I've been having fun coloring lately with distress markers!. I've decided that if you want to color with them, you need the right consistency of water and color.


The back ground is stenciled with colored molding paste and then I sprayed the top  with Mr. Huey's. This adorable fox is from Reverse Convetti, and she's called Freida Fox !
Well, the baby shower preparations are under way...I am in the process of making 45 stork's! More on that later lol!
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Char

Happy Birthday The card concept 6

Hi friends! Today I''m playing with a challenge over at the card challenge 6. It's a fun challenge where you make a birthday card using one of the designers styles! They spell out the difference between the different styles, but I'm really not sure where I fit, but I went under the clean and layered, or shabby? What do you think?

Of coarse I used some new Crate paper along with some PTI. I cute the banner with my Silhouette. Here's the link to play along here !!

Hi Friends! I hope your getting better weather! It's like spring here, but we need more rain, it's suppose to be 80 this weekend! I am going to have the grand kids on Friday and my dd is staying with me for a few days! I have a baby shower to go to this weekend for my nephew and his wife on Saturday. I can't wait!
This little number was made with Crate paper. I love this sweet line! I have a feeling I'll be making a baby album with this :-) Destiny decided to name the baby Kinley Blake! She is moving around and kicking like crazy! Her baby shower is a month away and I have so much to do still! I think I need Audrey out here to help, she is a great decorator!

Some pics of Destiny and her belly!
I got a few more pictures of the girls:-) I love these two soooo much, and I feel so blessed to have another on the way! Destiny says only one, she's good with one...but you know us grandma's.....we need, want more!

Have a wonderful Day! Char

City Crafter Challenge Week # 202 Beautiful Rainbows

Hi Friends! I have anyways been fascinated with beautiful rainbows, and it's also close to St. Patty's Day , so, I thought rainbows would be a great challenge!! With all the sunny/rainy days here, we've had some rainbows and they are just beautiful! So, that's what prompted me for this week's challenge! I hope you have some fun with this and join in :-) Char
Rainbows!! (make a card or project using rainbows)
I wanted to make a shaped rainbow card, but in all my stash I didn't have a rainbow die, and was to lazy to cut it on my Silhouette, so I did the next best thing...I took out my circle dies and cut out circles in all the colors, glued them on top of each other, then cut off the bottom. It was actually very easy and quick. I did the same for the card itself, I cut a circle with folded card stock.

This week's Guest Designer is Sylwia !! Please stop by and say your congrats!!
And please stop by City Crafter and see the talented DT's creations!!
I hope you can play along this week, I Love seeing you girls there
:-) Hugs, Char
