The mini note tote technique I got from Michelle Wooderson on SCS.

The three green turtles all have glassy accents on the shell to make them shiny.

My inspirational quote that a dear friend sent to me, just when I needed it most:

We must have courage to bet on our ideas, to take the calculated risk, and to act.
Everyday living requires courage if life is to be effective and bring happiness.-Maxwell Maltz

Another Hip Hop Hangover!

Hip Hop Hangover

Welcome! I hope you all had a great week! I'm so glad its Friday. Plus we have a three day weekend that is very much needed! Onto the good stuff:

This card was made for Unity's No Sour Grapes challenge to use white, black and purple. I needed some Easter cards made so I pulled out Unity's Bitty Easter Blessings set. It's so cute! This card uses Bazzill, Stampin' Up! ink, bleach and ribbon. Easy!

This next card was for Unity Addicts Challenge to use orange, brown, pink and turquoise. Again, another Easter card using the same stamp set as above. Love it! Supplies used here are Bazzill, cuttlebug, pink flock, Stampin' Up! ink and not sure about the patterned paper.

Thanks for looking and don't forget to stop by tomorrow to see my World Record Blog Hop project! I can't wait to see everyone's projects, we're talking major inspiration! Also on SCS is the mini VSN! Love VSN!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Combat Cropper Challenge

Anyone up for a challenge? Check out for a new challenge every week. I will be posting my submission in a day or two. I love challenges. This one involves doing something new, something you have been afraid to try before. Not sure what I'll do as I've pretty much tried everything! I'll really have to think about this one! If you participate I would love to see a link to where you post it. PLEASE!!!

Have a great day!
