This week's projects & challenges...

I'm feeling super productive this week! I finally finished my tags for Linda's (ScrapChica) Tag Swap! Here they are:
Front of The Greeting Farm themed swap tag. (Sorry Linda, I know they're suppose to be exactly the same,
but since we were making nine, I took this chance to practice hair coloring!)
I love my raven haired beauty best, I added a little
blue and really liked the look :)

Linda asked that the back of the tag include a
"baseball trading card" kind of look to it.
So I added a mini image and put some info about the stamp on the back.

The next project is a card for another couple of challenges I'm joining:

Challenge #2 - Kellie's sketch

Last, is a little sneak peek of a Lindy's Stamp Gang Design Team project I'm working on.  LSG is about to release a new set of shimmery goodness!  The set is called "Naughty&Nice" and you've probably seen the color on FB or the website (which by the way has a whole knew look! Take a look HERE.)  And if you haven't seen them yet, here they are (love the playful names, heehee!)
Afternoon Delight Denim
Passionate Plum
Green with Envy Green
Love at First Sight Lavender
Grab a Guy Gold

Sneak Peek:
KennyK Digi - pretty naughty huh!
Colored skin with copics,
the rest will be colored with Lindy's!

Back so soon...

Yes, here I am, back so soon! Hahaha! Just finished another project that I want to submit for another couple of challenges, and I'm terribly close to missing the deadline so here it is:

I created this little bugger for two challenges.
The challenge was to make it 
LOL! Well, I think this is pretty darn cute,
and I used the BoBunny Gabrielle Collection
which is just chuck full 'o butterflies!

This is their first challenge and
the sketch is awesome!

Oh! And guess what? I made that flower myself! I was inspired by my friend Friday after she gave me a little treat bag filled with goodies, and adorned with an adorable hand-made crocheted flower.  Well, I can't crochet, and I'm not very good at sewing, but I gave it a shot anyway!  Goodness, I worked all day (okay, not counting breaks for eating, restroom, and mid-day nap lol!) and came up with 4 flowers.  The one I used here consists of lace, tulle, and a single pearl.  I sewed it all together, and I'm pretty proud of the results... I'll post the others soon, ACTUALLY... I'll go ahead and post them now... woohoo, I'm on a rollllll, on fire! Just like the Japanese goalie of the women's soccer team... LMAO!  Okay maybe NOT that HOT! But here it is, let me know what you think!
I made this one for Friday.  I was going for Shabby Chic... what do y'all think?
This one was for my sister. 
And these are all 4, I only have one left that's not been used yet.

Well, my friends, thanks for stopping by again! Please leave a comment!

Hello My Bloggy Friends!
Just a few things I thought I'd share... First, you all know how I LOVE KennyK, well, they're celebrating their first year anniversary with a Blog Hop and a Challenge with some amazing prizes! So you should definitely check it out.  They're also offering great Dollar Deals on some of their Digi's and a cute little FREEBIE!  Of course I entered the challenge, here's my submission.

I enter ALL the time and never win, but I'm hopeful that someday "Mr. Random.org" will pick me!

     Copic:   Skin- E000, E00, E21, E31, R02, R20

I also used some Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst in
Fuzzy Navel Peach, a flower punch, and a little bit of twine.

Second, I wanted to share another bit of exciting news... I was ever so graciously allowed to join the fabulous Lisa Sumpter as a Guest Designer at Paper Craft Journey!  Lisa hosts challenges every other week.  They post on Thursday, and announce the random winner 13 days later on a Wednesday.  I've been participating in a few different challenges, and I've been having loads of fun!

have meet YOU!
Next, and slightly more difficult (7 things that won't put y'all to sleep, lol!)

2.  My kids are my pride and joy, and nothing I have done, or will ever do, can 
     compare to that sense of accomplishment.
3.  I love my job, and I'm lucky to have found some of my best friends at work!
4.  My BFF Lisa, has been my BFF since we met in 3rd Grade!!!! (over 3 decades
