Guest Designing Fun!

Hello My Friends! Hope you're all having a wonderful time crafting your little hearts out!
I know I am!  Especially since I was asked by Mai Larsen to be a Guest Designer 
for a fabulous group of ladies! 
I found them at a new Facebook group that I was invited into...
"Creando Con Detalles"
CCD is a group dedicated to bringing together crafting Latina from ALL over.
I've had the opportunity to meet and befriend the sweetest bunch
of ladies from many different latin countries and communities!
Recently the group merged without another lovely group of ladies.
This second group is lead by a very talented and sweet young lady... 
Sherri Baldy
She is the artist and owner of Sherri Baldy Stamps.
I'm flattered to have been invited to create a Mother's Day Card for them.
They sent a lovely assortment of goodies and a couple of adorable digis,
and so I got right to work!
Here's the card I made for them, and some extra info on how it all
came together!

Abby's "Dilo En Español" Challenge #6

It's time for Abby's next challenge!
"Dilo En Espanol" Challenge #6
The theme is use the color BLACK!
Abby will give the winner 50 yards of Twine!
25 yard of black twine & 25 yards of any other color you'd like!
Here's my project... I decided to use a black, purple, and teal combo:

I normally use designer paper... but this time I decided to just go
with plain colored cardstock.  I thought the color combo was striking 
enough and didn't need a whole lot more :)
I'm pretty excited about how it turned out... and
 Abby's senti added the perfect little touch!

If you get a chance you should go on over to Abby's
challenge blog for all of the challenge details.

Have a great weekend filled with Scrappy Good Fun!

I Am Roses ~ YouTube Challenge for April

Hi Guys!
Just wanted to let you all know that I Am Roses has posted
their new challenge for the month of April.
This month's challenge will require a video response attached 
to the April Challenge Video posted on the 
I Am Roses Design Team YouTube channel.
You will be required to use I Am Roses products
to create a new and original flower!
At first, I must say, I was stumped... I mean really,
why make some when the selection is already so 
awesome, right?  But then I got started, and I couldn't stop!!!
It was a lot easier than I thought it would be, and a lot
more fun than I had anticipated!
So here are some pics of the flowers I came up with:

So my friends I suggest you give it a shot, I promise you'll 
have a good ole time... here's the link to the
 I Am Roses YouTube video:

Thanks for stopping by ya'll!

Cheri's Graphicat Sketch Challenge #5

Hello My Friends!
Happy to be enjoying my Spring Break this week!
And I plan on doing exactly what I want to do!
A whole lot of NOTHING!
I'm not going away, not visiting peeps, nothing!
Might not even leave the house!!!
(okay maybe I'll leave for the Michael's sale on Friday)

Well enough of the idle chit-chat...
Cheri, Cheri, Cheri... she just never shuts down!
Even while she's recovering from a few ailments,
she still manages to come up with the coolest sketches!

Here's what I came up with for Sketch #5:

I use an oldie but goodie...
My Mind's Eye - Lost and Found by Jen Allyson
Madison Avenue
6x6 Designer Paper Pad

Cheri's "Just sittin' here Thinkin' of you" digital Senti
can be found at her on-line store

Here's a sketch (you'll note that I did take a few artistic liberties
and strayed from the sketch a wee bit)

So my friends, I hope you'll go check out the Challenge Blog
and join us for the fun!

Have a great day and Scrap Happy peeps!!!
