Happy Monday to you all!!!

First of all, did all of you watch the season premiere of "The Walking Dead" last night? If you haven't, you should go check it out!! Very suspensful!!! I have been waiting months to see the new episodes. The only problem with this show is that the shows are so quick!!! :P Anyway, on to other things... The past few weeks I've been pretty busy making baby shower invites for my best friend. I'm so happy she let me make them for her!!! They came out pretty cute considering this being the first time I've made a large quantity of cards at once. I made 45 of them! :) My friends husband is a fireman and since the baby is a boy, she wanted a fireman and dog and I was able to find the PERFECT stamp for her! It's a Simply Betty stamp. It looks like it was made for her. It had everything she wanted in it! The only thing was that I had a hard time deciding on colors since he's a fireman. I would have liked to do some baby blue in the card but there was nothing in the stamp that I could make that color. I decided on it being vintage instead. She really liked them, so that's good! Here is one of them....
I'm participating in the color challenge at Splendid Stamping's blog.
And here is my card!! :)
I think it turned out really cute!!! I'm also entering it into the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge.

Lawnscaping Challenge....

Hello Everybody- Today I'm participating in the Lawnscaping's Sketch Challenge # 41.
This was a really fun and quick card I made. I tried to make something similar to the sketch but not identical. Hopefully it still works for this challenge.
Have a great day!

I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving....

Please scroll down to see my latest post. I had a blog fart and reposted an old one!! hee hee! Hi everyone, I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving!!!  I know I did, well except for the cold I got on Sunday night!  But anyway, here are a few more of my cards that I've made lately.  I'm trying to get serious about making and sending out Christmas cards this year so here's the two I've made so far and a few others I made previously.

On this card I used Paper Smooches stamps and glitter paper.

This is an Elzybell's stamp which coordinated perfectly with these brads and ribbon!

And this last one is a super sweet Tiddly Inks digi image! It's so fun trying different coloring mediums to see what texture you can give to an image.

Do you ever get the feeling....

Do you ever get the feeling that you've seen your newly created card somewhere before? You look at sooooo many sketches and cards that others have made and wonder if you've accidentally copied someone.... Was it an actual card or just a sketch that I've seen somewhere??? So you look around at your favorite blogs to make sure and you can't find it! You think to yourself, "Should I post it or not?" Well, that's what has happened to me this week. I made the first card below for Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge and wondered if I had seen it somewhere. Then I looked all over the Paper Smooches Site and couldn't find anything! So this is my apology if I have, by accident, copied your card! Kinda funny, he he
