sweet pea guest design team & HUGE NEWS!!!

I won last week at sweet pea stampers
How exciting it is to love a stamp company so much and win at the challenges
feels real good

Then I got an email from Pascale from Sweet Pea Stampers ASKING ME TO JOIN THE DESIGN TEAM!!! COULD THIS BE REAL??? I AM BEYOND EXCITED, COMPLIMENTED, FREAKED OUT AND JUST HAPPY :) I can not believe that someone likes my crafts enough to be put on a design team and that it is the SPS DT!!! SO UNBELIEVEABLE!!!

To celebrate I will be posting a candy for my followers later today or tomorrow so stayed tuned :)

I hope my love for sweet peas is infectious, that you girls give this weeks challenge a try, and being "Anything Goes" you can craft to your hearts content!!!
Please join us I'd LOVE to see what you come up with :)

So when I was thinkin 'bout anything goes, to me that meant "any craft" so I thought I'd construct a box, with a small assortment of some of my favorite sweet peas.

The box was made so the center fit a 4x4 card (took me 3 tries to figure it I loosely based it on this but I used my own measurements. I cut the bottom at 7", then scored around the edges at 1&1/2", cut slits up the four sides, folded it all to make the bottom. The top was cut at 5&1/4, scored at 2/3, folded and cut the slits the same, edge punch the sides & glue together. I affixed the ribbon & the butterflies & cut out 4x4 cards from cardstock & decorated them with the fantabulous sweet pea images!

I love how it turned out...hope you do too...can't wait to see yours!!!

Kenny K's Krafty Girlz

challenge for today is a sketch

so I was done my card & asked my hubby what he thought of it
he of course said it was great
I then showed him the sketch & at first he didn't understand
but as I said the "net" is the top square & the "goals" is the bottom
the white rectangle is this, the brown is that, the hockey guy is that
he says & I quote
"holy cow that's imaginative"
"that's right babe" I replied..."I got game"

apparently we are nerds :)

anyways check out the sketch here and this is my card
I actually broke out my sewing machine...she hasn't seen the light of day in a loooong time :)

hope you like it
and thanks for comin by!!!

this week at sweet pea stampers

is a challenge made for me :)
everyone who knows me knows I only wear black & I love anything B&W, so this week at sweet pea stampers they asked for B&W & one other color
I chose a color I would not normally :)
but I do like how this card turned out!

I started this particular card & just knew that I had to reverse the image I wanted to use, to best suit my layout.
I did this by stamping the image on transparency on the slippery side and then laying it wet side down on my paper. The image you get is not totally crisp, so I stamped with stazon on another transparency, flipped it once it was dry. I then colored my "not so crisp" image and layered my crisp "stazon" image overtop it. I really think she needed to be facing the other way...I did it...and I love it!

here are some pics of the making & the final project
thanks for comin by

this is the inside...hope you found this a new & fun technique
give it a go :) and then come back & leave me a link
I'd love that!!!
see ya soon

p.s. pop on over to Rach's website for an awesome candy!!!

sweet pea recipe

the challenge this week over at sweet pea stampers is a recipe

No pattern paper
1 butterfly
2 images
3 different embellishments

wow that's a challenging one fer sure

last nite we had our families over for Zack's 7th bday
(that's right my baby is 7!!!)
I was talkin with one of my neices and she was saying her friends were buggin her about the fact that she tans so dark and that with her sky blue eyes & blonde hair she looks weird and they were makin rude remarks...number one people are so I will never understand jealousy and how makin someone else feel bad makes you feel better...I will never get that!!! and it makes me so flippin angry :( so I made this card thinkin 'bout our conversation and 'bout how my neice hides behind everything not to be hurt...stand tall my girl are perfectly beautiful just the way you are!!!

I used earthy papers, that beautiful butterfly popped up and my 3 embellies are gold dots, pearls & chipboard, give this challenge a try!

thanks for comin by

sweet pea & huge news

I am at the lake so I am schedualing this post for early monday am...hope it works lol!!!
I was picked last week & won a stamp at sweet pea stampers
but most importantly I also won the chance to be a guest on the design team :)
can you tell I am excited!!!
and sweet pea stampers as you can also tell are my new favorite stamps :)
how could they not be :)))
anyways so this week the challenge is celebrating the 4rth of July & Independence Day with the colors red, white & blue :)
although I was tempted to make my card red & white to celebrate Canada Day
I quicky came to my "guest design team" senses and off I went to construct this card.
I emailed it to Pascale with plenty of time attaching a plea for her to tell me if it was not good and I would redo it...she said it was without any more jibberish here is my card...hope you like it.

I sent this card off to a "close online" friend in the USA :)
hope she gets it in time :)

thank you SO much for comin by
and thank you to SPS for giving me this chance :)
