Moxie Fab World: Tuesday Trigger

Isn't this picture great!  I love it:)  I see calm, clean and relaxing.  Lately my life has been anything but.  We adopted a new puppy 2 weeks ago and I have learned that puppies are just as much work as kids!  So between the puppy and trying to get my kids ready to start school again in a week and my daughters Cheer leading camp I have been busy!   Here is my take on this fabulous Tuesday Trigger.

All of the supplies are from PTI with the exception of the pearls and ink.

PaperSmooches July Sparks Challenge!

Here is my entry for the PaperSmooches July Sparks Challenge.  I used the adorable cow from "Chubby Chums" and a pine image from "Hang ups" to create the look of hay.  I chose the White, Pink, Sunshine and Chocolate color combo and I also used one of the sketches for July.

Good Morning!  Today I have a card to share that I made for the My Minds Eye card Challenge.  It is sweet and simple birthday card,  The paper is from the Stella and Rose Hattie collection and the star is from a MME calender kit from a few years back.

I hope you are all having a great weekend!

My Altered birdcage

I recently purchased a birdcage home decor item on clearance at Michaels with the intention of decorating the inside and adding a photo.  I have been working on it for a few weeks now and when The Moxie Fab World announced the next challenge as being Fantanical about Botanical I realized this would be the perfect project for me to enter.  So I finished it up for the most part all it still needs is some text which I will add at a later date.
Here is the birdcage sitting on my shelf, I think it might need some ribbon and floral embellishment around the hook at the top, What do you think?
Here is a close up of the inside.
Isn't the fabric rose pretty?  I made that all by myself.  You can't see in the photo but I sprayed it with glimmer mist and it is so pretty in person.  I was playing around in photo shop and decided that I loved the worn paper photo effect.  My husband and I have been married for 15 years and this is one of the few pictures we have of just the two of us that we took this year on Easter.

Thanks for stopping by, I would love to hear what you think or if you have any suggestions on what I could add to it.  If you want to participate in the challenge click on the link above.

Beautiful Borders Challenge

Good Morning!  My tag for today is for the Moxie Fab World: Beautiful Borders challenge and I also thought I would link it up with the Papersmooches guest DT search for this month. 
I used a few Martha Stewart border punches that I have for the fence and flowers.  I cut some green cardstock to look like grass.  The cute house and sentiment are from Papersmooches.

So this weekend was a big one for my family because we adopted a new little puppy (my first time owning a dog).  He is the cutest little thing, we think he is between 6 & 8 weeks old.  I will post a pic a little later on.

PTI: Make it Monday

Today's card was made for the PTI: Make it Monday technique for the week, which is Multi color stamping using Ink Refills.  So I originally was going to use the sunflower image from last years anniversary set and that did not work so well with the ink colors I had picked and the foam I was using.  The second  image I chose worked really well except I was putting the blue ink on the foam and it was clogged and I pushed to hard and the ink ended up all over my work surface and me!  So here is my card for this week, I hope you enjoy:)

Unity Challenge: Summer!

This month the theme is Summer!  I am really trying hard not to shop right now.  With three kids and school uniforms to buy as well as school supplies for next month my craft supplies are needing to take a back seat.  So I tried to find a stamp that I already own with a summery feel.  I gotta say it is a fun challenge to use what you already have:)  so here is my card, I really hope this qualifies as a summer card and if not I like it anyway and had fun making it.
If you want to play along with this months challenge you have until the 15th so click here to check it out!

Have a great holiday weekend!
