A Link To Melanie, A Challenge and A RAK!!

First of all.....................Hip, Hop, Hooooooooray to Melanie Muenchinger for her achievement of being in the Top 100 Stamping Sites!!! An honor well-deserved and very much earned!!!! Make sure to check out Mel's Achievement and Blog Candy Give-away!!! She's got such a fantastic blog with such detailed tutorials and shares her creativity and talent with all!! And her stamp sets are THE cuteste EVER with a brand new set being released in just a few days!!!!

Okay.........now this RAK from a Flybaby Friend on SCS..........isn't this the cutest??!! I just had such a big smile when I saw him!!! A lepruchaun made out of various punchies!!! And those googlie eyes!! And, being that I married into a HUGE and very Irish family.........it's perfect!!! I can't wait to show my in-law's!!! I know they'll absolutely LOVE it!!! Thanks Mary!!!

Now today's Color Challenge card.........it's funny........I made it at 2 a.m. and then tried to get a little sleep before a dr. appt today. When I finished it, in the wee morning hours, I wasn't too thrilled. I don't know.........as my dd said (trust teenagers to be honest!!! LOL), "It's not bad mom, but it's not your best work." Oh........very true my daughter!!! LOL

I used the colors, Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi, and So Saffron with some Whisper White. I really love this combo.......just need to get a little more creative!! Maybe after some sleep!!! I really love paper piercing........can you tell??? And layering the flowers.......I guess I'm ready for Spring flowers and colors even though I'm one who does love Winter!! I used the Merci set, but I definitely want to use it again so it really pops out a little more!!

Okay..........it's Tuesday, I didn't post a Monday challenge.........I think I'll just skip this week and post one next Monday when my thinking's a bit clearer and I get the hang of a couple of new tools and have some good ideas!!!! :)


  1. Your color challenge card is gorgeous! I love the primas and the metal title plate, very neat! What a super cute Patty' Day card too! People send you these great cards cuz you're such a sweetie! Always leaving such kind comments and being a fabulous blogging/stamping buddy! I just wanna hug ya, hehe! TFS today and I hope you got some rest and that your Dr. appt went well!

  2. Hope everything went well at the doctors!

    And I just have to stop you about your card, but are you kidding me? I think it's beautiful! The dp, the way you framed your sentiment and the spring theme...all too cute!

  3. Hope your DRs appointment went well!! I think your card is super cute!! Love the sentiment and the paper!! It was 73 on Sunday, today it snowed and iced. Where are you Spring????

  4. It is very nice--you are too hard on yourself. What a pretty flower!

  5. How cute to get a St Patrick's Day card like that! Clever friend. And I do like your colour challenge card as well.

    Hope the Dr's apt was alright and that you are feeling 'top of the tree' (Isn't that an Irish phrase? Lol!)

    Here's an old Irish prayer I thought you might like:

    An Irish Prayer
    May God give you...
    For every storm, a rainbow,
    For every tear, a smile,
    For every care, a promise,
    And a blessing in each trial.
    For every problem life sends,
    A faithful friend to share,
    For every sigh, a sweet song,
    And an answer for each prayer.

  6. What a shame that your scrappin' gear is packed away! I was imagining you at Scrapchat. Maybe you can play next time they have a Cybercrop.

    Glad you can still stamp!!

  7. Thanks for your nice comment abotu my little bags, Lee! I edited the post just fro you so you can see what materials I used :-)

    Hope you're doing well there.


Your comments truly warm my heart! Thank you so much for making my day!
