It's been a while since I've been able to participate in a challenge so I was pleased to be able to do this Runway Inspired Challenge .The colors are among my favs so it was easy to get inspired. Happy New Year!

So I happened upon these challenges today on Runway Inspired Challenge to make a baby card inspired by these adorable fashionable babies! Had fun using the patterns and colors of the outfits. Must admit that using black and white for a baby card was a stretch for me. Had to add some bright primary colors so it seemed a bit more babyish.

 Congrats Cristina from RIC on your new baby boy!


So this is the picture to be interpreted into a card from Runway Inspired Challenges for one of their members, Sarah, who just had a baby girl (congrats!).
I'm totally loving the Runway Inspired Challenges! Making cards based on a piece of fashion is so much fun! Who knew, right?!

Blog Hop PTI

Decided at the last minute to make something for the blog hop once I got home from work. I love the medallions
because they need zero embellishments due to their detailed design!

Mix and Match Challenges

I combined a Make it Monday and Runway Inspired Challenge to yield the results. It was neat because the RIC helped me get a color scheme and the MIM provided the layout. Love how these challenges help stretch my creative brain!

Luckily one of the church leaders came by and we were able to get a picture of all of us. It was a great day of stamping, friendship, and of course eating! I'm still full from all the wonderful treats. :)


Yay!! How cute did those bracelets turn out. Must admit I did not make one but I took the picture! ;)

Luanne's limited supply

Luanne's take on the limited supply. So pretty as usual!

Limited Supply

Kelly designed the card for this challenge. Love it!

Amanda's mini book

Amanda worked hard and came up with this beauty for her daughter!!! Love it!

Bonnie's love

Well our hostess with the mostest, Bonnie, made these cute snacks for us today. Waters were on the table when we came and then the M&Ms with awesome poem were given to us after lunch! Too sweet!

Mini Books

So after watching a few of the different mini books quite a few of us decided to do the envelope inspired book. Bonnie had a huge box of envelopes that her church, Circle Fellowship of Lexington, is not using. Well that worked out great. We had a great time messing around and doing different things!!

Our take on Ribbon Badge

I cut the flowers in order to do Ashley's tutorial on using satin ribbon. After we watched the video we decided to combine a few of the techniques. Everyone does something different!!

Kelly and PJ

Stampafaire in Lexington! College roomies and besties for life!!!!


Make and take early in the morning!!!!

Mojo Monday 248

Had a bit of time to play today. Used some of the fun dies from my friend, Luanne. Also stamped on the pattern paper which was a Make-it-Monday technique from PTI.

Using the new Reason to Smile stamp set from Stampin' Up! to make a Sympathy card. That's got to be an oxymoron. Also trying out my Blogger app to see how it looks when you post and take the picture from your phone. Hope it works!

Make it Monday #71

Soooo I tried two card challenges in one day.  It's a record for sure! Had fun with the masking technique for Make It Monday #71 challenge by Betsy Veldman.  Placement was tricky with trying to get the stars to show. Don't know if you can see the extra sparkle in there, but had fun playing around with this card.  Should have moved everything down a bit, but will perhaps try again with the other images in the Friendship Jar Summer Images!

Runway Inspired Challenge #14

Happened upon this cool card challenge blog today, Runway Inspired Challenge and was thoroughly inspired!  The object of inspiration this week was a fab shoe in the colors of deep rose, light rose, and a lovely chartreuse.  Had fun playing along.  TFL!

Another take on Mojo Mondays #245 using scraps from my abundant pile!!
Finally getting myself together to enter different crafting competitions.  My good friend Luanne always enters and has won several times.  I'm going to try to my luck!  Above is my interpretation of Mojo Monday Sketch #245.  Fun way to make a Male themed card which I always struggle with.  Paper is PTI Men of Life, with SU! River Rock and Real Red, on Basic White Cardstaock.  Ink is Real Red, Bashful Blue and Daffodil Delight and Early Espresso.  TFL!
