MWT-Birthday Challenge 9.15.10

Hello there everyone! Starting to look and feel like fall out here in Germany lately! Loving the colors of the leaves and this cooler weather is just awesome! I have finally decided this past week to open my own business, selling my homemade cards online for now, thru facebook and have actually had my first order!! The cards below came from that first order. I have to say, I am pretty proud of how they turned out :) Here is the link to Paper Crafts by Turtle.

Below are 2 of the 4 cards I have made for my first customer.
1 masculine birthday:

And one feminine birthday :)

I hope you all enjoy, I know I have had one very busy month! I have just officially made my 300th card for the month!! Definitely wish every month was this productive!

Take care and wish you all the best weekend out there :)

Here are my birthday cards for the Stamps R Us childrens birthday challenge! I just love this little robot because its something I would make for my son on his birthday. Hes at the age now where he likes to play with robots and soldiers and other such toys :) and even tho im scared to death of clowns, this one is sure to make someones little one happy on their birthday!

The Stamps R Us challenge can be found here. I encourage everyone to try this one....its a very fun, simple, easy challenge! Time to get creative!!!!

Hope you all enjoyed and Ill see ya later for the next challenge!

OWH challenge #33 and "wondering monday"

Hello everyone!

Man, September sure is flying by!!! Guess its good to be this busy....definitely like all these challenges too :) I think Ive made more cards this month, than the past 6 months combined :) I think it should be like this year round!!

Anyway, here is my sketch for challenge #33. The original sketch can be found here.

For the wondering Monday thing, I looked up all the challenges for September, and only found 1 I missed that I really wanted to participate in, and that is the Enjoy the VA Sunshine challenge. Below is my take on the holiday card!

Its a little late here in Germany right now, going on midnight, but just wanted to put in my two cents lol :)

Hope you all enjoy my cards and have a great rest of your week!!!
Til next time,

MWT-Fall Thank You Challenge

Hello there again everyone!

Def been a busy month here for me, Im so excited to be so busy tho....So far this month, Ive gotten 215 cards made for OWH!!! My party made 180 and Ive been busy with everyone else's challenges and whatnots with the rest!! I think we should have challenges like this ALLLLL the time :)

Anyhoo, here is my fall thank you card for the week:

I made these cards initially for the week #30 sketch, but didnt quite have a stamp that fit the card...luckily today, I found my acrylics and saw a "thank you" stamp that fit perfectly and looky what I got out of it :) Im pretty excited about how they all turned out too :) the 2 sheets of fall leaf paper I used for the bases made 8 cards total....and they are cards I would like to say, I made for Small Town Girl's blog challenge! If you havent yet, I would def recommend you visiting her blog :)

Thanks so much for visiting! See you in a couple days for the NEW sketch challenge!

OWH sketch #34 & Family Challenge

Hello there everyone! Another great challenge given to us this week, but first, I would like to show you my pics for the Family Challenge. My computer wouldnt let me open the coloring pages file, but thankfully, OWH is an awesome organization and I was able to get help from fellow cardmakers- Joan J and Yolanda. I was able to print off a couple sets of coloring sheets for my 2 1/2 year old Aidan to color! His favorite things are coloring and puppies, so these Ciara sheets were perfect!! So thank you ladies! You made our weekend!!!

Here is Aidan coloring:

And some of his results (not too bad for a 2 year old!):

And, for the other half of the family challenge, here is my Ciara card:

The Ciara card also makes up for the yellow thank you theme that was needed to make up the Sketch #34 challenge!

Well, Im off of here for now to get some more of these challenges done :) there are some great blog candy opportunities out there, and Ive gotta put my name in for them too! :) Thanks so much for visiting and see you all real soon!

OWH Sketch #32 & Cake Chef Digi :)

Hello everyone!

Just finally got my sketch #32 done, ready to see what #33 looks like here in a minute....def been a busy week here for me! Sure hope Miss Dixie is ready for the package I am sending her later this week!!

Here is the sketch for this past week:

And here are my takes on it(left and right cards):

The chef cake was a free digi from Bits of Cheer blog and available FREE! for use on Operation Write Home cards. This month marks the birthday of Operation Write Home and I think this digi stamp is perfect to use in celebration!

I also made some "hero" cards for 3 lucky daddys out there who love their little girls and want them to know they'll be home soon, thanks to Miss Yolanda at Imagine. Make. Share for making such an adorable digi! These cards also qualify me, I hope, for a super cute truck digi that I just cant wait to try out!

Happy Birthday Operation Write Home!!!


MWT 9.1.10

Hello everyone!

Im doing things a little backwards this week since I got a little behind on my blogging. I had my bday bash for OWH on Friday. I got 75 cards officially made with just 1 guest showing up! All the others had family issues come up and couldnt make it, but we did good just the same! If youd like to see my blog about it, click here.

Halloween is my most favorite holiday! Id rather celebrate that than my own birthday I like it so much! :) I think my creative juices were a little off this week due to all the cards I had to put together on Friday, but Im hoping they turned out ok!

Heres my take on the halloween cards this week. Hope you all enjoy!

Take care and happy crafting!!

My OWH Bday Bash :)

Hello there everyone! Sorry in advance for this being an extra long post, but I was so excited to have my OWH Bday Bash today, I just couldnt wait to post the results! If you havent yet heard about the Bday Bash, you can click here to get more info.

My party was initially planned for tomorrow, but one of my friends made plans and needed the party moved up, so we did it today. Unfortunately, she had a family emergency earlier this week, as did 3 other guests, so only 1 of my friends could make it today anyway :/ There will be other cardmaking parties in the future tho, so no worries, right?!

Here is a pic of all the fun foods my wonderful husband and I made (mini burgers and chips n dip) :

Here is a pic of one of the prizes I put together for each of my guests (several sheets of 12X12 scrapbook paper, 1 box of adhesives, some stickers, ribbon, rubber stamps and chipboard along with some other goodies):

And finally, here is a pic of my only guest and my son who thought he was being a good helper (not too bad for a 2 1/2 year old!) :

And lastly, here are the kits I put together for all my guests (180 cards total):
made 80 cards
made 20 cards
made 20 cards
made 20 cards
made 20 cards
made 20 cards

I hope you all enjoyed this post as much as I did putting it together! Its been a busy week here making sure everything was put together and done for my guests, so now I have to re-check the OWH Stars & Stamps Blog to get making my sketch #32 and the midweek throwdown! I hear there are some goodies to win :)

Take care and I hope my party inspired some of you out there to put together your own and get crafting!!
