Rain = Crafty Time!

Good morning!  It's chilly and wet here in Ohio again.  I miss the sunshine, lol!  So we've been inside a lot this week again so it called for a little crafty time.  I made this card using TSB's Dramatic Tree image.  Isn't it pretty?

I am entering this card in a few challenges:
Paper Sundaes - birthday

Birthday Basket

Good evening!  I've been meaning to get this posted for the past two days, but time has slipped away from me!  It has been beautiful and warm and sunny here, and the 2 monkeys and I have been enjoying as much of it as possible (especially since I now have a fenced in yard to contain said monkeys!)

This week The Stamping Boutique is sponsoring One Stitch At A Time Challenges - and the challenge is Fancy Folds.  I hope this counts and some fancy folding!  I found this template on the Stamp TV website.  I love it and it's so cute!  I will be posting some pics at a later date of some more I made for centerpieces for my niece's birthday party coming up.  I'm still working on them though.

Let's Hop with TSB!

It's time for a May Day hop with The Stamping Boutique!

You should have arrived here from Sara's blog.  If not, please head back to TSB's main page to start at the beginning.
I am so thankufor the month of May!  I am not a winter person, and I love all the flowers and the trees that are blooming.  This image from The Stamping Boutique is a perfect piece of spring!

Each of us used this image for our hop cards, and this is what I came up with:

From here, please head over to Michelle's blog, and if you get lost, the hop list is below.  Happy hopping!

TSB is Sponsoring...

Good morning!  It's so rainy here today but at least everything is green, right?

The Stamping Boutique is sponsoring the Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge this week if you have a chance to play along you might win some great freebies from TSB!

Challenge is white &; one, so white card and one other color.  Also, you were to use something neglected from your stash - I used the aqua ribbon.

I am entering this into the Sketch and Stash Challenge this week also and you could pick any of their sketches to use, so I chose sketch #11.
