Love is in the air!

Good day everyone! Today we have some wonderful news over at Fab'n'Funky! We have reached 1000 followers, and we want to say Thank you.

But..... There is more!!!! If you come over to our challenge blog you have a chance to win a wonderful prize too!

So what are you waiting for? Head on over and put your name into the draw!!!!
(But don't forget to take a look at my card for this week first!!! LOL)

Now onto my creation for this week!

This week our lovely Ginny has chosen the theme of  "Love is a splendid thing" and our wonderful sponsor for this week is Floppy Latte.

Here is what I came up with.

I used an image from Kenny K with my sentiment from Floppy Latte! I thought this cheeky looking sentiment well with the image. I tride a new technique for me this week as well. I made a mask of my image and then stamped the background to creat a wall. I really like this effect. I think now I need to get me some more background stamps! LOL

Crazy Weather once again!!!!

Good morning everyone! Did you have some crazy weather last week? We sure did!!  On Thursday the weather man was announcing one very nasty and brutal ice storm, therefore all our school buses were canceled. But Alas nothing came of the storm...................Until late that evening! After listening to the ice/rain and the very strong wind hit our windows all night, this is what we woke up to!

My windows are not normally frosted! LOL!

Outside was rather pretty but hectic. Even though the school buses were cancelled for a second day, I still had to be present at school.
Jeff went out to clean off the van and had to literally CHISEL off the ice! The ice was at least 1/2 an inch thick!

Our ice covered trees.

My mummified van.

Our frozen porch lamp.

But with all this ice, it gave me a little more time to stay indoors and play with some stamps from our new Sponsor over at Fab'n'Funky.

This week it is my turn to host the Challenge, and I have chosen the popular 1,2,3, Challenge.
That's right! 1 image, 2 Designer Papers and 3 Embellies.

Here is what I came up with:
As you can see, I have one image "Lili with Berries" from Inky Impressions, Two DP's (Basic Grey "Lemonade") and my three embellies are the little cherries on the side.

Here is a close up of the image. Coloured with my Copics. 

I would love to hear what you think, and how your week was!

Please don't forget to visit us at Fab'n'Funky. Come see what my team mates have made for you, and leave us link to your wonderful creations for a chance to win some wonderful prizes!

Have a great day!

April showers..............bring us snow?

Good morning everyone! It's Wednesday and that means a brand new Challenge over at Fab'n'Funky. This weeks challenge is April Showers. I know normally the saying goes "April Showers bring May flowers" but for some reason our Spring season has turned to winter! We are now into day three of blistery weather with high winds, snow and cold temperatures!

But I digress.... Back to our challenge of the week. Here is my card for this week.

I tried a new technique on the umbrella and boots. I tried to make some raindrops. Some of them turned out not too bad, but I think I need some practice.

I am really trying to use up some of my flat flowers, I have to bucket full of them!

Thank you for stopping by again this week, I hope to see you over at Fab'n'Funky with your creation!
Have a great week!
