Is it Friday yet?

Seems like I can't seem to keep my head above water lately. Life is just busy busy busy. I could really use some major rest and relaxation, but I guess I'll have to settle for new carpet! Our new carpet is finally getting installed today. Tom and I tore out all of our old carpet about a week or so ago and I can't wait to have nice soft cushioned carpet under my feet again instead of dirty, splinter filled wood.

I posted these cards on the DRS Designs blog yesterday but I thought I would post them here in case any of you missed them. I made these last week during the Stampin Out Alzheimers challenges. DRS Designs has a ton of really great graduation images and sentiments, you should really check them out!
All three of my cards use the same 2 graduation stamps from DRS. I wanted to show you that even with limited supplies you can still create a multitude of unique cards. I also purposely didn't use any designer paper. DRS has a ton of fabulous background stamps (including this graduation background) that make creating your own designer paper a breeze!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are all having a great week!

Just for fun!

Today I thought I would share one of those "just for fun" cards. This is another one of the cards that I made for the Paper Pretties Cutie Pie contest last month. I am just so in love with this Cuddle Me Sophia!

Hope you are all having a fabulous week! Thanks for stopping by!

Shimmerz Darez!

This is my second post of the day. Please scroll down for my JB and TT challenge.

This is a brand new weekly feature on the Shimmerz blog: Shimmerz Darez.

Every Tuesday, a different member of the Shimmerz Design Team will challenge you to create something wonderful using Shimmerz, Blingz, or Spritz. If you'd like to participate and create something with us, great! Just leave your name & URL of the specific post or gallery picture on the Shimmerz blog Darez post with Mr. Linky. The following Monday afternoon, Shimmerz will have a random drawing for the winner of a prize pack of goodies from Shimmering Products. How does that sound? We hope you'll join us whenever you can!

For anyone participating, here is a blinkie you can grab for your blog to let everyone know that you're a Dare Diva! :) (Doesn't Jeni do a fabulous job with these?)

The very first dare is to use Shimmerz, Blingz and/or Spritz on a picture frame.

For my project I made a magnetic picture frame. The magnets have CS and then Prima flowers painted with Hi Ho Silver Blingz. I added some gems for the flower centers. I took pictures of the frame with different photos on it. The flower stamp is from DRS Designs.

Here is a side view:

Jacksonbelle Tuesday!

It is time for another great Jacksonbelle Embellishments blog challenge. This week our challenge is a sketch. If you decide to play along please use keyword JBE056 when you upload to SCS or PCP.

Here is the sketch:As seems to be my bad habit lately, I also incorporated this week's Twinkling Tuesday challenge in on this card. This week's TT challenge is an inspiration challenge given to us by Jameson, the 8 year old son of TT design team member Rebecca. The inspiration challenge came from the book Suki's Kimono:
I chose to use this as a color challenge inspiration...Orange and blue.

Here is my card:
My card uses Pink Paislee designer paper from Jacksonbelle. Isn't it just delish! The cardstock is SU and the sentiment stamp comes from Little Paper Shop. The self adhesive pearls are Kaiser.

Jacksonbelle is having an awesome sale on Shimmerz and Blingz paint this week...30% off! What a great time to stock up! She also just added Spritz to her store (sorry this is not included in the sale).

DRS Blog Challenge Monday!

Welcome to the 22nd DRS Designs Blog Challenge!! This week's challenge is to make Get Well cards. If you upload to SCS or PCP please use keyword DRSC22. You do not need to use DRS stamps but we would love it if you did. DRS Designs has a great selection of get well images.

Here is my card. It is really hard to tell from the picture but the large pink cardstock panel is sprayed with Shimmerz Baby's Breath Spritz. It looks really shimmery in real life.

Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to check in tomorrow for the Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge, the Twinkling Tuesday challenge AND....the all new Tuesday Shimmerz Dare Challenge! You won't want to miss out on these!

Hope you all have a great day!
