Heat Wave!

This is my card for this week's challenge at Dragonfly Journey's.  The challenge is anything beachy!  I had this image from Dearie Dolls!   Isn't he cute?  I thought with the crab pinch it was definitely a Heat Wave!  Thanks Mary Ellen for your sweet images!

Today I was needing a sympathy card and remembered I had pinned a card I loved from Pinterest a few weeks back.  This is my version...very, very similar to Karen's.  I knew I had the stamp set and that it would come together very quickly.  Thanks, Karen, for the wonderful idea and beautiful card!

I'd Rather Be Dancing!

What cowgirl wouldn't want to be dancing!

I created this card for Dragonfly Journey's Cowgirl Challenge!  I used a modified version of an old Mojo Monday Sketch #125.  I thought it was perfect as it reminded me of a saddle and took me back to my horse riding days with my sister, Nancy!

What a fun challenge!  Thanks, Jeannie!

It's Your Day!

I made this card for Dragonfly Journey's  Daisy Challenge.  Check out Jeannie's challenge over at Dragonfly Journey's. It's fun and easy to play along.   I love daisies so the hardest part was trying to decide which image I wanted to use!  As you can see I ended up with one of Mary Ellen's images.  I adore her images and her talent to share her images with all of us.  

I also decided to use the Mojo Monday sketch for this week and will play along with them too!
A fun sketch to use!

Have a Happy Mother's Day Week!
You're My Hero

Two of my grandson's have birthdays in May.  
The youngest loves fire trucks so right away I knew which image 
I wanted to use for his birthday card! 
This is definitely an oldie but goodie!!!!!  
You can find this image at Bugaboo Stamps.  

I decided to use my molding pad and give the fire truck 
some dimension along with his hat.  
Then I decided the ribbon on the sketch needed to be the fire hose.  
I was hoping I had something in my stash that would work 
and sure enough this twill tape was the perfect addition.  
Then I needed an fire hose nozzle 
so I google images for fire hose nozzle and 
came up with this nozzle, printed it off and cut it out!  Wha la!!!! 
 It's so fun when things come together the way you think them up in your head!

Anyway, my grandson is only three and this card will probably be destroyed in two minutes 
but I know he will like it while it lasts!

This is the inside of his birthday card!
