Scrapbookaholic by Abby Challenge #2

Welcome to another Scrapbookaholic by Abby challenge! These two weeks we will be concentrating on anything spring. I've created a sweet little card using a digistamp from Bugaboo Stamps and Pink by Design stamp:

Here's a closer look at the stamp and sentiment:

The digistamp is from the summer peek collection and it's called Flowerpot.  The Pink by Design stamp is the stamp of the month Grow, I used a sentiment and the little flowers from that collection.   I am quickly liking to use image stamps and I'm loving to use water color markers! All I have are tombows but I hope to graduate to copics in the future :)  hehehe!  I also used  and Creative Memories' chalking ink and a little bling on the corners.  Thanks for visiting and don't forget to go to Abby's page to enter your project.  The prize is this week is being sponsored by Abby herself and it's a beautiful 6x6 SEI paper stack and SEI ribbon assortment.  You don't want to miss an opportunity to win!  Thanks for stopping by and God bless!

Another Big Announcement!!!!

The last few weeks I have been just full of announcements!!! Today I guess is just another day for me :) !  I am so happy to announce that I will be joining the Joy's Life Design Team!! (yes!!! another design team!!) 

I met Joy during her birthday blog hop when I showed interest in participating.  When I saw that she had a design team call, I decided to go for it and I was lucky enough to get chosen.  I have to say that one of the my goals when I first started blogging was to be on a design team, and I have been fortunate enough to have been chosen for three! It will be a lot of work, but I know for sure a lot of fun and along the way, I get to make new friends!! :)

Joy is extremely friendly and funny and not to mention that her stamps are very much versatile and fun to work with!  Click here to check them out!!  I hope that you will also join us in the fun and on Design Team Thursdays as well.  Lots of inspiration awaits for you!! Hope you all have a wonderful day and God Bless!

Some Great News and a Beautiful Card From My Friend Kimi

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a fantabulous weekend! We just got back from Daytona after a great cheeleading competition. We had all of our teams take home a prize and we couldn't be so proud of them! Even the parent team, which I'm a part of did well!! We really had the crowd going and amazed at the things that parents can do in a cheering team.  I can tell you that I have a whole new level of respect for what my girls do as cheerleaders!  Once I get a hold of a video I will be sure to post it so you can get a good laugh! :)

When I got home, I was surprised with a card from a good friend.  Kimi from Lovebug Creations sent me this beautiful card and it was too cute not to share.  It totally made my day!  She's so sweet and knew I was going through a very stressful and hard time this week.  Thank you Kimi for your friendship and of course the beautiful card!

Well... on to the good news. Stephanie from Always Crafting and Erika from Cricut Love will be heading the Whimsical Wednesday challenges and they have put a group of designers together to help out. I'm so happy to announce that I will be a part of that design team and working with so many talented ladies! You can go over to Always Crafting and check out the rest of the design team. The challenges will take place every wednesday.  We will also be having a blog hop for the grand opening of the new Whimsical Wednesday blog on April 1st. All the design team members will be featuring a project. Be sure to check us out! Happy crafting and God bless!

Scrapbookaholic by Abby Challenge #1

This is such an exciting day for me! Today is my first posting as a design team member for Abby.   For this challenge we picked from a list of March holidays which you can find by clicking here.  Today so happens to be learning about butterflies day, so I decided to do a card with a butterfly on it. 

Did you know that there are about 28,000 different species of butterflies worldwide and that they cannot fly if their body temperature is less than 86 degrees?  Butterflies can only see red, green, and yellow colors.  I don't think that this would work very well for a crafter, but it might make for fun challenge one day!  I hope you enjoyed my little buttefly!

The deadline for the challenge is Saturday March 26th at 12:00pm PST .

Have a great day and God bless!

My First Design Team Participation!

Yep... I made it into Scrapbookaholic Abby's Design Team!!! I'm so excited about this!! This is my first ever design team and after just a few short months of participating in the blogging world, I didn't think that it would happen for me this fast.  Honestly, when I first started this blogging journey, one of my goals (besides meeting new friends and having fun) was to participate in a design team and to eventually be published.  I can now scratch one of those off my list! 

You can check out the rest of the design team's blogs by clicking on their name below.  Abby will be picking one comment from each blog for a prize, so don't forget to leave some love for each of them!

I'm honored to be working along with a wonderful group of talented ladies and I can't wait to see the type of challenges that we will create for you to play along.  There will be great prizes and we'll have lots of fun too!   I hope you will come and visit often!!  God bless!
