"A New Challenge Blog"

So guess what!! I am so excited about this! My very close friend over at Graphicat Creations has started making digis!!!! I have to say I am so very excited about this! She is such a talented lady!! She has started a new blog for her digis and also a challenge every month!! SWEET I say!! This month is a sketch!!! Go to Graphicat Designs to join us!!
Funny story!! When I met Cheri just about 4 years ago I asked her "Do you scrapbook" She said "Yes". She also said that she didn't have much stuff either!! LOL She just had some plastic containers with paper and stuff. It was great a new friendship began!!! So we started to scrapbook together. Well a year or so after that we discovered stamping!! OMG so much fun and if I knew what kind of monster would emerge!! LOL I guess I would not have changed a thing! She now has a room dedicated to her scrapbook stuff!! The pink room!!
I am very thankful for Cheri's friendship! She is a loving, caring and very very talented lady!!
So anyway on with the challenge!! Below is the sketch!
This is my take on the sketch!
The sentiment is by Cheri you can find it over at Graphicat Designs
LOL the sentiment says
"It's better to have loved and lost, Then to live with the psycho the rest of your life"
LOL isn't that great!
So I used her sentiment with my Krafting Kimmy stamp! So perfect! Colored with copics and distressed added bling and walla!!
You can join in on this challenge over at Graphicat Designs You don't have to use her digis to enter. Just do the sketch and done! She is also looking for some Design Team members! So make sure you go over and enter her challenge!!

"Good Things Come to Those Who Wait"

So one of my very dear friends have been having a rough start to this year! So of course I had to make her a card! In hopes that it would cheer her up! I hope it worked!!
I colored with my copics and the stamp I bought from a friend of mine!
I love these tickets!! I cut them out with my silhouette and stamped on the with my close to my heart stamps!
This is the inside of the card!
and of course these are my favorite roses! A must have in every scrapbook room! I made these with a sizzix die. If you twirl them with a set of tweezers you don't get a big gap in the center! I used stickles rock candy to make it look like rain drops.
I hope you like it as much as I did!!
