Penguin Love

You must agree these are the most adorable penguins.  I used a variety of products with this card.  The penguin stamp set is by Stampendous using Spectrum Noir markers.  The Sizzix framelit step up card was the perfect way to create my scenery. Martha Stewart snow flake punch is the embellishment you can't see on the first photo. I sprinkled a little Stickles on them to make them pop. I can't believe it took me three hours to create the card, but I'm pleased with it.

MOJO Monday to the rescue!

Wow what a busy holiday season and it was truly hard to get back into the craft of things.  After decorating 12 Christmas trees and decors and a week with my nephew I needed a couple of weeks to recuperate.  Oh what fun!!  I LOVE the holiday season and now since the New Year has come, it's time to get back into cards and layouts.  Yes I said layouts.  My nephew was disappointed his album was not updated.  I started with my first card of the year thanks to MOJO Monday.

Prima Doll Pocket Letter Swap

At Embrace Our Art, I hosted a Prima Doll Pocket Letter Swap.  Julie Nutting Prima Dolls are like Lay's potato chips, you can't just do one.  I made three cooking theme pocket letters. The cooking embellishments were purchased for a recipe journal that I never started and thought, why not put them on the pocket letter and send recipes?

And here are a few extras I made.

Memory Garden

Just wanted to post my Memory Garden created for our Pink Sunday in the Fellowship Hall. My goal was to make 30, but 23 was all I could complete.  It was our Annual Breakfast sponsored by the Young Women Association at my church.  Our theme was 'It Ain't Over'. Unfortunately I didn't think of taking photos of the rest of the decorations until we broke everything down.


The Memory Garden remained on the wall.  They were done with pink 8 1/2 x 11 papers.  This idea came from my sorority when we did an entire backdrop for the dais.    The signs were done by one of our advisors Debra Colvin.  We have six Breast Cancer survivors at our church, but three have gone on to be with the Lord.

Friday Night Chat Challenges

Enjoyed tonight's Friday Night Challenge over at Embrace Your Art.  Tiare better known as Classygirl was our host and she allowed an hour for us to create instead of 30 minutes so I got a chance to take my time.  Our first challenge was to create a project with our favorite technique and use our handwriting.  I painted this on a watercolor sketch pad using acrylic paint, watercolor, masking, glitter...I don't think I have a favorite technique.




Entering in the following challenges:  
Alphabet Challenge - Pretty in Pink 
Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes Family/Friendly Week #251-252
Crafters Cafe - Use lots of Pink

The 2nd challenge was a Sisterhood challenge including a quote about sisterhood. Love this Bug A Boo digital and the quote is heartwarming.
