Happy Saturday!!!

What a great day I have had spending the morning scrapping with my daughter! We went to a crop and although we didn't really feel at home there we enjoyed each others company and got several images colored and paper assembled to create the cards when we got home (believe it or not I took only ONE bag and my tool carrier!!) since I didn't have EVERYTHING with me that I usually need.......LOL.....yes, I do NEED it all to work comfortably because as soon as I don't have it I realize I so so so need it!

Anywho - enough chatter, check out my cards!!!


I completed this card for the sketch challenge at Friday Sketchers:


and the Copics used:


A Best Friend is Someone who Brings out the Best in You:

This card takes care of three challenges.

Secret Crafter - Cute as a Bug

Papertake Weekly - Four Seasons (Spring)

Mojo Monday - Sketch challenge.


and the Copics used:


If at First you DO Succeed, Try Not to Look ASTONISHED:

This card is for the challenge at ABC Challenges - Zero embellishments. OMG this was harder than I thought - I kept trying to put ribbon and flowers and gems on this and had to stop myself every time!!!


and the Copics used:


OK, that is all I have to show today. I need to get some school work done then hang with the family.

As always, thank you for stopping by. I really enjoy seeing everyone who has visited and left comments!

Happy Scrappin'!!!

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
