I can't believe.................

..............that as of tomorrow I will be the Mom of 2, yes TWO, 18 year olds!!! Dylan turns 18 tomorrow so I thought I'd use this awesome Kenny K Digi Image - Rock Dude to whip a card. Masculine cards are the hardest for me to make but this image sure made it a lot easier for me!!

I used this card for the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz - Autumn Colors
Card Patterns - Sketch
The Crafty Calendar Challenge - Birthday
Creative Inspirations - Birthday
Party Time Tuesdays - Birthday
Crazy 4 Challenges - Birthday

My card:


I have really become hooked on digi images, especially the Kenny K ones and am thrilled with their new Christmas release!!! You really need to check them out, I bought them last night about midnight and just finished printing them out to play with tonite!!! I did find a few other sites with some cute digis so if you know any others leave me a comment letting me know, I am always on the lookout for cute images and I love digi because they are extremely easy to work with and so versatile being able to resize and flip them!!

I am so thankful today was a holiday (for us government workers LOL) because I definitely needed the time off after working all weekend at Balloon Fiesta!! I had a great time and def enjoyed working it but it is tiring even though it isn't hard the hours are long!!! We started about 4 in the morn (well that's when we got out of bed) and typically didn't get back into bed until well after 11 at night!!! Here's a few pics for you to enjoy, I have tons more so if you wanna see them click on the right side of my page and go to my FaceBook page as I have more posted there!!!

Thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!!

Fabulous card! Thanks for joining in this week at Creative Inspirations Wednesday Challenge.


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???
