Are Butterflies Office Supplies!

I wanted to play in the SC challenge and I really set out to do so. But....somewhere I got lost and forgot that I was supposed to be using office supplies on my card!  That is the challenge! So the 'paper clip' is my 'office supplies'. LOL! I think the cold medicine is fuzzing up thinking. Anyway it was fun to just color and create! I hope each of you are having a great Sunday and your day is filled with blessings!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: Butterfly Kisses
There's two things I know for sure
She was sent here from heaven
And she's daddy's little girl
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes
And I thank God for all of the joy in my life
Oh but most of all
For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
Walk beside the pony daddy it's my first ride
I know the cake looks funny daddy but I sure tried

Darn that spot!

I have been sick all week with the nastiest cold, cough, headache, fever crud! So, even though my house looks like a bomb went off in it, I took today to play and ink up some new stamps. I don't know which I think is cuter, Tilda or the Kangaroo! I enjoyed the time to color and relax (in between coughs and sniffs). I was ready to glue all my pieces together when the most awful thing happened. My nose dripped right on the chin of poor Tilda....that is the spot you can see. The more I tried to hide it the more the Copics lifted off. Do I need to spray it with Lysol before I give it away? rude? Anyway, I am entering this card at the Totally Tilda challenge. LOL!  I hope each of you are having a wonderful week-end. We are watching the Boise State Bronco's play New Mexico. Go Broncos! This is a day of play for me!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: (Had to pick one from the Bee Gees because of the kangaroo!0
There's a light
A certain kind of light
That never shone on me
I want my life to be lived with you
Lived with you
There's a way everybody say
To do each and every little thing
But what does it bring
If I ain't got you, ain't got ?
You don't know what it's like, baby
You don't know what it's like
To love somebody
To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you

Happy Birthday Sweet 16

Can you believe it is almost October? September has just flown by and we still have not had fall weather yet. We have had fires around us all summer and the valley where I live has been filled with smoke. I am praying for a week of rain to clear the air! Now, on to my card! This card is for a special young lady from church who is turning sweet 16. I thought this sweet Image, called Acrobat Little Doll from The Paper Shelter would be perfect for her.  We have a fun challenge at The Paper Shelter this is "Anything Goes". Now

Happy Birthday Amy!

There is a young lady at my church who is celebrating her birthday on the 1st. She joined the Air Force and has been working hard learning all the skills she needs to succeed as a soldier. I wanted to make a card that would let her know I was thinking of her and that I was very proud of her. I thought this Kenny K image would be the perfect image for this. I love the long stem rose in her hand. I tried to make this card look feminine while also looking soldier like! I hope I have achieved that look.
So, Happy Birthday Amy! I hope your day is a special one, we at FBC are all proud of you!
I hope each of you have a wonderful week-end. Blessings!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: Because He Lives
God sent His son, they called Him Jesus
He came to love, heal, and forgive.
He lived and died to buy my pardon,
An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives.
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, All fear is gone.
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living just because He lives.

Another Criss Cross Card

I just had to give the Criss Cross card one more try. I used this cute little image from The Paper Shelter called "Franky Pastry". I had a fun time coloring her in the 'green'. My DP is from a pack from last year and I love it. I used paper punches to make my paper lace. A ribbon and a spider charm finished off this fun card.
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song:
In the cool of the evening when ev'rything is gettin' kind of groovy,
I call you up and ask you if you want to go and meet and see a movie,
First you say no, you've got some plans for the night,
And then you stop, and say, "All right."
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you.
You always keep me guessin', I never seem to know what you are thinkin'.
And if a fella looks at you, it's for sure your little eye will be a-winkin'.
I get confused, 'cause I don't know where I stand,
And then you smile, and hold my hand.
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you.

She's In Love With The Boy!

This is a new Sarah Kay Stamp I just bought. I thought it was so sweet and would make a great anniversary card. My dh and I just celeberated our 40th  wedding anniversary. But, I gave this card to another couple. LOL! It is time for another challenge at ABC's and this one was a new one for me. It is the letter "X" for criss cross card. I did discover that I need to get some sentiment stamps for anniversary cards. I am seriously lacking in that department. I can't wait for you to see the fabulous work by the other DT members, they are stunning!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: (Trisha Yearwood)
Katie's sitting on the old front porch
Watching the chickens peck the ground
There ain't a whole lot going on tonight
In this one horse town.
Over yonder, coming up the road
In a beat-up Chevy truck
Her boyfriend Tommy, he's laying on the horn
Splashing through the mud and the muck
Her daddy says, "he ain't worth a lick
When it came to brains, he got the short end of the stick"
But Katie's young and man she just don't care
She'd follow Tommy anywhere
She's in love with the boy

Just Around the River Bend

Have you ever made a card where you had a different plan when you began and then you just went somewhere totally different with it? That is what happened to me with this card. I had such a good time coloring this sweet image from The Paper Shelter, that I lost myself and just enjoyed crafting.This card is for our next challenge at The Paper Shelter! I also have some exciting news for you! IF YOU USE A PAPER SHELTER IMAGE you are eligible to win a $30 gift certificate!
We have a fun challenge for you this time "Punch It"! Dig out those fun punches and grab a Paper Shelter Image and join in the fun.
I used the "Spring Princess" Image, but chose to do a Christmas card with her. As you can see she is such a versatile image that she would work with any season. I hope  each of you are having a wonderful week that is filled with blessings!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: [Pocahontas]
What I love most about rivers is:
You can't step in the same river twice
The water's always changing, always flowing
But people, I guess, can't live like that
We all must pay a price
To be safe, we lose our chance of ever knowing
What's around the river bend
Waiting just around the river bend
I look once more
Just around the river bend
Beyond the shore
Where the gulls fly free
Don't know what for
What I dream the day might send
Jut around the river bend
For me
Coming for me

Buzzin by to say hi!

Happy September everyone! It is just beginning to feel like fall here in Idaho. I do hope we get lots of rain soon that will aid the firefighters in putting out the fires that are all around us. Our valley has had a thick blanket of smoke hanging in it for over a month.
It is time for a new challenge at ABC's Challenge Blog! Our challenge this time is "W" for wishes! We want to see some kind of wish on your "Happy Birthday", Congratulations, any kind of wish will do! We have some fabulous prizes being offered by The Paper Shelter and LOTV! Plus!!!!....yes there is may be chosen to be a 'guest designer' for ABC! Have fun and be sure and check out the rest of the DT's lovely work!
This image is called "Teddy Bear Picking Flowers!" It was my very first image from THE PAPER SHELTER and I have always loved it. I colored the image with Copics and added a bit of Spica pen to the bees! I also added a brad 'bee'. I used a sentiment from my very 1st card challenge win. (This was the prize!) My 'wish' is on the inside of my card!
