I hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday! Mine is very quiet and peaceful! My dear hubby has to work all day. So that leaves me home alone :-) I will be trying very hard not to take a nap today! LOL I definitely have my days and nights mixed up! I was up most of the night last night scrapbooking and card making! I did this for the scrapbook challenge on splitcoast. I did add my own second page! The only thing I am not happy about is the title! Though I must admit it looks much better in person than the photo you get to see :-) All in all....I LOVE it!! The Summer Picnic Designer Paper is YUM-O!!! I also LOVE this color combo!! The die-cut blooms add that perfect touch!! Okay, I just finished typing the recipe section and had to come back and add....I didn't realize there isn't any stamping or ink used on these pages!! LOL Wow...talk about super easy, huh?!!! :-)
Stamps: none! LOL

I can't believe how tired I was this morning!! Not only did I sleep in, but I took a nap this afternoon!! LOL I am so sad. However, I can't tell you how much better I feel! After waking up I thought I would check out Beate's Weekend Challenge!! I have posted a pic of the sketch. I can't tell you how much I look forward to these!! Anyway, I was in the mood to watercolor so I pulled one of my favorite sets...Heartspeak (retired). I just LOVED this set when it came out and was sad to see it go so soon. It is one of the few sets that I bought just for me without much intention of demonstrating :-) It turned out soooo pretty!! I have been on such a kick using our designer paper!! I can't stop using it! LOL I must admit I wasn't that impressed once I received this paper, but once I started using it....I just LOVE the combination of colors!! I hope you like it too!!Have a great Saturday evening!!!

Yeah, it is Saturday!! This past week has been soooo hectic! LOL I am just so glad I was already prepared for my card buffet last night. ( I had to reschedule last week due to the weather). I am not sure what I would have done! I wish now I would have taken some pic's to share with ya'll! Though I am not sure how my ladies will feel about that! :-)
Anyway on for todays pic's. My scrapbookers meet this coming up Friday evening, so I have been on a scrapbooking kick! This layout was inspired by my last card that I posted and a sketch challenge over at splitcoast! Like I said before this color combo and paper (the little bit I used :-) is out of my comfort zone. However, I just love this color combo!! I think the
pages turned out sooo cute!! I hope you like it!!! Have a great weekend!!!
ps....In case you are wondering why there are very few pic's on my scrapbook pages, it is because I don't have any children (unfortunately) :-)

Here are the rules: (They are simple):
1. Link to the person that tagged you
2. Post the rules on your blog
3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself
4. tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs
5. let each person know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their site..Now, here are my 6 non-important things/habits/quirks!
#1 I have always been a bit of a perfectionist. Some of my friends like to say *whispering* anal....*sigh* I am what I am :-)
#2 I refer to myself as the Queen of all Hobbies.....Master of none. *sigh* I really miss cross stitching!!!
#3 I should have been left handed. My mom had other ideas :-) I can almost use my left as well as my right, except for writing. I had the hardest time learning how to knit and crochet. I finally took a knitting class and she asked if I was righty or a lefty. I told her a righty....well it was getting pretty embarrassing and frustrating that I could not for the life of me figure it out! LOL She finally came and stood behind me....and then said, I thought you told me you were right handed?! Come to find out I was trying to do it like a left handed person! LOL I finally got it all figured out :-)
#4 I LOVE jigsaw puzzles! As a matter of fact I am a bit of a snob...I won't work one less than 2000 pieces! I got a 3,000 piece for christmas that is begging to be worked! I would love to get my hands on a 5,000 or more puzzle! LOL can you imagine??? LOL
#5 I am a Air Force brat....and PROUD of it!! LOL
#6 I am what I like to refer to as an "old soul". I think I was born in the wrong era! I long for the days when men were men and women were women. I would have loved to stayed home barefoot and pregnant! LOL However, the Lord has had other ideas... :-)
Wow...that was much harder than I thought it would be!! Okay, now it is my turn to tag six other great ladies!!
1. If you haven't checked out Flossies Follies you are missing out! She has a great blog!!
2. Another personal favorite is Mountaineer Stamper. Tessie is a just the sweetest and very talented to boot!! I am privilaged that she just signed up under me this month!!
3. Erin over at Scrap Stamp and Be Merry has a wonderful blog as well she is a SU sistah!!
4. Tracey (another SU sistah) over at Lake Shore Stamper always has a wide variety of wonderful projects!! I just LOVE the eggs that have been decorated with rubons!
5. Robinlea (and another SU sistah) over at About A Girl has a darling blog! You definitely don't want to miss out on hers!!
6. Last but not least check out Jenni (and yet again anothe SU sistah) over at Ramblings by Me! She has been MIA for a couple of weeks, moving. But she definitely knows her stuff!! Don't miss out :-)
Okay, I will be getting in touch with the six people I have tagged!! Have fun looking at their blogs!!!

I case'd it from the Mini Occassion catalog! The only thing changed is the colors. I was looking for an easy card for my ladies and I needed to use the Die Cut Blooms that I ordered in bulk. I sure do hope SU continues offer items in bulk! So much nicer and easier on the pocketbook!! LOL
It is a very easy simple card...the only tedious part was cutting out the butterfly! I just LOVE this stamp set! I know, I know, I keep saying it!! LOL
Thanks for looking! Have a great day!!

If you have any questions please let me know! Thanks!
For todays card there isn't much stamping involved. I ordered the Die Cut Blooms and I LOVE them!! Super easy card and I just love these colors together!! The only stamping is the sentiment at the bottom and I embossed it using white embossing powder. I also embossed the little flower and used a dimensional to pop it up!
I hope everyone has a great day!!

Anyway, on to today's card. Don't you just love the colors in today's card? I, of course, used one of my favorite sets yet again!! I really do hope this stamp set is around for awhile! I just love that hummingbird! LOL I am not sure if you can tell but the base of the card is basic black. Also, I couldn't resist using Iridicent Ice Embossing Powder on the flowers! I think everything else is pretty straight forward!! Happy Monday!!!
