I just love cupcakes! This weeks Cricut Cardz Challenge was to make a card using a cake, cupcake, cookies or candy. I used the Sweet Treats Cart along with DCWV Sweet Stack and Scrappy Moms stamp. Thanks for looking:-)

Paper Playtime Challenge #8 Flower Power

Well, I'm a tad behind (okay very behind) with my blog challenges. This card was rather quick. Not too creative I'd have to say but I wanted to be included in the drawing. I've forgotten how much time newborns demand and how much sleep I demand :-/ I've had this tie-dye paper for a long time and I thought it would be perfect for this "challenge".

Momo's Tuesday Challenge

I'm so excited to be doing these blog challenges again. I'm feeling somewhat back to normal (as long as I don't look at my mid-section).  This is for Momo's Tuesday Challenge - Super Girly. I definitely needed to do something girly this week since I was by myself with my 2 week old all week. My husband took my other two up the the lake cabin for vacation while I stayed home. I was able to get a couple of challenges done. I will post the other tomorrow. Thanks for looking:-)

New Addition on the 4th

Ryan Jacob entered the world with 4th of July fireworks ❊ His siblings couldn't be more excited and his mom couldn't be in more discomfort. Four hours of labor (which I have never experienced before and intend to never again) then a quick C section and our newest family member was here. He is a week old now and I'm feeling a just well enough to start checking emails and trying to catch up on all of the blogs I follow. I wonder if there is a remote control for an iMac. I could multi-task to the max during feedings;-) I try and use my Gypsy during nap times but end up napping myself. I can't wait to start scrapping my newest subject Ü

ASC20 Flower Power

Whew! Got another challenge done before baby arrival:-) This one is for Aly's Sunday Challenge. This week she wanted flowers as embellishments or flowers on an image you use. Anyway that we can see flowers. I used different sizes of the flower from Gypsy Wanderings, and distressed with Tim Holtz inks. I took two pics, one w/o Shimmer and one with. Couldn't decide which I liked better. I just bought the Shimmer spray so I thought I'd use it and see how it looks. What do you think?
