Momo's Tuesday Challenge

I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I saw Momo's Tuesday challenge. Black, White and ANY color? Really!? And of course I love penguins and I can't get away from that darn wonderful Create a Critter cart so naturally... A purple penguin:-) My 8 week old even slept an hour this afternoon so I could make the card AND upload it! I think he's making progress Ü

Cuttlebug Spot Challenge

Well I literally had 20 min to get a card done. I'm not so sure I'm happy with it but, I wanted to make sure I had an entry for the Cuttlebug Spot Challenge this week. The theme was babies and you'd think I'd have enough inspiration to come up with something more creative. But, maybe that was my issue. Baby overload! If I have more time this weekend I'll try a LO and be a little more creative.

Paper Playtime Challenge #9 Anniversary

I really like these Lite carts. Even though I can't get them dirt cheap on Ebay I still think they are a value. The images are very relevant and the layers are easy to put together. It helps a not so artistic person, like myself, make something very satisfying. This 8x8 LO uses the Hoot n Holler Lite cart. I made this not only for the Paper Playtime challenge but also for my DH. Our anniversary is tomorrow (26th) and I thought I'd put a cute pic of us in the frame and give it to him.

Tuesday Challenge

I made this onsie from the B is for Boy lite cart for Momo's Tuesday challenge. I love doing these iron ons. My 6 week old barely fits in it at 12 pounds. I guess I'll be making some more soon:-)

Paper Cutz Challenge #53

Well, this was a no brainer! Paper Cutz Challenge was to make a card, LO or craft project using a digital, hand stamped or Cricut cut image of a monkey, skunk, squirrel or hedgehog and any colors we'd like. I just love the Create A Critter cart so needless to say I used the hedgehog for this challenge:-) I also needed a birthday card for a little girl who's party my son is attending this weekend. I used the stamped wording from My Pink Stamper's Punnylicious set. I wrote "...about your birthday" on the inside in order to make it a birthday card.

Throwback Thursday Challenge #9

Wow! I got another LO done! Yipee! Only a million more to go;-) I'm counting on these challenges to help me make a dent in my scrapbooking! This LO is for Emma's Throwback Thursday Paisley/Back to school challenge. As you can see this LO is for the pics taken when my son started Kgtn. He starts 3rd grade next Monday. Where does the time go? I have a feeling time is going to escape me even more with an infant in the house.

Paper Playtime & Paper Cutz Challenges

I had forgotten I made a promise to myself to use these blog challenges as an incentive to get more scrapbooking done. Due to time limitations with a newborn and two other children (and 2 dogs) I've been cheating and doing cards. Now that I'm feeling a little more spunky and Ryan's in somewhat of a nap routine I'm going to pump out some LOs. Simple at first, but at least I'll be closing the 13 year+ gap. This LO is for Paper Playtime & Paper Cutz Challenges. I definitely have plenty of pics for that challengeÜ

Momo's Tuesday Challenge

This is my entry for this week's Tuesday Challenge at http://madebymomo.blogspot.com . This week's theme was Flower Shower. I used two carts for this card, Create A Critter for the umbrella and Sugar and Spice for the flower button.

Paper Playtime Challenge #10 Miss You

I apologize in advance for the short, uninteresting blog post. I've been running on empty today but really wanted to get at least one challenge done before the week is officially over. I had cut the background out to lay horizontal but ended up putting it on vertically. I probably should have auditioned all of the backgrounds before taping it down. That ATG tape doesn't come off well if you change your mind:-) I added the buttons on the bottom because it looked like it needed something down there. I used the cute lamb from Sugar and Spice Lite cart. I does look a little more juvenile than I wanted it to. Oh, well. At least I got one done. I think I'll try and stay awake and get another challenge done before the next feeding:-)

Well, bad news from the Orthopod. I need to have surgery on my hands to alleviate the carpel tunnel. He says I already have muscle atrophy in my right hand and I don't have any other option. I guess I'll need to learn how to use one hand for the next 6 to 9 weeks, to make cards:-) I'm definitely stubborn. I love these challenges and I'm not going to let a few stitches and a brace interfere! Wish me luck!
