I've Miss You All!

          My-oh-my how I've missed you all! My sincere apologies for not being around in a while as it has been almost a year since my last post, which I cannot believe it has been that long! I would like to thank everyone that has messaged me to check up on me and who have kept me in their prayers, it has meant the world to me! For those who might not know, sadly the health issues I've dealt with over the years rapidly got worse along with new health problems arising on top of that, I unfortunately had to abruptly take time away from crafting in order to focus on my health. Currently things are being managed as best as possible so I am able to get back to doing what I love, crafting and card making :) I have just started to work on some projects so as I get them completed I will share them with you all. I hope you all will please stay tuned to my blog so we can get to crafting together again ;) Talk to you all soon!

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!

          Howdy all! I am here today to share a card I made using a super cute digi image from Craftin Desert Divas called Coffee Cup Mouse. I absolutely love coffee so when I saw this my mind started going crazy with all the things I wanted to do and stamp sets I wanted to combine, sadly I couldn't do everything that I wanted or else this card would have been one hot mess, lol! However, I ended up pairing it with some of my most favorite Craftin Desert Divas stamp sets called Thankful Squeaks and Lovies. I of course had to jazz my card up with some sparkly goodness so I used Wink of Stella on my coffee cup and the eyes of that adorable mouse as well as inside on the sentiment. I was also super blessed to receive the new Rose Gold Embossing Powder from Simon Says Stamp which went perfectly with the colors on my card so I used that to emboss the sentiment seen on the front of the card.
          That pretty much wraps up my card but before I finish up I wanted to remind you about all the fun things happening at Craftin Desert Divas during the month of April. Starting April 1st Craftin Desert Divas will be starting a new Monthly Digi Challenge. The theme will is "Welcome Spring", so we would love to have you join us, and by doing so you could have the chance to win a $10 code to use in the CDD Shop! Anytime during the month of April just click here to be taken to the CDD Facebook Gallery where you can find out further details and upload your entry. You can also find the weekly free digital stamp over at the CDD Shop in which you could use for the challenge as long as it fits the theme. Isn't that awesome! Craftin Desert Diva's will be having their "Linky Parties" as well, which you can find all that information in the CDD Facebook Gallery too. Then starting on April 4th they will be starting Sneak Peeks of the April Release which you can click here for all the Release details. Wow, I know that's a lot but it's going to be so much fun so I hope you will join us! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today, it means the world to me that you took the time! I wish you a wonderful day!

"Shades of Green"

          Happy Saturday ya'll! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? I myself will be having some crafting fun since I won't be going anywhere due to my kiddos are sick with the flu. Boy that stuff seems to be spreading like wild fire this year! Hoping you all avoid it because I think it's the worst flu my kids have ever had.
          If you plan on getting crafty this weekend then why not make a card and join us for the Craftin Desert Diva's Digi Stamp Monthly Challenge! This month the theme is "Shades of Green". I used this theme to make the card I will be sharing with you today. The image I used is the "My Little Sweet Pea Bear" Digi Stamp from the CDD Shop. The base of my card is an A2 side fold measuring 5 ½ H x 4 ¼ W. I used alcohol markers to color this precious image but then I decided to jazz it up and added shades of green glitter to parts of the image. Woo Hoo, this cutie patootie sparkles like crazy! It also adds a fun element to the card. I have attached pictures of my card below along with a list of all the products I used :)
          We would love it if you played along in the challenge too and by doing so you could have the chance to win a $10 code to use in the CDD Shop! So, when you have finished at my blog click here to be taken to the CDD Facebook Gallery where you can find out further details and upload your entry. You can also find the weekly free digital stamp over at the CDD Shop in which you could use for the challenge as long as it fits the theme. Isn't that awesome! Thanks so much for joining me today! I wish you all a wonderful, blessed, and flu free weekend ;)
