Created with Love and Lacy Sunshine

Hello everyone!
I hope you had a great weekend and are ready for our new fortnightly challenge over at

The theme would like to see you work with this time is
What a great one for all kinds of new projects!
Cards, of course, would be super.  But also think of scrapbook layouts...they could be really fantastic with the pics of your little ones and their best buddies.  Or pull out those 'vintage' photos of you in the day with your bff.  Just have some fun!

Our fantabulous sponsor this challenge is one of my absolute favorite stamp companies:
I love everything that Heather does and 
always have so much fun playing with the images she creates.
They just make me smile!!

The image I used for this card is:
Lil' Peanut's Teddy Bear
She is one of the Sticky Wings characters.
One word for her: adorable.

I'm sorry to say that this is going to be my last card that I share over at Created with Love Challenges for a couple of months or so.
As many of you know, I have a torn rotator cuff in my left shoulder.  It's becoming more difficult to craft at this point so it's time to take a rest and wait for my surgery.  My operation is scheduled for February 24th and I'll be in a sling for 6 weeks following that.  Who knows what kind of crafting I can do one-handed though?  I might just be able to come back sooner....I'm sure gonna' try!!

Now it's time for you to get to work on your new "Friends" themed project.  All of us on the CWLC Design Team look forward to seeing what you share with us in the challenge.
Good luck to all who enter!!

You can find this card in the following challenges:
Lacy Sunshine -- Lots of layers
Dream Valley Challenges -- Tag, you're it!

Punchin' it up at Sentimental Sundays

For my second post today,
I'm happy to invite you to our new challenge at
Our theme this week is
"Pack a Punch"
So we want to see your new creations using either a punch or a diecut.

Our fantastic sponsor this week is

My card is for my youngest son, Joe.  Betcha' never would have guessed his name on your own, right?  He is celebrating his 19th birthday TODAY!  Holy cow.  How did that happen?  It's all gone by so quickly!

I used a 1" square punch from Fiskars to punch out areas to place stickers.  The fun image is one that I put together using Doodle Pantry's Birthday Accessories.  I used a new method to color the images.  Using my ProMarker Blender pen, I colored with chalk.  I need to work with this technique more (obviously) but it was really fun!  I look forward to giving it another go sometime.

Because of my shoulder injury, this is going to be my final card over at Sentimental Sundays for a couple of months or so.  I can't wait to get back to work with all of the Design Team over there.  In just the short amount of time I've been a member of the team, they've become some really fun friends.  Very supportive, friendly, funny and tremendously talented.  I'm lucky to be a part of it all!

Please take a minute and head on over to
The inspiration pieces shared are sure to get your creative Mojo goin'!  We look forward to seeing all of the great new entries.
