This is the Sweet and Sassy Design Team challenge. It is a Sketch Challenge this week and I thought I would play along. Here's my creation...........
This card went together pretty easy and my DH likes it better than the clown card I made for his grandson. Sooo I guess I give this one up from my stash and put the clown in. LOL!
Korin of Sweet and Sassy stamps is also offering some great blog candy too. Check it out here.
This is the Mojo Monday Sketch this week. I finally got my mojo going today too. This is what I came up with.
I really felt like it was springtime today I guess that's why I choose these colors. I'm really happy with the way it turned out and it is just another birthday card to add to my ever growing mother's day stash. This is my plan to try and get 30 birthday cards made for my mother-in-law so she will not have to get out to buy or send birthday cards for all the family. If I don't get 30 made I will have a big dent in it at least. I guess she will get however many I get made. LOL!
Hope everyone has had a great Monday and is enjoying the weather wherever you are.

I did get 3 complete LO's done. I just took every piece of paper I owned and just about every embellishment I owned too. I also took all my pictures and the way I decided what to scrapbook was to just grab a pack of pictures and start. I guess you can see I grabbed Christmas 08. Even though later one I seen Christmas 07 pictures that needed done too. LOL. There's always another day. All in all I had a great time and cannot wait until we have another one.
I hope everyone had a blessed Sunday and I will see you again tomorrow!

I reached down to pick up this mess and it moved...
I now have to put off cleaning my beds and mulching until these little cuties are old enough to get out of the nest and make their way into the world. I ran to the back yard and got Kas and she loved them and wanted to keep them and raise them. We have been through the whole rabbit thing and I say leave them WILD! We now know that boxers and rabbits don't mix. Ugh! I took some great pictures and Kassidee got to tell everybody she seen about them. I know she will check on them everyday now and make sure they are OK. All in all it was a great day hanging out with my big little girl the adopted rabbit mom....

I have a couple of things to show you today and a little story too. The first picture is a stamped image from the Stampin' Up! set called Happy Heart Day. I stamped it in Stazon Ink and Kassidee used the water brush to paint the image. She love to use the water brush now that we figured out how to use it. She loves to paint. I had workshop this past Saturday and she had to show all the ladies how to use the brush. She even had me hang her image on the board. She was so proud of what she did. She told me that she made this for the boy who lives across the street from us. He's 6 years older than her, but he doesn't mind playing with her sometimes. She bugs him a lot like a little sister would an older brother. Especially when his friends are over and she teases him about having a girlfriend. Now the this next card I made for my board to show off some of the new items Close to my Heart has to offer, plus I used the Stamp of the Month called Butterfly Wings. I also used some Fancy Cut Botanicals, Liquid Glass, and Prisma Glitter. It was a fairly easy card, but I think it needed some ribbon. Oh well, it still is alright. Hope everyone had a great weekend and no one in your families are sick. Kassidee and I have been passing it back and forth. She always thinks she has to drink after me and I tell her to just ask me for something to drink and I'll get it that way we can get over the CRUD.

Here's a little sketch card I made from Mary's sketch over at the On Life and Creating blog. Every week she has a sketch on Sunday to try and I thought I'd try it out this week. This is about the third time I've ever attempted a sketch challenge and I'm really beginning to like it.
Anyhoo, I thought I'd do the Created by Courtney Challenge this week also. It is to make something that is inspired by nature. It just so happens that this month's Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart is called Butterfly Wings and I needed to make some samples for my board to show off this cute set. I have a workshop on Saturday and the ladies that usually come were crazy about this set every since the Spring catalog came out. I had a lot of fun with this card, because I tried to tissue stamp the butterfly and I didn't really like it so I took my blush and sweet leaf markers and did the outside of the butterfly, but then realized I didn't have a spring iris marker, so I took my blending pen and the ink pad and made my own marker. I have always had trouble using the blending pen because I never really knew how to use it, but it does come in handy when you don't have the marker you need. I hope everyone had a great Wednesday and look forward to seeing you tomorrow!

Now some dets on this card. I lifted this idea from the Close To My Heart Bulletin Board. I can't remember who made this, but it was so cute I had to do it too. Thanks for the idea! Hope everyone had a great Monday. I'm off work tomorrow so I'll do my MOJO card then. My little girl is sick so I'll play nurse Mommy all day tomorrow too. Hopefully she'll feel to coloring and we can get her birthday thank you cards done. I just got some new Stampin' Up! stamps that are calling to be inked up. Have a nice night!
