A Thank You Donut

Happy Thursday! 

Today is going to be a busy day. I am getting ready for a Carson's Creations First Extravaganza card party this Saturday. I figured people like to have Pampered Chef parties, Scentsy parties, and Thirty-One why not try a card party. I am going to display my cards, have some yummy treats (my daughter is making cupcakes and brownie pops), and do a few giveaways. Should be a great day to get together with some friends!

Before getting busy, I'd like to share this donut. I have seen a few different ones and since I LOVE donuts (Boston Cream is my favorite and strawberry frosted is actually both of my kids favorite) I couldn't resist. 

I found the donut at the Silhouette On-line store. I added a pink glitter glue and kept all the sprinkles white. The background is chalkboard paper by My Mind's Eye.  

A pink organza bow and some pink skittles surround the computer generated sentiment.
Hope you will stop by Pause Dream Enjoy Linky Party this week for our Sweet Treats theme. You can choose ice cream, cookies, cake, fruit...anything that you like!

Other Challenges:

Hope you have a fabulous day. I am going to get prepared for Saturday. Wish me luck!

The Great Outdoors...Let's Go Camping!

Hello Everyone,

Welcome back and thanks for stopping by on this terrific Tuesday. Today I am sharing the new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas. Hope you will join us this week!

This Week's Challenge...
The Great Outdoors
In honor of National S'mores Day on August 10th

Here is my Design Team project...
We had a camper similar to this when I was younger and we would travel along the east coast. I remember going to the Smoky Mountains National Park once and a bat being on the outside near the door handle. My Mom freaked out! We all thought it was a bear the way she was screaming, but was only a bat! A memory I will never forget!

A pair of twin bows to hold the curtains open. Time to enjoy the view and the fresh air!

Found this stamp in my stash. Hubby made fun of it, so I told him that I needed the Jaded Blossom Great Outdoors set. All of a sudden he loved this stamped sentiment. : )
Other Materials:
DCWV paper ~ The Green Stack
brown and grey card stock
Ranger Archival ink ~ potting soil
brown pearl

Hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "The Great Outdoorschallenge. The other design team members want to enjoy the outdoors too. Be sure to check them out today!

Thanks for stopping by!

Super Sunday Sketch Day

Hello Everyone!

Hope you have been enjoying your weekend. We went school shopping yesterday to try and finish everything up. Although it stormed most of the day, we found some great deals. My daughter has been looking for a pair of Jack Rogers sandals and we finally hit the jack pot. They are regularly $128 (I know crazy! I would NEVER pay that much!), but we found a pair at Saks Ave Off 5th on clearance for $29.99. How awesome, huh? Then we were able to order the other colors on-line for the same price and free shipping.  My daughter is super happy now (She will have four pairs for the price of one) and she is ready for school to start!

Since I still have another two weeks before officially going back I plan on working on a few sketches today. I currently have five more on my desktop that I hope to do throughout the day...that is why it is going to be a Super Sunday Sketch Day.

Here is the first of many...

The first sketch is from Jo's Scrap Shack. I love the simplicity and versatility. 

I just noticed the sentiment (a Bo Bunny stamp) is not in the correct location, so I may have to redo another one later today! That's okay! It's Super Sunday Sketch Day! : )

I love these colors from Teresa Collin's Tell Your Story stack. The flower is from Michaels.

Hope you have a FABULOUS Sunday!
