trigger the blooms...

Bloggers...we have to continually be crafty in our post titles, don't we?! Sometimes that seems to be more of a challenge than the actual creations..LOL.

I haven't had a chance to play over at 2s4y in a couple weeks...Love Laura's sketch for this week!

It's me again...trying to hurry up Spring:) I used 3 different patterns from the GCD Canta line...Love it for the fresh & fun designs! The ginormous half bloom to the right of the PTI ribbon is actually fussy cut from my Rock Floral sheet...I don't know if you can tell by the pic but it is super glittery...all the black is black GLITTER...The first panel of patterned paper is Melodic Flowers...I added Kaiser Black bling on a majority of the blooms:) The glittery thickers were throwing me into fits because I couldn't seem to peel off the paper to expose the adhesive...grrr...that's what I get for keeping my nails so short:)


Next up is the Moxie Fab'alicious Tuesday Trigger...check out this delish card picked by Kim Hughes by Kimberly Crawford!

I had all these yellow ideas and check out my end result...

I was hoping that I had a similar yellow patterned paper in my stash...ladies, I have a ginormous stash of patterned papers but no such luck...so I was digging through a boxed set of K&Co paper and came across this fun zig zag goodness...

The Lemonade digi is from the fabbie Regina of
The Cutting Cafe...I love the sentiment...I'm a firm believer that "things happen for a reason"..."take the good from the bad"..."learn from your experiences". The bling is ala A Muse Creative Candy..dontcha love that name? The ribbon and paper is Stampin' Up So Saffron...such a lovely color...so soothing. The button is actually a T $ Spot buy from years ago...it had a foam sticker on the back that I peeled off and it was also threaded up, which I clipped off to make room for the black waxed twine.

I had a lovely surprise yesterday over on the Cards Blog...

My Shaped Pinwheel card was picked up by the fabbie Paige! It was also super exciting to see so many of my bloggie friends have their cards highlighted too!!!


A Big Woot Woot for my Momma...today is her 70th Birthday!!! She is still quite the Spring Chicken and one wise chicklet...yes, sometimes she drives me nutty...hey, it is all a part of that whole mother-daughter relationship thing BUT she IS a strong independent woman. She traveled from Japan to the US in the late 50's. She married my Dad and had 3 kids...I have 2 older brothers. She eventually went from being a stay-at-home Mom to working full-time and raising me and my brothers as a single Mom. As an adult, I have learned so much from her and appreciate all that she has done {and continues to do} for us. I could go on and on about her but bottom line she is one fabulous woman, I'm so thankful for her and her health...

Whew....that was a ton of typing for me...thanks for stoppin' by and taking a peek at my cards for today...Come on back tomorrow for the 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday which is also Day 365! I cannot believe that I've been on the Design Team for a year...it has been a fabulous experience for me...I've learned so much and grown so much as a crafty girl....I'm thrilled to stay on as a Super Sketchy Sunday Designer....P.S. I'm hoping that I can still post my announcement which will be teamed up with some blog candy:)
