Hope you all had a fantastic Mother's Day.  I sure did.  On Friday that opened up "Yellowstone National Park".  So we figured before the summer tourist starts, why not drive and enjoy mother nature.  We came across so many mothers' with their babies (wildlife).  It was beautiful.  I'm hoping to upload some of our photos within the next couple of days.  So if you have time, please come back and visit.....

In the meantime, I've decided to enter into two different challenges today.

  This first one is through my favorite blogger Pieces of Ali n' Me.  For another Friday Die Cut Challenge which is DCC5 this week.  Their theme for the week is:

{{ PEOPLE }}
So here is my card that I choose to enter:


Card base (black - 5 1/2" x 10 7/8") scored in half
My Community (dad - 4 1/2")
Paper Doll Dress Up (girl - 3") 
Paper Doll Dress Up (princess dress - 3") x 2 
Paper Doll Dress Up (princess hair - 3")
White cardstock hand trimmed to shilouette
Gel pens (white & black)


For my second challenge.  I entered My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #7 - Bling it up!  Here is the card that I entered.  I know it's not Christmas, but its got so much bling.  Rhinestone were add to a number of snowflakes, red glitter was added to the trees, and clear glitter was added to the snow mountains.  If you would like the recipe for this card email me and add "Christmas card" as your subject.

Again, thanks for looking............ Have a blessed day!


  1. Great cards - both of them! The black and white is so striking! It's wonderful that you are getting a head start on your Christmas cards, too. The bling is terrific and adds so much to your card.
