We think it is super important to spread the word of HOPE! So we created a new mini called Wings of Hope.

I used the Sketchbook Saturday challenge 90 as the layout of my card!

This stamp set is amazing and requires very little color, if any at all, to showcase it's beauty!  Most of all, I adore it's messages of hope!

Here's a second creation for the blog hop today...using Pillow Talk and Words To Live By...a fabulous combination!

The Unscripted Sketch 199 was the layout inspiration for my card!

A teacher that I work with recently had a precious baby boy, so I made this for her!  She's a teacher, too; hence, the notebook paper:)  
Now off you go to do the HOP!!! :) You never know which blog will pick!

EXPLOSIVE - TAWS March Sneak Peek Day 1

It's an explosive day over at The Alley Way Stamps blog, as we get to share some SNEAK PEEKS of a new stamp set called KA-POW!  

I used a layout that follows these two wonderful sketches...the retrosketches 50 and The Paper Players 134.

I had a "blast"...pun intended...making this cool card!  As I looked through some old designer series paper, I stumbled upon Storybook which has some black and white sketched cartoon perfect to use with the fun explosion images from KA-POW!

Prettiest Witch in Town

I adore these photos of my pretty witch taken last Halloween!  Looking back at photographs of all of the costumes Hannah has worn over the years, this one was a favorite of hers and mine!  The best part about Hannah in her "pretty" witch costume is that pose, all sassy and it!

Hope you'll join us this week for a new scrap challenge, #47, at The Pink Elephant!  This week, the challenge is to use BANNERS...oh, how I love banners!  Best thing about these banners is that they were FREEBIES over at Pixels & Co.

Thanks for stopping by the stage!  Head on over to The Pink Elephant and see what the creative team has whipped up with banners this week!
