Project Life Update

Remember a while back when I had posted that I entered my design concept for Project Life? Well, I found out that I did NOT win, so I thought I'd share with you my submission and see what your thoughts were. I adored it, so I may use it for my own scrapbooking :) 

LOVE to hear comments, so tell me what you think!

Summer Card: 4th of July

I chose to go with a color combo I adore, and it just speaks summer to me–4th of July!

One year I had sent out photos of my son in a very red, white and blue outfit for the 4th and everyone loved getting cards like this with an updated photo of him when it wasn't your traditional holiday to receive a card. This card would be easily duplicated for mass production for that purpose. :) 
If I had more time this year, I would definitely do that for our family and friends. 

I hope you enjoy the card and would LOVE to read your comments.

DING, DING, DING...I won the Lime-A-Licious Blog Hop Challenge!

I can't tell you how excited I am to announce that I won the Lime-A-Licious Blog Hop Challenge over at SP&Company! My second submission won so I'm really glad I chose to enter both cards instead of just one. This was the one I really wanted to enter and I guess I'm not the only one who loved it.

Here is the actual post where my card is shown!

SP&Company Lime-a-licious Blog Hop...TAKE 2!

I told you, I love green!! I wanted to submit another card for the SP&Company Lime-a-licious Blog Hop so I chose this card I recently made. I just love the way it came out! I was thrilled to create my own pattern on the ticket diecuts. You can see it better in the detail. I struggled with what to place over the green dotted background on the base and my BFF pulled these out and man, perfect fit, don't you think?! Love her :) Hope you love my card I came up with. Comments are appreciated!!!

 Here's a link to the post for the blog hop:

SP&Company Lime-a-licious Blog Hop

This is my first submission for the SP&Company blog hop!! This months' theme is to use lime green. I love green and was excited to be able to use the color on a card I had fun creating. Here is my take on the lime green (actually, you can use any shade of green; how awesome, right?!)

 Below is the detail up close showing the embossed butterfly and the pearl accents and that awesome black paper (which is actually the cover of a paper swatch book that I tore off and put to great use!! Hey, I work at a printing company and when the books get updated, these just get thrown away...GASP. I take them home and use the paper for cards and such!).

Here is the the link for hop:

Thank you for stopping by to check out my take on the awesome challenge of lime green :) I hope you enjoyed the card I made and would love comments!!
