Good Morning friends!!  How are you this WONDERFUL morning?!   I thought I would stop by to share my FIRST.........Oh Scrap! creation with you!!  It has been a LONG several months around here, so I decided to get back to basics!  I decided to have FUN and create a bit!  That being said?  I joined Iva over at OH SCRAP!, so I could do just that!  Iva has SO many awesome stamps to offer and other goodies too!  You will DEF have to check her out!

My little card share today, was created with the NEW Paper Smooches set, WOOFERS & TWEETERS!  Which, of course is available in Iva's shop!  This set is SUPER cute and has SO many great images to offer!!  Here is what I did with a few of them!  I combined the polka dotted puppy, the bitty birdie, and one of the great sentiments!  LOVE how it turned out and I hope you do too!

I layered chocolate SU cardstock and Basic Grey DSP!  I used my paper trimmer to make some squares and colored my images in with y trusty Copics.  After that was all ready, I wrapped up my project with some brown jute twine!  Be sure to visit Iva at OH SCRAP! and see what AWESOMENESS she has for ya!!  you have a WONDERFUL Tuesday, thanks for stopping by, and I will see you next time!  Remember...............ENJOY LIFE!!

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS!!  I have missed you!  SO.... much has been going on around here, I would not even KNOW where to start!!  SO, I will NOT bore you, let alone blurt it all out at once!!  We would literally be here FOREVER!!  Haha!  I will explain it over time, how about that!!  We will do a little CREATIVE sharing?  Then a little ME sharing?  At EACH visit!!  What d'ya say?  Cool?  LOVE it!!

Let's get to the FUN part, shall we?  I am SO excited to have created something!  It has been SO long and I have really missed it!  My dear friend KORIN, over at Sweet N Sassy Stamps, is celebrating!!  Yepper, SWEET N SASSY STAMPS is 5!!  Can you believe it?  My, how time flies!!  In honor of their FIFTH birthday, Korin is throwing a BIRTHDAY BASH, along with a FABULOUS Birthday Blog Hop!!  How AWESOME is that?!  That being said, Korin has gotten together all her "FREINDS OF SWEET N SASSY" and invited them to be a part of this WONDERFUL hop!!  I am SO blessed to call Korin my friend and blessed to have been asked to be a part of this event!!  Thank you to Korin for being SO amazing and for bringing us such BEAUTIFUL stamps to play with!!

You can check out my little creation below!  I swiped my daughter, Kyah's, Thoughtful Rhubarb Set!  She LOVES this bear and I have to say, he is growing on me too!  I used to just do the Cocoa Mouse thing?  BUT, this bear?  SO sweet!!  I will DEF have to create with him MORE often!!  I ESPESCIALLY love him on kraft!!  Before I show you Rhubarb though, I have a QUICK story!!  You will see my PIC?  Is a tad different this time around!  I left my camera at work?  YIKES!!  Imagine my panic of course!!  However, I just got a new phone?  I decided to try the iphone 5!!  I have always had Droids.  Everyone close to me had given me crap for wanting to TRY the iphone, BUT, I had to do it!  SO, for the next 2 years, I will have this phone and thus far?  I am liking it!!  People had told me about the pictures this thing can take and know what??    They were RIGHT on!!!  My NEW iphone takes GREAT pics and my old Droid?  YUCK!!!  Now, I am sure part of it was the user.  What can I say?!  Take a look for yourself!  It'll do in a pinch, FOR sure!!  Thanks for stopping by and thanks for hopping with SWEET N  SASSY STAMPS!!  I love them and Korin ROCKS!!  On your way out, be sure to check out the DETAILS of the HOP, also below!  Take care all and remember............ENJOY LIFE!!!

Easy, right?  You betcha!!  Although for a pink person like me?  It proved to be DEF interesting!!  Haha!  I decided to give my CAS skills a shot again!!  As you all know, I am working on that!  SO, here is my challenge creation!

I used the NEWLY released HEART STRINGS set, along with my Copics!  I have seen many projects that utilize a simple border like mine and have been DYING to try my hand at it!!  I used my Spellbinder Squares and my Black Copic Multiliner!  I stamped the CA-ute little house first than lined up my die and traced the line from there!  I then took my Copic colors and laid them down on my acrylic block.  I used my "0" Copic as a paint brush and picked up the colors off the block to paint onto my image!  LOVE how it turned out!  This is a challenge you NEED to play along with!  I mean, seriously?  Who does not LOVE creating and having a chance at a PRIZE!!  You can find ALL the details over on the PAPER AND SUCH BLOG!!   Not to mention some AWESOME design team inspiration!!  To play along, all you have to do is CLICK ON THE CHALLENGE BUTTON, on the right hand side of the blog!!
