~Such Great News


 Summer has been great so far, busy around here but good!  We are just headed to Sandpoint, Idaho for 2 weeks with my family and we are all so excited!  

From The Heart Stamps has a new sketch with a tWiSt this week and it's a great one!

  Our sketch is super fun and the tWiSt this time around is watercoloring.  I did not use the tWiSt this time but I certainly used the sketch.  
 My image is called Surprised Birdbrain and my supplies are as follows:
DCWV- Celebration Stack, CTMH-CS, CTMH and Doodlebug-Washi Tape

I sure hope you'll pop on over to the challenge blog to see the other fun creations from my design team mates!

Have a super week!

~Summer Breeze~


Saturday for me means it's almost Sunday in Brisbane and that means it's time for a new Anything Goes challenge for you over  Lil Patch of Crafty Friends!  



I was lucky enough to be able to work with a fabulous image called Summer Breeze from A Day For Daisies who is just one of our 3 sponsors this time around.  My layout for my card is this week's sketch # 307 from Tuesday Morning Sketches and I paired it with one of my favorite papers from CTMH called Clementine.

A big thank you to our sponsors this week:

A Day For Daisies



Bugaboo Stamps

 I hope you pop on over to the challenge blog to see the awesome variety of cards created by my design team mates.  It's fun to have 3 different sponsors and then you get to see lots of beautiful cards!

Happy crafting my friends and I hope you will enter your card over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends!

Hugs, 

~Happy Birthday Kiddo-MP3 Mike


 It's challenge time again over at Di's Digis!  This week we are asking to see your creations featuring any Celebration!  I went with a Birthday card and a boy one at that! I never seem to have enough boy cards on hand so I thought I would change that!



I have used MP3 Mike from Di's shop for my card and the fun sketch from Outlawz this week.  My papers are old CTMH papers but I thought they were fun for card.

We have a fabulous sponsor yet again this week, so be sure to check them out as well as the rest of my design team mates creations over on the challenge blog.  As always, you do not have to use an image from Di's Digis but if you do, you could win 2 images of your choice just for doing so!

Wishing all of my US friends a Happy 4th of July!!

Have a great weekend everyone and thank for stopping by to visit!

Hugs,
