Thanks to everyone for the sweet birthday wishes. We had a wonderful weekend getaway. And without further adieu...the winner...of the blog


I was very surprised to see how many people I share my birthday with. AND if you answered George Washington, Chopin or Edna St. Vincent Millay your name went into the drawing. Thanks so much to everyone who left comments and shared my blog address with your bloggers as well.

Kadie's Kandy

Hi Friends! It's almost my 31st birthday and in celebration I was thinking about giving away some delicious Blog Candy! How 'bout that??

So, here is the challenge. My bday is Feb 22 (I'll give you that much). Now all you have to do is tell me who I share my bday with AND post a link to this giveaway on your blog. If you don't have a blog, post a link showing that you told a friend (ie:a post on SCS). All the entries that have the answer I am looking for will be put into a hat and one lucky winner will be chosen on Monday, Feb 23rd. You can have up to three guesses too!

What's the prize??? An Anya or Ian stamp of your choice from The Greeting Farm.

Sound good? Good luck to all and thanks for helping me celebrate my Birthday!!

**note** I do not work for TGF, I just really love their stamps and enjoy supporting places that bring me such joy.

Tea Party

We certainly could use a bit of color today (a dreary one in Seattle) and this card has enough color to brighten the whole week. I made this tea party invitation using the Wonderland stamp set from The Greeting Farm. Aren't these stamps adorable?

This card was so much fun to make. I love coloring these images and I was so excited to find this PP from K&Co. called Berry Sweet. I also did a bit of hand stitching on this, and for those of you who had asked about yesterday's card, yes, that one was hand stitched as well.

I hope you enjoy today's card and have a wonderfully colorful Wednesday!

Stamps: The Greeting Farm, Wonderland
Paper: K&Company, Berry Sweet; AC Textured CS Earthtones; Mat Stack Brights
Ink: SU! Markers; Black Stazon
Embies: Making Memories Button; Dashes, Dots & Checks (Michael's Brand) Ribbon, Pink Thread, Rectangle Scalloped Nesties

A Wee Fairie

Hi Friends! I have been so excited to show you this card. Well, actually, I was super excited to get this card finished and then super excited to show you. I don't know about you but I love to color up images, so I have tons colored up and ready to be made into's the layouts that often take a little bit longer to come together. But when they do...sometimes it's like magic.

I love Fairies and this little one (her name is Alva) comes to you from Magnolia Stamps. I'm not sure if you can see it from the picture but her leaflet skirt is 3-Dimensional and sparklie. As always, thanks for popping in!

February in the Sisterhood

I'm part of a monthly card swap that just completed it's first month's swap in January. It has been such a blessing and a blast getting to know the gals in this group and swap creations, as well as ideas! I know many of us will be life long friends. Yay!!

This month the theme is Mardi Gras and our hostess is the ever so lovely and delightful (and hilarious) Mary.

Mardi Gras is quickly approaching--bring on the pancakes, I'm ready for Fat Tuesday! Yummm!!
P.S. There is clear Spica pen on the sentiment but my poor photo skills didn't capture it. 6 lucky ducks will have the proof IRL!

Anya Rocks

The Greeting Farm and Club Anya both had card challenges this week. It was my goal to try and make cards for both, as well as the SCS Wednesday card sketch challenge. I was so glad to be able to combine one of them...and here they are for your viewing pleasure. Thanks for stopping by!

It's Cullen Time!!

I know you've all been on pins and needles waiting for me to share another Twilight character that I've seen in one of the FABulous Greeting Farms stamps! I'm sorry, ladies, I know you're just dying to see Jacob...but I have to have something to keep you coming back!

Here is the lovely Pretty Hat Anya masquerading as the enchanting and ever so exquisite Esme.

Thank you, thank you to my dearest, Sandra for sending me this image. This collection would not be possible without you!! And thank you, thank you to all my Sistahs because YOU are my inspiration and my motivation!

Hugs and Hap-Happy Tuesday!

P.S. Did you see Kelly is featured on Elzybell? You Go, Girl!

Baby On Board!

Hi Friends! It's Monday morning and I have another card for you using Jasmine from In Style Stamps. Isn't she the cutest little Mommy stamp? I love the retro look of her. I finally took advantage of the wonderful sketch challenges that SCS has every week, as well as my new Wizard die cutter (yay! my nesties finally work!!) I decided to go a little wild with this card and finally make use of my 3-D scrapbook letters that have been collecting dust. Hopefully they are a pleasant addition to the card and not a deterrent.

Hope you all had a great weekend and I look forward to stopping by your craft spaces this week! If you have a moment check out the new Greeting Farm stamps that were released yesterday and...don't forget it's Hanna Stamps release week!! Be sure to stop by DT members blogs and then join the crew on Thursday for the release party! See ya there!
