DS4J Challenge #91 - Water Everywhere

Come join me for DigiStamps4Joy's newest challenge, Challenge #91 - Water Everywhere! I used a fishing theme by a lake with mine. I love to make fishing cards. Not sure why? I have only one brother who likes to fish and he may very well be tired of all the fishing cards I'm always giving him. I should meet a man who loves to fish. That way I can give him the cards... I already know of a sentiment I can use... You've got me hook, line and sinker! lol OK, but that's a story for another post! 

For now, let me show you my card:
Here's a close up of the extras:

Fitztown: Challenge #33 - Lots of Layers

Haha... I'm totally losing it! I was not scheduled to make a lots of layers card for the new challenge at Fitztown but I thought I was and then I thought to myself, well, now I have to share it! lol
Hope you'll pop on over to the challenge blog and see what's going on. In the meantime, here is my card:

Card stock, printed card stock, flowers and rhinestones from my stash

You know, I'm not really big on celebrities and keeping up with any of them. I surely do not know any of the new faces appearing in movies these days. However, Robin Roberts of Good Morning America (GMA). She is an amazing woman! I know there are lots of other people battling cancer but she's visible to me and an inspiration. I'm not much for watching TV. The last time I saw her she was on The Today Show but I saw a blurb about her on GMA. I am in awe of her. She has cancer and is making something with her life! Here I am with my little old leukemia and some days, I feel so bad I just want to curl up and die. Here's this woman... battling breast cancer in a very public way... and LIVING her life. Really... I'm in awe! I've had to give up working. Some days... it is all I can do to get out of bed to get something to eat. I have some days when I have the biggest pity party I can muster up and then I think of Ms. Roberts and I am put to shame. Anyway, when I first saw this image... she was the first person I thought of. I don't know why. I don't think it looks anything like her. But she came to mind and then when I saw this sentiment... I knew what I had to do with it. I'm thinking I will have to be one of those people who sends celebrities letters expecting a response. Well, I'm smart enough to know that if I receive a response, it will be a form letter that millions of other people receive. I just feel the need to share with her how inspiring she has been to me at times. Silly me! This is something I'd always told myself I'd not ever do. Here I am. Mark your calendar! Today is the day I'm gonna do this! lol
I hope you'll swing by the challenge blog and take a peek at what's going on over there. 
Thanks for stopping by my place for a bit.

Hooo Loves You?

This is the cutest momma and baby owl digi I've seen! I just love how it looks like she's really asking the question, "Hooo loves you?" while pulling the baby close to her. :)
Here's my card:
Here's a close up of the background embossed papers:
I've kept the card rather clean and simple. I've made it for my mother. She usually rips envelopes open looking for money so I learned long ago not to go overboard. Instead, I paid attention to detail this time around. I added an embossed panel of "wood" for the tree and a background of embossed "clouds". Ssooo the owls really look like they are up in a tree! lol I thought myself rather clever! Not original... because I've done it before... but very clever... :)
I colored the image with Copic markers and added some rhinestones in the corner for some sparkle.
This is for DeeDee's Digis April Digi of the Month Challenge. The image is from Under Your Wing. I am a follower of this blog. The blog layout I use does not allow me to list challenges on a sidebar. Instead, I display badges and / or links here.

Cherry Pie

OK, so I wrote Tuesday about finding a new progressive challenge. I'm calling it that. It's not really progressive but you get "rewarded" for using one of their images and they have freebies to help you get started. Awesome! Yay! lol I'm here to show you what I found:
Close up of the extras on the image:
Glossy Accents is right behind Stickles for making pretty things prettier! ;)
I'd like to add this card into these challenges:
Doodle Pantry Challenge Blog: Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #45 (freebie image with sentiment! The newest "progressive" challenge I found!)
They've got a sketch I just fell in love with! I may use it again and again!
I am a follower of these blogs. The blog layout I use does not allow me to list challenges on a sidebar. Instead, I display badges and / or links here.
Here's the sketch:
Here is my recipe:
Colored image with Copic markers:
Browns: E77, E47, E35
Grays: C7, C5, C3
Reds: RV69, R37. R29
Greens: G28, G17, G05
I fussy cut the image and then laid it on a mat cut with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circles SM die
Extras: Glossy Accents on the cherries and leaves
Printed and textured card stock: Hobby Lobby's The Paper Studio - Rooster Farm Fresh (mats)
Printed card stock: Michael's Recollections - Rooster Provincial (background)
Black and white card stock and ribbon from my stash
Pebbles, Inc. chalk in red 

I read an article back in 2006 about stamping sentiments... with REAL alphabet stamps. lol The reason the article caught my eye was because it was about keeping the sentiment straight. Well, eight years later and I'm STILL struggling with that! Anyway, the writer wrote that if keeping a straight line was impossible to just go for the crooked look and then highlight the crooked word with color to make it important or stand out so the sentiment would appear to have been MEANT to be crooked. I thought this was a fantastic idea and since then have implemented the technique. If I could remember who wrote the article and where I read it, I'd tell you here for sure but I cannot. It was EIGHT years ago! I didn't save the article either... just filed the idea in my head. In this case, I just wanted to draw attention to "cherry" and tie it in with the red cherries on the pie... add a bit of interesting color.

I am so excited about this new "progressive" challenge I found. Really! 
I seriously need to get out more often. lol
Thanks for stopping by!

Rainboots

You know... I have GOT to stop reading Paper Playful. Really! I mean it. I keep finding progressive challenges and what can I tell you? I'm a sucker for these. :-\ I can just see myself in my old age... surrounded by paper... still coloring all the images I have... I think I could color a different image for years to come... especially... if I don't stop collecting them! Ugh! lol Don't mind me! I LOVE to exaggerate! I don't know what I would do without my progressive challenges! I just have a weakness for them. What can I say?
Today... I found another one but that's a post for a later date. Let me tell you about the one I found a couple of weeks ago. Better yet, let me show you the adorable image! I had to purchase this first one. Ouch. But it's ok... I LOVE IT! :)
Here's my card:

When is it OK?

Hi there! Welcome to my personal blog! I'm thrilled to announce I've been invited to be a recurring Guest Designer (GD) for Sherri Baldy at My Besties Challenge Blog. This is my first project. I hope you like it! 
I've used a CAS layout and one of my favorite colors, red. I also used a sketch. This is the sketch:
Here is my card:
Here is a close up of the image:
I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
I am a follower of all these blogs and display badges and / or links here.
Here is my recipe:
This is Sherri Baldy's Img 209.
Copic markers in these colors - 
Reds: RV69, R37, R27, R24
Blacks: 100, N8, N6, N4

Skin and Eyes: YR00, E00, E000, R20 and E37, E35, E33, E31

Printed card stock: Junkitz Teresa Collins {extreme} Boy
Card stock: from my stash
The sentiment on the inside reads "So long as you have the Fire Department on speed dial." and let me tell you why.

I made this card for my 26 year old daughter, Nina. Yes! I AM old enough to have a 26 year old daughter! I know! Hard to believe. ;) lol I'm just sending her a little hello card and this image made me think of a funny story.

I've always encouraged Nina to live her life however it made her happiest for as long as she could before she chose someone to settle down with and begin a family. I'm afraid some of that may have backfired. :-\ My sisters say she's being picky. I say she has every reason to be selective. She's a fabulous girl! Takes after her momma... ;) lol

I'm well known for always telling people "sounds like a plan" whenever we discuss doing something in the future. I didn't even realize it until a man I once dated quoted me and he followed it with "as she's always saying". Ssooo I started listening to myself for it... and it's true! lol

Anyway, when Nina was about 10 years old, we purchased the makings for a family BBQ. I bravely bought hickory chips. I'd NOT ever used these before and she questioned the purchase. I responded, "I think this sounds like fun and it will work out. Mommy's plans ALWAYS work out." I was a single mom her entire life. I am all of a parent's love she's ever known. So I always made my statements positive to my children. So much so, she once wrote a story about me and in it she wrote that she trusted me to always have the right answers for everything... until she turned 13... I love her honesty... :-\ ... and she wrote this when she was 15! Sixteen was the magic number... it's when I became that annoying mother who didn't know anything. :-\ Until about two years ago... Nina called me because she wanted my opinion about something... I was in awe! :)

Ssooo... anyway... we brought our purchase home and I went to start the BBQ. I read the instructions and started the chips in the grill. I didn't realize it took awhile to start smoking and I got to thinking... if a little bit is good... a lot would be better... even though the bag said... be conservative. Less is more. Yeah, right. So I threw the whole bag in. :) Once it started smoking... I realized... oops! My sister, Eva, lives across the street and at that time, we were her tenants. My son is now buying the house from her but at that time, we were her tenants. She comes racing over to see what was on fire! The neighbor comes over to check if there was a fire, too! By the time it was all over, all the neighbors around us were on their front porch to find out where the fire was at! Haha... I had the grill close to the back door and smoke entered the house. Our home smelled like hickory for weeks! In the meantime, at that moment, I was quick to think of my kids and didn't want them getting scared. I told them, "Mommy's got a plan and if it didn't work out, fire department is on speed dial!" lol

To this day... Nina will not let me live that down. :-\ She doesn't remember my talks to her about abstinence, drugs, drinking and driving but she sure does remember I had a plan and the fire department was on speed dial! :-\ Ssooo... I think she'll get a kick out of it. I'm also writing a personal note to her about my thoughts and love for her. I'm hoping to touch her heart. We shall see. By the way... she's not spoken to me since February 3rd. I read her posts on FB and can read all that's going on in her life... she hasn't thought yet to block me... I send her emails, PMs on FB, cards to her home and, until she changed her phone number and didn't give me the new one, text messages... all go unanswered. It wouldn't be so bad if I at least knew what horrible thing I said or did to deserve this treatment. The last time we spoke was about her inability to move in with her brother and me to help us out financially... temporarily... because as she put it... "When can I live my life?". My response to all this was that I completely understood. *sigh* I tell myself over and over again... this is not personal... this is no reflection on me... this is what's in her heart... but then I ask myself... did I really raise a child to be so hateful and insensitive? She's always been more than I bargained for... but what am I gonna do... I love the silly girl! :) Doesn't she know I'm not immortal? :-\

Ssooo... I kinda want to know though...
when is it OK for a parent to get angry
and respond the same way? I've had near death experiences so I weigh my words carefully before speaking to my children. I don't want the last words they hear from me to be negative. I don't want the last words they hear from me to be filled with anger and hurt... even if it was there... I imagine there would be feelings of guilt and that is not the legacy I want to leave them. Am I wrong? I am after all... an imperfect woman...

I hope you've read the post and enjoyed the card. I often like to bare my soul for bloggers to read and laugh or cry along with me. Mostly, because I believe no one really ever reads my posts. lol This is really my blank page to write a story now and then... just as my header reads. If you knew I often bare my soul, you'd know all about my heartbreaks, near death experiences, CML and seen pictures of my cellulitis. They weren't pretty! ;) lol But I shared them anyway! lol
Thanks for stopping by. Have a blessed day! :)

Thursday DT Spot at Fitztown

This is my DT-Thursday contribution for the current Challenge #31 - TOP 3 Favorites at Fitztown Challenge Blog (FCB). In case you've missed it, these are the choices:
Ribbon, Twine, Lace
Buttons, Brads, Eyelets
Flowers, Bow, Charm
You chose one item from each row. Kinda like Tic-Tac-Toe but not really. lol ;)
I had such a time with my card! lol I had selected a sketch I wanted to work with. Here, I'll show you:
The sketch is from Seems a Little Sketchy - Sketch 62. There's something missing from mine: 
I got so caught up in making sure I had one item from each row... I forgot the doily! :( It was gonna go behind the image and sentiment. Pooh! :-\ I gave some serious thought to unmounting the card and redoing the whole thing but the image is on foam tape and pops up off the card. I wasn't sure I could remove it without damaging the image. Now that I am uploading the card... I realize... I missed some fussy cutting and forgot to shade a spot or two! OMgee! Thank goodness the card is for my 93 year old mother! She'll think it's wonderful just as it is because she thinks EVERYTHING I do is wonderful. Isn't that fantastic about mothers? So... here is my card:
Here is a close up of the image:
It still came out so purdy!
:) lol What can you expect from a Morgan Fitzsimons (MF) image? Nothing but purdy for sure! This image is Valentine 12 by MF from Fitztown
