Second card for Karaoke Challenge at Meljens

Rain drops keep falling on my head... I used this digi and 3'd it and used some rhinestone hearts for the heart drops. Turned out pretty good I thought. Loving the Cuttlebug & dies too.
The sentiment is another from TLC Creations Here

Stay tuned if I can I will try to get more done I like this challenge and I have I think 3 more  part way done. Just because I had so many running through my head. And I'm trying to get some cards done for a gift package. More on that in a couple of weeks. ;-)
Have a great week!

Meljens challenge this week is...

Challenge #228 - Karaoke

I got to do two cards for this one. So much fun! Remember the old song, Ring Ring?
                                  Ring Ring telephone ring..

The phone is a digi from Meljens store. The inside sentiment is from TLC I thought they went together pretty good.
Have the other one up next! Stay tuned.

Challenge #227 - Laugh Out Loud

Challenge at Meljen's this week is LOL and she is giving a cute digi to use if you need.
Here is what I came up with.
The digi I used you can get here 
And the clover... is a very nice tutorial over at Norma's
She has some wonderful crafting she shares, go check her out.
Although I don't have the dies she used I do have a couple of daisy punches I used instead. and for the clover leaves I used an egg punch and cut them to a point. It isn't as nice as her's by a long way, but hey it worked. LOL The little bee is Fimo fingernail art and covered Meljen's digi bee except for the wing tips. I like it... And for some reason I just get tickled when I read the saying the other day. and it stuck with me and needed to be made into a card.
I have also been working on some bookmarks so stay tuned... Up next.

First have to go to town mom and I want a couple of chicks before they are gone. Araucana last for the season, buy 2 get 3 free. So maybe we can keep a couple.  also fencing the coop so the darn cat will stay out. We hope!

Why do some people think it is fine if they spam blogs? I have been getting comments for way past post and all it is is spam for them to add links to their sites or who knows what as I wont click on them and I won't post them to my blog. So if one does get by and I don't catch it PLEASE don't click on any links. I have comment moderation on just so I can keep my blog clean and spam free. Hope it works. To all who post genuine comments, Thank you for stopping by and leaving some luv. I try to read everything and look at your blogs too if you have one.
Have a Gr8 Day!!!

Meljen's Challenge #226 - School Supplies

I have been wanting to do one of these again so bad... They are fun and I just love to see what everyone can come up with. I have a couple of cookies in this box for Felix for an after school treat.
We use to bake together after school sometimes but now we live too far apart I will have to just send him some.
Nthing like waiting til the last minute and squeaking it in... But hopefully I do this time. Sssssqquueeaakkk!!!!!!
The pencil is 3D and so are the stars. It is white card spattered with paper smooches.
 And Felix being a boy I didn't want to make it bling ;-)
So very simple Paper clip added to hold the note Treat. The digi is from Meljen's Here
The box is from My Scrap Chick Here
Both of these sites have great sales and weakly freebies. Go check them out!
Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!

Lil Update

I'll keep this short and no pictures this time. I have them just wont post...
Bug- aka Little Lorna was making mac n cheese and got scalded from the knees down. Right leg is worse than left. She spent first night in hospital to manage pain.  She has 1st and 2nd degree burns and blisters. What a brave little girl though. She did real well with the Dr.'s, she said can I help so it wont hurt so much and they let her.
Mom and I have eye appointments and I will try to post something crafty soon. I have done a little bit here and there. We are in the middle of building the new balcony off mom's upstairs bedroom. And school just started again for Felix. So Busy busy....
