Bugaboo Dottie Yoga-Challenge #73 @TSC

 Hello! Today I'm sharing the card I made for the new challenge at Tammy's Scrapin' Corner.
This week's challenge is #73 Use a Digi.
I've chosen to use the image Dottie Yoga from our sponsor Bugaboo Digi Stamps.
Bugaboo is having a Christmas in July sale right now with 50% off storewide!
Such a great deal and a good time to stock up on all your favorite bugaboos.
I also wanted to make this card for my friend Marni. She recently traveled to Mexico to take a Yoga certification class and now she teaches yoga classes.
I might drop in on one of her classes and check it all out one day but I'm really more of a Pilates kinds of girl. Yeah, Pilates, I should start doing that again. After only 3 consecutive 20 minute Pilates sessions I already feel so much stronger. Strange how we let the things that make us feel so good get pushed to the back burner. Getting started again is always the challenge. Once I start it's easy to continue as long as nothing disrupts my routine too maybe tomorrow.
This weekend some of the kids came out for a visit and we went out for dinner at Denny's.
Kids eat free on Saturdays. Good times!
I tried to get a pic of the 5 grandkids all sitting together on the bench in the waiting area...This was the best

Have a great week!Hugs!

Tiffany Fairy-Challenge #72 @ TSC

Hi friends, today I'm sharing the card I made for challenge #72 at Tammy's Scrapin' Corner.
This week's challenge theme is Fantasy Creatures.
I'm already excited to see what creations you'll link up with.
I have used this Tiffany Fairy digi from our sponsor, Milk Coffee.
This image  was really fun to color up and I think those are the first flowers I've colored.
The paper is from Pion Design. It's fabulous for that vintage look.
The "Thank You" sentiment is a stamp from Kraftin Kimmie; I stamped and  embossed it with pewter ep.
The circle die cut is a spellbinders. I sprinkled Frantage on the corners of the papers and glittered up the fairy wings with stickles. I managed to capture a lot of glitter in a couple of the photographs. Maybe that's because the stickles were still wet when I took the pictures.

I almost didn't get my card posted on time this morning because as I sat down to blog, I turned the tv on, and as I flicked through the channels I came across the Home Shopping Channel featuring the Vitamix
 I've had my eye on that machine for a few weeks now and there it was being showcased and displayed in all it's glory. Here was my chance to own a shiny new red Vitamix with 12 easy payments. Cha Ching!
  About a month ago I replaced my Black'n Decker blender/food processor of two years with a Hamilton blender(had to buy a separate food processor too). Today as I'm making my daily green smoothie I discover that the "Low" speed button on my new Hamilton blender no longer works unless I hold it down continuously.  Really?
 I have yet to use my new food processor and I guess I never will now since I just bought the ultimate blender which is 12 machines in one. Do you own a Vitamix? What are your favorite recipes?
I'm excited to make ice cream and soup in the Vitamix.It will be a few weeks before it gets delivered.
 A few weeks ago I decided to give up gluten just because. Well...because I think the wheat is poison and toxic to us now.  I've also given up sugar since I wasn't craving it anymore due to the fact that I wasn't eating wheat. Then I decided to give up cow's milk. I've always said I could give up a lot of things but never my dairy, especially milk. Amazingly enough I've replaced it with Almond milk and actually enjoy that. I was surprised at how easy that all was. I've even dropped a couple of jean sizes. All because I gave up wheat...who knew?!

Steampunk mermiad-Challenge #69@TSC


Hi everyone! Happy Canada Day!
Today I'm sharing the card I made for the new challenge at Tammy's Scrapin' Corner.
Challenge #69
This weeks theme is Summer Fun!
I've chosen this Mermaid Steampunk from our sponsor Delicious Doodles.
I've been waiting for weeks to use this image. Two of my favorite things Mermaids, and Steampunk. Together they are fabulous!
It took a while for me to decide what colors to many possibilities.  I masked the mermaid and used spray inks to color the background sky and water.
I've added a teeny tiny metal watch gear onto the gear on her tail but it didn't really show up well in the photographs. There's a lot more color contrast on the tail than what I could capture with the camera and light that I had.
I may have gotten a little wild with the Fran-tage, because it almost covered up the metal corner piece that I altered with gold ink and a sand dollar charm
The chipboard gears are from Make It Crafty, and the paper is from Prima Art Journal.
Thanks for visiting, and join us this week with your Summer fun creations.
