5 Challenges!! And beautiful weather!!!

This is a card I did today for five challenges! First I have to congratulate Karen aka RedBugDriver for she is our new Queen For A Day!! She has a gallery filled with beautiful cards to get your mojo going!! Not only is she talented but she is one of the sweetest gals on here always leaving us such heartfelt comments. We love you Karen! So I finally settled on this card to be inspired by. Enjoy your much deserved reign gf! The second challenge is Friday`s F4A53 to be inspired by the islands. I thought these flowers looked a bit tropical. The third challenge is today`s IC273 to be inspired by this gorgeous online site called Serena and Lily. I chose the Ruby Collection which was for the nursery. The card is also for this week`s  Stamp Something challenge to use flowers. I also included this in the Day`s of Our Lives gallery. I just love this paper from Graphic 45 and the new toys I used from PTI. :-) Thanks for looking and have a fantastic weekend. Our Carolina blue skies are here and it could not be any prettier!! Hope it is nice where you are!
So what are you reading? Would love to know! Peggy and I just read The Widower`s Tale by Julia Glass and enjoyed it so much we are now backing up and reading her previous novel called Three Junes.
I am also anxious to delve into a book I recently got called Inner Excavation by Liz Lamoreux. I belong to her blog and find her fascinating! Her book says Explore Your Self Through Photography, Poetry and Mixed Media. Her book is available through her website.
Another interesting book is Water Paper Paint by Heather Smith Jones. Exploring creativity with watercolor and mixed media. I highly recommend them both! Also available on or Barnes & Noble.
Have a fun filled and creative weekend!
Hi Sis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hugs, Judi

Triple Challenge Card !! Happy Monday!!

 This is a triple challenge card. First it is in honor of our Featured Stamper this week who is StampGroover! Congrats Cookie! I so love your clean style!! Your gallery is filled to the brim with sweet eye candy!! Enjoy your time in the spotlight! This card also qualifies for today`s CAS107 Challenge to make your own background. I used an embossed and torn panel for my bg. I also used a Spica Copic Clear Pen to add a bit of glitter to the embossed sections but sadly it does not show in my photo. I also included this card in the Days of Our Lives gallery as this card could be used just as a feel good card or for a special occasion. Thanks for looking! I hope you enjoy my card and your day!

Inspiration Challenge Watercolored Painting

This is the card I did (that I had already started) for today`s IC272 Challenge. Stephanie sent us to an online site called Wall TATT. I was inspired to finish my card when I found this Garden Entry Wall Decal. This reminds me of an old potting shed my Grandfather had which holds fond memories for me. Thanks for looking and have a fabulous Saturday!

Double Challenge Card! I`m Back Again!!

Hi! I just had to do today`s color challenge when I saw my dear friend Karen was hostess. You did fine girl!! You ROCK!! And I know the help Vicki gives as she has helped me!!:-) So here is my card for CC309 . I am sending this card to Sean (and I did put his name on the hearts on the card although it may be hard to see) for Teapot Tuesday . You can read his story here . I used this cute new Penny Black image. I even managed to use my dessert option although my ribbon is not wide. So Karen you need to send me a sympathy card. Hope you like it! Thanks for looking and have a great day!
