Jason and I had a fabulous time at So You Think You Can Dance! What a great show! It was 3 hours long! WOW!!

Alexa is sounding better! Got some more cards in and will post thank you’s later. Thanks for the concern. And thanks for some of the medical advice. I didnt know she needed extra fluids when taking Mucinex! And yes I do the chest PT on her all the time! But if I hadnt known about that it would be a great piece of info to pass onto other parents. We actually have a cushioned oxygen mask we use to make it much easier!

Thanks for willing me better. I fell a little better and got LOTS of stuff done yesterday! Still need to call the dentist but Im waiting till Monday. Im mentally drained by this and I need  to keep my mind clear! The mojo was in the house yesterday! Wait till you see some of the fun stuff Ill be sharing.

Now that its the end of the week know what that means?

That means today is time for the Blogger’s Challenge! I am alos posting the challenge I missed last week while Alexa was in the hospital. You can check out all the blogger challenges by clicking on the blogs in my sidebar.

This weeks was to use black and orange. I haven’t seen the other challenges yet-Ill do that later on, but figured people would mainly thing Halloween when these colors are put together-especially in October. So, I decided to do a NON Halloween themed card!

chic Chic Chicks

And Chic she is! I got the stamp at JoAnn’s LAST YEAR! It is called Chic and is by Rubber Stampede. She never saw ink before! LOL! Sad I know! But I loved it and had to have it. She was perfect for the challenge.  This card was whipped up in about 10 minutes!

The BLING was leftover from Alexa’s Princess party! LOL! All the leftover jewels (and there was alot) I get to keep and use on my cards! YEAH!! There are all sorts of shapes and sizes and you get a ton in the bag for like $2.75! DUH!! Why havent I shopped in that isle before?! I just adhered them with glue dots.

The sentiment is a library style stamper by  Memories in the Making. Its has all sorts of fun little “girly” sayings. I love you can get like 12 sentiments for a whopping $7-$8 !!!! 7 Gypsies, and EK Success has some too. Check them out in stores and some places may have them online.

I had so much fun with the challenge I made another one with NO STAMPING! (gasp!)

fishy smiles Fishy Smiles

I had a publication in Paper Crafts, and when they sent back my card they sent some AMAZING goodies to boot!

In this package were these super cute 3D glittery fish themed stickers by Joliees. How could I NOT use them!

I had this gorgeous paper by Heidi Grace, so it became my “sea”. Stuck on some stickers, and like 4 minutes later-DONE! The smile sticker I got years ago at Target! Can you tell Im a compulsive shopper yet?

Now for LAST weeks blogger’s challenge-it was to use a Spectrum Pad in your design.

So I made this card

my heart My Heart

This heart is fromBoho Blossoms.

This card is INCREDIBLY simple but I wanted to keep the focus on the detailed heart! I think its speaks for itself! LOL!

I used my Cotton Candy specturn pad, and glossy cardstock. This card took a little over 10 minutes. Not bad considering I had NO IDEA what direction this was going.

SO check in tomorrow for more fun. Its the Saturday Sketch, and World Cardmaking day!
