Challenge 25 - Ice Cream Social - Blog Candy Giveaway

UPDATE:  Blog Candy Give Away (8/7/2012)

I am so happy to announce the winners -

Karon Hughes
 Eileen Nig

Congratulations ladies - I will be sending your prizes soon.  

Thanks to everyone for your wonderful comments and joining in this week's challenge and candy giveaway.
Happy Tuesday Dear Ladies - It's going to be in the triple digits today - way to much heat for me.  I do know one thing - when it's hot outside I love ice cream (Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia) is my favorite.  Just thinking about it makes me want to make a quick trip to the store to stock up the freezer.  

So this weeks challenge is called "Ice Cream Social" and I sure hope you are going to join us.  I just love these images and wanted to make something a little different this week.  I made a CD holder, covered it in cardstock, added the embellishments, used Word to create the "Happy Happy Birthday" and I was done.  I thought it would make a great project to give as a gift to the birthday girl with a CD inside that has all her birthday party photographs on it.  Cute cute way to store the CD!!

So dear friends - jump in and join us at Tuesday Alchemy and I am so looking forward to seeing what each of you create.  

Our sponsors are:  Save on Crafts and When the Scrap Hits the Fan (cute cute images).

Our Spotlight Artist this week is Anabella owner of Curious Princess.  I hope you will read all about her and her shop.  You can find her information on the Tuesday Alchemy webiste. Her website is:

Have a blessed week ladies - and who knows you may be this weeks winner of my giveaway as well as with Tuesday Alchemy.  

With smiles and hugs


When the Scrap Hits the Fan Images


What is your favorite ice cream??  

Challenge rules:

1.  Leave me a comment and also mention what your favorite ice cream is and your name will be added to the drawing. 

2.  Be a follower of my blog.  

When I reach the first 10 comments I will have my sister draw a winner and the winner gets to choose which stamp set they want from the three.  I will have my sister draw another winner when there are 20 comments, and so on.  Odds are pretty good you could be the next winners.  By the way - there will be a few extra surprises for the winner/s too.

If you are the lucky winner I will send you an email.  

I have also entered my project into these wonderful challenges:     Anything Goes

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
