Some Inspiration For The Week

Have you ever felt like your inspiration is a little on the downside and your not as motivated as usual? Well, that is why I love going to the Pink Elephant and participating in their fun challenges. It really isn't about being winning but it really gives you the motivation of a great challenge each week. I love seeing all the creativity and those gals sure have it there.
I am so happy to have found this great place of sharing and creating.
I cant believe they are on the 12 challenge already. This is the card I made using this weeks scetch. I started out the week without a ounce of motivation but after seeing all the beautiful cards over there this is what I came up with.
Thanks for looking and please feel free to comment. Dont forget to stop by The Pink Elephant and look at everyones great challenge for the week.

Digishack Grand Opening

Wow! a wonderful new site just opened up today called the Digishack. They are having a 50% off for today only on all their cute Digi Images. I bought three of them and then there is this freebie of the Cherry Blossoms. This card was made for their challenge using the above sketch.. You must use the blossoms and some variation of the sketch.

The challenge goes until midnight April 21 and of course you could win 5 free images.That sounds good to me!
I know this is going to be one of my very favorite places to visit and of course spend money.
Go on over and check it out. Cute! Cute! Cute!

Another Challenge

Today was a good day to craft a card I needed for a friend, so thought I would also use it for the # 10 challenge over at the Pink Elephant. The theme this week is Colors... Pink, Green and Yellow.
I don't usually work with these colors so it was a big challenge for me. I have also been wanting to do some cards with different birds so thought this would be a good start for that too.

Thanks for looking and would love for you to leave some feedback on what you think.

Large Yummy Cupcake

I wanted to share with you one of those really large cupcakes that seem to be a big hit lately.I have seen these pans and some real cute cakes over the internet. I do think this one is the prettiest ever.Of course,I am a little partial as it was made by a very dear friend who brought this it over for Easter. I was so amazed at just how pretty it is in person.The picture does not even do it justice. It's made with chocolate cake and pink yummy frosting inside.I will tell you it was sure hard to cut it. Didn't want to ruin it but knew it wasn't going to sit there and look pretty forever.
I have always wanted to do one of these cakes but I knowI could never make one as pretty and this one. Think I need another piece so better go get it. yum!

Blue Butterfly

I guess it's been awhile since I have blogged anything at all. It seems like spring has really got a hold of me as it is so nice to be outside doing little things in the yard and getting ready for a very hot summer that will be here shortly. It won't be long and it will be pool time and very little craft time.
The spring has brought us a 90 degree day so I stayed in and made this card for the Pink Elephant Challenge. I can't believe they are already on #9. The challenge is to use punches, stamps and embossing. I do believe I have a few more things going on as sometimes I dont know when to quit. I have a tendacy to fill up those cards..... I sure hope I didn't on this one.

This is also one of the cards I have have been making for a butterfly card swap over at PC Crafters so thought I would add this one in for the challenge.I have made a few and not sure what ones to do the swap with.Mightto have to keep making more until I figure it out
I hope you all Have a very blessed Easter.
