Muse #101, Friday Mashup! 193 & Color Throwdown #326. CTMH Happy Birds

Here's what I made quite last night (so it's not perfect!) to play along with Muse #101Color Throwdown #326 & Friday Mashup! 193 even though it was too late to link up at FM193 I just thought it was a great challenge. Boy it's been a while since I have combined so many challenges. 
The flower & feather stamps are from the CTMH Happy Birds set they're stamped in black CTMH ink. The cardstock is all CTMH - White Daisy, Topiary and Lagoon.  I embossed with the chevron embossing folder & colored with ShinHan Twin Touch markers from CTMH and available on my site also. 

CTMH Heartstrings & Cricut Artfully Sent

We made layouts for January & February in my hostess club this month.  You can see the other one here.  The stamp set is this months Stamp of the Month check out more about CTMH Stamp of the Month here on my site.

I made this card to play along over at Mojo Monday.  Miracles never cease - I'm doing it on the first day of the challenge instead of the last! Thank you very much Mr. King - since I had the day off :) 

Almost everything I used can be purchased on my CTMH site:

Cricut Artfully Sent Cartridge
Chevron Embossing Folder
Extra Thick Flaxen Twine
Red Enamel Hearts

White Daisy, Ponderosa Pine & Indian Corn Blue cardstock
And the oh so cute Timely Tidings stamp set - it's only $2.95! 

I made my own little mask for the cloud and to brighten it up a bit I colored it in with a Sakura White Gel and Pearl Glaze pen and the Black Glaze for the eyes and nose. I will probably do something to the inside but for now I was just excited to get it uploaded.

CTMH Hopscotch Paper Kit and Cricut Artfully Sent

Well hello there!  How's 2015 been for you so far?  It's flown by for me just like all the other months seem to and yes I did already break my resolutions however hopefully it's only a temporary break.  So how are your resolutions going?

I had a wonderful day with my downline this morning, my family this afternoon/evening and now I'm listening to the "Rat Pack" relaxing and playing.  What a great day!! Oh and yes I'm a little young for the Rat Pack but I like to mix up my music. 

Here's a card I made as a make & take for our unit meeting a couple months ago and thought I posted it already but sure enough I was wrong so here it is -  

All CTMH and available on my website-

Hopscotch Workshop on the Go

Wishing you the BEST year EVER!


It was 12:39 before I realized 2015 was already here, I hope you had a great time doing something you really enjoyed with family & or friends :) the time on my blog said an hour earlier, but for some reason it's not reflecting the correct time zone.  Maybe it just doesn't recognize that AZ doesn't observe daylight savings. 

I got busy looking at photos, picking out what I wanted to print etc and time completely got away from me.  It was a snowy day here so I thought this card would be appropriate for how the new year blew in here in my neck of the woods.  

Here's what I used, everything is Close to My Heart and available on my website:

     Cricut Artbooking Cartridge
     Snowhaven Paper Packet
     Cranberry Ink
     Dot Embossing Folder
     Timely Tidings Stamp Set
     Red Sparkles (discontinued)

Here's the view from my front porch this evening I think I brought the snow home with me from my Colorado/Utah Christmas visits.
