Getting re-aquainted with challenges

With company and whatnot the last few weeks, our house has been in aboslute chaos. TOday I decided was a good day to start up with blog challenges and stuff. I feel like i got a lot accomplished :) First i had a sketch for Mojo Monday. MOJO147. Such a fun sketch :) and it doubles as my entry for the weekly inspiration challenge at Stamptv.
The second card i finished today was for the weekly sketch challenge also at stamptv.

I did a lot of paper piecing ( and a bit of stamping ) on the sailboat card which i made as an entry for The cute card thursday challenge 20 schools out. It has to be summer themed.
Ugh...i have a real love/hate relationship with this one. I had it pictured in my head but it just wasn't working out that way. ( and now that i'm looking at the clock....i think i may have missed the deadline anyway lol ).

And last but not least...
Friends of ours moved into their new house over the weekend. I made this little card for them to accompany their housewarming present :)
Anyway, thanks for checking them out. I always appreciate visits and comments. If you guys ever have any questions never hesitate to ask :)
Stay crafty :)

It's been awhile

So i've recently remodeled my craft area. I should have taken a before picture. It was in the laundry room, in the basement. My DH felt it didn't nuture any creativity so he helped move it into our dining room. Our dining room is simply too narrow to be used for that but perfect to be used for scrapping :)
These were my first two creations. The first picture is an altered canvas. I really felt i needed some wallart.
The second is a card i made for a friend visiting from mexico city. He wanted a special card that he could write a note in for his girl back home. With such a sweet could i say no????
The flower is from a stamp company called "outlines". They're so great for layering and such.
Anyway, thanks for checking out the newest projects....and hopefully my next post won't be too far away :)
Stay crafty :)
