Wish BIG!

Happy Sunday! This morning I am enjoying the quiet and stillness of the house and of course my strong, delicious coffee! It is supposed to be a warm one today so figured I would sit and get some blogging done now then will head out for some yard/garden work later on. Autumn is coming very quick here in central Alberta, CANADA...the leaves are already changing, the crops are being harvested - some earlier than normal. Winter will be here soon (yay!) and ya, before you pelt me with rocks and bad words, sorry, but it's my favorite time of the year. I get some downtime and get to rest and craft more = BONUS!!! :) 

Alright - onto why you are here today....this month, over at One Crazy Stamper, the challenge is Autumn and/or Halloween. I don't do much for Halloween normally, but I did have this cutie colored up already on my desk and figured I would add some fall papers and enter him in the challenge!


This will make the perfect birthday card for my nephew, Cooper, as he loves to fish and he always wishes big! I colored this cutie from High Hopes Stamps with Copic Markers and popped up the stamped layer with some foam tape then added some glitter gumdrops. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Broken Fairy Challenge - Anything Goes w/ Fall Colors
Crafty Friends - Anything Goes
Inkspirational - Patterned Paper
Send a Smile 4 Kids - Anything 4 Kids
Pattie's Creations  - Anything Goes
Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes
Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes
Crafting by Designs - Anything Goes
Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes

Thank you all so very much for stopping in today - enjoy the rest of your day, I know I will! Cheers!

A Just for Fun Card!?!....What the what????


Welcome back to my blog everyone - yes, you read that title right - I made a "just for fun" card while I was chatting with my bestie, Leanne, last night and decided to go find some challenges to enter! It's been quite a while since I've made a card "just cuz," Usually, I am preparing projects for my DT's and getting ahead of the game :) 

This beauty is part of a card kit from Paper Sweeties, but I made it my own...I added the coffee pot/cup instead of rolled flowers and switched the location of the stamped images and put them on the right instead of the left ;) I love kits - especially when they are as uber cute as Debbies!!! 


I stamped the coffee pot and cup from the cute set But First, Coffee, colored them with Copic markers then used the matching dies to cut them out. Positioned all my goodies from the kit, glued everything down and wa-laaaaa! Done! 

I would like to share this card with the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Love to Scrap - Anything Goes
Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes
Mod Squad - The Dies' the Thing
The Crafty Addicts - Anything Goes/Use Die Cuts
