My New Sweet Pea Paper!

Hello everyone! It's the weekend! Yippee! :)
I'm in the middle of cleaning up ceiling mud! Ugh! We had a kitchen fire April of last year and we had to have all the popcorn scraped off our ceilings because of toxic smoke fumes. Well, when we remodeled the kitchen, we wanted to include a built in dishwasher (I didn't have one) and more cabinet space. The kitchen was not designed very well and we had a layout that fit better. Anyway, after all this kitchen remodel, we didn't have money left over to redo the ceilings. hee! hee! I told my hubby that I'd rather have a dishwasher than pretty ceilings at the time. I'm sooooo glad we have finished those now. I can get my wall hangings back up and curtains and start having dinner parties again like we did A LOT before the fire.

Well, now that I've told you my life...let's get on to the craftiness of this post :)


This is a card I did for a few challenges...
Crafty Critters Challenge #23
**Use MoJo Sketch #130
**Use Spring colors!
**Use either flowers or a Spring image!
**You MUST tell us (on your blog!) who you sent it to and the date you mailed it!
~~Okay sketch...I got, Spring colors...I got, my flowers well I have flower buttons and I guess the stamped image could be interpreted as a flower....right? and I'll be giving this card to my mom...AWWWWWWW! :)

Next of course I'll enter it in this week's Mojo Monday challenge

And finally this week at Paper Cutz Challenges they want you to use 3 buttons and 1 ribbon.

I used my new Sweet Pea Designer Series paper stack from SU! I love the colors! The bottom 2 layers are chocolate chip c/s and taken with teal c/s. I used my new old olive satin ribbon and new SU! buttons. Yippee! I love using new products! The pearls are from Kaiser. The image is from Circle Circus stamp set.

Whew.....okay I think I got it all. Thank you so much for visiting today...you made my day!

Until next time...
Blessings...
