Several themed Challenges, one card!

Look, there is a surprise, a baby chick who wants to party because it's spring time and he is here in time for Easter! ( I am sleep deprived just go with me...)

Ive never entered a card into more then one challenge before but I was organizing my challenge list and there was many challenges that this card fit into and I see other people do it so why not the challenges I have entered are: - Glitter

Whew that was a lot and now I have to go back and link them all to my blog post. I had a lot of fun making this card i like that the little birdie is hidden and I used a brad so the egg would open and you can see inside, I personally haven't seen this anywhere so I feel pretty smart, because usually I am not so creative. This is on purple card stock but you can't really tell again they are not the greatest pictures.
Last thing, i am requesting every ones snail mail addresses which you can send via, when you get the chance please do, and type it exactly how it is to go on the envelope, I know address formatting is different in different places. have a good night/morning everyone and hopefully with all of these challenges I have entered I will do good on one, or maybe even win one!

Cute Card Thursday Challenge-104

This is my entry for the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday, it's nice to be creating again, even though stuff still isn't organized. The theme was Anniversaries however birthdays and weddings were also acceptable, I decided to make a card for my Best friend who's birthday is tomorrow.

In the picture it looks like it says 20th but in real life it does say 28th! I plan to fill the inside of the card with memories over the past year, make it like a collage, I just didn't want to do it before as this card is being entered into a challenge. Her special nickname just between us is Dolly but her real name is Tanya and my nickname is Sunni, but I'm sure you can see that on the card.
The pictures below are of a new friend we have that lives in the tree in our backyard, a raccoon! We live in the city in a very busy neighbourhood but I guess it likes our tree so that is where it sleeps during the day getting all rested up for a night of getting into garbage cans and causing other mischief!

I have two more cards made but I am having a problem getting a good enough picture of them so I will keep trying and have them up soon!

Drumroll Please.......I made a card(Our Creative Corner- Color Challenge)!!!!!!!!

I have not given everyone a chance to read my last post and already I have a new one, I'm on a roll, so if you haven't read the last one you know what to do, I just want to make sure everyone reads it and goes and visits the blog I mentioned. What blog you ask? Well read previous to find out!

I did a challenge over at Our Creative Corner, It was a color challenge, and yes it was a Challenge, the colors (Yellow, Pink, Green, Brown) are colors I would never use together but I made it work and I think it came out OK considering I haven't made a card in so long!
I would like to share a website with you that I have been having great fun with There is so much fun stuff to do with pictures, lots of fun effects, photo correction, text most of it is free, you can get a membership and pay for way more cool features which I can't do but nevertheless I am having fun with the free stuff on this site, I made my card look better then the actual picture, and I also made my brand new blog header with it. I'm still learning but the free stuff is totally worth checking out!

Coming soon...

So we are finally getting the craft room organized so I hope to have some cards up here in one or two days, I just posted some cards in the mail to some of you but I'm not telling who, it will be a surprise when you get it in your mail box! I like surprises so I'm sure you do too!

The weather has been great here in my part of Canada, warm temperatures, no snow it has been making me feel in better moods, hopefully the white stuff is gone for good!

I am sorry i haven't been posting I have been busy trying to get stuff unpacked but I do promise that this blog is going to get way better and you are going to want to hopefully put it on your morning coffee blog hop list. I am thankful for all of you, my friends that I have met (virtually of course) I wish I could meet you all in person, but you never know!

Today I want to share with you the blog of a truly amazing woman that I have never met but intend to when we eventually take our trip to the UK. Her blog and everything on it is beautiful and very inspiring, its the type of stuff that makes your jaw drop to the floor, I have mentioned before I was lucky enough to receive some of her work, and I have to tell you, shes got massive talent. Also very recently I asked for some stamped images and a few of you replied that you would send me some, She sent me a package that made me cry, along with several and I mean several stamped images, she sent me a ton of Magnolia stamps, yes the real thing, actual stamps. I just find it truly amazing the heart that she has to send me what she did, I can't believe the generosity to someone that she hasn't even met, really am I that special? She sure made me feel that way.

When I am straightened out with my craft room and health permitting I plan to show you who I am as well, I love putting smiles on other peoples faces and I think that is what is going to make me better and getting my life on track and that is doing what i am here to do and that is make a difference in someone else's life, I have big dreams in my life to make changes in others lives and that is what gets me through the day!

Hope the weather is nice where you are, Good night/Morning everyone!

What do you think?

I still haven't had time to sit down and make a card and I am seriously going through withdrawal, soon as the craft room is organized and I can get to the boxes of stuff I will create! Trying to find inspiration for some of my other hobbies as well, I love working on my art journal, and I will maybe post some pics of that another day.

On an exciting note I cooked Supper for my family for the first time ever tonight and it was horrible! It was called Chicken Strata, I don't know what I did wrong, I followed a recipe but i tell ya....eww

I am going through Olympic withdrawal as well, absolutely love watching them and now they are over = (

I really like the picture I previously posted of my Niece with the airplane so I struck the same pose hopefully soon we will have time to go down to the Airport soon and do some more plane spotting and i can try to think of some cool picture ideas!
I want to try to post a video on my blog of my wedding in Cuba as well as other pictures that I compiled with music. It's a DVD that I put together for everyone that couldn't make it to our wedding (which was everyone) Its a mixture of video clips and pictures, with music featuring the wedding, our swim with the dolphins which was absolutely hilarious and other pictures. I need your opinion would you like to see this? If so I will try to post it. I like sharing positive things, especially because some of my posts are not to positive, so i need your input! have a good night everyone!!

That is my biggest regret.
