Happy Room Bliss!

The challenge over at Created by Hand today is"circles and connections," and over at Sew Many Challenges, anything goes! I found some funky papers to use for this one! ;) Over at Stamp Something, the challenge is to use some designer paper, some ribbon, a bow and a tag. The C.R.A.F.T challenge is to use blue and green. The Charisma Cardz challenge is going around in circles, and at Pixie Dust, it's"going round and round."



I started playing in my Happy Room today, and I'm having SO MUCH FUN working with these new Crafty Secrets images and stamps. I'd planned to do a card or two, but once I scanned all the challenges, I decided to keep going.

The fifties retro images are fabulous, and the sentiments just crack me up! So here's what I've done today. Some of the sentiments are Crafty Secrets paper scraps, and I supplemented those with others I typed myself.

Over at the Cuttlebug Challenge blog, these colours are being used along with Cuttlebug dies and embossing folders, which I used for each card. Over at City Crafter, the challenge is to do something with buttons and bows.


Over at Crazy Amigo, the challenge is "friends," and at Sunday Stamper, the challenge is "wings." Here's a card I did for a friend's birthday, glittering my goddesses wings and stamping some butterflies.


Over at Alphabet Challenge, they want to see eyelets. It's been a long time since I used those! ;) The little flowers are handmade from polymer clay. I thought they were a nice retro touch.

Over at Pile it On, challenge # 21 is "eat your veggies!" I used some designer paper from the Crafty Secrets Pastels paper pad for this one. LOVE those papers! There are quilting papers, striped and dotted papers, papers that look like old wallpaper, and the COOLEST papers that look just like a chenille bedspread my parents had on their bed!


Over at One Stop, the challenge is pearls and swirls.

Okay, that's it for today. THANKS for visiting!

Debbie was a dear friend to me. She held my "virtual" hand while my daughter was fighting Inflammatory Breast Cancer. She held my hand after I lost my daughter to this ... disease. Little did I know Debbie would be taken just 2 months after my Tina.
Debbie is with us all. Thank you for keeping her memory fresh, and spreading the word about IBC. Education is needed so badly.
