Sassy Wild Flower Wed. Challenge #7 Ribbons & Flowers / CCT #105 Dimensions

Hi Everyone
 Hope this finds all doing well.  First let me start by Saying SORRY  I'm not using one of your images.  Next time promiss.  But,  Yea!!!!! I get to show off Nick's Easter Card(Hubby's) & Easter Basket that I'm sending him.  Ladies if your looking for a little SOMEN, SOMEN for your Special Someone!!!
 I know your looking at the picture thinking "BJ's Husband has been gone way tooooo Long if she thinks this is SOMEN SOMEN.  But Wait just a min. Remember you can't judge a book by it's cover.

Ok, Back to My Entry

My husband & I have a story about Daffodills. When we first were together.  He almost gave me whiplash when he stoped in the middle of the road out in the middle of no where, jumps out   of the car & takes off in this field.  So, I'm thinking "Boy he must realy have to go" but that wasn't it.  Here he comes back to the car with a handfull of Daffodills.  So when the daffodill bunny came out I had to do his card using it.  Then since he is overseas I had to put together a Easter Basket Care Package.  Complete with home made cookies.
This is my first Gate Fold card also.

TPE Challenge #59

Hi Everyone
Hope this finds all doing well.  Got the cookies done for Hubby's care package.  Still have to put the box together & get it to the post office.  Who knows when he will get it.  Any way this weeks challenge was a rough one.  I have a love hate thing with this paper.  The paper is so nice that it is hard to put something on it.  I don't know how many diff. images that I tried & then I tried using flowers & buttons but none of that was working.  So I hope that it is ok that I used brads.  Everyone have a good Easter.  Now for my entry.
Isn't She a cutie?

DCRU #31 Recipe

Hi Everyone
Yea, I get to show off this card done for our baby nephew.  This is his elephant Blue that he sleeps with.  And Ella this could be a boyfriend.
Hope this finds all doing well.  I'm going just a little crazy.  Easter will be a week early in our family.  Everyone going to Mom and Dad's this weekend.  Because the little ones have to be somewhere else for Easter Sunday.  So I just lost a week to make Easter cards.  Plus I'm trying to put together a Easter Care Package for Hubby overseas.  So the last two days on top of trying to get cards done I've added baking cookies.  So I had better get going with this entry.  I'm Back cookies had to come out.
My Entry

TPE Challenge #58 Spring

Hi Everyone
This entry has a sad story behind it.  I made it for Mom's Aunt last weekend when my parents came down for a visit. I had made her a christmas card that she was so proud of. So I had to make her a Special Easter Card. She loves,loves God so the new cross form Spellbinds was a must. Mom took card home with her to mail.  But before she could mail it her Aunt had either a heart attack or strok they aren't sure.  Then this Sun. afternoon she passed away at her home.  So this is for Aunt Dorthy We LOVE you and will Miss you!!!!!
In Memory of Aunt Dorthy

Quixotic Challenge #17 Altered Anya

Hi Everyone
Hope your all having good weekends. Thank you for all the kind comments that you have left me on my other entries. Today was day two of  SECC playoffs. Not as much fun watching by myself but Savannah is good about watching with me. 
  My cats won (Basketbasket Ball) they were playing TN. so we will see if they can pull it off again later today.  I had the game on while I worked on my entry.  I was cutting out the shells.  Had to stop that until the game was over it was getting a little dangerous trying to do both at the same time.  I can get  a little involved with the game.  But not as much as Savannah does.  She was running through the house full speed & throwing one of her toys around.  Any way managed to get through both without any injiuries.
 I got a little carried away with the shells on this one.  But I didn't like how my tub turned out so this is what it took to cover it up.   And the bubbles aren't showing up like they look in person.  I put Diamond Stickles on & they look like real bubble bath bubbles in person.Well, I had better get on to my entry. Thank You for considering my entry.  Have a good rest of the weekend.
My Entry
I Love how her tail turnd out.  I didn't realize until I was cutting her out that her tail at the end made a Heart.  Also this is the first time that I noticed that she has a shower cap on and not a headband.  In the past I've done this as a headband.

Stamp is from the Spa Collection
Copics & Prismancolor Penciles
Paper Bo Bunny & Brown Suade
Wallmart Ribbon
Shells are from Anna Griffin Decoupage I have had for a long time
Liquid Applique Covered with Diamond Stickles

DCRU #29 Bouquets of Paper

Hello Everyone
Well, we woke to fog & damp.  Reminds me of when we lived in England. 

 I'm going bonkers looking for Copic markers.  Figures the day my order arrived from Claudia 2 of my must have markers started not working so well.  I went to DCRU store but could not find what I need.  Will have to e-mail you Claudia.  I'm Claudia's problem child.
Any way I will get on with my entry.
I made this one for my girlfriend's Birthday.  When we were both at the Agency she was my boss.  So even though we both have left the Agency it still is sometimes hard not to call her my boss.  She always takes her Birthday off .  Her day is Shopping & A Spa Day.  She just found out last year that she has to be gluten free.                                                                       
  So no more cake for her. But  Thanks to Amy @ A Thousand Sheets of Paper  I did find this new release from Cookie Crumbs @ All That Scraps  Cake Time or Time for Cake. So that is how I came up with the thyme for her card.  And with this challenge it put the finishing touch on.  So without further adier !

TPE Challenge #57 Invitations / ATS Green / CCT #103 Celebrations

Hi Everyone,
Hope this finds all doing well. 
This little girl is getting around this week.  This is the card that I have made for my husband for our anniversary.  He will only get to see it via e-mail as he is still out in the field.  So I have no address to send it to.  But I think that he will be in Hawaii on our anniversary headed back to Oki.  Can't say how I feel about that. Since TPE challenge this week is for a invitation I thought that I would invite my husband to our anniversary.  Well, that is enough about that.  So let's get on to my entry.  Thank you for considering my entry. And Happy St. Patty's Day to all.

C4C#27 Challenge

Hi Everyone !
Hope this finds all doing well & that your weekend was a good one.  Mom & Dad came in Sat. & my Dad is already complaining that I'm not spending time with them.  I was in the middle of working on this entry when they got here.  So I guess that my card making will have to be put on the back burner while they are here.  But I had to get this one done.  I just got my gift package on Fri. I won from the New Release Bunny Hop.  And couldn't wait to play with all the fun things.  I've decided that this is my Easter card.  I know I'm bad but it turned out too cute I couldn't part with it.  So you know there will be a few more pictures of this one encluded in my entry.  But before I get to the details.  If anyone out there knows were I can get the material  I have used as "Basket Grass" on my card.  It comes in sheets like our paper. And when you tare it you get a fraed look.  Could you let me know, please. I love this stuff & you might as well say I used the last on this project. Thank You.

Thank You for considering my entry & have a good week!!!!
Paper Piercing Challenge Entry
Tooooo Cute, right? Stamp is a new Sweet November Stamp  from the Bunnies Collection this one is Bunny.  The small bunnies are cut out of paper from my prize.  I have to get up with Amy at A Thousand Sheets of Paper to find out about getting more.  They are just tooo cute.  But you do not want to be having allergy eyes when you are trying to cut them out. When I finley got the first one cut out that was it.  Because it drove me crazy working on it.  But the card just did not look right with just the one.  So I sucked it up & cut more.
