Off to the Races....

Well...long time no update! Stuff has been crazy around here lately....been doin' some soul searching which is GOOD...makin' new friends which is also GOOD....and well...not a whole lotta crafting! Actually..i have done crafting, but it is all for Scrapbook News and Review, which you can't see until the future issues come!
Anyways....tomorrow starts my little weekend getaway! woohoo! Hubby has been deployed since January, we haven't quite made it to halfway in his deployment yet, and I am getting a BREAK! The kids are going to visit family and I am headed to Martinsville to enjoy a weekend of pampering and racing! Hittin' the road in the morning right after I drop the kiddos at school....can't WAIT to get on the road!
When I get back I'll be sure to post some pictures and I'm hoping this trip brings me back refreshed and ready to dive back into my life! See ya next week!

2 more cards sunday crafting wasn't HALF as productive as Saturday was! I ended up getting tired and falling asleep! Here are the 2 cards I managed to get done before I was overcome by ZZZZZZZzzzzz's...!

I made this card for the following challenges:
1. The Outlawn CAS challenge for March 6
2. CPS #208
3. Card Making Mama's #16 (green!) --my second and last entry ;)

This card was made for 365 cards, day 5: winter and summer collide. This stamp just SCREAMED to be used for this challenge ;)

Spent most of today cleaning my crafty room...i made alot of progress! threw alot of junk away, which is good...soon i will have the perfect crafty haven and will be able to be MUCH more productive much more often!

Weekend Crafty Goodness!

For the first time in a while, I devoted a big chunk of time to crafting! I took over the dining room table and went to town ;) ( I had to go to dining room so I could watch the races on the BIG TV!) Now most of the projects I made, I can't post yet as they are for future issues of Scrapbook News and Review, or for upcoming challenges on Artistic Papercrating...but I do have 2 that are not for either!! I noticed that 365 cards started a new year, so I decided to go play along over there for a bit ;)

Here is my card for day 1 at 365 cards, it was a white space challenge:


This card is also for Card Makin' Mammas...their challenge was to use GREEN! (please ignore the stain on card, i had rock candy stickles on my hand and well...FAIL!)

This card is day 2 at 365 cards, the challenge was kind of fun...there were 5 prompts:
1. Favorite color---red
2. Fav design technique--distressing
3. fav embellie--flowers
4. least fav color--yellow
5. fav card size--4.25x5.5

so i used these answers to make this card:


I am also entering this card in 2 other challenge.
1. Some Odd Girl--Handmade Elements Challenge--I realize i did not use a SOG stamp, but i really wanted to enter since i made all my embellies outta Wendi Vecchi stamps ;)
2. Gingersnap creations Random Redhead challenge--Crowns

And now I think I will get back to my weekend crafty goodness...there are alot of hours left in the day!
Thanks for visiting my blog today! Anyone notice I redesigned it?? I did this one by myself, took an entire day, but I like it ;)
