Bubble Bed

Somewhere in this photo is my garden bench...

Snowed in family members are back in their own homes - all safe and snuggly. Two feet of snow and closed interstates resulted in extra family time!

Of course my first response to an empty house was to have husband John undo the temporary sleeping quarters in 'my bubble'. Daughter Amy and Sister Gail hadn't even made it to the interstate and the twin bed was out of the craft room, back in storage, and I was poised ready to dig in to some serious card making! Poor Gail - between the card crafting and bed - she practically had to dive into bed and close the door with her toe! Granddaughter Bailey wondered if Gail was going to get up in the night and secretly work on crafts. Between Gail's anti-craft mantra and not enough room to swing a cat - FAT CHANCE of THAT happening!

With family gone I haven't done any cleaning - I decided I deserve some bubble time!

Here is a double hitter for two challenges - Stampin B's (incorporate a candle image) and a layout challenge (C4C17) from Crazy 4 Challenges.

Sparkle Plenty

~Base card - PaperTrey Ink (edges smudged with SU Really Rust)

Christmas is over and I for one am SICK of sweets. This is my remedy for calorie free sweets! I was browsing through previous sketches at MoJo Monday and found just what I needed! I knew I wanted to use the lollipops, found a suitable background - and POOF - a card is born!

Calorie Free Sweets~Base Card white PaperTrey Ink
~Layer of orange cardstock
~Layer of DCWV Color Block Matstack
~Navy cardstock circle - with three brads
~Orange cardstock scallop

Now that I think of it...there is some pumpkin pie left over....

Another important note to self: when doubling a recipe, in addition to DOUBLE ingredients - make sure there is container large enough to HOLD it all!

You can get up close with the card by clicking on the image.
All good wishes,
