Chubby Witch Card

I wanted to share another fun card using Terrell Dorfeo's Chubby Witch Stamp

This is such a fabulous stamp that it doesn't need a lot of bling to dress it up; a simple web background a little accent and this fabulous stamp is all that is needed for a fabulous Halloween card!

Thanks for stopping by!

QKD - Dragonfly Stamp

Here's a card for this week: I used Jessie Barber's Dragonfly Stamp. This is such a unique stamp. I know that I didn't even come close to doing it justice but it was so much fun to play around with!

Designer Apprentice Competition

I have never been one to do anything "half-way." So, while I have been tossing the idea of going into digital design for a while now, I never committed to it. But, that has definitely changed!

I decided to enter the Designer Apprentice challenge at DSA; yes, I know that I am not a designer, I am a wanna-be. I joined in with the new group (designing less than a year) and have already completed two challenges.

The first challenge was to create a mini kit that contained at least two extracted elements: this is what I came up with.

Not too bad for my first kit ever!! You can snag this for free (doesn't that sound nice) at DSA. Just click here.

And then for the second challenge, we had to create our own "textures" and create a paper pack using at least two of those textures. I had so much fun with this challenge. Here's what I came up with.

And you can also download these: click here.

The new challenge will be up on Sunday; I can't wait to see what it is!!!

This witch is not too scary, but it so much fun! She is perfect for Halloween cards (or even layouts). And why not get the jump on those cards and start now!!!

Scheduling Time

I often have the comment ready on hand to say "I don't have time for . . ." You know the

I don't have time to exercise; I work then come home . . . (yeah, you know the rest of the excuses).

I don't have time to . .. . because I am tired, . . . (are you putting all those answers/excuses in the blanks).

But, this week it hit me that I do have time; I just need to prioritize what I do with my time, how I spend my time. So, instead of thinking about exercises and wishing I had time, my day now starts at 5:30 am (gasp)walking.

It is a great way to start the day and boy does it help me feel better as well. But this is only the physical aspects that I am working with; I need to start scheduling more time for the spiritual aspects. Prioritizing my life is the goal; I need to have my focus on Him.
