Do you have any challenge ideas you would like to see? If so just let me know.
How is your weekend? I'm working so no fun for me. Oh well. I haven't been posting much because I've been in a bit of a crafting/blogging slump. I just haven't been feeling my mojo or much like doing anything. I haven't even been keeping up on my favorite blogs. I need something to get my mojo going again but I'm not sure what. I got some new stamps, but that didn't seem to do the trick. I'm sure it will pass:) Some good news though I just found out my hubby and I are going to Los Angeles in a few weeks to visit some family so that will be nice.
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by!

I filled mine with fun size MilkyWay bars. I thought it was a cute treat bag. It fit way more than I thought. I also made mine tie closed with ribbon instead of using a Velcro or magnetic closure like the tutorial uses. Make sure you check out Jen's creation for this week's challenge.
- paper by K and Company
- miscellaneous - nestabilities Labels 1 set, Fiskars Lace border punch, ribbon by Bobbie M Designs, ScorPal.

If I get a lot of responses I will also be adding some more goodies! So now you are probably wondering what you need to do. Well, it's simple just post a link on your blog about my blog candy and leave a comment on this post letting me know you did that. There will be a couple other opportunities to enter this week also. I am going to leave this open for 10 days so you have until Tuesday March 24 to enter. I will pick a winner on Wednesday March 25.
Thanks for celebrating with me!
It's a lite late, but here's this weeks fun filled Friday challenge. Jen is challenging me to make a box or gift bag. This should be fun! Something really new for me. There are a few ideas I have wanted to try out an now here's my chance.
I still haven't posted my St Patty's Day card. There have been some computer issues. Maybe it's just when I try to use it - who knows.
Well stay tuned tomorrow to see the big blog candy winner!!!! If you haven't entered yet make sure you do you have until midnight tonight.

More exciting news - if I get up to 50 responces I will add some more goodies - including a Stampin Up stamp set to the mix! So spread the word!
My fun filled Friday card will be posted as soon as my computer is running - my hubby is trying to fix a couple things on it. I had to use my iPod for this :) isn't technology great?

Can you believe it's the middle of March?!?! I don't know where time has gone. Are you getting ready for St Patrick's Day tomorrow? Today I thought I would share a card I made with one of my adorable moose cards from Sunflowers and Dragonflies. My friend Beth designed him herself - Isn't he cute?
I made this card by coloring my image with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. Then I used Martha Stewart Pattern paper, different shades of blue card stock, and my Cuttlebug Argyle embossing folder. I think he is perfect for a new baby boy!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out the adorable stamps at Sunflowers and Dragonflies.

I am actually a little Irish but I have never gone out and celebrated St Patrick's Day. This year will be my first time! Can you believe it? I must admit I am a little nervous because I am going out with my Husband and his friends and they start pretty early in the morning and go all day and night. I have to work Monday night so I hope they let me get a little sleep Tuesday morning. Wish me luck! ha ha ha... Since my birthday is this is next Sunday I have a lot of fun stuff planned this week - I guess Tuesday will be my kick off! What are your plans?

The Scor Pal is basically a plastic board with grooves in it. The top and sides are raised so you can push the paper right into the corner and get an accurate measurement. The top portion also has a ruler along it that coincides with the grooves. The grooves are spaced every half inch from ½” to 11 ½” with special grooves at 4 ¼” (your basic A2 card fold). It also has a few other grooves at commonly used measurements and places you would score to make different projects. It also comes with a bone folder and a convenient spot to store your bone folder in the upper right corner. I got a kick out of how the bone folder clicks in and springs out when you push the button to release it (oh the little things that amuse me). I always get a crisp, accurate fold when I use my Scor Pal.
The Scor Pal retails for $39.95, but always check for stores that have or accept coupons when shopping.
Make sure you check out the ScorPal site for more info. They also have many tutorials for projects you can make with your Scor Pal.

So what do you think?
Did you give this challenge a try? I would love to see it if you did.
How have all of my blog followers been? Things have been a little hectic in my household. Alot of it has to do with the economy. My husband's sister and her husband lost their jobs on the same day and my brother in law lost his job too. Now who knows who is next. Thank goodness it seems my husband and I are fine where we are, but it is still stressful. We have been trying to get things done around our house lately and finish projects we started. I hope to have my blog makeover all set by next week! So stay tuned for my new look!

My blog makeover isn't going as quickly as I would like! I ended up working overtime last week on my days off so I didn't get much done. This weekend I refuse to work any overtime! I am going to get my blog in order, stamp, and get some swaps done. Sounds fun huh?
Some good news - my studio in the basement is coming along I should have a ceiling this week! I have decided to switch to a different area of the basement with a large window so that I will have a lot of natural light during the day. I came up with some floor plans for my space as far as furniture goes. Now I just need to get to that point :) It's always nice to see a new step completed!
I promise once I get things caught up I'll be back to posting.
