A Tiddly Inks Card and Some Garden Pics

After seeing how nicely Tracy over at Tracys Treasures coloured in her image of Alice with her Stampin Up markers I had to get mine out and give it a try.  I must admit I still prefer my Prisma's.  Here is the card I created and I am entering it in the Single Layer Challenge over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog

Mulch Update

The front gardens are completely done and the backyard is about half way there.  Here are pics of our front gardens.

Saturday, June 11, 2011


My weekend is all about organizing.  I have been working on organizing all my genealogy files on my computer, this includes hundreds of pictures and files.  So far so good.  Everthing is organized under the four main surnames and then I just need to go in and organize each of those files now.  All my paper files and printed pictures are organized.  Soon it will be time to start scrapping my family history albums.

I worked in my garden this morning weeding, edging and organizing plants, getting the beds ready for the mulch that will arrive on Monday.  So far the front yard garden beds (4 in total) are 100% ready.  One of the garden beds in the backyard is ready but the smaller memory garden and the huge garden bed in the back still need a lot of work before they will be ready.  I will post pictures when everything is done. 

We are also getting ready to have a garage sale next Saturday weather permitting of course.  So there are organized piles of stuff ready to go all over my house.

I have been working on organizing my Pinterest boards (my newest addiction) My Boards Here  I love flipping through all the inspiration and I have just finised pinning all my favourite cards from my google reader.  Next I want to pin my fave layouts.

Finally I would really like to make an index of all my stamps and after watching This Video I think I now have a plan in mind.  I will share once I am finished.

My Stamps Arrived and Mo's Challenge

The stamps I posted on May 2nd about winning during Mo and Zoe's Carnival Blog Hop finished arriving this week and it didn't take me long to start playing with them, they are great.
Here is what I won.

I made these two cards using the sketch from Mo's Challenge Blog

I am entering Challenge 85 at Mo's Challenge Blog and the image I used is the Cotton Candy image from Mo's Digital Pencil  The rest of the stamps I used on both my cards are from my winnings mentioned aboved and everything is coloured with my Prisma pencils and I used the Copic clear spica pen to add the sparkle to the cotton candy.  The paper is Graphic 45 Le Cirque.

A Couple of Challenge Cards
