Kristi's Birthday Challenge

Ya know sometime tonight I decided that I decided I needed to make a card for myself. Weird right? I know but I don't feel so hot and really I would love to just be at the ocean celebrating someone's birthday, You're birthday today? Let's make it yours...just let me smell the salty air and be at that shore! Somewhere warm would be good too! So here is my card and please let me make it clear, hint hint that Kristi would love to have you come over and enter her challenge too!

Kristi's awesome card is right here and I just love her cupcake on there don't you?

Celina's Birthday Challenge~Banners!

Banners are so hot right now! Celina has a challenge for us and this is her blog spot to read further: Here is the lo she made for it too :)

This is my take on it:

Birthdays and Red Hats?

How is everyone doing with their challenges for our online crop? The month of January has just slipped right past us and now here it is almost February. Don't miss your chance to enter some of the Groovy Chick challenges because they have prizes to give away ;) Anna has a challenge for us to create a layout by showing pics with lots of people so as an example here is mine.

It's a 2 pager, I just cannot stitch it together :( but it is my youngest daughter's first birthday as we celebrated in Meadows of Dan, VA with lots of people...we just did not know any of them, lol! It was fun! The Red Hat Girls were there and a band...during the day! Those mountain folk know how to spend a word day and the pizza was yummy too! P.S. Today is my daddy's 74th birthday and he hails from Galax, right down the road from this place. Any other Blue Ridge friends out there?

Head on over to see Anna here and enter her challenge which ends January 30: and here is hers to inspire you :)

Contest, Yep, Another One! CLOSED

Would you like to be a Groovy Girl? I think everyone has a little groovy inside so here is the contest this time. Add this little button (which is not clickable)to your website or blog and leave me a link here, then you will be entered into a contest to win a Fiskars Corner Rounder and more goodies!!! It punches clean every time and is lots of fun to play with!!!

Celebrate, Celebrate with our Card Team

As we start getting ready for our Birthday Bash on January 4th we think birthday cards. The Card team chose "bling" as a theme to design their cards. Let's see what they have come up with. Interesting how Jen T and Niki_Ray both chose "celebrate" as their title word and that Peg and Nicole both chose the same colors for their cards!

I also would like to welcome back to our card team, Niki_Ray Bass! Welcome Home!
