***Warning - Picture Heavy Post***
Hey y'all! Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. As you might have noticed, there was no post for Archiver's Crop Night Two. Turns out I went out with my hubby right after the crop last night, so you get two days worth of work in one post. Woo hoo! =D
First, I have a card for the CDAC Progressive Challenge challenge 14.
This adorable image is from A Day for Daisies. Isn't it great? I just love all of the stuffed animals. It reminds me of when I was little and had a room FULL of stuffies. It turns out I must have had babies on the brain this past weekend. A third of the cards I made were either congrats for pregnancy or welcome baby. LOL
CDAC Progressive Challenge: Round 14
This next card was created with an image from an artist I just found: Mayzy Art. I saw this image over on my blogging buddy Trina's blog, and thought it was just awesome! I had to get it immediately. Trina did a better job coloring the image, but she rocks like that. =D
The front sentiment is from Create with TLC, and the inside sentiment is from Digi Doodle Shop.
There's Magic in the Air: Less is More
My next project was inspired by this fortnight's Digistamps 4 Joy challenge: Blue Water. There's a deal going on in the Digistamps 4 Joy CDAC group that if you are a member of the group (or join), create a card for the current Blue Water challenge, link it up on the challenge blog, then link it to the group discussion you will get a free image! It's a brand new image...I haven't even seen it yet. I can't wait to see! =D
It was made with a Digistamps 4 Joy image, one of my favorites actually. I just love the fairies! I really like playing with blue, so this challenge is a blast for me. I hope y'all will play along! The sentiment is from my head. I think. I tried forever to find a good water quote, but couldn't really find anything. I decided to go with this encouragement sentiment.

Now, this next card is one of my favorites from the weekend. Sassy Studio Designs is having a DT call. I just LOVE their images, so I decided to apply. I'm really hoping it works out...wish me luck!
The image is (of course) from Sassy Studio Designs. The flower was made with Paper Blossom punches. I wish you could see the card in real life...the sparkle is just thrilling! I can't wait until someone gets pregnant, hopefully with a girl, so I can give it to them! =D
Ditzy-Craftymess: Baby or Anything Goes
Paper Sundaes: Spring Blossoms
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge: Handmade Flowers
Pixie Dust Studio: Your Favorite Things (The color pink, Fiolex Girls font, lace, lily made with Paper Blossoms punch)
Sweet Sketch Wednesday: Sketch
My final card was created for my grandma's birthday in August.
The image is from Sassy Studio Designs. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it. My grandma is a huge Wonder Woman fan, so she's going to flip. I got to use one of my favorite fonts (SF Comic Strip Shaded), so that's always fun. I'm really thrilled with how this card turned out. It took forever to make; the stars on the blue paper were originally a faded yellow/white. I wanted it to match WW's pants, so I colored every star with a white unibal pen. It took AGES, but was well worth it! =D
Whew! Ok, well that's finally it! I am so happy I was able to go to this weekend crop. We had a blast and got a lot done. Now I'm ready for sleep and to recharge my creativity. =D Thanks so much for sticking around to the end of the post and we'll be seeing you soon!
