Made Especially For You Color Combo Challenge

Welcome back my creative friends for another weekly challenge with Made Especially For You. Today's post is bittersweet for me as this is my last challenge and post as a DT member : (  I have thoroughly enjoyed being on this DT and working with Ashley and I will miss working with all of the creative ladies I have met through this Team...BUT we can still stay in contact through our creative channels & blogs. Now on to the challenge!!

I have to tell you what a fun one to go out on...when Ashley showed us the color story for this challenge I instantly fell in love. I seriously love the colors we had to work with. Before I show you the color's my card for this week.......
And here's the color combo you get to work with.......

See..I wasn't kidding when I said the colors were FAB : )

I am seriously lovin the Botanicals Stack and the Coral Couture Stack & Card Stock Stacks from DCWV. I've been finding myself reaching for these quite a bit lately.

This yummy Honeydew twine from The Twinery works so well with this color combo.

Happy Friday & a MOM Board book

Hey everyone...sorry for not posting for a couple of days. We are in the midst of moving..YAY...and I have been busy packing in the evenings after work etc so I haven't had much time to work on new projects. So today I thought I would share a project I made last year. Since Mother's Day is coming up, I wanted to show you the board book I made for my mom last year.

She loves you know where I get

LOVE Prima flowers!!!

And one last look........

I don't remember all of the products I used on this as I made this before I started my blog and I didn't write that stuff down then. I will probably be showing you some older projects until we are fully moved...with the exception of my DT be sure to come back and see what I was up to before I started my blog.

Thanks for stopping by & have a fantastic day : )

Happy Scrappin!!

CAS-ual Fridays CFC49 Sketch Challenge

Hey everyone...I'm joining in on another fun challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays and it's a sketch of my faves.

First here's my card then I will show you the sketch...
These are some paper & fabric flowers I made awhile back for another project. I had these left over so I thought they would work perfect for this card.

Love the Fiskars Floral Flair stamp set. It's a nice mix of sentiments & flourishes.

Some scrumptious vintage seam binding in a rich chocolate brown...

Sneaky peak at the inside....

You're The Best!!!

Thanks for stopping by & checking out my lastest creation : )

Happy Scrappin!!

PSC29:All Occasion Sketch

Welcome back for another challenge with The Perfect Sentiment. Can you believe it is Wednesday already? This week is flying by and that is just fine with me : )

Super fun challenge for all of you this week..create an all occasion card using the attached sketch...which I will show you in a moment..but first up is my card for this weeks challenge...
And here's the sketch you must use on your creation for this week........
Now I have to tell you that this card is not the typcial "ScrappinAbby" type card..normally I have lots of layers/textures and I distress ink the heck out of most everything on the card...but this time I thought I would just let the stamped images/sentiments and papers speak for themselves this week. Ok I did cave and add some distress stickles but's me : )
I decided to use some stamped sentiments in place of the flowers in the sketch. I bought this set a few months back and I'm just now using it for the first time.
There were so many cute spa themed treats & images on this was hard to choose just one.

And now for some super creative inspiration from my fellow DT chicas....
