Happy Days

Hi Friends.  Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day & National Scrapbooking Day.  I've spent my weekend at home on the farm.  Nothing makes me happier : ) 

I've got 2 cards to share tonite.  The first is for CardPatterns Sketch 114:


And I used The Play Date Cafe's Challenge #80:


And now for my card:


I just love the orange, red, and white together.  All of my supplies are from May's Front Porch Kit - Fresh From The Garden.  And see that dandy stitching???  I finally got a Sew Easy!  And it really is "sew" easy!  I also used Papertrey Ink cardstock and my Fiskars scalloped punch. 

Take a look at the new Ribbon Carousel Challenge:


The challenge is to be inspired by the ribbon carousel.  I was inspired by the blue and green ribbon spools and how the colors compliment eachother perfectly:


This card is made from goodies in The Sampler Kit for May by Scrapbooking Supplies R Us.  The leaves on the paper were originally outlines and I colored them in with a teal Martha Stewart marker.  My cardstock is Papertrey Ink. 

This is a big week for me....my duck's eggs should hatch by Wednesday. 


My duck has suffered fertility problems in the past (ummmm she won't let the male duck near her!).  So our fingers are crossed that this year she may hatch ducklings.  Wish us luck!
