Hope Floats

Back today with a bit of inspiration for you From Imagine That Digistamp.  Living here in PA.  I have the pleasure of seeing beautiful hot air balloons in the sky as soon as the weather turns nice.   Right down the road from me....could be at least 20 miles, lol, but here that is pretty close; they have hot air balloon rides that end wherever they land.  To see that beautiful balloon floating high in the sky is magnificent.  I never have had the pleasure in the experience and not too sure that I would be comfortable up there.  

Another oldie!

Here is the card I have created with the beautiful image 
Love Lifts You.  It does come with lovely paper to match to your coloring but I decided to use Sunshine and Rain digital papers

Daydream for Summer!

Our weather here in PA. Has been absolutely lovely.  We have been having temperatures in the 60's and 70's....I am sure that it is not going to last because it is still winter.  With this warm weather I have been dreaming of summer at the beach which is why I chose to use Winnie Starfish/Sandcastle Design sheet #7 for this weeks Digi Choosday challenge blog.

Make sure you head on over to the blog and grab that discount code for all of today's purchases.  We have so many new thins that you are just going to love.  Nikky has been outdoing herself lately.

Grab those crafting supplies and join us in our challenge this week.  It is always Anything Goes but my teamies and I are always challenged in doing the challenge with a twist and as I mentioned it is to use a design sheet.  

Now...every time I print out a design sheet I always cut it out with scissors.  I do have a Silhouette Cameo that I use but I have never set the Cameo up to cut out anything such as a design sheet.  But thanks to
and her fabulous blog post 

Simply Saturday - A very quick Silhouette Tracing tutorial

I was for the first time able to print out my design sheet on my Cameo.  Now it is not perfect...but for me to be able to get the sheet cut out at all the first time trying is an accomplishment.  I am not what you would call tech savvy.  
Once I am taught and learn how to do anything on the computer I am a very big yank you goes out to Karon this week.  May I suggest that if you are looking to use your Cameo for cutting out a design sheet...Karon's Krafty Korner is the place to go!

Where the heck has February gone?  We are now into March and this week at Digi Choosday Challenge blog, my teamies and I were asked to use Lots of Green.  Not too much of a stretch becuase green is one of my favorite colors.  I know that St. Patricks Day is on March 17th but for showcasing my green I decided to celebrate with the Old Bags collection.

Feeling a Bit Green!

Huh....many people complain at feeling blue, but lately I must be dreaming of Spring because green has been my go to color lately.  My last inspiration post I posted about schools being closed because of snow.  As I write this post for this months inspiration....ironically it is snowing!  Wish mother nature would make up her mind because yesterday the temperature was 60 degrees.
The one good thing about the snow is there is nothing else better to do than to color and create.  Which reminds me there is still time to enter 

For my mid month inspiration I decided to color
Leprechaun Digi 1.  Was thinking about St. Patricks' Day when I chose this image.

See lots of green!
Image was colored with Copics.
Embellishments are from my stash.

    Hope you have your coffee in hand because we are going to take a walk down memory lane

    Ahhh....I remember growing up and smelling the brewing coffee in the kitchen.  My mom had a percalator and Sundays I would love my hard roll and butter dunked in a cup of very sweet coffee!

    Today it seems coffe is pretty expensive so I have to admit that the coffee in my cabinet depends on what is on sale.  But there is always a pot going in this house

    Brand doesn't really matter to me but I posted the maxwell house commercial because that just happens to be the coffee in the cabinet at the time.  

    Which leads me to this weeks creation.

    I chose Bugmisjjcoffee and it says it all!

    "Coffee.....a magical substance that turns "Leave me alone or die" into "Good morning Honey!"
