Yep, it's that time again...tomorrow night is my monthy night out with my crafty girlfriends and I am in much need of it :)! Okay, so this months challenge out to us was to create something outside your comfort zone...to step outside your usual colors and comfort zone with some stamps you might have. Anyways, I wanted to do this cute little box...as I am not really into making boxes unless of course one of our gals (like Yvonne, Deborah, Kim, or Julie) does a project night and we make one.

I came across this neat tutorial on the blog called "Under the Inkfluence", it was pretty easy to do and fun :)! So here is what I came up with, the first picture is of the outside of the card and the second picture is what I did for the inside of the card. I had a bit of trouble coming up with what to do for the inside of the card...dunno why it was hard to come up with!!

Please head on over to the Impression Obsession blog to see the the details on the "Fall Colors" challenge, and here is the card I created for this challenge. Let me tell you that these colors are outside of my usual selection of color cardstock that I would choose, but had fun doing this challenge. Am very happy with how this card turned out :)!

Better hurry on over to "Creating from the Heart" blog, as they are giving away a ton of stuff like:
Yep, you read it correctly...over at the blog called "Crafty Goings On" they are having a Copic Marker giveaway and it is one of the larger sets they are giving away as well. Head on over to check out what you have to do to win these beauties :)! Here is my card for their "Coloring Challenge", I used SU markers to color in these season images....am happy with how this card turned out since I had no idea what direction it would go. I also used dimensionals on all the tree images, to make them stand off the page a bit...think it made the card look 100% better.
So we have had a bit of a set back, I think that is what you would call it...oh well, that's what I am going to call it :p! Our son E*, has been on his meds for about 2 months now which is SUPER :)....however about 3 weeks ago I started to see changes in him. By changes I mean him starting to slip back slowly into his own little world again, meltdowns are coming back, he is getting more irritable, he is stimming again and he is also not able to tell you as often what is bothering him. Not too sure what is going on there, his med dosage hasn't changed or anything...but luckily he has an appointment to see "dr. flip flop" in the morning. It is like we take two steps forward, to only take one to two back...

So about a month ago, I started to look at the line art on the site called Deviant Art and I came across this girl art work ( her Deviant name is Peach-chelle) that I REALLY liked. I then thought that I could use some of her images on my cards, so I sent her an e-mail telling her how much I LOVE her images and that she needs to make more. I also explained that I make my own handmade greeting cards, and would love to use her images...well, to make a long story short she was thrilled and I made her day.

Last night my dh and I decided to rent a movie, something we haven't done in awhile and so I went out to see what I could find. Well, I ended up getting this movie (which I thought would be really good since Dakota Fanning) called "Push". I do NOT recommend this movie, it was slow...a little hard to follow but in the end it just wasn't good....
Well, dunno what it was about today that I decided that I wanted to change up my blog a bit...so I set to work to :
