Show Me Thursday with Sassy Cheryl

Happy Hump Day! I took a nice long walk this morning to try to work on this hump growing up my backside, too many winter munchies were the cause of that hump!
It's been a long time since I've participated in the Sassy Cheryl Show Me Thursday Challenge so, this is what I've got to show.......remember the old Sesame Street of these things aren't like the others? well..................'nough said. Be sure to click on the pictures to get a bigger rendition. Pop on over to Sassy Cheryl's and show what you've been working on.

Sassy Cheryl Challenge, My First Tole Painting Project and Fun With The Camera

Helloooooooo glorious sunshine oh how I love you!!!!!! Oh, hello, yes I love you too, thanks so much for stopping by! I have had my hand into so many fun things this past week there just hasn't been enough hours in the day. I love fun things.
First up there is a new challenge on over at the Sassy Cheryl Challenge Blog  Punches and or Dies.
 My card once again uses one of my favorite pre-colored images and my punches are the border and flowers. This card will be a Birthday card for a special girl who is turning 10 next week.

Next up is my newest hobby, Tole Painting, and this little beauty is my first project that I finished last night. It is a wooden box that I will use to hold all my brushes.
And lastly, I have been playing around with a new camera and a new editing program, so yesterday being the 8th snowstorm of the season I decided to enjoy some selfies after the storm passed and it was just, pretty out. That's all for today folks, have a great day!

Thank goodness I have my studio moved back upstairs cause I plan to hunker down in there during the storm.

I was so happy yesterday, I made 5 cards, yes, yes I did!! Hopefully this is the beginning of me coming out of my creative slump.
This morning on Pinterest I found a sweet card that I totally loved. The card was designed by Paige Dolecki at

Happy Monday and A Sassy Cheryl Challenge

Happy Monday! It's sunny but very cold in our neck of the woods! Oh how I long for Spring! It has been so long since I have participated in a challenge; I decided it was time. So, I am submitting this card to the Sassy Cheryl Challenge, It's All About Hearts. Their challenges are always fun to participate in.
I am using one of my older Sassy Cheryl pre-colored images. I pop-dotted the teddy bear and little girl for a 3-D effect but unfortunately you can't see it in this picture.
Have a great day!
