Lawnscaping Challenge #10- Guest Designer

Hey everybody! I am back today with my last card for the Lawnscaping Challenge as their Guest Designer. This has been so fun and such an honor! These ladies work extremely hard to make these challenges a success...and they are! Thanks ladies! :)
This weeks challenge is, make a project using polka dots! I love polka dots, so I loved this challenge! :)
 Our sponsor this week is Mold Muse! I bought some molds from them awhile back and I must say...those molds are Amazing and so fun to use!
The prize this week is, a $25.00 gift card from Mold Muse and a Guest Designer spot on an upcoming Lawnscaping Challenge! Great prizes!!!
 And here is my card. I made it with my niece in mind. She LOVES Chinese food and she has a birthday coming up. So I figured I would make her a card with chopsticks, money, a little take out box, made from using the Mold Muse take out molds, and off course some cute Lunar Lights stamps from Lawn Fawn! :) I think she will love it! :)
I hope you will stop by the Lawnscaping challenge blog and check out the other cards and play along with us.

Have a Blessed day!

Pendleton Place Card Project

Hey everybody! Well it's been a crazy last couple of days, with taking care of Chace and his boils! Those things are EVIL!!! Praying he gets better soon and that we never have to deal with those again!!!

Well I wanted to share a project that I was notified about. I was sent this email and I plan on sending LOTS of my cards that I have in my "box". Praise God, it was at the perfect time! I was just started to sort through them! So here is the email with all the info. I hope you will join us in this project.

Hello Ladies,

I am putting together a package of cards for the Pendleton Place, and wondered if you could possibly help me out?
I'm looking to put together a special care package for the children at Pendleton Place ( which will include an assortment of handmade cards. I'm working with one of the coordinators there, and I've offered to send in an assortment of cards for the kids to give each other for birthdays, get well, "have a nice day" kind of cards for each other, and to send to their family. It's an extremely worthwhile cause that has always been close to my heart. If you have an interest in participating, and/or could possibly post the information on your blogs, please let me know. I'm going to set the deadline for the end of May 27, 2011 to receive the cards, so there's plenty of time.

Here is my address.. feel free to send me your creations by May 27th:

Linda Johnson - "Card project"
6085 English Creek Ave

Egg Harbor Township, NJ 08234

Thanks.. look forward to hearing from you soon. I would recommend the cards are colorful, cheerful and uplifting as many of the kid have had a real difficult time in life so far in life. Please look over the website for additional information on the children's home. I would love-love-love if you could please help spread the word. An assortment of uplifting cards would be most appreciated! If you have a cute idea for another item such as book marks or something of that sort, feel free to include the item(s) and I'll send them as well.. Please include envelopes for your cards.

Many thanks.

Have a Blessed Day!

Happy Mother's Day!

This is a little late, seeing it's almost 12:00 pm! But I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Mother's Day! Here is a card I made for a publication, that wasn't picked up. I think Chace should have given me this card today. I have been doctoring 2 boils on him! They looked like bites on Wednesday, started putting medicine on them Thursday, and took him to the Dr. Friday. She said they were boils and she gave him antibiotics and told us to do warm compresses, but I don't think they are draining enough! So I will be bringing him back to the Dr. tomorrow and we are hoping they lance them! So PLEASE pray that he gets better fast and that they can give him some relief from the pain! I hate to see my babies hurt! Chace is VERY tough, so to see him has to be bad! :(

Have a Blessed night!

Lawnscaping Challenge #9 & Guest Designer

Hey everybody! I am so excited about today's post! I was very honored when I was asked to be a guest designer for the Lawnscaping Challenge. I have played in several challenge over there, and I must is SO fun! And this week is going to be a blast too! The theme for this week is Let's Party! Create any party themed project and it would be great if you would use a Lawn Fawn stamp set. The sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp! And the prizes is a $25.00 gift card! Woo Hoo! Great prize! :)
Now on to my cards. I needed to make some sample cards for a friend of mine. She is going to have her first Grandchild in June and her daughter-in-law needed some baby shower invitations. So I came up with a couple of invitations for her to choose some. And of course I wanted to try out my new Lawn Fawn Plus One stamps! So I actually made these cards before I knew what the challenge was! I love when that happens! :)

Here is the first card and it is one of them that she choose for me to do for her shower. I got the idea for this card from Paper Crafts Go To Sketches Magazine. Maile Belles made an adorable card similar to this one. Here is the front of the card inside.
And the back. Here is another one.
And another.And here is the last one that she choose for me to make for her, but I didn't use Lawn Fawn on this one. I hope you liked these and I hope you will join us over at the Lawnscaping Challenge! Stop by and see what the other designers made!

Have a Blessed day!
