Peachy Keen Challenge

So, it was late at night, I couldn't sleep so I started blog surfing. I ended up finding Peachy Keen Stamps blog and loving it. They are doing a challenge (which helps give me ideas). The challenge was to figure out what inspires us and to use three specific colors and photos that they provided (see below).
The first thing that came to mind when they asked what inspired us was 'Family'. My family (both sides) is full of inspirational stories. I used the reflection photo as inspiration. I hope you enjoy it!!!!

A Personal Challenge

I was visiting with my family and I had a thought. **Those in my family know that I will act on these thoughts - even if they seem a little off the wall. I found that when I follow these thoughts there is usually a reason (even if I can't tell what it was right away).** I starting thinking about what a wonderful family I have. Husband, Children, Parents, Siblings, In-Laws, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and so on!!!!!!! I really don't know what I would do without them. So, the thought that came to mind was that I really need to set a goal to send a card to someone in my family once a week. Not just a card for them to give away (like I normally do), but one that is actually intended for them. So, after this thought - I acted. Here is the first one. :)

My Pink Stamper Challenge

I don't normally do these challenges, but we'll see what happens. The challenge was to use pink, green and black. This one does have all of those colors in it, but those aren't the only colors. I hope it qualifies, if not - well, it was a card I felt I needed to make. :)

I made this card after having a deep conversation with my Mom. Like all wonderful Mothers out there she always has amazing insight. After all said and done I came up with this card.

You can't really tell from this angle, but the watering can sticks out a bit farther than the sign or the flowers. I really think it turned out great. For some reason I love the thoughts that come to mind when I the word 'Grow', but my Mom loved the word, 'Faith'. (Ok, so I like them both) So needless to say I made a few cards for my Mom with the word 'Faith' instead of 'Grow'. I hope you enjoy!!!

My little sister gives a lot of my cards (so I love making them for her). She's been going to a lot of weddings, so I decided to make some especially for her. (Love you Stevie)
