This week I will mostly be working on projects for the Stampin Out Alzheimer's website. Here is the address

I encourage you to visit the site and participate in some of the challenges. All proceeds go to the Alzheimer's association. They are also giving away fabulous prizes! My Father-in-law passed away Feb. 08 from the disease. It was very hard watching him deteriorate. I made this card for one of the challenges.

Cinemas Saturday Challenge #33-Ever After and Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge

I did this card for 2 challenges. Of course I love to do cards for the Cinema Saturday Challenge and this week was the movie Ever After. I wanted to do a card with soft colors. I loved Drew Barrymore in the beautiful butterfly dress and she had to have imagination to get the Prince! I stamped and distressed everything in Sahara Sand. I colored everything with chalks. The girl and saying are Invoke Arts. The butterflies are fontwerks and the flourish is Queen Kat Designs and the papers are Creative Memories. I added a clear butterfly from Heidi Swapp and ribbon from my stash.You were supposed to include a flourish so I put one in the bottom right corner. I had fun making this card!

Sue McMahon told me that she is a design team member for Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and invited me to try one of their sketches. This is MMSC2. There is a link to their site on my blog. Check it out, there are a lot of talented people there. Thanks for stopping by!

Cinema Saturday #31-Steel Magnolias

The movie for this week is Steel Magnolias and you were supposed to use some pink on your card. This movie is a tear jerker! I picked this stamp to use because it reminds me of a Mama Tree taking card of her baby tree or you could look at it as God looking after us. I like it in the movie when the Daryl Hanna character starts praying all the time! This card could be comforting to Shelby's friends and family. The tree stamp is Stampendous and the saying is StampinUp. The butterflies are Heidi Swapp and I added bling. Thanks for stopping by!
