You're My Hero

Hmmm, struggled with this one. For the Hambo Hoedown Challenge "I Need A Hero", I follwed the sketch provided and came up with this. I added Glassy Effects on the beak, feathers and feet and added my touch by using wire and jewels for the head feathers.

Freeze Frame

The temperature keeps getting lower and lower and add in the windchill factor ... brrr, it's too darn cold! Although this Miller Digi from Simply Betty is from the Valentine collection, it works well here on my frosty card! That was my inspiration for Lollipop Crafts Challenge #27 - Black, White and a pop of Color.

Mom's don't have time to be sick

This I can soooo relate to! I was off "recovering" but having a housefull of boys, I didn't find time for the recovery part ... I had to find time for the laundry, lunches, dinners, homework, pets ...heaven forbid I should lay on the couch and rest...besides, it was taken up by my husband and his "man cold!" - I had to go back to work to get some R & R!
This is my second entry for Bugaboo "Caught a Bug" Challenge and Midnight Madness Challenge #92

Get Back to Work

I'm sure this is how my co-workers felt when I was off for a week recovering from my emergency appendectomy!

Rappin' it Out

Have you ever had an idea in your head, you go as far as drawing it out but when you go to make it, it just doesn't look right?!?! Well, I spent all day on a completely different design, tried it this way and that until I gave up and pumped this one out in 20 minutes. Talk about pulling my hair out, aaahhhahahah! That's it, I have to keep it simple :)
This is my entry for Squigglefly "Making the Rounds". I cut the icing out, sparkled it, blinged it up then stuck it down w/foamies for some extra dimension.
