My VERY First DT Post for SBS!!

I am pretty excited...this is my very first project as a member of the SBS Design Team! Since I got in during the middle of the month, I missed the first challenge which was to do a wedding card and have the couple merged on the card. So, the 2nd part of the month was to do a wedding card and have the couple NOT merged on the card...I got this!!!
These images are Betty Addams and Christian Addams and they can be purchased HERE along with numerous other images in both rubber and digi formats. I did alter Christian a tiny bit so he would be more "wedding" ready...lol....to see what I did you have to go to SBS site (above) and have a look.
You should have arrived here from Kaylou's blog....if you didn't or if you didn't start from the beginning, go to the SCC blog and start from there so you don't miss anything. 
Here is my project....hope you all like it!!

Once you have been here, don't forget to go to Kelly's blog to see what she created for you!

Until later...

TSC Challenge....Metal

Ok, this challenge for The Stampin' Chef is metal. It doesn't matter what we do or what image we use as long as it has metal on it. I chose to do Abigale. She is an adorable little steampunk image that has little gears on her boots (like spurs) and I immediately knew what I wanted to do with her!!
If you like her, she can be purchased HERE as well as many other adorable images.
Here is my creation for the challenge....hope you like her as much as I do!

That's it for now so...
Until Later....

For My Big Sister.....

Cancer has no boundaries....it does not care.....it will attack the wealthiest, the poorest, the most beautiful, the most undesirable, the thinnest, the heaviest, the strongest, the weakest, strangers, and our loved ones. It is easy to think it only happens to other people...not us...not our families, but it does. We lost our Dad to cancer....I also lost an aunt, my father in law, a cousin, grandparents...and the list goes on. I had a great-niece fight and win against non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Now it wants my sister....well, cancer....YOU CAN NOT HAVE HER!!!

My sister was recently diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma...aka breast cancer. She has just underwent her surgery (2 days ago). The doctor seems very optimistic  but truthfully, we won't know anything for sure until we get the pathology reports back. The only thing I can do is be there for her....love her, hold her hand, support her, and do whatever I can emotionally and physically to let her know that, although this is happening to her, she is not going through this alone. We have a large family (I have 6 sisters and 2 brothers)...we shall rally around her....when she is weak, we will be strong....as will her husband, children, and grand-children. We will hold her up if she cannot hold herself up....we will hold her up if she just doesn't feel like holding herself up...we will fight when she is tired....we will laugh when all we want to do is cry....we will unite...and

Aside from all of that there is something I can do to give her a bright spot in her day.....I can make her a card....and I did just that. 

  (this is enlarged, but is on the inside front flap)

I love you Diane....
when you are weak, we will be strong...
lean on us....
let us carry you through this....
this is NOT just YOUR fight.
Love, Your baby sister....

Birthday Turtle...

Hi Everyone!! I have just recently joined a challenge team. This will keep me making something instead of just coloring (which I tend to do). You HAVE to go check out the images on this site...soooo cute!!!! Our challenge was "Animal Love" and I chose to do the Birthday Turtoise image. I have always loved turtles! 
Anyway, you can get this image along with other great images right HERE!!!
Without further delay I am going to share my creation (please excuse the darkness....I will re-do my photos when it is light out and re-post them here).

I colored this with Copic markers...here is the lost of colors I used: 

Until later....Happy Stampin' !!

(I really need to get better pics...
