Monochromatic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hi Everyone.....
Have you ever just been sitting there and get an idea for a card and before it leaves your head, you have to run into your scrapbooking room and make it?  Well that's what happened to me.  And for some reason all my thoughts were in shades of chocolate LOL.  What a surprise.  I just thought this little chipmunk? was so cute and I love the sentiment.  I hope you like it.

Design Team Day - Video and card

Hi Everyone... Today is design team day for Our challenge was to use our favorite cartridge (not so challenging). My favorite one lately was given to me by a sweet design team member named Lisa. This video was done especially for my sweet friend, Kassidy and the card was made for my sweet friend, Carol. I hope you both like it. My video making skills need a lot of tweaking, so let me know what kind of info I'm lacking and what I can do to make it better. Input needed LOL. 
Ok...for some reason I can't add my video to this post.  Here is the url

Here is my finished card:

Happy Sunday!  How is everybody doing today?  I'm in a great mood.  I wanted to make a card that I didn't make for a challenge or have to mass produce for a swap.  This was just for fun.  I hope you like it.

Design Team Day - Masculine card

Good Morning All...
Today is design team day for InkingItUpCrazy and our challenge was to make a masculine card.  Well... this was a real challenge for me because I always want to add bows, buttons and Stickles and didn't feel like there was a place for them on a "Man Card".  So here is what I came up with.  This is my second attempt....the other one went in the trash LOL.  I hope  you like it.  Let me know whatcha think.

Go check out my other design team sisters man cards.  They are a talented bunch of ladies.  Have a great day!  Susan

DT Project

Good Morning All...

I am so blessed to be on two design teams and both have such wonderful members.  I did a 2 for 1 project for this.  I have been a little short on time and inspiration.
I'm sure some of you have seen my posts on Facebook that I've been going through a rough time with my youngest son who moved back home with some very expensive baggage.  That has now been resolved.  He got a job and has been able to move out on his own.  Now I can get back to my life.
Anyways, I'm feeling good...I feel like my mojo is back and my inspiration and good, crafty friends are great.
Here is my project:  For Inking It Up Crazy our challenge was to do a layout.  For Queen of My Craftroom we had a color challenge of chocolate brown and hot pink and this is what I came up with.  I hope you like it.
Also, Kassidy over at has a challenge on her blog for a layout.  She has Mr Linky ready for your projects. 
Here is the recipe:

Have a WONDERFUL day!  Susan
