Home Alone

My baby [blog] is now one week plus one day old. Awe, how cute, right? To celebrate this mini-milestone, I decided to participate in a whole bunch of challenges. Attaway to go, right? Yeah! I thought so too! First up is an Easter card, based on the sketch from Totally Papercrafts Challenge. Thanks Mel, for showing me how to make the flowers. :) They're adorable and the perfect asset to cards. Don't think I'll ever part with this card though...way too special (and too much work *blush*). Besides, I hate paying extra postage and with this one, I'm sure to pay that!!!

This second card is based on a couple challenges. The sketch was designed by Friday Sketchers using lots of layers. *smile. If you know me, you also know that I LOVE layers. My cards have a tendency of being 'top heavy' because of my 'layer love'. Needless to say, this sketch was right what I was looking for! Thanks! I also chose to base my card on the challenge over on the PaperPlay Challenges site where the challenge this time around is based on 'thanks or good luck'. & of course, the Dutch Dare Card Challenges site is hosting a colourinspiration challenge based on the colors of this cute little shirt.

As for allowing my creativity to flow, I also made this pistachio cheesecake (no-bake) today as a snack. It's a recipe that I'm going to file away within my 'recipes to make again' folder. Absolutely LOVED it, and so did my brothers & sisters. On the other hand, they love almost anything.

Thanks for dropping by...thanks for the challenges...thanks for the inspiration. :)
