Pink & Cream at Wild Orchid Challenge

 
Happy Monday, Everyone!! I hope that you have had a great weekend and are ready for a splendid week! We had a weekend of sunshine and that was enough to make me very happy!!!
 
Today is the first day of this fortnight's challenge at Wild Orchid Challenge and what a lovely challenge it is!! This time the challenge is to use Pink and Cream, one of my faborite combinations, and as always there is a great prize for some lucky participant. Please come on over and join in with us this time--we would love to see your pink and white creations!
 
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting and the DP is from the Parisian Dreams paper pad designed by Jenny Ellory. The sweet image is from the New Bildmalarna collection and is called Rain. She was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a touch of Prisma Glitter to the falling rain drops. Most of the embellishments are new products at Wild Orchid Crafts: Tuscany Rose, Bead Berry Sprays, Spiral Stamens, and White Net Lace. I have also used some other products from WOC: Vintage Seam Binding, Rose Cabochon, and Heart Shape Flat Back Pearls. The only other addition is a chipboard clock treated with a Frantage bath.
 
For those of you who didn't see this on Facebook, I wanted to share with you all something that really touched my heart. Connor, the darling 8 year old son of my Zumba instructor plays baseball for a AAA Western Carolina Angels team and was allowed to select a name for the back of his breast cancer jersey...and he selected ME!!!!
 

 
This is the sweetest and kindest gesture for me, Sweet Connor, and I am so humbled that you thought of me and honored me in this way!!!!
 
 
 
Can you see my excitement to be at his first tounament wearing MY jersey?!?!?! AND his team won the tournament this weekend and received a lovely trophy and individual championship rings!!!!!! With a team name like Angels and the names of breast cancer survivors on their backs, how could the team not win???? Thank you so much, Connor, and much love to you!!! From your adopted Grandma!!!!
 
Thank you all so very much for coming by today and I hope to see you again real soon! Sending BIG HUGS to all!!!

Wild Orchid Challenge and SWEET STUFF!!!!!

 
 
A very Happy Monday to each of you and I hope for you a wonderful week ahead! I trust that you all had a marvelous weekend and have been able to get in some crafting or other fun adventures!!
 
Today is the first day of the next challenge at Wild Orchid Challenge and this one should be loads of fun for everybody since the theme this time is ANYTHING GOES!!!! So just check out the requirements and come on over and show us your Anything Goes creations!!! As always you know there will be a marvelous surprise from the wonderful folks at the Wild Orchid Crafts shop!!!
 
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting and the DP is Maja Design. The darling image I have used is Li'l Bell's Snack Time from the Little Cottage Cuties Collection illustrated by the amazing Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps. The image was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding Glossy Accents to the saucer and pitcher, and Stardust Stickles to the lace trim on her dress. Almost all of the embellishments are from the Wild Orchid Crafts shop: Trellis Roses, Aster Daisies, Hip Rosebuds, Decorative Metal Corner, Divine Twine, White Net Lace, Self-Adhesive Pearls, and Heart Shape Flat Back Pearls. In addition I used some organza ribbon tied into a double flat bow to hold a teapot charm similar to the one in the image. The metal corner and the double tags were given a treatment of Frantage.
 
With that, I have some exciting news!!!!
 
Wild Orchid Crafts launched a new website yesterday and there are so many BEAUTIFUL new products as well as the old products we have come to love for our crafting needs. Here is a peek at what you will see on your next visit to the site....I couldn't wait to visit and purchase some of the gorgeous orchids and other crafting items!!!!!

Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF!!

 
 
Happy day to everyone!!! I hope that you are all having a delightful weekend and are enjoying your moments/hours of crafting. Many of you have sent me such sweet emails and notes asking why I have not been crafting as much and the answer is very simple...I just don't have the time at the moment to sit down and do much of anything. My cancer doctors gave me a very strict regimen of lots of cardio training and weight-bearing training to rid my body of the remaining chemo and radiation and to insure that my bones stay healthy and strong. I think I would much prefer to be sitting at my craft table rather than sweating, BUT I also want to live a longer healthier life...haha Those activities take most of my day. Some of you know that I am very involved with Zumba classes for part of my cardio (averaging about 10 hours a week) and have been spending time running 2 miles almost every day. In addition, I am doing weight training and boot camp classes. I will soon be able to take on Rocky Balboa methinks...lolol...not so bad for a 66 year old cancer survivor, huh? So that's the reason I don't have many cards/projects of late but I will have some soon and will continue to offer my weekly Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF (as long as I can afford it...haha) so let's just hang in there...tougher and tougher!!! Smiles!!
 
I hope I have put together something for this week that you would like to have in your stash...so here goes....
 
 
 
20 Bunches of Mulberry Roses
1 Set of Inkadinkado An Affair of the Heart Stamps
3 Sets of Making Memories Eclectic Metal Signs - Bliss, Birthday, and Moroccan Frames
