Happy Sunday Everyone!!

I am SOOOOOO excited today because my baby comes home. My 5yr old little sunshine has been away with my parents for 5 days and we miss her like crazy!! This isn't the first time she's been away but man, oh man, it's soooo quiet around our house and I can't wait to see her. We will be leaving to pick her up from the airport in a few hours and I can't wait!!

Yesterday I had a few hours to breate - since it was so quiet around our house - and I will share a few cards with you today (and over the next few days...)

This first card is for the Saturday Spotlight - which was to get messy!! Ripped, torn, distressed!!
And I also used the sketch from the current challenge at The Sweet Stop.

I like the monocramatic look of this distressed card.

The current OCC Challenge was to try a new technique this week. It fit right in to what I have been working on this week. I have really been wanting to try quilling and so I picked up some supplies at a local craft store. I love the look of it but I wasn't sure if I would have patience enough to pull the pieces together. But it's fun and simple. I will be revealing more quilling cards in the next few weeks. But here is the one for the OCC Challenge. I used the sketch from over at Clean and Simple : FLT
(for the next two cards)

and a close-up of the flower :

Here is another simple card using the Clean and Simple sketch and the current sticker challenge over at CAARDVARKS blog. If you've been following my blog, you know I love Penny Black images so when I saw this sticker set, I knew I had to have it!! Too cute!! Enjoy :

Cute, right??!!
Anyways, I'm going to run and spend some time with my hubby before we have to go...

Have a good afternoon!!
