Have a Wonderful Sweet 16!

Sorry I have been MIA. School has been piling up and I just had my first Formal Dance, so it's been a little chaotic. But I am finally settled down for the weekend and I have made this wonderful little creation.

I decided to explore a little on the dark side with this card. I love the way it turned out. The way I put it is that it is "Colorfully Dark". The flower is handmade. All it takes is pages out of a book, some Nestabilites, a Brad, and some Glimmer Mists. 

I did this card for a challenge on:
Stamps: Pollycraft
Paper: Kasiercraft, AC
Other: Copics, Nestabilties, Glimmer Mist, SU! Brad, 
Crate's Papers Chipboard, Cricut, Basics Rhinestones, Old Book

Flowers and Hearts

Well, I am still ecstatic to be a part of the Some Odd Girl DT as a Odd-i-Teen! Still can't believe that I made the cut! So now I am ready to show everyone that even a teenager can make cute cards. And I got a perfect opportunity to show this with my first card for a challenge on Some Odd Girl Challenge Blog. And the challenge is....

Use at Least 3 Hearts

So I was so excited with such a fun challenge. And what a fun challenge for such cute images! So here is my take on the challenge. You can purchase this lovely little image HERE.

Some Odd-i-Teen!

Well, wanted to make a quick post while I still have internet (Computer internet connection is wigging out. Trying hard to fix it). But this quick post has a lot of good news..... LIKE......

 I had tried out to be on the Some Odd Girl DT, but wasn't accepted. BUT!!! (I love the big buts! LOL :D) I was asked to become a Odd-i-Teen!!! I was so happy!! Everyone has treated me like a part of the DT and I love Kristy (owner) and Leah (DT Coordinator), AND the other wonderful Some Odd Girl ladies. It has been a wonderful experience already.

So in case your wondering, a Odd-i-Teen is almost the same as being a Some Odd Girl, except the rules are little bent so I can fit crafting in with all my school and activities. I still get to show you all the wonderful releases, and show you some amazing challenges we will be doing.

Now, today I get to be featured on the Valentine's Day project feature for Tuesday. If you also want to see the big reveal there you can hop on over to the blog and check it out. Otherwise, I'm nice enough to show you what I have made.....

Don't you just love it!?!?!? I sure do! I love the non-traditional Valentine colors. And the image is just perfect.

This card also goes along with a few challenges:
Stamps: Some Odd Girl
Paper: My Mind's Eye, AC
Other: Copics, Nestabilties, Basics Rhinestones, Basics Pearls, Memento Inks

Little Surprise!

Who wants to see my little surprise?

So this morning I found a comment on m blog from the wonderful and very talented Heidi-Mari! She told me to hop on over to blog and see the little "something" she left me on her blog. So when I went to check it out, I found this....

This wonderful award!

So the aim for this award is to give it to 3-5 blogs you have visited that are relatively unknown and bring them to light (no blogs with thousands of followers already)
So what do I have to do?
First: Create a blog post showing your award and say you accept it.
Second : Say who gave the award and link back to them
Third : Link to 3-5 of your favorite blogs and let them know about the award

So I would like to dedicate this wonderful award to some of my favorite blogs:
