Happy Surprises!

Wow!  I have been really blessed with surprises the last few days!  First, this project was chosen to be highlighted on the Cocoa Challenge blog!


Then, this card got me the distinction of being the Friday Mashup Maven for the week!


And finally, this card earned me Chic of the Week at JUGS!


Now here’s a card I made for Wednesday’s SCS sketch challenge, but just hadn’t posted yet:


This uses a digital stamp I found on Etsy and a sentiment from Whippersnapper’s Winter Schminter along with some BG papers.  And I actually used my Copics again!!!  I haven’t decided whether to make this a Christmas card or a birthday card for a special someone!  It sure resembles everyone bundled up around here---it’s extra cold this week!  But here’s a sunshiny smile…..had to capture it fast, as there were not many of these yesterday:


She was not a happy camper most of the day, so there weren’t too many good photo ops!  We’ll keep our fingers crossed for today! 


  1. Congrats, LeAnne. There's lots of crafty goodness here!

  3. Well happy surprises to you LeAnne ~ you deserve every bit of this LeAnne ~ ENJOY!!!! and Cassidy is adorable as usual ~ hope you have a great day with her today!

    And that last picture of your "smiley girlfriend in the hot pink, off-the-shoulder ensem" is darling. One smile can make the whole day seem happy, right!

    Looking at Cassidy' cute OshKoshB'Gosh overalls is too funny! I just got back from that store about 10 minutes ago! I had to exchange an outfit for my DGD real quick, and then got outta dodge before the masses swarmed in! Thank goodness I'm an early bird! LOL It's REALLY cold out there today and feels like s***!!

  8. I just have to tell you that I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing your grandbaby grow & change so much. She is adorable!!
