It is May 18 and by now and how many more have been informed we are in 
a palindrome of numbers thru May 19.  In other words look at this:  5-19-15.  The number
repeats itself backwards and forwards.  I found this explanation at AOL:

So here's a thing that's happening - the date will be a palindrome for nine straight days in May.
You may or may not have understood a word I just said. A palindrome is when something can be read the same way backwards and forwards. Like taco cat... or race car.

It also applies to dates, and starting on May 10th, 2015, we have 9 palindromes in a row. It only applies to the few countries who use the month/day/year format: Belize, Canada, the Federated states of Micronesia, Kenya, the Philippines, and the United States.

And we have a wonderful sponsor for you to visit and check her out.

The Prize is 3 images
Please use the Theme: Red/White/Blue - use all 3...
and join us in this fun theme.  You can use any company's digi, but please 
visit ODD BALL ART to see what they are all about!


And remember tomorrow is the last day of this palindrome!
Many hugs and have a great week!

 Today at the Outlawz Greetings Challenge, we are honoring our Mothers. 

Our Sponsor is Deedee's - Prize $15 voucher
Theme: Mother's Day. Include at least one flower
A LITTLE SOMETHING is what I chose from DEE DEE'S DIGIS.  Oh my goodness, once I put my Ranger glaze on there, it looked so good.  I love white frosting!!!  

But a big nightmare happened while I was trying to get my glaze to come out of the bottle.  NOTE: I've got my bottles all done up with this fancy smancy baby bottle tops, and I'm getting a bit of dry up in the contents even tho I followed directions perfectly.  I went to squeeze (GENTLY!) the glaze out on the 2nd of my 2 identical cards, and wallah it ALL came out and ruined my 2nd card.  Sooooooooo based on how much hard dry up goop I'm getting on my bottles using that silicone bottle nipple idea, I'm discarding it and going back to using a pin on the tops under their original covers!  What a waste I had.  And disappointment.

And a word about my creation:  the cake is actually the digi!  The beautiful sentiment about Mom's and children came from my stash of which I had not labelled.  So if you know where this digi and layout originated, please let me know.  
AND MEANWHILE - Give a MOM a hug!

SHE'S A PPINKY DOLL counting her presents at Christmas Time..........and yet she finds another one!  Oh my goodness, I am a true lover of the beautiful eyed PPINKY DOLLS and the fact that Outlawz Freebie Progressive challenge has her as their free image for this month, just means it's COLOR TIME and Christmas Cards here I go again.

Just make a project using polka dots, and
don't we all love them!

Date:  May 4, 2015
Our sponsor is:

PRIZE:  7 images!!!

And I've chosen Kitties from their wonderful selection.  My dots are on the background and on my blue pennant flags.  2 years ago a lovely kitty of mine passed on and she was white and blue - a rag-doll breed and the most lovable sweetheart that ever owned me!  the yellow kitty is another sweetheart who wandered into our life too.  I still plant flowers on all our pets' graves.  Which reminds me it's Memorial Day coming up too - my eldest brother and I usually do go to our parents graves and decorate them, but this year he may not be able to do it.  Praying we can still have one more long car ride and dinner out together!

But here's my 5 3/4 x 6 card.  Hope you like!

Come on over to OUTLAWZ GREETING CHALLENGE this week
and PUT SOME POLKA DOTS on your project!!!

Share that project with us - and inspire us!!

What a week I've had - did you ever feel like you were being totally swamped - seemed like everyday there was a new something to happen....not always good either.   But I survived.

However, I have a huge apology to make to my wonderful friends in the YOUR SCRAPBOOK PLACE BLOGSPOT CHALLENGE - ANYTHING GOES!  I had this post in draft and had not finished it as of last nite.  I always want to meet my obligations but this time I feel pretty badly.

YOUR SCRAPBOOK PLACE CHALLENGE BLOGSPOT has a wonderful sponsor this month for the theme ANYTHING GOES!  So JUST IMAGINE THAT!

This Panda Bear set is just awesome that I got from Imagine that!  One really great thing about the stamps from this store is that they come in sets where you receive both a line drawing that you can color as well as a pre-colored drawing!  How awesome is that?  It's great if you need a quick card and just want to print out beautifully colored images.  Their stamps also come with a wonderful assortment of sentiments.
Here's an awesome example of what a single digi stamp "set" comes with

For a $3.50 set you get everything seen in the photo PLUS outline images of the bears shown.  There's 2 different formats of the bears shown in color, 5 digi papers, 7 different sentiments in black and white, three sentiments in color.  It's a fabulous set for the price and so many different cards you can make with it!

Here's the scoop on DOUBLE SLIDER CARDS AND PATTERNED PAPER that I used to make the following cards.  I found the instrux on Beccy's Blog (click there)!

Now come on over to YOUR SCRAPBOOK PLACE CHALLENGE and enter our ANYTHING GOES challenge.
