Good Day!! Hope is all well with you not matter what time it is where you are. Here is another one of my favorite challenges. Halloween Cards. This has to be my second holiday so to say in the year. I like the children all dressed up in those adorable costumes. Each year they get even more cuter. Later today I will be decorating my house. It's usually done by now but as everyone knows. Things always gets in the way. 

Our owner Robyn is sponsoring our challenge this week. I used the image "Scarecrow Sitting On Basket" for my Halloween Card, Halloween cards don't all have to be scary. They can be cute with a scarecrow and pumpkins. Pumpkins are a part of Halloween tradition for carving and eating the seeds. Robyn will be giving the lucky winner:

3 Digital Stamps

Now is My card I called "Happy Scarecrow."


This image is so adorable how could you not want to make a Halloween Card with it. It's not the traditional scary look but more of the cute side of Halloween. I used a a piece of background paper that had Happy Halloween, Trick or Treat and other sayings all over the paper. I used the green and orange papers to pop the words off the background paper and they are great colors for this holiday. Added some pumpkins and sunflowers to finish it off. Really wasn't that bad once I had my idea all planned out. Here is the simple items I used for this card. 

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio
Paper -- The Paper Studio
Font -- Chiller
Glittered Pumpkins -- La Petites 3D Stickers (The Paper Studio)
Two Top Pumpkins &Sunflowers -- Dress It Up
Lace Strip On Top -- Spellbinders (Floral Swirls Strip)

Another post is finished and it's time to go again. I hope that I gave you some inspiration for the Halloween Card that you are going go make. I can't wait to see all your entries. Of course, you want to add them to our challenge over at The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. Thanks for stopping by.

Hello to everyone who is here today. Hope all is well with you. It's been a busy week here. There was extra stuff to do because something broke or wasn't put in right. (My Son's Fault) Lots of cleaning up and then fixing it. Just isn't the week I had planned. I did plan what I was going to do everyday and I only finished Monday and Tuesday's work. Enough of me, here is our sponsor.

Pickled Potpourri is our sponsor for out "Nature" challenge. They have Digital Stamps for almost every occasion possible. They are very delicate and beautiful. You really need to check this sponsor's store. Since our challenge was for "Nature." I had the pleasure of using her digital stamp called "Beehive," So before I show you what I did with the beehive, let me share with you what they will be giving our lucky winner.

$7.00 Gift Certificate

Now here is "Beehive"

I hope you like the card. I had so much fun coloring the beehive. My mother-in-law actually had a huge one in one of her bushes that a bee keeper had to come and get it out. More honey for him. I didn't want just a yellow beehive. So since I seen the beehive and the way it looked in the bushes, I took the look from it to try and make it look like that one. I had bee paper from a Pooh collection and used it. Then I added the two beehives and all the bee's. I really think that it turned out really cute. Here is the short list of items I used.

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio
Paper -- EK Success (Classic Pooh Collection)
Bee Hives and Bee Embellishments -- Dress It Up
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

Thank You for stopping by this week to see our new challenge. I do hope that you will show us your card that is from nature. Of course, if you would like to see all our design team cards, just head on over to The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. Hope you have a fantastic week and I will see you again next Sunday.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Mine has been busy and I won't be getting a break today. It started out that we were to move some of my husband's mother things out of her house and put in storage. But my son , who lives with her, decided that he was going to move out Saturday. Big mess!! Now, oldest son decided to move today. Of all weekend's for my boys to move it just left me and my husband to move his mom's stuff alone. I'm not use to all of this work. Monday can't come fast enough.

Our great sponsor this week is Dragonsmoore, Spyder's Other Corner. I was grateful that I was given the image "Toadie's Hall." This mushroom house is so cute with the frog sitting on top of it. I have to say the frog is the most cutest part of the image but the whole image is adorable. The prize that they are giving to someone this week is 

5 Digital Stamps
The Winner's Choice 

This is a really nice prize that they are giving. 

I really hope that you like this card. I really had fun making it. I loved working with the frogs. They are adorable.I know this is a mushroom but looks like the bottom of a tree. So that's why I colored it two different colors. I added the other frogs on places where there was lily pads and I made the little squares across the bottom so I could add some more frogs. This paper was perfect for this card. It took me awhile to find it because I hadn't seen it for awhile but I did find it. Here is my list of items I used. 

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio & Core-Ordinations
Paper -- DCWV
Frog Embellishments -- Dress It Up
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

I'm at the end of another post. Thank You for stopping by to see the card that I hope inspired you. All of our design team made some cute square cards that you can see over at The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think of my card. I would love to hear from you. Need to go. I hope you all have a wonderful week!!

Here we are again for another challenge at The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. Embossing cards are fun to play with. There are so many patterns to choose from. I do hope you play along and show us your embossing cards.

Blackberry Jelly's is our sponsor this week. This is a cute little etsy store that you would want to go and look at the images. We were able to pick any image we wanted to used for our project. I just thought that this cat with the balloons was adorable. The name of this image is called, "Cat In The Box; Box With Balloons." I want to tell you about this image and what I did with it. But, I'm gonna let you know what Blackberry Jelly's is giving for this week's prize.

Digital Stamps
Blackberry Jelly's Store

Here is my Scrapbook Layout that I called, "Feather Parties."

I hope you like the Scrapbook Layout. I made this with my cat named "Feather." Since the image was a cat in a box with birthday balloons, I remembered that my daughter had a birthday where we played with our cat with hats. He actually left them on there for me to get a couple of pictures. The paper reminded me of the colors on the hat he was wearing and I had paper to match the background where I embossed dots on the balloons as a background of the pictures. I then added the embellishments and that finished the page. This one was a pretty easy layout but I love it. Here is the items I used.

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio
Oval Stencils -- Fiskars
Embossing Folder -- Cuttlebug's Dots
Embellishments -- Dress It Up
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

I want to Thank You for stopping by. It brightens my day for you to see what I have done for this week. Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog is where you will see more projects and the rules for entering our challenges. Can't see what you come up with!!

Good Morning!! Hope you are having a Wonderful Day!! I woke up to very nice weather and a pot of coffee. I'm lucky I have a Wonderful Husband who makes coffee when he is home on the weekends. Although, his birthday was yesterday he didn't act like it was. That's what happens when you get older I guess. I don't tell people my birth date so I don't have to go through it anymore. Just another day in my book.

As you can see from above that The Cutting Cafe is our sponsor for this week's challenge. Besides having digital image sets, they have cutting files for shaped cards, shaker cards and so much more. They have Digital Image Sets which one of the sets I worked on. It's called, "Wheelbarrow Deliveries." This set has two styles of wheelbarrows, pumpkins, acorns, leaves, and many more images. I used the wheelbarrow, leaves, pumpkins, and acorns from the set. I could have made many different things from this but I decided to go with a table arrangement.

Before I get to that, here is the prize that The Cutting Cafe is giving our lucky winner.

Winner's Choice

Now on to my table arrangement. I wanted to do something besides a card since our theme is anything for fall. I actually came up with this idea at 3:00 am because I couldn't sleep. I come up with a lot of ideas when I can't sleep. I used the images of the pumpkins and acorns to put at the bottom of a block that I painted, put paper on top of the block, added leaves and then the letters. The two end blocks have the image of leaves and one with a wheelbarrow. Then I added other things to make it a table arrangement. I used only four of the images that came from a set of around 11 images and 20 different sentiments. From this set you can make something for Easter, Christmas, Valentine's Day and many more. Here is everything with my arrangement.

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio
Paper -- The Paper Studio
Paint -- Americana (Georgia Clay)
Wood Blocks -- Midwest Products
Letters -- Woodpile Fun
Big Fall Leaves on Block -- Hobby Lobby
Turkey, Pumpkins, Cross, and Leaves Laying On Table -- Hobby Lobby
Farmers On Block -- Dress It Up
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

Wow, this post is longer then I thought it would be. I just wanted you to know about everything I put into the arrangement and what come with the set that I used. You will want to go to The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog to see what the design team made for their projects. When you are there read the rules of the challenge and enter. It's real easy. Thanks for stopping and feel free to leave any comments you want. Have a Wonderful Week!!!!!

Good Morning!! I'm back to tell you about the challenge of the week. This was a great theme to have. Who can not make a cute card with a puppy? My daughter brought home a puppy a month ago and she is cute but she will grow up. I wonder if she will think it's all fun when she reaches to her adulthood. I have been teaching the dog to go out and my daughter not so much. She did say she didn't realize how hard it was going to be. Wish she would of listened to her parents because this is starting to look like it's going to be my responsibility. Look who is our sponsor this week.

All Dressed Up Stamps is this weeks sponsor. I would like to thank them for the image that they let me use for my card this week. The image's name is "My Best Friend." All Dressed Up Stamps have the cutest images. They have over one hundred stamps in their store. This cute image is a little girl walking her cute little puppy. 

The winner will receive the following for winning our challenge

Winner's Choice 
2 Digital Stamps

Since this was suppose to be a card with a puppy. My image already had a cute little one with it so I made a puppy paw print on the front of the card. I colored the image and put it on the paw and then made the rest of the paw with brown paper and buttons to give it more of the puppy paw look. This was also a simple little card but I had a lot of fun with it. There is a verse on the inside to give this card to a new puppy owner. Here are the items I used: 

Cardstock -- DCWV & The Paper Studio
Font -- She Always Walk Alone
Buttons -- My Button Bucket
Colored Markers 
Colored Pencils

I hope to see all the cards with your puppies on them. Just go to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and enter those cute little puppies you have. Also, look at what the design team made with their puppies. A lot of inspiration there. Well, that's it from me this week. Enjoy what's left of today and tomorrow.

Hello To You All!! Hope the weather is nice where you are. We had a great couple of days that were really nice and no rain. I hope it will be like this next week. We are having a bonfire for our daughter and her friends for her birthday. She turns 17 Wednesday and is making me feel real old. We are actually talking about colleges already. She will be in a program her senior year where they will pay for so many credits at a college. It's starting to be a reality now.

The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog is our sponsor for this week. We are very glad that she let's us use her images to do our projects with. Robyn has many images in her store that I just love. When she gets new ones in I can't wait to use them. Here is one of my favorites "Wedding Cake." Long story but I eloped with my husband when we were very young so this cake is colored the way our flowers were. Just had to use these pictures I just found.

As you can see, I made a Scrapbook Layout. First, I need to tell you about what Robyn is giving for a prize this week. 

Winner's Choice
Digital Stamps

Here is the layout that I made this week. I called it "Wedding Day." We eloped back in 1991. Again, Long story. I used a Specialty Paper for the background and the background behind the pictures. This paper is really tricky to work with. They are not a regular cardstock and the paper stretches. I wish I would have known this before I used this paper. Trying to get things to stick to it was definitely hard. I used the wedding cake and cut off the flowers at the bottom of the image. I used pop up dots to make it a little dimensional. Used a border with flowers and rhinestones. Then added all the embellishments to the page. I think it turned out really pretty. It did bring back great memories from then. Here's where everything came from. 

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio
Specialty Embossed Paper -- The Paper Studio
Border On Side -- Jolee's Boutique (Wedding Borders)
Embellishments -- Me & My Big Ideas & Paper House
Stenciled Hearts -- Fiskars
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

I hope this gives you some inspiration for your next project. Join us for this challenge and have some fun. To see all the projects that the Design Team did just go to The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. Have a Great Week!!!
