It's me again to tell you about another challenge that The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog is having this week. Anything goes is everyone's favorite. You can add any project to win this week. Either it be a card, scrapbook layout, bookmark or any other idea you come up with for your entry. Just have fun with what ever you do. 

We have another great sponsor for this week's challenge. It is A Creative Need Digital Stamps. This is an etsy store that has a variety of different stamps for you to choose from. With the card that I made this week, she was generous to let me use the stamp "Cottage Window." I seen the window and thought about the cottages that sit back in the woods where no one can see them. I wanted to make a scrapbook layout that I usually do when we do "Anything Goes" but could not think of how to do it so here is the card I decided on. 

That's my card made with "Cottage Window." I want to let you know (before I tell you how I made the card) what the prize from A Creative Need Digital Stamps will be giving.

Winner's Choice 
3 Digital Stamps

You can get this window if you participate. So, here is how I made this cute card. I told you that I thought cottages were way back in the woods, so I found this paper of limbs of pine trees. I then made different shapes with the paper and colored the cottage window. Pretty easy. It did take more time then you would think though. Not much but here is what I used.

Paper -- DCWV

I told you it was a short list. I just couldn't find any embellishments that went with it. I do wish there was more on it. It's not like me to make something simple. Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog is where you can add your project and see all the fabulous things that the other design team members have made. This is a great place to enter a challenge. Hope to see yours here. Enjoy the week ahead and the beginning of September.

Hello on this glorious morning. Today, my husband and I are going to go and get his mother. She is going to make a brief stay up here until she gets the rest of her things packed. She just needs to get out of the house for some down time and she is not getting it there. That's because my son is living at her house and giving her grief. He will be renting the house after she moves out. I have lived with him for 23 years so I know how he can get on someones nerves.

We have Lacy Sunshine as our Sponsor for this week's challenge. Lacy Sunshine has sponsored several of our challenges and has the cutest images for you to look and chose from. She let me use her image called, "Larry Gnome - Surf's Up." He is absolutely adorable standing in the sand with is surf board in hand. Here he is with the card I made with him.

I think he turned out adorable. Here is what Lacy Sunshine is giving as her prize for this week.

3 Digital Stamps
The Winner's Choice

I loved this Gnome and thought it would be great image to make something of. I found this piece of paper of the water coming onto the sand. A perfect place for Larry to be. Since he was on sand and some water, I decided to add seashells. Added some more embellishments and made the sentiment. My favorite part of that sentiment is how I made the word "Waves" look like they are waves with the blue in the water. Here is what I used to make this simple card.

Hello to everyone!! Hope is all well with you today. I can honestly say that I had one great weekend. My grandson Hayden spent the whole weekend here. We played a lot which I'm starting to get old sitting on the floor. We took him school shopping. We have always bought his shoes since he was born. Had some take out food and watched these cartoons that was kind of weird from the ones I watched when I was little. It's Wonderful to be a Grandma!!

Toadstool Printables is our wonderful sponsor this week. Joyce has a great etsy store for you to see with a wide variety of different items. I was lucky that I was allowed to use her printable "Gnomes With Cardinal." Very cute image with the beautiful cardinal and cute little gnomes sitting in leaves. I used a piece of chipboard that has the word "Autumn" so that's what I call this card. Let's have a look;

Here is how I made my card this week. The first thing I did was color the image to see what colors I could use and find paper to match. We had to add a bow and I can honestly tell you that for some reason I just could not make one that looked good. I didn't feel right to just add a bought bow for it. So, I finally made this and put a gold glitter leaf on the middle. Then used many different Autumn flowers that are glittered and put them together with a dark orange leaf. I wanted to put the word Autumn on it but didn't want more white on the card. I was lucky and found this in a tote full of chipboard. Used Items:

Cardboard -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- DCWV
Handmade Bow -- Offrey Ribbon
Glittered Flowers --  Autumn Flowers From My Autumn Stash
Autumn Word Chipboard -- The Paper Studio
Glittered Leaves -- Dress It Up
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

This card just makes me want fall to come with the colder temperatures and beautiful fall leaves. Hope to see some Glitter and A Bow in our challenge this week. Just hop on over to The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and enter those cards. Have a Lovely Week ahead and see you at the next new challenge.

Hope all is well with you. Are you excited about the Olympics that started Friday? There are many things I like to watch plus see who gets the most gold medals. The opening ceremonies are my favorite but I totally missed them this time. I had a major migraine and missed all of it. I have looked at some highlights but that was not the same. Let's begin with the challenge

Well we have the pleasure of having Robyn sponsor our challenge from her store The Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More. As we usually do, she let us pick our own digital image from anywhere in her store. I wanted to pick out something big so you could see that I paper pieced my image. So, I picked "Rose." I wanted to make the petals separate so you could see the piecing. Here is my "Rose."

Robyn is giving one lucky winner

3 Digital Images

I made this rose into a sympathy card. I have the hardest time making these just because what it is meant for. So, I know in the future someone will be needing this card. The different kind of frames is from Sizzix Framelits. The package didn't have a name for what these shapes were called and if it did, I could find them no where. I paper pieced the rose and the leaves. I put a little lines in the leafs but don't know if you can see them. I cut every piece of the rose and then glue it on there. I then added the quote at the top and put flowers at the corner to kind of brighten it up some. The last thing I did was put an Angel on top of the flowers because I believe that your guardian Angel takes you to heaven. I will let you know where the items came from. 

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart & The Paper Studio
Red Button On Rose -- My Button Bucket
Font -- Viner Hand ITC
Quote -- Ultimate Guide To The Perfect Card
Frames -- Sizzix Framelits
Flowers -- Wild Orchid Flowers
Angel On Flowers -- Dress It Up

Thank You for reading my post again this week. I do enjoy sharing my cards and hoping you find inspiration from them. Let me see what you can do with paper piecing this week. Link them at The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog so I can see them. Our design team is also sharing their cards with paper piecing on there. These are wonderful cards. Hope you have a Wonderful Week

Hello to everyone!! Hope you had a fabulous week. Really hot here so I had to stay in most of the time. Due to a medication that I take, I can't be in direct sunlight and when I get to hot now I immediately get real sick. I use to love being outside and doing things. But if you need it to help you. You have to deal with the side effects. Let's get to this great challenge. I had so much fun with it.

This is a new sponsor we have here. Her name is Nikki Burnette and she owns The Fantasy Art Of Nikki Burnette. Her store is amazing. I'm so lucky that she let me use the image "Cheyanna Autumn Fairy." Cheyanna is a fairy that is sitting in the woods with four foxes and some butterflies. I have to say that she has talent and she lives just an 1 1/2 hours from me. I would love to take lessons from her. So here is the card I call "Forest Fairy."

Is that the prettiest fairy. I am in love with this image. Her prize that she is giving out is

3 Digital Images
(No Sets)
Of The
Winner's Choice

I really hope you find some inspiration in her. I tried a new fold called the "Twisted Easel Fold" which really wasn't that hard to do. I watched a few tutorials until I learned the technique. It is actually easier then I thought. It took me a long time to color the fairy. More time then I ever thought I would spend on one image. But she is totally worth it. I put crystal glitter glue at the bottom for the water and added a quote. Last I added wooden butterflies to the card. Here is where everything came from

Cardstock --  Close To My Heart
Paper  --  K & Company
Glitter  --  Tree House (Hobby Lobby)
Quote  --  Ultimate Guide To The Perfect Card
Wood Butterflies  --  Trimits From Wild Orchid Crafts

Thank You for stopping by to see this week's challenge. Everyone here at The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog would love to see what you make with your fairies. Then enter them in our challenge. You can't win if you don't enter. Have a Wonderful Week.

Challenges That I Have Entered

Sunday, July 24, 2016


Hello to everyone reading this. Hope is all well with you. I'm just a little sad. My daughter left Friday to go on a trip across the United States in a RV to go to California. On the way they are suppose to go see the Grand Canyon, go snorkeling, visit Disney Land for three days, and walk the board walk. There a couple of other things she will be doing but its a great opportunity for her. She went with her best friend and her mother. The sad part is they are going to be gone for 12 days and I miss her so much already. My daughter and I are close and it was hard on both of us when she left. I cried all day after I said Goodbye. I wouldn't stand in the way of this for her. She's already been to Virginia Beach with her friend and her mom is talking Hawaii next summer. Wish I had this when I was 16. Moving on to the challenge.

I am so lucky that I was allowed to use "Summertime Butterfly Bear" from Bugaboo Stamps. I just love the digital images they have in their store. There are many stamps if you are doing something with a summer theme. I made a card this week that you can use to send a message from where you are to your family back home. I always try to name my cards and layouts so here is the name for this one. "Beach Bound"

I hope you like it. I found so many things to make beach cards or layouts that it was hard to pick out what to use. I think this worked out great. So, here is the prize from Bugaboo Stamps.

$21.00 Gift Certificate

Great Prize!! Makes you want to enter our challenge!! Now on my card I used a couple of embellishments, fun paper and that great image. The circle behind the image is suppose to be a beach ball that also matches the one the bear is holding. This was a pretty simple card to make. The coloring of the image took me the longest. I just couldn't get my bear to look right. I think that it finally looks good. Here is what I used to make this adorable card

Challenge's That I Have Entered

Sunday, July 17, 2016


Good Day to everyone!! This past week has not exactly been a normal one. First, summer has come at a very fast and hot pace. My window air conditioner won't even cool down our living room like it usually does. Second, I am sending prayers to all those that are in Texas and Nice, France. It has been really sad in this world this week. Let's get to something exciting.

As you can see, this week's sponsor is our very own Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More. Robyn's was great in letting us pick our image for this challenge. She has had this image called "Angel Bear" and I wanted to work with it. I remembered that I had pictures of my daughter in a little Angel Outfit with Wings. There went the idea of another Scrapbook Layout since we had to make anything but a card. I call this layout "My Daughter, My Angel." 

This week's prize will be

3 Digital Stamps
The Winner's Choice 

On this layout I used a piece of paper that I have had for years with the Angels on it. I cut it in half and used it on the sides. I then used the pictures that my daughter was in and two of me with her. I couldn't cut myself out so they had to stay. Jelissa was 3 months old in these pictures. I took the image and made two of them with one flipped horizontally. Colored them pink and purple because that's what I loved her in at that age, Then wrote the sentiment in a Berry Rotunda font. The last thing is I added the Angel Embellishments. Here are the items

Cardstock --  Close To My Heart
Paper --  Masterpiece Studio's ( From Many Years Ago )
Glitter On Bear's Wing's --  Tree House Studio
Angel Embellishments  --  Make It Christmas ( Hobby Lobby )
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

To see more of the design teams projects just go to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. There are instructions there to tell you how to enter your project that you make this week. I hope my layout gave you some inspiration. Please leave comments so I know what you think of it. Good of Bad.
Have a Wonderful Week and the rest of your Sunday
