Hello To All!! Hope you had a great first couple of days of December. It was great here. My husband surprised me with a gift this week of going out of town for a night to get away from reality. While we were there he had another surprise gift. A beautiful bracelet that has I with a Heart and U and between each time it's repeated there is an infinity sign in between. It's also the start of Christmas shopping and I did get some this week. My husband even spent Friday with me shopping for gifts. Thank You Tony and Happy Anniversary!!

Here is our sponsor this week with a very catchy name. My Stitch Back In Twine. This is a great etsy store to go and look through the images. She also has Pre-Colored images and some images for steampunk which is popular now. The image that I used from this store is, "Underland Caterpillar." This is an adorable Caterpillar that sits on a mushroom. The face is what caught my eye. Here is what they are giving to one lucky winner this week.

Here is "Underland Caterpillar"

Is she not a cute caterpillar? So, since she was sitting on a mushroom, I had found this paper in my stash with the other mushrooms and thought it would be a perfect fit. There were little butterflies around the mushrooms so I put some butterflies around the caterpillar. We had to make square or rectangle cards so mine is square. 5 x 5 inches. Here is the few items that I made this cute card with.

Here is the end of the post. Please visit Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and look at the other cards that our design team made for this challenge. You can also see our tutorials and enter our challenge. Hope you have a Wonderful Week and I will be back next week with a new challenge. Thank You!!

Hello!! Welcome to my blog today. Hope is all well with you. I hope you have a Wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends. I actually had all three of my children home for dinner. It's very seldom that they are here all at once. We all actually sat and watched a movie together before my one son had to leave to get his daughter. This was a memorable holiday.

As you can see from up above Limited Runs Digital Stamps is our sponsor for this week's challenge. She has a Wonderful blog and for the month of December she will be having specials on her stamps. Just check in every couple of days. She let me use this cute image called, "Christmas Tree Cupcake." I love cupcakes and Christmas also, so this was a great image to work with. My picture didn't turn out the best but the tree has shading on it. It's just really hard to tell. Let me tell you about the prize Limited Runs Digital Stamps is giving to one lucky winner.

3 Digital Stamps

I try to name all my cards so this one is "Sweet Christmas."

I hope you enjoyed my yummy cupcake. I thought the candies looked great with the image. We do get all these sweets at Christmas time. Here is how I put this card together. I found this piece of paper that had both stripes and dots so I thought it would be perfect. Added red and green cardstock in different ways to focus on the image I was using. Added the image I colored and glittered. Last but not least, added the bright candy suckers and candies. It was very easy once I had the sketch done. Here are the items I used.

Hello Everyone!! Well, we are officially in the cold  winter weather here. I'm loving the cold. I always have and probably always will. The sleet and flurries was great to see. Can't wait to see one big snow storm. 

You will like our sponsor this week. It is Star Stampz which is also called Star In My Pocket. The category that I love is the one called "Storybook And Fantasy." This is where I used an image of hers called, "Sleeping Beauty." She is absolutely beautiful just sleeping in her bed. So, when I went looking for things to make my card, I had way more than I was going to use. I just wanted to do it justice. Let me tell you the prize that Star Stampz will be giving before I show you my card.

3 Digital Stamps

Here is my card that I did name "Sleeping Beauty."

I have to say that I love this card. My grand daughter loves the Disney Princesses and this will be a beautiful card for her birthday. I'm hoping my son will keep it for her to look at when she gets older. These cards do take a lot of time to make. You can't see it but the purple paper has crowns and the saying, "Beautiful Princess." You can see it on the back. Made the frame with my Big Shot and a stencil to make the oval around the picture. Surrounded the oval with the lace and gems. Lastly I added the flowers that looked the best together. Here is where the items I used to make this card came from. 

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio
Paper -- Rainboworld by Master Piece Studios
Pink Frame -- Spellbinders (Art Nouveau: Stacy Caron Design)
Lace With Gems -- The Paper Studio (Ivory Lace With Gemstones)
Flowers -- Prima Flowers, Wild Orchid Crafts, and Hobby Lobby
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

I want to Thank You for looking at my card and reading my post. Please feel free to leave a comment even if it's one word. Also, look at the other storybook images that our Design Team made at The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. Let,s see your card with lace and gems. Hope to see you next week for our next challenge. Have a Great Week!!!

Good Morning!! Hope you had a great week. My Saturday was wonderful. My son had a Birthday Party for my Grandson. My son moved out in the country and the fall leaves on the trees were beautiful. Was a very nice ride. On the ride home we seen the most amazing sunset that we watched all the way home. Nice party and a very peaceful day.

Our wonderful sponsor for this week is our own Robyn from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More. We were able to go to the Thanksgiving section in her store and pick out one image to use for this week's challenge. Since we could make anything for Thanksgiving I chose "The Scarecrow And His Friend." I knew I had pictures of my kids when they were little and walked in a parade around the school halls. They were dressed as little Indians. I knew I wanted to make another Scrapbook Layout. So, I want to tell you what Robyn is giving to this week's winner and then show you my layout. 

3 Digital Stamps

Now here is my layout that I decided to call "Thanksgiving Parade."

I showed the kids the pictures and they didn't remember the parade or even making their Indian costumes. They are so adorable. So, I used the picture of my sons and then added the scarecrow that I had colored. Used two different papers to put behind the pictures. Added the glittered flowers, glittered pumpkins, Indians, and Pilgrims as embellishments for the rest of the page. I had ordered a 3D Thanksgiving sign for the page but I never received it in the mail in time to post my project for the challenge. I probably will added it when I get it. These are the items that I used to make this layout. 

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart & The Paper Studio
Paper -- The Paper Studio
Pilgrims & Indians -- Dress It Up
Glittered Pumpkins -- Spare Parts (The Paper Studio)
Flowers & Gems -- Hobby Lobby
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

I hope you enjoyed the layout. I did have a lot of fun making it. I always do when it's made with an image and pictures of my family. I would love to see you projects that are about Thanksgiving. So if you go to The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog add your project and you will also see the other projects that our Design Team made for their Thanksgiving project. So have fun making what you decide to do and I will be back here next week with another new challenge. Have a Wonderful Week!!

Hello to Everyone!! Hope your having a good start to your day. I can't believe today is the start of Day Light savings time. I don't know if you have to set your clocks back but here in Ohio we have to. I'm not looking forward to it being dark at 5 and 6 O'clock. It always takes me a week at least to get my body to adjust to the change and my morning routine. Well, let's see who our sponsor is this week and tell you about them.

Oddball Art Co. is our wonderful sponsor for this week's challenge. They have a really neat etsy store that has images from the very cute to the very creepy. They are all adorable and I loved working with the one I did. Oddball Art Co. let me use their digital image called "Tasha." She is a very adorable fairy reaching out to a Dragonfly. I'm excited to show you my card, so let me tell you the prize for this week's challenge of "Add More Than One Button."

3 Digital Stamps

Here is my card with "Tasha."

Is that image not adorable. I made a fancy cut on the side of the paper I printed the fairy on. I decided to use all white flowers to match the white flowers on the background paper that I used. I put white and gold buttons on the flowers to add some color but not to much. I glittered her wings and put some glitter on the flowers which is hard to see in the picture. Then added three cute little fairies which also came with glitter on their wings. I think it all fit together and is very cute. Here are the items that I used to make my card. 

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio
Paper -- K & Company
Buttons On Flowers -- My Button Jar
Variety Of White Flowers & Sprigs -- Wild Orchid Crafts
Fairies -- Dress It Up
Glitter -- Hobby Lobby

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

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 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.
