Here we are again. Another amazing Sunday morning looking real nice out but still really cold. I don't know how everyone else is but I have to do things with music on. I find it relaxes me when I get stuck on something. Now the kids have me really spoiled. They showed me how to get music off of Amazon MP3. I am so loving it. It's on the computer, my MP3 player and even on a CD for the car. I'm loving the gift cards. I didn't know what to do with them but now I do. I just have to watch if I go over the limit. I have only done it twice. LOL
Now let's get to the sponsor for this week's challenge. Our wonderful sponsor this week is Wings and Willows

Isn't this an adorable card. To see more just hit the link above the picture. OK, we had the opportunity to work with Ribbon or Twine. I love working with ribbon but never have used much twine. So I ended up using ribbon. the image that I chose is called A Shady Spot. It's a really cute image with a frog and mushrooms. Then I used a  rosette ribbon around the image trying to make it look like little lily pads. I think my card has a soft kind of feel. I'm sure you are wanting to know what prize you would be working for. Here it is

Hope is all well with you as you are reading this. It's amazing that it is another Sunday again. For this being a new year it sure is going fast already. Just when I think I have things caught up, I turn around and there is more to do. I know that I'm older now (LOL) but I want to know how I did all this in my twenties with three little ones. Why is it the older you get, time seems to fly so fast? No wonder why your parents tell you to enjoy your life when you young because it's more difficult as you get older.
This week we have another great sponsor for our challenge. The sponsor is Jelly Park.
We are playing with winter cards that have snow on them. I love this theme because of the snow. Snow is my favorite thing about winter and winter is my favorite season. The image that I chose is called Snowball Girl. How can you not make a card with snow without the snowball. She is a very cute girl and was fun to work with. I'm sure you would like to see the prize for this week's challenge and let me tell you what it is.

Thank You for coming and sharing another Sunday challenge with me. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I can actually say that I did absolutely nothing yesterday. This flu that I have had has been horrible to deal with. I'm also watching my grandson two days a week for a little while to help my son out. For a three year old, he has so much energy that I just can't keep up with him. I'm not aloud to take a break. We have to be playing constantly. When one of my children are home I do get some relief. He hates to take naps so that is a battle in itself. I wouldn't trade him for the world.
This week we have a great sponsor named My Heart Pieces
Let's do some "Paper Piecing" this week for our challenge. We were able to choose an image that we liked to used for this challenge. I chose an image called Bathing Fairy. She is a beautiful fairy that I pictured her in a forest with flowers around her. Actually it reminded me of a Disney movie. LOL Let me tell you what the prize My Heart Pieces is giving

As I'm waking up this morning, there is a beautiful down fall of snow. It's one of my favorite things to watch. I could just sit in a window and watch it all day. I'm glad that this winter we are having snow because last year we had close to none. It was one of the warmest winter's we had around here. We sure are making up for it this winter.
This week our sponsor will be The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog.
