Good Morning!! I know that it is early but it is a new Sunday with our new challenge of the week. The weeks seem to get faster and faster with school approaching soon for my daughter. This means buying school clothes, backpacks, shoes and all the required supplies that the school wants. She is going in the 8th grade and qualified for two high school courses to take. I'm so excited for her. She will have two high school credits before she even reaches the ninth grade. I hope she stays on this track all through school. She has the possibility to get scholarships. That would be great because she wants to be a veterinarian. That takes a lot of schooling. She already know how many years she has to attend. I don't know if anyone knows how proud I am of her.
Jellypark will be our sponsor for this week's challenge. They gave us great images for using on our cards about friends. The sentiments that the design team are great. Hopefully you will get my little saying if not I will tell you after I show you my card. The image that I used is called "Ice Cream Van." I remember the ice cream trucks that use to go around the neighborhoods and sold all kinds of cold treats. Well, let's get to the prize for the winner of this challenge.

Now it's time to show you my card. Don't forget about my sentiment.

So, did you get my little funny in the sentiment? I tried to put green on the ice cream cones because mint chocolate chip ice cream is my favorite so I used it in the sentiment. The paper in the back has many words on it like friends, love star, and many more. This went perfect with the challenge for this week. Let me tell you the rest of the items that I used to make my friendship card.

I don't have to let you know that we are at another Sunday for a whole new challenge. Good Morning to everyone and I hope you awake enough for another new and fun challenge. I had fun with my card but the weather was a different story. We went through out first heat wave of the summer here in Ohio. It was in the 90's and with the heat index it felt like we were in hundreds. I only have one window air conditioner so only one room was cool. Believe me we didn't leave that room. This would be a great investment but I rent my home. Now this next week we get in the 80's and rain all week. Where is our happy medium? It always goes to one extreme to another. Well let's move on to the challenge.
Spyder's Other Corner
You guessed it. Dragosmoore, Spyder's Other Corner is our sponsor this week. They have the cutest images and on Wednesday they have a freebie. The image that I used is called Puss In Stocking. This has an adorable little cat inside a stocking for a child's surprise. This was one perfect image for me to use for Christmas in July. I also was able to use a new style of card that I seen. It took a few tries but I did get it to work. They will be easy now since I know how to make them. I hope you like the new style. Before I show you my cute image and different style of card let's tell you what you will be trying to win this week.

Good Morning to everyone. I'm back from my little vacation. It was nice to be away for a little while, even though I was only an hour and a half away. The dogs were so little that I wish I could remember what breed they are. It was the first time I seen them and stayed at my mom's. The only thing about being that close is your kids still find you and call you with their problems. They knew I needed some alone time but that didn't matter to them. Then I come home and my grandson is staying the night. It turned it to having him for three days. He is just so active. I needed a vacation from my vacation. There is so much more to tell but I won't bore you with it all.
Isn't the boy and girl above cute.  Limited Runs is sponsoring our challenge this week. We are going to work with things with wings. My image that I chose was called Freddy The Turkey. Yes, I am thinking of Thanksgiving already. I'm really trying to get some of my cards done early so I can spend more time shopping and wrapping. Freddy The Turkey is so adorable. He still has all his feathers on him so I could try and make the feathers with different colors. I liked working on the detailed work. After reading this, you could head over to Limited Runs and see all their great images that you would like to make for your holidays. To start off you may win the prize that the sponsor is giving to one lucky winner this week.

Here is Freddy the Turkey on the card that I made for Thanksgiving.

See the coloring in the feathers. I thought that it turned out great. I was shocked that I could get all the little feathers to stand out. Add the Thanksgiving paper and fall colors and there is the card. It's amazing of the fall stuff you can find at this time of year. Here are the products that I used to make this card.
