Here we are with another Monday challenge. These type of challenges are fun to do. Everyone will have something different from the board. Let me show you the board that we used and then I will tell you which line I used. 

Look on this board. There is a free space so you didn't need to do three items on your card. I chose to use the top line straight across. When I picked my image from Limited Runs  Stamps I knew what I wanted to do. The image that I used was called Garden and I want to say Thank You Nikki for letting me use this image. Limited Runs Stamps is one of our sponsors this week and they are giving one lucky winner a choice of three digi's from there store.

You are lucky this week because we have two sponsors this week. Yeah!! Two winner's this week so twice the chance of winning some digi's. This is great for you. So you see that Limited Runs Stamps is one sponsor and the second sponsor is Polka Doodles.

Polka Doodles is giving a winner of this challenge four digi's. Someone is going to be lucky this week. I love that there are two winner's. I'm sure you are to. So let me show you the card that I made with "Garden."

So, I hope you see the three items are that I used. I will tell you anyway. The yellow is the paper under the Celebrate Today. The pearls are on the cupcakes and then you can see the lace at the bottom. I will now tell you what items I used to make this card. 

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- The Paper Studio & DCWV

Sunday is here again. Are we not all excited for this relaxing day. I am actually going to take this day off today just to give myself a break from all the drama that is going on around my life. Won't get into that but I really need one. Yesterday morning was not good for me. Don't laugh but this is a major thing that happened. My coffee maker quit working. That is the first thing I do in the morning is start that coffee pot. My husband was kind enough to run down to the little gas station and get me two big cups of coffee. I have been use to doing that for years and this was a disaster for me. So, of course, I did have to run in town and get me a new one. Didn't plan on going anywhere but this was an emergency for me. If your a coffee drinker you will understand what is like not to get that first cup of coffee. I could say that was a little drama that was my own and no one elses that everyone piles on me. Let's get to a great challenge this week.

Who doesn't know a young child that needs a birthday card? I know I have my grand daughter's birthday next month. She will be 2. I have many niece's and nephews to give one to. So this was a fun challenge for me. Our sponsor this week is Gerda's Doddles. I loved the little animals with their birthday cakes. The image that I used is called Pig with Cake. I don't think I ever used a pig before but he was cute. I'm glad that Gerda let me use this image. She is also giving away this prize to our lucky winner of the week.

Gerda's Doodles Store

Here is my card that I made with the Pig With Cake


Is he not adorable. My son said he looked like Maxwell from the commercials on TV. He's still adorable. I took a little string and attached the balloon to the pigs hand. I couldn't find my round balloons but I thought these would still work. I love the idea that I came up with the pig inside a balloon. It was just something different. Let me tell you the items that I used for making this card.

Paper -- The Paper Studio

Good Morning to all that is reading this. Nice Sunday morning so far. I have my grandson (Hayden) today.When my son has Hayden for the weekend he always wants to spend one of the nights here. It does make me feel a little guilty when he wants to be here with us. Sometimes we do say no so he will stay and visit with his father more. He spent the night last night and we had a great time. Taking him to the store was fun.  We let him pick out what he wanted for snack's and his breakfast. He actually picked out food that was good for him. He played all night with out wanting to watch a movie. He is so active that I fell asleep before he did. Thank goodness my daughter was here to stay up with him. Even though he goes to sleep late he still rises early. I just want a little bottle of his energy so I can use it a little bit each day. 

We have a fantastic sponsor this week. They are Lacy Sunshine and they have great digital images. I want to Thank them so much for letting me use Izzy Bella Boo, Cute As A Button. When I seen this image I knew what pictures I wanted to use with her. Pictures of my grand daughter (Remie.)  I'm still working on layouts for my family album. Since we could do anything but a card this was the perfect time to do another scrapbook layout. Let me tell you about the great prize they are giving one lucky winner this week. I would like to have this one.

$20.00 Gift Certificate
To The
Lacy Sunshine Store.

Isn't this a sweet prize. Now, let me show you what I did with Izzy Bella Boo, "Cute As A  Button."

The background paper is many different pastel colors of butterflies. I used the image I had and flipped it so they were looking at each other on the page. I took the colors on one and switched them on the other one. Then I made sure I put two different colors of card stock behind the pictures. I did have fun putting the flowers together. I don't have much of a green thumb but I think I did good putting these together. Well let me tell you where all the items came from.

I hope that you all are enjoying the March Madness Sale. This is something that you really don't want to miss. Plus, there is some good news going on over at Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More. We have brand new images for Easter and St. Patrick's Day. These images are now available in the store and you can get them for the 40% off. This is a great bargain. I love Easter so this is a great time to get these. I was lucky though and was able to use one of these images that is called "Babe Ducky." Here is the card.

I just loved this little duck and had so many ideas but couldn't seem to get them to come out right. So I went with this one to show everything was making the Easter theme. I started off with looking through my paper stash to see if I had any cute paper in there. I found this paper with different color of eggs. With the different colors I can use any of them for my card. The yellow and pink cardstock was from a pad that had baby colors in it. I just received these new flowers a week ago and they worked perfectly with all the colors of the card. I then ended with my title and ribbon. This babe ducky looks like he is ready for Easter.

Over at Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog you can see all the new images and how they look on the cards that the design team made. We all had a different image so you will see them all dressed up. I would really take the time and go see these beautiful images. You can get started on your Easter cards early and already know where to get those cute images. 

I hope to see you there and have a good week.


Hello!! We're here again to have another Monday Challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. Our challenge is monochromatic. To be quite honest, I had no clue what kind of challenge this was. I had never heard of monochromatic. I did find out and I really enjoyed making my card. Never realized that there are so many shades of purples. Of course, it was hard to pick the ones I wanted. I wanted something different then just the plain purple. 

Well more about the challenge. I'm sure you would love to know who our sponsor is this week. It is Rick St. Dennis.

 I was in love when I seen his designs. The designs there are beautiful. I had a hard time to pick one but I found one that is an Angel. Again, if you know me I love Angels. This design is called Remembrance Angel. She is very beautiful. 

Let me show you the card that I made with this Angel. 

I hope you like her as much as I do. I already have another project in mind with this design. Well, here are the items that I used to make this card.

Cardstock-- Close To My Heart & Colorbok
Paper -- From My Paper Stash
Gold Stars -- Dress It Up
Glitter On Clouds -- Ranger (Crystal Ice)

Colored Pencils.

Ok, I hope you enjoyed the card and design and I will see you next Monday. Just remember to add your cards to Incy Wincy Designs Monday Challenge. I hope you enjoy your week and I will be back next week with a brand new Monday Challenge.

It's Sunday again and that means another challenge for the week. I had a challenge of getting three cards done for this week. With everything else going on I didn't know if I was going to make it. Jelissa started track Monday and when she came home she dropped right onto the couch. She said that the coach wouldn't slow down to her pace since she just started. The second day was the same way. She kept looking dehydrated and very pale. After that day she decided that track wasn't a sport for her. She didn't want to be called a quitter because she has never quit at anything. I told here she wasn't a quitter. She tried a new sport and just didn't like it. At least she was brave enough to try it. This coming week my oldest child will be turning 25. Writing that just makes me feel old. Happy Birthday Joshua.

What a great challenge we have this week. I really had fun with it. First, let me tell you who our sponsor is this week. It's KPM Doodles. Our design team was able to use the set called St. Patty's Fun Stamps. There were 12 different images that we could used from the set that we were using. I ended up using 3 of the images. I tried to come up with something that would include more but I just couldn't. I do like what I ended up with. Before I show you, let me tell you what your prize is this week.

2 Sets
Of The Winner's Choice
The KPM Doodles Store

Now here is the card that I used for Green and Glitter.


I used as much green as I could and the shamrocks have the glitter on them. On the paper it says a lot of different Irish sayings. It's a nice paper to use. Here are the products that I used to make this card.

Good Monday Morning!! Starting my day here with Sunshine and no rain. We have had a touch of Spring here so it was real nice to sit and enjoy the weather outside. The only thing is that it's getting muddy around here where the snow is still melting. 

We have one sponsor this week and they are Bugaboo Stamps.

And this is the prize you will be winning for the challenge.

I love this badge. It is cute for telling everyone what their prize will be. 

I was able to use Bears in a Frame for the image that I used for this challenge. It turned out way better then I thought it was going to. I would like to Thank Bugaboo Stamps for letting me use this on. I haven't done many black and white cards. Actually, I have only done one. Here is the card that I made. The one other color I used was brown because of the bears.

I think it turned out cute. A lot better then I thought when I started the card. There is white around the black frame but you can't see it very much. I'm going to give you my little list of the items that I used.

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

I said it was a short list. I hope you get some inspiration from this card and the other design team's card. Just go to Incy Wincy Monday Challenge and you can see them all and add your card to the challenge. Have a Wonderful Week and I will see you next Monday.


Good Morning to all. How did everyone like last week's challenge of everything goes? Those are the best challenges of all. Hope you all had a great week. We are getting ready for track season. Signing up, buying shoes, headbands and of course the  physical. This is adding up real quickly. She couldn't find some nice lower costing shoes. She has to pick ones that were over $80.00. I hope her feet don't grow for a couple of season's. Soccer practices are over until the summer which is great. I won't be trying to run her from one sport to the next. I do get a little break because her practices are right after school and all I have to do is pick her up. This is going to be weird getting use to. Well, there's my little tidbit of my life so let's get to the challenge at hand.

For some reason I like doing cards for boys and babies. Having a grandson gives me a lot inspiration. My boys do to. I remember things that they did when they were very young. Milk Coffee Stamps is our great sponsor for this week's challenge. They have the cutest images of boys and in all there other categories. I chose Soccer Boy from their boys category. I chose this one partly because of my daughter. I have a lot of embellishments and stuff for the card from making things for her. How lucky can I be. Here is the prize for the winner of this week's challenge

3 Digital Stamps
The Winner's Choice

Let me show you my card for the soccer boy.

I did have a hard time to make the soccer ball to turn out right. I looked at all her pictures and still couldn't get it to look right. My husband did remind me that not all soccer balls are the same so I went with this one. I did make the tips of his hair look like they were bleached out to match the style these days. Let me give you the items that I used for this card. It's not a long list.

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- From My Paper Stash
Embellishments -- Dress It Up
Font -- Rockwell Extra Bold
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

I can't believe that I'm done with my post already. This went by real quick. I want to remind you again to go to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog to add you cards about young boys. While there, our design team made cards that will give you some inspiration. Hope the rest of your day is great and your week is wonderful.

Another Monday here again. I had a busy week working on some layouts. I haven't done any for a while. I'm trying to do at least one per event that has been going on. I'm working on a soccer one from my daughter's team this year. Another good note is we have two sponsor's this week. That means, of course, two winner's. Yeah!!! Everyone likes it when they have two chances to win a prize then one. 

Our first sponsor is Dr. Digi's House of Stamps

I loved the stamps and had a hard time finding one. I did use one of these images for my card that I will tell you in a little bit. Dr. Digi's will be giving one lucky winner 2 Digital Images.

This is our second sponsor Zlatoena's.

They will be giving away 2 Digital Images to our second lucky winner from their etsy store. They have cute digi's also. So I can't wait to see who our two lucky winner's will be.

I told you that I used an image from Dr. Digi's House Of Stamps. It was from the Cuddly Critter section. I chose an elephant. I read the challenge wrong and thought I was making it for a different challenge. So, when I see it said Anniversary, I freaked out. It took me a couple of hours but I did come up with this cute card. I think the saying went well with the image. Here it is

I think it turned out cute. All the paper does have glitter on it. You can see a little bit of it in this picture. This is also the first time I used these flowers. I ordered from a different company and I really like these. So here's the items that I used to make this.

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart & My Mind's Eye
Big Pink Flower -- The Paper Studio
All Little Flowers & Leaves -- Wild Orchid
Font -- Harrington

Well that's all from me this week. Just make sure that you go to Incy Wincy Monday Challenge and add your project there. Two winner's is a great challenge to enter. Well have a great week and I will see you next Monday.


Good Morning to all. Hope you are having a good start this Sunday morning. So far it's great here but we are suppose to get four inches to a foot of snow tonight and tomorrow morning. My daughter is looking forward to another school day. Although, she will have to do another storm packet. I have to get to a craft store because I ran out of a lot of supplies that I use every week for my cards and layouts. I have been trying to use a lot of my stash but I always run out of adhesives, glue pens, and other every day items. I usually go to the craft store once a month (unless there is a really good sale) and get all the items I will need for that month. It's too far to drive to get there if I need one thing so I try and do it all in one trip. I chose to live away from town so I have to grin and bear it. 

Here is every ones favorite challenge. ANYTHING GOES is the challenge for the week. We will get to see a lot of great cards and projects this week. Robyn is our great sponsor for this week. We all know by now that she has wonderful digital stamps to work with. I was able to chose the image called "Sunflower 2." I love sunflowers and I wanted something different to work with this week. Some thing that reminds me of the summer. Here is the prize that Robyn will be giving to that lucky winner.

3 Digital Images
The Winner's Choice

This week since it was anything goes I decided to do a scrapbook layout. I had this picture in mind that has my husband and grandson in it. My grandson is always want to wrestle with his grandpa and now in this picture my grandson is trying to sit on his grandpa's head. He has a yellow shirt on and my husband has brown. For some reason this reminded my of the sunflower image. This page took a lot longer then I thought but I think it turned out pretty good. Here is a picture of it.

I hope you like my layout. I read a bunch of family quotes and titles and made my own little saying on the layout. I want everyone in my family to know that I love them. Sometimes people don't say it often enough. I taught my kids to say it. You never know what will happen in this world. Here is my list of items used to make my layout.

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- K & Company
Flowers Around Picture -- My Stash
Font On Saying -- Harrington

It's the end of this post. I will be waiting on that snow we are suppose to get tonight. Some times the weather men don't always get it right. Remember to go to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog to enter your projects and while your there take a look at the other design teams creations and leave them a little love. This has been a great Sunday morning and I hope yours is just as good. See you next week for a brand new challenge.
