Hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend. I know I am. I actually get to spend some time with my husband. We are always busy on the weekends to actually sit and just talk but with that extra day we will have that time. Yesterday we did spend the morning at another soccer game. The other team was a little aggressive and even one person took her elbow and hit Jelissa in her throat. Just out of reaction my daughter pushed her down. She knows she was wrong but she said it hurt really bad and she just reacted. There were a lot of girls that were getting hurt by things like that. I thought sports was suppose to be a fun thing not a wrestling match.

Well let's get to this challenge where we are using a digi. You can use any digital stamp that you want just make sure that it is a digital image. The Paper Shelter will be our sponsor for this week's challenge. They let me use an adorable image by the name of "Beach Boy." You can just imagine how adorable he is. I did make my card a little different with this image. I used things you may find at the beach with the image. I also used light brown papers on this instead of a lot of blue. Before I get to showing you my card let's see the prize for this week's winner.

Another great prize that we are giving to our lucky winner. So let me show you my card for a little inspiration.

I tried to make it look like the little boy had a little burn from the sun. I did this on his shoulders, arms and feet. Some people seen it but others did not. That's why I am telling you. His hair is covering his eyes but you still need those sunglasses. Here is the items I used to make this project.

Hello!! Hope you are having a good day so far. I'm finally starting things off on a good step. I didn't have to wake up at 5 in the morning and I have no soccer today. This has been the most busiest week that I have had in years. My daughter started school Tuesday and it's her first year in high school. I cried all the way home after I dropped her off. Things go so fast from here and I just want to hold onto her more. I was shocked when she came home and said she hated it. She wants to go back to the eight grade. Things are so much different and she is having a little bit of a hard time adjusting. I give her another week or so and she will be in the hang of things. She is so wore out when I pick her up from soccer practice or a game. she is in bed before me now. She has a lot on her plate for the next month in a half. I could write a book but I want to enjoy my day off.

Making cards for men are hard for me. I don't know why but it had been. So when I seen this challenge I was saying oh - no. I did get a great image though from Oak Pond Creations who is our sponsor this week. My image is named "Grumpy Fish." Every man loves to fish so I thought this would be a cute image. Oak Pond Creations had a great variety to choose from for the men. Take a little time and jump over to her store for a quick look. You may see something you like when you are there and want to be in this challenge. Oak Pond Creations will be giving the challenge winner

Here is what I did with "Grumpy Fish." I hope you enjoy it.

He is a grumpy fish. I had this fish paper left over for another project and decided I wanted to use it but not to much that it takes the focus away from the fish. The darker paper is suppose to look like the deeper part of the ocean and the light blue is the water towards to the top of the ocean. I wanted to tell you so you see why I was using the papers that I selected. Here is where everything came from.

Paper -- K & Company & DCWV

Not many items but what I did use I think made a great card. Putting Dad on the card made it even look more like a card for a man. So I hope this gave you a little inspiration for making a card for a man. Now, I'm going to enjoy the rest of today and I hope you do as well. Remember to go to The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog to enter your project and look at the other cards that the design team made to give you more inspiration and see the great cards that you. Have a Wonderful Week and I will be here next Sunday for another great challenge.

Good Morning!! Hope everyone is having a good start to their day. I am burnt from staying out in the sun at my daughter's soccer game. I was also stung by a bee which I'm allergic to. It didn't do to much because it was a little sweat bee. Just a lot of swelling and itching. This was the first official game of the season. Her team won 6 - 0. What a great way to start off the season. They have a really good team this year. She has two games a week for the next month and a half. The other three days of the week are practice days. I am totally running everyday and this includes all the other little things that I have to run into town for. I will look back and think that all that running was worth more then I thought. 

This challenge is one that you rarely see and I had fun with it. IMAGINE THAT!...digi's by Kris. She has digital stamp sets and digital paper. Her sets are great. What ever the set is about she puts her own sayings on their for you to use. That was a great idea for the set that I used. The set that I used was the Promo Lady Bugs. I have done many ladybug cards and just wanted to add more to the collection that I do have. IMAGINE THAT!...digi's by Kris is giving the following to this week's challenge winner.

These sets have many images and sayings on them. So, this is one prize that you really don't want to miss on. Now that you know that, here is the card with my ladybug with a piece of watermelon.

I hope you like the summer look in the paper that goes with the watermelon. I did color the watermelon with pink and the ladybug with red but when I took the picture I could not get them to look the way the colors really look like. Here are the items that I used to make this card.

I hope you like the card that I made for this week's challenge. For some reason i think of lemonade when I look at the paper. It might just be me. Don't forget to add your card over at The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. Can't wait to see your cards. Have a Wonderful Week and I will see you next Sunday.

Happy Sunday morning. Hope everyone is well since the last time I had posted. I have to take some time off for me and take care of some health issues that I have been putting off. I just waited to long to deal with it. I have had to quit some things I was doing and slow down some. It's hard but something that is necessary at this moment. I will still be here every Sunday though to post my creations because that is one thing that I cannot give up. I have been on this team for a long time and would never leave. I have learned a lot from all the people from Robyn's Fetish. 

I'm glad that I didn't miss this challenge. I love anything goes as everyone knows. I try not to make a card so I can show you other things that I do make. This week you will be seeing a picture frame with the image that I chose from Bugaboo Digi Stamps. The image that I chose to work with is called "If friends were flowers." This little girl is an angel and very adorable. I know I say this a lot but I love Bugaboo Stamps. I even went to their site this week and bought four more that I wanted to make cards and scrapbook layouts with. You will definitely want to win the prize they are giving this week. Here it is

Now that's a prize worth making something for this challenge. If I had the time I would try and make something else. But, I have to watch what I take on. My daughter is about all I can focus on with practice everyday and scrimmages at different places. This was one of the things I could not give up so other things I did have to take out. So here is the picture frame that I made with my "Friends with Flowers." I call it "My Daughter, My Friend."

I really hope you like it and maybe gives you a little inspiration. That year I had taken a lot of pictures of Jelissa in front of all different kind of flowers. It was just something we did one day to have fun. I'm glad that I have the pictures to remember that day. The little girl is cute and the sign is also from Bugaboo Stamps. Here are the other items I used for this frame.

Thank You for stopping here today and reading my post. I will be back next Sunday and I hope to see your projects on Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. Have a Wonderful Week!!
