Good Morning on this cold and icy Sunday. It's not a great thing to wake up and there is ice on the steps and sidewalks. When I let my dog out she was having a hard time standing on the stoop that she fell down to the first step. Yes, I laughed at her but she did get back up. She went straight into the house. This is something that I probably won't ever see again. With everything I have been going through I needed that little laugh. Thank goodness for my pets. They always amuse me.

I have been able to keep up on making my cards. This week I was able to use a digi from Fred, She Said Designs. I used "Christmas Ornament" from their Christmas section of their store. They have 41 images in their Christmas section. That's enough to make many Christmas cards that you can give to your family and friends. The ornament that I used was perfect with the Christmas paper that I had bought last year for my Christmas cards.Before I show you my ornament let me tell you what Fred, She Said Designs will be giving to that lucky winner

$10.00 Voucher

Now that you seen that wonderful prize for this week's challenge. Here is my card that I made. Another one that I'm sending out.

I hope you can see how well the paper went with the ornament. I had the holly that I really liked when I put it on the card. It just was a great added touch. I hope you think that it turned out great. Here are the items that I used to make this Christmas card. 

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

Hello on this early Sunday morning. Have you seen any snow yet where you live. We have been having flurries but tonight we are suppose to get 2 - 4 inches tonight into tomorrow. I love the snow and this is my favorite season but I'm not ready for snow days from the schools. I am grateful that it's going to hit this evening. My grandson's birthday party starts at noon. It's hard to believe that he is five already. Next year he will be in kindergarten. I still remember the day that his father was starting his kindergarten year. The bus didn't pick him up the first day and he was upset. It's funny how I remember these things but my kids don't. They think I'm telling them stories all the time.

Although it's close to the winter season my card is a summertime card. I think it turned out good if I say so myself. Delicious Doodles is our sponsor this week. If you visit their site they have a new beautiful Poppy Wreath that is new on their site. I was so grateful that they let me use the image "Daisies and Butterflies." When I picked this I new exactly what paper that I wanted to use. This image is really pretty and I enjoyed making it look like my own. Delicious Doodles is also giving away this following prize.

4 Digital Doodles

Let me show you how the paper and the image look together. I hope you think that everything looks good together.

I tried to make my daisies look like the ones on the paper. They look a little darker when it's in front of you. These embellishments were perfect for this card also. I do like when everything comes together. Here are the items that I used to make this "Daisies and Butterflies" card.

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- K &Company
Lace -- From My Stash
Butterfly Embellishments -- K & Company
Pop-Ups -- Ranger
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

I hope this was an interesting post for you. This is an easy card to make with the items above. give it a try and let me know how you did. I would really like you to go to The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and see the other designers cards that has Wings and Things. You can also enter your card there to. I can't wait to see your cards. I hope you enjoy your day and for those that are suppose to get the snow, Enjoy!!!!

Good Morning!! Hope everyone's Sunday is getting off to a good start. Did everyone ( who has to ) remember to turn your clocks back? I did but my husband takes care of changing them all. The first week of a time change for me is miserable. It throws off my schedule really bad. I don't know why it does but it certainly does. I really am not looking forward to it getting dark so early at night. I'm not a good night driver so I don't go to many places that I do in the summer. Well hope you all enjoy it.

We have our great Robyn that is sponsoring us this week with our Thanksgiving cards. I some times think Thanksgiving is a forgotten holiday. First you have Halloween and then boom, Christmas takes over. Robyn let us use an image from her Thanksgiving images. I chose "Pilgrim Gal." She is a cute little gal just standing there looking like she can't remember what's next to do. How do you keep up on this holiday? Robyn will be giving the winner of this challenge

3 Digital Images 

Let me show you the card that I made with "Pilgrim Gal."

I know that I don't ave food on here but thought the sentiment was great for Thanksgiving. I love this paper that I found and wanted to use an orange that matched the paper. I did add the sunflowers to make it look more like a fall card. I don't know why but I can't seem to get the sentiment to come out not being blurry. I'm still working on it to see what I'm doing wrong. This may be the time to get out my photography book and do some reading. Here are the items I used to make this card. 

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart & The Paper Studio
Paper -- The Paper Studio
Sentiment -- From A Site On The Internet (Forgot To Write It Down)
Sunflowers -- Paper Wishes
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

Well I finished another post and it's on the first weekend of November. October was not here very long. Let's see how fast this month goes. I hope you enjoyed my card and make sure you take a look at the other design teams cards here at The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. There are great cards for Thanksgiving. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and have a Wonderful Week
