Hello everyone!! I'm back from a long sickness this January. I do apologize for not being here since this is my first month as a Design Team Member for Incy Wincy Designs. Let's get to our challenge.

This week's challenge is Ribbon and Pearls. Lacy Sunshine is our sponsor for this week. The image that I was able to work with is called Razzie Sticky Wings. She is an adorable image. When I chose her I knew what I was going to do to make this card.

Just sneak over to the Incy Wincy Designs and leave your project for this week's challenge. You have until February at midnight. Can't wait to see what you all make and feel free to leave me any comments that you would like. See you next week. Have a Wonderful Week!!


Welcome to my post this morning. It's very cold here. Wind chills below O degrees. Even colder this coming week. Kids are loving it because they don't have to go to school until two hours later every morning. Which means we all can sleep in a little bit more. So far today we have 5" of snow and my Siberian Husky is loving it. On the other hand my dad is hating it because he is in charge of our township roads. So, he is out plowing over 12 hours at a time. He gets a little mad at me because I love the snow. When he said we were getting more I said "Yes" and he gave me a dirty look. We have our own opinions is this area. By the way, Happy Birthday to my Dad. His birthday was Saturday and it always seems to snow on his birthday. I went Friday to see him so I could at least tell him happy birthday before he went on the road. He said that when I came over I was just making him feel older. He's still my strength and my hero. Love You Dad!!!

Well we have a challenge to get to. Our sponsor this week is The Paper Shelter. I just love the image that they let me use this week. She is called Winter Princess. She is sitting on a tree limb with snow laying on it. Since the challenge was lots of snow I used snowflake paper, snow flake images, and glitter for snow. She has snow on her coat but I used pink on it. You are going to love the prize that they are giving out to that lucky winner.

Now let me show you the card that I made with the Winter Princess. I just named my card Magical Princess. I didn't want to use their name for her.

I hope you like all the snowflakes and glitter snow. I hope you can see the pink glitter on her coat. There is a little bit of snow on the bird's hat. So, let me tell you what products I used for this card.

I did not use a kit from The Paper Studio. It just happen that everything that I picked happened to be from them. Well I hope you enjoyed the post. Sorry that I haven't been here often this month. I have been very sick and I hope that I don't get anything like that again. Don't forget to go to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog to enter your cards. Hope the rest of the day is great for you and have a Wonderful Week!!!

It's Sunday again and I hope it has started off to a good start for you all. Still dreary here but much warmer then it was at the first of the week. We had temperatures of -7 below and wind chills that made it feel like it was -35 below zero. The kids ended up getting another 2 days off added to their Christmas break. Then the day that they went to school they were on a two hour delay. My sons had to work in it the first day but was called on the second day. They were in so many sweat shirts and still could not warm up. I was burning up in the house with raising the temperature. That's what I do hate about their jobs but it's what they love to do. Not to many people actually like the work they do.
This week we have a very interesting challenge. At first I was wondering what I was going to do. We were only aloud to use card stock. No pattern paper at all. I did figure something out and I think it is fun. Took a little long to do the sewing on it though. Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Digi Stamps. They let me work with this great image called Sewing Sunbonnet Measuring. This so adorable. She is actually in the middle of making some piece of clothing. Bugaboo Stamps has many of these sunbonnet girls that you can chose from.  Here is the prize that they will be giving on lucky winner of this challenge.

Bugaboo Digi Stamps Store
Here is the card that I called The Things We Do. I thought this would be a great card for two best friends and the things they do together.

I loved the little embellishments that I found to go with this. I sewed the cardstock to make it look like your making something. I really like the old looking sewing machines. Let me tell you what I used to make this card.
Cardstock -- The Paper Studio
Title -- Harrington Font
Embellishments -- Dress It Up (A Stitch In Time)

Well I hope you go to Bugaboo Stamps and see all the sun bonnet's they have there. You may want some with the great prize they are giving this week. Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog is the blog that is featuring this challenge so make sure you add all your cards there. Enjoy making those cards this week and I will see you next Sunday. Have a fabulous week!!

Good Morning everyone!! Hope every one's Christmas and New Year's was great. I had my ups and downs. Let's just say that December went real fast and it was January before I knew it. I have had many problems with my computer. It was hacked twice and I lost a lot of e-mails. My Internet provider just shut my e-mail off and didn't even tell me. If my husband hadn't called them I have no idea when I would have figured it out. My cell phone was also hacked to. They made a pretty great bill for me. It was a little over $5,000. Try focusing on Christmas with all this other stuff happening. Since my December is a great big story, let's get to the challenge at hand.
Robyn is the sponsor of this weeks challenge. She let us pick one of her digi's from her
store and I picked an image called Peter Da Puppy. This puppy is in pot that looks like a watering can. There is beautiful flowers around him. I found paper that had vibrant flowers to use as the background. I tried to make the flowers by the dog match the flowers on the paper I used. I did add a couple of bees around the flowers. Let me tell you what Robyn is giving to the winner of this challenge.

The Winner's Choice
Robyn's Fetish Store

Now let me show you my card Peter Da Puppy.


I hope you can see how the flowers match the paper. I had learned a technique last weekend and I think it kind of worked here. What I learned was pull the colors from your background paper and try to add it to your picture. Now, I'm just learning this so not all my cards will have that until I get better at doing this. Here are the items that I did use to make this card.
Cardstock -- Close To My Heart & The Paper Studio
Paper -- K&Company
Flower -- Orange (Kaiser Company); White (Petaloo)
Bee's -- Dress It Up
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils
Well I'm at the end again. If you would like to enter our challenge just go to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and add your card to the challenge. You can add up to three times on each challenge. Don't forget to look at the other design teams cards and leave them a little love. Hope the rest of your Sunday is great and have a Wonderful Week!!
