Here is a post you don't want to miss. We are revealing Robyn's Fetish New Autumn Digital Stamps that she is adding to her store today. You are going to love these. There are a total of 16 digital images she will be revealing. Our design team used a couple of the images each. So you will be seeing all the new images made in many ways by our design team. I was lucky and received 3 of the new images to work with. The names of these are Boo Too You Too, Little Pumpkin Head, and Happy Scarecrow. The little pumpkin and scarecrow are used together to make a scrapbook layout. Let me show you the first project I have using "Boo To You Too."

As you can see I made ghost ornaments for my string of Halloween Lights.These lights ornaments were easy to make. I have a little more to do to finish the strand of lights. I think they look adorable hanging from my mantel. All that I used to make these was Card Board, Black Marker, Blue Pencil around the edges, and then I laminated them so they wouldn't get destroyed if I used them outside. The second project was a Scrapbook Layout.

Now this is where I used the two digital images called "Little Pumpkin Head" and "Happy Scarecrow." I made a little pumpkin patch with the images and my Grand Daughter Remie. This was cute because she has read hair that went perfect with all of the layout. The items that I used was Cardstock, Paper, 3D Pumpkins that was all from The Paper Studio, 3D Sentiments were from Paper House. Besides my Grand Daughter I think I love the way I colored the Scarecrow the best. I just think he turned out adorable.

So to see all 16 images just go to Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More Store. Look at all the images and then go to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog to see what our design team made with all the images. So go and see some wonderful images that you will definitely want to add to your collection.

Hello Again!! Hope everyone had a great week. Mine was very emotional. I found out that my carpal tunnel has come back and it is much worse this time. My fingers will stay numb if the medicine will not work. If that doesn't work then a test on the nerves around my wrist, then onto surgery. I'm trying to avoid the surgery but they say sooner or later it is going to have to be done. I have a hard time working on things for a period of times. Mornings are the best so that's when I try to get everything done that I can. I'm still getting my cards done and some layouts but when I can't I will be devastated. Let's get to a better subject. Out new challenge. 

This week's challenge is sponsored by Lacy Sunshine. Her store is so colorful and she has the cutest images. I think I have said it before but I'm going to say it again. The images with the big eyes draws me to her store. I think the eyes make the images even cuter. The image that she graciously let me use is called "Winnie Light Tester." Winnie is so cute with her big eyes and she is trying to untangle a string of lights for a Christmas Tree. She even has a cute little light on the top of her hat. I'm glad that Lacy Sunshine was a sponsor for us again. I know I really appreciate it. She is also giving out a nice prize for someone to win.

Now that I have explained Lacy Sunshine's store and my image let me show you the card that I made. I know it will be obvious but I made a rectangle card. 

I tried every way I could but could not get the colors of her shirt to show up. I used a coral and lavender to color the shirt. I wish you could see it because the color is there. I had those individual lights that I wanted to use and I just bought this tree even though it's old die cut. So, these are the items I used for making this card.

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio
Paper -- DCWV
Christmas Tree -- Spellbinder's Shape-abilities (2012 Holiday Tree)
Embellishments -- Dress It Up
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils  

Well I'm at another end of a post. I also have another Christmas card done for Christmas. I need to see how many more I need. Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog has all the rules for the challenge and cards from our great design team to give you some inspiration.

Good Morning. Hope you're enjoying the first weekend of fall. Of course, our first day was rainy and did stop before my daughter's 16th Birthday Bonn-Fire. We totally went and did something different then her friends have done in the past years. We had hay bales, smores, and a lot of food and cake. We even have food left to have dinner again today. It did get very cold so us old folk came in for the heat of the house and leave her to her friends. She had a great time and that I am grateful for. It was all worth it in the end.

The East Wind is sponsoring this week's oriental challenge. They were kind enough to let me choose one of their images. The image I chose is called "Aurora Cabbage Butterflies." The name just screams oriental. The East Wind has very beautiful images. I love the way the hair flows or is put up in some kind of fashion. I love butterflies and the dress the lady was wearing. I can honestly tell you that I'm still trying to get the hang of making oriental cards. I don't know why but my mind goes blank when I think of making something. Maybe if I get an oriental book and read it, I could learn more and then know more of what to make. So before I show you what I did make I want to tell you what the East Wind is giving as a prize this week.

3 Single Digital Stamps
The Est Wind

You will have no problem finding something that you will like from their etsy store. So, here is my interpretation of an oriental card.

Since their was butterflies in the name I wanted to put butterflies on the card. The other paper I wanted to use I thought would be perfect but couldn't come up with anything else to go with it. So I used the butterfly paper and embossed cardstock with a butterfly folder. The flowers did remind me of oriental so I hope they so match the theme. Here are where the items came from.

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio
Paper -- Colorbok
Embossed Butterflies -- Cuttlebug Folder
3D Butterfly -- K&Company
Flowers -- Wild Orchid Crafts
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

I hope you enjoyed the way I made my oriental card. I wanted to make the dress with different colors so I hope you can figure out all three colors. This did take me a little while. I can't wait to see what your take is on oriental. So go to The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and enter your card. You will also find information on how to become a member of our design team. We really do have fun and were like a family. Have a Great Week and I will see you next week with a different challenge

Hello to everyone. I'm back from my month's vacation off and ready to start with my new challenge. My move had some cliches and it was very long for all of us. There was something that needed fixed before we closed and that held us up for a week and when the day came to close the owners were still trying to get their things out. But, in the end, we made it and we love our new home. 

I'm excited to get back in the groove again so I can see some very lovely projects that you will all be making. So, let's start with the first of our 3 sponsors. 

Sponsor #1

They are having a great sale going on right now. All Fall/Halloween and Christmas images are 40% off. That's a great deal they have going on but you can win images just by entering our challenge. Now the prize that they are giving away is 2 images and if you use one of their stamps the prize changes to 3 stamps.  

Sponsor #2

This is an etsy store worth taking the time to go and look. She has the cutest little characters for you to choose from. The Halloween images are so adorable. You could use them to make cute invitations for a party or just a card for a little child. The prize that they will be giving is 3 images from their etsy store. Now to the last sponsor

Sponsor #3

I used the image Petal from this etsy store. They have very adorable images and I'm glad that I was able to choose an image from them. This image is a sweet little girl sitting on petals of a flower. I colored her first and then picked everything else that I made it with. So here is the card that I made with Petal

I do hope that you like her. I think she turned out great. So it's your turn to make those projects and enter them in Lil Patch Of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog

Good Morning!! It may be dreary here but I'm happy to wake up in my home. It's starting to feel like home and just not a house we bought. It's taking me awhile to get everything unpacked but it's getting closer and closer. Still trying to find some of my scrapbooking stuff but I'm impressed with what I have found. There is stuff I never knew I had. I had a smaller place so things were placed anywhere they would go. I must have forgotten all those places because it's like Christmas opening a box. Don't get wrong, I'm still going to stores to get things that I haven't found yet. I'm still loving that because some items end up in the cart that I wasn't looking for. You can never have enough supplies. I have to Thank those people that didn't put the items I needed where they were suppose to be. LOL

Bugaboo Digi Stamps is our sponsor this week who let me use their great image. This is a store that you should really put in your favorites and subscribe to the newsletter. I get an e-mail from them with a freebie you can get from their store and they show their new releases. Love it. So here is a little about my image. Bugaboo had stamps with numbers and little people standing with them. I picked "Peekers 4" because my grand daughter will be four in April plus the little person is a girl. How could I go wrong with this. So before I show you my card, here is the prize someone will win on this challenge.

WOW!! What a great prize. So, here is "Your 4th Birthday."

I had this idea of making the card in the shape of the number four. I'm glad that it turned out. I really like the way that it turned out. The two sided paper helped me match the colors perfectly. I may have to try them a little more. Here are the items that I used to make this card.

Cardstock -- The Final Touch
Paper -- My Mind's Eye (Lost and Found 2)
Template I Used -- Woodpile Fun (Needed Something Sturdy)
Pink Pearls -- Prima (Say It With Pearls)
Big White Flower -- Handmade Prima Flowers
White Flowers With Beads -- Hobby Lobby
All Other Flowers -- Wild Orchid Crafts
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

I really hope you enjoyed the post that I did today. Hopefully it will give you some inspiration for you to make your card. All the rules are on Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and while yo are there take a look at what the other team members made with their number. I will see you next week with a whole new challenge. 

Don't forgot that we are still having our Dt call until the end of the month. You don't need any experience to join. Come and join us. You will be glad you did. The information for this is also on the Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog.

Hello Everyone!! I'm back from my big move to my new home and last. I still have boxes to unpack but there was a lot of cleaning to do before unpacking. I absolutely love my new home. It's much more peaceful where I am. My daughter is five minutes from her best friend and her friends mom drives them to school and back. She goes right by here anyway so she volunteered. I pick up when she can't so it's very convenient. My daughter has more friends here then she thought so she is really happy. I also see my husband more because we moved closer to where he works. Nice having dinner at a decent time now. But, I truly miss my scrapbooking and cardmaking. I don't have everything in place and I'm still looking through boxes to get what I need. My plan didn't work out where the boxes I needed to unpack first went in the area that I had set up. Not good for me at all. I am working on it though. Enough about the move and on to the challenge. 

Back To School. I'm sure there were many parents cheering on this day. Everyone around here started late in August but my daughter started the 13th of August and they are thinking of doing it even earlier next year. Crazy!! So making this card was great. I used an image called "Computer Wiz." The image is from out great owner and designer Robyn. While on my little vacation I come up with an idea for this card I wanted to make. Since I was working with a computer wiz, I wanted to use actual keyboard keys to spell out "Genius." I think they turned out pretty good and I recycled something also. I'm taking the rest of the keys off in case I may need them again. You just never know. So, let me tell you what Robyn will be giving you for this week's prize.

3 Images Of The Winner's Choice

Now here is my card that I called "Genius"

I hope you like it. It's always great to make something with recycled items. The keys only look like they are off is because the paper with the squares are all different ways. You have to look close to notice. Here are the items I used to make this card.

Cardmaking --  The Paper Studio
Paper -- DCWV (The Grade School Pack)
Recycled Keyboard Keys
Embellishments -- Dress It Up
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils
