Good Morning, Afternoon or Evening. That is where ever you are at the time you are reading this. Hope things were good with you this past week. This week I was lucky to catch the flu from my son who brought it home from work. This just messes with my creativity. I can't think of sketches or anything that well. I do hope you think the project that I did come up with is beautiful. 

The East Wind is our sponsor for this week's challenge. This is an etsy store where you can buy their digital stamps. As of now, they have 299 different images. That is a lot to look at and to choose from. So the image that The East Wind was gracious enough to let me use is called, "Aurora - Lost Lagoon." She is very beautiful and is putting her hand in water to pet a king fish. I say he is a king fish because the fish has a crown on his head. The way this image is designed is amazing. I really fell in love with it. I did use a background paper that looks like water and put a light blue piece of paper on part of the top to break it up. I come up with "Hello My Friend" for the card since the girl is petting the fish underwater. It looked a little plain so I added some flowers at the top. Let me tell you what The East End is giving as a prize before I show you the square card I made with this image.

3 Digital Images

Thank You for the prize you are giving to our lucky winner this week. Now here is the card that I made with Aurora - Lost Lagoon

I really hope you you like the image. The picture was hard to take a picture for some reason. The card is darker then what it looks like here. The fish has three different colors on it. What looks like white spaces is actually a light blue. It's time for me to have my camera looked at. Just to make sure everything is working properly. I do think the flowers made the card look so much better. So, let me tell you where those flowers came from and the other items.

WOW!! It's the first Sunday of 2016 and our first challenge of the year. So, how was everyone's New Year's celebrations? I can honestly say we stayed home while my daughter went and enjoyed her first New Year's Eve with friends. My excitement happened on the 30th of December. It's me and my husband's wedding anniversary. Our kids rented us a one night cabin get away for Christmas for our anniversary. My 16 year old daughter was in charge of it all. I love you Jelissa for that. I actually spent time with my husband and we enjoyed every minute of it.

Robyn is our very first sponsor of the year and we are glad she is. She even gave us a great challenge for the first one "Anything Goes." The best challenge that is out there. I know it's my favorite one. Robyn let us use one of her new Christmas/Winter images to choose from. I picked, "Rudolph With Scarf." This is an absolutely cute image. Rudolph is sitting down like he fell but is warm with his scarf  he has on. Since this was anything goes I mad a card that looks like a baby's onsie. I couldn't think of a layout for this one. The onsie has red trim and the base has letters on it that are from the word Christmas. Then Rudolph is right there in the front. I really want to show you but I need to tell you what Robyn is giving for the first prize this year.

Now here is that card that has Rudolph With Scarf

I love the image and also the card that you can use for Christmas invitations of baby invitations. The only thing that I had a problem with was getting the brads in a straight line. This is an easy fix for me though. Just have to sit and redo it when I get the chance. Besides that I hope you like the card. Here are the items I used.
