I was able to get a card done to night to use for a couple of challenges and a monthly card swap in which the them is anything Snow. it is a sketch challenge for them and  provided this cute image and asked us to create a card that makds us think of a christmas card by looking at this card and Frosty came to mind for me.

I'm So Excited!

Check out the News I get to be guest designer for Joni Wilson's blog Inktegrity in Feburary!   Joni has done a wonderful job picking out her design team and I am so excited to be a part of it.  I look forward to getting to know everyone on her team but I am very lucky that I can say I have met in person Joni, Mel and Laura Jean. 
Joni suprised some friends of mine and I  when we went to vistit Melissa (another ds member) in WV last summer and she took us to this amazing ribbon outlet, while there Joni snuck to WV and suprised us all.  Joni is truly an amazing person and I am in awe of her. 
Mel does some awesome work check out her blog and she does the Tuesday morning sketches challenge blog so check her out.
I got to meet Laura Jean this summer in Columbus along with a bunch of other special SCS friends who does some amazing work as well.
I feel like I know Jacquie b/c we  were able to do some trades for some product about a month ago and she sent me the most amazing card with my goodies so I have  been following her every since. 
I am truly thankful and excited and can't wait to get to know everyone, thanks again Joni!

Check out her link and wish everyone good luck!

More challenges

Here is a  card I created today for Roses on Paper challenge blog .  Their challenge was to create a Christmas layout using a Magnolia, or Bells and whispers.  The window was a stamp that I stamped some time ago when I was stamping with friends, but I thought it would fit perfectly with this challenge.  The paper is from a Me and My Big Ideas Christmas pad that I got on clearance last year at Mikes after Christmas. 

Happy Sunday

I am trying to squeeze in some challenges today while everyone watches the Bengals play.
This is a card I did for Mel's Tues Morning Sketch challenge,  Her challenge was for a round card which I have to admit has not been one of my favs but when I saw all the great examples I decided to give it a try.  I think I like it.

I was also able to enter this card in the which was to create a Christmas card with a digi stamp.

I used my Scal to cut the circle card, my inside circle and background scallop circle.  The stamp is the most recent freebie "snow friends" from Whimsie Doodles and the tag from their Christmas sentiment set.  Enjoy!

Sassy Challenge

I was able to squeeze a couple of challenges out today.  This is the card I was able to do for ( which required ovals, 3 eyelets and 2 ribbons) and also for  use 3 of 4 fall colors. I am proud to say I was chosen as a winner in their last challenge.   I got picked with someone else as a tie for first place.   I love these stamps so I was very excited to be able to pick out two more stamps of my choice which is awesome b/c I had a hard time choosing which ones I wanted to begin with.  I hope you enjoy.

Stamp Something For Jamie

I came across an amazing blog hop today which  ultimately brought me to this blog   It is the story of an 11 year old who is now dealing with the loss of her mother in the most horrible way possible.  It is also about the courage of a little girl who was also injured during the attack on her mother.  The blog hop is an awesome gesture to shower this little girl with love, hope and well wishes during this difficult time.

I hope my post will catch the eye of someone who has not seen the blog yet and will also that the journey I did to the end of the blog.  Kudos to everyone involved in setting up this wonderful blog hop for all of us  be able to help spread a little hope and remind ourselves that life is precious and can change in an instant.

What a neat challenge, 1 layer.   You don't realize how difficult it is because we have tried forever to get as many layers that we could but now just take it to 1 can throw you off.  This was a lot of fun though.  The stamp is from the winter collection, another of the sweet blog candy I won.  the Snow is my "Faux" flower soft just plain old Styrofoam glued on to look like snow.   I hope you like it!
