ROBYN'S FETISH CHALLENGE #261 "EASEL CARDS"


Good Morning to you all!! I do apologize for not being here last week. I fractured my ankle bone and it has taken awhile to get use to being in a boot that does not let your ankle and part of your foot move. I am pigeon toed so keeping my foot straight is more painful then someone that has feet that actually goes straight. I am so lucky that I have to keep this thing on for five weeks and then see if it fused back together or have to have surgery on it. It has been kicked several times by my kids and my dog so I hope that is not going to be a problem.

I love doing Easel Cards. Making them at first was hard but now they are as easy as just making a normal one. Our great sponsor this week is Fred, She Said Designs. The way you will get your images for now is through e-mail. The store is temporarily closed but you will see their images. I love the one that they let me use for this challenge. It's called "Daisies and Ladybugs." The image has a daisy chain and ladybugs by their selves or they are together. I used the chain for creating half a frame and one flower in the corner. It's easier to show you then tell you. Here is the prize they are giving and then I will show you my card.

Here is the card using "Daisies and Ladybugs" but I called the card Thank You My Friend.


I brightened the picture up so you could see how vibrant the colors look on this card. I think the daisy chain turned out really good. The background actually has big daisies on it but after I finished the card you couldn't see that very clear. You however can see the daisies on the inside of the card. Here are the items I used to make this beautiful Thank You card.

Cardstock  -- The Paper Studio & My Stash
Paper -- K&Company
Yellow & Orange Fabric Flowers -- Creative Co-Op (My Moments)
 Ladybug Embellishments -- Dress It Up
Font Used -- Script MT Bold
Colored Markers

Thank You for stopping by this week and I really hope you enjoyed the card. Take a chance with your card and head on over to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and enter. See you next week (if nothing happens LOL).

ROBYN'S FETISH CHALLENGE #259 "USE BAKER'S TWINE"


Having a good morning so far? I hope so. I'm enjoying this day because there is a chance of rain everyday this coming week. It rained almost everyday last week. My husband missed two days of work last week because of lightning. I was watching my great nieces and nephew when one of the worst storms came through here. My one great nice Emmy hates storms so I told her the story that I grew up with. I told her that when it thundered it was angels bowling and getting a strike. She said it after me and then said no I think they are falling down. It's amazing what they come up with but I kept her concentrated on something else and she didn't focus on the storm at all. Things you do for the little ones.

Let's get the baker's twine. I have heard of this for scrapbooking but never used it. Didn't really know what to do with it. I should have checked you tube. Bugaboo Digi Stamps is our great sponsor this week. They are currently working on their home page but you can still shop their. Another great thing is they have Freebie Friday. You can sign up for their newsletter or just visit there every Friday. I definitely love the digital stamp they let me use. It is called Edward Springtime. The elephant in the image was what drew me in on this one. Let me tell you about the great prize they are giving.

I'm going to show you my card now with the stamp called "Edward Springtime."


Is this not the cutest thing that you have ever seen. I didn't have little chicks to add on to the card. The elephant that I had was bigger then the one on the card so they are with other friends. I just wanted every animal to have a friend to go with them. it still looks OK though. I will tell you the items that I used to make this cute card.

ROBYN'S FETISH CHALLENGE #258 "PASTEL COLORS"


Happy Easter!! I hope your holiday weekend has been going good and hope you get to spend today with family and friends. Most of our family is sick with some kind of virus so everyone stayed home. My kids treated it like it was just another day and spent time with their friends. My husband was the one that was sick in our family. I know I will have it before this is all done.

Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More is sponsoring our challenge this week. I hope you didn't miss the reveal of all the new Easter images she has in her store. There are 19 new images and they are very pretty. Hope you seen the reveal but if you didn't you can go to Robyn's store and see them. Another great thing is that the whole month of April we are having a sale that gives you 40% off all images. There is a lot of great things going on at the store. 

Since we could use one of Robyn's images for this Pastel Colors challenge I used the one called "Roses With All Our Prayers." I new I wanted the roses to be pastel in color and some flowered paper to go with it. I used a light colored purple cardstock to use with the saying and the images. Then I added an angel since it seemed like it was a sympathy card. So here is the prize Robyn is giving to the one lucky winner.

3 Images

NEW EASTER DIGITAL STAMPS AT ROBYN'S FETISH DIGITAL STAMPS AND MORE


Happy Monday morning!! I told you yesterday that there would be a special post today and here it is. Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More has 19 brand new Easter Digital Images. These new digital stamps will be available on March 30 in Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More. These are very cute digital stamps that you would love to have for your Easter Cards. Our design team each had two digital images to make any kind of project with the images they were able to use. You will definitely want to go to Robyn's store to see these new images and what projects we all made with them.

The two images that I used are called "Hannah Bunny & Basket of Eggs." I decided to so something very different with my images. I first took both images and made them horizontal from the other. I wanted to make sure they matched when I put them back to back. I then colored all the images. Each two were colored the same so when it turned around it looked like you were just looking at one. I lamented so the images would not fall apart because they will be outside. Then I took eggs and the images and put them together with fishing string and put rocks in the eggs so they would not blow away. I hope you have an idea of what I did. I made Easter Egg Ornaments for my tree outside. The unfortunate part was that it was so windy when I went to put them on the tree they did blow away. I took a picture of them hanging inside just so you could see them. I will have to find a way to get them to stay on there. I could also make garland with them also.

Here is a picture of the ornaments that I made


I wanted to make more so there was an equal amount of eggs and eggs with the digital images. I really hope you liked the project I came up with. You will definitely want to go to Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More to see what the design team came up with and to see these Wonderful Images we are revealing today.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a Great week and I will see you soon.

ROBYN'S FETISH CHALLENGE #257 "EASTER CARDS"


Good Morning!! Hope you are having a great weekend. I had a terrific day yesterday. There was a big Memories Scrapbooking Expo. When they said it was big they meant big. I have never seen so much scrapbooking items in my whole life. It was so nice seeing things I never seen before and a lot of the booths had examples of the items they were selling. You were aloud to take photo's of the examples so you had them to look at when you wanted to use what you bought. I had money to spend and my husband had to buy me a big tote to haul it all around the building in. I have to say I was glad I saved as much money as I did. I have many things to try and I'm so excited to get to it. I only wish I had more money but my husband was getting tired. We had been there over three hours when I ran out of money. I think he was glad that I did. I hope you have one of these near you sometime. It was so much fun. Enough about my great Saturday. Let's get to what you want to know.

Who does not like Easter and making cards for the holiday. Finding Easter items is my only downfall when it comes to making things. So, Dragonsmoore, Spyder's Other Corner is our sponsor for this week's challenge. They let me use a cute image called "Run Bunny Run." I loved this image. There was a lot of detail in the image and I thought of Peter Cottontail when I started coloring. They have been great sponsors to Robyn's Fetish. I have made many card with their images. I will show you my card after I tell you the prize they are giving.

5 Digital Stamps
From
Dragonsmoore, Spyder's Other Corner Store

Now I want to show you my card that I called "Here Comes Peter Cottontail"


Doesn't that Bunny look like he is coming down the trail. It made sense to call this card "Here Comes Peter Cottontail." I brightened it up so you could see the detail and all the little things on here. Here are my items that I used to make this card.

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio
Paper -- My Paper Stash
Bunnies, Eggs, Easter Basket Embellishments -- Dress It Up
Font -- Harrington
Lace -- My Stash
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

I do hope that you have enjoyed the Easter Card and the post. I'm going to spend my day looking through my new things and I hope you have something great to do today also. Hope you have a wonderful week and I will see you again. Make sure you come back tomorrow for a special post that I will have on here.

ROBYN'S FETISH CHALLENGE #256 "ADD A BOW"


Good Morning. Welcome to the first weekend of Spring. I know a lot of people are real excited for this season to arrive. I will just miss the snow. I do have some exciting news from the home front. My daughter went to get her temps yesterday and she passed. She is bouncing off the walls and wants to know when we are going to start teaching her to drive. We didn't do it yesterday because this week has been very hectic and we are taking the weekend off from going anywhere. I feel so old now that my last child is getting her license. Then there will be the dating and off to college before we know it. I have had kids my whole life since I graduated high school and don't know what I will do without them. I'm sure I will figure it out when the time comes.

Well this week we have a great challenge and it's easy to do. Just add a bow to your project. You can find many things to add a bow to. I was lucky and found a beautiful ribbon to make a bow from that matched my card perfectly. The image that I used this week is from Fresh Brewed Designs. You  should see the cute images that she has for Easter. You will want to win this challenge and get one of those Easter images. The image that I used from their store is called "Banana's Over You." It's two monkeys sitting at a table drinking out of the same milkshake. This image reminds my of those old ice cream shoppes. Before I show you my card I want to tell you what Fresh Brewed Designs is giving to one lucky winner.

3 Digital Stamps
or
A $10.00 Digital Stamp Card
From The Fresh Brewed Designs Store

Great Prize if you ask me. Banana's Over You is my image and here is my card to show you what it looks like. See if you think it looks like one of those ice cream shoppes.


This is such a cute image and the paper that I found to make the card worked perfectly. I tried to make the straws look like the older ones but couldn't get it to work so they are just plain red. Here are the items that I used to make this card.

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio & DCWV (Nana's Kitchen)
Cupcake Embellishments -- The Paper Studio (Knick Knacks)
Banana's & Ice Cream Cones -- Dress It Up
Bow -- Ribbon Boutique (Couture Ribbon)
Pop-Ups -- The Paper Studio (Sticky Doos)
Colored Markers

Wow. Looks like there is more there then what I used. I wanted to make sure you knew where everything came from. I enjoyed making this one and coloring the image. Well lets see what you can do. Just enter over at Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and when you are there look at the other design teams creations. Let them know what you think of them. I will see you in a week and I hope it's a great one for you.

ROBYN'S FETISH CHALLENGE #255 "PURPLE AND GREEN"


Hello to everyone who is reading this. Hopefully your morning is off to a good start. I'm not doing to bad so far. It's still the old laundry day and other to do things to do day. I did have a nice Saturday night though. The kids were on their gadgets and my husband and I was just watching the TV. Well we gathered the kids and had a "Watch a movie night with the family." Of course, you get I'm texting or something else. They came in and actually laughed through the movie. I think they liked it but won't admit it. When they grow up and have families they will understand why I like doing things with them now. Then they will understand why these little things mean to me.

Let's get to this week's sponsor. It is Anne's Digital Art. She has an etsy store with all kinds of cute images. I was able to use her cute digital image "Grand Kids At The Swimming Hole." These are frogs that are swimming as their Grandmother is watching them. I just love these little frogs. I just realized when I was working on this one that I have done other cards with frogs. I may like them more then I thought. I did have fun coloring this image of the swimming hole. Before I show you these little things let me tell you about the prize Anne's Digital art is giving one lucky winner.

4 Digital Stamps

Anne's Digital Art Store

I'm now going to show you the card that I made with the frogs.
