Good Morning to all. Hope your Easter weekend was a great one. It's always nice to spend it with family and friends. 

Our challenge this week was a cute one. Who doesn't like furry friends. I know I do. I have two dogs and three cats. I would have a lot more if I lived in the country. So the sponsor this week for that lucky winner is The Paper Shelter.

They will be giving  away as the prize a $20.00 Gift Certificate. That is a great prize to try and win. 

I was able to used this cute little fuzzy dog and I made it into a Birthday card. It's a Birthday card for a little card. So let me show you the card I made with the dog.

I hope you like it and the image that The Paper Shelter let me use. Let me tell you all the items that I used to make this card.

Hope your Easter morning is going great and the rest of the day is even better. We are not doing anything today. Our family is not close so we just stay home. That's why I hope you are having a great day with family. Last week I told you about my grand daughter having her 2nd birthday Friday and she had her little party Saturday. She was such a delight to sit and watch all those funny faces she was making as she opened each and every one. You would have thought she was having Christmas with as many gifts that she had. She had more then she needed. It was to the point she was bored with opening them and went for her cake. She never did open those gifts but I'm sure she will get to them to night. Since I was there I went ahead and gave the grandchildren their Easter baskets. That was even more for Remie. It was very cute when she seen the bunny and pulled it out. She gave the bunny a hug and held it while she seen what else was in the bag. It was a great birthday party. I'm going to move forward and start the challenge we are here for.

As we can see we are doing square cards. I don't do many of these because you can't get every thing you want on that one card. Of course, that could just be me. The sponsor this week is one we had before and they have great images. They are Fred, She Said Designs. Take a look at what they have because the image I was so kindly to use is called Morpho-Marigolds. I only found two colors of marigolds so I made the butterfly very bright and colorful. I did an image a long time ago with a butterfly frame from Fred, She Said and it turned out beautiful also.  You should go and see the images if you get a chance. Well, let me tell you what they are offering this week as a prize for the lucky winner this week.

Fred, She Said Designs Store

Now I want to show you my card.

I hope you really like it. I forgot that it was a square card this week and had a cute scrapbook layout I was going to start to do. Thank goodness I went back and seen what the challenge really is. I'm still going to make the layout though. When I get it finished I will show you. The marigolds on this card are in three different color combination of yellows and oranges. I did use three colors to make the butterfly but I did decide to outline it in black to make it stand out more. The saying from above is from Psalm 63:7 but it was on the image sheet that I received with my image. I thought it went perfect for the way my card was set up. Let me give you the items that I used so you can get back to family and friends.

Paper -- DCWV (The Floral Flair)

Wasn't a very big list but I still wanted you to have it. Thank You for spending some time to read my post and as always don't forget to put your entries at The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and take a look at what the other design team members made for this week's challenge.

Hello. Hope you all had a great weekend. It was perfect here. Sunshine and in the 70's. Starting this week though we go back to the middle 40's. We will never have spring here. You have to enjoy every day that you can when it is warm. 

What a great challenge we have for this week. I have to admit that this was a little hard because I love to put a lot of stuff on my cards. I wanted to add so much to this but it had to be clean and simple. That's what I did when I started learning to make cards.

We have a great thing for this week. There are two prizes again. We all know that we love these kind of challenges. Our first sponsor for this challenge is Meljen's Designs

Meljen's Designs is going to give one lucky winner 4 digi's. They have very adorable digi's that I know you would want to win.

The second sponsor is Iva Nova Chest**"Iva Nova Chest" is online store with great choice of Charms, Pendants and Other Jewelry Findings in Malaysia. There is a Goodie Bag Surprise for a lucky winner but this bag is not giving the prize. 

I used an image from Meljen's Designs called Chubby Dragon. He is such a cute dragon that I just had to make something with him. Let me show you the card that I made with him.

Is he not the cutest little thing. I thought the paper looked good with the dragon or dinosaur feet. You can use either way. Let me tell you what this is made with.

What a wonderful Sunday morning. We are definitely having a touch of spring here today. The weather men are saying we will have snow in the middle of the week. This is crazy weather and it is messing with my allergies. We just need the weather to stay the same now. Winter should definitely be over by now. Easter is next weekend and it would be nice to have some great weather. Next weekend is going to be really busy. My grand daughter turns 2 on Friday. Her birthday party is on Saturday and then Easter on Sunday. I also need to figure out how to go to the store to get things but I have no car right now. My husband starts a new job tomorrow and he needs the car. We are looking for something in our price range but we are having a hard time with that. The car has to be so old and the mileage has to be low in order to get a loan. Weird how they do things these days.

Well, I want to move on to the challenge this week because I think it is a great one. I have this cute little image that Just Some Lines let me use. It is called EMO -- Flower Filled Day. She is a cute little girl that is wearing this big hat that is bigger then her. She also has flowers that are in front of her. I can't wait to show you this image. Just Some Lines is our sponsor this week and I love the images there. They are adorable. I hope you will check them out. They are giving a generous prize this week for our lucky winner. I'm sure you would like to know. Here it is.

4 Single Digi's
 The Winner's Choice

Here is the card that I made with EMO -- Flower Filled Day.

I thought she would look adorable in a flower herself. I think every thing turned out great and matched perfectly. I am a little impressed with this one. Let me tell you about the items that I used to make this card.

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- From My Paper Stash

Well we are at the end of another Sunday challenge. You just have to make sure your image has a hat in it to enter at Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. Have a great Easter and I will have my post up that day also.

Good Morning!! I'm seeing sun and it is beautiful. Just wish the temperature would corporate with the sun. I have some great news to tell you all this week. My daughter who is always on the A & B honor roll made it on the all A honor roll. This is a bright girl that does her homework on her own. We never have to ask her to do it. We always had to with the two boys. My boys are a little mad when I talk about her grades. They were never interested in school so I'm glad they went to career centers their junior and senior year. It payed off because they both have good jobs. You still have to give that congratulations to her and I'm so proud of you. She told me yesterday that she would like to go to college in Florida and I said no way. She then says if she gets a scholarship to go to one down there that there is nothing I could do about it. You have to go where you get the scholarship is. There still is no way. She has four years for me to change her mind. 

Well, lets get to the challenge at hand. We are all doing Easter cards and we are getting our images from The GreatRobyn is our sponsor for this week's challenge. She always has great images to work with. The image I chose this week is called Easter Egg. I seen this and thought of a cute card. Cut the card out as an Easter Card. I only did something like this once before so I thought it would be fun to do again. Here is the prize that she will be giving the lucky winner this week.

3 Images

This is a great and generous prize from Robyn. Now let me show you my shape Easter egg card.

How do you think it turned out? I think the glitter really set it off. It just seemed to plain without it. I really liked the shape of the card. Just something that's different then I usually make. Here are the items that I made this with.

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Stickles -- Ranger (Yellow, Green, X-Mas Red, Crystal Ice)
Colored Markers

Not many items but it did the job. Well, it's time for me to go and do some cleaning around the house. Please go to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and see the cards that the rest of our Design Team Made. Post your entries there also. Have a wonderful Sunday and a great week. I'm going to try to.

Here we are with another Monday challenge. These type of challenges are fun to do. Everyone will have something different from the board. Let me show you the board that we used and then I will tell you which line I used. 

Look on this board. There is a free space so you didn't need to do three items on your card. I chose to use the top line straight across. When I picked my image from Limited Runs  Stamps I knew what I wanted to do. The image that I used was called Garden and I want to say Thank You Nikki for letting me use this image. Limited Runs Stamps is one of our sponsors this week and they are giving one lucky winner a choice of three digi's from there store.

You are lucky this week because we have two sponsors this week. Yeah!! Two winner's this week so twice the chance of winning some digi's. This is great for you. So you see that Limited Runs Stamps is one sponsor and the second sponsor is Polka Doodles.

Polka Doodles is giving a winner of this challenge four digi's. Someone is going to be lucky this week. I love that there are two winner's. I'm sure you are to. So let me show you the card that I made with "Garden."

So, I hope you see the three items are that I used. I will tell you anyway. The yellow is the paper under the Celebrate Today. The pearls are on the cupcakes and then you can see the lace at the bottom. I will now tell you what items I used to make this card.
