ROBYN'S FETISH CHALLENGE #243 "CHRISTMAS TAGS"


Hope everyone is having a Good Sunday morning. I'm getting off to a slow start but after a few cups of coffee I should be good as new. I still have shopping to do today and I have not even wrapped my first present yet. Now that my daughter is out of school maybe she can help me because I'm still sick from last week. I hope I start feeling better because my son and his new girlfriend has invited us to dinner on Christmas Eve. This is a first for us as parents to have one of our children to have us over for dinner. This is all they had to give us for Christmas. I don't have to cook the meal this year. Wonder what it's going to feel like not cooking. I might be lost.

Christmas tags is a very rare challenge but it's great to make your own special tag to give to someone special in your life. Oak Pond Creations is our sponsor this week. She has very cute images for you to look at and even buy some to make your own tags. I chose the image "Reindeer." Something different then making a more Santa Clauses. I did enjoy making this and I have that special person that I want to give it to you. The reindeer from Oak Pond Creations is really adorable. The antlers was the first thing I saw and thought they were so neat. You will have to see them. So, let's get to the prize so I can show you my tag.

ROBYN'S FETISH CHALLENGE #242 "WINTER CARDS WITH GLITTER"


Rise and Shine!! It's now time for our Sunday challenge of the week. It's been to warm here to feel like winter but it's not stopping the flu and colds from spreading around. My son was sick and of course he is here every day with me. So, of course, he decided to share so when I think I'm getting better I now have one of the worst sinus infections ever. I have not been well enough to get a flu shot that would at least help somewhat. This has thrown me off my schedule of getting all my stuff done before Christmas. My husband is actually going to put the tree up and get the ornaments on it. I'm so glad someone can get that done. Now let's get to this week's challenge

Broken Box Stock is our sponsor this week. They have great images and also have clip-art, vector graphics and freebies. When you get time you should check them out. I was lucky to work with their digital image "Sled Ride Toodle." She is a cute little girl sitting on her sled. I tried to find a way for her to look like she was coming down a hill but it didn't work. So I do hope you like what I did with the image. But first, let's see what Broken Box Stock is giving the winner.

3 Digital Stamps (Except Sets)
From 

Her is Sled Ride Toodle herself.


I hope you like her. The star paper is all silver. Every time I took the picture the stars came out different colors but they are all silver. I just then used different shapes and put them around the paper. I put more on then I thought because the sentiment that I had didn't fit. But here is what I did use.

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart & Core' dinations
Paper -- The Paper Studio & The Silver Is From My Stash
Rhinestones -- Craftaloo
Glitter -- Ranger (Crystal Ice)
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

Well I'm done for today. I need some rest so I can get better. Hope you all are well and warm. See you next Sunday here for

ROBYN'S FETISH CHALLENGE #241 "CHRISTMAS CARDS"


Welcome to the first weekend of December. This really makes it feel like it's Christmas and the thought of not having your shopping done starts to worry you. Well my husband and I decided to get started on some shopping done yesterday. We really did get some of the shopping done but by time we returned home I could not move. All the gifts are still in the trunk except the ones we were afraid might burst with the cold outside. I did find something really cute that I don't think I have ever seen before. Pink Christmas wrapping paper. The store had a little bit of a variety but this color will be cute on my grand daughters gifts. Not a real gift but it put a smile on my face. I won't bore you with all the things but I think I will do more through the week by myself with less confusion. 

Well, we are lucky again this week. Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps & More is sponsoring us for our Christmas cards this week. We get to use one of her great images to use for our cards. So, the image that I chose was Christmas trees. There are two trees side by side with snow on them. I thought the trees was something different that I don't think I have done. This is the great prize that she will be giving that winner this week.

So here is my card that I made.


I do hope that you like the way I made my card. I was trying to go with a the focus on the trees but also wanted to add a traditional look. I wanted to make a tree farm but couldn't sketch it out where it looked good. To much on my mind this week I think. This is the items that I did use to make this Christmas tree card.

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- From My Stash & Caroline Wilson Fine Arts
Buttons, Angel, Presents, Gingerbread Man -- Dress It Up
Glitter -- Ice Stickles by Ranger (Crystal Ice)
Colored Markers

Well I'm going to go and relax a little before starting laundry. I'm still wore out from yesterday. I know you will want to add your Christmas card so just go to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and add it there. Also, we have a great design team so check out their cards also. Enjoy your week and I'm going to try and get more shopping done.

This is a really great prize for one of you to win this week. So, with these three penguins I decided to make and easel card that was different then I have been doing for a little while. I want to give my card a little change. So here is "Three Party Penguins."


Are those penguins not precious. I had a snowflake edge punch that I used a the top and put some glitter on the snowflakes all over the rest of the card. I went through my box of embellishments and found the tree and the jingle bells saying. Just thought it was a good choice for the sentiment. Here are the items that I used to make this easel card. I also want to Thank Edwina from our design team for helping me with the measurements that I did forget to make one of these cards.

ROBYN'S FETISH CHALLENGE #239 "USE A DIGI"


Good Morning on this cold and icy Sunday. It's not a great thing to wake up and there is ice on the steps and sidewalks. When I let my dog out she was having a hard time standing on the stoop that she fell down to the first step. Yes, I laughed at her but she did get back up. She went straight into the house. This is something that I probably won't ever see again. With everything I have been going through I needed that little laugh. Thank goodness for my pets. They always amuse me.

I have been able to keep up on making my cards. This week I was able to use a digi from Fred, She Said Designs. I used "Christmas Ornament" from their Christmas section of their store. They have 41 images in their Christmas section. That's enough to make many Christmas cards that you can give to your family and friends. The ornament that I used was perfect with the Christmas paper that I had bought last year for my Christmas cards.Before I show you my ornament let me tell you what Fred, She Said Designs will be giving to that lucky winner

ROBYN'S FETISH CHALLENGE #238 "THINGS WITH WINGS"


Hello on this early Sunday morning. Have you seen any snow yet where you live. We have been having flurries but tonight we are suppose to get 2 - 4 inches tonight into tomorrow. I love the snow and this is my favorite season but I'm not ready for snow days from the schools. I am grateful that it's going to hit this evening. My grandson's birthday party starts at noon. It's hard to believe that he is five already. Next year he will be in kindergarten. I still remember the day that his father was starting his kindergarten year. The bus didn't pick him up the first day and he was upset. It's funny how I remember these things but my kids don't. They think I'm telling them stories all the time.

Although it's close to the winter season my card is a summertime card. I think it turned out good if I say so myself. Delicious Doodles is our sponsor this week. If you visit their site they have a new beautiful Poppy Wreath that is new on their site. I was so grateful that they let me use the image "Daisies and Butterflies." When I picked this I new exactly what paper that I wanted to use. This image is really pretty and I enjoyed making it look like my own. Delicious Doodles is also giving away this following prize.

4 Digital Doodles

Let me show you how the paper and the image look together. I hope you think that everything looks good together.


I tried to make my daisies look like the ones on the paper. They look a little darker when it's in front of you. These embellishments were perfect for this card also. I do like when everything comes together. Here are the items that I used to make this "Daisies and Butterflies" card.

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- K &Company
Lace -- From My Stash
Butterfly Embellishments -- K & Company
Pop-Ups -- Ranger
Colored Markers

I hope this was an interesting post for you. This is an easy card to make with the items above. give it a try and let me know how you did. I would really like you to go to The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and see the other designers cards that has Wings and Things. You can also enter your card there to. I can't wait to see your cards. I hope you enjoy your day and for those that are suppose to get the snow, Enjoy!!!!

ROBYN'S FETISH CHALLENGE #236 "THANKSGIVING"


Good Morning!! Hope everyone's Sunday is getting off to a good start. Did everyone ( who has to ) remember to turn your clocks back? I did but my husband takes care of changing them all. The first week of a time change for me is miserable. It throws off my schedule really bad. I don't know why it does but it certainly does. I really am not looking forward to it getting dark so early at night. I'm not a good night driver so I don't go to many places that I do in the summer. Well hope you all enjoy it.

We have our great Robyn that is sponsoring us this week with our Thanksgiving cards. I some times think Thanksgiving is a forgotten holiday. First you have Halloween and then boom, Christmas takes over. Robyn let us use an image from her Thanksgiving images. I chose "Pilgrim Gal." She is a cute little gal just standing there looking like she can't remember what's next to do. How do you keep up on this holiday? Robyn will be giving the winner of this challenge

Let me show you the card that I made with "Pilgrim Gal."


I know that I don't ave food on here but thought the sentiment was great for Thanksgiving. I love this paper that I found and wanted to use an orange that matched the paper. I did add the sunflowers to make it look more like a fall card. I don't know why but I can't seem to get the sentiment to come out not being blurry. I'm still working on it to see what I'm doing wrong. This may be the time to get out my photography book and do some reading. Here are the items I used to make this card. 

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart & The Paper Studio
Paper -- The Paper Studio
Sentiment -- From A Site On The Internet (Forgot To Write It Down)
Sunflowers -- Paper Wishes
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

Well I finished another post and it's on the first weekend of November. October was not here very long. Let's see how fast this month goes. I hope you enjoyed my card and make sure you take a look at the other design teams cards here at The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. There are great cards for Thanksgiving. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and have a Wonderful Week
