We have a wonderful new challenge for you over at Di's Digis stamps!  AND  a fun freebie too!! Our challenge this week is Halloween...pretty fitting I think since it;s right around the corner!

As always, you do not have to use an image from Di's Digis BUT if you do, you could win 2 digis of your choice (non colored) just for doing so!

I sure hope you'll head on over to the challenge blog for a visit- not only will you see the rest of the design team's creations which are fabulous I might add, but the super fun paper freebie that Di created is there as well!

~Gift Stack Birdbrain

Happy Thanksgiving day to all my Canadian friends and family!  We had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration over at my parents yesterday with my family and today we are having my father in law down for supper.   I hope you have had a fantastic weekend as well!  

We are back at Monday and although I really hope I am hugging my pillow still when this goes live (I better be:-), I do have a card to share with your for our new sketch with a tWiSt challenge over at From The Heart Stamps.

 I have used the super cute new image called Gift Stack Birdbrain for my image and paired it with the fun Friend Forest papers by Doodlebug that I still had out from yesterday's card...  The sketch is anohter great one and the tWiSt this time around is to use the sponging technique.  I went with the sketch this time, but you can use the sketch and the tWiSt or just the sketch or just the tWiSt, it's up to you, but you are required to use an image from the FTHS store on your card!

Be sure to check out all the amazing DT creations over on the challenge blog:-)
Have a super Monday everyone and a great week as well!

~Whimsy Garden Fence

Monday is here, man of man did this weekend fly by!!  Kirsten and I had a wonderful weekend playing boardgames and card games and Lance and Landon went to a rodeo and worked on building Landon's 4H pen!  It was a super weekend, just flew by too fast!

From The Heart Stamps has a super new sketch with a tWiSt and I have used both the sketch and th tWiSt.  The sketch is fab by itself but the tWiSt is something I haven't used in forever, so I thought I would play along.  The tWiSt is to use eyelets!

The image I have used is called Whimsy Garden Fence and I have paired it with some Fine & Dandy paper from Echo Park, eyelets from Making Memories (they are in between the image and sentiment...kinda hard to see with the dotty paper but they are there) and some glittery blue thread from We Are Memory Keepers.

So you can use the sketch or the tWiSt or both!!  You must us an image from the store at FTHS, but that;s easy, there are so many fabulous ones and everyone who enters will receive $1 to  You can save it up or use it right away! 

Be sure to pop on over to the blog to check out the rest of the creation from the DT and I also wanted to mention that you still have 2 days left to enter our SOTM challenge as well!
