~Bouquet Chick

Monday morning rolls around so quickly when you've had a busy weekend!  Oh well, it was a wonderful weekend none the less! So that being said, now that it is Monday, we have a brand new sketch with a tWiSt for you over at From The Heart Stamps!  

 This week I have used the sketch only but the tWiSt is to make your card Monochromatic.  You can use the sketch and the tWiSt or just one or the other...whatever floats your boat!

Before we get too far here, I just wanted to let you know that we have a little something special going on this month.  For the month of January, since are not having blog hop, each designer will be giving away $10 gift voucher to the FTHS store! Awesome right....so you won't know who or when, but be sure to visit the challenge blog for hints:-)  

My card features some new papers from CTMH, that's the reason I didn't use the tWiSt!  They are called Confetti and I have also used some purple shimmer trim from CTMH as well along with lavender Stickles  and an embossing folder but I forget what company.  The image is called Bouquet Chick and can be found in the FTHS store.

Challenge Rules:
ONLY “From the Heart Stamps” images are to be used for our challenges !
When posting to your blog, please include the sketch in your post and link back to this post.
EVERYONE who enters will receive $1 to FromTheHeartStamps.com.
Use it as a discount, or save them up to earn a free stamp.

Hope to see your card!

~Hold Me Fairy Close

 Here is my second late card...this one is for our Add Some Sparkle challenge over at Di's Digis!  I have used the super cute Hold Me Fairy Close as my image and the super sketch #41 from Sweet Sketch Wednesday2

Our sponsor this time around is Crafty Ribbons and they have offered a $10 voucher to the store!

Here is the sketch I used from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2!

I hope you will visit the challenge blog first to see all of the gorgeous DT creations and then enter your card!  you have 2 weeks (a little less now due to my tardiness) to play along!  You do not have to use an image from Di's Digis Stamps but I know if you pop on over you will love them just like I do AND you can win 2 images just for doing so!!

Wishing you a wonderful crafty week!



~Gift For Fairy

 Oh my I am definitely playing catch up with this post!  I missed two design team creations last week and have them done now so I thought I better get them up!  My printer needed ink so I ordered it from Staples on Sunday thinking it should be delivered Monday or Tuesday at the lastest....ummmm...no....Thursday night they were shipping it out again for Friday or Monday...it didn't come Friday and then we were gone for the weekend to a skating competition for my daughter.  On on the good side, I was in the city and went ot Staples and picked up the ink that I needed and will hopefully have another set tomorrow....if they show up!  So that's the reason for my late cards!

 This one is for the Birthday challenge over on my challenge blog Creative Knockouts.  Our wonderful sponsor is Sami Stamps and they have offered a $12 gift certificate to the store for one lucky winner.  On top of that, I was able to choose an image to work with and it's called Gift For Fairy. 

I have used the fun sketch #344 over at Sketch Saturday for my layout and some older but pretty papers from CTMH.  Added some glitter too-just cause:-)
Come and join us at Creative Knockouts for a fun Birthday challenge...and your chance to win $12 to Sami Stamps!

~Winter Dog Walk

Oh gosh, how can I tell it's the first week back to school after two glorious weeks off.....I forgot to actually hit publish on this post!

Monday is here and that means we have a brand new sketch with a tWiSt for you over at From The Heart Stamps!  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas break!

Our tWiSt this week is to use textured paper and I have just added a small piece but ran it though my Cuddlebug with a snowflake folder.  My image is called Winter Dog Walk and I have paired it with some fun papers called Snowhaven from CTMH!

I hope you'll come and have a look at the rest of the design team's cards as they are wonderful and then enter your creation!  You can use the sketch AND the tWiSt or just one or the other is fine as well! 

Wishing you a wonderful week!
