Fabulous Friday Challenge ~ Butterflies & Birds

Hello bloggers!! TGIF!!
It's time for another Fabulous Friday Challenge over at Frosted Designs. The theme for the challenge this week is Butterflies and Birds.

I decided to create a mailbox and matching tin with a little scrapbook in it as a gift for my Niece's birthday. I added a butterfly to the mailbox on the heart which ended up being the perfect embellie for it. And the tin has the Butterfly Kisses embellie.

I filled the mailbox with all kinds of goodies any 5 year old would love! And made the pull out scrapbook of my son and Niece together the last time we saw them. It turned out so cute!!

I hope you'll join in the fun with our challenge this week. We have a wonderful prize for one lucky winner. To see some incredible inspiration just check out the DT samples on the Frosted Designs Blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
Wishes for a great day!!

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge ~ Magnolia-licious!

The challenge this week at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge is MAGNOLIA-licious!  In honor of our April sponsor, create a card or project with one of the ever so precious Magnolia stamps.

Oh you guys I had such a hard time with this challenge. *raises hand* I must admit I stink at coloring!! I mean down right stink at it. And that lays the foundation of the whole card if you ask me. However!! They don't call these challenges for nothing.

So... I put on my big girl panties, sat down, and got to work. I actually found it fun getting out of my comfort zone and creating something out of the norm for me. And I hope you decide to take a stab at it too. Because SSC has some wonderful prizes this week. The DT have created such beautiful masterpieces for this challenge. I am in total awe of them all. To check it all out just visit the SSC Challenge Blog.

Stay tuned for a fun project that I will be posting on Friday! Thank you for stopping by. I truly appreciate the time you spend here with me. Wishing you a great day!

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge ~ Buttons, Bling, & Bloom

Hello Girls!!

Today marks the first challenge for me with the Stamptacular Sunday DT.
Actually my project should have been posted yesterday. But I was on spring break vacation and forgot to schedule my post. That's when you know your plate is too full!!

The challenge this week over at SSC is "Buttons, Bling, & Bloom". You must include buttons, some bling, and flowers on your project. Don't forget to stamp too! Here is the fun card I came up with.

I loved working with these colors and this paper. The paper was given to me as a prize by Frost It Pink. I love their online store and shop there often. Shipping is fast and they have the best inventory. But best of all they do a drawing every month from people who have placed an order to win a huge prize package. It's awesome.

Speaking of prizes... the challenge this week at SSC is sponsored by Magnolia Stamps, and Simon Says Stamp. Both of our sponsors have donated wonderful prizes. So what are you waiting for? Go make that project and upload your entry for your chance to win!!

The SSC DT have created amazing projects this week. Please stop by to check out their awesome inspiration at the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Wishes for a terrific day!
