Some awesome news from Woodware USA—
My card today uses a beautiful set by Woodware USA called A Winter’s Day. It is so beautiful, and it was really fun to color. I think I must base everything now on whether an image is colorable (I know it’s not a word, but it truly conveys what I want to say!).
I have also used some yummy new paper from Basic Grey called Jovial, and I paired it with Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla by Stampin’ Up. I colored the image with Copics, and I used Stickles to accent. The final touch is three buttons and a big luscious bow made with the Bow Easy.

This week’s challenge was to use the digi—Lord of the Harvest in our card. I wanted to keep this card simple…I can seriously run the risk of over embellishing my cards if left to my own devices. I had to reign it in this week and use restraint. I thought the curvy rectangles from Nestabilities would be a perfect shape for my card, along with some dry embossing! I paired the image with Riding Hood Red and Old Olive by Stampin’ Up. I topped off the card with Copic markers and taffeta ribbon from Stampin’ Up. Of course I took out my trusty Bow Easy for the perfect triple bow!!

I used this unloved and uninked stamp from Unity Stamps. The paper is one I also have had laying around that was crying out to be used!! The sentiment is from the Woodware USA set Garden Greetings.
Sorry for the quick post today…life has been extremely hectic here, and I always seem to be playing catchup!
Thanks for stopping by!!

This week’s challenge for Woodware USA is to use GLITTER and BLING in your creations. Well, sometimes I feel like I came out of the womb destined to be glittery! And, the way I find little specks all over my house, I think that I still haven’t lost my glitz!
I have used the adorable set—Penguin Fun for my card today, and it is a fun one! I also coupled it with some marvelous Christmas paper from My Mind’s Eye. I’ve also greatly distressed as many edges as I could! We hope that you will join us and play along!!
In addition, I am entering the above card into two challenges this week:

We hope that you will join us this week, and don't forget to check in at the FBW blog to see who won the fabulous blog candy this week!! I so wish I could've entered!! The challenge this week was to use pink, pink, and more pink. Now, I did flub up the challenge, and I forgot a butterfly...what was I thinking. I hope you can forgive my seriously bad faux pas! However, I was just awed by the cuteness of this little image!!

I decided that my coloring with Copics had gotten a little complacent, so I tried really hard on this one to get the shading just right. I like the way that it came out, and I really enjoyed coloring this new image (to me, at least) from Motivet! It is beautiful, and it combines two of my favorite things...fairies and butterflies!
