Let's Show Off A Snow Bunny Ethereal Enchantress




Wow, I have been busy, busy, busy posting this week!  Now I have my Lacy Sunshine hat on and I'm here to tell you about our new challenge at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog. Christmas is fast approaching, so, this round, we want to see your creations with the theme of North Pole.  Think things like Candy Canes, Snow, Snowflakes, Winter, etc.) Anything that reminds you of the North Pole.  Easy one this time, isn't it? Create something and come link up with us at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog, for a chance to win! You have two weeks to play along with us! Don't miss out!

Oh, Oh and have you heard about and/or seen the new Ethereal Enchantresses line from Lacy Sunshine? If not, you really need to check them out! They are so awesome!  Another fabulous line of images from Heather Valentin, available, now, in the Lacy Sunshine shop!

Speaking of Ethereal Enchantresses, my card uses the new Ethereal Enchantress image, Snow Bunny Ethereal Enchantress, from Lacy Sunshine. I used a fun candy cane print paper, as well as other North Pole and Winter themed papers, all from my stash. My card uses the sketch at Sketch N Stash. The top right and bottom left corners of the image have been embellished with snowflake die cuts, with attached metal swirls. I added glitter to the image to add sparkle and shine.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

My Friend, My Partner, My Love - Thank You





I'm back, again, already! Are you tired of seeing me, yet?! This time, I want to tell you abut our new challenge at Open Minded Crafting. Just in time for Thanksgiving, we have the perfect challenge. Our challenge them, this fortnight, is "Grateful." We want to see your creations of gratitude, whether it be Thanksgiving or just a general thank you card. Anything you can think of, to show gratitude or to give thanks.  You have two weeks to play along with us, so surely you can fit us into your holiday festivities, right?!

We always have lots of awesome prizes up for grabs, too, and this time is no exception!  Create and link up with us, for your chance to win goodies from these oh so generous sponsors:

















Oh, I'm sure you want to hear the nitty gritty details about my card while you're here, too, don't you? I hope so, because I'm going to tell you about it! LOL!

I went with a thank you/love card, this time. My card Uses the image, Flowery Bride Mon Amour,from The East Wind, colored with Promarkers. This card would be great to say thank you to that special love in your life, or could be used, also, as a wedding card to your new husband. For my card layout, I've used the sketch at Seems A Little Sketchy. I wanted to add some color, so I went with shades of pink red with black and a touch of purple.  (After all, everything is better with a little - or a lot - of purple!) I trimmed the image at a funky angle to add a fun twist to the card layout.  Plus, it made a great place for me to stagger my sentiment.  I love how it turned out.

I am entering this card in the following Challenges:

Wow can you believe Turkey Day is just around the corner?! It'll be here before you know it? I can already practically taste that yummy turkey, that homemade stuffing and mashed potatoes..... Mmm making me hungry! Speaking of Thanksgiving and being hungry, have you checked out our new photo inspiration challenge at Catch The Bug?! It's sure to make you feel the festivities of thanksgiving... It may even make you hungry, too, so consider yourself warned! LOL.  We'd love if you'd come over, check out the inspiration photo, and play along with us.

As always, there are awesome Bugaboo Stamps digi prize packs up for grabs.  Yours to create with and enjoy, if you're one of the lucky winners.  Hurry on over to Catch The Bug to play along!

My card uses the image, AKV Thanksgiving - Turkey, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. All papers are from my stash. I just love how the plaid/stripes fit in with the other papers. This is the perfect male card for Thankgiving. Nice and simple, not girlie.
