The Shack is Back!

Hello everyone and Happy Friday!  Woohoo...the weekend is upon us!  I wanted to pop on this morning to announce that THE SHACK IS BACK!  The Digi Shack, that is!  Toni is back in full force and has some new digitals coming out on the 6th!  I'm here to show off a sneaky peek of one of them since I have been asked to stay on as a DT member.  Thanks Toni!

 I used this cuter than cute bunny for my sneak peek.  I like to call him Funny Bunny since he makes me laugh.  Along with that I used the sketch over at Card Patterns.  It really didn't come out like I envisioned, but not every card of mine is a is original though.  LOL!

Don't forget that these images will be released at The Digi Shack's new home (link will be provided later...we're being SNEAKY) on March 6th!  Be sure to come back for an awesome blog hop!  :O)

Doodle Dragon Studios Challenge #4

Good morning/afternoon everyone!  Happy Sunday!  I'm here today with your bi-weekly Doodle Dragon Studios Challenge!  This week our teamie, Kerri, has challenged us to make any DDS dragon girly!  Dragons are girls too, ya know?  :O)

I thought this was too fun!  I used the dragon riding a carousel horse for my image.  Of course she had to be pink, but I also added a bow to her head and tiny eyelashes too.  I don't know if you can see it or not, but the eyelashes really made it look like a girl to me.  :O)
We would love to see what you come up with!  Our challenges last for 2 weeks so everyone has a chance to play...that means you have until March 6th to add your DIRECT link to Mr. Linky on the challenge blog!  Can't wait to see your girly dragons!

Mouse says to the Turtle...Get Well!

As promised, I'm back with some cuteness for today!  ;O)  How is your weekend going so far?  Hubby and I just made chimichangas for dinner and it was yummo! 

I made this sweet Get Well card using another of Karen's Doodles digital stamps.  Such fun, eh? The turtle's name is Herbert and the darling nurse is Bigsby.  Don't you just love these little guys?  I had the worst time trying to photograph this card...the color is all washed out and it happened on every single photo!  UGH!  I hate that!  My dear hubby bought me this new MS border punch last night...thanks babe!
Have a fantabulous rest of the weekend!  I'll be back tomorrow with another Doodle Dragon Studios challenge post!  :O)

Final Twilight Tuesday Challenge

Good morning everyone!  I have my final Twilight Tuesday challenge for you, along with a sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches and the Cupcake Craft Challenge to keep it simple.

Rebecca  says:
Creative portion:  Create a project that uses printed text: a page from a magazine, book, dictionary, etc. within your project, as the background or focal point.
Comment Portion: I love to read the newspaper online but nothing beats a printed newspaper on Sunday mornings. And no matter how hard I try, I can’t abandon books (hardcover, softcover, or paperback) to a digital reader. Are you totally digital or do you prefer a good old fashioned printed page in your hands?”
I am all about the printed books...I would rather have it in my hands reading.  Great for soaks in the tub, before bed time, waiting at the doctor's office.  I know you can do all that with a Kindle (or whatever else), but I love the printed word.  ;O)
I'll be back later with yet another post!   I'm a busy girl today!  :O)

DT Search & Blog Candy!

I just wanted to pop on to make sure everyone know that Amy at Paper Romance is having a DT Call and yummo Blog Candy too! 
Be sure to visit her blog HERE to find out the deets!  Call out and candy end tomorrow...sorry for the lateness!

Motivet Sketch Challenge

 Happy Saturday everyone!  I hope your weekend is off to a wonderful start, I know mine is!  I made the mistake of finding some new-ish stamps to me...Motivet.  I am fairly certain I have seen some of these cuties on TGF before, maybe.

They had this adorable kitty as a digi freebie and I knew I had to play with him today.  Motivet's challenge this week is a sketch.  I was a bit apprehensive when I first saw it, but I think I worked it out.  What do you think?

I hope you like this naughty little kitty!  Have a great weekend and Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!!

Flutter By Wednesday #96

Good morning everyone!  I am feeling better today, thank goodness!  I was having a bit of coloring withdrawal!  :O)  It's Wednesday and time for Flutter By Wednesday #96!  This week's challenge is to create something with a love theme, however you perceive it.  You MUST use a butterfly, fairy or angel!

I used a CC Designs digi image...Nurse Nora.  It was supposed to say I'm the Love Doctor, but this is how she ended up.  I figure you have to love someone to want to take care of them, so...

I hope you enjoy my card this week! Be sure to check out the rest of the design team's creations! Ann, Cassie, Chris, Christine, Danni, Harriet, Heather, Jodi, Karen, Kimberly, Kris, Kristie, Michelle, Nancy, Nicola & Pam.
