Good Morning!!! I hope you are all having a great beginning to your weekend!!!

Lucky me, I have not had a wink of sleep due to two sick little girls. While they have symptoms of a cold, they also have a fever making them sick to their stomachs. I have decided to not even attempt to go back to bed until my husband is up for the day. I don't know about you but I get bad headaches and it gives me nausea when I am woken up from a sound sleep. Hopefully they get over being sick quickly and I don't get it. This came on rather suddenly.

Well today is Saturday and it is time for another Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential Challenge. We as a team had such a good time looking at all the creations submitted for the "repeatedly useful" challenge.

Now on to this week's Challenge:

This week's challenge is to use your own stamps to make a "masterboard" or your own designer paper to create several cards/projects at once (you only need to show us one creation that displays part of your masterboard). This is a great opportunity to make headway on your Christmas cards, completing several at once with one masterboard.

Each of the design team members was provided digi's by Digital Ink Co.
I, this weeks sponsor. The random winner this week will have the chance to choose three digital stamp sets from their store. I chose to use this penguin for a get well easel card. My Masterboard was created using the Snow Swirled Stamp set from SU. The snowflakes by the penguin are created using the Martha Stewart Border punch. The sentiment says: "Sorry you are feeling under the Weather." and "Feel Better Soon!" Their is no designer paper on this card. The cardstock is Pacific point dry embossed with the snowflakes folder. The snowflakes scattered are snowflake stickers from K and Co.

I hope you have enjoyed today's creation and that it inspires you to create a master board of your own for this challenge. For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters:

Should you create a card or project with a master board, please:

Be sure to place the DIRECT link to your creation in Mister Linky below in order to qualify to win the prize from our sponsors or voting for the top 3 creations.
If you upload your creation to an on-line gallery, please be sure to label it with the keywords SSHP07. Please Link your creation back to the Saturday Spotlight Challenge blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments!! I so enjoy reading them all!!! Have a great weekend!!!
