Happy Friday!! Today is the new Challenge for Wags n Whiskers. Today's challenge is to create a card using buttons. My card is using the Ride Em Ryan image from Wags N Whiskers. I saw several posts about a little boy named Noah who is suffering with an illness and has only a few weeks to live. His family is celebrating Christmas now and Noah's wish is to receive several Christmas cards. I hope he likes this easel card. I colored it with Prisma color pencils and gamsol. The dp is from SU Ski Slope (retired from last year) and the Parisian Breeze Testured Dp from SU (also retired). The background of the image is dry embossed using the Distressed stripes folder.

Lori sent us each this image as our inspiration from the Pottery Barn. I was inspired by the colors, bowl of apples and the paneled wall.

Sorry about posting later than normal again, My computer is completely shutdown from a horrid virus and needs to go to Best Buy for repair. I was told I would not have it back for a week to 10 days. Ughhhhhhhh!!!! I am relying using a friend's computer for my posts and need to work around her schedule or thank goodness for my friend Grace who has been helping me with my posts. Grace, I do not know what I would do without you my friend.
I am trying to post as I am able and blog surf when friend's time allows. It is hard to work on someone elses schedule as well as my own. Thanks for your patience!!! I will be back tomorrow with the Wags n Whiskers Challenge.
Just wanted to let you know that Danni's Flutter By Wednesday Challenge is still on... I am just posting a quick card that includes an angel for today's challenge.
This weeks challenge is open and you only need to make a card with a fairy, butterfly or angel. Should you create a card or project for this challenge, please leave a direct link on my linky here. The stampsets used are the Angel and Blessed Christmas sets from Our Daily Bread Designs.
The paper is also from Our Daily Breads SEI paper.
I made this shadow box for this week's Sisters in Christ Challenge which was to create a shadow box.
Thanks for stopping by. Sorry for my absence. I am so missing my computer. Right now it is deader than a doornail. I hope to get someone to look at it soon. Have had no success thus far. I guess it is a blessing in disguise though since my girls are sick with the H1N1 virus and it forces me to spend all my time with my girls.
Prayerfully I can get my computer fixed today and my girls feel better as well.
For more inspiration for today's Flutter By Wednesday Challenge, please visit my dt sisters on my sidebar.
Have a great day!!

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.

Are you ready for another challenge?
It's a new challenge at the Wags 'n Whiskers blog today.
This week Tina is our hostess and she has challenged us to Stitch 'em Up! You can use machine sewing, hand sewing, faux sewing, or even just piercing!
Since I love sewing with my machine and use it many of my creations, this was very easy for me. I decided to color this adorable image Angel Whispers with Tim Holtz Distress Inks cute it out use paper tole for dimension. I also added stickles to the angel wings and the butterflies but it is hard to see in the picture. The paper is from the Basic Grey Nook and Pantry pad. I just love this paper and can't wait to use it again soon!!! I also used the Martha Stewart fence punch and the Moracca Lace punch from EK Success. I distressed by paper with ink on the edges to give it an antiquated look. The is my second easel card!! They are so fun to make and I just love seeing the inside and outside at once. The sentiment says "Thanks for being my "furever" friend."
Here are the list of other challenges I worked on for this card as well:

Now on for my take on today's challenges.....
Today's challenges were so much fun. I challenged myself to combine the Flutter By Wednesday and Inky Impressions challenges and create one project. I love how it turned out but my photo doesn't show what it looks like IRL!! I took 30 photos and still could not get the picture I wanted. Hate when that happens!!!
Today's challenge at Flutter By Wednesday is to create a card or project which shows thankfulness AND HAS A BUTTERFLY, ANGEL, or FAIRY on it.
This weeks challenge at Inky Impressions is to create an ornament or add an ornament to your card or project. Using Inky Impressions Stamp/Images is not required for this challenge but if you got them why not use them. This challenge is also part of a design team call they are having (more details to follow at the end of the post. If you are applying for the dt call this challenge must be completed by November 24th at Midnight Eastern Time.
Here is my take on both challenges:
I created a shaker ornament box that can be hung in the tree if you would like or just used as a gift. It does hang, although, I could not hang it for the purpose of this photo. I used the new release Angelica's Sled and Angelica's Pretty Gifts from Inky Impressions. The ornament hangs inside the box. It is a really glittery purple ornament that has a round pinecone type shape. In front of the ornament is my shaker snow to create my scene. I colored the image with prisma color pencils and gamsol and used paper tole for dimension. I also added Liquid Applique for snow and green/gold cording for the sled string. The dp is sewn in the background as well for some added elegance and detail. In case you are unable to spot my angel, it is a charm hanging from the snowflake.
On the tag coming off of the gifts, I created a tag that says thank you. this ornament is just one of many that I am creating for gifts at Christmas. I am Assistant Superintendent of Sunday School and I have 12 of these to create to give to the teacher's for Christmas as a way of saying thanks. I better get busy. One down and 11 to go. Ugh!
I hope this creation inspires you to create a card or project for either Inky Impressions or Flutter by Wednesday. Since this is a long post, here is a recap.
For Flutter by Wednesday, the challenge is to create a card or project with a fairy, butterfly or Angel on it that shows "thankfulness". If you should create for this challenge, leave a direct link here on Mr. Linky. If you upload your creation to Splitcoast or PCP, please use the keyword FBW.

NOW FOR OUR WEEKLY BONUS PRIZES
Here is this week's sketch!
....And here is my take on the sketch!
I used Michelle's fabulous Summer image on my card. I made it more of a Christmas type image using the Winter Wonderland paper from K & Co. I paper pieced her dress and colored the rest of the image with copics. Parts of the background are dry embossed with the soft swirls embossing folder. The triangle corner pieces are embossed with gold. The pearls are from ZVA Creative. I did lots of sewing. This image is truly different than my usual style and I struggled with how I wanted to use it but I think it turned out o.k. What do you think?
It is a busy time of year for us all and we at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge are no exception, Priscilla will be out of town for a couple of weeks and the Design Team is going to take over.We hope you have a restful vacation Priscilla.

We also found out why our basement has been flooding. Woohoo!! It can be easily corrected!!! No more flooding in my craft or laundry areas. Scott and I just could not figure out why after 11 years it was flooding. Yes we had access rain this year beyond belief but we sit up on a small nole and none of the neighbors had any issues. To make a long story short.....we discovered a root of a mulberry tree had grown 25 feet into our footing drain plugging up the entire pipe. All the water from the footing drain backed up the pipe, sat around our house and caused so much pressure that it came into the basement. Needless to say, we now have removed part of the footing drain, have a huge trench, and the mulberry tree will be cut down!! Glad it is a pretty inexpensive fix and there will be no more fuss over flooding!!
Yesterday I had hoped to stamp but came down with a migraine on Saturday night. Oh well...
I am feeling a tad bit better this morning. The card I am going to share with you is one I made last week using the WT242 Purple Pretties Challenge and SC252. I used the Luke 2:11 and Blessed Christmas from Our Daily Bread Designs which was released on November 1. The poinsettia is embossed in gold on Very vanilla paper and then painted with pearl glimmermist. The ribbon treatment is created with the lattice Spellbinders. The dp is one of my faves from BG-Wisteria.
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- Luke 2:11, Blessed Christmas

The weekend is upon us and Inky Impressions is adding a little more excitement and kicking off the weekend with a New Release of 5 CUTE stamps and a Blog Hop!!
If you came here from Jenn's Blog, then you are at the right place, if not, you may want to start back at the Inky Impressions Blog (Nicole's blog) for a chance to win. Somewhere on one of the stops along the way there is a prize hidden and none of us knows where it is so you will want to leave a comment on each stop along the way.
Today I would like to share 2 adorable images with you!!
The first card is a shaker card I created using the new Angelica's Snowman stamp. Isn't it such a sweet image? I colored the image with Prisma Color pencils and gamsol. The Inky drops you see on the snowflakes is a new item available at the store as is that gorgeous snowflake ribbon!! The dp is from the Eskimo Kisses pack from Basic Grey. I did sew on this card but it is difficult to see in the photo with the dry embossing I used to create texture. The snowflakes were made using the Spellbinders Create a Flake 1 die.
Card 2 is made using Ice Skating Rachel. The fun layout I used is from Mercy's Sketch Challenge this week. I water colored and paper toled Rachel with Distress Inks. Her fur was created with Liquid Applique. The dp is from Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses. (Can't you tell, I just love the patterns in this pad.) Again I used the Inky Drops in the Corners available at the store. The sentiment says: "When I think of you... I get the warm fuzzies." The panel behind the image is dry embossed with the Textile Embossing Folder. My panels each have sewing on them except for the image and sentiment panel which have been distressed with ink.
I have decided to offer this stamp to one lucky person. All you need to do is leave a comment here and I will randomly choose a winner on Sunday, November 15 (after the blog hop has ended).
Thanks for stopping here on the hop. I hope you have enjoyed my creations. Your next step is the oh so talented and sweet Kristine!! Enjoy the hop and your day. Don't forget that somewhere along the way a prize is hidden so you will want to make a comment on each blog for a chance to win.
