Happy Tuesday Everyone!! I hope you are having a bright and beautiful day where you are like we are having here. It is still early and the sun is shining brightly. It is suppose to be warm so I hope to go out early and plant flowers in all my window boxes.

Speaking of bright and cheery....I have a very bright and cheery card to share with you today (for me anyway) A Spoon Full of Sugar is celebrating their 2 year Blogaversary!!! so for this weeks Challenge it is to make a Celebration Card!!! There will be 2 prizes given away this week for one lucky participant!!! One from Whimsy Stamps and the other from Bunny Zoe Crafts!!!! So pop on over and join in the fun this week HERE!!!

Debbie asked the Whimsy Design Team if we would be Guest Designers to help celebrate their Blogaversary!!! For my creation today I made a Birthday Card using this wonderful Whimsy Image from the Crissy Armstrong Digital Collection called Party Snail. I used the Friday Sketchers sketch for this week and SEI Birthday Party. I even had the opportunity to use my much neglected Tangerine Tango dp. Since I was using one of Crissy's images, I could not pass up the opportunity to join in her Sunday's With Crissy challenge which was to use layers. Not at all too difficult for me. LOL!

Crissy Armstrong is also offering a free image inspired by Jayme. If you have not heard...Jayme is my Whimsy dt sister, Lisa's sister who has terminal lung cancer. . Lisa has a special request on her blog regarding her sister Jayme. Lisa is asking us to send a card to Jayme. She'd like us to send a funny card (with a frog if we have one!) but not a get well card, to give her sister some joy and smiles at this time. She is offering a huge blog candy to a random participant and many companies have donated to the cause. Please see the details on her post HERE.

Jeannie said...

Blog Hopping from Becca's Blog! This card caught my eye. I love the colors you chose and the layout is different with the half sheet on the left and the border going down. I think I gravitate towards cards that have stiching on them. Its just that extra touch that probably takes some extra time to do but to me it really makes a difference. Great job! ~Jeannie
