Happy Monday! Here's to the beginning of another week...I had a wonderful weekend with my family but am so glad to be back in to my routine at home. Since it is raining...I just may get some blogging and crafting in!! Woo hoo!!

Since today is Monday it is time for another Product Spotlight at the Stamp and Create store. Lacey is extending her Product Spotlight of the week of Wags n Whiskers images by Crissy for one more week (that means they are on sale for 25% off for another week too!)

She's also adding a monthly challenge! This month's challenge is to use ribbon on your card.
but you also must
~ use a stamp that is available at Stamp and Create.
(you don't have to purchase the stamp from her, there are so many different companies that Lacey carries in the store including Penny Black, Greeting Farm, Wags n Whiskers, Stampavie, Kraftin Kimmie, My Heart Stamps for you, CC Designs, High Hopes, and Whiff of Joy that it is hard to not to join us!!)
~ Must be a follower of the Stamp and Create Blog
~ Must link the stamp in the post to the stamp in the store.
~and for this challenge...use RIBBON
Here is my take on the challenge using Say a Prayer from Wags n Whiskers. I so love coloring her. I water colored her with my SU markers and distress inks.


If you have not heard, Stampin up is bringing Baja Breeze back. Woo hoo!! I just love this color!!! I used my favorite Parisian Breeze paper from SU for this card and some gorgeous silk ribbon from Lacey's store!!

This card uses the Saturday sketch from last week.

Paper: Parisian Breeze SU, Baja Breeze, white
Accessories: Ivory Prima Trellis rose, Blue Silk Ribbon, Cuttlebug iron flourish embossing folder, Bosskut flourish, Kaiser-craft snow pearls, prima ivory mini gypso, spellbinders Fancy Tags
