Happy Saturday all!! I hope you are all having a great weekend!!  I want to begin by apologizing for my absence this week.  I have had a lot of things going on at home this week that have occupied my time.  It looks like the next few months may be very hectic for me with lots to do.  Oh long as everyone is healthy right?!

Today I am popping in to share this week's Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs and sneak peek of one of Crissy Armstrong's images to be released at Whimsy on April 13!!

Crissy has outdone herself yet again with such adorable and fun images.  For my creation, I used Cupcake Bliss and the new fab Party Mini seals designed by Ann Vento!  The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Hello Luscious collection.  The banners are cut out with Whimsy's Shapeology Banner Pennant dies
 I colored my image with copics.

For more inspiration using Crissy's images and Ann's sentiment from the Whimsy April Release, click on the links of my talented dt sisters below.

Now on to my second creation....This weeks Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs: "No Ribbons" You may use lace on your creation, hemp, cording or string...but no ribbons!!

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!!

*gasp* You take my breath away, Chris....these cards are GORGEOUS. (So gorgeous, in fact, that I almost forgot the "p" in "gasp", and that would have looked pretty funny sitting there typed out in asterisks, huh?)
