Make it Monday!

Are you going to create this week?  Of course you are! 
Are you going to use paper in your creation?  Yup!  (Or "duh" as my five year old would say...sometimes I'm convinced that's the only thing she's learned in kindergarten!) 
Would you like to win a prize from a great sponsor?  Yes?  Then join us this week at Make it Monday!  We're always an open paper challenge with a great sponsor and this week is no exception...this week our sponsor is the oh-so-fun Dr. Digi's! 

Here is my creation, using a little-too-much sun Hole in one Hal:

Seriously, get that guy an umbrella! 

Now for my P(s)OTW!

From Faye, this amazing spring box just blows my mind!

And from Andrea, a card just perfect for owl lovers:

Absolutely fabulous!!!
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to see you at Make it Monday!

Cupcake Time!

It's time for another challenge at Cupcake Inspirations and this one, frankly, is for the birds!  Lol!  Here's what I'm talking about...

And, fittingly, our sponsor this week is the amazing Pink Cat Studio!  I mean, what gets along better than birds and cats?  Maybe mice and cats?  Lol!  Pink Cat Studio has the most adorable images!  If you've never checked them out, you should definitely do on the link above and prepare to be delighted! 
Here is my creation, using Pretty Birds in Tree!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you find time to join us at Cupcake Inspirations this week for a great challenge!

When I created this card it was spring-like, there is eight inches of snow on the ground! 

So it's fitting that our theme this week at Tilda's Town is CHRISTMAS!!!! 

I used the adorable Tilda with Lovikka Mittens...she's so cute!

For more inspiration, check out the rest of Team A...they are just brilliant!  Their links are in my sidebar!
So whether it's warm or cold, snowy or green, fire up your Christmas spirit and join us at Tilda's Town for a chance to win a great prize!

I love these digi images!  I especially love the kid images, which is why I used Kid Pocket Topper-long hair girl (poor thing, she needs a better name, lol!) for my Thank You card!

Love her!

And now for my's been awhile since I stalked one of my favorite bloggers, Tracy over at I Wanna Build a Memory...her creations are incredible and this week is no exception:

One of the things I love about this card is that the inside is almost as cute as the outside...

Love it!  Tracy is fabulous!
