Spots and Stripes Challenge

It's Sunday!  Our new, fun challenge this week at Stamptacular Sunday is Spots and Stripes.  Use lots of spots and stripes on your card or project.  Our awesomely fantastic Sponsors this week are Stitchy Bear ($10 gift certificate!!) and 7 Kids College Fund ($20 gift certicate!!)  Wowza!  C'mon.  Let's play!  It would be so very kind of you to check out the Sponsor's websites.  It sure makes playing along a lot more fun, doesn't it?

I have used a sweet little stamp from Whimsy and Stars Studio.  Lucy's Valentine.  Isn't she so cute?  I just had to have her when I saw her.  So adorable.

The orange background paper is from my Scherenschnitte Paper collection from 20 years ago!  I'm not really that old.  I was probably just two when I started that craft. ;) !

Fairy Fever!

I love this new challenge at Stamptacular Sunday.  Fairy Fever!  Please create a card or project with a fairy on it.  Who doesn't like sweet little fairies?  I can't wait to see all your fantastic designs.  We have TWO sponsors the week.  A Day for Daisies is offering a $12 gift certificate and Delicious Doodles is offering the winner's choice of 4 digis!  Wow!  How generous of these two sponsors.  Please visit them to check out their beautiful digistamps.

This week I am using three adorable stamps from Sweet November and a Sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp.  They are little fairwees, Josie, Emaline and Jilly.  I have to say, I had a smile on my face the entire time I was coloring them and creating this card.  They are just the cutest.

Don't Be Square!

Okay, time for some fun at Stamptacular Sunday!  Don't be Square. Create a card that is NOT square!
Our fantastic sponsor this week is Whoopsie Daisy.  The winner has a choice of two sheets of digis!!  Wow!  Their stamps are so adorable. Please pop by and check them out.

I made a circle card using Milly, Me and My Dog by LOTV.  She is so adorable.

Close Up

This is my first attempt at a circle card.  When I first stood it up, it rolled away! LOL!
So, I added the little flower buttons to the bottom of the card. :) I paper pieced her dress and shoes.
