Well, after battling with the machines that live in my house - my computer, camera and refrigerator - for over a week and having extra days of the kids being home due to cancellations because of weather, I am hoping that I am FINALLY back on track!

We have a NEW CHALLENGE at FRESH BREWED DESIGNS this week and that challenge is PHOTO INSPIRATION.    You have until Tuesday, Feb. 1 to enter your creations at FRESH BREWED DESIGNS blog.  Here is the photo we are using:

Also, don't forget our BIG BLOG HOP on March 1 to introduce our NEWEST images on red rubber (now mounted or unmounted)!  Heather, owner and illustrator/designer of FRESH BREWED DESIGNS has come up with some FABULOUS new images!  If you'd like to help us advertise, grab the badge below for your blog, then e-mail Heather at and let her know you are displaying the badge.  You will be entered into our prize drawing!!

For our challenges, you are not required to use a FRESH BREWED DESIGNS image, but if you have one, we'd LOVE to see it!!  You can find a wide array of images at FRESH BREWED SHOP in digi form or red rubber on certain images and there is a section of super cute FREEBIES as well:)

I must admit that the colors of today's challenge are not the first ones I "go to" when choosing to make a card, but I love to mix it up and be inspired by different challenges, and I'm pretty pleased how this turned out.  I used "Emma - key to my heart" image from FRESH BREWED DESIGNS and colored her with Copics and Aytou Spicas and cut with Nesties.  All DP is SU and base of card is SU gable green.  Sentiment is from Darcie's Heart and Home, stamped in SU old olive and cut with Nesties.  Ric-rac trim is from JoAnn.  Ribbon is from my stash.  Hope you like and will come play along in our challenge!!

SUNDAYS w/ CHRISSY - ribbons
CREATALICIOUS - ribbons and Valentine theme
STAMP FAIRY - circles
