A sad farewell to Sonia!

We have really enjoyed having Sonia share her talent with us this month!  She's a sheer delight to work with and quite a talented artist!  We will certainly miss her!

"Thanks, Sonia!  We appreciate you joining us this month!"

For her final guest designer post, Sonia used Fuzzer the Monster!  I love her choice of papers and embellies and her coloring (Again!) is awesome!  You know you are good when you can make a monster look lovable, right!?


Be sure to pop on over to see Sonia at her blog Scraps4Fun!  Be sure to leave her some love and tell her how you love her creations!

See this digi and more at Melissa's store HERE!

Then join us on facebook to show us your talent!!

Enjoy your day!

More creations from Sonia!

Happy Saturday!  It has officially turned from summer to fall and almost winter, here in Indiana, where I live!  It has been severly dreary and almost to the freezing point!  But thank goodness we have Sonia to brighten our day! She has really had fun playing with Melissa's images and I am sure you have been enjoying them just as much! 

When you get finished reviewing her lovelies below, be sure to pop on over to her blog!  She will get you motivated to create TODAY, I promise! See her at Scraps4Fun!

Here's her first card using Mummy Dog! Adorable!  And isn't her coloring just amazing!?  Love her papers and stitching details just add some love to that card, doesn't it?


Look at this gorgeous Birthday card!  I love her layout and those papers are just gorgeous!  She used a Happy Birthday with Balloons sentiment for this one, and it just looks perfect!  I love how she uses black to make her papers POP, don't you!?

And how about ONE MORE!!???
Here's a CUUUUUUTE card using Frog Prince! I LOVE LOVE LOVE her layout and her coloring is just da'bomb!  (That means 'awesome' for those of you who don't know teenage slang like I do! HAHA!)  Love the sentiment and with the way she colored the Frog Prince, I almost do just want to kiss him!


Thank you, Sonia for another great week of gorgeous creations!

Be sure to see these and ALL of Melissa's whimsical images at her Meljen's Designs Store!  If you also would like to "LIKE" Melissa's Facebook page, be sure to click HERE!  We'd love to see you and you can share your creations directly with her there!  Be sure to check it out!

I hope you enjoyed Sonia's creations!  Be sure to check out her last post next Saturday as our October Guest Designer!  We sure have loved having her join us this month!  Can't wait to see what she makes next week!

Enjoy your weekend!

Flashback Friday – Bibble Bubble Cauldron

This was one of my favorite digis last Halloween. I loved drawing it because it reminded me of a little line I had in a play when I was in kindergarten… it went something like “The wicked witch stirs her magic cauldron with a wooden spoon.” Of course I was too scared to say it, I was so shy. But this stamp brings back memories! :-)

Bibble Bubble Cauldron

Here are two cards from our talented team featuring this digital stamp!
Do you remember seeing these?

From Di:

Don’t you just love that little spider?

From Mel F:

(This one also features Little Bunny Witch and Stitched Trick or Treat)

I hope this inspires some spooky fun for Halloween! Have a lovely, crafty weekend!

Tantalizing Toooosday 10/18/2011


One of the things I love most about Fall is Halloween!  I always make way more Halloween cards that I need to send out, and then I make a few more, too!  I just love the colors, and the fun designs, the cheeky sentiments... it's all so much fun!  All of your cards in our Halloween challenge were so much fun to admire and I'm glad you enjoyed the theme!  Our design team has been creating some Halloween fun, as well!  

Also in October, we support Breast Cancer Awareness and Melissa has designed some adorable images that were released this past weekend and I am excited to see how you use them!  Looks like the girls had a lot of fun with these special images, too!

So, enjoy some inspiration from our team and from our wonderful challenge participants, as well!
