WW #94 Christmas in July

This week's sponsor at Wicked Wednesday is JSL – Just Some Lines and how awesome that they are providing winner's choice of four (4) free images from their online store!

It was a nice change of pace to make a Christmas ATC at this time of year. The background was made using the CB Holly embossing folder and applying TH DI's over the raised embossing. A FYG Copic was used for highlighting around the dove which is not my usual BG10,  but heck...I still think it looks great.

We would love to have you join us in this fun challenge at Wicked Wednesday, just remember to LINK your ATC by next Tuesday at 7:00 pm EST.

I know I always say Happy Wednesday and this week it really is! I have company  flying in from Maine and Florida today, then tomorrow we will be heading over to our annual scrapbooking retreat in a nearby suburb. FUN!!

I will miss you KL!! 

Happy day,

WW #93 Treehouse Reminder

Oh my...this has been a whirlwind of a week! We've had company from New York and Missouri, with more folks coming in from Florida and Maine this coming week!  With all of the hustle and bustle I forgot to schedule my post for today, so I am trying something new and will attempt to make this post using a Blogger app from my phone, I hope it works!

The theme for this week's challenge at Wicked Wednesday is Bird Houses, and the image I used is from The Graphics Fairy... not only is it gorgeous, but it is also free. 

You have until next Tuesday at 7:00 PM EST to join us. For DT inspiration and a link to this week's ATC challenge click HERE.

Y&FH #20 Celebration Reminder

With all of the anniversary hoopla that has been going on this week at Yumi & Fumi Handmade, it would be easy to forget that they are in the midst of a CELEBRATION challenge....here are the challenge details:

July 7th - July 19
Ends: Noon (pst)
I chose to make a tag and notepad using Fumi with Turtle for the Celebration theme.
Several images of Fumi were randomly stamped throughout the notepad in a light gray ink.
My teamie Eva created an adorable card using Yumi Peace Sign and I think you'll agree with me that Yumi has the most pinchable cheeks!

WW #92 Down the Rabbit Hole Reminder

I can never think of Alice in Wonderland without humming a few bars to White Rabbit by Jefferson Starship...and if you tell me you are too young to remember the song...ackkkkkkk, off with your head! I thought the lyrics would make the perfect background to this ATC, along with TGF's Wonderland Digi Set.
You have until 7:00 pm (est) next Tuesday to link your ATC to the Wicked Wednesday Down the Rabbit Hole Challenge....hope to see you there!!

WW #92 Down the Rabbit Hole

Please click HERE for Y&FH's Anniversary blog hop.

Rick St. Dennis is this week's sponsor at Wicked Wednesday, and as the sponsor he allowed each of the DT to choose the image of their choice to work with for the Down the Rabbit Hole challenge.  I asked to use the Falling Alice digi, but get this....he generously sent an extra image from his matching Domino Book collection....so much fun to create with!!

Fussy cutting, Stickles in Fruit Punch, and alpha stamps....down, down, down....the rabbit hole!

Have fun with this week's theme...there are lot's of ways to interpret it! Remember to link up your ATC to Wicked Wednesday by next Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. EST.

Happy Wednesday

The cards were kept CAS as the recipient will undoubtedly add her own handmade embellishments to each.
