Happy Thursday PEEPS! We cannot BEGIN to tell you how elated we are with how many entries we got this past week for Tamie's "fairy/butterfly/angel" challenge!!! This is so exciting for us girls - you have no idea! Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who participated!

Are you ready for a new challenge? This week, it's brought to you by me, Lori, and I have a gorgeous INSPIRATIONAL photo for you....I got it from the Bed, Bath and Beyond website. For our challenge this week, you take whatever you need to from this photo and run with it! It can be the colors, the patterns, the textures, whatever you want! I can't wait to see what you come up with :)


This week also is the last week of the month, which means PRIZE WEEK! Miss Melissa is offering up a SCRUMPTIOUS package for you :) One lucky participant will be chosen by Random.org to win this:


For my card(s), yes I made two, I CASE'd Gretchen Barron's card you can find HERE. This technique has been popping up here and there out in blogland and I just had to give it a whirl. I used stars instead of polka dots though :) Hope you enjoy them! For more details, please see my blog, HERE.
