Wee Blessings

Hi ya all!
Sure hoping this finds you in good spirits and ready for a nice weekend!  Today is ATC's and Cards with Attitude Day!   Fantastic turnout this challenge- over 160 wonderful creations! Congratulations to the winners.  I am amazed at the talent to see.  So inspiring.  

WOW, do we have the most fantastic sponsors for you this forthnight!  Sassy Studio Designs, Fresh Brewed Designs and Anita's Digital Art, topped off with Top 3 winners! Such a fun time!

I colored up this sweet little elf named Ashee, created by Anita's Digital Art.  I think he is the cutest lil' thing!  Used Prisma Pencils and OMS, tore up some stash paper and sewed it to the background, then added a lace lower border. Besides the lace, I made scallops around Ashee with a small circle punch, distressed them, glued them to the back of Ashee's oval frame and added pearls.  Placed a few flowers, some corner pieces, pearled butterflies and loose moving paisley cuts, sent by my good friend.  And don't forget the cheesecloth!  Finished off by poking in a beautiful beaded pin made by Karen at Busy Busy Honeybee's.  Adds such beauty; a perfect finishing touch.  This pin was a birthday gift from Karen, but she sells these lovelies also. Check out her shop!  

Most of what I decorated with were new supplies from WOC and cuts from friends.  It was so, so fun but so, so hard to break into my new goodies!  I love to have such pretty things but don't want to use a one up!  Are any of you like that?  Such a silly.  But wonderful friends.

That's it for now.  Onto Challenge 17 at ATC's- Anything Goes!  See you very soon with Fat Pages Challenge news and card.  Oh, and thank you to my new followers!  I appreciate you so very much.
