Hello Dear Ones!
Another Wednesday gone by!  But hey, that means another Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge-yahoo!!!  This week our theme is "Girl Power."  We have 2 wonderful sponsors for you- Kenny K and Sassy Studio Designs!  

Here is Kenny K's "Club Kid"-

We are hoping you will pop on over to Penny's and enter your "Girl Power" makes into Challenge #133!  Did you know we have Top 3 winners now, too?! Aren't they fun to win?  Sometimes better than winning a digi prize!  My Teamie's have wonderful makes to show off, too!

Lacy Sunshine's Oz Debut with Moonbeam!

Happy day to you, Friends!
Today is a special treat day with the making of a nifty and enthralling little video debuting Lacy Sunshine's OZ characters!  Heather has hand drawn all your favorite Oz cast.  For example, the Wicked Witch, Maddie as the Scarecrow and of course, Eleanore as Dorothy!  I am so happy to show you Moonbeam as The Good Witch!  Here she is!

A Gate-fold card to show off this fabulous Oz beauty!

Here is a closer look at The Good Witch.  Glinda, right?  of the North?  Well, Moonbeam is playing acting- lol!

Can you believe that Heather hand draws each and every digi?  No copying of heads or eyes etc.  She pulls out her sketch pad and draws!  Ideas come into her head and her natural abilities go down on paper.  Wow, don't you agree her art is amazing?  

Talk about fun to color!  Beside the cast of OZ, Lacy Sunshine has a digi for any occasion.  Just go to the Lacy Sunshine Shop and take a look around.  There are categories to help guide you along and soon you'll have a long wish list!  You'll be "blown" away!

Click here to be taken to Lacy Sunshine's Blog where you can view a spectacular little video showing off some of the OZ cast-- designed and colored by Heather and my so very talented Teamies!  It really is a fun little video to watch!  Then hop on over to the shop and get your favorite OZ character!  You won't be in Kansas any more, you will be in Digi Heaven!

Bye for now, my dear friends.  See you tomorrow!  Lots of Bright Spots for you, I hope!

ps. Remember our Lacy Sunshine Challenge just started, too.  Heather will send you one of her amazing digis FREE so you can be entered into the Random draw for the top prize!  If you use an image other than one from Lacy Sunshine, you still qualify for Top 3's or a GDT spot, if you wish!  Top 3's are getting 2 digis of your choice.  Top prize is 30.00 to spend in the Lacy Sunshine Shop!!!  Now how cool is that?!!!

Our Crafty Friend Alice

Hi, Crafty Friends!
It's Crafty Friends Weekly Challenge #3 time!  We are a WEEKLY challenge now, changing from Forever Friends.  Our theme this go is "Use Your Favorite Color Combination."   We are being sponsored by the incredibly talented Rick St Dennis!  We also have Top 3 picks, too!

Here is a sampling of Rick's work from the Randi Dandi line, "Alice in the Garden of Live Flowers:"

She is beautiful in her own way, isn't she?   Love her little flower friends.  My colors are purple and blue, but I'm not sure if it is my favorite color combo. Can't wait to see your favorite!  You are sooo inspiring! Really am looking forward to seeing you at Crafty Friends this week!

I'd like to take the time to thank you for leaving me such kind, wonderful comments.  Gosh, I appreciate you so very much.  I hope things smooth around here soon so that I can hop on over and see what you have been up to also!  Love to see what you are creating and give you a hello.

Hoping you have a marvelous week with lots of time to craft.  See you soon, my Friends!  Big hugs and Bright Spots for you...

Keep Calm!

Think summer is finally here?  Our forecast sure seems that it is.  Yay!!!  It's been a long wait, hasn't it?

Today is Wednesday, Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge day!  Yahoo!  This week we have for you Limited Runs, Robyn's Fetish and StampArt Design by Kathryne as sponsors, with the theme of "1, 2, 3."  What's "1,2,3" did you ask?  It's 1 image, 2 patterned papers, and 3 embellishments!  Fun theme!  

As you can see on my make, I did it again, and didn't follow the theme very well.  Please don't do as I did.  LOLOL

Here is "Katie Reading" by Robyn's Fetish:

This is going to my sis who cares for my parents, God bless her.  Don't know what we would do without her.  She loves to read and always has her nose in a book, so thought this would be perfect for her.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC.  The original sentiment has these really cool fingers pointing but I took them out as the fingers looked really weird when I resized the sentiment.  LOL

This is it for today!  I hope you are having a very lovely week, and if not, my hope is that a Bright Spot will come your way.  Fall right in your lap!  See you soon, Friends!

Hello there!
It's Celebration Time!  Well, the first celebration is that I've joined the Lacy Sunshine Design Team!  Yipee!  So happy to get those pencils on Heather's digis!!! Can hardly believe it!  

Now I can tell you about the important celebration!  Lacy Sunshine is having a 1 year Celebration!  A very special 1 year Celebration! 

Last June, Heather, the creator of Lacy Sunshine Stamps, launched her first digis with the creation of the amazing Eleanore & Pickles!  But wait, the good stuff is still to come!  Heather has created a CD with ALL her Eleanore & Pickles creations and guess what? Yep, that CD goes to a special someone this challenge!  You can be that special someone!  All you have to do is create a hand colored project using one of Lacy Sunshine's digis.  But wait, the fun doesn't stop here- Heather even provides you with a digi to use on your creation! Once you see a Lacy Sunshine digi, you are going to fall in love and just HAVE to color one!  Top it all of with an Anything Goes challenge!  Now we're having fun!

To get your fingers itching, here is a peek at just one of the digis on the CD, Eleanore & Pickles Catching Butterflies:

Let's start celebrating!  Go to the Lacy Sunshine Challenge blog, request your free digi, and get craftin'!  Remember, to qualify for the CD, you must use a Lacy Sunshine image, although you will still qualify for a Top 3 or GDT spot.   See a little taste of what you will get on the CD by checking out my Teamies and GDT incredible makes!  Hey, see you there!

Happy Birthday- that is our theme over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge this week.  Funny, it's my birthday this week.  I was thinking the other day (uh oh), I am over half a century old!  I've never thought of my age in those terms before and I think I won't do it any longer!  Ugh!  Sounds soooo old!  

Let's get back to Penny's!  This week's sponsors are Eureka Stamps and Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  Wonderful sponsors, yes?  Decided to have fun with this make using "BB Sitter Balloon" by Bugaboo:

I hope you will come see us at Penny's and enter your Birthday make.  It will be fun to see your lovely creations!  While you are there, please take a peek at my lovely Teamie's are sure to smile!

See you again soon, my friends.  Oh, Oh, I want to say thank you to new followers- Thank you New Followers!  Glad to have you as a friend.  Thank you, too, to the ever faithful who always leave a comment.  You are treasures.  True Bright Spots!
