Hi!  It's Penny's is Wednesday, right?  Oh good, then yes, it's Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge #137 time!  This week our theme is "Bling it On!"  We all have so much fun with this theme!

One of our sponsor's is Lacy Sunshine.  I think you'll agree that these digis are marvy!  Here is Freesia, from the Flower Pot Pretties-

Isn't she just gorgeous sitting in her little Terra Cotta pot?

These Lacy Sunshine images are just the best to color!

I hope you'll stop by Penny's and enter a card or two with your best bling so you have a chance of winning some of these digis for your own, or even a Top 3 spot!  Now that would be nice!

My very best to you, filled with Bright Spots along the way.

It's a Babybug!

Oops, I forgot that I had 2 cards for you today- uh oh.  I better get on it then!

One Stitch At A Time's Challenge #173 is  all about "favorite things."  Use you favorite things on your project and tell us what they are.  A fun theme, don't you think?

My favorite thing would be the Prisma Pencils used for coloring.  Love to color!  So, here is "BabyBug" by BBKakes, all cute and colored up for you!

We do hope to see you over at OSAAT challenge this week along with your Favorite Things!  

Wishing you a Bright Spot and a wonderful week! (I haven't had enough coffee yet so you get my half awake posting which isn't much different than my usual posting! LOL)


Gnome's on Holiday!

Hey there, Friends!
Sure hoping you've had a nice weekend!  

Lacy Sunshine's Gnomes are going to have a marvelous 2 weeks on Holiday!  Yes, they are!  For Challenge 13, let's start with "Winston- Hangin' Out," aka hubby Larry!  Looks just like him- sssshhhhh!  Lar will be surprised I remembered to make him a card! LOL!  

Here is Winston:

Isn't he the neatest Gnome ever?

This was sooo much fun to color and make into a card!  I know you would have a blast doing any Lacy Sunshine digi!  Take a peek in the shop and I bet you will find a digi you just HAVE to HAVE!

As usual, we are Anything Goes, so get out your pens and pencils and let's GO!  See you there!  Where?  The Lacy Sunshine Challenge blog!  

We have a change regarding the free digi so please see the challenge blog for all the details.

Where would you like to go on Holiday?  Don't forget to tell me!  Ummmm, I think I would like to go to a beach somewhere.  Maybe the Caribbean.  Yea, the Caribbean would do me just fine!

Have a lovely few weeks, my Friends.  Pack your Bright Spots!

Oh goodness, did it again!  And I have a calendar that I do keep up to date.  What did I do?  Forgot to do this Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge #136 post!  Uh oh.  LOL  Better late then never, right?  Last time I was a week late! LOL  Well, here we go!

This week I was so blessed to have an image from StampArt Design by Kathryne.  She is a gorgeous little fairy named Sapphire- see...

 Told you she was gorgeous!

The fairy sentiment is also from StampArt  and is from the Fairy Wishes sentiments.  You can find a whole digi file of Fairy Sentiments, among others, in the Dollar Digi Deals!  Kathryne does send out a free weekly sentiment file, like the Fairy sentiment above, and it stays free for a bit then goes in the Dollar Digi bin.  You can sign up for Kathryne's emails on her blog and get the free sentiments right to your door!  Twice a week, in fact!

The theme this week at Penny's is "use black somewhere on your creation."  The outline of your image doesn't count but silhouettes do count for the black.

Sure hope to see you at Penny's this week!  Remember we have 2 sponsors and Top 3 winners in a weekly challenge!  Bright Spots everywhere you look...see one?

Thank you for leaving me such nice, nice comments.  I appreciate you so much!  You are my Bright Spots.  My very best to you...

Lacy's Christmas In July!

Hey there, my Friends!
Christmas in July.  Do you even want to think about Christmas now? (I am melting)  I sure didn't feel very Christmas-y until I saw these jolly good new digis from Lacy Sunshine!  Heather has done another masterful release!  If you have a chance, please check out my Teamie's makes from last week and this week.  Oh, almost forgot...this is a mid-challenge reminder, not the start of another fantastic challenge.  Guess I better let you know that part, huh? 

Isn't Coco a little doll with her Onesie PJ's on, just waiting for Santa to come and eat his cookies and warm up (lol) from out in the cold!

 You still have one more week to enter the Anything Goes Lacy Sunshine Challenge.  You can still request your free digi too, so you can qualify for the top dog (deer) prize of $30.00 to spend in the Lacy Sunshine Shop!  But if you don't use a LS image, you can still win a Top 3 spot and if chosen, a GDT spot, and you still get digis as prizes.  Pretty good challenge, wouldn't you say?

Sure hope to see you over at Lacy Sunshine!  You can also join our FaceBook group which is a super place where you can post any of your work, ask questions, and just have fun!

Hoping you have a Bright Spot sort of day!

Yum, Ice Cream!

Hey there!
Is Ice Cream spelled "Cream" or "Creme?" What is the difference?  LOL  Always wondered about this.  I guess I could pull out a dictionary if I really wanted to know, huh?

At Penny's Paper-Crafty this week we have lots of Ice Cream inspiration for you from one of our sponsors- Digi My WorldOur other sponsor this week is LOTV, so you get 2 fantastic sponsors in a Weekly Challenge!  Pretty good, don't you think?

Our theme for challenge #135 is "Think Pink."   This is always a fun theme!   

Here is my Think Pink creation with an Ice Cream (creme?) image from Digi My World.

She comes in a set with other great ice cream digis and even an ice cream truck!  Check out my talented Teamie's makes on the Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge blog!

Well, another week into July...they sure go fast!  I really hope your week has been a good one for you and that Bright Spots drop right in your lap!  See you soon, my friends!

Viva Las Vegas!

Top of the Morning (Evening?) to you!
A little goodie to show you...

Girl image is by Kenny K.  Her name is Uptown.

This is a birthday card I made for my Sister-in-law to give to her Granddaughter.  Guess where she is going for her birthday? LOL 

Description of the card to make:  dark hair, brown eyes, likes to have fun, 21, Las Vegas theme.  AWWWKK!  Las Vegas theme, oh no!!! 

StampArt Design by Kathryne to the rescue with this "fabulous" sign!  

It was designed after the historic "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign and is for sale in StampArt's shop.  What you get is a personalized sign, with the name and age you would like, AND you get a file without the name and age so you can use your sign over and over again!  Super idea, isn't it?  Who wouldn't want to have their name in lights?!

Next time you are asked to do a Las Vegas themed card, or would just like to do one for an upcoming special birthday, you won't be in a crunch looking for ideas! 

Kathryne has many, many other gorgeous digis to see, beside weekly free sentiments.  You can sign up on her blog and get them sent directly into your email box!

Hoping the rest of your weekend is very nice.  See you again soon, Friends!  (Any Bright Spots? Tell me!)

Do you believe in Fairies?

Good Day, my Friends!
Sure hoping this finds you doing things you love to do!  Or maybe whistling a tune while you do things you don't like to do!

Another week gone by, so it's Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge time!  This week our theme is "Spots and Stripes."  Two more wonderful sponsors- StitchyBear and Bugaboo!  Pretty good to have 2 sponsors and a weekly challenge!

My make this week is an image from StitchyBear named Pallaria1.  
She is a pretty fairy, don't you think?  Sort of classy looking!

We Penny's Girls hope to see your Spots and Stripes creations this week!  We have Top 3 winners now as well as Random winners so this a great challenge for your lovely makes.  And you only have to wait 1 week to see if you won!  Winners are posted each Wednesday at 11:55 AM, UK time.

Wishing you Bright Spots!  Bright Spots help when we are down or up.  But I sure am hoping you have more ups than downs!

Many hugs for you,
