Robyn's Fetish Challenge 153: Fairies

Good morning, friends and
Happy Easter

We're off to a bit of a late start this morning
with Easter Baskets and the overall
joy of Easter!

Today I want to share a card I made 
with the most beautiful fairy:
Fairy Fae from Delicious Doodles

Fairy Fae from Delicious Doodles

and we are being sponsored by DELICIOUS DOODLES

The PRIZE for this challenge is

4 digital stamps of the winner's choice from the

For my card, I colored the gorgeous image with Prismacolor Pencils.
The color combo was inspired by the Bo Bunny papers
from the "Gabrielle" collection.

Her wings are painted with Tattered Angels "Glam" glitter paint,
 so they have quite a bit of sparkle 
that's doesn't show up very well in the picture.

The swirl, butterflies, and corners were cut out 
from a variety of files from, 
using my Sizzix Eclips (of course) :)
That is also glitter-coated paper from DCWV.

The centers of the flowers, swirls and butterflies
have tiny little gems from Making Memories.

There are a few tiny touches of Copic Spica in "Sand", too.

Overall, this card just shimmers in the light
and it's hard to show in pictures!

Robyn's Fetish Challenge 152: Food or Drink

Good morning, friends!
I'd like to share the card I made for the 152nd challenge at the Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog.
The theme this week is: Food or Drink and we are being sponsored by The Paper Shelter.
The winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate
to the Paper Shelter Store
Here's my card:
I got to work with an adorable image called "Cool Waitress", which you can get at the shop HERE
Isn't she adorable? You should see the samples created by TPS DT members at the shop! WOW!

I was actually inspired by the theme of the challenge at The Drunken Stampers LAST week: Grease! I didn't get to enter, but the theme really got my gears a-spinnin'... and since I was the "Life of the Party" last week, I wanted to make sure I gave them a little shout-out! Thanks my drunken friends for choosing me as the winner of the "16 Candles" Challenge!! (-:

When I saw this little roller-skating cutie, it made me think of the 50's style drive-ins and for some reason, the whole time I was making this card, I was singing "Beauty School Drop-out"... I've got my little "Pink Lady" and my "Pink Cadillac" and I don't think anyone would leave this little cutie "Stranded at the Drive-In", do you?

Y'know that hind-sight is always 20/20 right? Now that I'm looking at my completed card, I sure wish the pink background piece was patterned or embossed or something... c'est la vie!

The card frame and 50's Cadillac are actually cut files from in the "Rockin and Rollin'" and "Everyday Cards" kits.

I sure hope you'll head over to the Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and join us for the "Food or Drink" Challenge and enter for your chance to win a $20 prize!!!

Guest Designing for Twist of Faith

This week, the challenge at Twist of Faith is Easter!
The challenge is being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and the winner will receive their choice of FIVE images from the RF Shop!

I was so honored to be asked to be a Guest Designer this week!

The "twist" at this challenge is to include some scripture or verse as part of the theme.
There are so many verses about Easter available, it's quite an easy challenge this week!!

I worked with the "Easter Egg" image from the Robyn's Fetish shop.

"Faith is not believing that God can, 
it is knowing that God will!"

Here are some details about my card:

I paper-pieced the egg and flower using papers from "Sugar and Spice", a Doodlebug Design Collection.
The card style is a "Center-step" card. The middle panel is raised up a little higher than the sides.

All the "dot" details are Liquid Pearls "Petal Pink". The flower is from a silk arrangement, with added Glossy Accents and pearls. The only coloring on this entire card is the green leaves! The paper is just so perfect for this image that no other embellishment seemed necessary!

Thank you so much for the opportunity to be a Guest Designer for such an uplifting challenge!

I hope you'll join me over at Twist of Faith this week and share your Easter projects!

'Til next time!

Robyn's Fetish Challenge #151: Must Use GREEN

Good morning, friends!

First of all, Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

And Happy Birthday to my wonderful hubby!!

Ha Ha! Now you're older than me again!!

This week, the challenge at the Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog is "Must Use Green".
Our sponsor is The Cutting Cafe!
The winner will receive any THREE sets from the Cutting Cafe Store!

I got to work with the "One Spring Day" set, which includes almost 90 different images.
Our challenge was to use GREEN and to use as many pieces from the set as we could in one project!

I used 6 pieces in my project:
The flower border strip, 3 different flowers, the subway art "Happy Spring" and the "Happy Spring" sentiment circle. The only coloring I did was the little green centers of the flower border. The rest is all "Print and Cut" with my Eclips!

I took another photo of my card this morning! I'm still getting used to the camera I got for Christmas and all its settings! It amazes me how different a picture can look in different lighting conditions. This morning, there is a little sunshine in my craft room windows and in all natural light, my card looks completely different!!

Hope you'll show off all your Green this week
and share with us at the Robyn's Fetish Challenge!!

Robyn's Fetish Challenge 150: Birthday Cards

Good morning friends!
Since we changed to "Daylight Savings Time", 
I'm going to save time today and get right to it!

This week's challenge is CHALLENGE # 150 "BIRTHDAY CARDS"

CHALLENGE # 150 is sponsored by

Hi, I'm Lyn, aka Spyder,  owner and soul digi artist and scribbler for Spyder's Other Corner. I started my little digi store a year after I started blogging with a few little bears and a weekly freebie and it's slowly grown since then. My claim to fame are having single cartoons and cartoon strips in National and local News Papers, Magazines, Adverts and even on plastic shopping bags! I can usually change anything you find in the store to suit your needs, a name added or maybe something removed! Someone once wanted a belly button removed from a bear and a spider's web taken off a toadstool!
All my digis are hand drawn and then tidied up on my laptop, so there will be wobbly bits! Most of them come as a Jpeg and PNG. Anything you need specially, I can usually do for you. I'm very pleased to be asked to sponsor Robin's Fetish Challenges, and wish everyone Happy Crafting!

The PRIZE for this challenge is

5 digital stamps of the winner's choice from the

I made a card and gift box set using Spyder's Birthday Bear.
The papers are  from GCD Studios (a pack I picked up at Big Lots).
The ice cream cones are buttons with the loops chopped off.
I colored with Sharpie markers and Prismacolor pencils.

This is called a "Secret Box" and can be found HERE
I made the bow on top with 3/4" strips of the same papers.

My oldest son is turning 12 this Tuesday!!
We're having a family get-together for him today
with cake and ice cream.


There are quite a few challenges this week I'd like to enter:

A Creative Need, Birthdays
Stampin with the Dragon, Anything Goes

Robyn's Fetish Challenge 149: Easter

So, have you ever completely LOST an ENTIRE day?
Or have you ever gone through the day, thinking it was another day altogether?

Yesterday, I spent the whole day thinking it was FRIDAY!

I loaded my Robyn's Fetish card in our Design Team Group "on time" and headed out to work...
around 10pm last night, someone mentioned Sunday church service in the morning and it suddenly occurred to me that it was actually SATURDAY!!

How in the world did I lose my "other" Friday? 

If anyone sees an extra FRIDAY laying around, please send it back to me, because mine was lost!

Or maybe that's just my mind... but I think I lost that a long time ago! (-:

So, anyways... this weeks challenge at the Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog is EASTER!

There is a great variety of Spring and Easter images at the Robyn's Fetish Store, like this beautiful Cross and Flowers:

I chose to make a corner bookmark this week:

I colored the flowers all in shades of purple, 
the traditional Easter color!
