Two Challenges You *Need* To Know About

First, a little reminder to visit For Fun Challenges for week 2 of their "New Things" challenge. You could win 7 (seven!!!) Bugaboo stamps if your entry is randomly chosen. Don't miss out!

Today begins a new challenge at Digi My World titled, "Light Up My Life". The fabulous people there have invited me to be a guest designer (thank you!)) and let me tell you, you are going to love the new stamp sets they have coming out. I chose to use Pip with a letter from the brand-spankin'-new Pip Squeak digi stamp set because getting letters in the mail lightens my life (thanks to all my far-away friends who make my day on a regular basis.)

 Is he not adorable?! I wanted to do something a little bit different, so I adapted a mini album design I found in a book to make it a Valentine design. I used lots of ribbon from various months' selections from the Really Reasonable Ribbons' ribbon club (I'm entering this card into their "ribbon and sparkle challenge"). I love how the lace looks layered over a red satin ribbon base in the first panel. For extra sparkle, I added these wonderful glitter charms I found at one of the big box crafting stores. There's also a bit of clear tinsel ribbon from Stampin' Up. I think whoever I end up sending this to will feel pretty special. Right now, it's decorating my living room. I can't get enough of Valentine crafts!

So, you have two assignments this week. Run over for For Fun Challenges for their "New Things" challenge, and visit Digi My World for their "Light Up My Life" challenge.

Now, doggie break!
For some reason, Makers Mark seems to think I'm their target audience so they send me little gifts in the mail every xmas. One year it was wrapping paper and ribbon--score! Every kid on our list had a present wrapped in the stuff (they didn't get it, but their parents did. :)) This year they sent a teeny tiny sweater, presumably for the bottle itself to wear. In an attempt to make the useless less so, we tried to see if Rev could wear it. It was a little...uh...petite for him.
 Poor Revvy. I love how you can see Weezee looking on in the background. You know she's thinking, "Well, at least they know better than to try that crap with me." Oh well. Anyone have a use for a very tiny sweater?

Lovely card & image. Love the dog ear warmer although I don't think there will be a big market for them! Jx
