It came to my attention that i left off one of the sneak peeks of a seriously talented Design Team Member. She made an über cute Jashen card and it just got missed in the blog. Since then she has done 2 more BEAUTIFUL cards featuring Birthday Lauren.

These were all made by the fabulous Dawn Wheeler!

are these seriously not some of the most beautiful cards you've ever seen?

And just since i'm showcasing some of dawn's cards... i'm gonna show you some recent ones she's done with some of the already released fairies...

OMG - Did you SEE?

It's time for another OMG did you SEE Wednesday! I sure hope these ladies dont mind if i post their creations on the blog! :)

These are both entries from last weeks challenges. I just adore these cards!

First is Anita Hovey's card. She says the card took her forever to create... well in my opinion it was well worth her efforts because this card is absolutely PHENOMENAL!

Do you see how 3d this card is? Even the fairies have 2 wings each. Every piece is separate. I'm not kidding, this card blows me away!

My other card to share with you is by Heather Lee-Reppen

I just love how she used the sketch to create planets! At least i think they are planets. If they arent planets, lets just let my brain think they are. haha. Is this not a seriously fun card for a little boy?! I just adore it.

And then one last project and it's being displayed at Funkie Munkie Scraps
and it was created by the über talented Rachel Henahan. It's a candy dish for the store... she's so good at thinking outside of the box!

She used the head of the monkey in Monkey Business as a template to etch into the glass! How stinkin' cool is that?!

Ok, thats what i got for today!!!! Happy Hump Day Craftin' everyone! :)

Friday Feature

I'm sorry if you came today to see an actual stamper as friday's feature! Instead i'm using this post to tell you how the new and improved Friday's Feature is going to work! :)

After the plethera of talented submission we had for the design team, it just killed me to not take so many more talented ladies! Deciding on the team was a whole lot of combinations of deciding what would be best and then there were still so many more i wanted.

SO, Christi (the design team leader) and I decided we'd do friday's feature a wee bit different. Instead of just showcasing randomly (when i was sometimes asking just the day beforehand if i could show off their creations!) the Friday Feature gals will know in advance. And more than 1 day in advance! The Friday Feature's for the month will be announced the first day of the month. The friday Features will get their very own discount code just like the design team and they can order themselves some fun new stuff. Each Friday a new gal will be featured and she can actually prepare some cards just for her week. So, in other words, it's like a guest design team of sorts. :)

So there is no Friday Feature this week because there wouldn't be enough time for anyone to prepare. So stay tuned!!!! There is a lot to look forward to starting in April! :)

OMG - Did you SEE?

It's another OMG - Did you SEE wednesday! Sorry this post is going up a little late ladies. We have been taking advantage of some glorious weather! And i'm getting way behind on work stuff! Looks like it's going to be another late night for me!

Anyhoo - for today's OMG Did you SEE i've decided to showcase some of the design teams submissions! I'm not showing EVERYTHING but just some of the ones that really stood out from the design team. So you probably didnt see! Which is why i just have to show you!!! :)

Have a fabulous day everyone!
