One I can show u now. One I have to wait until the end of July I think.... It is an easel card. Super easy to make. I have some images I am coloring on now,. to get them done and finished for challenges that are upcoming. :) I'm just good like that! lol The image is Whipper snapper, the papers are Basic Grey.

it is a bittersweet day.... Yesterday was the last day of school for the kids. While I look forward to summer vacation, I dread summer vacation. I trade in home work checking and lunch packing for being entertainer, so I don't hear "Mom, I'm bo-ooored." So I have decided that I will close myself in my dungeon, I mean scraproom.

you.... This week, I am bringing another exciting challenge to you from Robyn's Fetish. This week, out task was to create a card, using an image from one our new artists, GLITTER GABE. We were to also create a card using our favorite embellishment. This task, was kind of tough for me, because I love all kinds of embellishments. The one I find myself reaching for time and time again, is my cuddle bug. I LOVE embossing. I like the look. I love that I can dress it up, or down, which ever suits my fancy. So this week, I used bazzil bling, and my martha stewart punch. A little ribbon to make it pop and of course my other right hand, my nesties.... I think if I went on survivor, I would take them as my one thing. I can't tell you how effective it would be, but I would have some damn pretty leaves on MY hut.... lol
Friday, May 21, 2010

Hola!!! Good Wednesday morning to all of you! Today is another installment of The Digi Shack's Wednesday sketch challenge!! Woot-woot! I really liked this weeks sketch, there were so many possibilities!! I chose the latest cupcake digi stamp Toni came up with! I, myself have been making a ton of cupcakes, from the books "What's New Cupcake" and "Hello cupcake". Did you KNOW there is a right and a wrong way to make a cupcake?? And adding buttermilk in place of the water will give you a denser cupcake? Yet the mind reels. Anyhoo- So this weeks sketch from The Digi Shack, I had cupcakes on the brain....
Friday, May 14, 2010
This week, for Robyn's Fetish, the challenge is to use butterflies some where on your card. I chose the cute kitty image and I added butterfly brads that i had in my stash...TOTALLY forgot I had them!!! Don't forget to check out the rest of our design team! And this challenge, will run from friday to thursday! Make sure you link back here with your creation!!

If you LOVE digi’s you’ll love being part of our family! We are looking for new design team members. We’ve recently lowered our prices on our images to just $1 each to do our part in saving the world of paper crafter’s money! We are also adding a few new lines to our shop including some fabulous templates!
U.S. and International English speaking applicants
Please read the following very carefully before submitting your application. It is very important that youfollow the directions as that too is part of the determining factor of you becoming a DT member
· 3 pictures of your VERY BEST work. Photos must be sized at 640x480. This can either be cards, layouts with pictures or altered items
· A paragraph (not a sentence) about you and why you want to be a Shack Sistah and what you will do to promote The Digi Shack.
· A clickable link to your blog
· A clickable link to your online gallery or galleries
· A list of clickable links to all Design teams you are on. It is favorable that you are not active on more than 3 design teams while you are with TDS.
What is expected of DT members?
If you are chosen to be a Shack Sistah you will be expected to:
· Complete weekly challenges and post to your blog on the challenge day(s).
· Post comments and photos on SNR and PCP and other social networking sites.(this means you will have to have a user account at SNR and PCP)
· You will also be required to leave comments on blogs for all of our TDS fans that participate in our challenges and your sistah’s blogs
· Participate in ALL TDS events where sufficient notice is given.
· It is not required but we encourage all DT members to submit their artwork to magazine publication at least once a month. A list of publications will be provided for you on the DT blog.
You will also be required to participate in Digi Day on SNR on the 1st Saturday of EVERY MONTH for your term.(this date is subject to change without notice) as well as our monthly Ustream live video feeds (you do not need to have a webcam but you do need to sign up for a free Ustream account so that you can participate in the live chats)
You must use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome as your internet browser in order to view all of our images – both safer than IE and free to download. Our images are not always visible on IE. This does not mean if you use IE you have to delete it, you just need to use Firefox or Chrome while working with TDS images and blogs. You can have more than one browser installed on your computer and it should not harm or interfere with your system.
You must also know and understand how to use digital images. No special software is required but you must be able to print digital images in order to showcase them. Further, you must have a working knowledge of blogging software and understand the basic principles of inserting links, adding photos, etc.

What do DT members get as part of being on the team?
You will receive free TDS images! This round we are doing things a bit different. Once selected as part of the DT you will receive 3 images of your choice to create with to announce your position on the team. Once I see that these three images are used you may choose 3 more and so on. I’ve found that if I freely give out images then they are not being used to showcase TDS. This isn’t just about getting free images, your position on the DT is to showcase and promote The Digi Shack. As long as you are creating with our images and showcasing them, you will receive all of your requested images. Please remember that this is a serious commitment and I expect that you treat it as such if you are chosen. Please do not apply if you can not commit.
Monthly we will be releasing new images and you will automatically be sent those images before the release date so that you can sneak peek those new arrivals. Those new releases do not count towards your images of choice.
If you think you have what it takes to be a Shack Sistah email your application with DESIGN TEAM in the subject line by May 15, 2010 – Any applications with anything more or less than DESIGN TEAM in the subject line will be disqualified.

This week, at The Digi Shack, our assignment was to create a card, using the image printed on design paper. Well, I chose the fish playing the guitar...(I just LOVE this quirky little bugger) anyhoo, since I did the one lay out in green and blue and dots I cased my won design and created another one, but this time I printed my favorite lil fishie out on design paper, from basic grey. (my fave paper line)I used the lime rickey paper, which i thought was fitting, b/c it is dotty and orange!!! I colored his arms blue this time, because orange and blue are compliments and I think they look smashing together!! Make sure you head over to The Digi shack and see the other amazing images she has to offer, and make SURE you check out the rest of the design team list located to the right -------------> and see the amazing talent that resides within!!!!
Peace out, girl scout!

and a dreary one at that. :( We are supposed to have rain for the next few days UGH. So I have decided to stay in my sanctuary, nice and dry. aaaahhhh. Well while I am in here I might as well create SOMETHING. So I have. For your viewing pleasure are two wedding or anniversary cards. Why you ask? I have absolutely NO idea. None. Not one reason comes to mind, I don't KNOW anyone getting married any time soon. Sure there are new babies coming, but NO weddings. Oh well. They were fun and easy peasy to make regardless!

Tuesday is laundry day here, so that means in theory my laundry is finished...Wednesday is when I get to share with you not only one, but 2, yes 2 cards. One from Robyn's Fetish, and the other from The digi shack.the first card, is from the Digi shack. This week, it is water color wednesdays. Well when I first heard this, I thought, man I have NO skill when it comes to water color. Au contraire mon fraire. (or something to that effect)I indeed DO have water color technique... they use water color pencils!!! Surprised my self, I did!! I cut out the egg, embossed it with assorted folders for my cuttle bug, and put the adorable bunny from The Digi Shack in the center of the flower with a pop dot!! Cool,huh?? So that is card number one...
The second card is for Robyn's Fetish!
Wednesdays there are Wacky Wednesdays freebies!! Woohoo! I was given this image to play with for another challenge, and here she is again!! I just LOVE her! She is such fun to color!

aside from being up with the chickens, it is not turning out to be such a bad day!!
This week has flown by. Seriously flown. It has been rather exciting for me. 1. I was accepted to another design team! Wow! Lil ol me. 2. I was hired as a sub for a rather large school district. Holy crap. I am a secondary education/English major. (although looney will argue that one tooth and nail, b/c of my **stellar** typing skills.
Yet I digress.
the moist important thing on my agenda today, is the Robyn's Fetish Challenge!!
This week your challenge (should you choose to accept it, if to create ANYTHING but a card. Yup. any ol thing you want. Myself, when I saw this, I thought...hmmmm, I can do this! I made a candle! Yup. Ok, well lemme rephrase. I ALTERED a candle, using a digi image. I BOUGHT the actual pillar its self. I know, I know technicalities, but I did not want my adoring fans thinking I was THAT craftastic! Don't let's be silly now. The thing was EASY-PEASY. First, I got the image from Robyn. (and sake's alive she has a BUNCH at the store to choose from) then, I printed the digi on tissue paper. Yup. plain ol tissue paper. (and not the tissue you use for your arse, or nose) I then colored the images with my prisma pencils and gamsol. I attacked the ribbon at top with zip dry, chiseled a hole for the brad,threw on some stickles, and wa-la. Done. Finito. PHEW!oh wait a cotton pickin minute. AFTER I colored the image, i put them on the candle, then wrapped the candle with a piece of wax paper, (to keep these beauties that I cut out ON the candle) Then I used my heat gun to heat the image onto the candle. The warm wax seeps through the tissue paper. cool huh? It is **Almost** as fun as shrinky dinks. OOOOOOOOOOOOH, what a FAB idea! Run a sheet of shrink film through your printer with your digi image, color, cut and bake! I have a daisy troop, that these would look super cute with on a bracelet or a necklace..... Ok, off to find the shrink paper...
make sure though, that you check out the rest of the design team, over on the side bar, and see what these talented ladies have created!! We just added 5 new members, so make sure you stop by and leave some bloggy love, they LOVE to get comments!!!
Wednesday, March 3, 2010
i used to loathe Wednesdays. I am nto sure why, but I did. Never cared much for that day, kinda like the middle finger of you week. Taunting you... weekend isn't here yet... lol. BUT, now, Wednesdays have a WHOLE new meaning. It is wacky wednesday over at RObyn's Fetish stamps!!. That means that you, my frined, get a digital image absoutely free!!!! Well now! Isn't that grand? And as if that was not enough, she has lots of other images for your perusing pleasure. So you buy a stamp. That's step one. You print it out and all, and then you think to your self, now what? I will tell you what... You make a card! Add it to a scrap book page, what ever your pea pickin little heart desires! If you get hung up on an idea for a card, just look to the right----*there is a list of her design team!! Check out the talent this lady has scored!! If you stop by their blogs, don't forget to leave bloggy love! We all like to know who's been visitin!
and, if any of you are wondering what ever happened with the camera? **blushing** Not only did I have a wrong setting on my camera, I some how (and lard have mercy, i have NO idea how) I took pics with no flash card. YUP, here I was snapping away, all the while the flash card was safely stowed in the printer... smacks forhead="" ugh. So this time it was operator error, something I never thought I would succumb to.HOWEVER- I did spill a 16 oz coke, all over my laptop.... Um yeah. That's not so great for the laptop. Bad news? lost all the files. Good news? It is covered by Dell. PHEW. Now, just the inconvience of not having it for 2 weeks. I will go through WITHDRAWL!>
Saturday, February 27, 2010
and here this week, the challenge, is to make a scrap book layout. This one, was hard for me because I have not scrapped in like i dunno a BILLION years. (Or so it would seem) Anyhoo- I did the layout but left it blank and would add my pics later... took the photo, and tired to upload it and NOTHING. Had the hubs look at both things, and he's scratching his head. We think it is something with the camera, which if it is, that is hugely disappointing, since I have had it just over a year. If it is the computer, I am going to cry. Seems like computer problems are running rampant in these parts lately! My one friend just lost her hard drive and a few months before that her other computer, the mother board went! UGH.
