Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Eye Spy the Buttons

Anything Goes Just Use Digi
This is a new challenge blog on the block.
They also have an online store.

Monthly Challenge
Challenge Kit provided

I love the colors in this kit. It came with 2 designer papers and several images.
I really didn't do much but print out the papers and layer the flower image
over the purple paper and pop dot it on the panel. In my stash I found
coordinating floss and buttons. I made the button arrangement similar to
one the images provided. This is a sweet set. Join in the challenge and
you might win the monthly prize. I did last month and I'm so happy with
my new papers.

Wish + Stamp

I'm not at all sure about this one.
I like how the masking turned out for Wish and 123. Well, until the
1 came off and it got smudged a bit. I started with a wood veneer
postcard. Put stickers where I wanted the word and #s then sponged
on Black Soot Distress Ink. I used 3 sets of eyes, one swirl and one feather

Pink and Brown

The ATC base is kraft card stock stamped with starbursts in brown.
Three rows of brown and pink ribbon, 3 buttons and 1 flower make
this disign. Simple, but I like it.

Be here tomorrow for the announcement of my winner for last
week's Flutter By Weds Butterfly Hunt. There will also be a
new challenge for you at Flutter By Weds.
tomorrow is Wacky Weds Freebies at
Robyns Fetish. And, if you haven't already,
check out all of Robyns brand new digi stamps.

Do you remember my New Year's Resolution to get my
unmounteds all cataloged? Well, yesterday, I got a big batch finished.

See ya' tomorrow.
