Funday Friday is Here!

I am excited to say my computer is working again! I hope everyone in any snow covered area was safe and warm this week. Our "blizzard" was a "fizzle"...we were due for over 12 inches and we barely had 6 inches. But I can't complain, especially since I couldn't get the snow blower working! So I got my exercise in for the day and then came in to a nice hot cup of chai tea with TONS of fresh whipped cream....yummmy...


But on to our Funday Friday - use a tool you've been neglecting! Now that left me a whole bunch of items to choose from...lol! But I've been working a lot with my COPICs lately and decided to dig out my Spritzer and dust it off.

To make the COPICs fit, you have to take out the screw and take out the barrel. When you put the barrel back in be sure to line up the flat side so the barrel doesn't get stuck and you can also put the screw back in.

So here are the details for this week's challenge: Our sponsor is Fitztown and it starts Friday, January 30th 12:00 AM (eastern time) and ends Friday, February 6th 6:00 PM (eastern time). My creation for this week...
 .

It's a little hard to see, but on the corrugated cardboard I spritzed all three blue shades from her winter coat. I also spritzed the darker blue on top of the image. On the inside I decorated a little bit. On the white card stock I spritzed the lighter color of blue so it would give a very slight background to write on. All the spritzing is a little hard to see in the pictures but it all looks awesome in person.

Anything Goes at Funday Friday

Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo. I just love when Bugaboo is our sponsor! If you haven't checked them out yet you are missing out on some adorable digis. I have a hard time picking my digi when Bugaboo sponsors. 

Our Challenge - Anything Goes - so have fun and create away!
 Starts: Friday, January 16th 12:00 AM (eastern time)
Ends: Friday, January 23rd 6:00 PM (eastern time)

Here is what I created for this week's challenge. 

This is the Sign It - Dog Condolence digi. Fortunately no one I know has lost their pup but I wanted to have some cards in my stash for times like this. I realized when I scanned the card you really can't see the green paw print tape in the middle. Next time I will need to be sure to center the paw print. If I hadn't glued the lower heart on already I could reposition it but the heart is firmly glued in place and I don't want to rip the paper. I scrapped my stash for this one so paper ripped in the wrong place would require a whole new design...yikes!

Bling it on for Funday Friday!

Welcome to the new year! 
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and is looking forward to the new year. I haven't made any resolutions, instead I am making at least one small, but meaningful change each month. I've started with eating a healthy breakfast every day, and honestly, I do think it is making a difference. I am making a veggie and fruit smoothie. Now I have no intention of giving up my coffee...but breakfast is now more than just coffee. How about you? Any positive changes for the new year? 

Our sponsor this week is Little Blue Button Stamps (LBBS). If you haven't checked them out, you definitely need too. They have some super adorable stamps. They are one of our new sponsors for this year and I think they might be my favorite :)  I'm looking forward to working with them this year.

Our Challenge - It's a New Year, Bling it On!
 Starts: Friday, January 9th 12:00 AM (eastern time)
Ends: Friday, January 16th 6:00 PM (eastern time)

Here is what I created for this week's challenge. 
I am totally of the opinion that life is better with bling! So I was excited to go overboard with this one. I used glitter paper and stickles and bling. The digi is Cutie in Wonderland. The little bottle in her hand says "drink me". I thought the card would be cute to pair with a bottle of wine when I go to visit some friends. I colored in the flowers with various Gelatos and then did a slight "wipe" of clear stickles down the center of each and in the middle. It also made me realize that I need to expand my Gelatos collection...I had no pink...yikes!
