Good morning everyone,

It's a beautiful snowy day here in Indiana. I'm just loving the snow. It's my grand baby's first snow and she's also lovin' it. We're going to buy her a snow suit soon! I'm so looking forward to the years ahead raising my Kylah. It was just so difficult raising my 2 girls as a single mother. I didn't really get to enjoy being a mother. Now I can enjoy raising my grand daughter. My husband loves her as his own. We're going to have some wonderful years together.
My mac is being worked on, so I'm having to use my old pc. This pc isn't connected to our new scanner/printer so I can't scan any of my new art projects that I"ve been working on. I've been taking some online classes from Jane Davenport. She's just a wonderful artist. I'm taking a class called, "Joynal" It's about drawing fairies, unicorn, mermaids and making your own storybook. I have 3 pages done and I'll post them when I get my mac back.
So, for now I'll just dig into the archives and grab an old image for you all today. I hope it's inspirational and you can make something with it. :) Tell your friends about my blog please. I'll be posting lots of free images.
Have a happy day my friends!! Love you all!

Hi everyone,
Well, now that I'm closing the store, I'm going to use this blog as my personal blog. I hope you will all stick with me. I'm trying to learn new techniques and spread my artistic wings. There are so many things I want to learn and I need lots of feedback. I'll also be posting random free digi's. Some from the store and some that will be new. I hope you can use this image and make amazing works of art. Thank you all for reading and I hope to hear from you in the comment section...

Challenge #63: Gift Packaging

Well, as we start to wrap up the end of the year, and the end of our time here together with this challenge blog, we wanted to take a moment to thank you all so much for the great memories over the past few years!
The inspiration you have shared with us in our challenges and our TSB Groups and communities around the web has been invaluable! As we get ready to move on to newer and better things, we are just a little sad to let go of this place we have loved so long!
We're not quite ready just yet!
We still have TWO more challenges to play and we hope you'll join us for your LAST chance to claim images from The Stamping Boutique before they're gone!!

I want to do things a little different here today! I will announce the winner and Top 3 of last week's challenge in just a bit, but I want you to see the projects our team has made for the challenge this week, first!! These ladies have so much talent and creativity and it is truly a pleasure to bring you their work every week!

Our challenge theme this week is: Gift Packaging!











Now that you are feeling inspired, I can show you last week's results!

Love this little mischievous guy!
He really pops with that green background!
