Challenge #99 - Angels

Hi ya everyone - Melissa here!  What a wonderful set of projects you all shared last week!  Wasn't that challenge set by Bernie just the best...what a beautiful piece of inspiration she chose to share with us.  This week it's my turn to pick the challenge and I'm so excited to share with you a new sponsor!  I love the digital stamps this artist designs and she was happy to share her talent with the winner for this week:

 Melanie of *Wink *Wink Ink is offering a $15 gift certificate to her store!!!  Now that's generous. This week the challenge is to use an angel on your card, layout or project.  That's simple enough and this is the perfect time of year for an angel. 
 Now before you see the fabulous design teams work let's check out what Melanie has to say about her wonderful store:

"*Wink *Wink Ink is a digital stamp company that specializes in cute images of children, animals, and other fun creatures. In addition to the well drawn detailed style of our images, the thing that really sets *Wink *Wink Ink apart is the pre-colored images that are included with every stamp you buy!  These are great for doing quick projects when you don't have time to color or for use as a guide for coloring your own.  You get a colored jpg, a black and white jpg, and a transparent png file of each image for one low price.  Many stamps now come in sets with sentiments included too! "

Melanie at *Wink *Wink Ink also provided some of the cutest angel images for the design team!  Take at look at the wonderful inspiration and don't forget to link up your project using Mr. Linky below.  Also, if you are a SCS user the code is CCCW99.

Challenge #98 - Photo Inspiration

Welcome to a new Wednesday and a new challenge! Thank you for your gorgeous selection of bear cards last week everyone - it was soooo nice to see a few "older" images pulled out and dusted down too!

It is my turn (Bernie) to host the challenge this week - and I am sponsoring the prize!

Now, on to the challenge - I chose this photograph of a beautiful bedroom scene for your inspiration - what will you take from the photo - the soft pretty colours, the patchwork effect, the gingham or ruffles....? The possibilities are endless and I can't wait to see what you will do with it!

Here is how our DT interpreted the photograph
