Hello to all, 

I want to thank everyone that joined us in the fancy fold challenge. The gallery was filled with awesome work. The team and myself are always so happy to see how much you enjoy playing. So let's give it up for our winner:
Such a pretty creation Tracey shared last week. Love the pink all over, the hippo ballerina and beautiful embellishments. Please email me peggy and I will let you know how to claim your prize.

and now on to our new challenge of the week:


and our Sponsor Digi doodle shop has shared the most awesome fashion images with us, so the Design team sure showed us their "inner fashionista". How about yours?

Here is a little about our Sponsor:

Digi Doodle Shop is the results of a mother and daughter’s love for the arts and crafts.  It was started a little over 3 years ago with a little more than 100 stamps, and has since then grown to almost 500 stamps.  Joy (the mother of this team) designs realistic images, while Judy (aka/daughter) loves the “fun side of life”, and create images with a cartoon flair.  Having these two complimenting styles have enabled 
Digi Doodle Shop to offer a wide variety of stamps. 

Donelda  gave her card a romantic feel with the beautiful ribbon and pink roses, a perfect match for this 1800's Vintage dress model

Deena added colour all around her uncoloured image. Amazing how design papers makes this image come out so beautifuly. Love the buttons too.
 Lindsey kept it monochromatic and vintagy. Love the feathers and triple panel for the image. Miss Lindsey style!

Kathleen used the 1800's fashion image and made this a vintage and feminine look. Beautiful embellishments with the buttons, spool and cute ribbbons. Gotta love the roses too.

...and here are mine
I used the 1900 & 1920's fashion images   
1930's fashion lady
 1900's & 1920's vintage

juelmarie has created a beautiful sponged version. 
This is elegant vintage at it's best.

Jaime used three beautiful images on her project.
 Love the faded grey and vintage look. Special creation here.

Peggy here, first I want to thank all the beautiful entries we had last week ... This week's winner is CARLY and she has created such a cute heart box for kids. Check out her blog,to have a look at all the pics,  it's so pretty. I was amazed at the talent of this young cardmaker, she is only 13 and draws her own sketches and digi images. Congratulations Carly, please contact Deena to claim your prize.

Now, on to this week's challenge which is:


Make a card of any kind of project that will show us what it means to you.

This week's sponsor is our own Deena's images from A creative need.

Donelda's card is really welcoming. The design papers she used makes you feel right at home in some cute lost cottage in the woods,doesn't it.

Juelmarie has used Deena's cottage window that just bounces off her card. Love how the woodgrain comes out on your card. Thank you for playing on your week off. 

Lindsey has again amazed us with this pretty feminine paper pattern and Deena's new cute love birds. Love the sponging girl!
What a fun gift tag to attach on a homewarming gift! Lindsey has thought of everything for the new home owner.
and here is mine. (Peggy) I just love this pretty wooden chair Deena drew. I tried to give it a weathered paint look with a grey copic and signo white gel pen.

Bernie has used the same cool heart chair from Deena's new images. Love that she printed it on kraft cardstock. Wonderful sewing and country feel. Thank you for playing on your week off, what a darling.

This is Jaime's door card. Love the embossing
around the doors and the contrast in colors.
