Wild Orchid Challenge - Anything Goes!!! and WINNER!!! and SWEET STUFF!!!


Happy Monday, everyone!!! I hope you have all had a delightful and crafty weekend and hope you have a great week!! We have had a rainy weekend so it has been get inside stuff (argh) done...and look for those necessities for the cottage house...lolol...but it is progressing...as much as a 1920's house can progress...hahaha!! The coloring room and the paper room are almost finished and I have started to move stamps....I can't believe I am finding so much stuff and so many duplicates...I must live in a haze and suffer from old-age forgetfulness when it comes to shopping...never fear, though, I WILL share with you all!!! Here is a little snippet of the coloring room...smile...will show you the entire place when it's finished...lol...if EVER!!!!


Today is a new challenge at Wild Orchid Challenge and for this two weeks it is ANYTHING GOES!!! That's always FUN!!! So we hope you will come over and play along with us this time because you know there is a magnificent surprise from the sweet folks at Wild Orchid Crafts as always.

For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting, the DP is from the MME Love Me paper pad, and all panels are machine stitched. I used the sweet little Morehead Joy for You - Sweety image and colored her with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. Gosh if there were as many colors in Flexmarkers as there are in Copics, I would use them ALL the time...I just love that brush end!! I added a bit of Glamour Dust on her ruffles, Glossy Accents on the ice cream and ball, and pompons on the top of the hats. Isn't that little puppy the cutest thing!!!! The HELLO is an epoxy sticker. For the double horizontal I used Queen Blue Seam Binding from WOC. For the floral treatment I used Cherry Blossoms, Heather, Gypsophilia, and Hip Rosebuds, all from Wild Orchid Crafts.


On the first panel on the inside I made a banner using a SU Pennant Punch and connected them with more of the seam binding. And on the jotting panel, from the seam binding bow, I dangled a Made for You charm from the WOC Mixed Heart Charm Set.

I hope you like my little creation and will go visit the Wild Orchid Challenge blog to have a look at the gorgeous cards/projects made by the DT this time---they are gorgeous!!!!

And Now....

The WINNER of the Flexmarker SWEET STUFF.....

Thank you all so very much for your sweet and kind comments and I wish I could send Flexmarkers to each of you...but we have to let Mr Random.org make the decision...soooo....the WINNER this time is.....

Snoopy who said...

Your card is magnificent as always! I just love your creations. I agree with you about the name ... she either needs a pie or a name change. (Hmm ... now I've got a hankering for pie.)Hugs,Snoopy :D

Congratulations, Snoopy!! Please contact me before Wednesday, January 11 at midnight EST so that I can get your package out to you right away!!

AND also....

FOUND SWEET STUFF!!!! All of my FOLLOWERS know that I just love giving SWEET STUFF and the more I move my crafting to the cottage house, the more SWEET STUFF I will have for you!!! Gosh!! I just hope the mail systems get all sorted out because during the holidays the mail has been TERRIBLE!!! There are 3 packages of SWEET STUFF out there somewhere which were mailed in December and I can only track them as far as Miami, Florida....it is so darn aggravating!!!! But let's hope that things are improved by now!!! Anyway, I hope you like today's SWEET STUFF...

Sharon in Arizona said...

Hi Jacque, as usual you have created another adorable card. That stamp is soooo cute, not one I've seen before. Know what you mean about duplicates. Me thinks me shops toooo much and forget when I buy those adorable stamps and sets. I am in the process of organizing my stamps so I can get them put into a spread sheet. Hopefully that will help. What wonderful candy!!!!!!! I know I don't have any of this so I would be very happy to add to my collection!!!! Big hugs for being so generous! Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Sharon :o) No blog, email is smarch@wildblue.net.

Traci S. said...

Oh Jacque~
What a fun card! I love this little doll sitting on her bouncing ball...or is it for Pilates? I love the stripes, and the flowers are wonderful!

I really love your coloring room! How many markers and pencils could one person have? That is amazing! I wonder if you would one day show us the tips of the Flexmarker you talk about...maybe next to a Copic marker? I wish I knew the difference in the two before I continue to build up my Copic collection. Why do you like those markers so much? Thanks Jacque! You're the best!

Oh--and thank you for the opportunity for the amazing Sweet Stuff. I love Victorian style stamps...Thank you for the chance!

He IS Able!
