My Favorite Image....and a winner!

Thanks to the ladies who played along with our "warm and fuzzy" challenge!  The winner of a template from A Perfect Presentation is.....
Here's her warm and fuzzy creation.

Our next challenge is easy-peasy!
Use your favorite holiday image.
It doesn't get much easier than that, so you have no excuse to not play along.  And if you do play along, you may get to join me and the team as a guest designer in May!

 I always enjoy perusing the websites of recently discovered stamp companies.  There are so many different styles out there, so it's fun to see what everyone is working with.  Here's what the design team decided to work with this week... 

 Alyssa used an image by Tickled Pink.

 Lisa used an image by High Hopes.

 Kerry used an image by Little Loud Stamps.

Louise used an image by Magnolia.

Patty used an image by PaperTrey Ink.

Judy used an image by Sketching Stamper.

Joan got this image as a free download, but can't remember where.

Becky used an image by Hero Arts and sentiment by Art Warehouse.

And I decided to use an image by My Favorite Things.

So now it's your turn. 
Dazzle us with your craftiness and show off your favorite image!

Cut it Out!

Hey there stampers!
It's Friday and that means a brand new challenge!

This week our designers got to play with any Christmas image they wanted to.  The only requirement was to use the paper piecing technique.  And that's my challenge for you today.

Chose your favorite holiday image or maybe one that hasn't seen ink in way too long.  We all have those, right?  Use the paper piecing technique on your holiday card and leave us a link!

One winner will be chosen next Thursday to be a guest designer next month!

How about a little inspiration from my hard working design team?
