i'm late! i'm late!

i don't have a very important date, but there are some big things going on, and i managed to fall behind with my under-the-weatherness last week, as well as a plate heaped to the ceiling with Things To Do.

today, i'm catchin' up! gonna have to do this chronologically, i think, to avoid getting myself confuzzled. ;)

let's start with THIS BIG NEWS! - WOO HOO! FEATURED! never in a million years would i have thought my sympathy card would show up on their blog! *does a happy Peanuts dance* yeah, that's right - a big ol' tootin' of the horn here! :D

okay, now that's out of the way.... there's also last Thursday's SKETCH CHALLENGE at Design Dollies - another fabulous sketch from the amazing Kristy-Holmes-Dollie:

i LURRRRRVED playing with this sketch, but had to flip it to make it work for my photos:

photos from my parasailing adventure in Cancun, many moons ago! :) believe me when i say the paper did most of the work for me... but the fussycutting and stickling was TONS of fun!

that wrapped up last week's trifecta, which closed last night, but you still have PLENTY of time to play along HERE - projects must be linked up by this Wednesday at midnight EST for your chance to win YUMMIES! :)

then on Friday, we posted the new Ribbons and Rubons challenge at The TownScrapper - some GORGEOUS work from our Scrapettes, and a couple of sneak peeks! yes, we have a bunch of the BRAND NEW Victoria Case stamps already available, but Victoria's been BUSY, and wowing us at every turn. there are LOADS of gorgeous new stamps in production RIGHT NOW, so we have sneak peeks to share! play along with the challenge - there's a GORGEOUS new Victoria Case stamp up for grabs! :)

today, i have a brand new Color Challenge for you at Design Dollies - i had the PERFECT new stamp to use, and couldn't wait to put it to the test! (it didn't disappoint - hooray for $1 stamps at Jo-Ann!)
so... the challenge:

and my card:

is this meditating panda not crazy-cute?! :D
okay, so play along with this one for a chance to win THIS prize:

your project must be NEW, you must link BACK to the Dollies in your blog post, and make sure you link up by SUNDAY, March 28th at midnight EST. :)

and last, but certainly not least, we have a new SHOWCASE over at The TownScrapper - yummy eye candy for all you rubber stampers! i TOLD you there were lots of fabby Victoria Case stamps being released - this is LOLA, and she's brand-spankin'-new! coming soon, ONLY to The TownScrapper!

LOVE her! had to use some yummy BasicGrey and Cosmo Cricket papers for this one, added a bit of mesh from a bag of pink grapefruit, a bow in her hair, some Prima flowers and bling, and a fabulous sentiment from Unity, and VOILA! :)

i'm entering my Lola card for....
the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab - the chair is GORGEOUS, and i was inspired by the colours (brown, cream, red and blue accents), plus the mesh on my card mimics the wicker pattern.
and for Sketch 131 at Mojo Monday (had to turn it and lose the ribbon for this one)

wait till you see the REST of the sweet images our Scrapettes get to play with these days! have a peek OVER HERE today, and see what i'm talkin' about! :D
