The Stamp Fairy challenge...

I joined in this weeks challenge at The Stamp Fairy again, it is to make your own FLOWERS. I thought this little bear was PERFECT for some flowers!!! Oh how I wish I could go out and garden!! Brrrrr!!! Too chilly!!!

I used some paper from K & Company called Life's Journeys. This is Donna Sunbonnets - isn't she sweet?? If you think these images are too cute, head over to Gerda's store to pick yourself up some cuties!!! The flowers are layers of the same DP using my SU flower punch, and some pink rhinestones in the centers. The ribbon is Regal Rose (SU). I also added some crystal lacquer to the water for dimension.

So, head over to the store &/or challenge blog and get yourself some CUTE images, and then play along this week!!!! I WON LAST WEEK - Top 3....wheeeeeee!!!! So if I can win, you certainly can!!!!

Have a great Saturday!!

Prayer requests...

Please pray for my sister and her family (and many other people in the area) who are in Cairns, Aus - Cyclone Yasi is the biggest cyclone to ever hit Australia. I am terrified for them. I know they are prepared and are thinking positive, but I know prayers will help. Thank you!

UPDATE: My sister Kim heard from my sister Cindy who is in Cairns - they are all fine, the house is fine. That was all she got, as her cell phone was breaking up. I am SO RELIEVED!!!! Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts!!! Hopefully their power will be up soon too!!!

NEW UPDATE: I got emails from my sister and my nieces & nephew! They are all A-OK!!! Scary situation, but they made it through!!! What a RELIEF!!!!!

FOR THE BIRDS SNOWMAN is the new freebie this week from Faith at Designed2Delight...if you played along last week!!!! If not, you can buy him HERE, then play along and get next weeks freebie!!!!

I was on a roll with the DP Sunny Garden from SU, so this card is a different colour combo for snowmen, but I kinda like it! There are pinks and oranges and yellows and greens in the DP so I tried to tie all those colours in with the rest of the card. I addd 3D snow to his hat and mitts...and to the ground. The sentiment is from a TAC set I've had for several years!

Thanks for stopping by!!!!
