wow what awesome  sponsors we have ! id like to thank each of them we really appreciate your enthusiasm and generosity with our celebration!
i have a special surprise for you too.. jodi from bugaboo stamps is sponsoring my personal blog here...shes offering 7..yep you read that right..SEVEN  free digis of your choice if youre  my winner! so.. how about you pop on over to bugaboo and check out her awesome digis then come back and let me know which is your favorite stamp or line of stamps, either one will be fine. you are going to have a hard time with just one favorite! for everyone that answers ill put your name in a hat and let my sweetieboy  grab a name out ..ill photo that and guess what youre name will be on my blog forever :) yay you .. now doesnt that just get ya wanting  to play along eh ;)  my winner will be announced on saturday january 30th. spread the word!
what ive done is made an item using digis from each of  my sponsors...
i sure hope you enjoy looking at them as much as i enjoyed using them...
first for my personal  blog  sponsor. thank you soooooo much jodie :) 
this is a tag i made  using a digi from bugaboo.. notice the lil heart on his hiney..how cute huh! i also used my cricut and george ( tag) and walk in my garden(daisies and stems) cartridges. i added m/stewart butterfly punch , foam dimensionals, ribbon, handcut  grass, stickles and colorbox fluid chalk.


  the next 3 creations are using digis from my sponsors on the CCC blog...
regina easters TheCuttingCafe 
this is from a set called social butterflies. this is one of my favortie sets.  i used the circle phrase, it reads love is like a butterfly it goes where it pleases and pleases where it goes. the hearts are not included on this i added them as extras (  using foam diminsionals for depth) using my cricut  and wild card cartridge,i also used this to cut the doily shaped card base. the butterfly is one of several beauts included with the SB set. the piece it is sitting on is a cuttlebug folder i  embossed onto coordinations paper then sanded. i added pearls and colorbox fluid chalk and a bit of doodledots with acrylic paint. regina made this project so easy with this blissful set :) yo can see it all over at the cafe :)
 
 





next  is rogerbear from lauren at  ellephantastic.. youve already seen this cutiepatootie on the CCC blog.  is he just adorable or what! look at that cute little heart on his foot, too sweet  :)  i water colored him then added some colorbox fluid chalk. used my cricut and winnie the pooh and friends cartridge for the balloons added buttons and black pearls for rogers eyes. b/g paper is crate.



and last but not least this sweet fun playful kitty ( my fave) from kristy at oddgirlplanet   isnt this just so  cute how she has kitty playing on its back having  a ball :) thank you sooooo very very much kristy!
for this i printed the digi then again onto basic grey sugar rush paper, cut that out and pop dotted it over the main image for some depth. i added rhinestones for eyes and put a couple of buttons down. thats it..:)
 
thanks so much for taking the time on this looooong post :)
dont forget to go to bugaboo then back here ....after that head on over to magdas place :)
ill see you back here on saturday  good luck!!!  XXX shelly

Those are some of the best digis I've seen. That Ruby is hilarious. I love the one about the perfect housewife being back in the 50s. Thanks for the opportunity to win.
