spotlighting with the shy bears

Hi ya'll! Hope everyone has had a super duper weekend! I know mine has been way too short-as always!! I have a card I have done today with a technique called spotlighting-I had seen this on stamp tv the other day , and couldn't wait to try it! You can see the video-on stamp tv. Of course this gorgeous little shy bear is from Squigglefly and going to be available tomorrow!!! Dont forget to check the post under this one, for a quick and easy way to win two shy bear images!!!
I have some more cards done today-but keep in mind they are not finished yet-I haven't decided what to use as a sentiment-as they are to be invites for going to a corn maze and snacks and goodies at our house after. I thought the nephews and nieces would have fun with this-and it would be a great way to get outside and enjoy some nature!!

shy bears are coming to squigglefly!!

You know the Shy Bears will be released by Squigglefly tomorrow, but right now the little fellows are a bit shy, so they've been hiding out on five of Squigglefly's design team members blogs. You need to help us find them! Go visit the design team blogs (links on my sidebar) and try to find all five bears. Then go and leave Holly a comment telling her where they are, and tomorrow will pick a commenter. If that commenter has all five blogs correct they will get to choose their choice of two of the new shy bear images making their digi debut tomorrow! Plus Holly has put together a little goodie bag from her stash as well!!

I made a Western/Horse card

I love this image! I have no idea who it is by- as it is one that one of the gals I get together and stamp with had, but I am really happy with how it turned out! What do you think?

I know life is busy! I forgot I was supposed to send out a birthday card to my aunt last week-so once again I am late-but would you like to see it? I really like how this one turned out-so I hope she likes it-and forgives me for being late! I used the Love me not image from Squigglefly and Su cardstock-dp are from DCWV(the crafty stack) and Basic Grey(June bug-and Gypsy). Sentiment done on my computer.

The other day I was really down, and I had emailed Holly, and told her my mojo was on low-(I think cuz I was feeling low!) Anyways, I told her I needed a push and so she sent me this AWESOME image, it is called "Eek"-and it is from Squigglefly! I had fun making this card-with Holly in mind-as Holly is always doing creative things like this-so here is my attempt! I colored with my copics, and added some Signo pen to make it look like there was snow on the windowpanes-after I cut them all out.
I used chalks for the floor and here is the fun part-


(the HOLLY part)

I attempted to make another image (it is called "the pounce", also from Squigglefly) POP up when you open the card!
Hope you like it Holly! I really appreciate you!!

Ohhh., this has not been a good week! Now my printer is out of ink and even though my husband filled the cartridge it says it is empty-so we have thrown it away and will have to get one this weekend! ; ( Why oh why does it seem that everything goes bad at the same time? So, I will have to make a card for you that I planned to make-later this weekend! I am going to go search for some images I may have printed out before-wish me luck!
