Winter Fun Card Winner

Card181Congratulation go to Linda of Weston, WI this time for her card entry
“Winter Fun”  

The real beauty of this card is the simplicity of it all…. snowflake embossed background, with our lady (K09059 Girl on Skates) skating across the pond….  or as this winter has been…. over the city sidewalks.

She  sees a friend, waves and the day just gets better. This is what I see with this Card, well deserving of being the winner of this ….  Winter Fun Card Contest.

Rose-Marie has let her drawing hand loose on the beach. Yes she has had enough of winter…… bring on the sand, sun and seagulls for the best afternoons ever.
Okay…. 2 out of three ain’t bad.

These new images will be coming this spring, so take a look pre-order and be ready to blow the winter blues away

These new stamps will be released this spring. They work together… they work with older stamp in the FWI line…. Take a look, let us know if you want to pre-order and be the first on the Beach.

Christmas Card Winner

Card172In the twilight of night, a bell rings from a little country church in the woods. Horses are lined outside at the rail and people are gathering for midnight service. More people will arrive soon as you can hear the jingle of bells coming down the road. There is a bit of mist in the air and joyous peace all about…… This is what I see with this Card, well deserving of being the winner of this years….  Christmas Card Contest.

Congratulations go to Christine of Belleville, ON with her wonderful entry…. she has done it again.  Christine has used one of our new release stamps (now listed in Best Sellers) with a couple that have been around for a while.  (yes we keep our stamps in production and all of these are still available)   Well done Christine, the winner of our Christmas Card Contest.

Hey!! we don’t have to go far to find it. In your Card, it doesn’t matter if it is a “Play in the Snow” or a “On the Ice”, it must express the essence of the Card Contest theme

Looking Forward to seeing Your Cards

It’s beginning to look like…….

Winter & Snow…..  doesn’t look all bad…. think of it as building materials, or ammunition. Relax for a cool crispy day when the snow goes “crunch” under you feet, or when a light powder of snow appears on the tree branches. Okay so maybe your car gets stuck… but that’s not the point………… alright lets face it…. all that winter wonderland white fluffy stuff…..  looks better on a Card.  Card163.jpg

For snowflakes, & snowmen, winter landscapes and more …. we have a wide variety of winter images for your Cards.

Old or new…. it would be difficult to  pick a favourite image from the line up or in
Rose-Marie’s 30 NEW IMAGES 

Card161

 

 


Would it be…

M1186 “Three Pines” with trees to the sky,
H1185 “Little Country Church” nestled along a quiet country road,
H1190 “Snow Friends” somebody had one too many flakes….. or
L1200 “Christmas in the City” sit and enjoy a day in the Park….

Lets put winter where it looks the best…. on Cards made by You!!!
Cheers

“Cat” Days of Summer

18082601-FThe “Dog” Days of Summer, occur at the end of July when the “dog star” Sirius rises and falls with the sun. And it’s usually really hot outside. But more importantly the “Cat” Days of Summer. … It’s the period of summer when cats are at their laziest. This month — which results in lots of catnaps….and, yes, you’re right, that could be anytime of the year……

For years our black cat Midnight was a solo act…. then along came Dusk & Dawn and a glaring of other barn cats to the back porch. It seems Rose-Marie (who is allergic to cats) has a little soft spot and has been feeding them. 

Research she said….. and thus came the stamp set P968 Nine Lives of Midnight”  This is a set of nine different silhouettes of Midnight that will fit in and around any Card.  Consider this stamp set on your next visit…..

For these and other great stamps go to Frog’s Whiskers Ink in Campbellford and online (Click Here)

Card Contest Winner

Card159.jpgOld Stuff Winner

Congratulations go to Christine of Belleville our “Old Stuff” Contest Winner.  Christine has won many times in the past and her Cards just keep getting better. 

She said she found an old picture with the old clay pots, old watering can and the old spade garden shovel. She even used an old pair of scissors to trim the edges with the scraps, no doubt, she dumped those scraps into the old wastebasket.  So this is an “Old Stuff” Card

Then she said she “framed it” using the stamp M11036 Lily Frame….. but she enlarged the frame part by cutting out the lines section of the frame and making the frame appear longer…. as all good stampers know, “You don’t always use every stamp the way it was designed”
Once again Congratulations Christine…… lets see what you have for us next!

Send us your card creation for our monthly card contests. The winner gets a $20.00 store/show/online credit. Not every fancy card wins, not every dazzling card wins…. the Card that wins is the one that feels right for the occasion. Please note that your Card…. must incorporate one or more of Frog’s Whiskers Ink or Rosewood stamps or products in the design of the card.

In our next Card Challenge ….. ……, lets take a look at “ICE CREAM” because  National Chocolate Ice Cream Day is June 7th   However, we probably don’t need any additional incentive to eat Chocolate Ice Cream. With the arrival of warm, summer weather, cooling off with a little (or a lot) of chocolate ice cream is a natural. …. So let’s enjoy it…. , Please note… your Card must express the essence of the Card Contest theme

 
Looking Forward to seeing Your Cards
