Magical Monday - Happy New Year, Something Sparkling

The special person to receive the random drawing prize for participating in last weeks challenge is: Roberta Smith

Please send me your address at magicintheair@att.net so I can get this out to you. CONGRATS and ENJOY!

I hope that this week finds all of you doing well and I truly hope you all had a blessed Christmas and you got to share it with the ones you love and hold dear. I know I certainly did.

This week is also Leigh Anne's last week on the Designer Team. Please make sure you continue to stop by Leigh Anne's blog to check out her lovely creations. Although you might have to give her a few months since she is in the process of moving into a new home!! THANKS a lot Leigh Anne we certainly will miss you!

This week's challenge has a little different twist to it. Since I have been giving away free images for 5 months now, I have given away 20 free images! How great is that?! So, this week along with Nilla's challenge listed below you can use "ANY" one of my images you have acquired over the last 5 months or you can use this freebie "Orson with Cake" (which was my very first freebie), or you can buy a new one from my store Paper Cupcakes. Regardless of what image you choose to use, it must be one of my images. (*)

(C) "Orson with Cake"
(left click, then right click "save as" the larger image)
"Orson with Cake" is no longer available for free... if by chance you missed this freebie, you can now find this image in my store Paper Cupcakes)

Nilla brings us this weeks challenge. Of course she wants you to use a Paper Cupcakes Image (see above paragraph (*) and she is thinking "Happy New Year - Something Sparkling!" Use blings, stars, glitter or something typically used for the New Year on your card. Your card does not necessarily have to be for New Years, just reflecting the challenge as stated.

The prize for this week’s random drawing for whoever participates in this weeks challenge and links their work back here is:


Each Designer got to pick out the image that they wanted to work with this week. The name and link to their image in my store is listed below their project.

Now for the oh so talented...

Leigh Anne, I'm sorry to see you go. I'll miss your beautiful cards.

Patti J. your card is darling!!! For some reason my computer wouldn't open the link to your blog, so I couldn't comment there.

Nina, your store looks great!!! Isn't it terrific to see your dream being fulfilled???

Thanks for this great challenge blog and the the wonderful free images you've given to us. You make this such a fun place to be.

May God richly bless you and your family in 2010.

I am so excited about this image! My grandson's 2nd birthday is today - I'm late with his card - he LOVES monkeys and with the cake in the picture, well, it couldn't be more perfect!
