I hope you have had a wonderful weekend!  We spent part of our weekend camping and woke up one of the mornings to snow!  

We have decided to add a new rule to the Monday Challenges. Starting this week your project must be new for this challenge (no backlinking) in order to qualify for the prize.  It is so fun to see all of your projects and I hope you enjoy playing along with each new challenge!

Now for some inspiration from my fabulous design team!!
(Be sure to visit each of their blogs for more pictures and instructions!)

I love the fun background shapes GiGi used and the face on her sunshine is absolutely adorable!!

GiGi used Divine Valentine Bakers Twine to tie this cute bow!

Inside of GiGi's cute card:


 Robin's teapot is beautiful!  I love all of the lace and ribbon she used!

The scalloped background is soooo pretty!

Love the stitching!


Heather's flowers are so pretty and the Chocolate Cupcake twine looks so cute on the flower pots!!

I love the beautiful papers Heather used and the button flower centers!

The sentiment Heather stamped on her gorgeous card is from Sweet Sentiments #2.

I love all of the fun details Marlene added to her gorgeous card!

The flowers are so pretty and the curly wire adds a fun touch!

The Airmail bakers twine looks so festive on top of the Snow white Bow!
