~I Can See It Clearly at Frosted Designs Challenge Blog & A Giveaway~

I was recently asked to be a Guest Designer at Frosted Designs Challenge Blog, and how could I say NO! I got to work with a great image from Stitchy Stamps AND be a guest at Frosted Designs...and like that wasn't enough, I even got this cute little blinkie to put on my blog... now on to the challenge this week!! 

Frosted Designs

This week over at Frosted Designs, our challenge was to use Acrylic, Vellum, Acetate, or some sort of transparency on your project. I knew immediately what I wanted to make with Valentines around the corner. I chose to work with a cute little image from this weeks sponsor, Stitchy Stamps, called Puppy Love. I thought he/she was just the cutest, and what's more loveable than a puppy! I used acetate, which in my world is just an old piece of transparency from an old package or box that I recycled. Why pay high prices when its right there in a lot of the things you buy. So I warn you now there's a lot of pictures!
So I took my adorable puppy and decided to make a little box with card set. I used the Stationary Box with lid and Envelope/Liner cutting file from The Cutting Cafe and the Words of Love Colored Printable Stamp set to accomplish this idea of mine. I used a larger puppy on the lid of my box and then smaller puppies on my cards to keep with the focal point. I think it turned out rather cute and I hope you think so as well! So head on over to Frosted Designs and play along for a chance to win a Gift Certificate to Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps!!! 
Hmmm and now to figure out who to give it to...maybe a little blog candy to help celebrate my Guest DT spot?? If anyone's interested in this posted project, please leave a comment below stating that you'd love to have this card set, and I'll do a drawing on Jan 27th, the end of this weeks challenge at Frosted Designs!
