It's Friday and it's Challenge Day!!!

Happy HAPPY Friday everyone!!!  This truly has felt like a long week.  But I have some fun things to show you today.  I'm going to put two posts together here, to save myself some time, and spare myself the multiple posts today.

First I have my DT card for this weeks challenge over at
The Stamping Bazaar. 
The challenge this week is simply to USE PUNCHES.  The challenge requires that you use an image from the Stamping Bazaar.  I promise you'll love them, they are so sweet!

Okay, so here is my card using Marvin - You can find him here.  He was part of the Halloween release, but look at how cute he is, he doesn't have to be used for ONLY Halloween.  Even bats fall in love, don't they?

Since the challenge this week is to USE PUNCHES, I went punch crazy.  First my sentiment is punched using an oval punch from Stampin' up, and the heart punch as well as the heart border punch are both from Martha Stewart.  The papers are from DCWV, and the flowers are prima flowers.  so simple, but yet LOTS of Valentine fun using this adorable little "Marvin the Bat"

Now for the 2nd half of my post, my DT card for this weeks
Phindy's Place Challenge.  
This weeks challenge theme is "Valentines", and any image you choose to use is welcome.  Of course if you do actually use a Phindy's image, you get to enter your name twice for the random drawing.  How cool is that? 

ANYWAY....  I decided to use "Mine & Yours" from Phindy's Shop , and of course I had to just add a tiny bit of altering to this image, which just so happens to be, putting the words on the cookies.  that's it....  Not only that, I decided to make this card an easel card, in the shape of a cookie jar.  Talk about fun!!!!  I hope you enjoy it!

I think my brain is completely fried, because I can't seem to think of what else I should be saying....  What a tiring week, that's all I can say, and my almost 16 year old son is driving me batty with his refusing to put headphones on to play his guitar.... I'm going to go INSANE!!!  ha ha....

Anyway, I hope that you have enjoyed my post today, I'm sorry that both things are in one post, but I just found that this would be the easiest solution for saving some time, and stress, especially right now.  ha ha....

I will be back later tonight with another post, The Digi Bells are having a blog hop, and I can't wait to show you what is being released tonight!!  =)

Thank you for stopping by and reading through all of my craziness!
