Name That Fairy, Card , New Release & Sponsorship

Hi, hope everyone had a great weekend.

Kendra and I have been busy little beavers this week, reviewing blogs of the applicants for our design team, reading everyones suggestions of names for our "Name that Fairy contest", finishing our designs for our upcoming release, and crafting with some of our images for Father's Day cards.

So, today's the day to "Name That Fairy"! We compiled the list of names and put numbers on pieces of paper and since neither of us wanted to take our hats off, we put them in the cat tree and drew a number (that really is ridiculous now that I type it, but really, that's how it went down). The winner of "Nissa" is Bailey's Lounge (sorry, couldn't find your name!). We think it's kinda neat that this was the name we drew out of the "tree" since it was recommended twice, must be fate! Congrats to you :) but we'll need your e-mail address to send her your way as we couldn't find one for you, so please get in touch with us at

Kendra and I went to a garage sale at our local scrapbooking store, Scrappin Great Deals this weekend. It was fun collecting new and exciting crafting supplies, can't wait to use them.

Here is a card I made today for Father's day using one of The Cafe's new releases.

"Cooner" is available as of tonight at the Character Cafe. I had drawn this for a gift for my husband a while back and when Kendra saw it, she insisted that it would make a great card, and I must say, I have to agree! I think my dad is going to love it.

Here are the details about the card.
• Brown textured card stock from DCWV
• "Cooner" from the Cafe with brown Martha Stewart ink on the edges
• Brown and sage paper from K & Company
• Sentiment from the Cafe printed on Vellum paper
• Flower and brad from my stash
• "Blooming bouquet" stamp from Fiskars stamped in black Martha Stewart ink

Kendra made a father's day card as well, so head over to her blog if you haven't been already to check it out.

Hey, I almost forgot... we're sponsoring another challenge over at The Sketch and Stash Challenge Blog! The winner will get to pick 3 of our images, so if you've got a few minutes head over there sometime this week and check it out. You never know, maybe you'll be a winner.

Well, I'm off to tackle the ever growing pile of laundry.
