Sensational Sunday Inspirations + Blog Candy!

Hi Stampers!

I don't know about you all but I am super sick of Winter! It is freezing cold and it was snowing today...YUCK! I am so ready for warm weather! It does NOT feel like Spring at all ;(

Last week - Holly had to sub for me so what I did is took all the comments from the last TWO weeks and tallied them up and drew the winner of this week's candy :) So if you left a comment the last 2 will be in the draw twice!

Before I tell you who the winner is I do want to make a little announcement...we are going to try something  new next week and see how it goes. Next Sunday the Sensational Sunday Post will be a blog hop instead of all the projects on one post. The hop will start on this blog at Noon Central Time and you will follow the hop around to all the design team members blogs who are playing along. We will hide the blog candy prize on one of the DT blogs or it may be on this one. You can leave a comment on each of the players blogs for more chances to win :) I think it sounds like fun and something a little different :)

Here is our random winner of last week's BLOG CANDY GIVE-AWAY! According to the is...

Here are your random numbers:

Now on to today's blast of inspiration from our talented Design Team! Here we go....

Wow! How fun and girly is this? I love the hot pink black together with the zebra print and pops of lime green! This would be perfect for teen girls! I know that these colors are my daughters favorites :) Athina did such an amazing job at coloring her image as usual! I also love the sheer ribbon accents and the layout style!
Simply too cute for words!

Paper Smooches 'A Magical Spring'
Paper Smooches 'Birthday Sampler'

HOLY ROSES BATMAN! Wow! Check out all of those gorgeous flowers! Lydia colored this cutie in perfect Spring Colors and she matches that gorgeous bouquet perfectly! I love all the details that Lydia added and that key is so cute!

My Minds Eye - Lost & Found - Market Street Princes

This is so adorable! I wish I could do pleats as well as Ivonne does :) Her coloring is stunning and she did such a beautiful job coloring her image to match her papers and those beautiful butterflies! This just screams Spring and warmer weather! Such a gorgeos job!

Echo Park paper called Love Story

This little scene is so amazing! I have always been a huge fan of Shanna's coloring and this is just too cute!!The grass and sky look amazing! Those flowers are gorgeous too and add the perfect touch! Beautiful job!

This is such a cheery card with the bright, summery colors! This image is so sweet and Marcy colored her perfectly! I love this layout and the accents that Marcy chose! Total sweetness!  

I also had a chance to play in my stamp room today for a little bit. I got some Design Team projects done and then decided to play along in a few challenges for a little fun :)

I have been wanting to make one of these Tea Bag Dispensers for quite awhile. I saw that Tiddly Inks was having an Anything But a Card challenge so I grabbed one of my FAVORITE images... Alice from Stamping Bella and created one. I really love the Curio papers from Basic Grey and because I drink a lot of Green Tea, I wanted my box to kind of match. I chose some papers that kind of reminded me of a tranquil garden since tea is suppose dto be relaxing :) I paper pieced the outfit and the butterfly accent is one that I bought from a lady that makes them on Etsy. I really LOVE how it turned out :)   Here are a few more views...  

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win some blog candy and if you can visit each of the Designers Blogs and read about how they created their amazing projects! Have a great day!
