I love Thursdays, because it means challenge time again over at CRAFT US CRAZY! It is exciting, challenge after challenge, to see all of the fantastic entry projects. Each and every one of them are so incredible. I can't wait to see the entries for this challenge. Speaking of which, this week's challenge theme is Mother's Day or flowers. Both of which go hand in hand in my opinion.

We have three AWESOME sponsors for this challenge: the CUTTING CAFE is our monthly sponsor until the end of May and both MELJIN'S DESIGNS and YOUR NEXT STAMP are sponsors for challenge #7. Check out their info and all of the challenge details over at the CRAFT US CRAZY blog.

My project for this challenge is a card using the "sunflower buggies" image from MELJIN'S DESIGNS. I chose to create more of a plain card with no patterned paper or embellishments because I think this image is so cute it can stand on it's own!!

Don't forget to join us over at CRAFT US CRAZY this week to show off your wonderful creation!!

I have another adorable image from STAMPFAIRY, who is this month's sponsor over at CRAFT US CRAZY. Don't you just love this sweet little image? Meet Lenny and he can be purchased along with several other totally adorable images over at STAMPFAIRY.

What do you think of this fold? I found this fold idea on one of my favorite blogs to follow, STAMPOWL'S STUDIO. Her card using this fold is just gorgeous and better yet she provides the TEMPLATE.

My card is kind of simple and plain: just a few pattern pieces of paper, the image and a few skittles.

Here is the card all folded up.......

.......and here it is unfolded. ***PROJECT INGREDIENTS***

My post today is to showcase an image from our current monthly sponsor over at CRAFT US CRAZY. Our sponsor for this month is STAMPFAIRY. I had the honor of getting to work with the "Patsy, April Showers" digi image from STAMPFAIRY. Just how cute is she? The inside of the card reads, "rainy day friend". I can see a get well card made with her as well, with a "feeling under the weather?" sentiment. Here's a little bit of information on STAMPFAIRY: Stamp Fairy officially launched in 2010.
