It's *Wink *Wink Ink Time . . .

It's been awhile since I've shared any of my *Wink *Wink Ink creations with you so today I have TWO to share!

First is a simple creation that came together in my head long before I got around to putting it on paper.  The background paper is from a Thomas Kinkade 8x8 Christmas paper pack that I purchased from Cornish Heritage Farms a few years back.  This "Deer Friend" digi image from the *Wink *Wink Ink store was perfect with this designer paper.  Add a little touch of glitter & a sentiment and ... card complete!

My second card uses one of Melanie's newest images called "Woolley Bear".    Are you familiar with this little critter?  

Growing up in Western Pennsylvania and in the country, we saw these little guys every late summer/early fall!  As a young girl I remember my father telling me & my sisters that the size of the stripe on the Woolley Bear tells us if we will have a short or a long winter.  "The wider the stripe ... the longer the winter".

I must admit, Melanie (*Wink *Wink Ink artist) is the first digi artist I've seen online to share this little guys with us!  Like I said earlier, you usually see these guys between fall & winter ... hence my card design. This set also comes with a variety of sentiments ... go check it out!

That's it for my card sharing but I'd also like to remind you of a few things going on at *Wink *Wink Ink!  Did you see we are having a DESIGN TEAM CALL??  That's right, we are looking for FOUR new members to join the team for a SIX month term.  All the details can be FOUND HERE.    You still have time to apply ... deadline is September 24th.

AND, we have a MONTHLY CHALLENGE where TWO participants win a $10 gift certificate to use towards ANYTHING in the *Wink *Wink Ink Store?  Our challenges are held on our *Wink *Wink Ink Group over on CDAC (Crafters Digital Art Center).  Melanie has freebies offered in the discussion section so you have no excuse for not joining in the fun!!  LOL!!

Thanks for letting me share with you today!

Great cards, Darlene! Thanks for the fuzzy memories...I forgot all about those guys! Growing up in Ohio, we used to find them all the time!

Hope your day is wonderful, my friend!

Two fabbie cards, and I love the woolly bear story. Can't say I knew about them before. Thanks for the insight.
