So, What is YOUR Favorite in the Mini?

That's the theme of this week's challenge at SUO Challenges! Create something using your favorite stamp set or item from the new Occasions Mini. Well, as much as I love nearly EVERYTHING in that catalog (except the gnomes....I just don't get the appeal), I was head-over-heels ecstatic when I saw the Framelits and Edgelits. I've been longing for thin metal dies, made by our very own company, for like, EVAH!

And, apparently, so has much of the rest of our Design Team, because most of us used them, one way or another, in our cards this week, tee-hee! Hey, we know a good thing when we see it.  I was really tempted to use the Bordering on Romance stamp set, too.....so glad I didn't, now that I see what my peeps designed! Long-time followers know that I have to gear up for all the February birthdays coming up, so I went with Crazy for Cupcakes instead.

Thanks for stopping by, and I can't wait to see what YOU choose as a fave from the mini. Maybe one of you can convince me that gnomes are awesome.

  1. I'm glad you used the cupcakes too! They're one of my favorites. Awesome card!

  2. It's a lovely card.I love the cupcake image.Am glad I wandered onto your blog to see it!

  3. I blame all of you. I ordered the Labels and the stamp set. I can't even use them but I couldn't resist the siren call! :-)

  4. The cupcake image is perfect on the label framelit! (Quietly agrees with the gnome comment) lol
