Cloe's Birthday!!!!


The party girl! Dressed in her build a bear couture and gorgeous ribbon accessory. Rowsers!

Guest #1
"FOXY" Roxy Smyrski

Guest #2
"CHEESY" Charlie Papineau

Guest #3
"BOOMBOOM" Belle Papineau

Mom had to hang around cause there was a lot of heavy panting going on and Cloe and "CHEESY" were all over each other!

And of course the Fairy Princess begged mom for guest baggies at the last minute and mom had to run to the store to get treats and whip up in 15MINS!!! (hence the off center image and super slack accessorizing) some fabulous guest treat bags. Tails were wagging and fun was had by all! A New Years Birthday for Cloe (her actual birthday)!
YEAH!

Hope this gave you a good laugh!
HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE!!!!!!
Lemme know if anyone wants this digi!!!!!

BIG HUGS FROM:

Good Day!

I just wanted to share a card that Lori made with one of my freebies you can find on the blog under the freebie category. The word is that my web girl will be home from holidays tomorrow and she is pretty much finished, no word on the cart issue yet but I am thinking we have to be really close now. The "Fairy" designers will be getting their images soon and I will be announcing the challenge blog soon I hope too!

Have a great day all!

Guest designer for January!

As promised I have picked a guest designer for the month of January. I would also like to mention that if for any reason one of the DT members needs to step down, I would be happy to have my guest designer take her place if she is willing.

My Guest designer for the month of January is Margreet! I am so happy to have her she is so very talented! Run over to her blog and give her some love!

Once again, I want to say thanks so much to everyone for your continued support! I feel so very fortunate and LOVED!

I will be sending out the blinkies for the DT soon and of course special ones for the Honorary Fairies and my Guest Fairy designer.

Some info

As you may see I have added the DT's blogs to the sidebar and I have an Honorary Fairies category. These gals are very special to me. Corry is my best friend and stamping buddy.She has been supporting me since I started this process long ago.
Lori is my designer in shining armor, this girls talent blows me away. She is responsible for more of the Prairie Fairy cards posted on the blog than I am, and she is another stamping buddy. She refuses to start a blog no matter how much I harass her to, so I have listed her PCP and SCS links under her name on the honorary fairy list.
And Kelly is yet another stamping buddy and good friend who actually introduced me to blogging in the first place, thanks Kelly! These Honorary Prairie Fairies will or already do have all the images they want!

Thanks girls!

And here is the full view of one of Lori's cards!

YEAHOOOOOOO!

This candy is now closed! Thanks for playing!

Well gang, the day is finally here and I am celebrating with a little candy and a DIGI FREEBIE! Why, you ask, am I celebrating? My secret is to be revealed NOW!

I have been working hard for many months, suffered a few setbacks and disappointments along the way but I persevered. My brand new company Prairie Fairy Digital Stamps is soon going to be launched. It is in fact being loaded onto the website over the next week or two and I am so excited I could burst! Stay tuned because the posts are going to be rolling.

How do you enter my candy you ask?
1. Well I would love you all to pieces, if you are not already a follower, to become one.
2. I need help to spread the word! Please post my candy on your blog with a link back to the Prairie Fairy blog. (If you don't know how to do this, just ask me in your comment for help. I have been there myself!)
3. Of course, leave me a comment, cause they just tickle my heart fancy!
4. Don't have a blog, don't worry, a comment will do and tell your stampy friends about me by email!

I would also like to thank all of my followers who have been here with me all along. My deepest apologies for not visiting all of you as often as I should have, like I said I have been very busy.

Following this post will be the freebie digi image. I have actually created a Christmas project for you to do with it and haven't finished it yet. Once I have finished the project I will post the freebie digi and picture of the project.

OHHHH are you excited yet?

I am also posting some SNEEK PEEKS of cards made with my images which my wonderful friends Corry and Lori have created for me. Thanks guys! But wait........ I am also having DT TRYOUTS! Please stay tuned for a post regarding how to try out.

YIPPPPPEEEEEEEEE I can hardly stand it I am sooooooo excited and scared and excited and scared. I hope you like my images!

Thanks everyone. This post will remain at the top till the website is LIVE and I will make the draw for the candy then. BTW the candy will include: 5 FREE DIGI DOWNLOADS of your choice from Prairie Fairy Designs.

Thanks all,
Roberta

The Design Team!

First of all, let me say thank so much to everyone for entering! WOW! It was so much fun to visit all of your sites. It was a tough decision and I hate to disappoint anyone but I can't choose everyone. If you didn't get chosen this round please come back and try again for the next round!

I am going to tell you how I chose and that way maybe you may be able to increase your odds of making it next round or getting on another DT. I find that nobody really talks about the how!

Of course I am looking for someone who actually colors as my images are meant to be colored this was important. If you didn't have many or any colored projects you were unfortunately eliminated right away.

When I went to your blog, if it really caught my eye, it was easy to navigate and had alot of beautiful cards and projects to see, you made it to the next round.

Then it got hard. I actually made a rubric and used this to judge the criteria. You got points for:

1. Talent. Skill with coloring, design, etc.
2. Blog layout. I find it hard when I visit a blog and I can't figure out how to find stuff.
3. Followers. Yes, I feel shallow saying it but unfortunately I want a DT to get my images out there for people to see and if you don't have a lot of followers that is hard to do. Fear not though, cause if you excelled at other aspects you were still in there!
4. Comments. Do you get a lot of comments, you may have hundreds of followers but if you only get a couple comments on each card then they may not actually be "following" you.
5. Networking. Once again I would love to get my stuff out there so even if you aren't a superstar coloring queen you had still had a chance if you are a social butterfly and love to get out there in virtual land!

I hope this helps those who didn't make it so you know that I may have loved ya and your work but it was a toss up and really in the end sometimes it came down to 1 or two points and there was a tie. If you had something a little special on your site like, prairie fairy in your blog list or you made a project with my feebies and posted them on your blog well you got brownie points!!!! No matter what, your were all fabulous and I appreciate every one of ya!
Take heart however as I am going to start a challenge blog and I am going to have some guest designer spots too, so stay tuned.

Thanks once again and now here is the TEAM!!!!

I will be adding the DT links to the blog shortly. I will also be emailing your DT blinkies for your blogs, I need rest however cause my head cold has gone down to my chest and I am a MESS!
Congrats ladies!

DT announcement

Good afternoon everyone! As much as I HATE to do this, I am going to postpone the DT announcement for A DAY. I am having company this evening and didn't get as much done today as I had hoped would get done and I don't want to rush the selection process. I still have about 20 sites to visit and then finals. I sure hope nobody is too disappointed to wait another day. I am gonna slow down and enjoy the season and my friends. I will have an update tomorrow! Thanks for your patience and here's a little peek at a card my friend Lori created with one of my images that will be available on the site when I open, soon I hope!

2. All DT members must have a blog and have the ability to post quality pictures of their projects on their blog. (No fuzzy pictures please).

2. I always have tons of crafting goodies and papers hanging around so if you are really good to the fairy chances are the fairy will be REALLY GOOD to you. You just never know what might show up in your mail box.

The first DT term will be for three months. I just might host a monthly DT spot so please don't feel discouraged if you don't make it the first round. You don't have to create anything specific just add your link to Mr. Linky here and I will head over to your blog and check you out!

Please post this blinky in your sidebar with a link back to the DT call here on Prairie Fairy. I would just love ya to pieces if you did! Thanks so much!

Good and Bad


The good news is that it looks like I am getting closer to launching. They are still having a little trouble with the cart but everything else is falling into place. I snuck a peek and it is looking good. OHHHHH I can hardly stand it. I am so excited I am giving you the full view of one of the sneek peeks. It was created by a good friend of mine who has so graciously spent the last couple months creating cards for me. Thanks LORI!

The bad news is........I am sick again!!!!! Big surprise right? Hummm, stressed out, working non-stop, running around all day in malls and stores exposed to thousands of people, not to mention all my clients. I swear by the time I hit 40 my antibody arsenal will be full and I will barely get sick right? Oh yeah, they mutate, little buggers! On that note, I am going back to bed and sinus rinsing and doing echinacea and hopefully I will get the best of it before it gets the best of me. I will continue to keep you all updated on the site. Thanks for staying tuned!

WHEW!

So I spent the entire day Christmas shopping yesterday...ahhhhh... and I think I came home with a cold that I am desperately trying to ditch before it grabs hold. I am pretty much done though! YEAH! I think the sneek peeks are coming to an end soon and I am desparately hoping that everything will fall into place on christmas eve. The DT call ends then and maybe just maybe I will open up shop by Christmas day! What a day to open huh? Maybe everyone will get cardmaking goodies for christmas and will have nowhere to go cause their family is too far...and Santa will leave them a little stash in the tree and...... laughing all the way!!! HA HA HA! I have been checking out more sites on the list and I am sure that is what I will be doing for a few days. I will post the announcement date on the day of the dt call close.

Hope you all have a great day!
