Pile It On! Sunday and a chance to help

The weeks are just zooming on by! We have another Pile It On! Sunday challenge for you: Enough With the Winter Colors! Take the challenge to mean whatever you like, whether it be warm reds and browns or spring yellows and greens and pop on over to the blog and get your entries in!

And if you haven't already seen this image floating around, then I'm glad that I'm able to spread the word to you. Whimsy Stamps along with one of our artists, Crissy Armstrong, is offering the Wings of Hope digital image that I've used on my card for $4 with all the proceeds (minus Paypal fees) being donated to the Red Cross help the victims of Haiti. Why not take this opportunity to help if you haven't already? If you have already given to a charity, wouldn't you like to own this beautiful image to spread the word of Hope? I encourage everyone to donate and if you do, head over to Crissy's blog to enter her blog candy for a chance to win some wonderful things. Help today, it may mean more than you know.

Wings of Hope - purchase it here and Help Haiti

This is adorable however it does not meet the requirement for the Just Us Girls challenge this week. Although it is our wildcard week that means the Just Us Girls Design Team picks a challenge of our choice for our participants - this week it was to make a pennant banner. Thanks for considering us as you try to complete a large number of challenges.

Ann, this image and the cause it represents is fabulous and your rendition even more beautiful. My jaw dropped when I saw how lovely it is. I really like the color pallet you selected. It definitely gets us away from the winter doldrums!! Great piece of work!!

This is gorgeous! Great take on the challenge this week! So warm and un-wintry :) You did a beautiful job of coloring the carousel horse. And those flowers are such a lovely touch.
