Saturday Sneak Peek -- Feeling Frosty Week Three

Well howdy ho to my regular Saturday visitors and anyone else who might have dropped in today.  It is time for this week's sneak peek of the new release coming out on Thursday.  Let's have a look see shall we...

I'm certain there will be lots of correct guesses on this one.  If you have an idea of what you think the OVERALL image may be, no matter how outrageous the guess, please offer it up by Wednesday at 12:00 pm EST (noon) in a comment on this post to be eligible to win a possible goody.  I have a feeling my free time off from creating goodies is over.

Don't Forget...
There is still an opportunity to win a copy of Naomi's latest release, 'Twigs'.  Click HERE and scroll down to find out how.
Th--th--th-th--that's all folks! (Yup, too many Porky Pig cartoons as a child).  Have a wonderful few days everyone and I will see you all on Thursday!

When Judith applied, she sent me a copy of a card she created using Roudie.  It turned out just wonderful and I thought you might all like to see a taste of the flavour that Judith will bringing to the team.

Check out Roudie as he jingles all the way...
You will soon see that Judith has a very unique style.  She has done a great job paper piecing Roudie.  I could easily imagine a spotted reindeer couldn't you?  Doesn't he look so cute?   

If you missed Roudie when he was up as a freebie you can now find him snuggled down in the store with the rest of the Christmas images.  To find him, just click on the watermark and scroll down through the holiday section until you see him.
So, please join me in welcoming Judith to this little team of ours.  It is fantastic to have her on board.  Please pop by Judith's blog if you have the chance and check out all her wonderful work.  Hopefully we will continue to grow and be able to bring you even more great projects featuring the amazing line of Creative Bug Digital images.  Remember, the DT call is still currently open.  If you believe that you, or someone you know, would be a great fit over here, please click HERE to find out all you need to know in order to apply.

Bit By the Bug Tuesday -- Timmy the Snowman Builder

Hello and welcome to week two of our Feeling Frosty collection. It is time for the first freebie of 2014!   Check it out...
Timmy loves to play in the snow and he fashions himself quite an expert in the building of snow people.  Therefore he has decided to become a Snowman Builder when he grows up.  Of course it will only be seasonal work...unless Timmy decides to move to the Arctic.  We'll just have to wait and see...

Click HERE to get "Timmy the Snowman Builder".  Available from January 14th until January 28th. After that it will be replaced with another freebie.

Let us check and see what a couple of our DT came up with to showcase Timmy the Snowman Builder...
What a gorgeous creation.  I love Timmy in that green and orange snowsuit.  The sparkle on the snowman is fabulous as well.  The layout of this card is amazing too and check out those snowflakes.  Once again Vicky comes through with a fantastic card.  You can check out the details of this project over on Vicky's blog Crafting Vicky.

Next up is...

Another great card celebrating the wonder of winter.  Timmy is definitely at home with his snowman building abilities!  Monica has chosen some really interesting papers to create this card.  I really like the background for her sentiment.  Very neat.  You can check out all the details of Monica's card by visiting her blog, TaylorMade 4U.

Sneak peek guesses...
Thanks to all of you who offered up guesses.   While all the guesses were fantastic, I managed to stump everyone for a change.  As you can see, the area that I highlighted was actually part of the earmuff and the scarf.  One person came close seeing a scarf but of course that wasn't quite enough to get a general idea of the image.  So, for this week at least, I can take a teeny tiny break from creating any goodies. 

Don't Forget...
There is still an opportunity to win a copy of Naomi's latest release, 'Twigs'.  Click HERE and scroll down to find out how.

Before you head on your way, here is the latest feeling frosty themed joke...
 Q: What do you get from sitting on the snow too long?
  A: Polaroids!
