They are not going to be having the challenges and new images in the coming year so there will be no need for a design team. . The challenge was for us to use our favorite image and make it sparkle.
I love this image. It's called "forever friends". Don't you love them. That is how I feel about all of you. I hope for you to have some forever  friends.
 The store for images will remain open. So if you find time go by and check it out. They have a sale going on right now. All images are only a dollar.

Blast from the Past

Wow what a title. This post is about things done back in the 70's. Ok I Know I'm dating my self. Somewhere around 1974 - 1976. I was between 11 & 13. My Step Mom Passed away over 5 years ago and Bless her she kept everything. I was going through some stuff this morning looking for a roll of tape and found the box of things she had kept for me. I decided to go through it and actually takea good look. What I found:

Early proof of card making. I was making my own cards and envelopes even befor it was popular.{lol} I don't think I did too bad back then. I guess it was meant for me to make cards and other paper crafts. I totally wish I could give my step mom a hug and thank her once again for instilling a love of crafting in to my life. She was a crafter if ever there was one. She was the orignal recycler. She bargain hunted and could tell you where to find the best deals on craft stuff. You never knew what she would come up with.  She truly is missed.

Fairy Knolls Challange

Wow can you believe it's Friday already.  This week"s challenge at fun at fairy knoll is "Anything goes" Just please use a Halloween image.
I choose to use the image "Pumpkin + Fairy" This paper is so cute. I relized after making the card I had used a piece a couple weeks ago on another challenge. It came in a 12x12 card stock and I had cut it down to 6x6 size. I colored the image with copics. I layered her with pop dots. The foam ghost is from a container I got at Michaels full of ghost and tomb stones along with some letters. I cut the bats out of a card stock I had and pop dotted them up.  Hope you have enjoyed this project and join us at fairy knoll for this week challenge for a chance to win an image of your choice. Have a great Halloween & besure to go by all the design team blogs to see all the great stuff they have in store for you.

Wow, Can you believe it is already Oct. I had the day off yesterday so my Friend Donna and I spent the day crafting. Partly because we were both off and we knew we would be too busy to do it today. The men being home and all.  LOL So it being card making day and all I thought I would share the things we did.



The first is a couple of cards we made using the "scallop circles #2" from stampin up. I cased the chick and then came up with the santa using the same idea as the chick.

The second two are using the "top note" die from stampin up they have a box in the center for adding candy.

The third is also using the top note die. I don't really like the way the santa turned out. I need to make the eyes bigger.

After a full afternoon of crafting Honey came home and took me to dinner. The best part of that was that after dinner it was a trip to Hobby Lobby. Where I found nestabilities on sale for "$8.99" a set. Yes I said "$8.99". Well I was going to be good and only get two sets but honey said at that price go ahead and get the 4 sets I wanted. Can you say WOW. I got over $100.00 worth for 36.00.  That was a great end to a great day.

Hope everyone enjoy's their card making day and if we get back in time I will be doing more and posting tomorrow. Have a crafty good day.

Feature Friday

Well it's that time again over at character cafe. This week the challeneg is to :

Use the color Orange
Add Ribbon
And two embelishments
     I choose to use the image " Witch Olga" Isn't she cute? I used copics to color her. I made two copies of her and cut out her hat and caldurn and pop dotted them up off the image. I then sponged around the edges and layered  the image on black and orange card stock. I had some Halloween embelishments I got last year after Halloween on sale.{I love to shop after a holiday and get stuff cheaper.}
    Besure and go by the character cafe to check out all the great stuff the new design team has come up with. While there besure and join ion on the challange in order to have a chance at a free image.
    Next Friday is new release day and blog hop. Be sure and come back to join in on the hop and have a chance to win some great images. Have a great day and happy crafting.
