Better late then never

   I know I'm way behind on posting this week. We got back late last night from the beach with family. What a wonderful time we had visiting and sharing all the wonderful blessings and some heart aches of the last year. Then I was back to work early this morning. So there it is my excuse for being late with this week's challenge.
   There won't be a blog hop this month. Angela is taking a much needed rest from new images. But we will be having weekly challenges still. Starting off this week with a  ANYTHING GOES challenge.
  I choose to use the image "MIKI MUMMY" I printed him out twice. Popped up the tumb stone and then popped up miki again. The moon and bats are from my stach which I picked up on sale last year after Halloween. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the side ribbon and placed confetti bats on top.    Be sure and go by to check out all the great cards and projects the design team have come up with. While there join us for the challenge . Who knows maybe you could be the winner of some great images. 
  Alswo don't for get to pick up the freebie this week. It is a cute snowman. I wasn't able to get around to using it this week but I will in the  future. Hope you have enjoyed this post and I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up with. Have a great week end and happy crafting.

Blog Hop Time Again

It's that time again for New Releases & Blog Hop at Sew Many Challenges. There is so much to See I don't know where to start. First off if you came here from  Mari then your on the right track. If not you will want to go and start at the SMC Challenge Blog . There is a little game going on you will want to collect all the differnt phrases at each stop of the hop. Don't miss any it will give you a sneak peek about next week.
  On to my project I had the pleasure of using "Miki baking with butter & eggs"

   Along  with Miki I asked Angela for Recipie cards. She came up with some really cute ones. Not only are they blank in the corner, she made a set with each one of the Miki images in the corner. I had printed all the images out USING THE contact feature. That makes the image small enough for the square. I colored all the images with copics. I made four of each card to place in the pocket. I also sponged around the corners of each image to make them stand out. The background paper is from my stach. I also had the buttons for the front of the card. I printed MIKI out four times. I use differnt pieces from each one in order to pop up differnt areas to differnt heights.
  Don't forget to leave a comment in order to win the image I used. The winner will be choosen from all the comments left during the hop. For a chance at all the images be sure and leave comments on each and every stop. Don't forget to look for that special word or two to make a statement about something special coming up.  Your next stop on the hop is at  Juelmarie. She has some great stuff for you to see. So have fun and don't forget that comment.

Also while out and about don't forget this week's freebie. It is only around for a short time.
