**PHOTO INSPIRATION** New Challenge With The Craft Garden!!

It's the first of the month and that means another fun challenge at The Craft Garden!!  Our theme this month is Photo Inspiration, we wanna see what you are inspired to create from this photo:


The very first thing I thought was FAIRY!!!  I love fall colors, so I came up with this:


I know it doesn't really show up in the photo, but the heart and the word love are shimmery, as is the fairy.  Her wings have two coats of shimmer to make her look fluttery.  Oh, and the flowers are shimmery too.

**BINGO** New Challenge with Mema's Crafts!!

It's October first and that means it's time for a new challenge at Mema's Crafts!  This month we've got a great BINGO challenge to play with!!  You may play with a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line, or all four corners.



We've got two lovely sponsors in Bugaboo Stamps and Stitchy Bear Stamps!!

With Bugaboo I was dying to work with one of their Halloween silhouette stamps.  I picked Halloween Silhouette Scene and played with the diagonal line from right to left: Digital Stamp, bling and punches.


Of course I always tend towards Twilight inspiration, so I picked Edward and Bella from Stitchy Bear Stamps!  This card was created based on the left-to-right diagonal line: Ribbon, Bling, Dry Embossing.



Be sure to visit the blog and see what the other designers have come up with!  Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!

A Brain of Bats

As I created this card, all I heard in my head was Coldplay's "A Sky Full Of Stars".  I tried singing "a brain full of bats" but it didn't have the same ring to it. Last minute as always, my September tag for Tim Holtz's blog challenge actually came together kind of awesomely!


I'm not gonna mount this one on a card like I sometimes do, I'm too happy with it!!

I'm entering the following challenges:


Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting!  Laters!!

#HEARTS

Happy World Hearts Day!  I actually didn't even know that existed, but I saw it over at 613 Avenue Create and I wanted to participate.  I lost my grandmother to a heart attack and I'm very dedicated now to awareness and prevention.


The red heart is glittery but it doesn't fully show up in the photo.  The flower and heart center are shimmery, too.  I loooove glittery, shimmery cards I just wish they showed up better!!

I also picked that background paper and the color assortment 'cause I didn't want it to look too valentine-y.  Mission accomplished. :)

I'm entering these challenges:

Thanks so much for looking and take care of your heart--you only get one!!!  Make lots of art, it keeps your stress level down.  Laters!!

Here's to Twenty Years!!!!

Alllllllways at the last minute, right??  In honor of the 20th anniversary of the best show on TV EVER, Friends, I wanted to make a coffee-themed card.  I've been dying to use this pop-up die, so here's what I created.

Here's the front....


And THIS is the inside!!!


YEP, I love that die!!

I'm entering this super-special card in some challenges:

Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!!!
