**Your FAVORITE Challenge** New Challenge with Hobbycutz!

It's time for a new challenge with Hobbycutz and this fortnight we've got a super fun theme, Your Favorite Challenge!  So think about all those challenges you've been entering, and create a card themed with your favorite.  Mine is (surprise, surprise) BLING!!!  Glitter and rhinestones galore.  I picked the solid butterfly from the Scrapbooking Butterfly Assortment for this card, and painted them before coating them in glitter.  I love how they turned out.  Our lovely sponsor is All Dressed Up!


I've chosen to use the Mirror, Mirror image.  I just love how it has a fairytale element to it.


I want to enter a few challenges:

**Anything Goes** New Challenge with Crafting From the Heart!

It's time for another fun challenge at Crafting From the Heart, and as always, it's Anything Goes!!  I love ATG challenges cause you can create whatever your heart desires.  Sometimes I sit down at my craft table with no plan, grab random supplies and just see what happens.  That's what happened with this weeks' card.  Our lovely sponsor is Dilly Beans, and I chose #366-Quotes to make this card. I've always loved Dr. Seuss.


It's cute right?  But then....


Ta-Dah!  It's an easel card!  I'm so obssesed right now with easel cards.

Shake It Out, Shake It Out

It's one of those crazed weeks the past few days and I'm not sure why, but I can't seem to get much of anything done.

This is a birthday card I made for my brother's girlfriend.  She looooooves cupcakes.  It's so fun to make a custom card, creating your own pattern as you go along.


The pattern was created by copying various coloring pages.  Each layer is separate and was glued together.


You can really see all the sparkly and spangly goodies in this one.


And here's the homemade easel I created.  This was fun but a challenge.  I'll have to try and make another one before I forget how.  LOL.

Dream With Your Heart

That's a quote I think often, and a stamp I don't use often enough.  The Unity Be Inspired challenge is almost over but I've gotten my card done at the last minute!  This is the sketch/inspiration photo:

Happy Hump Day!  It's time for another challenge at Creative Moments, and our theme is Anything Goes with the option of using Animals!  Our lovely sponsor is StampArt Design by Kathryne.  I've chosen to use Owl-Ways Party for this card.


The flowers were a last-minute add, but I really like them.

Tell of The Stars

I've never played with one of Word Art Wednesday's quotes before, but this one really got my creative mind going.  I'm always so to the last minute with these things, but at least I got it done!  I'm very happy to have finished this card and I think I will challenge myself to use their inspirational, Biblical quotes more often.  This week's quote was:


Isn't that pretty?  So I made this:


You'll be seeing this background stamp a lot lately, it's new and one I've coveted for a long time now!

Flooded With Ideas

Rain rain, go away....after an unusually dry summer here, we got about six inches of rain in two hours today.  And it pretty much rained all. Day.  Long.  With freeways underwater and cars stranded everywhere, it was kinda freaky outside but lucky for me I was indoors, crafting away.  I had a lot of stuff in my head to make today, and one of those things was my (always at the last minute) Christmas card for Tis The Season Stamping's Challenge.  It's a sketch challenge this time around, and it's oh-so-cute and was fun to work with.


Here's what I made:


Just two challenges today:
