Kenny K challenge...swirls & pearls

I think I barely squeeked this one in this week! I needed a "stress reliever" night so I decided to do this challenge and finish up some other projects I had on the go! Much needed!! Ahhhhhhh

So this is my card I am entering into the Kenny K Krafty Girlz challenge this week, which is swirls and pearls! I ADORE my D'vine swirls CB folder so of course I had to use it, and my swirl punch from EK Success. I used DA BOMB image - isn't she sassy?? Anyway, pretty simple layout, attitude, swirls and pearls!!!

Have a GREAT weekend!

Simon Says....BLOG HOP TIME!!!!

For the first time ever we are joining forces with our challenge blogs;
Simon Says Stamp and Show & the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to bring you a SUPER hop to celebrate the approaching fall and winter holidays and the crafting fun you can have throughout!
To help celebrate we will be giving a $100 SHOPPING SPREE to the winner of this hop!

The theme for both challenges this week will be HOLIDAY FUN. Your entry can be Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas themed. You can make anything you like … a card, an ATC, a Scrapbook layout … the possibilities are endless!

At each Design Team member’s blog you will find a clue, you need to collect all the clues to form a code. The complete code will be your password to enter the Grand Prize draw. At each blog you will need to leave a comment and on the last blog you must leave a direct link to the project you have made for this challenge.

The clue for my blog is the letter E

The Blog hop will start at 10am Ohio time ( 3pm UK time 4pm CET) on September 8th, 2010 at the Simon Says Stamp and Show Blog and will finish on September 15th, 2010 at 10am Ohio time ( 3pm UK time 4pm CET) on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.

During the hop you will visit all of the Design Team member’s blogs and each blog will tell you where to go next for the following clue! If you lose your way at any time a full list of all the participating blogs with links will be available on Simon Says Stamp and Show … just remember you need to keep the clues in the correct order. Once you have made your project and linked it to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog you need to comment your link number together with the correct code in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog under the comments section of that week in order to be entered into the draw.

Added bonus! You will have a chance to win goodies from each HOP! Each DT member will be giving away an ingredient to make their creation, so don’t forget to comment throughout your hop!

Hi everyone! This was supposed to be published Monday but on Sunday, my lap top decided it didn't want to work. My photos were stuck on the computer in edit mode, so I had no way of getting them off! Tim had taken the camera so I couldn't even retake the picture! UGH!!! Anyway, this is for the Squigglefly challenge this week which is a tough is to make a FALL card using ROLLED FLOWERS. This was totally out of my "comfort zone" but I persevered and made ONE! LOL I added ROCK CANDY distress stickles to make it look "dewy" (is that even a word?? LOL)

Head over to the Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT made - their flowers are WAY nicer than mine is!!!! LOL I hope you will join us this week!!!

Designed2Delight challenge.....

This weeks challenge at Designed2Delight is to use this great OAK WREATH image. As soon as I saw it I knew what I wanted to do with it! I printed out 2 copies, coloured them both, then cut out individual leaves to pop them out to make it look "real". The acorns are popped out too!!! The ribbon is recycled from a chocolate box but it fits perfectly with the colour scheme of my leaves....which, qualifies me 100% for the Double Delight challenge which is Autumn Colours!!! Weeee hooooo!!!!! The sentiment is from Magnolia.

Here is a side can kinda see the leaves popped out:

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great night!!!

Corrosive Challenge Blog

This weeks challenge over at The Corrosive Challenge Blog is to use Old Olive & Real Red - both are SU! colours but Old Olive is like an "olivey" green, and Real Red is a bright red! Soooo, use those 2 colours!!! I figured most would do a Christmas card, so I decided to do a Halloween card - I was inspired by this funky glittery web DP I got from a blog candy prize a few years ago!! The bear & bat are from C.C. Designs and the ribbon is from Dollarama!

I hope you will join us this week! There are some great prizes this month!!!!
