FF#51 at the Shoe!

This weeks challenge at If the Shoe fits...SCRAP IT! is up and running! The challenge this week is a holiday for all holidays, which means, pick a holiday and make something! You can pick any holiday you want! I chose Christmas for the simple reason that I got a box of Close to my Heart new stuff in the mail yesterday and couldn't wait to play with it! I used the new stamp set St. Nick and the Mistletoe paper pack (love that paper, possibly one of my fav packs!) So hurry over to the Shoe and play along ;)
i am also entering this card in a few other challenges:
1. Heart to Heart challenges: leaves and trees
2. 365 cards day 224, super sketchy sunday

that's it! thanks for stopping by and don't forget to visit the Shoe!

PC#40: sketch and/or stitching!

Happy hump day everyone ;) Wednesday means challenge day at the Pixie Cottage! Today's challenge features a guest sketch by Hazel:

AND/OR stitching....which means you can do the sketch, use stitching on your project, or both! For mine, I chose to do both. Here is my DT sample featuring this adorable digi image by Artish
called Autumn Raking.


I'm also entering my card in a few other challenges:
1. Paper Sundaes #39: a change of season
2. Cupcake inspiration #80
3. Charizma Cardz #40, autumn colors
4. Stamp scrap and doodle saturdays: halloween or fall project

That's it for now ;) remember to go to the Pixie Cottage to see the rest of the DT's fab projects for challenge #40! Oh, and thanks for the get well wishes, sadly, I'm not feeling any better, actually thought I was getting better last night until I woke up even worse today :( which is why my post didn't go up first thing this morning, i had to retreat right back to bed after taking kids to school...and i will be headed back there as soon as I'm done here.

Fashionista Friday #50 at the Shoe!


A new challenge went up at the Shoe last Friday, and well...I'm just getting around to posting this now ;) I've been sick as a dog for the past few days, cant' wait to hit my pillow today actually. Anyways...the new challenge at If the Shoe fits...SCRAP IT! is to use distressing on your project! For my card, I decided to use a Pixie Cottage image, Spooky Tree Background by Sandra Hammer and emboss on it so I can play along with the rest of the team over at Pixie Cottage as well ;) ( had to go out of town last weekend for a death in the family, so I was unable to submit for DT). I think I'm rambling now.....the gist of it is this:
1. FF#50 at the Shoe, DISTRESS! ( you have until thursday night at 9pm to get this done!)
2. sketch/embossing at the Pixie Cottage (you have til tuesday night at midnight to get this one done)
there you have it....and now to get my kids ready for bed so i can head taht way myself...i hope this flu/cold goes away soon, it is interupting my crafty time ;)
