Challenge Fun . . .

This is the 6x6 paper I began with for my creation.

For the next two weeks, there's a fabulous challenge going on over at Joan's Gardens ... and Heidi Blankenship is the Guest Designer.  Her inspiration to us this challenge is stamping on designer paper to make your own personalized background paper.You can see what the challenge entails HERE on Heidi's Blog and all the challenge requirements can be found HERE on Joan's Blog.

This was fabulous fun (can't wait to do it again) and here's a list of products used.  Those identified in BOLD were purchased at Joan's Gardens.

Papers - White cardstock for base card, Prima 'Madeline' Collection 6x6 designer paper
Stamps - LaBlanche Bird, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous 'Urban Chic',
Inks - Tim Holtz 'Frayed Burlap' Distress, Memento 'Bamboo Leaves',
Accessories - Prima Vintage Trinket (key),  PKGlitz ultrafine Copper Glitter, Cheery Lynn Designs B117 'Fanciful Flourish',

Why not give this fun technique a try ... then add it to the link HERE ... YOU could be a WINNER!!

Another fun challenge I always participate in is the Crafty Secrets Challenge over on SCS (Splitcoast Stamper).  Today we have Cynthia as a guest hostess and she's asked us to use our Crafty Secrets / Heartwarming Vintage Products along with the color ORANGE for our creations.  The gals are really coming up with some fabulous inspiration and here's what I created using the Crafty Secrets Halloween Images & Journaling Notes Booklet.

 The 'lined background with pumpkin head' is actually the bottom portion of this image sheet.  I've added 'googlie eyes' for FUN and the Trick or Treat ribbon is Offray from either JoAnn's or Michaels.

This challenge is always fun!  If you have any Crafty Secrets products ... why not come join us!!  We'd love to have you!!

Well, guess I'd better get some housework done ... Uuuugh!!  Catch you later!  Have a WONDERFUL DAY!!!
