HIMCR #171 Any Holiday

Hiya folks!!
Time is sure flying by--we are already at the end of October!!

So, it's Saturday, and do you know what that means??
Another fun challenge over at HIMCR!!!
This week it is #171--Any Holiday!
This week's sponsor is A Day For Daisies .
Amazing digital images!

Here is what I chose, and created for this week's challenge:
I used my brand new Faber Castell Pastel Pencils, and WOW---
Was I ever impressed with the feel, the performance!!
I then used a blender to soften it up. 
'Peace on Earth' is heat embossed.
Paper are from Doodlebug (surprised?)
Ribbon and gem in the star are from stash.
I like it--to me, it represents the true meaning of why
we celebrate this holiday!

Have a great weekend!
Be safe. Get crafty.

 Happy Saturday!

New challenge happening over on the Hiding In My Craft Room blog!
This weeks HIMCR Challenge #170 is EMBOSSING.

The sponsor this week is

Paper Temptress,
with the prize being
a 25$ gift certificate to the store! Woohoo!

The DT were to use paper from said store, but I did not have any.
So....I used what I had in
And it gives me a chance to make more Christmas cards!
  I used my TH embossing folder, covered the inside with red ink, 
and embossed my cardstock.
Love this effect!
The die cuts are from Basic Grey's 25th & Pine ---I must
say that I am a tad smitten with Basic Grey these days!
Especially this collection from last year!
I edged one of the ovals with AC glitter glue (Zazzles, I think?)
I like this card---and I love the embossing challenge!
Head on over and enter to win!
See you soon!
Be safe; Get crafty.

HIMCR #169--Super Scraps Saturday

It's Saturday, and that means a new challenge over at

The challenge this week is 
Super Scraps.

Use up those scraps--come on!
We all have them--especially those cute ones. ;)

Here is my entry:
 Isn't he a cutie??
He is an image from this week's sponsor, The Paper Shelter.

And I knew what scraps to use him on.

The picture does not do him justice--been having technology problems lately!

So, break out those scraps, and pick up an adorable image, and play along!
Well, that is it for me.
Have a great weekend!
Be safe. Get crafty.

Boo to you...again

Hiya folks!
Sorry for the late post.
Life has been happening, and my laptop is acting up...again!

Over on Hiding In My Craft Room, the challenge for this week was
HIMCR #167--Any Holiday!

Well, that is just perfect!
With Halloween right around the corner, what better reason to get crafty, right?
Of course, I had my sidekick to help me.
Together, we made this card.
We used papers and elements from Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor;
 Carta Bella's All Hallow's Eve, and Graphic 45's Steampunk Spells.
(3 of my absolutely fave Halloween collections!!)
The bats are from October Afternoon Witch Hazel---which is another great collection.

So, that's it for me for now!
Have a great night!
I have to load this up to HIMCR #167 challenge now! :D

Be safe. Get crafty.
