Happy Tuesday everyone! It was Thanksgiving over here in Canada on Monday so it was a busy weekend for my family as I had 2 dinners to attend as well as my youngest brother’s wedding on Saturday. This whole weekend seems like a big party! LOL
For many of us, autumn is well and truly here. So, we have a great challenge for you at Use it Tuesday this week. We are falling into fall and would love to see your Fall Creations! It can be anything that fall inspires you with, the rich colors, the celebrations, the activities….all we ask is that you use your hoarded supplies to create with and let us know what they are when you post.
Here is my card for you today.
I’m sure you recognize the paper from another card I did. This MME paper is great for fall projects, lots of rich colors. I used some more of the American Crafts pumpkin ribbon. The leaves were cut out using my little leaf punches and then the pumpkins and gate were from a die cut swap I did ages ago. The sentiment is from a Stampin up set that has a matching punch. I’ve used the punch before but not the stamp set so really loving paring the two together.
I just love the autumn feel of this card!
Please stop by the blog to see the rest of the inspiration the girls have for you this week and to enter our challenge! We can’t wait to see what you create!

Happy Friday the 13th everyone. It’s a new challenge day over at Poodles Parlour today. It’s all about circles! Our sponsor this week is Whoopsi Daisy Digis.
I am really loving this week’s card for you. Using one of our sponsor digis and a sketch from my SCT Cardmaps book I created this card..
The DP is from Basic Grey and is just a few pieces I had left over from another project. The grey ruched ribbon and cardstock are from my stash, as is the bling. The orange ribbon is from CTMH. I colored using my copics and then cut out the image with my Spellbinders for my circles. I hope you enjoy this card and be sure to stop by the blog and check out the rest of the DT creations this week and don’t forget to enter!
Also of note, we have had a couple of our DT step down so we do have some openings! Just email Jacqui at email@example.com with a link to your blog and let her know you are interested!

hey there everyone! happy Friday! It’s a new challenge at the Poodles Parlour for you this week. We are being sponsored by Karen’s Doodles! We have a fun Halloween theme for you this week, so make sure you stop by the blog to see the great DT inspiration and to play in the challenge!
Here is mine this week!
We used Karen’s image (isn’t this cute) and the DP was sent in a swap. I did a little border punching and after I cut out the focal image with my spellbinders I popped it with some spritz smooch and pop dots! I colored with my copics, added a bit of ribbon, some spooky spiders and a few brads for just a pop of color. I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along!
happy Thursday all! I know I haven’t posted for a bit. I’ve been busy trying to get stuff made for my craft fairs this year–I am doing 4 all in the month of November. So I have been busy but I have some projects to share with you later
Today is the Sponsor Spotlight over on Lollipop Crafts! This week we are sponsored by Di’s Digi Downloads
Our challenge this week is to use brads and/or eyelets on your project. Pretty simple so everyone can enter and we have a great prize. Everything you need to know can be found on the blog here.
Here’s what I have for you this week:
the DP is from a paper surprise pack I got from Hot Off The Press eons ago and have had forever. I chalked the image after copic coloring and then did a little paper piercing on the scalloped circle. It’s a little hard to see in the picture but the butterfly and the centers of the flowers all have stickles on them. A little of the baker’s twine from Whisker Graphics and a little charm and bling to finish it off. I hope you enjoy.
Robyn’s Fetish…….this week at Lollipop Crafts Robyn is offering one lucky winner 5 digital images or 4 digital images and one digital paper set of your choice. What a great prize! It’s the sponsor spotlight today on the blog so you can find out all about Robyn and her great images as well as see some new inspiration pieces from the Design Team.
Here is the one that I created using a sketch that Gloria had put up back in April for the CanadianScrapSwapChat monthly card challenge. This month we had to pick a previous sketch and use it for a new piece.
All the paper are just scraps from my stash (I can’t believe that I have so many, even after I did a scrap swap!) The ribbon is from my stash. I used one of my MS border punches. The stitching is fake using some old rub-ons that I found that I have had FOREVER! I colored Robyn’s image using my Copics. The THANKYOU is an old rub on as well. This is just a really simple card. It’s hard to tell from the picture but the orange border isn’t glued down all the way so that it kinda sticks up a bit for a bit of dimension.
Enjoy and you still have time to enter this week’s recipe challenge at LC! You can find out more here.

Oh I love her stuff. I just used some orange cardstock I had and stamped it with the stars of my Stampin Up basic backgrounds stamp. The image was colored with copics and then chalked. It was then put on a border cut from my spell binders and the die cut stars were from a swap I did on Club CK. The stamped sentiment is from my Stampendous sentiments set.

Oh man! I am so embarrased! I missed my first posting as a new Lollipop girl! I do apologize to you all! So the theme this week is Anything but a Card…a bit out of the box for me as I always make cards, or at least tags. The new Design Team is making their debut this week! Our sponsor this week is Meljen Designs…I’m sure you have seen her images everywhere! She even has a fabulous freebie section here
I love here stuff and was so excited to be using them for this challenge. Make sure you stop by the Lollipop Blog to check out all the fabulous DT creations as well as to link up your project to win some great images from Meljen!
So I decided to do something even different and went with this bookmark. I actually made it for my mom as part of a pay it forward swap on Facebook….it’s what she wanted..LOL I just love this grump image and I know I’m going to be doing a lot more with it!
Not a lot going on here. I embossed the bookmark with the clockworks folder and used one of my border punches. The DP down the centre was just from my stash and I used a border punch for that as well. I cut the image out with my nesties, colored it with copics and added some chalk. I also added a bunch of stickles to make him pop some more. The little READ book is from my cricut cartridge and the flower from my stash. A little fibre to top it off!
Have a great day everyone, and make sure you stop by the Lollipop Crafts blog on Thursday for the sponsor spotlight, where I have a card that I created using this guy again!
This bookmark is in the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion: Anything Goes
Karber: Inspired by a book (I hope this counts as it was inspired by all books!)
Corrosive Challenge: Orange, Red & Yellow (I’ve got just a bit of red in my fibre there)
