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.
Welcome to another new challenge day at AiF. This week we are on our new site! Very exciting. Our challenges have changed a bit, we are now offering a freebie to work with and going to a 2 week challenge period. The design team is smaller this term as we work out the kinks on the new site and yet the creativity is huge. Make sure you check out the DT inspiration this week.
Here is my card for this week’s challenge of Back to School/Hooray for Teacher
I really wanted to keep this card simple and use primary colors. I did a little paper piecing (something I’ve not done in awhile) with some scraps (**sigh** yes I am still using scraps) and colored the image Ella Teacher with my Copics. A little chalking for the sentiment which I printed out on the computer and for embellishments just a bit of ribbon, stickles and bling, all of which are from my stash. I will admit, the only new thing I used on this card besides the image, was the new border punch I picked up. I realized I had NOTHING in terms of a scallop punch so I thought I better have one!

You should have arrived here from Kim’s blog. If you hopped here by chance, please head over to Lollipop Crafts and begin your journey there.
Using Meljen’s Bunbun image (this is so adorable) I created this cute little birthday card. One can never have enough birthday cards in my opinion.
The DP is from Bazill (Grandma’s Feather Bed). The image is colored with copics with just a hint of paper piecing with the party hat and cupcake. I also added just a bit of stickles as well. The ribbon is from my stash and I cut the balloons out using my Celebrations cartridge and then ran them through the cuttlebug with the polkadots folder. Since my FB win with Whisker Graphics, I’ve been using a lot of their baker’s twine which I incorporated here for the balloon strings. The sentiment is a stamp set from Hot Off the Press. I hope you like it!

So I used Gloria’s sketch from CdnScrapSwapChat to do the Fussy and Fancy Challenge which is GREEN. I hope you like it. Nothing fancy… I used some Savvy n Sassy ribbon, a Daisy Bucket stamp that I just bought, bazzill cardstock and the paper is from Chatterbox (Botanica).
