Challenge #561 - Happy Days

Welcome to Wednesday and our first challenge of August. Time is just flying by and we do hope that you are all keeping safe and well. Some people are finding lockdown a bit more difficult than others and now is the perfect time to share some smiles. This week's challenge, Happy Days, is all about making somebody smile with your creation - whether it's a card with humour or a handmade gift to spread joy. 

I decided to go with a bit of humour for my card and used some My Favorite Things products. Hopefully, the recipient - whoever they turn out to be - enjoys the card and gets a smile without hiding all their cupcakes from me.

Please look through the link list below to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then make something to make somebody smile!

Challenge #560 - Give Us Your Background!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I hope this finds you all well and raring to join in our challenge this week.  We would like for you to GIVE US YOUR BACKGROUND.  I'm not talking genealogy here, I'm talking alcohol inks, distress oxide ink, paper piecing, smooshing stenciling, gelli pad, collage...there are so many ways to make your own background paper for your creation.

Here's mine -

The background was one that was in my stash.  I think the pink/red is probably distress oxide ink smooshed on to water color paper.  It drives me crazy after you foil something and have all that lovely color left, so I added some transfer gel and some gold leftover foil and this is what I got.

A little bit more background here (not the kind we are asking for in the challenge)...I want to dedicate this card to the Girlfriends, who are absolutely blessings.  I had a bunch of stuff going on last week and they were right there to give moral support and offer help.  They are the BEST!

We would love for you to join us this week.  I'm am looking forward to seeing all the different ways you create your backgrounds.  For more ideas, give the Girlfriends a visit and leave them a little love.

Challenge # 558 - Fantasy

It's hard to believe that we're half way through the month of July already.
But here we are and it's my turn to host the challenge this week.
I chose the theme "FANTASY"
so bring on your Dragons, Fairies, Mermaids, Gnomes ...
or in my case...Unicorns!
But most of all, have some FUN!

It's hard to see in the photo, but all the images are loaded with glitter...
because glitter is magical!
I used the stamp set from Mama Elephant.

Please join our challenge by creating a project and linking below. We can't wait to see what you make!
