Woot, thank you ladies for joining in last month for our first Bugaboo Crafty Challenge… lots of lovely projects. Thankfully random.org had the task of picking a winner instead of me.. and that winner is… haha not that easy… you’ll have to scroll down to find out ūüôā

Before I get to that I wanted to also thank the DT ladies for another fabulous set of projects for this new challenge.

I pulled a fast one on them and offered them a chance to do their chosen image AND .. a mystery image project. Being the fabulous ladies they are, everyone took the plunge and accepted that challenge..so we all have 2 projects to share this month. One is our chosen image and the other was a mystery image, chosen by me that we all gave our own spin on.

First off here are the chosen project images…. well most of them oopsie…. Merrie and I are in the naughty corner this week lol. ¬†We both got caught up with real life and ¬†we’re running a bit behind. I got my ¬†main project post done, but still have to finish up my post for the mystery ¬†image…and Merrie got her Mystery image done and still has to finish up her posts.

They’ll all be there shortly… so be sure to ¬†check back for active links ūüôā ¬†In the meantime ¬†please enjoy the projects by DeeScraps & NanaDonna…

January 2017 Artists Challenge

Ok… ¬†let’s have some ¬†fun with a new theme for our fab artists. ¬†I was sat here thinking of a new theme¬†and smelling Double Chocolate Chocolate muffins permeate the air. I get to work, while the boys get to make goodies… but dang it smells good lol.
Not that THAT has anything whatsoever with the theme I came up with..I just thought I would share. ¬†I am actually prepping this post up early,since we all have so much going on over the Holidays… me included.

I hope they aren’t ALL for Santa Claus…..

Anywho… by the time this post goes live; ¬†the holidays will be virtually over, the ¬†presents will all be opened, ¬†the tree will be looking a bit neked if it’s even still up. ¬†Some of you will be nursing hangovers and memories of another fab New Year with friends and family. ¬†The trees will be coming down soon, the lights packed away for another year and ¬†2016 will be officially OVER. ¬†So in honor of 2016, a fab year filled with some fantastic crafters and artists and designers.. and ¬†a farewell to our blinky lights and glitter ornaments…

Here is our new theme inspired in part by the end of a year, the glam and the glitz of hollywood and a whole bunch of crazy ideas…. some of which I listed below for anyone needing inspiration.

“It’s a wrap”


Who could think It’s a wrap without thinking of Hollywood and ¬†movie making.. ¬† leading ladies, hearththrobs, glamour and glitz. ¬†The Awards season is upon us… if you needed any additional ideas, check out this list. Awards Season Calendar¬†¬†Please someone ¬†do the SAG awards lol… It’s just begging for some humorous old Hollywood Broad with saggy…. everythings.¬†

How  about Egyptian mummies? nothing like an ancient dead person to inspire a few age jokes.

….or if you like bandages but aren’t too keen on dead people… there is always the medical ¬†.. get well images for broken bones, bumped heads etc.

Want some more humor… how about ¬†the old weight loss wraps, perfect for all of those New Year Resolutions.. that most of us are NEVER gonna keep.

Wrap inspired keywords:

baby, candy, gift, nails, hair, hollywood, movies,end, finished, awards .. let’s see what you come up with.


  • Each artist may enter up to 10 individual NEW digital stamp images per given theme.
  • Images¬†can go on sale as soon as they have been entered into the challenge.
  • You may add single images, or link to a blog post with up to 10 images..but each image must be entered in the challenge linky individually.
  • You may showcase the images in color, or projects on your blog links should you wish to show off ¬†inspirational images too.

Club KennyK Facebook Challenge #1 1/15/16-1/30/16

This was a fun card to do…. ya’all know I love me some KennyK.

I started off with one of my practice sheets… colored with Chameleon, Zig KureColor, Ranger distress pens and a touch of Zig Memory system pens.  It’s printed on 110lb Card stock

Image is Chicos Chopper


Image was then measured up to a frame… and fussy cut for the emerging front wheel.   Slight cuts into the remaining image allowed me to slide it onto and over the edge of the frame and allow the rest to slide behind to be glued in place.
The frame and image were then mounted on a second piece of card for support and a double edged look, and then foam popped on a rectangular piece of adhesive foam sheet for height.





The framed image was then mounted on a card which I ran through a Darice striped folder, and then dry inked to give an industrial corrugated metal type look using white Memento ink.

The outer frame was inked to match and then 4 brads/studs added just for fun.

Card suitable for a variety of occasions..so no sentiment till needed.  Would make a great card for someone just passing their Bike test  LOL…

Super simple, quick and cute Bugaboostamps card.


This is my BugabooStamps January Challenge card…. You can use any Bugaboostamps image you want… and it’s obviously a coloring challenge.

This is something I colored a month or so ago and was in my practice card stack… love the Bugaboostamps Ladybugs and snails.. too cute.

Keeping it simple, the image is trimmed and the corners rounded…. mounted on a foam rectangle. This was mounted on a Red Polka Dot card base from Michaels; with matching rounded corners and a cutesie ribbon from the Michaels $1 bin, just for a little something extra.

Great card for allsorts of occasions..  leave it plain, or add a sentiment.

Image is colored with Chameleon pens…. if you ignore how long it takes some of us to pick a card base and matching ribbon…it’s a very quick project too ūüôā
