October 2017 Crafty Awesomeness Challenge

Well here we go again….. It’s almost time for  Halloween!  who’s ready ?

Well I thought I would try something different and threw down a little theme for my ladies… and of course my ladies threw it right back at me lol.  Thanks girls lol.. that is what I love about this DT team… we are exactly that A TEAM and we all take charge of our crafty destiny.

So I throw out Black on Black with one additional color if needed … and I get back….


..and this is why I love my ladies lol. Everyone is perfectly happy and comfortable enough with each other that bending the rules and doing as they please is totally cool…and so beautifully done too.

All teasing aside..  the black was just an idea I had since Halloween was approaching and we rarely see Black on Black and it was something I wanted to play with.   And let’s be fair.. not everyone is like me and would love a Black on Black wedding card, or sympathy card haha.  If you haven’t tried it… it’s definitely a fun one to play with.

I have visitors coming in from out of state…  and still caught up with jobhunting and such, but I will try and get my project done ASAP.  I did do one, but was too impatient and already posted it last week lol…so I need to make a new one for the challenge.

Ok… so winner announcement for the September Challenge.. will be posted later night.

And I am sponsoring this month’s prize…. which is>>>> a $10 Gift cert for

Message Board Challenge cards


Bi Weekly Challenge 


It’s been rather quiet over on the board challenges … everyone has been travelling for the holidays, or busy celebrating with family.

I managed to squeeze in a couple of quick cards for December, very simple cards… but fun to do….and I still have two days left to try and do a couple more of the challenges.

This one is a sketch based card using your favorite two color combo…

I am really hoping to get the I am the Executioner – Card Challenge!!!! and the KennyK Monthly Card Challenge done over the next two days. “I am the executioner”  is a challenge to decorate glass with vinyl and etching…. I love glass etching, so I really want to try and get that one done.


Bugaboo Stamp Members Choice Challenge

This one is a Bugaboo stamp colored with Chameleon pens and a touch of Gelly Roll stardust then foam mounted.


Creative Coloring Card Challenge

This one is super simple… I love this image from justinklined.com and it  just appealed to my sense of humor.

It’s one of their Freebie images, so be sure to check them out.
