Crafty Awesomeness Challenge September 2017

Wahoooo…. September is here, and for a lot of you that means SCHOOL!!!!  And that also means peace … at least for some people lol.  It’s also the start of the end of summer… unless you live in Texas ..in which case.. ya’all got another 2 months to go haha.

I am sure by now most all of you are well aware of the  last few days in South Texas.. our thoughts are with ya’all if you live there, have friends, or family there…or have headed that way to help out.  The response has been amazing and we have  a lot of  these families in our locality now in shelters.

I have to say.. Texas really does step up to the plate  in times of need.  We  had so many people here from Katrina in need of a fresh start, and now North Texas has done it again for our Southern neighbors caught up in Hurricane Harvey.  It’s a reminder of how bloody awesome this country can be when the chips are down.

This month we have a mix of images by our sponsor… Rick St Dennis. His images are quirky and fun and a touch… DARK… for those of you who like  to take a little walk on the darkside now and then..MUHAHAHAHA.


Check out these fun projects by the DT team, and mine is running late.. yup again.  But it’s almost finished so should be posted this weekend.  I got a bit over adventurous on this one… but I love how it’s going.   Great projects again ladies !!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So  we had a lot of fab entries again last month… and the winner  of the Kitty Bee Designs digi….chosen randomly.. by random.org  IS ……

Well… better late than never right?   I am sooo sorry it took so long to get this months challenge up… but I hope you enjoy the fab projects and …our April Crafty Awesomeness Sponsor.

It’s a double trouble  sponsor month.  Not only do we have our regular monthly Bugaboostamps challenge which starts on the 15th of each month….   this month, to celebrate the opening of the  the new store… We have Bugaboostamps.  So all you Bugaboostamp fans.. you have twice the chance to  show off your projects and win some free stamps.  This is of course an anything goes as usual.

If you haven’t already checked out the new store.. you really should.

Ok .. I am going to pop the previous winner in  a separate post which should be  up hopefully.. tomorrow??? assuming no more personal disasters strike this month. This challenge will run through till the end of the month as always… and of course I will extend the claim time for last months winners due to the late announcement this month.

so  moving on swiftly as I still have to   write my own project post too….. here are the fun projects the  DT team made up using  4 of the newly added Retiring bundles.   We got  4 to play with and all chose one… some of the ladies will be adding in additional projects throughout the month… so be sure to check back and see what they have been up to.

NanaDonna  had  AKV BBQ set and she  made these two cute cards  which you can  find over at her Blog  nanadonnascarddreams













Merrie had a set called  AKV Birthday Set and you can see her  cards over on her blog Made by Merrie














and then we have the  the lovely Ms DeeScraps who had the AKV earth Day set and she  made these  fab cards to share with you all over at DeeScraps Corner

















and lastly.. I will be sharing mine later today… sorry my lil guy is having a rough night and needs some mommy snuggles.  As usual guess who ended up with the religious set…AKV God set.  Now most of you already know.. It’s not “my thing”,  but I did actually have a lot of fun with this set and I love how they turned out.  I had to be the black sheep again and didn’t make cards lol…I made some bookmarks and they will be winging their way to Canada for a little girl  I know to abandon.


Well I hope you enjoy  this challenge again this month, looking forward to seeing  all of the fab projects and  I hope you enjoyed ours 🙂

November 2016 “Crafty Awesomeness” Prize Challenge & October Winner

crafty_awesomeWelcome to another Crafty Awesomeness Challenge… let’s jump straight in with the winner for  the October Challenge…  the winner of a Sasayaki Glitter image is….

33. Dorothy: S

Congratulations Dorothy, please email me to claim your prize. Big thank you to Naz from Sasayaki Glitter for  being our October Sponsor and  for providing the fab images for the DT team last month.. we had a lot of fun with those.

This month our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps…. who have very kindly offered up a fab prize for one lucky winner.

PRIZE:

This month our random winner will  get 7 ..yes SEVEN  digital stamps from the Bugaboo store.  AND … if the  winner  used a Bugaboo stamp as the main image on their project, I will personally throw in another 3 stamps.  It is afterall.. time to be Thank full… right? …so this is my way of thanking you all for taking part. 

bugga

HOWEVER.. if the random winner didn’t use a Bugaboo stamp .. My girls and I will pick a (one) winner from all entries using a bugaboo stamp  this month and they will get the extra 3 stamps instead.

And so here we are,  right in the middle of some fab holidays.. Halloween just came and went and just around the corner Thanksgiving and then Christmas..are you all ready to gain a few pounds ??… I know I am.

One thing I have never been able to give up is a good old British Christmas dinner, luckily hubby loves Yorkshire Pudding and gravy and all that goodness too.  Although I can’t seem to convince him that roast potatoes are frickin awesome lol. I do try and incorporate  a few of the dishes he is used to as well… like sweet potatoes and green bean casserole.

Since his job means we rarely get Thanksgiving as a family.. we tend to make the most of Christmas dinner.  And  that means TURKEY !!!  Well it does now we stopped going to the big family get togethers haha .. oh the sacrafice!

So of course  the DT projects have to be  Holiday inspired.. so  enjoy !
