Embossing Challenge

The challenge on Scrap and Stamp was to emboss something on your layout. The lion is embossed, so are the letters in the title. I also embossed a skull on the arrow pointing to the tail.

My Favorite Embossing File

Challenge #42 over on The Cuttlebug Spot has two requirements. One is to create a card with your favorite embossing folder. My favorite folder is Perfectly Paisley. This is almost like a card I did before, but I embellished more on this one:

Copic Colored Flower

The Pink Elephant Challenge # 26 is a recipe: 3 Brads,1 Flower and Designer Paper. I don't usually do recipe challenges because my cards tend to turn out rather plain then. With that said, I have posted my plain card above. Go easy on me. lol
I had colored the flower with Copic markers for the contest over at Crafty Goings On They are giving away a 72 Copic markers set as blog candy.
I chose a flower image because of A Spoon Full of Sugar's challenge #63 is Floral Fantasy. (make a card with something floral on it)

Halloween Card Number 1

Challenge #52 over at Ann's Creative Nook is to make a Halloween card, project or scrapbook with whatever types of Halloween images you have. Well, I love Halloween and could not wait to do this challenge.
Then I discovered that Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge # 7 was a Halloween theme card. It had to have these three things: the color purple, a zig zag, a pumpkin. Easy enough to include in my card, so I could do this challenge as well.
Now on Papertake Weekly the challenge was to use colors and/or things that are associate with a season. When I think of Fall, I think of Halloween with purple, orange and black.
With all three of these in mind, I completed the card above.

Lovely Surprise

I received a lovely surprise from my friend Jan today. She has given me "Thr Circle of Friends Award ", and I want to thank her for thinking and nominating me. I first met Jan on Jean Art Dolls, but we keep running into each other in other groups. We enjoy and participate in similar arts and crafts ventures, so our paths cross frequently. Jan is an extremely creative and talented artist that has been published in a variety of different magazines, so you may already know her name. You should check out her blog and become a follower so that you don‘t miss a thing she does: Papercraft Pleasures.Here are the rules for this award: To pick up the Circle of Friends Blog Award cut and paste the award logo and use it on your own blog. Nominate 5 other bloggers you feel have become part of your circle of friends. Link to your nominees within your blog post. Include these instructions on how to pick up the award in your blog post. Link back to the person who gave you the award in your blog post, to show your appreciation. Comment on their blogs to let them know they've received the award.
I'm giving this award to Marlene, Melody, Lou, Jackie and of course Cindy (who has been in a terrible car accident, and won't be able to collect her award until later).
