Crafty Creations Challenge #194: Just One

Just one . . I'm sure you want to know what that means for our newest challenge at Crafty Creations.

It's a recipe challenge, but you can only use one of each: embellishment, image, paper & word. Sounds easy, right? Well, go ahead & give it a try, then . . . Sometimes it's not as easy as it looks :)

Our sponsor is The Stamping Boutique, who generously provided the image for this creation.

Tuesday Alchemy Challenge #38: Dark, Gothic &/Or Spooky

Happy, happy Halloween! I know it's a day early, but it's a new challenge at Tuesday Alchemy and my creation explains it all . . .

Once again, we are lucky to have two wonderful sponsors offer lucky crafters a prize from their shops:

I invite you to share a little (or lot) of spookiness and fun with us!

{PIN}spirational Challenge #31: Photo - Sport Cupcakes

Sports . . . hhmm . . what to say, what to say . .

Oh, yeah, welcome to the newest challenge at {PIN}spirational Challenges. Are you inspired by these yummy cupcakes?

I hope so! I would enjoy seeing what you come up with. I'm sure it will be a sport or two or maybe just the colors. Whatever sparks your creativity will be perfect!

Our sponsor this week is Pink Cat Studio. I included one of their digital stamps in this creation. It's a sHOOper fan!

Ok, I know . . that was horrible, but I hope you enjoyed it even if it's just a wee bit :)

Anything But A Card Challenge #5: Black

I invite you to join the Anything But A Card challenge. It's all about black, so add this color to your creations and share it with us today!

I decided to create clippies. Black grosgrain ribbon was shaped into bows, then topped with layers of fabric flower shapes & finished with a fun lady bug.

Same But Different: Orange Skeleton Tags

I made these skeleton tags last Halloween, but I never used them.
I tucked them away in a box, forgot about them, then discovered them in my fall cleaning.
I decided to use them in cards as the main embellishment. The skeleton is actually a stretchy toy.

Boo From Skeleton

Oh, boy, am I bummed! I moderate any comments left on my blog.
And what did I do? I clicked "Delete" instead of "Publish" - Doh, doh, doh!
Eighteen comments were lost and there's nothing I can do to get them back.

Unfortunately, Blogger doesn't have a place that stores deleted comments.
Nor do they ask you if you really want to delete them before actually deleting them.
Ok, ok, I'll man up. I did click "Delete" after all.
