Penny's Challenge #507

 Hey there~

It's time for another fabulous challenge at Penny's.  Of course, this challenge is always 'anything goes'.  Let's see who our sponsors are...


All Dressed Up
Prize~2 Digital images of the
winners choice

The Artsy Stamper
Prize~1 Stamp set of the winners
choice

Hetty Clare
Prize~2 Digital images of the winners
choice

I love this time of year.  All/most of the sponsors have announced there newest collections.  As a designer for Penny's we're are able to receive a image that might be brand new.  So I give a huge thank you to the sponsors.  Thank you for all that you do.  Go show them some love gang!

Now on to my creation.  My image is from Hetty Clare called Christmouse Wishes.
Here is what I have created.

Bright red card from Paper House and Graphic 45
background from the 12 Days of Christmas Collection.
Blue paper is a scrap and the snowflakes are from
a punch that I found somewhere.  I colored Mr. 
Christmouse with Prismacolor Pencils.  

The inside is more G45 12 days of Christmas paper.
The 2 signs are from a Big DCWV Christmas/
Winter Stack from 2013.

Here is the back.  I should say that the little 
pompoms are from a kit for children that was sold
by Joann's Fabric and Crafts.  

That is my project for this challenge.  I will be back with another creation in a fortnight.

Stay Safe, Stay Healthy and know you are blessed!

Penny's Challenge #506

 Welcome to my blog.  What's new?  Around here it's down to the wire on decorating for Halloween.  My daughter's birthday is the first week of October.  I started a tradition way back of having her birthday party Halloween themed.  Well 40+ years later I keep this tradition alive.  Just need to wrap presents next.  So happy that I got ahead in my DT assignments.  Let's get the blog entry started.  Our sponsors for challenge #506 are...

Twinkle Land Designs
Prize~8 pound store voucher

The Paper Shelter
Prize~3 Digi images of the winners
choice.

These two sponsors are fabulous!  Always ready to sponsor design teams and the designs are really really nice.  Go show some love!  Now on to my project.


My image is from Twinkle Land designs and is 
called Gingerbread Man Digi. This was a joy to 
create with.  I found a coloring book image of a 
cup and enlarged it using SCAL and my cutter. Cut
it out and I have a joint where is opens.  I used a
really pretty silver wrapping paper for the
background. If you look closely it has holographic
 snowflakes. I coloredmy image using Prismacolor
Pencils. Cut it out.  I used spray adhesive and
stuck that puppy down.  Attached the spoon also. 
 I found a snowflake punch a while back.
Punched out green glitter and red mirror paper
snowflakesand using foam squares put
a pair in each corner!



Here I used a piece of DCWV 2013 Christmas-
Winter stack.  I attached 2 more snowflakes and
stamped a sentiment.  Below the card are jingle
bells.  If you are my age I would put them on my
shoelaces in jr. high and high school.



 
If I remember, it was last year when I started putting the days left before Christmas on the blog.  So here is the first of that tradition.


Thanks for visiting.  I love comments.  I'll be back in two weeks with another creation.

Stay healthy, stay safe and know you are blessed.

Penny's Challenge #505 "Always Anything Goes"

 Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.  Have you ever just felt blah??? I don't know if I am coming down with something but I have NO desire to do anything but sleep and eat a little.  But I did complete my project for challenge #505.  First let's see who the sponsors are.

Sheepski Designs
Prize~3 Images of the winners choice

Cute As A Button
Prize~2 Images of the winners choice

I just love these two sponsors.  They both have wonderful and fun designs.  Go show some love my friends.

On to my creation.  I am using a image from Cute As A Button called Not a creature was stirring digital digi stamp.  This was a fun one to do.  Here are the details.

I printed out the image on my lazer printer.  I used
Prismacolor Pencils, Arteza Colored Pencils, a couple
of sharpies and I paper pieced the clock with white
glitter and the blanket with a pretty Christmas
themed scrap. Next I PNC the entire image using
my Silver Bullet 24" Pro cutter.  I printed the
title on heavy vellum using red ink.

I used that same heavy vellum for the Happy
Christmas. (that's fake snow on the surface &
boy what a pain to work with)

I know that you don't want to see this little sign.
Have you started your holiday routine yet?  I have
almost all my shopping done and just have to make
Christmas cards.  I will make sure to post them.  A
little word of advice, buy your items for your 
Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner NOW.  I didn't last
year and I couldn't find some items.  They will be
just fine until the New Year.  

So that is it for this Penny's challenge #505.  I hope that you are having a nice week.  I will see you again on Sept. 29, 2021.

Stay Safe, Stay Healthy and know you are very blessed.
