Challenge # 157 Anything Goes

Welcome back!  So happy that you found time in your day to visit!!!

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #157 is anything goes.  I do have a new rule to pass on.  Since we are now every two weeks with a challenge (200+) entries, please limit your entries to 3 projects.  Those three are ATG and the team can't wait to see your creations.  So lets get started with our FABULOUS SPONSOR(S) for this challenge.





Oh my golly gracious!  Do you see the amazing sponsors for the next 2 weeks?  Please please go show them some love.  Thank them for sponsoring this challenge!

On to what I was so lucky to create an example using the wonderful Pretty Grafik Design. My creation is an example called Baby Safari.  Here is what I came up with.

This is a box card.  I have had the pattern for years.

Here is the card folded up to send.

Here is a side view.

I am lucky enough to have a Silver Bullet Die Cutting Machine and I use Sure Cuts A Lot 4 Software to cut images.  Thank goodness, I wouldn't be on ANY design team if I didn't have my cutter.  My hands just can't fuzzy cut anymore.  You know, getting older is not for the young!

That is it for this fortnight (a fortnight is 2 weeks).  If you would like more info just email me at

Bright blessings, Jana

Challenge #156 Anything Goes

Well did everyone survive the holidays?  Personally our family had one of the best times in a long time.  Wasn't fancy but it sure was fun!

I have to take care of some news before we get to my new crafty creation.

Karen C. congratulations.  I have left a comment on your blog.  Contact me at and I will get your crafty loot out to you.  Thank you to all who left comments.  You really don't know how much I appreciate it!  Love and Hugs!!!

OK let's get this show on the road.  For the 1st challenge for 2018 we have some familiar sponsor(s).  

Prize:  7 Digital Images

Prize:  2 Digital Images

Prize:  $20 Gift Certificate

Friends please give some love to this weeks sponsor(s).  Without these fabulous sponsors there would not be any blog challenge sites at all.  So spread some love!

Now, to this weeks creative inspiration.  My digital image came from Paper Nest Dolls.  This is Avery with Heart Locket.  This image was a lot of fun to color.  A lot of possibilities to play with.  I colored this image with my NEW set of Prismacolor Colored Pencils that 'The Bob' got for me as a Christmas present this year.  (love you honey)

 Here is this weeks inspiration-

The back.

That is it for this week.  January 17th is our next challenge.  Can't wait to see you again.

Have your best 2 weeks ever!  Bright blessings, Jana
