Southern Girls Challenge Anything Goes

I'mmmmmm back!  Hope everyone had a very happy Valentines day.  I remembered to make a cute card and a special dinner.  The hubster forgot all about it.  That's OK.  I'll just spend a little more on craft supplies this month.

Over at Southern Girls Challenge, Team Trace is ready to go with the next challenge that starts Thursday March 5, 2020 at 9:00am AU time.  We have some great sponsors for this challenge.





Remember crafters, if you live in AU or NZ make sure you label your link.  You will be entered into a special drawing.  

This month my image is from Oddball Art.  The image is called Cute Fairy Girl in heart Antenna.  This I have to say was a challenge for me.  I wasn't quite sure what to do.  

That was all settled when a dear friend had emergency surgery.  Thinking of you card in purple on its way!  I wrote down every color I used and now can't find the paper.  Bet my kitty ate it.  Well here is what I came up with.

Once I had a plan the colors came together very quickly.  I have used
holographic silver, purple and green 1/8th inch ribbon and a lot of scraps.

I will write a note on the inside.

Here is the back side.

Well that's my post for this challenge.  I really really hope that you can enter.  It's a lot of fun.  Anything Goes is the theme.  So go create something.

Bright Blessings,

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #204 Add a heart

It's almost Valentines Day.  Over at Crafty Gals Corner Challenge for February 2020 we would like to see hearts.  So add a heart or make sure to enter a card that has a heart(s) already on it.  Just remember your project CAN NOT be one made/posted before our challenge goes live on February 12 at 6:00 am est.

Let's start by seeing who our incredible sponsors are for this challenge:

Prize~3 Digital Images



Prize~3 Digital Images



3~Digital Images



Prize~3 Single Digital Images

OK, I don't know about you but I am incredibly impressed with this months sponsors.  The sponsors don't have to do this.  Challenges could have you use an image you already own.  But how do you get those images in the first place?  You could purchase them.  Or you can enter and win a wonderful prize in our challenge.  So go give them some love my crafties.

This month I am so pleased to announce that my image is from Frbrika Fantasy called Fabulous Fishes.  I have taken a lot of pics so the page might load rather slowly.  Here we go!

Here are all the pieces.  I printed out the Fabulous Fishes image
 to the correct size.  I am making a 6x6 card.


The two pics above show some special paper I have had for ages. 
It is made byThe Paper Company and it is called Black Raindrops. 
The raindrops are black sticky plastic.  I only have a few sheets left. 

This is another paper by the Paper Company called Blue Ice. 
I am going to make a frame for the fishies.

I have marked off 1/8 inch on all sides of the fishes.  This is where
 I will put down the sticky tape.

Adding sticky tape that is 1/8 inch wide.

Got the frame done and now to mitre the corners.

Here is the final inside of my 6x6 card.

Here is the front.  I think that this turned out so cute.
 Not at all what I had in mind to begin with.  Remember
the rhyme that goes 2 little monkey sitting in
a tree, k.i.s.s.i.n.g.?  Well I modified it a little. 
I just hope 'the Bob' likes it.

Thank you so much for visiting this month.  I hope that you visit the rest of the design team for more ideas.  Until March,

Bright blessings,

Southern Girls Challenge

Hello and welcome!  Time for another challenge over at Southern Girls.  All the challenges are anything goes.  So post a new project and join the challenge.  And, if you live in AUS or NZ, you will be entered into a special prize drawing (make sure you label your entry for Country).  You can enter 2 new projects each challenge.  So here we go!

Let's start with introducing our sponsors.





For this challenge I am working with an image from Colour of Love called Steampunk Wix Moon.  This was a very creative project for me.  I kinda knew what I wanted to create but getting there sometimes throws a curveball.  I have a list of every single Prismacolor and Arteza pencils used if you would like a copy just ask. 

Here is what I came up with.

I think that she came together quite nicely.  The words of
course are from Disney's Cinderella c1950.  Saturn is a
foam stamp and the paper came fromDCVW
and is called the Stardust Stack 2013.



This is the inside.  I used a very old happy birthday stamp and
Silver WOW Embossing Powder.


This is the back.  For 2020 I made new stickers that tell
 how you can contact me.


All in all I am pleased with the end result.  Nothing like I wanted but very nice indeed.  Thank you for stopping by.  Be back in a couple of weeks with another Team Trace Southern Girls Challenge.

Bright Blessings,
