Make it sparkle Challenge #183

Hello everyone!  I have a really great creation to share with you today.  It has lots of sparkles.  But first let me introduce you to our sponsors for the challenge.


Prize ~ 3 Digital Images

Prize ~ 3 Digital Images


Prize ~ $5 Gift Certificate

Ready for the speil?  Please go show some love to our amazing sponsors.  Without them there would be NO Crafty Gals Corner Challenges.

Many moons ago on this blog I tried to list everything I used on a project.  Don't know if I will try that again or not.  What do you think gang?  Let me know in the comments.  I might show a little love.

This challenge is Make it sparkle!  I have used an image from Morgan's Art World called Heart Image #14.  This is a lovely image and has a lot of possibilities.  I used it as a focal point to my card this challenge.  Here is what I came up with.

Here she is!  The base is by K&Co. called Blossom Flourish. The corners are made of Dollar Tree Glitter Paper. The die used is made by Die'sire by Crafters Companion. It came with the purchase of my Gemini at Hobby Lobby. I colored the image using Prismacolor Colored Pencils.  (I do have a list if you would want it)
The inside is blank and generic.  I really don't know what type
of card this is yet.



This is the back.  This shows off the base paper.  It really does sparkle!

Well that's my project for this fortnights challenge.  I hope I have inspired you to go create something.  

Don't forget to let me know about listing all items used.  Just leave a comment.

Bright Blessings,

Snow much fun! Challenge # 182

Happy New Year!

I hope that this new year blesses you with hope, love and peace.  Today is January 2, 2019.  The first challenge of the new year is an introduction to our new design team members and a blog hop also.  You should have just visited Dawn.  If not here is the list of all the design team members both old and new. 
Jana ~You are here

I am super excited! There is a lot of amazing talent in this years design team. Lets welcome Billie, Carol, Connie and Dawn to the Crafty Gals Corner Challenge.

Now this challenge is 'Snow Much Fun'. But first let's see who our amazing sponsors are.

Prize ~ $15 Gift Certificate


Prize ~ $12 Gift Certificate


How fabulous are these sponsors?  Yes I harp on this, go show some love.  Without our sponsors there just wouldn't be a Crafty Gals Corner Challenge that we know and love!!!

Now on to my creation for this challenge.  I have used Snowman Couple Digi # 872BG From Sparkle n Sprinkle.  This image is so cute.  Let me show you what I came up with.

This is a pre-colored image.  I printed it out and then created a background
using Pebbles Chalk.  I cut 10 1" snowflakes out of mirrored silver paper
and put a gem stone in the center of each one.

The background paper has snowflakes on it.  So the 6 leftover snowflakes
landed on the inside of the card.

This is the back.  It has my makers sticker and a round stamped saying
"The happiest happy mail ever made by Jana"


I hope you have enjoyed my project.  Next up on the Crafty Gals Corner Challenge Blog Hop is DT Jeanie.  Enjoy the hop and stop by anytime!

Bright blessings,

Now let me show you what I have created for the Anniversary/Year End Challenge of Anything Goes.  Here we go...
This image is from Bugaboo Stamps. and is called 'Birthday Elle'.
 I just love elephants.  This was fun to color and design. 
Happy New Year 2019 are rub on numbers and
Happy New Year I cut out using
my KNK Zing w/ Make The Cut Software.
This image is from The Paper Nest Dolls.  She is called 'Sewing Avery'.
 I loved coloring her.  I had a lot of fun on the background. 
I found a quilt block pattern I liked and actually
 quilted on paper with paper I picked out.  Here's a pic...
I cut all the little squares and right triangles using
Make The Cut software.  Next I scaled it to the size I wanted for the
 background.  Super Simple and looks pretty darned cool.


Well that's it for 2018.  Where has the year gone.  I hope to make some changes to the blog for 2019.  Maybe a new design but for sure letting you know what I used for each project.  

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 

Next challenge is January 2, 2019 and it's a blog hop to introduce the new Design Team Members.
