Challenge #159 'Add a heart'

Dear friends and family,  Happy Valentine's Day!  Hope you are all having a wonderful time in whatever you are doing.

So for this fortnights challenge, the theme is add a heart.  There are so many ideas that pop into my head.  But first let see who our sponsor(s) are for this challenge.

Scrap N Dipity

Prize-3 digital images

Prize-3 digital images

 Oh my golly gracious, make sure you visit and give them both some love.  They both have fabulous images.  My image this challenge is called Love Fairy 2015 and is by Scrap N Dipity (the image name on the CGCC web site is incorrect) What a fun image to color and create with.  So lets look at the card I have made.

(Picture Heavy, sorry)

Here are the two completed cards.

The purple card

The inside

The back.
I love decorating the back.
Never know what might show up.

The green card

This turned out to be a birthday card for our new employee at our shop.

And again the back of the card.

For the past few weeks, Hobby Lobby was having a clearance sale.  They are downsizing or re-designing the paper craft area.  They had a lot of supplies, stamps, tool and machines on sale.  I was one of the lucky ones to get a Gemini by Crafters Companion.  It was originally 179.99 and I got it for $45.00.  Score one for me.  So in the coming weeks, I will show off all my dies and embossing folders.

So grateful to have you visit this week.  Bright Blessings and have your best week ever!!!

Challenge #158 Crafty Gals Corner Challenge

Hello everyone!  How has this week been treating you?  It's Wednesday.  When I think of Wednesday I think of the commercial a few years back of the talking camel asking office workers what day it is?  The camel responds, it's hump day.  This commercial still tickles my funny bone.  Don't ask me what this has got to do with todays post, I haven't the faintest idea.  But that darned camel popped into my thinking.

So today starts a new challenge.  Crafty Gals Corner Challenge is proud to have as our sponsor this week The Paper Shelter.  Here is the logo and the prize for this next challenge.

PRIZE:  $15 Gift Certificate

The Paper Shelter generously provided images ready to use for projects.  Please visit and show some love.  It really is an outstanding shop!

My project this week is the file called The Snow Maiden. She is a part of the Winter Princesses Collection.  Which by the way is on sale right now!  So let me show you what I created.

The Front


I really LOVE the new sentiment.

I am not sure who this lovely is going to go too.  I have a few dear friends with birthdays coming up.  Now the next challenge is #159 and will be starting on February 17th, 2018.  I am wishing you a fabulous Valentines Day.  Even if you are single, treat yourself to some goodies.  You deserve it!!!

Big Hugs and Bright Blessings, Jana

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
