Crafty Gals Corner Challenge # 151 'Anything Goes'

Welcome to my blog.  So happy that you could take some 'me' time and come visit.  This weeks challenge is 'Anything Goes'.  I have chosen an image from a great sponsor.  So first let me introduce the sponsor(s) for this week.

Prize:  $15 Gift certificate

I just have to tell you, go visit Sparkle N Sprinkle!  What a fantastic company and their images are fantastic.  Sparkle N Sprinkle have images to suit any occasion!

Now this week, I have used the image Flying Birthday Girl.  This image was so fun to create with.  I wanted to make a birthday card for a dear friend.  This was just perfect.  So let me show you what I created.  

Isn't she wonderful!

With envelope
The inside
Back of the card.

This card was quick and easy (Christmas Time is always busy).  I am sure that she will get a big kick out of this card.   

Thats it for this week.  I'll be back on December 13, 2017 for another creation!  
Bright Blessings, Jana

' Thankful' Challenge #149

This time of year I get to thinking about things/moments that are in the past.  I remember great big family dinners with cousins, aunts and uncles.  I remember and still crave my Auntie Francis's homemade dinner rolls.  She had to make special pans for us kids to eat right out of the oven with plenty of butter.  So this week is your chance to be 'Thankful".  It could be gatherings of family, not having to drive this year or anything you want.  So dream up something you are thankful for.  Before I show you what I came up with; lets see who our sponsor(s) are for this week.

Prize: 2 Digital Images

Prize:  2 Digital Images

Holy moly, two of my favorite sponsors this week.  If you can, go visit and leave some love.  My image this week is 3 Autumn Girls by All Dressed Up.  All of their images are crisp and clean and they import to a cutter program like SCAL4 or MTC beautifully.  I am very thankful for my great girlfriends.  We might not have gotten together for a long time, but when we do it's like we just talked yesterday.  So this is for Dolores and Carolyn.  Love you ladies.

I just love how this card came out.

Now I just have to make another card and I can send one to each of my girlfriends.  I am also thankful for all of you that come and visit each week.  It makes me feel honored. 

Be back in two weeks.  Off the top of my head I don't know what the challenge is but it's almost Christmas.  Stay Tuned!!!

Blessings, Jana

Challenge #147 Harvest Colors Crafty Gals Corner challenge

I am writing this as little munchkins are traveling the streets looking for treats.  I LOVE Halloween!  I have since I was a kid myself.  Dressing up and pretending to be someone or thing is to this day something I enjoy.  So it is NO surprise that this weeks challenge is Harvest Colors.  But as always, lets see who our fantastic sponsor(s) are for this week.

Prize:  3 Digital Images

Have you recently looked at Morgans Art World shop?  It is simply amazing.  So many beautiful images to color.  I always get lost in creating cards in my head and want to purchase everything!  So THANK YOU Morgans Art World for being our sponsor this week.

So this week I have a image called Fae 37.  It's a mandala with a faery in the center and a beautiful border of leaves and flowers.  I colored the image using Sivo Vivid Colored Pencils.  Then cut out the circle and edged with gold ink.  The background is a paper I found years ago at Tuesday Morning.  It is a ColorBok product.  Next I rounded the corners of the background paper.  I had some left over leaves and trimmed them down.  Glued each leaf down.  I used some window foam that you use to block a draft to lift up the mandala.  It's sticky on one side only so I still needed to use my ATG.  Smacked that baby down found a sparkle for a corner and that's it.  Here is the finished product!

My Harvest Color Challenge inspiration!
Thank you so much for visiting.  The Crafty Gals team will be back on November 18 with another fabulous challenge.  So Happy Halloween!  Bright blessings, Jana
