my craft room, and donated so many
of my old craft suplies?
One being DCWV papers.
But oh well.
I used Jillibean Soup papers.
Loving that fox!!

Let's get dolled up

Happy Day to you all....
Thanks for stopping by.

A new challenge is starting over on
the Hiding In My Craft Room blog today.

HIMCR #266 - Super Scraps Saturday!

And the sponsor is:

The giveaway is 3 products from mhk designs!

We, as the design team, were given
the opportunity to choose our
images for this challenge.
I finally decided to choose 
this set, called Beautiful Bottles.
It is a beautiful set..
and I have always been intrigued with 
perfume bottles, especially the 
vintage ones.
The styles, the colors.
I am not one for perfume, 
but I do like how they are presented
in their glass bottles.

Here is what I created:

I used my Prismacolored pencils...
I really wanted to keep the vintage look, 
and as I really look at it now, 
I should have used different papers
for the background..
The papers are from Glitz Designs...
My picture is not the greatest...ugh..
I used a bit of Distress Paint, white picket fence, 
on the background to mute the colors a bit.

There you have it, folks.
Be sure to link up your projects
for a chance to win some 
beautiful images...they are
Challenge ends next Saturday 
at 2AM CST! So get yours entered today!

Wishing you.....

Happy Saturday!
How was your week?
Mine was a whirlwind of activity--
working, trying to get
everything ready for Little Miss'
return to school.
She starts this coming Wednesday.
Grade 1---wow---goes fast.
My other son started his second year of Cegep
this past week, too. Again, goes so fast.

Anyhow, on to what today is.
A new challenge!!

HIMCR #264 - Any Holiday!
And the sponsor??
The sponsor is Hiding in My Craft Room!

The giveaway is TBA.

So, with the challenge in mind, 
I set out to created a card
for an upcoming holiday that I always seem
to run out of cards for--Christmas.

I used a grid design, the squares
were cut down to 1.5 inches. I used
some of my scraps from an AC Christmas collection.
I ran one through my my Cuttlebug with
a snowflake embossing folder.
The sentiment stamp, from Inkadinkadoo,  is stamped with
Ranger Archival black ink.

Very simple design, but I personally love it. :)

That is it for me for now.
Until next time, mes amies!
