Exciting Newz to share ~ plus Copic Creations & All That Scraps Challenges

Some exciting newz to  share!!   I was soooo excited to have been asked by the Editor of Scrap Street.com Magazine if they could use one of my Phindy’s Place Christmas Cuties cardz in their Holiday magazine edition being released today!!   

If you haven’t heard of it, it is an online scrapbooking magazine, five years running, with over a million hits a month!   I hope you have a minute to take a peek!     😀 

And what great timing by WordPress to add the falling snow today!  

All the details on this card can be found in the ScrapStreet.com Magazine here



Copic Creations Challenge:



Happy Wednesday and December 1st!!   Can you believe it?!    Time is flying by.    We have a great challenge this week at the Copic Creations blog . . . one that I think many struggle with ~ LIGHT SOURCE – where light hits and creates shadows.    And, we have an awesome sponsor, one of my most favorite!   Whimsy Stamps ~ with a couple of awesome prizes!!    Better check it out HERE.



I totally fell in LOVE with this adorable image illustrated by the awesome Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy.   It’s called Touched by Love and is a brand new image being released today!    I added the star, hoping to make my “light source” a little more pronounced.    

I hope you can pop over to the Copic Creations Challenge blog to take a peek at the other Whimsy images showcased by the always amazing Copic Creations Design Team!    They’re the best!!  

All That Scraps Challenge:



Nope, our challenge this week is NOT sparkle!   But boy did I go a little overboard with the sparkle on this one!!   Eeek.   The actual challenge this week at All That Scraps is SNOWFLAKES.     This gorgeous image from the awesome Amy Young is another brand new release for the month of December at All That Scraps.  



Be sure to pop over to the All That Scraps Challenge blog to see all the SNOWFLAKE samples from the DT – I know you’ll be inspired to join us!

Thanks for stopping by today.
