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.

7 Kids College Fund & All That Scraps Challenges

7 Kids College Fund Challenge



Happy Wednesday!   Time for a new challenge at 7 Kids College Fund ~ Thank you cardz, brought to us by the extremely nice and VERY creative Julie of the Design Team.     This little cutie is from Magnolia, of course!   She’s the  sitting bridesmaid  from the Wedding Collection.



I’ve used my very last sheet of this (my all-time favorite) piece of DP from the Basic Grey porcelain collection … so sad!   This coming from a true craft product horder.    lol   

I’m trying to keep this short since I have two cardz to share, but HAD to let you know what the AMAZING prize is for one very lucky participant of this challenge  . . .

A $75.00 Gift Certificate to 7 Kids College Fund


What perfect timing just before Christmas!  

The reason for the LARGE prize is that Tab, the owner of 7KCF, wanted to thank everyone for their patience, understanding and well wishes after her 18 year old son was severely injured in a motorcycle accident on Halloween!   Fortunately, he’s recovering and doing much better . . . you can find the details HERE.

So, with such an easy challenge, you have NO reason NOT to join us!   Be sure to take a peek at the awesome Thank You cardz from the Design Team.

All That Scraps Challenge



Yay!   The totally amazing Amy Young has done it again!   She’s created four new fantastic images just in time for our new challenge this week at All That Scraps ~ Happy Birthday.     This adorable image is called Darby Cupcake.  (unfortunately, they are so new that I don’t find these stamps in the store yet.   I’ll be sure to update you when they are added.) 

 Can you tell I really enjoyed coloring this one?    I thought the green hair was perfect for this color combo.  



Yes, I like dots!   I get it from my dear friend Sue Kment  – I hope she likes this one!    Please excuse the big glop of Stickles on the lightning bug’s light rays.   You know what they say – haste makes waste!   So true.    I’m being buried alive in Magnolia projects for the next Magnolia Ink!   Our deadline is Thursday, so I’m hoping to take a nice rest after that!   🙂

Be sure to pop over to the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge blog to see all the wonderful creations from the always amazing DT AND the other three new images from Amy Young.

Phew, thanks for dropping by today.




Double Header Wednesday ~ 2 Challenges

All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge



Happy Wednesday!   I’ll try to keep this short since I’m combining two challenges today.    This first ADORABLE image, Oleander,  is new for September and designed by the awesome Amy Young for C.C. Designs Sweet November.   As soon as I saw her, I knew I NEEDED to have her  ~   I just love her eyes …    



Our challenge this week at the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge blog is Clear Cards.    And, as you can see  –  I totally blew it!!    In my mind I was thinking acetate cards, not necessarily clear!   I used a Spelllbinders Impressabilities as a stencil and sponged white ink onto the top layer of acetate and then attached a piece of DP to the inside – making my card NOT clear!!    I about cried when I realized what I had done, but Lesa, the VERY sweet DT coordinator at ATS, said it was okay!    Phew!

So, be sure to take a peek at the TRUE clear cards from the SUPER talented DT at the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge blog.   

7 Kids College Fund Challenge



We’ve got another awesome Sketch Challenge for you this week at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge blog.   It was designed by Lisa Andrews of the DT . . .


Lisa also asked that we “double up” our cards for this sketch  (use two stamps) . . .



I thought this scary pirate would keep the recipient from daring to open the card before Halloween!  🙂    Hope you can also pop over to the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge blog to see all the cards from the awesome design team.

And, last but not least, here’s a photo right after delivery of my brand new grandaughter – Sophie, born Monday morning! 



Thanks for visiting today!
