Guest Designer for "Craft Your Passion" Challenge #263

Good day!  Today is my second (and last) day to post as a guest designer for Craft Your Passion.  I have enjoyed working with them and both of the amazing sponsors this month.  The challenges at Craft Your Passion are always ANYTHING GOES so it is easy to enter a creative project.  This week the sponsor is OddballArtCo.  I like the description of the artist and her images found HERE.  It took me a while but it finally came together and I came to appreciate her "cute yet haunting" images.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #290 ~ To Die For

It is another Wednesday again.  They just seem to be coming faster and faster.  So, welcome to another new week and a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  This week our hostess is Susie and her challenge is "TO DIE FOR".  Now I know that doesn't sound good but I know she is wanting us to use a die cutting machine on our projects, either manual or electronic ~ she doesn't want us to literally die for crafting.  The English language is so very complicated with so many meanings of the same word and so very different.  Okay, grammar lesson aside, it is unusual for me not to die cut something on my cards but for some reason I was having a creative block and could not think of what I wanted to do.  I began surfing Pinterest and YouTube for ideas and finally decided to jump on the bandwagon of one of the hottest trends ~ shaker cards.  It was fun and I really like the outcome.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #289 ~ Make An Impression

Welcome back for another fun challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Last week life got in the way and I was unable to get my weekly Wednesday post done.  Did you miss it?  I sure did and am glad I am back on schedule.  This week our hostess is Carolyn and she wants us to "MAKE AN IMPRESSION" ~ use dry embossing on a project.  Not too hard, right?  Pull out those embossing folders or stencils and embossing tools that have been sitting there and put them to good use.

I chose to make something other than a card to show off my embossing.  This bookmark will be a quick gift when I just need to grab something small. And since I, and so many of my friends, love to read I am sure it will find a good home soon. The quote is from one of the all time favourite Dr. Seuss books too.

Until next time, keep crafting.
