I've been so busy these last couple of weeks, I almost forgot, it's Fab N Funky's first birthday party! To make sure we've got lots of time to get ready for the big event (prizes galore!) we've made this week's challenge an easy one - Anything goes!
I'm still having fun with last week's challenge, I've been digging up all sorts of stamps I haven't seen in a while. I bought these a couple of months ago, but only used them once. I'm also on a big clean and simple kick - the easier the better.
Challenges for this week:
colours - There She Goes
sketch - CPS
Thanks/Gratitude - Stamp Something, Raise The Bar
Butterflies - Oh Alice
circles - Crazy 4 Challenges
Staples - the Crazy Challenge
in 3's - Daring Cardmakers

Sorry I'm late, computer troubles at my end prevented me uploading my card last night. Too bad, cause things are starting to settle down here, and the mojo is slowly returning. I made this sweet and simple card which turned out exactly like I envisioned it - that hasn't happened in a while!
This weeks challenge at Fab N Funky is Forget Me Not...I know you have them, old stamps that are gathering dust, hidden away with some pretty awful patterned paper the the oodles of stickers we all had to have. I used a Stampin' Up stamp, no idea what it's called, but it's a set of 4 - circle, triangle, square and rectangle. I used the rectangle to stamp the background and then a nestie for the title block. I also stitched my letters, I love how this turned out and I know I will be doing it again.
So, let's see what stamps you have at the back of the closet - pull em out and get stamping!
Challenges this week:
Sketch - Everything but the Kitchen Sink
Colours - Curtain Call
Anything Goes - Cute Card Thursday, Fairytale Challenge (at least I think so, this one's mostly in German??)
Thanks - the Crazy Challenge, Frosted Designs
Clean & Simple - Dutch Dare
Sewing - Drunken Stampers
Use Patterned paper - Wee Memories (It's tiny, but it's there!)

Very tired... will fill in the details tomorrow...crazy busy with craft shows and home parties...seeing altered frames in my dreams...ZZZZ
Ok, I'm awake now! It's been pretty carzy around here, I had a crop planned for this weekend, but I had to cancel it, so I signed up last minute for a craft show and I've been making stuff like crazy to sell. I have a class next weekend and then another show the weekend after. Just warning you all that I won't be around much till December - then I'll be able to relax. (oh wait, I still have to make Christmas cards, eek!)
This week's challenge at Fab N Funky is Going Around in Circles. I went the easy route, and cut the biggest circle I could with my Nesties to make a card. (those Grand Nesties look like they'll make some great cards!) Coloured up this cute image from Stitchy Bear, who also happens to be this weeks sponsor, et voila. Can't wait to see what you come up with this week!

OK, I totally apologize for flaking on everyone last week, sometimes the mojo just takes a walk and you need to take a break. I managed to zip round and leave comments on all your beautiful CAS cards, and that provided some inspiration for this week's card.
The challenge this week at Fab N Funky is a colour challenge:
I had this cute image from Softpencil, but wasn't sure how to colour in the leaves, so I ended up punching the leaves and adding some felt flowers. (Actually, hubby punched and I stuck, those CM punches are darn stiff!) I was going to add a sentiment, but couldn't decide, so I'm leaving it blank for now.
Don't forget, this week's sponsor is Softpencil, so let's see what you can do with these colours!
Use punches - 4 Crafty Chicks
Anything Goes - Wee memories
No Copics - Drunken Stamper (they're on the shopping list, but I don't have any yet!)
