Aud Sentiments #147: Anything Goes!

Happy Thursday! Wow, January is almost done already. Busy busy busy! I've been a very bad blogger and I have a pile of cards that were shared on the various DT posts on challenge and shop blogs, but got lost in my insanity around here. I'll get them shared soon for all to see! 
 
But for now, I'm on time! I'm so excited to be back here today sharing a card with you for the Aud Sentiments DT! Aud Sentiments is a bi-weekly challenge with a theme. The one special thing to note is you MUST use a sentiment on your card to enter our challenge. It can be on the inside even, just show us the sentiment!
The current challenge is sponsored by the Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog! More details on the prize can be found on the challenge blog post for this challenge. As always, fantastic and generous prizes are up for grabs!

Here is my project, featuring images from JessicaLynnOriginal.com. These are from the Brentwood Owl Rock Lobster Under the Sea set. I decided to make the bowl itself the model for the card, so I went with CIRCLES for everything! I had a lot of fun creating this scene :)



Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to link up your lovelies over at Aud Sentiments for your chance to win! Remember, you MUST include a sentiment to enter our challenge! We love seeing all of your creations on the linkup :)

Craft Rocket Challenge #6: Happy Everything and GDT!

Hello everyone! Welcome back to REAL LIFE! It has been a bit (totally) crazy here between everyone taking turns being sick, Christmas, New Year's, visits to and from friends and family...you name it and I think we probably had it! I will be getting caught up on blog posts now, even though I'm sorry to say some of the challenges are past. You may have seen my projects on the challenge blogs if you were following along, I MADE them all, I just had some major unplugged time and didn't get any blogging of my own done. Sheesh! Hopefully everyone hasn't given up on me....

Well I am getting back into the swing of things with a fun project created for Craft Rocket. This is challenge #6, with a theme of "Happy Anything". The challenge will run until next Wednesday at 6 am CST. You can link up your projects over on the Craft Rocket blog, we'd love to have you play along!

Here is my project, featuring a gorgeous dog stamp from JessicaLynnOriginal.com. This image is from the Herding Dogs clear stamp set. I used a sketch today, Mojo Monday #429


Here is the sketch:



And my amazing GDT badge from the wonderful Lisa at Craft Rocket. I'm so thrilled to have joined this talented crew for this fortnight's challenge! Thank you for choosing me to create with you! Don't forget to link up your "Happy Anything" projects on the Craft Rocket challenge blog!



Hope everyone's New Year is off to a great start. I'd better get back to catching up on my blog post writing - see you soon!

Aud Sentiments #146: Thank You

Happy New Year!

It's always fun to start a new year with a clean slate. Did you make any New Year's Resolutions? Did you get lots of new crafty goodies you can't wait to try out?

With this new year, Aud Sentiments is moving in a new direction. We are making some changes to our challenges. We will continue to host challenges ever two weeks, with a sentiment as part of the project. The biggest change is that the DT will be showcasing projects with more variety. In this new year, we hope to stretch our crafty wings and provide sample projects beyond cards. You will see altered art, scrapbook pages, tags, pocket letters, home decor, and much more! Of course we will still be making cards, but with more folds, shapes and variety of techniques used. We hope that you, our challenge participants, will join us in reaching beyond your comfort zone to make projects that really show us your crafty side!

The current challenge is sponsored by Imagine That! Digis by Kris! As always, fantastic and generous prizes are up for grabs!

Here is my project, featuring Hedgehog Greetings.This sweet little hedgie guy is too perfect for a Thank You project. I love his face!




I followed a sketch for my card today, Mojo Monday #429. Here it is, and it's a good one!
