Challenge # 209 - Halloween Colors

Holy Moly!  Already the last weekend in September?!  When did that happen?  LOL.  We hope everyone is still finding time to craft in between fall festivals and football games.  To help get you going, we have a fun new challenge for you, but first, our sponsors:
We are always pleased to welcome back Simply B Stamps!
Here's a little about the company in owner Betty's own words:

"Simply Betty Stamps was born around the same time my little guy was born.  Having had to close down my actual scrapbook and rubber stamp store due to his early arrival I was stuck at home with nothing to do.  I started blogging and learned about digis, and thought... hey I can draw!  I wanted to work, but didn't want to do the 9-5 nor leave my baby, so...Simply Betty Stamps came about.  I have tend to put out what is close to me and my heart, my kids!  My teens as well as my Bettys and Judes are inspired by my kids shenanigans and that of my own!  I hope to inspire as well as learn from others in this crafty community."
Betty has generously offered our winner a $15 gift voucher to her online shop!  You can find all her fun and funky images HERE!  Whether you love digis, rubber, or clear stamps, Betty has an eclectic mix that's sure to please the "quirk in you"!

And that's not all, once again, we have not one but two amazing sponsors!  
We are excited to also welcome back Aurora Wings and the beautiful fantasy art of Mitzi Sato-Wiuff.  Here is a little about Mitzi from her website:

"Being originally from Japan, my work reflects the influence of the vintage shoujo manga and classic tattoo artists of my native country.  There is a strong emphasis on the clean and detailed line art  hand drawn in pen on paper, which is colored digitally in my own unique coloring technique using Corel Painter program.  My fusion of traditional and digital media produces a look reminiscent of watercolor paintings.  I hope my fantasy images will take you into the world of pure imagination, presenting each subject in fluid lines and beautiful colors."

Mitzi is offering a $10 gift certificate for a lucky winner!

Now let's get down to business! Halloween is serious business to many members of our team. The decorating, the dressing up, the candy, the fun, the FABULOUS COLORS...which leads us to your challenge: create a project containing any combination of the following colors: black, orange, purple, green (white/cream and kraft are also allowed).

Here's what the team scared up from their craftrooms:

and a lovely photo page featuring Aurora Wings

Challenge # 208 - Autumn/Fall

Good morning crafters!  The air is beginning to have that chill in it, leaves are starting to turn, the kids are back to school, football is on the TV.  Pumpkins, apples and candy are all out in the store.  Fall has officially arrived!  It was a pretty easy choice for our new challenge to ring in the fall season...create an Autumn/Fall themed project.   We are so thrilled to welcome back The Paper Shelter as our fab sponsor for the new challenge.  They have a rapidly expanding collection of adorable, fun, sweet images that have clean lines, excellent print quality, and you even get a colored version with your order!

There are so many fabulous images available at The Paper Shelter it's hard to ever pick just one.  The team was lucky enough to be able to choose from two images Autumn Attitude and Autumn Leaves.  Here's some amazing autumn inspiration from our lovely ladies...



Not bad, right?  Now it's time for you to share your festive fall creations with us.  The lucky winner of this challenge will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Paper Shelter store!
