Elisabeth Bell World Challenge

Hiya Peeps!

I am a day late posting my challenge card, but I really do have a good reason!  My son and I went on a little mini vacation.  And when I say mini, I really mean a mini!  Friday afternoon we jumped in the car, went to a Casino/Mall/Entertainment center.  Booked into a Hotel for the night, and had an exhausting day of fun!  We did a little bit of clothes shopping for him, then played Ten Pin Bowling, went over to the Mini Golf course....played a little bit of that, then my son hit his ball there where no one can ever find it again, gave up on that idea.  Then he dragged me off to the games room where he was bouncing up and down wanting to do everything at the same time.  By this time, around 6:30pm, he was sooo tired, and I sooo hungry.  We went to a restaurant and had supper.  And whilst sitting there, he kept on complaining that this was taking to long, and that he wanted to go back to the games room.  When we were finally done with supper, it was 8:30pm.  He was sooo tired he started getting nausea's!  Well that was fun.  People glared at me for dragging my little kid over the mall, him being clearly tired.  I had to put my foot down and take him to bed!  Saturday morning got up, caught a movie (Puss in Boots) and then jumped back into the car and drove back home.  This one day excursion was all about him.  I had wanted to spend some quality time with him.  Sometimes with work and my obsession with crafting I feel my kiddies do not get the quality time they deserve.  Working on that!

It's that time of the month again!  A brand new challenge over at Elisabeth Bell World Challenge Blog!  This month our challenge is Stitches and Swirls.  Remember, you have to use an Elisabeth Bell image - any one of her images to be eligible for the prize.

Here is my card:

For my card I used Sweet Tooth.  This is such an adorable image.  I know from experience that I can never pass one of these gumball machine's without both of my children ramming back and begging for some gumballs!

Here is my card:

So I had a serious blond moment when I made this card.  When I was finished my DH came to tell me something, stood by my table looked at the card....frowned and said... "Happy Birthday? But it's a mother holding a baby?".  Oops!  I will have to change that sentiment!

Thank you for looking!

Time for a Challenge!

Hiya Peeps!

I visited Feline Playful and picked out a whole bunch of challenges that I wanted to enter!  I picked a Maggie I colored a while back...to try and save some time on making the card.  It still took a while!

Here is my card:

All the challenges I am entering:

1.  Craft Your Days away - Distressing (all the edges are distressed)
2.  Crazy for challenges - Layer it
3.  Drunken Stamper - Something new (DP, Charm and Zutter Distress it all bought exactly 1 week ago!)
4.  Mark's Finest paper - At least 4 layers
5.  My Sheri Crafts - New Things (DP, Charm and Zutter Distress it all bought exactly 1 week ago!)
6.  One stop craft challenge - Stitching
7.  Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturday's - Anything Goes
8.  Crafty Sentiment Designs - Punches / Dies
9.  Die Cutting Divas - Anything Goes
10.  Party Time Tuesday - Anything Goes
11.  Sassy Cheryl's - Punches and something shiny (Please click on image to see glitter DP)
12.  Heart Song Inspiration - Buttons / Brads
13.  Incy Wincy Designs - Flower Frenzy
14.  Kaboodle Doodles - Make it Girly
15.  Lexi't Creations - Fancy Folds
16.  Lollipop Crafts - Anything Goes
17.  Polly Craft - Favorite Things (Flowers!!! Always flowers)
18.  Crazy Challenges - Flowers
19.  Truly Madly Crafty - Anything Goes
20.  Robyn's Fetish - Make it Sparkle (Please click on image to see glitter DP)
21.  Scrappy Frogs - Lace
22.  Stamptacular Sunday's - Diamonds / Pearls 

Please know that all these challenges were picked before my card was made!  Picking a card design covered my Fancy Fold.  I decided the distressing with my super cool new Zutter was the next step.  Now, I have always felt like stitching and edge distressing goes hand in hand!  To make it shimmery and shiny I wanted to add stickles, only to realize that my DP was super glittery!  I always always always add flowers to my cards, so I added a few more to make sure it covered the Flower challenges.  Lace is also something I add a lot.  Oh few steps back.  I stared at my card for a long time to thing where I was going to add my punch, only to think making a frame type card would look super cool!  Pearls are almost always used on my cards, as for the brads, well!  I don't think I have ever combined both brads and pearls and was momentarily tickled as to what to do now!  But this I figured out at the start - Should I make an Easle card, there would be plenty of space at the top and bottom for the 2 not to clash....too much!  And then that leaves the Anything Goes Challenges, where hmmm....well, anything goes!

Thank You all for looking!  This was super fun.  

Lots of Hugs,

The Pixie Cottage Challenge
