10 Minute Craft Dash #31

Hello! Time for another 10 Minute Craft Dash – almost the last of the year – so sad! I just love the color combo today – nice & bright. I think it was definitely intended to be for Christmas, but I needed a little break from Christmas cards, so I went a different route!

The amazing sponsor this week is Lawn Fawn, who are giving away a great prize – be sure to play along for a chance to win.

This simple card took me 7:31 to complete. This is definitely my go-to layout at the moment and, like I always say, that is key for me when doing the 10 Minute Craft Dash! I used a Studio Calico stamp and old card kit to put this card together. I thought it would be fun for my nephew’s upcoming 7th birthday.
Thanks for stopping by today and make sure to check out the amazing DT creations!

A Moxie Fab Thanks

Hey and welcome to a very special day on the old blog. We are honoring Cath Edvalson, the Trends Editor of Paper Crafts Magazine and the mastermind of Moxie Fab World.

Withgratitude

Cath has touched the lives of so many of us bloggers. For me personally, the content and challenges on the Moxie Fab blog have pushed me as a card maker – from inspirational photos to challenges that push my comfort zone – Cath has definitely helped me on my artistic path. I remember the first time one of my cards was ‘spotted’ by Cath and featured on the Moxie Fab blog through a link in her post – I was beyond excited. To think that she even had seen my blog was so exciting! I had the opportunity to meet her – albeit briefly – at CHA in Chicago in 2011. She was walking around with Susan Opel and they both offered words of encouragement for me to continue submitting work to Paper Crafts Magazine. That conversation has stayed with me until now and serves as a reminder if I ever feel frustrated. Cath is such a kind, positive and genuine person – I am grateful to have been touched by her Moxie Fabness.

Soloved

Now, this is one huge blog hop to celebrate – I think the list is well over 200 participants. You should have arrived here from the blog of Therese Calvird and your next stop is Frances Byrne. If you get lost along the way – please stop by Moxie Fab World for the complete list or see the entire list below.

Cupcake Craft Challenge = take a leaf out of my book

Hello! Back again on this autumnal Monday to share a new Cupcake challenge. This week’s theme is ‘take a leaf out of my book.’ You need to use leaves as the main interest of the project – either the image or embellishments.

I have a few leaf stamps that I just adore, and chose this Hero Arts one for this card – I paired it with the Papertrey Ink woodgrain impression plate and oranges & reds for an autumn-inspired creation.

Our sponsor this week is Tickled Pink Stamps who are kindly giving away either one rubber stamp or two digital images of the winner’s choice – how fab! And, its our last week with our lovely October sponsors. Polka Doodles are giving away one Pretty Sweet – Mini CD collection & Scrap Affair are giving away a 5 pack of Promarkers – great prizes so be sure to play along! And, don’t forget to check out all the great DT inspiration over at Cupcake!

Thanks for stopping by!
