Challenge #45 - "These are a few of my favourite things....."


We hope you all had a safe and fun-filled holiday season spent with family & friends!!!!! This year we have some GREAT challenges, AWESOME sponsors and some FABULOUS prizes for you!!!! We will be doing a MONTHLY prize draw starting in January rather than a weekly prize. Everyone who enters the challenges in January has a chance to win some GREAT prizes!! For the month of January, you can win the following:

4 digi stamps from Stretch and Bubbles
One SU stamp set
Scrapbook stickers
a package of Chipboard letters

This month our sponsor is STRETCH N BUBBLES, here is a little bit about the artist:

I have been crafting all my life. Ever since I can remember I have made/created things.I really started “Scrapbooking/Card making” in 1996 when my dear friend Lisa Bearnson introduced me to her new magazine Creating Keepsakes.. after that I was HOOKED!.. I do both scrapbooking and card making.. I enjoy each for different but similar reasons. I love to create, design, and do anything with my hands.. I have never taken any kind of art class (though I should have) but I have just started my love for Digi Stamps. I have found I have a special place in my heart for drawing, and if I can share them in the process. I am happy to do that..
I have a wonderful husband who I love and cherish. HE is AMAZING!!! We have two beautiful children. Stretch who is 9 years old and Bubbles who is 15 months old… that’s where I got my blog name. The names came from my dad.. Poppie who gives each of the grandchildren “magic names” after they are born so those are their magic names and we love them...

I hope to inspire you with some of my designs. I can’t wait to meet and be inspired by each and every one of you.

NOW, on to the challenge!!! This week your challenge is to use TWO of your FAVOURITE embellishments on your card or project! That shouldn't be too hard (although it might be hard for me to choose ONLY two of my favourites!!! I have so many!!!)

Here are the Design Team's projects:

JANET'S favourite embellishments are rhinestones and flowers!

BLACK DRAGON's favourite embellishments are the mirror tiles and the copper heart!
