Wee Christmas & a New Challenge Blog launch with candy!!

Whilst participating in the Caring Hearts Card Drive Blog Hop  that is on until Wednesday Oct 27....(my card for this can be found here, or keep scrolling down)...I came across another challenge blog that I just HAD to get in on. It is called Wee Memories & they are also teaming up with the Caring Hearts Card Drive Blog Hop.
The challenge at Wee Memories is Cute Holiday Project!
I have chosen this cute little hAnglar & stAnglar image that was 'sent' to me & now I am 'sending' it forward to the Caring Hearts Card Drive . This will be card #3 I've made especially for this drive, but I will be sending more cards for sure!
For details on the card drive (not the hop) click here or click the hearts on my right sidebar.

Sketch is Friday Sketchers.
I have used my fav. color technique of watercolor pencils, baby oil & blending stumps.
Papers are misc., except for the piece of BG stuck in there .
Sentiment tag is from 'Sentiments 4 You'.
Flowers are WOC.
Pin is homemade.
Red raffia lace I got from Bunny Zoes Crafts Store & the glittery red ric-rak, striped bow & soft candycane-like baker's twine (don't let the name fool you, it is supa soft) are all from Really Reasonable Ribbons.

I urge you to check out the card drive and participate in the blog hop if you get a chance.
Both of these have prizes involved, if that encourages you to take part!!
Heck while your at it, do the Wee Memories Challenge as well.

Other challenges for my card:
Pile it on- red, white & green with something soft
Christmas Cards Challenge- include flowers on your card
The Crafty Pad- Christmas
CSAYL- something metallic
Mami Doodles- Christmas/Thanksgiving (adjunct Vera's Card Drive)


Now what about that new challenge blog
It is called "Do it with Digi's"

This is what the founder, Lynne of  Stamp Around the Block has to say: 

"I'm here with some very, very, very, exciting news!!! On 1st December I am launching a new Challenge Blog DO IT WITH DIGI'S. I have assembled an absolutely fantastic Team of "Digi Divas" to delight you with their creations and they are all raring to go!!
We will launch on Wednesday 1st December with some very yummy blog candy.. Mmmmmm :o)
Blog candy will end on Midnight GMT on 31st December and the winner will be announced on 1st January 2011.
Our first challenge will begin on Thursday 6th January 2011 and will be a fortnightly challenge - we have some fabulous sponsors lined up with some great prizes for you :o)
I will also be popping in and out with some "FREEBIE" digi sentiments :o)
If you pop over now - the blog is up and running but still a work in progress - but you can become a follower and then when we update it and blog candy launches you will be notified.
We are all soooo excited for this and hope you will be too."

Lynne owns & operates the digi store "Sentiments 4 You" & I am proud to say that Lynne has asked me to be part of her team & I have graciously accepted.
She has some great sentiments in her store (including the tag I used on the card above) & is definitely worth checking out!
I also got my signature at her store, if you need one, hop over & take a look.

Hi Corry - stopping in to thank you for your kind comments on my Inking Pink post. I am a HUGE fan of your blog and Steel Magnolias!


Lin said...

Your first commenter described this as 'pure eye candy' and how right she was. I adore that mixture of background papers, they look like they shouldn't all go together but the effect is amazing.
