Blog Hop and 2 Week Challenge!

Can you feel the pressures of the Holidays so quickly approaching?
 Well I know I can! With house guests and last minute preparations, I am feeling the squeeze.

 I would like to take this moment to give you all thanks!
 Thanks for the endless creations that you all submit week after week.
 Thanks to our wonderful Design Team, these ladies are the absolute BEST, so caring and understanding, not to forget to mention CREATIVE! 
This year I have so much to be thankful for personally and as a co-owner of Crafty Creations.
 Our sponsors continue to be wonderfully supportive and our DT continues to amaze me at their never ending talent. (Even a few stamp designers on our team!)
 Lastly our amazing challenge takers,
 you continue to be the reason of such success and continuation.
 I hope that we can continue to inspire you this coming year as you have inspired us these past years.
 May you have a wonderful season with family and friends, whatever holiday you celebrate!

 Now on to the Challenge... this year we are keeping it simple!
 A card or gift of Gratitude or Thanks! 

There will be several prizes and winners
for this Challenge as well as a few along the way during the Blog Hop!
Sponsors Include:

Jaime's CTMH Shop
Mischief Kit

Hope Jacare (Claire)

Teeny Weeny Fimo Embellies and 3 IMAGES from Doodles by Hope Jacare

 Digi Doodle Shop

$10  Gift certificate!!
Digi Doodle Shop is the results of a mother and daughter’s love for the arts and crafts.  It was started a little over 3 years ago with a little more than 100 stamps, and has since then grown to almost 500 stamps.  Joy (the mother of this team) designs realistic images, while Judy (aka/daughter) loves the “fun side of life”, and create images with a cartoon flair.  Having these two complimenting styles have enabled
Digi Doodle Shop to offer a wide variety of stamps.

It is a real honor and pleasure to sponsor this challenge, and we look forward to seeing all the amazing creations.  We thank the design team for their incredible creations, and wish all the participants the very best of luck in this challenge.

Thank you so much for having us, and again the very best of luck to all of you.
Judy and Joy
