Hello to all, here we are on another beautiful day, wednesday that is. Yes, this means we have another fun challenge for you , but first I want to let you know we have a special Guest Designer for the whole month of November, so help me in welcoming LINDSEY. She was kind enough to tell us a little about herself:

"I am so honoured to be guest-designing for Crafty Creations this month! I started collecting rubber stamps about 20 years ago, at first for use as an elementary school teacher. Then I saw heat-embossing demonstrated in a stamp store, and I was totally hooked. I started making cards more seriously about three years ago, and at the urging of friends, started a blog called BASHFUL BLOGGING late last year. My style is very clean and simple. Hope you’ll join us for the challenges this month!"

Lindsey's work is one I visit regularly, first because she is so sweet and also for inspiration from her unique style of cardmaking. She is very CAS oriented and  seems to have mastered the art of using less and making magic with her creative mind. Make sure you stop by her blog and have a peek at what she is creating for you all month long.

Now, on to this week's challenge. I am hosting and yep, this is my last color challenge for this year anyway. You are to use:
GREEN PURPLE - SILVER - and snow in any way  shape or form, ie, flower soft, fun flock, snow writer, crystal fine and even silver pearls (as I did with my penguin). You get the idea. So make sure you play again this week.
Strech n' Bubbles is offering 5 digital images to our winner.

Remember if you upload to scs used CCCW142 in your keywords so we can see your cards.

Here is a little bit about STRECH N' BUBBLES:
I really started “Scrapbooking/Card making” in 1996 when my dear friend Lisa Bearnson introduced to her new magazine Creating Keepsakes.. after that I was HOOKED!.. I do both scrapbooking and card making.. I have been published in many magazines, worked for Creating Keepsakes as a designer for products sold on QVC, and won many contests. I am the owner of Do You Stack Up?! Challenge blog, Free Digital Stamps blog, & Stretch N' Bubbles Digital Stamps blog/store. I quickly fell in love with the idea of digital stamps. Not having to find a spot to keep them,being able to get your product instantly, and buying one size fit's all.. I was on board! I have never taken an art class.. I just started doodling and putting them online. My free digital stamps within 2-3 days were getting 500 downloads, so I  thought if there were that many people who liked my designs. I should start a little store.. and Stretch N' Bubbles was born.. Now you might ask yourself, how did you get the name Stretch N' Bubbles? Well my dad "poppie" gives all the grandchildren "magic names" and my son's magic name is Stretch, and yep you guessed daughters magic name is "Bubbles".. so I put them together and came up with that name.. Thanks so much to all of you for helping support my dream..HUGS

Here is Lindsey's card:

Don't you just love how Lindsey paper pieced the scarf, heart and mittens with this soft polka dotted dp. Gotta love the embossed "snowflakes."


I just had to experience all the images our sponsor generously offered us. My fave is the penguin though. I absolutely felt like a kid playing with these , didn't even see the time go by.

I love the pretty green Juelmarie chose, the sparkling snow all around the snowman and the little border "snow" too. 

I love the paper Jenni used here. The giant snowflake, the rouned sentiment and the special attention in texture she gave to each birdie. 

I love that all this image. Donna added a fabulous silver frame complimented by a pretty silver ribbon and bow. Don't you just love the snowflakes. All the elements are here. Sure didn't miss this super background design paper.

The crinkled silver border caught my eye right away, along with the sparkly star. Deena tilted her panels and that always makes me smile. She even added silver mist to the background.

I love how she paper pieced this cute penguin, giving it the whimsical trademark I know and love about Claire. Check out the sparkly snow!

How sweet is this little penguin posing proudly in front of his giant, sparkly and beautiful snowball. Love Amy's style, check out the big SNOWflake too!

Please add keyword CCCW142 if you upload to online galleries! Thanks!
