Challenge #174 How Charming!

How charming to see you all again! Welcome to this week's new challenge...CHARMS!

Use a charm somewhere on your projects! 

This week I am sponsoring our challenge with 3 digi IMAGES of the winner's choice from
 A CREATIVE NEED. (5 images if you've used one of mine on your winning creation)

30% OFF ALL IMAGES THIS WEEK!! Use code NEWDISCOUNT at checkout.

A Creative Need Digital Images began with a need to express my passion for art in a new way! 
I have been an artist and paper crafter for many years, and have enjoyed many styles of both rubber and digtial stamps, but it was my practical side that led me to using digital images more often in my own creations. I simply love that they can be resized, flipped and printed so easily and they take up no space in my crafting room! I have merged my love of drawing with my need for images by digitizing my
own unique sketches. My drawing style is influenced by everyday moments and natural beauty, with the occasional flare for whimsy! 
I am happy to be on this creative journey; sharing my art as quality digital stamp images with this creative community!

I am pleased and proud to be sponsoring this challenge! Thank you to the design team for their wonderful creations, and best of luck to all the participants!

Sweet card for baby girl.

Challenge #173 Wedding or Anniversary

Welcome back to Crafty Creations Challenges! It's Lindsey hosting today, and this week, we are asking to see your wedding or anniversary-related paper-crafted creations. Our sponsor this week is Digital Paper Craft.

From owner Siobhan: 
I have always loved to draw. When I was introduced to the Internet, I found a whole new way to draw – with art programs! This opened up a completely new world for me. In 2000, I started up my pixel site, “Lillyskites”. From there I moved on to designing web sets and dolls, and from there more and more people requested scrapbooking graphics – so here I am! I love creating children graphics, and my style is mainly whimsy and prim. No matter how hard I try to go another way, it usually always ends up as one of these! I now have my new website,

Our winning entry this week will receive a $12 credit to the Digital Paper Craft store. Siobhan also provided a number of her images for our design team to work with this week. Here is what we've come up with for your inspiration: 

Donelda is letting the image take centre stage on this terrific cut-front card. 

Lindsey (that's me!) took two of Siobhan's images to make patterned paper for a card suitable for a wedding or anniversary greeting.

Jaime has added the sentiment right to the image for this anniversary card.

Juelmarie has used the Out of the box technique and some fussy cutting with the fabulous images from Digital Paper Craft!

Now it's your turn! Link up your wedding or anniversary card or other paper-crafted creation below for your chance to win! And come back a little later today to find out last week's winner of three Fresh Brewed Designs images.
