Little Red Wagon #654 - With A Little Help From My Friends


Kate has a new song and a new challenge for us over at Little Red Wagon.  This week she wants to see projects that celebrate our friends.  

I went with a Tiddly Inks image called Thanks a Latte to celebrate a friend I have recently reconnected with. We had a nice cup of coffee and caught up on life.  Thank goodness for friends!

We would love to have you give our challenge a go this week.  Just head on over to Little Red Wagon and link up your creations. While you're there, be sure to check out the wonderful projects the other Girlfriends have created.

As You Like It Challenge #233 - Favorite Food


It's time for another As You Like It Challenge.  This fortnight our challenge theme is to share your favorite food.  Be sure to tell us why it's your favorite for a chance to win.

I love ice cream, all flavors, but especially lime sherbet.  Ice cream is the perfect way to cool off on a warm day and the tangy flavor of lime is an absolute treat!  This cute little Colorado Craft Company mouse sure seems to be enjoying his cone.

Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is -

We would love for you to head back to the AYLI blog to link up your creation.  While you are there, check out the prize that's up for grabs and take a look at the gorgeous creations the DT made for you to see!  

Thanks for stopping by!

I had the pleasure of using a little cutie provided by Crafty Sentiments Designs.  Her name is Lily and she was a joy to color up.  Just think of all the ways you could use her.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #653 - Make It Bloom

I have hostess duties over at Little Red Wagon this week.  I'm hoping this is a very timely challenge, I know the mainland US and even in Hawaii nei we have had plenty of April and May showers.  With all this precious ua (one of the 200 or so Hawaiian words for rain), plenty of flowers are blooming, so that is my challenge for you this week.  Quite simply I would love for you to "Make It Bloom" by using flowers on/in your creations. 

I had quite a time coming up with a card for this challenge.  I think it is because I have so many favorite floral stamp/die sets.  I made 2 cards and just wasn't happy with them.  These stamp sets arrived on Monday, so I set to coloring that evening with no real design decided.  I got up Tuesday and decided to cut the image out with a Scan N Cut which promptly went rogue on me.  I can't swear it wasn't user error, but I don't think it was.  I went to YouTube to see how to recalibrate the machine, taped up the poor little image and recut.  I don't think a non-card maker will ever notice.  Anyway the stamp sets are from Colorado Craft Company and the scalloped square, doily and circle hearts are from the Silhouette Design store.

OK, enough, yakity yak. I look forward to seeing all your lovely creations, just pop them into the link over at Little Red Wagon.  Be sure to check out the Girlfriends, I know they are going to smash this challenge!

Thanks for checking us out.

Happy Birthday Blog Hop


 Good Morning All and a Very Happy 13th Birthday to us all here at CRAFT Challenge!!

This year we are 13 years old already and still going strong. Only one team member has been present from the start, Jo.

AYLI - Favorite Sketch

We have a fun new challenge for you over at As You Like It Challenge this week.  We want to see your creation reflecting your favorite sketch and we also want to hear why it is your favorite sketch.

Our sponsor this week is -

Here is the sketch I chose to use -

My sketchy likes are all over the place and I can rarely use one without changing it a bit as in this case. I found this on Pinterest and really like it because I feel it works well with my image and it is a great place to start a card, especially if you have low mojo.

Now, itʻs over to you.  Get on out there and find a sketch you like, and donʻt forget to tell us what it is your favorite.  Hereʻs a link to the challenge blog, we hope youʻll join us!
