so, we also have a new SKETCH CHALLENGE for you today! (told you we were busy!) our very own Kristy has given us a fantastic sketch to work with... FUNKY!

Adina and i both fell i love with that ribboned circle element and couldn't wait to play! i was on a crackly kick that day, and came up with this:

SO. upload your entry for this challenge by next Wednesday, November 18th at midnight EST, OR combine any or all of the challenges for the week by this Sunday, November 15th at midnight EST for your chance at ALL of the prizes!

finally..... YES i was able to play and make something for some of the other fabby challenges out there! (you'd think i wouldn't have time to play along, with all this DT stuff i've been posting!) this is a card i made for the following challenges:

PaperPlay challenge - "parlez vous"
SophistiCats challenge - wings (my butterflies!)
Stamp With Fun challenge - sketch
Stamp Something challenge - recipe (1 ribbon, 2 papers, 3 embellies)
Hope Stamps Eternal cupcake challenge - inspiration (the colours and the dots!)
Cute Card Thursday challenge - GLITTER (took new piccies and the sparkle on my flutters is MUCH better now!)
Creative Inspirations challenge - new or neglected (that would be the polka dot flowers - i've had them FOREVER and just got MORE sent to me, so thought it was time to start using them up!)
C.R.A.F.T. challenge - recipe (1 tag, 1 sentiment, 1 ribbon)

WHEW! that's a lotta challenges with one simple card! anywho, it all STARTED with Hope Stamps Eternal, and then snowballed. so, my card:

also, i'd like to direct your attention to my friend Tanisha's blog post about a negative buying experience she had... you simply CANNOT be too careful when sending out your credit or debit card information over the internet! thanks for the heads up, Tanisha! (and if you ask her, she'll tell you the name of the company, so you can steer clear of them!)
