Greeting Farm's Customer Challenge

Hey friends and neighbors! I just wanted to let you know about the very FIRST Greeting Farm Customer Challenge event, and I was fortunate enough to be the very first hostess for this challenge! Woohoo! I feel so blessed and honored!

Our very first challenge was MOVIE NIGHT! We had an absolute blast talking about all the wonderful movies that we love. Not just the new stuff, either. Not just the outrageously popular ones, too. We went way back in time, and out to the edges of the future. It was fantastic fun just getting to sit and chat, and talk about all the WONDERFUL images the Greeting Farm has that can be used to make movie-themed cards and projects.

This first card uses my trusty Best Mates set together with Tim Holtz Idea-ology Kraft Resist Paper map. I used the big star stamp in the set to clear emboss over the map so I could add some distress inks to it. Love that effect! Totally matched up with my ideas of Pirates of the Caribbean!

Then I thought back on some of the older movies that I have loved, and another stamp that's a little older too. I love Izzy (Twinkle Tots), and I colored her like more Victorian-era beach attire.

Yes, the movie I'm representing here is Beaches. That movie tore me up, and is probably single-handedly responsible for turning me away from chick-flicks. I avoid those movies like the plague. But this card? Yeah, I could watch this card forever!

Got a movie in your head now? Good! Go grab your Greeting Farm images (or buy a digi!) and get to creating. You have until Monday, Nov 14th at 9 p.m. Central (US) time. You can combine this challenge with VSN (Virtual Stamp Night), so go rock it out! Details for this challenge can be found by CLICKING HERE. There are two full clear stamp sets up for grabs! What are you waiting for?

Halloween Wristers

Lately, I have been drawn back to an old love, crocheting. I made these wristers in one day. Yep, both gloves, one day. I love projects that go like that. It makes you feel so accomplished.

I used a free pattern Easy Crochet Wristers from Coats & Clark. It takes some careful counting but it was an easy pattern to follow, even for my rusty crochet memory.

Yesterday was Hallowe'en, so you know I just had to carve some pumpkins! Here's the witch:

And of course I have to have a spider (because I just love those creatures, and they are sooooo Hallowe'enie)!

Today marks the beginning of National Novel Writing Month (nanowrimo) and National Non-stop Journaling Month (nanojoumo) - I hope you will be participating. If you do, stop in and leave me a link so I can check out what you're doing. Alrighty - I'm off to write and journal and do laundry and all kinds of other stuff.

Welcome to the Bunny Nest! I host rescued animals in a small in-home setting. Currently, I host 3 bunnies and 2 kitties. These animals will be socialized and housed for the entirety of their lives in my home. They inspire my crafts, and I use any proceeds to pay for their needs. Thanks for visiting!
