Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose!


Hello! Sharon here and I am hosting the new weekly challenge. Our challenge this week is to Recycle, Reuse or Re-Purpose. It's really not all that hard. Just Recycle, Reuse or Re-Purpose something on your card and let us know what it is. Some ideas are:  Old Greeting Cards, Ribbons, Buttons from old clothing, Tin Foil etc... 
We have a new Sponsor! Scrap 'N Dippity and one lucky winner will receive 
their choice of 3 images.



Open since November 2015, Scrap N' Dipity specializes in cute little digi's as well as cartoon dolls. My style is definitely eclectic, I like to create a bit of everything and go anywhere from cute to creepy - though my creepy is usually cute as well! My favourite things to draw are cute little animals, or dolls whether they are fairy or not, my only criteria is that they have big, pretty eyes! I started created graphics online with little pixel graphics, after over 10 years of doing that I decided I wanted to try my hand at something else. There are a few ladies from the pixel community who have crossed over to digital scrap booking and suggested I do the same. I started by transferring some of my pixel creations to digital stamps and never stopped!

And now for a little inspiration:

Sharon - Lil Snowmen
I used an old greeting card as my base.



Carole - Wind in my Hair Fairy








CraftyGirl - Lil Snowmen




Please be sure to show our sponsor a little love.

Please read the challenge rules. No back dating and you can link up your project below.
The challenge runs through July 25th.



Have fun and we cannot wait to see what you Recycle, Reuse or Re-Purpose!

July Anything Goes!

Hello Everyone
Rene here with our ever popular challenge:
ANYTHING GOES!

Yes, you can really show your creativity with our challenge!

Have fun!

We have a fabulous sponsor for our challenge:


Her images are so much fun and there are so many to choose from!


Prize - winner choice of 1 bundle
Welcome :) I'm always happy to share my story! 
Once upon a time, I had 1 big noisy child, and 2 small noisy children, (still noisy, just bigger...lol) and I was in desperate need for quiet book patterns. I couldn't find any that I LOVED, so... I drew my own! Not too successful, as they were way too complicated, but I had HUGE feedback on my art work. 
So, my happy ending began with a blog :) I started out posting free images daily, and within a week, I had over 100 followers! I was thrilled! Slowly as my art work has improved, so have my opportunities! Etsy is just another step in achieving my dream. I have become a successful illustrator! I am so blessed to have had many willing to help me on my path, and am grateful for every single person who has visited my shop, blog, and offered requests and suggestions along the way.
I LOVE this "job"!
xoxo   Nikki

Ann-Marie from Annemis

I’m 50 years young and live in the south of Sweden with my hubby and 4 teenage boys.
My blogname “Annemi” is from an aunt of mine who used to call me Annemi when I was little and she kept on calling me that her whole life so the blogname is a celebration to her.
I’ve been crafting in one way or another my entire life but I didn’t have a name on it before... lol
Nowdays I’m a color addict delux, I color almost every day of the week and I think I’ve tried almost every medium there is.  Coloring are so relaxing for me and I really enjoy it.
Hope you like my card - Have a great day
Hugs, Ann-Marie/Annemi
