Marvelous Monday...Check out these 3 challenges!!!

 Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, we had a very relaxing weekend! We started things off with cheering on our St. Louis Cardinals in their World Series victory and I got lots of crafting done so I will have lots to share over next week!  Saturday was a beautiful day which Lucas spent whole day playing outside on his scooter and then to a friend's house for some board game fun! Today was all the last minute Halloween preparations, including creating several party goodies/games so stayed tune as I will share those later too!

Up first today is this fun challenge at The Crazy Challenge, which is sponsored this week by JLJ Designs and we have an inspiration challenge.  Check out this great photo, the possibilities are endless in your projects!

I chose to use some of the fantastic colors to inspire my project, so I grabbed some scraps on CTMH Creme Brulee, black, and this great patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket: Earth Love 6x6 deck. The image is called piggy, which I colored with copics and added a little black spica pen to eyelashes and flowers. I used the sketch at Clean & Simple and rotated it, finishing my card off is that wooden button I grabbed in $1 section at Michael's and a computer generated sentiment.  Come on over and check out rest of team's creations here!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Wee Memories- Buttons, Brads, or Bows

We are "feeling sassy" this week at Kaboodle Doodles and who better to have as a sponsor than  
Sassy Studios. I worked with the image called "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend" so of course I did a little research using google. I think I got pretty close to how Miss Marilyn looked in the movie, I added a little sparkle to her bling & shoes with some Ranger embossing powders. I found this perfect scrap of patterned paper to compliment this image and used a computer generated sentiment again!  

With it being the end of the month, that means another "Anything Goes" challenge at Lollipop Crafts.  Oh I love these challenges, because you really get to see the Lollipop girls creativity as they have free reign on their projects!  Also this means we have to bid farewell to out guest designer Linda, but you can still follow her on her blog here. You will not want to miss her project this week as it's another pretty one!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Wags 'n Whiskers- black + pearl or ribbon
