Mistletoe Tester ~

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Hello out there!!.....When I hit "delete blog" back in October I hesitated until it told me I had 90 days to change my mind.  Don't you wish all things in life had an undelete key?...well I sure do!   So it's been awhile and yes I've had some fun creating, didn't accomplish everything I hoped to by now, but I guess I missed doing this more than I thought I would.  So here I am back with a bunch of Christmas and Holiday creations for you to hopefully be inspired by.  I just love this image from Bugaboo!

Happy Sweet Sketch Wednesday 177!

This week's sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps, and I just adore them!  This image is one from the Girlz line called Shop, of course right?!

The Grand Prize winner this week will receive 7 digi stamps that value $!!  You don't want to miss out on the chance to win that now do you?

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps:
 As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

This week's Challenge at Digi Haven is Halloween!!  As soon as I found this freebie I knew I had to have him!  He is from Pink Cat Studio, and be sure to check out all of the other great digitals they have to offer there too.  They also sell rubber stamps too!

We'd love to see what you create with a free digital image that reminds you of Halloween that is still available as a download.

Happy Friday and welcome to Post #1 of the day!  If you are looking for the Digi Haven Challenge see above.

The current Challenge theme at Broken Box Stock is Recipes!  I decided to make a recipe holder because I was inspired by this caramel apple, so perfect for Fall. I actually used glossy accents on it to look like it was in the plastic wrapper too!

If you haven't checked out the fantastic offer happening right now you should....if you join the Digi-Stamp Club you can receive a new image every week for one whole year for the incredible cost of $9.99.  That's 52 images delivered right to your inbox every week and that is something you do not want to miss out on!!!

You do NOT need to use one of the Broken Box Stock images to join in on the challenge, but we sure love it when you do, and also be sure to take a look around the shop because there are lots of fun Fall, Halloween, and Holiday images to choose from!

You have 2 weeks to join us, so this challenge will end on Thursday, November 1st. The Grand Prize winner will receive some of these adorably cute digitals of their own, so be sure to join in on the fun!
