HIMCR #134--For a loved one

Challenge 134.  It's a good time to make something for a loved one.  Valentines day, birthday, have a great day...Just pick an occasion and craft for it!

This week our challenge sponsor is Template Dreams.  They have provided a great prize of $5.00 which would get you so much in their store.  Seriously.  It would be at least 2 complete sets.  It's quite the deal!

I'm not sure who this card is going to be for.  There are tons of guys in our family that will be having birthdays soon.  This would be a perfect guy card.  The inside will say "Have a 'ring-a-ding-ding' birthday!" because you know, the fox says "ring-a-ding-ding" among many other things!  The banner and green and brown piece are from the "what does a fox say kit."

Now, head over to Hiding in My Craft Room and enter!

My youngest nephew turned 5 last week.  I have 3 small nieces in Wisconsin and Ohio, but my last nephew turned 5.  It's hard to believe it!  He's in to ninja turtles and Spider-Man.  Since I don't draw and I don't have a cricut cartridge that will to ninja turtles or action heroes, he got a dinosaur card!

At 5 years old, he was less than impressed.  Lol!  I love this corrugated paper from paper temptress!

More Paper Temptress

It's time for another Paper Temptress card!  Since I promised you the azalea metallic, we'll do that one today.

All of the paper is from Paper Temptress. I used a white flower and gun metal Maya Mist.  Now, scroll down and find Saturday's post for links to Hiding in My Craft Room and Paper Temptress since the blogger app doesn't let me post links!

HIMCR 133--Clean and Simple

Yay!  It's my specialty.  I hate my creations to be cluttered.  I play around with that style every once in awhile, as you can look back in my posts and see.  However, my favorites are the ones where one thing takes center stage.

This week, our sponsor is Paper Temptress.  She has provided a 25.00 gift card for one lucky winner.  Oh my goodness.  They have beautiful paper!  Our wonderful design team was given paper and we got to choose our own.  When I got them in the mail, my instant favorites were the Azalea Metallic (you'll see this later in the week!), Graphite Must Touch (to die for! I'll be ordering reams of this!), and Grey Crepe (again...reams of this!).

I used the Grey Crepe, Graphite Touch, and Pearl Glimmer.  I used the Graphite for the love tag and sanded it down.  LOVE IT!  I also used my embossing folders for the background and love tag.  

Now, head on over to Hiding in My Craft Room and enter a clean and simple creation!

HIMCR #132--Super Scraps Saturday

Time to dig out your scraps!  It's the second Saturday of January and it's time to use them up.  This week's sponsor is Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  They have provided a prize of a $6.00 gift certificate for a lucky winner!  They also provided the HIMCR design team with images to use for our challenge.

Isn't this adorable!  See the little girl holding the "love" valentine?  That's an image that was provided by Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I had these little cards left from a piece of Echo Park paper from awhile back.  I took an extra card, used a knife to cut out the middle, and pasted my little girl behind it.  Didn't it turn out adorable?!  These photos are all from Anna's first year package by Julie, from New Edge Studio.  She does such a fantastic job!

Now, head over to them main blog and add your scrappy creation for a chance to win!
