3D objects Challenge#14

That's right this week, I'd like you to make a 3D object (preferably out of paper/cardstock) there are lots of free patterns out there (check SplitCoastStampers)

I made this one for my bosses daughter, Katie... she's fun to make stuff for (I get to use flowers!)

You have until Jan. 15 at noon CST to link your creation up

Alter It!

my youngest son is such a sweetie, he wanted to spend all the chore money he's been saving up to buy a 4-wheeler for himself instead on Christmas Gifts for people in our family! I couldn't believe it; I am SO very proud of him. But as we started shopping he realized just how far $154 will go, so it was Mom to the rescue... we'd do these glass blocks someone at Crop Chocolate turned me onto. Here's our start:
Da Block:

Glass Etching Cream (put it on thick & leave it on a loooong time):
After etching:
My boys putting on the tiles:

We decided to do mosaic tiles on the edges of the blocks:

Yep, we're making 4 for his 4 sets of grandparents!

For this challenge, you DO NOT have to make these blocks! ANY altered art project that you are currently making (perhaps a Christmas gift?) will work just fine. Happy Crafting!

One more day....

until it closes for some THICKERS! Yes, that's right... the prize package for this round of challenges is an assortment of Thickers in different shapes & styles... you know you want them!

Oh and btw, the wreath does NOT have to be from that pattern I posted, pretty much just any wreath you make for this challenge will work (I'm easy that way)

Wreath it Up!


and I made the bells out of silver glitter paper from Making Memories, made them two-faced in case they get flipped over both sides are pretty :-) I went crazy with the spritzes and there are some "puddles" but there's nothing I can really do about that.

My wreath justs got BIG and I mean REALLY BIG! Here's the TUTORIAL I used and here are a few of my steps I took. All I can say is, I'm not good at rolling these things at all, lol
Added a bit of Tattered Angels & Smooch Spritz
a center layer yet not a center.... wet glue!
I hope to be finished 100% tomorrow night & will post an update for you

Challenge #11 Snowpeople

This week's challenge I didn't get finished coloring last night so I will have to post tonight, I'm so sorry I keep getting behind. But I want you to color/paper piece/stamp a Snowperson and my recommendation is Sypder's Snowman which you can get free this week

UPDATED: Sypder has generously said that she will give each player a freebie just for using her digi in this week's game! How cool is she? So make sure you leave me your email addy in your comment after you've linked up to receive this special gift from her!

Excuse: Monday night my 9yo son's Guinea Pig, Minos, died after being taken to the vet & on meds. So I convinced dh that ds needs a cat (ds wanted a cat so it worked out well), last night we went to the Animal Shelter to see what was available and, of course, he fell in love with a little girl tuxedo kitty named Checkers and we put in an application to adpot her. I'll find out today if we're approved or not. Here they are:
As soon as I picked her up to hand her to Ike, she started purring - just what he needs
