Extra Styles


My crafting resolutions:
1. To create more than 50% of my projects with either recycled materials or scrap left over materials to cut waste and excessive earth fillers.
2. Teach paper crafting classes and share the Joy.
3.Custom Design Products I love to use and share.
4. Learn everyday what it takes to be patient, understanding, tolerant and giving.

Hi ya! He says!

Good morning to you all!  Well today is Tuesday, well I guess you might already know that, however,  This Tuesday is the first time I get to share with all of you my debut Teddy Bo Design Team Card!  I know, I know, no way did she just fulfill 1 of her top goals she set out to create internal perpetual happiness!  Oh Yeah!

My goal was to find three stamp artists that I love to create with, some how earn or deserve to get on and stay on their design teams, learn, share and live happily ever after!  Well, Teddy Bo, from the second I saw my first, has been one of those teams and today I can announce that I have made it my third greatly desired and attained DT!  So excited! (pinch)  Yep, it's real!  There is a challenge starting today and we want you to share:

Your Favorite Color

Challenges entered:
Anything Goes ~ Die Cuts or punches
Karens Doodles ~ Favorite Animal
Papertake weekly ~ Anything Goes
Sweet Stamps ~ Anything Goes
Fab n Funky ~Die Cuts & punches
Little Darling Challenge ~ Fall colors and leaves
My Mum's Craft Shop ~ All creatures great and small

Below are 7 of the newest creations available today at the sight and there are loads of other images as well, like the cute little giraffe and the fabulous elephant too!

So, for the next 2 weeks, over at the Teddy Bo Challenge, grab your favorite furry little friend and do it up in your favorite color and share it with me and the rest of the DT's.  We all adore visiting your blogs and leaving a hug or two! 

Now on to the details of my little lovely fur ball!  My hubby and teenage son, who's birthday is 10-8 (ooh only 4 days!)  are both in karate and love it.  So I chose to surround him with my favorite colors rich reds and oranges and because of the position he is in, it reminds me of a perfect photo op, so I added some film strip, and the karate (looking) weapon and put it all together with some terrific fall leaves and a red belt.  Actually Hubby tied the red ribbon on my project from behind the card just like he puts his karate belt on 4 nights a week!  It was kinda funny to watch, but he did a bang up job by comparison to what mine looked like.  hehe!
