' Thankful' Challenge #149

This time of year I get to thinking about things/moments that are in the past.  I remember great big family dinners with cousins, aunts and uncles.  I remember and still crave my Auntie Francis's homemade dinner rolls.  She had to make special pans for us kids to eat right out of the oven with plenty of butter.  So this week is your chance to be 'Thankful".  It could be gatherings of family, not having to drive this year or anything you want.  So dream up something you are thankful for.  Before I show you what I came up with; lets see who our sponsor(s) are for this week.

Prize: 2 Digital Images

Prize:  2 Digital Images

Holy moly, two of my favorite sponsors this week.  If you can, go visit and leave some love.  My image this week is 3 Autumn Girls by All Dressed Up.  All of their images are crisp and clean and they import to a cutter program like SCAL4 or MTC beautifully.  I am very thankful for my great girlfriends.  We might not have gotten together for a long time, but when we do it's like we just talked yesterday.  So this is for Dolores and Carolyn.  Love you ladies.

I just love how this card came out.

Now I just have to make another card and I can send one to each of my girlfriends.  I am also thankful for all of you that come and visit each week.  It makes me feel honored. 

Be back in two weeks.  Off the top of my head I don't know what the challenge is but it's almost Christmas.  Stay Tuned!!!

Blessings, Jana

Challenge #147 Harvest Colors Crafty Gals Corner challenge

I am writing this as little munchkins are traveling the streets looking for treats.  I LOVE Halloween!  I have since I was a kid myself.  Dressing up and pretending to be someone or thing is to this day something I enjoy.  So it is NO surprise that this weeks challenge is Harvest Colors.  But as always, lets see who our fantastic sponsor(s) are for this week.

Prize:  3 Digital Images

Have you recently looked at Morgans Art World shop?  It is simply amazing.  So many beautiful images to color.  I always get lost in creating cards in my head and want to purchase everything!  So THANK YOU Morgans Art World for being our sponsor this week.

So this week I have a image called Fae 37.  It's a mandala with a faery in the center and a beautiful border of leaves and flowers.  I colored the image using Sivo Vivid Colored Pencils.  Then cut out the circle and edged with gold ink.  The background is a paper I found years ago at Tuesday Morning.  It is a ColorBok product.  Next I rounded the corners of the background paper.  I had some left over leaves and trimmed them down.  Glued each leaf down.  I used some window foam that you use to block a draft to lift up the mandala.  It's sticky on one side only so I still needed to use my ATG.  Smacked that baby down found a sparkle for a corner and that's it.  Here is the finished product!

My Harvest Color Challenge inspiration!
Thank you so much for visiting.  The Crafty Gals team will be back on November 18 with another fabulous challenge.  So Happy Halloween!  Bright blessings, Jana

Challenge # 145 Use Halloween Colors

Welcome back to the wonderful world of Rhapsody on Paper.  Home of the Crafty Belles team for Crafty Gals Corner Challenge.  I have another creative inspiration for the week.  First though, lets see who our fabulous sponsor(s) are for this challenge. 

Prize:  3 Digital Images

Make sure that you show some love to our sponsor this week.  Without sponsors, there would be no Crafty Gals Corner Challenges each week.  So thank you OddBall Art Company!!!

My image this week is Tiffany the Terrible.  I don't think she is so terrible.  She was a joy to color.  Since the challenge is use Halloween colors, I used tradition colors and more modern colors.  So here is my inspiration for this week.
