Reminder for Challenge #32!

Hello everyone!
Happy Thanksgiving!
Hope you are snug and warm this morning! And probably very busy! At our house, we love to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade-it starts in about half an hour! Anyway, we're back with a reminder for Challenge #32! Here is a card that I (Emma) made for The Crafter's Cafe Kid's Thanksgiving  Challenge.
I used this adorable little turkey from The Stamping Boutique-Isn't he adorable??

 Well, that's all for now! Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello everyone!
First, and foremost, we would like to apologize to everyone for neglecting this blog so much. With five children it gets hard to find the time and it's even harder in the summer. So, we have decided from May to the end of July, we won't be doing challenges, since it is a little difficult to get a card done and entered in time in the rush of summer activity:) But, we are back now with a brand new challenge!

Since no one entered in the last challenge, (and we completely understand about that) this month's winner will receive a Surprise Package!!!

Our theme this month is going to be Thanksgiving/Turkeys so you can choose any image, paper and design you would like! Here is a little inspiration from our 'design team!'
Anna used this adorable little turkey to create a great
turkey card or Thanksgiving!

Julie used this adorable wreath and made it into a beautiful fall
Thanksgiving card!
I (Emma) used this adorable apples image and used
Sketch #64 over at Sketches by Carly.

 You have until November 30th at 11:59 (EST) We hope to see your awesome entries!!

Hello! Wow, we have got a lot  of entries so far!!

For the full post, click here. So, if any of you would like to send Leah a card, email the La-La-Land hostesses and Mrs. Breach, (Carly's mom) at and they will give you an address to send your card to. Go to my (Emma) blog to see my post and the card that I am going to send to Leah. Hope you guys will send Leah a card and encourage your friends to send her one too! (P.S. Mrs. Breach said that Leah is a girly girl and likes pink and princesses and girl things, but for you boys out there, anything will do:)

Keep on crafting!

CCC #28- March Challenge- Use Spring-ish Colors

Hello again! We're back with the brand new challenge of the month! For the month of March, since that is usually when winter starts to pack it's bags, the challenge is to make a card or project using colors you think look springy. Yellow, light blue, grass green and any other colors you can think of! Our sponsor this month is the wonderful Dina Kowal (or Mrs. Kowal:) She is donating her adorable  Cupcake digi with cupcake background as the prize for our lucky winner! Click on the link and check out Mrs. Kowal's beautiful blog and little digi shop! And here is a card I made using the colors that remind me of spring.

Go to my blog post for a full post.

Thanks again Mrs.Kowal! And happy stamping!
