This digi stamp is from Whimsie Doodles and she is called Pencil Pixie and she is adorable!!

The sentiment is from Kaisercraft stamp set Friendship sentiments

Mix it up - Halloween

It's Saturday, and time fore this weeks challenge over at Hiding In My Craft Room. This weeks challenge is Mix it up - Halloween

Here in Australia we don't really do Halloween (weird huh!! You would think candy & chocolate mmm), 
 I wanted a Card that was Halloween themed, but so I could still use it as a birthday card too. 

I have used one of my favourite Cricut cartridges Hello Kitty Greetings, she is a go to cart!! 

Hello Kitty was cut at 4 1/4" for this card, and I added kindy glitz for some sparkle.

I have used the K Andrew Designs stamp set Of Mice & Lil Men which was just perfect for this card!!

Now it is your turn to join in the Challenge #64 Halloween at Hiding in my Craft Room. Don't forget to check and see what the rest of the DT have made too!!

My Favourite Thinks Blog Hop

The theme for this months blog hop at Getting Cricky is My Favourite Things 

If you've hopped along from Amanda  from Crick'tn Crafts then you are in the right place!! If you are just joining me from your dashboard, or reading this via email, please be sure to CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Lisa's blog (you'll want to catch up on all the FUN!!)

Each of Kristal's stamp sets benefit charity. At least $1 per stamp set goes to benefit the charity noted on the stamp set package. Kristal is donating to the following charities: Cancer Angels, Storefront Shelter for Homeless Children, Intrepid & Fallen Heroes, E. Glaser Pediatric AIDS  Foundation, Doorways Shelter for Women & Children (Domestic Violence), Wayside House for Women, Camp Good Days & Special Times, Adopt a Classroom, and Autism Research Institute. Kristal will donate $1 for every stamp set sold, retail or wholesale to the charity noted; and over time believes this will add up to some wonderful miracles for these special people. So you can feel good that each time you purchase a K Andrew Designs art stamp set, someone around the country is receiving some good help!

K Andrew's stamps are all made and assembled here in the USA, which is very important to Kristal. This ensures all product materials are safe and that jobs are being provided and maintained here in America.  You can learn even more about Kristal's stamps (and pick some up for yourself) by visiting her online store: K Andrew Designs 

For this blog hop we are using older stamp set and showing our favourite older stamp sets

 I made this chicken card for someone who just got chickens for their birthday. 

The chickens are from the Cricut cartridges Country Life & From My Kitchen as are the eggs. The clouds and fence are dies.

I have used the K Andrew Designs stamp set Owly Hoo Sentiments, even the heart is from this stamp set!!

It's Saturday, so it must be time for another challenge over at Hiding in My Craft Room!! 
This weeks challenge is Distressing or Antiquing!! or both!! 
This was quite timely for me as a few weeks ago I went to the Melbourne Paperific craft show and did a workshop while I was there with my best friend and craft buddy, I really wanted to share this layout with you and this challenge is perfect for it!!

All the papers and products are Kaisercraft the paper is the Kaisercraft Timeless paper pad. The background has been whitewashed, and every paper and butterfly are distressed using Tim Holtz distressed inks of various colours

Even the butterflies are coloured using the distress inks 

Here is a photo of the layout without the photo on it 

Here you can see the distressing even better, ripping the paper is fantastic for the distressed look!! 

It is your turn now to give Distressing or Antiquing!! or both!! a try and link it up at Hiding in My Craft Room Challenge #63

Have a Crafty Day, Cheers Jennie
