Good Morning, friends!  Are you ready for an amazing Sunday with the Stamptacular Team?  We have been preparing a wonderful Blog Hop for you and are so excited that you have joined us for our Bonus Fun again!

Here's how it will work.... You will visit each of the Design Team blogs in this order: Paula, Liza, Sarah, Janneke, Line, Simonne, Aud Kirsten, Piali, Jilly, Nikki, Me, Carolyn and Priscilla!  Each of us have hidden somewhere on our blog a picture of our very favorite stamp and why we love it so!  Your job is to find our post and leave a comment on this post in each of our blogs to tell us which stamp is our favorite!  You need to comment on every single team members blog to be eligible for the Grand Prize!  There will also be extra prizes along the way!  From here, you'll want to go find Carolyn's favorite stamp!  So, let's have some fun!  :)

Here's my Fall Ya'll card for this week, as well!  It's a super fun challenge and I hope you get a chance to participate!  Our prize this week is offered up by Funky Fairy Papercrafts!  To enter this weeks challenge you need to create a card or project with a fall theme using traditional fall colors.  So, have some fun!

I used a Happy Hopper image that was in my stash, some "unnamed" cardstock and some Daisy Bucket patterned paper.  I colored the image with my Copics (LOVE my Copics!)  I hope you like it, I sure had a lot of fun making this one!

Have a wonderful week, and I hope to visit your blog to see your Fall card soon!

Doodle Street Sketch

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Sunday, October 18, 2009 4 stamps of approval
I play on doodle street blinkie
I had a little free time this afternoon while Boo napped and Em played in the playroom... so I whipped up a little card!
This is for the challenge over at my good friend, Cassandra's blog - Doodle Street! If you haven't visited this challenge blog, you must go take a look! They have wonderful challenges! And the Doodle Street designs are awesome! I don't have any designs yet, but I am hoping to get some real soon!
I know that they allow any image to be used in their challenge and since I needed a birthday card for my Aunt, I chose one of my Beautiful Day Fairies from Paper Make-Up stamps. This is Birthday Lauren, isn't she the sweetest? I always love to add glitter and sparkle to my fairies, and this is no exception. I stamped her with my Brilliance ink pad and colored her in with my Sakura glitter pens and a few of my Copics. The cardstock and patterned paper is from an "unnamed source" in my stash. The sentiment is a rub-on that was floating around.
Hope you like my card... and I hope my Aunt likes it, too! :)

CGW 2009 Beach Projects

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Friday, October 16, 2009 4 stamps of approval
Hi there! CGW (Crafty Girlz Weekend) 2009 is all done... so sad! It was a blast!

I've got some time this afternoon, so I can finally upload some photos and share with you some of what we did!

I'll start with my project: This is a Tri-Fold Shutter Card with the Fan Fold Flower. Directions and Tutorials from Splitcoast Stampers. This was my sample.
And this is the one that I made during the weekend. Everyone's cards were different colors, as I took an assortment of patterned paper and cardstock to use. They were all so pretty! We also discovered that the flower could be turned into a fan, which was fun!Charlene taught us how to make these adorable bottlecap magnets! Surprising how pretty a bottlecap can be!Louise shared this cute teabag flowerpot. So easy to do, and so much fun!
Paulette brought some fun felt and felting tools and we each made these adorable purses! I think I've found a new craft - this was so much fun! Here are all of our purses:This is one that I made for Emily:And this is mine:Liz had some wheat sent over from Germany and taught us how to do wheat weaved stars. I pasted mine onto a card front.Kim taught us how to make the Handmade soaps that she had given away at her wedding in August. Her wedding soaps were blue, I chose green and the pink one was one that Mom had made for Emily.Lynda brought some styrofoam ornaments and taught us how to created a faux-quilted christmas ornament. We each got to a small and a large ornament.I know there is one project missing.... I am saving the project that Cauleen (my Mommy) brought, as it is for my Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog Design Team post this Sunday. So check back on Sunday to see it!

Here we all are! In the back: Cauleen, Charlene, Lynda, Paulette, Louise, Liz & In the front: Me and my Bestest Friend, Kim!
It was a wonderful weekend! And I can't wait for CGW 2010, we already have the beach house reserved!

Mojo Monday #107 - Mom's Entry

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Monday, October 12, 2009 27 stamps of approval
Hello again from the beach! Mom loved this weeks Mojo sketch as well and wanted to make a card of her own. Since she doesn't have a blog or online gallery, I will post it here for her and hope that the Mojo Royalty will allow her to enter the contest.

I hope you enjoy her card this week as well!

Stamptacular OCTOBER Bonus Fun!
I have gone through my collection... although it grows and grows, almost daily!... and want to tell you which stamp is my favorite. Usually my favorite stamp is the one I just got, even if I haven't used it yet... but I thought I should look for the stamp that I use most often... the one that I think is most "me", if you know what I mean..

So, I have decided that my favorite stamp is this one...:
This is Valentini, by Stamping Bella... I've used this stamp alot and here's why...

1. I love anything Martini... from the drink to the image. The shape of a martini glass is just cool, and you can put so much awesome stuff in it! And a good martini, mixed well and enjoyed with friends is the best!
2. This image is so much fun to color! I've done it in red and pink and purple.. it just lends itself to so many fun colors!
3. I love glitter, and this image just screams "glitter me!!!"
Here's just one card that I've made with this image
It's just an awesome image and if I had to choose a favorite, this would be it... although I did eye all of my cupcake stamps, too... but that's another post! LOL!
Thanks for joining us at Stamptacular for another Bonus Fun Day! Hope you're having a great time!
Have a wonderful day!

My Design Team card is on top for the day- scroll down to see my Mojo Monday entry for this week - Thanks!

Happy Sunday, everyone! I'm checking in from the beach this weekend! It's our "Crafty Girls Weekend" and we are having a BLAST!! Be sure to check back later this week to see photos of all our projects! So far we have done card-making (by Me), teabag flower pots (by Louise), Soap making (by Kim) and Needle Felting (by Paulette) More fun to come!

It's another fun week at Stamptacular! This week's challenge is to use any character on your project!

Our Design Team has come up with some beautiful ideas! Our prize for this week is from - this is an adorable set, I really wish I could enter to win it!! :)

I have chosen to use Horton, from Dr. Suess on my project, as he is one of the few character stamps that I own. I love the background paper and the sentiment... they both seemed very "Dr. Suessy" to me!

I hope that my card and the rest of the Design Team projects inspire you to create something full of character this week!
Thanks for stopping by and have a WONDERFUL week!
