Game #43 Star Scene



Welcome to game #43
STARRY NIGHT


Visit our winners from last week- for Paste & Stencil, next Sunday July 12th.


Did you see some interesting night skies recently? 
Maybe fireworks or a bright 
starry sky away from the city?
This week create a scene with some stars!




We are brief today with this little post. A good number of the design team is 
on vacation or traveling during this game. I've been away from home several days now.
We are running somewhat on auto drive.
Instead on closing for a month, the games will go on, winners will be chosen, 
but DT commentary will be spotty.
Ya know...island time lifestyle.

We love you all and encourage you to create a dreamy starry creation.
Our inspiration for Starry Night comes from design team and original member-
Yea!- Linda!























 We always ask you to step out of your normal 
routine and try something new 
and hot in card making.

 So, Lets Play!  Add your link up below

#HaveYouSeenL4C..... LOOKING 4 CHALLENGES









Have you had the opportunity to visit with Pirate Cat at 

Looking 4 Challenges is a challenge listing site, meant to give you the occasional giggle as you cruise through the daily challenges by looking at game images.

Watch out! Some challenge blogs don't use an inspiration image.....so I make them up as I go! This is where you may 
get a laugh or two. If you see an asterisk * in the game title- 
I made it up.

L4C is handy, easy to use and the information is usually available earlier in the the day than the full report challenge lists. It's a fast tool to locate a place to play. Like a bulletin. 

Mainstay challenge lists will always carry far more information, winners, dates, rules, dt calls, linky parties, and so forth. 
They are the big league newspapers. Use them all! Play and have fun. 

While you are playing with paper- go see what Looking 4 Challenges has to share. And if you have a challenge blog you'd like listed, please leave the address in comments at L4C. 

(there is a TAB for comments at L4C. Or click HERE )

Happy crafting, Victoria aka Pirate Cat L4C

Have fun while making a mess.

Visit our winners from last week- for Woodland Animals, next Sunday June 28th


The kids are outta school, happily destroying the house. 
I hope you're making fun fruit pops for the Summer heat. And, isn't it fair to 
have a moment to create something 
messy that turns out cool?

Please join us with your paste & stencils. Or just paste. Or just stencil,

This week we are honored to share with you a Guest Designer-
Shona Chambers

Shona is a fabulous card designer. You can easily see her work at card challenges everywhere.
"I live in Blenheim, New Zealand. I'm the very proud mother of 2 primary school aged children 
and been married for ten years to my very forgetful husband Dave. 
I hope you enjoy your visit into my world of crafts at
Twine Around

Shona won her guest spot as a winner of AAA Cards.
Hi everyone, my name is Shona and I'm super excited to be the Guest Designer for this challenge.  I've been making cards for about 18mths and I'm totally addicted! I'm also addicted to Peanut M&M's and Peanut chocolate. I only sleep for a few hours a night, so I'm quite often making cards at 3am. I love 
horror movies and watch them while making cards. I also belly dance when I have 
the time. Hope you get some inspiration from my card 
and can't wait to see you in the Gallery!!
 
And today she shares this wonderful card to kick off the game...
