Crazy4Challenges and Speedy's Friends Want You to Play

Crazy4Challenges
(Celebrating the start of a new year of challenges)
C4C53
Hostess - Joycelyn
Challenge -- Create something celebrating READING!
I have owned this MFT Flopsy stamp forevah, but it was a virgin stamp until now.....Isn't it just the cutest!?  I LOVE to read....have always loved to read.......One of my memories from childhood was that I had to share a room with my sister who is 10 years younger than I and therefore had an earlier bedtime.....so sharing a room cut into my bedtime reading time.  Well....one night I decided (stupidly...I might add) to take the wall lamp down and put it under the covers so I could read under the covers.........SO......(are you seeing where this is heading).....hot lamp, soft blanket fibers, heat, burn......hole in sheet, blanket and singed hole in mattress........lol!!!!!

Now please join with us and make a card, bookmark, or any project about reading.  AND...be sure to visit the Crazy4Challenges Blog to see the work of the rest of this fabulous team and to get info on playing with us.


Speedy's Friends Challenge #19
Hostess - Geri
Challenge - 5 of something (layers, colors, brads, buttons, etc.)
I created this spooky/fun scene with a soon to be released set called Broom Rides by the Speedy the Cat Designer Collection available from Mark's Finest Papers.  I met the challenge requirement with my brads and I also had five objects in my scene....and...if you count one faux layer, I have five layers as well as five colors on my card.

Now please be sure to visit the Speedy's Friends Blog so you can see the work of the rest of the team AND so you can get the details on how to play with us.  Can't wait to see what you create!!!
