ATC–Show me your hat!

Swap-Bot always has a bunch of great ATC swaps on the go.

This one was called, Show us your Hat.

So, here you go, here’s my hat (with a little French lesson thrown in, free!!)

Voici mon beau chapeau! (That’s French for “here’s my nice hat!”)

I created this one with one of my favourite Priscillastyles vintage images.

To add a little je-ne-sais-quoi (that’s French for “whatever”), I topped

the hat off with a couple of soft white feathers and a delicate flower.

A casually tied foulard (that’s French for “scarf’) and voila, cèst finit (that`s French for “it’s finished!”)

And now, this post est finit!! …well, almost…see my last two photos, below. LOL!

Oops! My ATC says “Swat-Bot” instead of “Swap-Bot”…duh!!!

Midnight Madness very first Monthly Challenge #135!

Welcome to the very first Midnight Madness Monthly Sketch Challenge!
(MMSC#135)

This is my take on MMSC #135-February 2012. This adorable little guy is called "Heart Balloon Puppy" and is available at the "priscillastyles" Store.

What’s different about the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge? Well, nothing, really…except that now you have a whole MONTH to work on and submit your creations!  And, you are welcome to submit up to four projects using the sketches provided as a guide.

Throughout the year, we may add some fun twists and themes. But, as always, the twists and themes are merely for inspiration and not required to play our sketch challenges.
We will continue to award the Gold Star and Remarkable awards, as well as a monthly prize.
We hope you will have fun working with our sketches and will be inspired by the fabulous Midnight Madness Design Teams Work.
Mark your calendar for the first of every month and come join our NEW Monthly Challenges.

Here is this month’s sketch. It’s your choice–make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between. And, the “twist” is to make it a Love/Valentine theme.

Enter one style or both. You are more than  welcome to enter up to 4 cards during the month of February.
Just have fun and come play with us 🙂

Introducing Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #131…and, announcing the winners of #130

Here is my take on MMSC #131

My take on MMSC#131. Once again, the lighting is great...help!!! Be sure to a have a look at all the beautiful cards created by the other MMSC Design Team members.

This is my take on this week’s Midnight Madness sketch. I took many artistic liberties with this one, so it’s somewhat off path. Also, it’s so much prettier in real life. I have a great camera, but obviously haven’t found the right lighting. I’m trying!!!
Anyway, I think you get the idea. And now, here’s the sketch. Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between.
Remember to click on the sneak peek button on the side bar for the following week’s sketch each Friday.

Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #128…and, announcing the winners of MMSC#127

 Christmas Cardinal, Bright and Cheery 

This bright and cheery cardinal is such a lovely symbol of Christmas. Perched on the bough of a snow-covered pine tree, he calls our attention to the splendor and peacefulness of nature.  This is my take on MMSC sketch #128 (see card below).

Be sure to visit Midnight Madness to view all the beautiful cards by the amazing MMSC Design Team members.
