Twelve Digi prizes so far; will be given with current sponsors.  Some of these could go to followers in US; depending on what names are drawn on Oct. 1, 2014.

I may add more items, depending on number of entries.  I usually give 12 prizes plus 12 digis; but I might make it 13; if I have enough entries.  Good luck to everyone on the drawings! 

I am not allowed to ship CTMH products outside the US; but I have free Digi stamps to be given to any name I draw that is outside the US.  Please place a 1 behind your name when you register if you live outside US.  This will make it easier when I do the drawings to know who gets Digi Stamps and who gets CTMH products.  Thanks for your understanding. 

I have 7 fabulous sponsors so far; that have generously donated Digi stamps or gift certificates; so I can share the love with all my followers and not just the US.  I am very grateful for their generosity. I am hoping to add more; as I hear back from them.  Be sure to check out their stores and blogs for a wonderful selection of Digis.  Thanks so much sponsors for your wonderful support.

Birthday Card Using The Paper Shelter "Si Belle" and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge



Hello fellow crafters.  I hope everyone is doing well; despite some areas having a drastic change in weather.  We have been having extremely hot weather of 107 and 110; while people in some areas have had snow already.  

The Squirrel and The Fox are celebrating their third birthday; but sadly; this is our last challenge for right now.  Linda has decided to close the blog challenge and take a much needed break.  I hope you will play in our last challenge.  It has been a pleasure working with these wonderful ladies.  I will also miss working with all the fabulous sponsors we have had the joy of using their creative digital images.

Our sponsor for this last challenge is The Paper Shelter.  I chose The Paper Shelter Si Belle as my image for this last challenge. Isn't she beautiful and she is in Paris!  Be sure to check out their wonderful digital images.  Each set comes with both individual black and white images; as well as colored ones and those with the background scene.  Mine is the complete colored image with the background paper included.  All you have to do is add any finishing touches and you are done!  It is a very easy card to create with; no matter how you decide to make it.
