Help My Friend Patti

Hi Ya'll!

My friend Patti (Scrapunzel) is hoping to get a few new followers to her totally awesome crafty blog!

She wants to share her creativity with you and is willing to give you a gift for following!!

She is having a "100th Post" Blog Candy Giveaway at her blog!

Won't you please join me and follow her (by email) and help her get to the magic 40- followers number?
She has a Wordpress Blog, so you have to click the "Follow by Email" link in her sidebar
(Wordpress doesn't have a "Followers" gadget like the one we use for Blogger)...
but it only takes a second and it's worth the time, because she sure does post some fantastic projects!!

She's offering the lucky candy winner their choice of {Ippity} stamp from her favorite {Ippity Chick} Aletha!

The Game ATC Challenge

This week at The Game Challenge Blog, I was invited to be a Guest Designer! 

The team was sent a package of goodies from ARTChix Studios to use for our samples.

The theme of the new challenge is:

Remember, all the challenges at "The Game" are based on 
popular games... you may know this game as
"Red Light, Green Light".
I know I played that one on the playground when I was little!!

So, for the challenge, we were to use the colors of a traffic light: red, amber and green
and make an ATC using the products from our Sponsor!

I have NEVER made an ATC before and I have to say,
it really was a lot of fun!

The collage sheets that we received in our Sponsor package were fantastic.
As I was cutting out pieces and putting things together, 
I found myself giggling out loud a few times.
You'll see why in a minute!

Here are my first ever ATC's:

Here are close ups of each one:

This one made me giggle, when I cut out the green wings
from another picture in the collage
and just plopped it on top of that ladies' head!
I don't know, somehow, it just seemed to fit! LOL!! (-:

I think this one is my favorite.
But I had fun making all three!

When I made this rolled rose,
I kept thinking I must be out of my mind!
This is the tiniest rolled rose I've ever made!
It started as a 1" circle punch, if that gives you an idea
just how little it is!

Thank you to my friend Susan Guzy, 
who sent the collage sheets and wooden bits
for these ATC's.
And in the package, she included bonus amber-colored cardstock
and all the little German scraps that edge each of the cards.

I appreciate the opportunity to be a Guest on the Team
and had a lot of fun working on this challenge project!

I hope LOTS of people will join us over at The Game
and show off their red, amber and green ATC's!!
