tilda and friends atc challenge

This week the challenge is the last for this season-so of course it is Christmas or New years theme.

I have made mine using Bartender Edwin-as I thought he had a cheery way about him, to bring in the New Year theme!

The papers I have used are from a paper book called: Wonderland by Cosmo Cricket. I have also added a couple of brads from my stash and the "Happy New Year" message was printed off of my computer. Thank You for looking!

I have done these two atc for trade. Just thought I would take a pic of them and show you all-what do you think?

tilda atc-"frosty nights"

Finally!! I love making these cute little atc's- this week the challenge was "frosty nights".

I have made my atc with some patterned paper from the christmas glitter stack. I have colored her with watercolour pencils-obviously something I am needing some more practice at! I have added two snowflakes with a white brad, and lots and lots of stickles to make everything look shiny and kind of adding a wet look. I would love to be considered for the GD spot-TFL!!

My Moms card from Thanksgiving

I finally got a picture of the card I had mentioned at Thanksgiving!

Squigglefly downloads!!!

I have made another card using one of the squigglefly downloads!! ( I think he would be an adorable baby card too, but I wanted him to be a christmas card-I think he's cute wearing a santa hat-what do you think?) Anyways, this is so cool-and so easy!! No stamps to store-and once you have paid for an image-you can print it unlimited times!! Don't be fooled where it says that you get 2 of 8x10's and 2 of the other size-that is simply letting you know you get the image facing left and facing right in both of those sizes right from the start----but the really cool thing is with a couple easy steps you can resize any one of those images to fit your needs!!! Here is how I did it- your email containing your downloads

2click on the download line and it will download -this brings up each download you have purchased.

3. right click on -download this image-this brings up another folder which has your 4 images. click on one of your choice and this will open the images for you in what ever picture finder you have on your computer-then print!! It is that easy!!

Now-if you want to resize your image this is how I did mine- after you get to #3 and the folder has opened giving you your 4 images, just left click on one of them and hit "copy" then go into MY PICTURES and left click to paste.

Then I went to my start button and went into microsoft works word processor-

1.clicked on insert (at the top)- on picture

3. from file

4. pictures-and scroll down and click on your image.

This is really cool, because now there are little handles and you can re-size our image to your project-and because you can print as many times as you'd like-you can mess around with it until it prints in the perfect size!!!

*******I'll let you in on something here-if you go here and sign up for the news letter you will get the awesome opportunity to get a freebie download!!!! How cool is that? and shhhh.... but I think there will soon be some new images too!! shhh...********

sorry for the long post, but I didn't want anyone to miss out on such a neat new concept cuz they were kinda afraid to try it!! And I almost forgot to tell you--you can even pay with paypal!! How simple is that!!!!

I just wanted to let you all know- #2 and #3 pif's are still up for grabbing!

Also, just a quick plug here for a company I had a great experience with recently--I had purchased a stamp set from martha stewart crafts (ek success ltd) and got it home and one of the stamps out of the set wouldn't stamp right- so I sent it to them asking them to replace the faulty one-it was the cutest gingerbread house!! ( I had sent the stamp to them as well. ) Well, GUESS WHat? They really do stand behind their products, I am very happy to say they did replace it- and very quickly I might add, as well!! (which is a good thing as I wanted to make Christmas cards with it!!) I am thrilled to know that you can still depend on quality in this company!!

I have had lots of fun participating in these. Please check to make sure the one you'd like isn't already spoken for before you accept it. I will be contacting the three winners for their addy's so I can get these out in the mail asap! ; ) (Please let me know which one you chose #1, #2 , or #3. first come basis.
