Just My Style Going Grey with Scrap-creations Challenge

Hello and Happy Tuesday! With the feel of Spring in the air and it staying lighter for longer it makes everything seem very cheery! I think it brings out the creativity in my crafting, I seem to have too many ideas instead of being in a rut and staring at something I am working on and wondering what else it needs, KWIM? If you look at my card you can tell that , I doodled on it and I never had the guts to do it on anything else. I used these jeweled flowers that I have had for years and never could imagine them on any of my cards. Did you notice the feathers? I pulled them out of my craft box items for school, it just seemed perfect for her to strut her stuff! I had so much fun making this card.

Being Tuesday it is time for another fantastic challenge over at
This week we have one of those challenge themes that everybody loves "Anything Goes". So come on over and play with us and show us your fun, creative side! We also have a fabulous sponsor this week, Stampotique Originals.

They have sooo many wonderful rubber stamps to choose from. When I say it is almost impossible to choose just one I mean it. They have stamps for almost any style of creating. They were wonderful enough to let us pick an image and saying to create with for this challenge so we could hopefully inspire you with these wonderful stamps. So be sure to check them out you'll love them!
The ladies did a fabulous job this week on their creations and as an added surprise some of the design team from Stampotique came over to play this week and add add to the inspiration for you! Thanks for coming to play with us this week with your fantastic works.

Here are some other great challenges that fit my card

Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge-This is the fantastic sketch that I used for my card.

Alphabet Challenge-This week the challenge is S for Stripes. I turned my stripes sideways instead of vertical just for some fun!

Anything Goes Challenge-This challenge is all about "Die Cuts". I used a new Tim Holtz swirl die cut on my card!

By The Cute and Girly March Challenge-This month their challenge is all about "Springtime". I used lots of springy colors and flowers. A perfect time to shed the heavy sweaters and dress happy and bright!

Cooking It Up with Kate Challenge #52-The recipe for this week is Make something sweet and a little sassy then add some punch to it! Three great things to mix together to make something wonderful.

The Crafty Calendar March Challenge-This month their challenge is all about "Spring". I used spring flowers, colors and a perfect Spring image (hehe). This little cutie went shopping while she was down south for the winter!

Creative Friday Challenge #39-This week the challenge is "Spring Awakening" like when the birds come back from spending the winter down south. It looks like this bird is happy to be home, she dressed for the occasion in her new Spring best!

Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge #50-This week their challenge is to use "pearls" on your creations. I used pearls to make a necklace for this little birdie!

Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #63-This week their challenge is to "Make It Girlie". This cutie definitely takes "girlie" to a whole new level!

For Fun Challenge-This week they really need some warm and sunny in their part of the country so the challenge is "Spring" this week! I hope this sends "Spring" weather your way!

My Time To Craft Challenge 131-This week their challenge is to use "Jewels" on your creation. I used them on the shoes, the hat and the flowers for that perfect sparkle!

One Stitch At A time Challenge #53-This week the challenge is "Glitter and Gems" I used glittered polka dot paper and lots of jewels on the bird and the flowers!

Paper Playtime Challenge #41-How fun is this challenge this week a choice of 3 challenges, just pick one and play. I picked choice #2 Pink and Glitter. I used lots of pink on my card and the white polka dots are glittered for lots of sparkle!

Paper Romance Challenge #41-This week the challenge is all about COLOR! they want to see as many colors as possible! I used lots of Spring colors on my creation!

Scrap It With A song Challenge Week 45-This week the challenge is a battle of Bon Jovi! Hard choice but I went with the Pop Gals for my card. Have A Nice Day is about expressing yourself and living easy. I think that is my creation this week!

Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Challenge-This week their challenge is "Spring Has Sprung". I hear birds singing almost every morning now and so they make me think of the start of Spring like this cute bird!

Stampin' B's Design Team Challenge #101-This week their challenge is all about "Bling". I used a lot of bling on this card for lots of sparkle!
