A FFF and a Crafty Critter Announcement!

Friday, January 8, 2010

Good Morning!

If you got an email from Jess, TGF's DT Coordinator, asking if it would be ok to call you, what would your reaction be? Excited? Worried? Freaked out?? Or all of the above? I was definitely the latter when I got that email, but thankfully she was calling with fabulous news! She asked if I was interested in coming back to TGF team as a guest designer for the BRAND NEW Crafty Critters Crew!! Interested?! Heck yes! *big cheesy grin* So for the next two months expect to see a lot more of Marina's critters on my blog! I really love coloring them in since the watercoloring technique is so suited to their style.


This week's challenge comes from our beloved new Farmer Mary Giles! Mary challenges us this week to use Glitter....and Glue in your project. Could be loose glitter, Stickles, whatever, just make it sticky and sparkly....and you're there!

I used a couple of types of glitter on this card. Since this Snowball Fight digi image had snow in it, I added some loose glitter to the snow with a Quickie glue pen. Then I sprayed the whole card with some pearl glimmer mist. The snowflake was punched from some glitter paper. The layout was last week's Cute Card Thursday challenge (#93) and this week's challenge (#94) was to use something new, so I broke the seal on some PTI Holiday Mix buttons that was given to me for Christmas by a dear friend. :)

The FFF rules are as follows:

1. Upload a card or project using any TGF stamp to TGF Galleria>Contests/Challenges>FFF>Marys Glitter and Glue. All cards qualifying for prize must be uploaded by Wednesday, January 13th, 2010.
2. You MUST use a TGF image to qualify for this contest. Any TGF image (digi or rubber ) will do!

The winner will be announced next Friday and one lucky stamper will win their choice of SWEET MESSAGE or OUTDOORSY by Marina Neira! Whoo hoo! Want some inspiration? Check out what the other girls on the Critter Crew have created:


And check out what the Farmers got glitzy with this week, too!:

Thank so much for stopping by today and celebrating with me! :) I'm really looking forward to playing with TGF's critters over the next couple of months! Have a great weekend!

This news comes as no surprise really since you are THE finest artist there ever was. I adore Marina's images so you best be doing your work in duplicate because you KNOW I'm gonna be knockin' (begging). With heartfelt congratulations. Gabriela

Congratulations, Sandra! I do so love Marina's critters, and I have several of them, but I have to admit that I struggle with them. The shaded areas on the image make it hard for me to add my own shading. KWIM?? Yours are always so beautiful!! I can't wait to see all your crafty critters scampering about!! Warmest congratulations to you my friend!!

Love ya,
Lorie
