Time for another Chicka Challenge! Thank you so much to Victoria for playing our candy challenge last week. Her candy project is really cute. Check it when you get a chance.

This weeks challenge is in honor of Ben's birthday. Ben is Jane's son and he just loves elephants. So this weeks challenge is to make a card using a zoo animal. Any zoo animal will do, lion, tiger, bear!!! Anything! I brought out my hippo stamp by A Muse. He is just too cute with the little birdie and the sentiment, well, I thought it fit. Not sure you can tell by my photo but I put a little glitter on the birch branch. IMHO cards look better with a little sparkle. I love what Jane did this week with the elephant stamp. She makes me smile when she uses A Muse images. Hooray, Janie!!!

Don't forget to leave a post with a link to your creation.

Candy, It's all about candy!

It's Chicka Challenge time again! Good thing I have these challenges otherwise I wouldn't have any posts because my life has been so busy lately. Hopefully it will settle down soon so I can get back to posting sneak peeks for all the A Muse new releases. This month's release was super classy. Monograms was the theme. Check out their website for all the new images.

Before we get to this week's challenge, I want to thank everyone that participated last week. Thank you Tinla, Kerry, Armie, Glenda, Kristie Lee, Victoria and Monica!!! You all did a great job with your sparkly cards. Our challenge this week is to make a card or other project with some kind of candy involved. Everyone loves candy and this time of year has us all thinking about our favorites. Jane made this super cute test tube holder for me and I wanted to post it so you could all see her craftyness!!! She is such a good friend. She made me something special and even used A Muse's Boris stamp, he's my boyfriend, you know... Shhhhh, don't tell Gary! I just love her color combination and her new pinking Nestabilities set. Perfect with Boris' hair, don't you think? Now get busy and make something special for your friend or maybe for yourself with a candy theme. Don't forget to post here or at Jane's blog so we can see what you made.

Chicka time!

It's Chicka time again! This is the 7th of our Chicka Challenges. First I would like to thank everyone who played last week. Armie, Victoria and Tinla all did a fabulous job with their Halloween cards.

This weeks challenge is to make a card using Stickles or anything sparkly. You see, I am a Stickles fan and while Jane and I were on our little shopping tour we found some colors I didn't have. I know! How can you be a fan of Stickles and not have all the colors? Soooo, I bought three new ones. I thought about making a lot of different colors on my stickled leaves but am moving to a more simple style so I went with just orange. Then I wondered what is better than just Stickles and added some orange glitter. Super sparkly!!! Now, don't be shy, play along this week and post your creation here or on Jane's blog.

Chicka Challenge #6

Who can guess what the Chicka Challenge is this week? Oh, yes! My FAVORITE cards to make are Halloween! That is your challenge this week. When Jane and I went on our little outing we both looked at some Halloween paper and didn't buy it. Then we both went back after we got home and picked some up. Guess we were on the same wave length, huh? So, get out your Halloween goodness and make a card just for fun. Don't forget to post here or on Jane's blog with your creation.

I also wanted to thank everyone who played last week. Kerry, Armie and Victoria all did a great job on what I would consider a difficult challenge.
