~MP3 Mike

What a fabulous weekend we have had so far.  Our school has hosted the 1A Boys Provincial Volleyball tournament and was excellent.  Our boys played great and finished with a bronze medal!!  The work that went into this tournament was huge and the organizing committee did an excellent job!!  Kirsten was a host for a team from Edmonton so we were there Friday night to watch their games as well as our hometown boys and then again yesterday to watch Bassano play as well.

So my post was scheduled...or so I thought and when I checked this morning it wasn't there!!

We have a fab new challenge for you over at Di's Digis this week and I hope you'll join us.  We would love to see your creations For The Kids!

I have used the super cute image called MP3 Mike from Di's shop and paired it with the fun sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 for my layout!  Our sponsor for you this week is  FRANTIC STAMPER!  

So as always, you do not have to use an image from Di's Digis but if you do, you can win 2 digis just for doing so.  Be sure to check out Di's store and I just know you will fall in love with a whole bunch of her stamps, gorgeous new Christmas stamps are out as well as new everyday images too!!

As always, this design team has done a stellar job with this challenge, so be sure to pop over to the challenge blog and see the rest of the teams cards!

~Skating Birdbrain

 I didn't get a chance to get a card done for our Sketch with a tWiSt over at From The Heart Stamps on Monday, but I do have a mid week inspiration card ot share with you today!  The tWiSt this week is to finish the inside of your card and I did do that, but I just forgot to take a pic!

I have used Faith's brand new image set called Skating Birdbrain.   Super cute papers are from Doodlebug and is called Frosty Friends.  I have added some stickles, bling buttons from CTMH and Kaiser rhinestones.  It's a super fun sketch and the tWiSt is great too, so I hope you'll play along with us!

Be sure to check out the other mid week inspiration cards here as well as enter your card with our fab sketch here!

Have a wonderful crafty week!

~Gift Stack Birdbrain

Happy Thanksgiving day to all my Canadian friends and family!  We had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration over at my parents yesterday with my family and today we are having my father in law down for supper.   I hope you have had a fantastic weekend as well!  

We are back at Monday and although I really hope I am hugging my pillow still when this goes live (I better be:-), I do have a card to share with your for our new sketch with a tWiSt challenge over at From The Heart Stamps.

 I have used the super cute new image called Gift Stack Birdbrain for my image and paired it with the fun Friend Forest papers by Doodlebug that I still had out from yesterday's card...  The sketch is anohter great one and the tWiSt this time around is to use the sponging technique.  I went with the sketch this time, but you can use the sketch and the tWiSt or just the sketch or just the tWiSt, it's up to you, but you are required to use an image from the FTHS store on your card!

Be sure to check out all the amazing DT creations over on the challenge blog:-)
Have a super Monday everyone and a great week as well!
