Guest Designer at Craft and Smash

Hello, everyone!  I am delighted to tell you that I am a Guest Designer at Craft and Smash this month!  I won a challenge over there in September and was invited to come back to be Guest Designer for November.  How awesome is that!  If you are not familiar with Craft and Smash, why not head over and become a follower like I did!  Our theme for November is Autumn, and you can create a card, smash journal page, altered item, tag, or ATC.  I made a center-step card, full of Autumn goodness!


I don't often make step cards because I find them a bit tricky, but I wanted to do something different for my GD spot.  I used an adorable Elisabeth Bell stamped image (received in a RAK, thank you!) and coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils. No digis used today!


I added lots of fun die cuts that I made from leftover snippets of cardstock:  leaves from Impression Obsession; cat from Poppy Stamps; tree, ivy leaves, and double-edge border from Cheery Lynn; doily from Spellbinders Moroccan Accents; bird from Marianne Design; and grass from Lawn Fawn. The patterned paper is from Momenta.


The blue flower is from a very kind and generous bloggy friend who sent me a lovely RAK (random act of kindness).  I will keep her name anonymous in case she wants to remain so. I have received a couple of RAKs lately and I haven't been able to bring myself to use any of these goodies yet (until today)!  I love everything I received - but I enjoy looking at the goodies so much that it is very hard to use them.  But now that I've used something from a RAK, hopefully I will be able to continue and use some of my other new crafty RAK goodies.    

The brown flower is from Flower Love Delice, and the larger flower is from the dollar store, as is the glittery butterfly and row of gems.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted's A Little Sentimental (I won a blog hop gift voucher in October and this set of clear stamps was one of my purchases!). Lastly I added a little heart charm from my stash. I had a lot of fun making this card!  

Thank you to Craft and Smash for having me as your Guest Designer this month!
