Unique Crafters Challenge #7 ~ Anything Goes


Wow! It's hard to believe that we're already going into the eighth month at Unique Crafters! I remember their first month. I made a stacked set of wedding boxes that formed a wedding cake and entered it in Lollipop Crafts Challenge Blog. While perusing through the other entries (yeah, I do look at the other entries), I found Carol and her blog, CMDesign, and noticed that she entered her beautiful card in Unique Crafters Challenge #1. I'd never heard of this challenge blog, so I clicked on the link and, WOW! I was so impressed! This was their first challenge and they were awesome! The whole blog blew me away! I liked their ideas and where they wanted to go with this brand new challenge blog. Needless to say, I entered. I was just so excited to find such a fab blog. I had no idea I would win! But, I DID! I won a BIG prize (and I'm still having so much fun with all the goodies!).
I continued to enter every month. There wasn't one challenge that I missed.
The beginning of May brought the opportunity for me to be a Guest Designer! Oh happy day! After that I got to stay on full time and the rest is history! Every month I get to include my creations with some of the best crafters on the planet! It's such an honor. Thanks to everyone at Unique Crafters Challenge Blog for allowing me to be a part of this wonderful blog!
And, it just keeps getting better. We have some changes in the works; new categories, lots of fabulous prizes, contests liked you've never seen! I can't wait. This month we're going all out and you won't want to miss it!

I just got a new Cricut cartridge, "Over the Hill" and want to share with you the first "little pretty" I made using it. I cut it from pearl cardstock, coated it with Paper Glaze, and added just a bit of sparkle glitter. The Paper Glaze helped give it more body and was an easy way to apply the glitter.
I hope you like it. I had so much fun making it. Now, enter your fab creations and check out what amazing crafts all my DT buddies created for your inspiration!
