November's Progressive Challenge with Rick. Part One, Take 2

Hi all,
WOW - What a month so far!!

I'm sure that most of you are aware that we've been having a DT call during October. Well, we had a tough time choosing from the fabulous makes that were entered, but the lucky few that were chosen are now on board. Some of those lucky ladies are going to be sharing their first projects today, some on 1st December for part 2. Others - you have to go and visit our facebook group to see what delights they have conjured up. Whilst you're there, Aletha has posted about the Facebook Art Contest - that's anything goes as well. Check it out!
The full EDT listings can be seen in the sidebar of the Sparkle and Glitter blog if you want to go visit and leave some luuurrrvvveeee.

I hope you're enjoying the crisp weather. Just right for cozying up in your craft room with a Rick St Dennis image, from either the Etsy or Zibbet shops, and get making something for our progressive challenge.
Part 1 is "Anything Goes", for part 2 you have to use a specified image, and all that enter this month will get it FREE. It will be sent out towards the end of the month. You will need to enter your projects in the linky here to qualify

I'm Lady B and below is my make for your inspiration using Rick's "Winter Friends" Digi Stamp. This entire project is digital including the colouring and the papers.  Everything was coloured and assembled in PSE8.  I love digi work, but it takes me a long time since I'm self taught.  Other than Rick's fabulous image, I used papers and elements from Kitty Designs which were purchased as a kit from oscraps.  The kit name is Christmas in my Heart.  BTW, if you ever want to dabble with digital work, Oscraps has many kits and elements for a low cost or even FREE.

Betty's 40th Birthday Blog Hop! Happy Birthday, B!

Today is Betty Roberts 40th Birthday!!!  Yes, the BIG 40 so we thought we would make Betty's Birthday as special as we possibly could!  The Awesome Rachel Sharp drew us an AMAZING image to use for Betty's Special Day!!  A whole bunch of AMAZING, SUPER TALENTED ladies have done some UNBELIEVABLE projects for you to see.  They have all been mailed out to Betty so she should get some AMAZING mail, but we thought you folks in blog land would like to see these FANTASTIC projects for yourselves.

I'm Lady B and I'm last on the hop list.  You should have arrived here from the Fabulous Blog of Leadonna.  If not, or if you found my post by accident and would like to start from the top of the hop list, head on over to the blog of the Amazingly Talented Corinne.  I will post the entire hop list at the end of this post in case anyone gets lost along the way. 

Below is my card for Betty.  I have known Betty for years through blog land and she is one of the sweetest and most generous ladies I have ever known.  Happy Birthday, Betty!  I wish you a year filled with love and laughter, top it off with good health for you and your family and sprinkle endless creativity on top of it all! Much Love, My Dear Friend!  Now...go party like a rock star!.
