SEPTEMBER CREATIVE CHALLENGE AND A NEW SET!

Well here we are - the first day of September.  I don't know about you, but this has been the shortest summer I've ever experienced! 
Still, it calls for a Party with a capital "P", and you're invited! 


With the new month comes the new creative challenge over at Sparkle N Sprinkle. This month it is "Anything Goes with Glitter, Embossing Powder and/or Flocking". How can it be any easier? I hope you'll take the time to enter the challenge. Have a look over at the Creative Challenges blog, where you'll find everything you need to know about the challenge and some samples from the Design Team to help get those creative juices flowing!  


Here's my creation, using some awesome SNS sparkly embossing powders and glitters:




..... and if you're a Sparkle N Sprinkle fan, you'll probably be saying right now - I've not seen that stamp before! That's where THIS party begins!  

Today, Sparkle N Sprinkle is releasing this super cute little Owlette set, created by artist Becky Muir. 


For a chance to win this set, an embossing powder and a glitter, we are going to have a Mystery Designer Party! 

A commenter will be selected from one of the six participating blogs below to receive the prize.  No one knows who the Mystery Designer is, so you may wish to visit each one to increase your chances of winning!  The winner will be announced on September 3 on Facebook, the SNS blog and on our blogs.
here they are:

  1. I wanna come to your Hoot of a Party! It looks like great fun on that gorgeous fence with the beautiful patina. Do I get a party hat, too? How can the one owl sleep thru all the commotion - both noise wise and blindingly glitterful?

    Thanks for your glittery masterpiece LOL

  26. I love the jazzy colors of glitter/flocking you used on all the owls; it really sets the tone for a party. So do the colorful glittery hats and balloons. Using the googly eyes makes them specially cute and having them sitting on a glittery wrought iron fence was a stroke of genius, really unique. Serenity 44

  59. Wow!!! I thought I loved glitter but you obviously love it even more than I do. I bet this took a long time to get done, but the effect is beyond stunning. I love the strings on the balloons and of course how much fabulous detail you were able to work into your glittering.

    Best crafty wishes!
