Anniversary Card Using CTMH Pathfinding Paper, Cricut Art Philosophy, Cricut Artiste and Cricut Artbooking Cartridges

Digi Stamps 4 Joy Challenge 101 - Anniversary

Hi everyone reading this.  I so appreciate you stopping by my blog.  I hope you are all doing well.  My husband took his family to San Francisco on Sat; so they will be home shortly.  I am trying to get this post done before they arrive.  I am use to the quiet; not use to having people here day and night.  It is quite an adjustment; plus the issues with my smell problem, too.

I had a few days to myself; with lots of peace and quiet.  I didn't do much crafting; because I was working on drawing names for the 28 prizes I am giving away on my blog celebration; which just ended Sept. 30th.  I finished the drawings and the post completed; so now I need to notify people and ship out the CTMH and other prizes for the US winners.  I forgot how much work it is to do all of this.  LOL!  I love giving things away; so it has been fun!   Check out the winners list by clicking here; and if your name is on it; please email me at purpleglocreations (at) socal (dot) rr (dot) com to claim your prize.

It is time for the DS4J Mid-Challenge 101 Anniversary.  I chose these adorable owls; which are DS4J Owl Always Love You.  They are so adorable!  I love owls and they seem to be very popular right now.
