On a personal note, I wanted to share that this will be my last post for Crafty Creations as a Design Team leader.  I have been with Crafty Creations since it's beginning in 2009, and it is with a lump in my throat that I am saying farewell. Thanks to my wonderful team mates and all of you, I have enjoyed being a part of Crafty Creations and helping  it grow into a successful challenge blog with over 1000 followers!  I learned so much along the way and have met so many wonderful, creative people!  I will definitely miss being a part of the creative force that is behind CCC!  The team I leave behind is a fabulous group of ladies that are not only amazingly creative and inspirational, but so sweet and caring as well!  I promise to visit often!!  ~ Deena 

OUR SPONSORS for the CHALLENGE:

A CREATIVE NEED is offering the winner of the challenge 3 Digital Images of their choice

FLOPPY LATTE DESIGNS The winner will receive a $10 gift cetificate to use at the store.  If the winner also used a FLOPPYLATTE DESIGNS image they will receive a $12 gift certificate.

Hi. I'm jessica (or FLOPPY) of FLOPPY LATTE DESIGNS. I design digital stamps and papers, and also rework old woodcuts and drawings and put them into digital stamp form.. and i'm Stef (or GLITTERBABE) as i'm known in blogland. I also design digital stamps but not quite as intricately as FLOPPY does. Together we're the LATTE LADIES, or better known as FLOPPY LATTE DESIGNS. Jess is the more serious one and Stef is the clown – always trying to make people laugh. ok. So she likes the limelight. Keeps me (jess) in the background creating. Together we offer a variety of stamping and scrapbooking images and items reaching out to everyone's tastes (so we think). Do drop by FLOPPY LATTE DESIGNS and have a look around. We are sure you'll see something you like and we guarantee it'll put a smile on your face!

BLOG HOPPING is fun!! It's a great way to say thank you to the Crafty Creations Design team for another wonderful year of creativity and inspiring challenges!  I know the ladies on the team would love to hear from you and when you do leave us a comment by following the list of links below, you will end up back here.  Leave one final comment mentioning that you stopped by all the DT blogs here, and we will choose  TWO WINNERS from the comments just for blog hopping with us!

OUR SPONSORS for the BLOG HOP:

A CREATIVE NEED
The winner will receive 3 Digital Images of their choice from my SHOP

A Creative Need Digital Images began with a need to evolve my passion for crafting!
I have been an artist and paper crafter for many years, and I enjoy creating in many styles and with different materials.
It is my practical side that led me to using digital images in my own creations. I simply love that they can be so easily resized, flipped, and printed , and they take up no space in my crafting room! 
I have merged my love of drawing with my need for realistic images by digitizing my own pencil sketches.  My drawing style is influenced by simple realism, everyday moments and natural beauty.
You will find my new images every month at A Creative Need, Squigglefly and  Can You Digi It?!

I am pleased and proud to be sponsoring this challenge! Thank you to the design team for their wonderful creations, and best of luck to all the participants!

ROBYN's FETISH  
The winner will receive 2 digis of the winner’s choice.

Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More is proud to sponsor this challenge.
Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More, a division of I Did It Creations, was created and is owned by Robyn Weinrib.  
Robyn offers a wonderful variety of digital stamps and digital papers, designed to meet the needs of all digital paper crafting addicts for every occasion.

Challenge #200 Wise Words

I hope you all enjoy this week's CHALLENGE...

WISE WORDS - use a quote or saying

...here are a few Christmas quote examples you might choose from... It need not be a Christmas quote, but 'tis the season, so I thought I would include these! 

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.  ~Norman Vincent Peale

From Home to home, and heart to heart, from one place to another.
The warmth and joy of Christmas, brings us closer to each other.
Emily Matthews


It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.
W. T. Ellis


The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.
Burton Hillis


'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house 
Not a creature was stirring not even a mouse; 
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, 
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.
Clement C. Moore


At Christmas, all roads lead home.  ~Marjorie Holmes


Choose one of your own favorite quotes or maybe one from the list above, and add it to your creations this week!
