Get Your Girl On

Hello there, it's me Sharon. How is everyone doing? Most of us here on the East Coast are heading into our second deep freeze of the year, the perfect kind of weather for staying indoors and playing with paper. I am going to challenge all of you this week to
Get Your Girl On!
Anything Girl, Girly Girl, Pinks, Purples, Flower Power, Bling it up!
Show us your best Girl Creations.

We have a fabulous sponsor this week, All Dressed Up Stamps and they are offering up an awesome prize. One lucky winner will have their choice of 3 Digi Stamps. 
All Dressed Up Stamps

A short bio about Wendy:
Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters, in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends. I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.
I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.
Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers .
All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping. The coordinators Marilyn and Tracy along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.
We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies .The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis.  We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the 
All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.

All Dressed Up Stamps generously gifted our design team a few of their images and below are what our creative minds have come up with:

Doris using Sweetie Pie

Sharon using Amore

This week we welcome another fabulous Guest Designer to Crafting by Designs. 
Please say hello to Sanja Grdinić and go check out her beautiful work on her blog at Kartolina

My name is Sanja and I live in a tranquille little town on the island of Krk in Croatia.
I am a proud mom of two and work as a kindergarten teacher in my hometown.
Even though I started with card making back at college, it became what it is today about three years ago. And just last year I bought my first Spectrum Noir pens, and seriously, I was like a kid in a candy shop. Then I bought some more...  I love every minute that I steal from my RL to
color and create because it makes me paceful and happy.
And the best thing of all is to give a card to someone dear and receive a smile. Priceless!

So go get Your Girl On and wow us!
