Challenge #67

Welcome to challenge #67 here at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog.

Thank you to everyone that played along with us for our "Give Thanks" Challenge #66. We had some AMAZING entries!! Please go to the post below to see who Mr. Random has chosen as our Featured Artist!!

As you know, during the last challenge we held a DT call. Please check back after the Thanksgiving Holiday to see who our new Team Member will be!!

So, now on to the new Challenge. Did you know that November 23rd is National Tie One On Day?? When I saw this, I thought it would make for a cute theme.
Here is a little about what "Tie One On" Day entails...

On the day before Thanksgiving, November 23rd this year, pause in the preparation of your own meal, wrap a loaf of bread or other baked good in an apron, tuck a prayer or note of encouragement in the pocket, and tie one on…an apron, of course! and deliver the wrapped bundle to someone without your bounty… a neighbor, friend or family member in need of physical or spiritual sustenance, a bit of recognition or just a kind word.

National Tie One On Day™ is a win-win, for the participant and the receiver. By embracing National Tie One On Day™, you will make someone else’s day brighter.

So, for this Challenge, we are asking you to "TIE ONE ON". You can enter whatever you like, just so long as you "TIE" something on it!! So, what are you waiting for, let's get craftin'!!

We can't wait to see the AMAZING projects that you wonderful crafter's create!

This week... for our "TIE ONE ON" Challenge our sponsor is...

That's right, one lucky random person will win 5 images of their choice from the Stretch n' Bubbles shop!!

And here's a little info about Stretch n' Bubbles...

Stretch N Bubbles Digital Stamps

I really started “Scrapbooking/Card making” in 1996 when my dear friend Lisa Bearnson introduced to her new magazine Creating Keepsakes.. after that I was HOOKED!.. I do both scrapbooking and card making.. I have been published in many magazines, worked for Creating Keepsakes as a designer for products sold on QVC, and won many contests. I am the owner of Do You Stack Up?! Challenge blog, Free Digital Stamps blog, & Stretch N' Bubbles Digital Stamps blog/store. I quickly fell in love with the idea of digital stamps. Not having to find a spot to keep them,being able to get your product instantly, and buying one size fit's all.. I was on board! I have never taken an art class.. I just started doodling and putting them online. My free digital stamps within 2-3 days were getting 500 downloads, so I thought if there were that many people who liked my designs. I should start a little store.. and Stretch N' Bubbles was born.. Now you might ask yourself, how did you get the name Stretch N' Bubbles? Well my dad "poppie" gives all the grandchildren "magic names" and my son's magic name is Stretch, and yep you guessed daughters magic name is "Bubbles".. so I put them together and came up with that name.. Thanks so much to all of you for helping support my dream..HUGS
