Smile Challenge


Smile is contagious
A smile costs nothing, but gives much.
It enriches those who give it. It takes but a moment, 
but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.

None is so rich or mighty
that he can get along without it,
and none is so poor
that he cannot be made richer by it.

A smile creates happiness in the home,
promotes good will in business,
and is the cornerstone of friendship.

It can perk up the weary,
bring cheer to the discouraged,
sunshine to the sad,
and is nature's best antidote for trouble.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone
until it is given away.

When people are too tired to give you a smile,
give them one of yours.
No one needs a smile so much
as he who has none to give.

Congratulations! You won a Guylou's Inimitability Digistamp of your choice and a guest DT spot in January.

When Christmas is coming, I just want to sing all the Christmas jingles! Christmas songs are awesome! If you are feeling down, you just have to sing Christmas songs and soon your spirit will be lifted up.

I love making Christmas cards while listening to Christmas music. I have an iPod that contains over 9 hours of only Christmas songs and melodies. It is so inspiring to create while listening to old and new songs interpreted by different artists and in different styles. So, let's have a Christmas card challenge!

Feel free to enter any newly made Christmas cards or projects, but in order to qualify to win, you will need to use a Guylou's Inimitability digistamp. If you don’t have any GI images, you can visit Guylou's Inimitability Store or you can have a look for a freebie in her group on Crafters Digital Art Center!

The winner will be awarded a digistamp of her choice from Guylou's Inimitability Store and will also be invited to be a Guest Designer on an upcoming challenge and will get another GI digistamp to make a card or project along the DT.

Elegant Challenge

According to the free dictionary. com, the word elegance is defined as:
elegance [ˈɛlɪgəns], elegancy
n pl -gances-gancies
1. dignified grace in appearance, movement, or behaviour
2. good taste in design, style, arrangement, etc.
3. something elegant; a refinement

Oh the days when elegance was a way of life; when men dressed to the nines and the women wore long beautiful gowns and gloves. I love going to Christmas parties because I get to dress in a beautiful dress, wear fancy shoes and have my hair all done up.

So this challenge will be about elegance. We challenge you to make a card or a project with an elegant theme, whatever way you interpret this word.

Feel free to enter any newly made elegant cards or projects, but in order to qualify to win, you will need to use a Guylou's Inimitability digistamp. If you don’t have any GI images, you can visit Guylou's Inimitability Store or you can have a look for a freebie in her group on Crafters Digital Art Center!

The winner will be awarded a digistamp of her choice from Guylou's Inimitability Store, but that's not all... the winner will also be invited to be a Guest Designer on an upcoming challenge and will get another GI digistamp to make a card or project along the DT.

To inspire you, here are some cards prepared by the inimitable Guylou's Inimitability Design Team. All cards were made using "Gertrude":
