November Challenge Sponsored by The Paper Shelter

Welcome to our 32nd Challenge here at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  Please don't forget to check our rules. Thanks!

       Also, remember that we now have all our Winners and DT favorites posted in a separate post and on the "Winners" tab at the top of the blog.

     Now, our November Challenge!

 We're sponsored this month by The Paper Shelter

We have a couple of changes in our Design Team this month.  We have to say goodbye to Engelchen.  We are wishing her the absolute best in all her endeavors.

We also have two new Guest Designers joining us this month and they'll be with us through January, 2020.  First, we'd like to introduce Karen and we suggest that you take the time to visit her blog, delightfully named Misplaced Mojo.  You'll be happily rewarded and inspired by her marvelous creations. 

Then, meet Mia of CraftArtista as our second Guest Designer. Mia will begin this month, and hopefully be staying for December and January as well. Mia is a very accomplished artist with a wonderfully eclectic style, and she does just about everything crafty and artsy.

Here's a little inspiration from our team to encourage you, starting with
our Guest Designers!

with this fun creation:
Annie, please contact us at for your Beccy's Place prize details.


CarolG: #5 TammyA
Fantastic colouring and use of background pattern, and 
super reality sentiment (have you heard that before?).

NanaConnie: #192 Donna M
Donna lost her sweet fur baby, Goliath, a few months back and
this card was her tribute to the many years he shared
with her family.  I love the red, black, and white combo and
how she used a heart puzzle to show how much she misses him.

Donna: #62 Aimeslee
For this wicked-fun, Happy-Haunting, COLOR-FULL tag creation
with lots of creepy, spooky batty inspiration.
wooooo! chill bumps!

Ine: # 136 Rosina
Love the letters Noel and the little animals on this special formed card.

Lori: #183 Lisa Lynn 
I love this beautiful scene, the background is gorgeous and the kitty gazing the sky is adorable!

Lynn: #178 Scrappy Horses
This cat is just TOO much fun!  Love the expression on his face.    Be sure and check out the spider actually moves!  Spooky scary fun

Patti: #24 - Cynthia O
This was hard! 195 wonderful entries!
Cynthia had a fun card that made me smile. Loved the fun image, 
the cute family oriented sentiment, and the paper pieced scarf! 
Great job, Cynthia! 

Vicki: #47 Larissa
I fell in love with this adorable Halloween scene!  Not only because the critters are so cute, but because they're very well colored and presented on this fun star filled dark Halloween night background!  Very nicely done:

more beautiful creations

NanaConnie: #141 Maryann
A fantastic double tag with amazing
detail in the embellishments.

The minute I saw this card I fell in love with that beautiful owl!  He is just perfect and I love the design of this card too!!

This is so simple and yet so beautiful.  The inking in the background reminds me of the Northern Lights.  Love that gorgeous image too.

Chris had me laughing out loud. Seriously! 
The look on her critters face was priceless! 
Thanks for the laughs, Chris!

Vicki: #157 Andrea Norris
This sweet little guy really steals the show on this simple design!  It is colored to perfection and this card really gave me a smile:

Donna: #87 Jennifer
Jennifer, you put so much thought into this dimensional creation. I was inspired by the layers, beautiful colors, delightful critters and whimsy:

Donna: #84 Repolainen
Darling Bunny in a onesie style footed pajama!
How sweet and imaginative!

Donna: #50 Sherry G
While this is absolutely gorgeously colored,
the scene completely cracked me up!
Gotta love those critters!
