Challenge #335

Good morning! 
Before I get to this week's sketch, I would like to let everyone know there is a spot available on the design team.  Shell finds it necessary to leave the team due to work commitments.  I will miss her so much.  This leaves a space for one new designer on our team, so, if you want to apply, either email me or message me on Facebook.  I hope to fill the spot by September 1st.

Now for the challenge.  The sketch is another great one from Dawn.  Here it is:
The optional technique: embossing

And here are the cards from the talented ladies on our team:

Wow!  Amazing cards, team!  I know they will inspire our followers.  And I cannot wait to see what everyone comes up with.  Remember, you have two weeks to play along and you can enter below or on our Facebook page.
Have a wonderful week!

Challenge #332 Top Three

Good morning!  We had some really beautiful cards for this challenge and it made it extremely difficult to choose our top three.  But, in the end, here are our choices:

Great cards, ladies!  As were all of the entries.  Thanks so much for playing along with us.

I would like to take a minute to remind everyone that your entries must be in jpeg form.  There was a beautiful card that I was not able to use as I could not convert it to a jpeg. Sorry about that.

I hope you have a good remainder to your week and get a chance to do some crafting along the way. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi everyone!  This week, we have another awesome sketch from Dawn . I am so indebted to the ladies from the team who completely took over when I could not get things done.  They will never know how appreciative I am.
Here is Dawn's sketch:
And the optional theme (thanks to Kaylin) is: A Masculine card

Here are the cards from the team to inspire everyone and to give you some ideas:

Great cards!  I LOVE all of the textures each of our designers used this week.  And these cards give our viewers some great ideas of their own, I am sure.

And it is a stunning card!  Thank you to Chris for her card and to the team for holding everything together when I was gone.

Challenge #332

Good morning all.  First I must apologize to everyone.  I was not able to post the challenge last week (for medical reasons, completely unexpected).  
I owe Donna from the team a debt of gratitude.  In my absence, she kept the Facebook page and the designer site running and I thank her for it.  Had I known what would occur, I would have arranged for someone to post here as well.  She will never know how much I appreciate everything she did.

Now on to Challenge #332.  Not surprisingly, the sketch is from Donna.  Again, thank you.
(Isn't it cute?)
The optional theme is Seaside/Ocean
And here are the inspirations from the team:

Beautiful cards, ladies!  Once again, thanks so much for keeping things going.  I know we will get lots of entries for this really great challenge.  As always, the sketch runs for two weeks and you can enter below or on our Facebook page.
Happy creating....and the best to everyone!

Beautiful cards, ladies.  What is missing in quantity has been surpassed by quality.  I know you will inspire our viewers to create some gorgeous cards of their own.  I hope everyone can find a little crafting time this week.

Remember everyone, you have two weeks to get your cards done and I cannot wait to see what everyone creates.
Have a wonderful week!

Challenge #329

Good morning to all and happy Fourth of July to all of our American friends!  I hope it is a gorgeous day wherever you are.
This week, our sketch is courtesy of Donna.  I love this sketch (reminds me of a men's tuxedo).
The optional theme is "Dainty and Neat".

And here are the great cards from our team:

Wow!  Great cards, team.....and very inspirational.  I know our followers will want to grab their supplies, sit outside in the beautiful summer weather (if you live in the northern hemisphere) or snuggle up (if you are in the southern half of the world) and create something amazing.  And I for one cannot wait to see what everyone comes up with.
As always, you have two weeks to play along and you can enter below or on our Facebook page.
Happy creating and enjoy your week!
