Challenge #324

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  I am glad you could stop by.  This week, we have a great sketch courtesy of Kaylin.  The ladies on the team are such a big help; they always provide really good sketches when I am bogged way down in other "stuff" and I really do appreciate all they do.

So, here is the sketch:
The optional technique is Shades of One Colour

And here are the cards from our team:

Gorgeous, ladies!  I know our viewers will want to play along this week - and it is all thanks to you.  I am so lucky to have such a talented team.
Remember, everyone, you have two weeks to get your cards done and you can enter below or on our Facebook page.  Happy crafting, everyone!

Challenge #323

Hello and happy Tuesday!  I hope everyone has some crafting time available to them because we have a great sketch for you this time - thanks to Kaylin.  
The optional theme is: Pretty as a Picture.

We have some gorgeous samples from our team and I know they will inspire you.  Here they are:

Beautiful cards, team!  And all are indeed "pretty as a picture".  
I think it is time for a guest designer.  One card chosen from the entries to this challenge will garner its creator a guest designer spot on our team for challenge #326.  We look forward to seeing who that is.
So, everyone get out your supplies and get your creativity brewing. We cannot wait to see what you come up with.  Remember, you have two weeks to get your entries in.  Happy card making, all!

Challenge #321

Good morning and happy Tuesday!  I hope everyone is ready to create.  Our sketch this week is a very basic one:
And comes with the optional theme "As theGarden Grows".
I am hoping a happy, garden-y theme and sketch will possibly change our sub-zero weather.  I know it is a long shot but I can always wish.

And here are the cards from our team:

Well, if all these beautiful cards don't influence our weather, I do not know what will.  I love the cards from our team and I am sure you do too!  They are all so bright and cheery.  Thanks so much, ladies, for being on our team.

Challenge #320

Good morning to everyone!  May usually brings warmer weather and the beginning of the gardening season in Northern Ontario.  Can you believe that we got snow mixed with our rain yesterday?  Not so good for outdoor work....but great for crafting.

And here are the cards from our talented team:

Wow!  Very creative, ladies, and very inspirational as well.  I am sure your cards will spur our viewers on.  Your cards are absolutely beautiful.  Thanks for being on our team.
