Challenge # 422 - Foodie

It's Brenda here and I'm am your challenge hostess this week. Since we just celebrated Thanksgiving here in the US, I thought it would be fun to have everyone show their "Foodie" side. Anything having to do with food or beverages is what I am looking for. Here's what I came up with -

I'm not sure why my New Year's cards alway feature champagne, I don't even really care much for champagne, but I do love this stamp!

I'm looking forward to seeing what you decide to do with this challenge. I most certainly hope you will join us. I know the Girlfriends are going to rock this challenge, so follow their links for a closer look at their creations. Thanks for stopping by today!

Challenge # 421 - Let's Get Sketchy

Happy Wednesday, all!  We've got something a little different for you this week.  We've got a sketch!  And here it is....

Now, I'm gonna tell you a little secret.....I'm not the least bit upset when people take liberties with sketches.  I've always thought that sketches should be the jumping point for inspiration, not a map of exactly how a card should be made.  So, feel free to add embellishments and a sentiment, like the sketch says.  Not feeling circle-y? Use a different shape!  Want to be a rebel and put the rectangle ON TOP of the circle?  Got for it!  Turn it 90ยบ?  Yeppers!  Not the adventurous type and want to make your card EXACTLY like the sketch, of course that works too.  Just as long as we can see the original sketch somewhere in your creation, it's all good.

And remember, you can do a layout or tag or bookmark or altered project - any paper craft is in!

So, this is what I did.....

I did stick fairly close to the sketch, but it was my sketch, after all, might have seemed weird if I didn't.  ;-)

If you'd like more inspiration be sure to check out the wonderful projects the Girlfriends have created. Then, head back here and link up.

Can't wait to see what you create!

Top Picks Challenge #420 ~ Penguins and Polar Bears

Hi there. was a hard choice this week.  Your penguin and polar bear creations were all amazing and I enjoyed visiting each and every one of you.  So I chose one penguin card and one polar bear card that really stood out to me:



And I couldn't help but add this as one of my top picks because we obviously have the same taste in stamps :)


Ladies, if you are featured here grab your button for your blog and enjoy.  Don't forget to join us again tomorrow where we will begin a brand new challenge.
