C4C42 and Kraftin' Kimmie Saturday Challenge 34

Before we get onto today's C4C challenge we have a few announcements to make regarding changes in our Design Team.

First up Lori Boyd is super busy with all that she has been doing recently, and with summer now here she wants to spend lots of time with her "5 little reasons". Thanks Lori for all your inspiration over the past 12 months, it's been lots of fun having you on the team!

We are also excited to introduce to you a new member to our Design Team, I am sure many of you will know her already because her creations are amazing!!!!!!!! Please welcome Maria Bell of Stampin Inspirations blog!

Mercy is here again to bring you another fun and fabulous challenge!

This week she wants to see you create a card/project using PAPER FLOWERS! These can be paper flowers that you have purchased from the craft store, or flowers that you have punched and created yourself....if you are stuck, you can head to the C4C blog to get a link to Mercy's Tutorial.................and now here is where I got stuck............. I guess I have reading problems because I thought I was to use a home made flower on my as you can see, mine is not from paper, but crocheted..........and hand made by one of my very good friends Andreanne. Now I've asked her to teach me how so that I can make my own........but that is a very eager goal as I have tried to crochet several times to no avail! Anyway........... paper flower ladies..........paper flower! lol

If you would like to play along with us at C4C , all you have to do is create a card/project and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword C4C42. Don't forget to go back to C4C and link it on Mr Linky so that everyone else can see it too.

And now for the Kraftin' Kimmie Krafty Saturday Challenge! Krafty Jeanne has asked us to use a pretty summer colour combination on our cards.............Yellow, Blue and Tan. I was very lean with the Tan as you can it just wasn't my week, but go my mojo on with the Blue and Yellow!!! For my card I used the Beautiful Marina from the Summer Mermaid Kit that's now available and on special over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Be sure to pull out your Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps for this challenge and you could win a Krafty Prize! Check out the Kraftin' Kimmie Blog for all the details.
