C4C52 Kraftin' Kimmie's Saturday Challenge, An Announcement AND some Candy!
It's Saturday which means it is challenge time with the Crazies!!!!! and the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge too~! This week Frances is back with another fun challenge.
But before we get onto the challenges, I have a little announcement to make. This is my last challenge with the crazies. This is sad for me because Cindy, Frances and I founded this challenge blog about a year ago. It has been AMAZING to work together and watch the blog grow successfully with a HUGE following. If you've been following my blog, you'll know that I'm paring down some of my commitments to make more time for teaching............so I will totally miss Frances, Cindy and the rest of the Crazies.....it's been an awesome year and I hope to play along occasionally! I'll still be here designing, but on a smaller scale.
Now onto this week's Crazy challenge. Lattice .... this week we are going to include lattice in some form on our cards. Here are a few ideas to get you started ... lattice using your circuit machine, dies, embossed lattice using scor-pal; Lattice Punches; Designer paper that has lattice pattern, lattice background stamps or image stamps that include lattice on them; etc.
If you would like to play along with us, 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 C4C52. Don't forget to go back here and link it on Mr Linky so that everyone else can see it too.
Jeanne is our Hostess extraordinaire for the Kimmie Saturday Challenge to get all the details on how to link your creations up to the challenge, click HERE . The challenge is to use white and pearls! I made my card in Ivory, with a white card base.........I added very little colour to my image, shading the dress with Sand White. Pretty Princess Petunia doesn't look to shabby, if I don't say so myself!
I used a Martha Stewart Border Punch to add the Lattice border to the Cuttlebugged (Brocade Panel) and the half pearls are from Stampin' Up!
And now, if you're still reading..............the Candy! I was excited to see my followers surpass 300 today! I wanted to show some appreciation for that and have a Stampin' Up! Scallop Trim Border Punch up for grabs to one reader who comments on this post. I'll leave the post open until next Friday at Midnight and announce the winner with next Saturday's Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge. The Catch??? You must be a follower to win! I'll sweeten the pot with some suprises with each additional 5 followers that add on this week (as of this post, I'm at 301) if you want to spread the word, that would be great, but it's not a requirement to win. I'll add pictures through the week when I add the prizes~!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
