Are you guys ready for a new kind of challenge? One that will make you think outside of the box? If so... you have happened upon the right blog!!
Today we are announcing a new challenge called "Everything But The Kitchen Sink"! This challenge is going to be monthly and is going to be hosted each month by one of six fab bloggers!
Each month the host blogger will choose an item from around the house and will issue a challenge to all of you/us. The challenge will be to come up with a card using the item and then link your blog post/card using Mr. Linky on the host blog!
This month, Courtney Baker, is the challenge hostess with the mostest! Courtney is also the one who came up with the challenge idea! And what a great idea it is... don't ya think?
Courtney's challenge is to use something from the mail!!
Since this is the first challenge, Courtney is offering a $25 gift certificate to PAPERTREY INK to one of you!! Woo Hoo! You can check out Courtney's blog for more details on how that will work!
Challenge begins today and ends on Friday, October 9th . So.... get busy making some cards people!!! Are you as excited as I am?!?!? Oh... and tell all your blogging friends about this new challenge!! :) We are all so excited and would love love love to have great participation!!
Here are the cards that I made for the challenge!
On this first card, the family sign is from a catalog that I had received in the mail that day. It was a new catalog to me so I immediately flipped through it to see if it was a keeper or a recycle..er! :) When I saw this sign, I thought... hey... I can cut that out and use it on a card!! Cool!! I backed it with some thin recycled cardboard so I could pop it up with dimensionals.
On this card, I used newspaper to create a couple of flower layers! This was my original idea so I felt like I should go ahead and do that as well!! I sponged all of the flower with Ranger's Tattered Rose distress ink. Matches PTI's Sweet Blush pretty well!
I can't wait to see what you guys come up with!! :)
Be sure to pay a visit to the other girls so you can see what they created!! You will not be disappointed!!
Hope you all have a fabulous day! AND... thanks for being such good sports about all the teasing that has been going on! :) Love you guys!!
