not only have we been squealing over all the gorgeous new releases (both digital AND clear!), but we have changed our challenges to a monthly event. our first challenge was a photo/colour inspiration... the second in the rotation is going to be a SKETCH! so we'll be alternating (and maybe, OCCASIONALLY, tossing in a little something different to mix it up) between these 2 themes.
and, of course, our Very Odd Girls have dropped the hammer here, because they ruled this challenge something FEROCIOUS! CLICK CLICK CLICK to see what everyone did for this one - you WON'T be disappointed! :)
here's our sketch for March:
YEP! we went for a CAS kinda thing this month. that can be a smidge tricky for me, but i was up for the challenge, natch. :)
hellooooooooo Baker Mae!
and hellooooooo teeny tiny brown ball trim! you make my crafty little heart so very happy!
check out Baker Mae, lookin' all elegant, and gettin' her blingy on!
i just lurrrrrve those itsy bitsy blingy gems from CTMH and i am almost out! aren't they the perfect size for this cupcake?!
Miss Baker Mae is coloured up with my beloved Prismacolor Pencils (but i AM trying to get friendly with the handful of Copics i have, so once i've placed my order, i'll probably be posting lots of little guinea pig creations using them - i have a big hill to climb with markers!) and my card was created using nothin' but scraps. i am a thrifty bish! :)
so there ya be, folks. inspired? hope so! use the sketch, and use any Some Odd Girl stamp (digi, clear, Nouveau, sentiment - doesn't mattah!), and play along before March 29th at midnight EST and you could win this:
(OH MY GOOMIE, it's Fan! one of the brand new Nouveau Girls sets!)
Random.org will choose our Fan winner, and one person who totally WOWS Kristy with their submission will get the Maes! how's that for a little something to sweeten the pot?! so click and join us!
