Challenge # 382 - Down On The Farm!

Happy Wednesday, all!  This week the challenge is all about the farm.  So think farm animals, equipment (tractors, farm wagon etc.), crops, barns & other farm buildings, field scenes....so many to ideas to pick from!

This is what I did.....

Maybe not a realistic farm situation, not too many sheep riding scooters out there, but it certainly fits the theme.

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!

**We're aware that some of you are having trouble with the Linky and we're sorry for the inconvenience! If you cannot add your make, please pop it into the comments instead. We have contacted InLinkz and they have suggested that if you have a problem with the Linky to contact them directly.  I know that's not much of a solution but I'm afraid that's all they've given us.**

Challenge #381 ~ Season of Love

Good Morning!!  Heather here and I am your hostess for this week's challenge.  I have entitled it SEASON OF LOVE.  By that, for the challenge sake, I want to see your projects using a product from a company or companies that you love to use.  Show me your "go to" manufacturer of stamps, paper or whatever you use lots on your projects.

I used a stamp set from my all time favourite company of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  The other "go to" products are Tim Holtz distress inks and Spellbinders die cuts.

Check out what the other girlfriends have made and link up a project of your own using your favourite manufacturer.  Can't wait to see and I will be back on Tuesday evening with my top picks of the week.

Have a great day!!!

**Hello all.  Some of our crafty friends seem to be having a problem adding their makes to the Link.  I know in investigating I couldn't add a link using an older version of Internet Explorer.  So, for now, try a different browser and hopefully that'll work.  We are looking into the issue with InLinkz and we hope to have answers soon.**

Challenge #380 Color Challenge

Hi Everyone!
Sandy here and I am so excited for this week's challenge! This week is a color challenge and you need to use red and/or pink and black in your creation.  I know Valentine's Day is coming up, but your project does not have to be related to love & hearts. You can see here that I made a birthday card.  I've been on a Stamping Bella kick here lately.  I messed up on her dress and to "fix it" I used black Wink of Stella.  Well, if you could see this card in real life it turned out rather nicely.  My little uptown girl is wearing that perfect "Little Black Dress!"
Take a peek at what the other girlfriends have made.  I know they would LOVE a comment and I would LOVE for you to join this challenge with us, just link up below.  You have until next Tuesday to play along.

Challenge #379 - Top Picks

Thanks so much to all who joined in last week's "tweet" challenge. Given that we're still in the thick of winter here, it was a delight to see all your bird creations as I wait for spring! There was such a wonderful variety of inspiration. Here are a few of my favourites.




Congratulations, ladies!!! Please be sure to grab your "Featured" button from the sidebar of our blog!

Challenge #379 - How Tweet it is!

Happy February! This week's challenge is a "tweet" one. We'd like to see your projects with birds on them. 

I made a set of cards, two for "bird-days" and one thank you card. The cards were fairly simple to put together with a bit of ink blending over a stencil, some stamping, colouring and die cutting. Each card contains a set of birds on a wire - perfect for this week's bird theme!

Please link up your bird-themed project below. I can't wait to see what you create and look forward to popping by your blogs for more details. You've got a week to join the fun!
