PP354 Challenge Winners

Hi Everyone.  Jaydee here.   Thank you to all of you who played along with our sketch challenge last week.  It's amazing to see how many different cards can be made from a single sketch.  We so enjoyed seeing your creations.  As usual, you made it very difficult for our design team to choose their favorites.


Now, before we get to my choice for Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team.

 
And now for our Headliner...


Christine



I love Christine's take on the sketch.  All of that wonderful ephemera comes together beautifully.   The wonderful die-cut drink, the glasses, the leaves, the book font DSP, the butterfly ... all make me think of a wonderful summer's day spent relaxing and reading.  I also love how she tied all those colors together.  The polka dot background just seems to be perfect.  So many wonderful things going on that I could stare at it for ages!  Congratulations, Christine on being my headliner this week


Thank you again to everyone for playing along with us!  Congratulations to all our winners, please pick up your badges here.  Please come back tomorrow for a fun Tic-Tac-Toe  Challenge from Joanne!

Hi all, Claire here with a big thank you for all your gorgeous seaside creations.  You had all of us wishing we were at the beach!  Now, before we get to my choice for Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team.

 
And now for our Headliner...

EK Gorman                                                         



EK's card is CAS perfection!  When I saw all those little piggies sunbathing it made me LOL!  The brush strokes are just perfect to replicate a pool of water.  The coloring on the pigs and rafts is amazing and the  sentiment represents the challenge theme!  Congratulations EK, you are my headliner this week!

PP352 Challenge Winners

Hello, crafters!  I was blown away by the gorgeous creations you made with my monochromatic color palette!  So many pretties...it was hard to choose!  But in the end, I kept returning to one special one!  Now, before we get to my choice for Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team.

 
And now for our Headliner...


Chris Pereira


Chris's gorgeous marbelized background caught my eye right off the bat!  The Sweet Sugarplum center element, accessorized with gold accents, was just delicate enough to be pretty but not overpower the background.  Maybe she'll send this card to me, what do you think?!  Congrats, Chris, on being my Headliner this week!

Thank you again to everyone for playing along with us!  Congratulations to all our winners, please pick up your badges here.  Please come back tomorrow for a fun Theme Challenge from Claire!

PP351 Challenge Winners

Hi Joanne here! What a fabulous gallery of cards this week with a selection of apples, mortar boards, balloons and much more in between. Perfect cards to say thank you and for those with much to celebrate! Now, before we get to my choice for Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team.

 
And now for our Headliner...


Martha Herrera - Martha Creates



Martha's card incorporates all those classic motifs that for me constitute a traditional teacher thank you card: bright colours, the stars and notepaper, a rather punny sentiment and not just an apple, but a rather stylish polka dot apple - how fun! Congratulations Martha on being my headliner this week!


Thank you again to everyone for playing along with us!  Congratulations to all our winners, please pick up your badges here.  Please come back tomorrow for a pretty Color Challenge from LeAnne!
