Challenge # 77

Hello to everyone.  It is Tuesday and that means another great challenge.  I want to apologize to everyone beforehand - for two things.  First, there is no guest designer this week.  The card maker I contacted did not get back to me.  Second, I did not make a sample this week.  I have worked 8 days straight and am dead tired - but i promise I will get back on board next week.  

Now, on to the sketch - another great one:
And here are the awesome samples from the Stampin' Friends:

OK, it is your turn.  I cannot wait to see what you come up with.  Thanks for visiting!

Did you get a chance to look at the cards from last week?  Weren't they great.  The entries covered all kinds of cards - funny, cute, Christmas, elegant, masculine.  I am so glad that you each could see something different in the sketch.
And thanks to everyone who entered.
Now for the top 3......
Ladies, please feel free to catch our badge for your blogs. All of your cards are awesome!! I will be contacting one of you to be our guest designer next week.
Congratulations and Happy Stamping!

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  Hope you are all ready for another great challenge.
This week's sketch is another with lots of possibilities.  

We have a great guest designer for you this week.  Petra Berendsen has created a beautiful card as her example.  You can just see by the detail how talented she is.  Don't you just love her photo?
And here is her card:
Is it not the cutest thing!

Challenge #75

Hi again!
It is Tuesday and that means a brand new challenge here at Try Stampin' On Tuesday.  And here is the sketch:

This week we have an amazing guest designer - Beverly Gotthardt and her blog is Gott Art.  Beverly has a wonderful talent and, when you visit her blog, you will see her great imagination at work.
She is a true artist!
Here is her inspiration for the challenge:

And here are the examples from the Stampin' Friends Team:

Okay, now it is your turn.  

Welcome Mynnette

Good morning to everyone!   
I would like to welcome Mynnette Kitchen to our Stampin' Friends design team.  Mynnette was our guest designer a couple of weeks ago and, when a position opened, I did not hesitate to invite her into our little group.  She is a very talented card maker and I look forward to her inspirations each week.

Since Mynnette knew she was joining our team, her card was not eligible for the challenge this week but, since she is so dedicated to her craft, she designed one anyway.  And I am pleased to share it with you.
Please visit her blog and welcome her to Try Stampin'.

Congratulations to Amy, Sean and the boys!

Challenge #73

Good morning.  Sorry this is a bit late but I was hoping that a few more samples would come in.  But, alas, not so. Also, there will be no guest designer this week as our invitee did not get back to me.  I guess I am jinxed this week.
Here is our sketch, a pretty basic one:

And here are the samples from the Stampin' Friends:

And now, it is your turn.  I cannot wait to see your projects.
Thanks for visiting!
