Challenge #13 - Inspirational Challenge

Good morning! Welcome back to another installment from the 4 Crafty Chicks :) This morning's temperatures are sure a lot more pleasant that yesterday (-37C with a -44C windchill BRRRR)...and it looks like we are in for a tiny spell of nice(r) temp's for the next few days. We'll take it!

We had such amazing entries for our "Anything But a Card" challenge last week - thank you to all of you who participated. Unfortunately, we can't pick ALL of your creations, although, it would make things A LOT easier *wink* so here are the 3 Golden Egg choices for this week in numerical order:

Betty


Lesley


Congratulations ladies! Please grab the "Golden Egg Badge" and display it proudly on your blog and then link it back to us if you wouldn't mind!

Now....onto this week's challenge! I am your "Hostess-with-the-mostess" this week (Lori) and I am bringing you an Inspiration Challenge. Take anything you want from the following picture and create away! You can chose to take the colors from the photo, certain elements, or re-design the whole scene...whatever inspires you - run with it!!! :) I cannot *wait* to see what gorgeous creations come of this photo.


I found this GORGEOUS mantle picture at Better Homes and Gardens website....doesn't it just make you want to curl up beside the fireplace with a homemade quilt, some hot apple cider and a good book?!? (Especially with these -36C temperatures we've been experiencing here in central Alberta!! hahah)

AND...as an added bonus this week, it is the last Thursday of the month, so you know what that means, right?! It's "prize" time! From all the participants who enter, we will use Random.org to pick a winner of a yummy prize donated by our lovely Tamie :) .

Prize Description:

Glitter pen (atyou Spica 02 Pink), Snowman Stamp (Penny Johnson), a mix and match of ribbon, buttons and punched paper; crocheted flowers, chipboard flowers, pearls.

For my card, I drew out the Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green colors and went to work :) I've seen so many cards on Splitcoaststampers and Paper Craft Planet using the Lovely as a Tree stamp set from SU! as their Christmas tree boughs....so, I decided to give it a try myself and I totally LOVE how it turned out!
Melissa, Leanne and Tamie have out-done themselves yet AGAIN this week with some gorgeous creations! Take a sneak peak and then hop on over to their blogs and leave them each some lovin's :) Click on their names to get to their blogs.
