Okay, this week our challenge is being brought to you by.....me, TAMIE!!! As you can tell from the title Challenge #8 is a SKETCH. I hope you find some inspiration with this sketch. I designed it on My Digital Studio and well there is still so much for me to learn...learning is good right? :) It is another product for me to become addicted too *wink, wink*! Thanks Leanne for your help!

Are You Ready to Be Inspired?

Is it really Thursday again already???   How'd that happen?  :)   We had some pretty spectacular submissions for last week's distressing challenge so, again, you made it very difficult for us to pick only three.  After much discussion we chose these three cards to win the Golden Egg:





Congratulations ladies!  Please grab the badge and display it with love on your blog.  :)



Now onto this week's challenge and it's an Inspiration Challenge.  I found this lovely photo over at the  Better Home and Gardens website and immediately knew it would be perfect for an Inspiration Challenge:
Are you inspired?  The beauty of an inspiration challenge is that everyone will take something different from the picture - whether it is the colors, the theme, the texture or the shapes.  Whatever part of the photo inspires you, run with it!  :)

Here are the Crafty Chicks' cards - please check out their blogs for their explanations about how they used this photo for inspiration:

We can't wait to see your cards and how you all used the photo for inspiration!  Have fun!
