CHALLENGE #31 AND CRAZY EGG

Welcome back to another crafty Thursday here at 4 Crafty Chicks. What an amazing challenge Lori gave us last week...a few people had to dig deep into their stash to find eyelets to play with us but when you all found them your cards popped with inspiration. Thank you so much to everyone who joined us last week. Can you believe it is the last Thursday of March already. Here in Alberta there is no Spring in sight just snow...LOL. I have enjoyed reading some of our players blogs that the sun is shining where they are and it looks like Spring. Enough of that and onto the good stuff. We invite you to join us this week for our latest challenge. Challenge #31 is brought to you by me, Tamie. Us CHICKS thought it would be nice to play with a Recipe this week. Please use one ribbon, two pattern papers and three buttons on your creations.

Challenge #31

Recipe: 1 Ribbon, 2 DSP and 3 Buttons
Don't forget this is the last Thursday of the month so you know what that means....it is prize week. The prize is offered up by me *Tamie*.
Well my challenge for this card was using pattern paper. The funny part is I tend to not use it, embossing just seems easier...LOL. Although, everyones cards look so amazing with pattern paper. I love this challenge because it makes me dig into my stash of stuff that is not always used as much as I would like. It is hard to read but the saying in the circle is *so sweet of you*.


My partners in crafting have created some wicked inspiration for you this week. Just give them a recipe and the magic just flows. Way to rock it out girls.

Holy Stitching, Batman!!! The Golden Eggs Go To...

WOW - WOW - WOW...  What a fantastic response to Leanne's stitching challenge last week and you all did A-MAZING jobs!  Leanne and I had our work cut out for us - we had a really hard time picking only three Golden Egg winners so I made an executive decision - we chose FOUR!  HA!  I'm not sure if Lori and Tamie will ever leave us alone again if we go changing things while they are gone.  *giggle*  You know what they say, "While the cat's away, the mice do play."  *wink*

So - in order of submission, here are this week's Golden Egg winners:

Challenge #27 Stitching

Hello fellow crafters, wow Thursday already, fast week. Sure has been a fun one around here. The 4 Crafty Chicks are going to be down to two for a couple weeks. Our Multi-Talented Lori and our Creative Cheerful Tamie are on vacation as of Saturday for two weeks. So it is I, Leanne, and the Creative Wizard Melissa still here in this winter wonderland holding down the blog. I am sure we can handle all the pressures. Hee hee!! We wish them lots of sunshine and fun with their families. But come back fresh and ready to Craft!



Thanks to everyone that entered last week for Lori's Inspiration Photo. Everyone did such a amazing job. And Congrats to you winners.



Now onto this weeks Challenge, and it is brought to you by Me! I haven't done this technique in a long time, and I thought it needed to come back out. So it is Stitching, so in saying that, it can be faux or regular, lots or a little bit. Just as long as we see some form of it on your project. Have fun with it. My fellow Chicks have done a fantastic job this week, with their talents. Have fun, and I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Happy Craftn'.

Tamie
