What Does July Bring at 4 Crafty Chicks?

WELCOME, WELCOME to another challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks. July is just flying by but it is wonderful spending time with family and friends. So my title asks a question, "What Does July Bring?" Well it brings tons of weddings and celebrating two people becoming united with family and friends.

CHALLENGE #47 - WEDDING

Tamie

Here is my creation for this challenge. I went with black, white and red because I thought it looks sharp. The dry embossing adds some elegance and the bling adds the pop my card needed.



My other 3 chicks have made some beautiful creations to inspire you. Here they are:

We're Goin' Color Crazy!

Hey everyone!  Welcome back for another fabulous (if I do say so myself...) challenge here at the 4 Crafty Chicks.  We are all busy enjoying our summer break - the weather has been rather lovely over the last couple of weeks and I know I've been spending much of my time relaxing and not as much inside crafting.

This week's challenge is a fun little color challenge I've cooked up for you all to play with - don't you love the fun these colors inspire?

As always, these colors *are* Stampin' Up! colors but if you don't have the exact colors, please use whatever you have on hand that is close... we want you ALL to be able to play along with us!

Here's what I created using these fun colors:



And the rest of the chicks really knocked this one outta the park, didn't they?

Winner's of Challenge #45 - Sketch

Good afternoon all! Are you all ready for a new challenge tomorrow? This last week we saw our numbers drop but want you to know we appreciate everyone who played with Leanne's sketch. It was a fabby sketch, that I know our DT 's will use again and hopefully you will too. Now that summer is on it's way, it is sometimes hard to find the time to craft. Hopefully you are able to get some *me time* in and have some fun crafting with 4 Crafty Chicks this summer.

Onto our winner this week.

Patti used an amazing color combo, with fabby pattern paper. The way you put circles under your flowers adds great dimension and showing the half border punch adds to the pop on the top of the pattern paper. The stamp set you used is an awesome one too. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful card with us. You rocked Leanne's sketch.




Congratulations, ladies! Please grab your Golden Egg badge and display it proudly on your blog! We'd love it if you could link it back to our challenge too.



Thanks to all who participated in Leanne's Sketch challenge! We will be back tomorrow with a brand new challenge...can you believe we are up to #46 already? Crazy... See you in the morning!

We had an amazing 73 entries and let me tell you all - we struggled and struggled to only pick 3 winners this week. Thank you all so much for the fabby entries.

Cheryl the stitching on your card is just stunning both inside and out. The colors you chose for your card are stunning and so is the bow and flower. You have tons of details inside your card and out and it flows so nicely. Love the image too.

#40. Cheryl (She Stamps)


Cheryl what stunning colors you used for your card. The image is cute and the coloring is beautiful. The way you used the stitching on the layers just helps to make your card pop. The flowers add the final touch of perfect.

#68. Cammi


Cammi your card is oh so sweet! Your coloring is fantastic, the image is adorable and the layout on your card is amazing. Fabby job with the stitching on the 3 back panels and for adding your flowers and bow for the extra pop.
