4 Crafty Chicks Inspirational Challenge!

Happy Thursday PEEPS! We cannot BEGIN to tell you how elated we are with how many entries we got this past week for Tamie's "METAL" challenge!!! This is so exciting for us girls - you have no idea! Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who participated!

Are you ready for a new challenge? This week, it's brought to you by me, Lori, and I have a gorgeous INSPIRATIONAL photo for you....I got it from the Better Homes and Gardens website. For our challenge this week, you take whatever you need to from this photo and run with it! It can be the colors, the patterns, the textures, whatever you want! I can't wait to see what you come up with :)


Here is the card I came up with - I decided to use the colors from the photo and also thought it would be a very quiet, peaceful place to sit and maybe have devotional time or just relax sippin' on a scrumptious coffee:

The rest of the Chicks came up with gorgeous creations for you:

Winner of Challenge #51 - Metal

Good afternoon from sunny small town Alberta. I have been busy today working in the house but have been thinking about going out and doing some weeding in my flower beds. What has your Wednesday held for you?

We would like to thank everyone who played in my challenge this week of using Metal. So many wonderful works of art were shared with us. You know this really is the best thing about being part of a challenge blog is that you get to see what other's come up with for our challenges. So thank you! Again it was a hard week to pick but alas we finally came down to three.



Beautiful colors, layout, punches, flowers, butterflies. Your coloring is wonderful. We loved how you used a metal key on your card with the metal brads. A really fun card.

Georgina


Beautiful colors on your card and wonderful coloring. We love the metal corner you chose to use on your layout. A beautiful card with the flowers and layout.

Where's The Metal?

Hello, Hello, Hello! Welcome back to our 51st challenge and your hostess is me (Tamie). So when coming up with this challenge, I got to thinking about what I don't always use. I love all the awesome creations made with metal but even still it doesn't always get used on my cards. Pearls, ribbon, flowers and my embossing take over. So I asked myself where is the Metal? Well my metal was way back in one of my craft drawers...LOL. We hope you will come and show us how metal inspires you.

CHALLENGE #51 METAL?
Where do you keep your metal?

Here is my card:

Winner's of Challenge #48 - Get Your Bling On

Happy Wednesday afternoon. It is sunny here now after a little bit of rain. It was the perfect time for me (Tamie)to get my post done. So do you know what we discovered this week? Our crafters really know how to GET YOUR BLING ON!! There were so many jaw dropping enteries that it was truly hard for us girls to just pick three but alas we had to follow our own rules. You all showed us what inspired you with our challenge this week and let me tell you it was truly fantastic we had several different kinds of entries not just cards this week and they were stunning as well. Keep bringing it on for us...we just love it :)

Our winner's are in no particular order:


Annika the colors on your card are amazing! The layout rocks and boy did you ever get your bling on with the metal, brads and gems, for a stunning card. Your coloring is truly beautiful.
Louise your card is elegant and the colors and style of it is just gorgeous. The border has the eye popping effect and the bling you used around the inside border just adds to the pop and elegance of your card. The glitter on the present is the perfect touch too! Loving the image :)

What a totally great idea of blinging up a CD case. It looks amazing with the flowers and the way you used the pearl drops, sparkling glitter and the glitter spray makes for one fabby creation.

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.
