Since it's the last Thursday of the month, that means it's PRIZE TIME! I am offering up the following goodies to one lucky participant this week. We will use Random.org to choose the winner:



Here is my card for this weeks' challenge - it is from a kit that I made a while back and I used rub-on's and a marker for the accents...

Winner's of Challenge #86 - Boys Dig It!

Welcome back to 4 Crafty Chicks.....it is a gray day out here in Central Alberta.  The rain that will be coming is sure going to green things up and make the air smell fresh.

Blogger is testing my patience today but with Lori's (fellow chicks) help I am now on my way to announcing our TOP 3.  What an amazing week we had, with so much inspiration and talent on our Boys Dig It Challenge.  It is definitely a place to come back to for idea's and inspiration. Thanks to everyone who took the time to share your creations with us, they are all so fabby.

After many hard decisions we have come up with our TOP 3.


The faux stitching is just awesome on the layered pieces and adds to the dimension of your card. Your colors are fabulous and the image that you colored is so amazing. What little boy doesn't love there dog, the water and maybe a little quiet time fishing.  Fabulous inspiration.


Stunning colors together, along with the layers and layout.  Your image is so crisp and clean.  The image you colored is fabulous and your guitar is just the perfect touch.  So many boys want to be a rock star and this image just shows what it is like to learn music with such concentration .  Wonderful inspiration.


The colors are stunning together and the pattern paper is just perfect.  So many other details on your card just make it pop.  Crisp lines, buttons and the material add so much to your creation. Your image is wonderful and the coloring is fantastic.  Besides cars, what boy doesn't love a plane. Amazing inspiration.

Boys Dig It!

Hello and welcome back to 4 Crafty Chicks. Be sure to scroll down and see our TOP 3 picks for last week. First off thank you so much too everyone who joined us for Melissa's challenge last week. The talent was rockin.

Today is Thursday so you know what that means a new challenge for everyone to play along with. It is me, Tamie and it is my pleasure to share this weeks challenge with you.

CHALLENGE #86 - BOYS DIG IT!

Sometimes, I find it hard to make masculine cards and when I need one there is never one around. It is a simple challenge right?

The card I created is a simple one and it was for my sons birthday. He loves his Ipod touch (a boys dig it moment) and well I thought this Kenny K image (Teen Idol) was totally him.


My fellow DT's have really out did themselves on this challenge. Thanks girls for the amazing inspiration.

Kasey

Challenge #85 - Material Girl!

Welcome back for another fun 4 Crafty Chicks' Challenge!  We've got a fun one for you this week but you might find it a bit challenging.  :)  I know most of us have used ribbon and twine on our cards but how many of us have used fabric?  Probably not as many as you'd think.  So, this week, my challenge to you is to use fabric/material on your project - and ribbon/twine doesn't count!!!  Yes, I'm making it difficult but that's why they call it a challenge, right?  You could use burlap or canvas or cotton....the possibilities are endless.

For my card, I used some felt.  I picked up a bunch at the dollar store in town and have been using it a fair bit lately:


And here's what the rest of the fabulous design team created for us this month - Heather and Casey are back together for the whole month!  Thanks again, ladies!

Heather

Her fabric/material is the tulle in the flowers.


Kasey
Her fabric/material is from a bag she made for her Mum - it was some she had left over...lovely.

Her fabric/material is the stamped image, colored and used Spellbinders to cut it out.

Her fabric/material is the felt clouds using a MFT die.

Tamie
Her fabric/material is the felt flowers on her card.

Each and every creation had amazing flowers on it whether it was a few or a lot or just on the image. The 3D projects, cards, baskets, scrapbook pages...were all master pieces. Oh and when you all used an image do you ever know how to color. Eye popping, jaw dropping creations this week.

Wahoooo! Man oh man all of our entrants give us so much inspiration and the talent is truly undeniable. We had an amazing 122 entries and they ranged from cards, eggs, baskets, books, door hangers, gift jars, other 3D projects and scrapbook pages (hopefully I didn't forget any style of craft that was made). We also had kids, gentlemen and ladies join us this week. Thank you so much for making our Easter Challenge such a success and for sharing what it means to you.

It was soooo hard to pick our winner's this week....thanks for making our job so *tough*. It is worth it too see what you share with us but is sometimes hard as we want to pick so many more than three but alas are strict with ourselves at sticking to our rules. Here are our TOP 3 and below that our Prize Winner.



What a beautiful spring image! The size of the flower is wonderful it looks like it popping right off of the page. The bunny is just too perfect sitting on top of the flower. Amazing coloring and wonderful inspiration.

Wonderful colors, layout, flowers and ribbon. Your coloring is so beautiful and the image is sooo cute for Easter, that bunny looks like it just needs to be picked up and hugged by a little one. Just marvelous inspiration.
