Challenge #99 - Make A Box

Good morning everyone! Welcome to 4 Crafty Chicks for another fun filled challenge.  Thank you so much to our fellow bloggers who came out to play this past week.  It truly was an amazing turnout.

Your hostess this week is me "Tamie".  I am super excited to be bringing you our 99th challenge.  What an exciting time it is for us Chicks as we approach our 100th challenge next week.  Time has flown by but how we have enjoyed creating our challenges each week to share with each other and you.

What kind of challenge do I have for you this week?
  
 CHALLENGE #99 - MAKE (Create) A BOX
You can make a box from scratch and decorate it.
or
 Take a box that has already been made and decorate it.  

It is one that I have never ever done by myself, only in my stamping group where Lori gave me instructions on how to make one.    I figured it was time to step out of my comfort zone and try something new...LOL.  Here is my take on a Mini Pizza Box:


Our wonderful GDT has created this fabulous box.


My fellow Chicks went above and beyond to create these marvelous pieces of art!! Thanks for creating such wonderful inspiration for this challenge.

Winners of Challenge #98 - Stripes

Howdy Ho!! How are you all doing today?  Can you believe that we are almost done the 3rd week of July.  Oh my where is the time going?  Our summer is flying by.

Thank you so much to everyone who has taken the time to play with us this summer.  We had an amazing 73 entries for Melissa's Challenge.  They were absolutely FABULOUS!! Every creation had rockin inspiration and made our job of picking our TOP 3 incredibly hard.  Without further adieu here are our TOP 3 picks in no particular order:


 Who doesn't love a good party! What an awesome image and your coloring if fabulous.  The colors you chose and the layout of your card is very inspirational and shows off the stripes perfectly.


What an amazing bold and striking masculine card.  The way you used the stripes, along with the ruler paper is sweet and adds to the pop of your card.  Your coloring of the image is awesome and it represents Dads and their tool belts to a tee.  Marvelous inspiration.


Whoooo, Whoooo has a cute card?  You do, You do!  This image you have colored is rockin.  The stripes and colors you have used really pop and make for outstanding inspiration.

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 blog too.


Thanks to all who participated in our "STRIPES" Challenge. We will see you tomorrow morning for our new challenge! Be sure to stop on over to see what our new Guest Designer has to share with us!!
