~Necktie Banner - FTHS 167

Happy Monday!!  We have a new sketch with a tWiSt for you over at From The Heart Stamps!  Our sketch this week is a great one for a nice clean and simple card which is what I did.

 I have used Necktie Banner for my image and the sketch-just turned it.   Paired it with some fun papers from Simple Stories called Aweso{ME}.

Use any size or shape, feel free to rotate it, flip it and embellish as you like, but if you use the sketch it should be recognizable!  Use the tWist(s), if you’d like. Or not!    We love to see your interpretation of the tWists and feel free to include your interpretation or inspiration in your posts.  As always, a From the Heart Stamps image is required.  Please check out the Challenge Rules under the tab “Challenges.”

~Bear Born to Shop

Time for a new challenge over at Di's Digi's and the design team has some gorgeous cards for you!  Our challenge this time around is Lots of Green!  Perfect timing for St Patrick's Day coming up. 

Green I would have to say is one color that I don't use a ton, not sure why really but I just gravitate to other colors usually I guess-so this really was a challenge for me!!

Our sponsor for this challenge is CRAFTY RIBBONS!!  Prize will be $10 voucher to the shop. (Winner pays shipping if any)

Remember-if you do use an image from DI'S DIGI STAMPS or any CandiBean stamp, you have a chance to win 2 images from DI'S DIGI STAMPS in addition to the sponsor prize!  So fun, just for featuring a Di's Digi image or CandiBean stamp!

Season's Greetings

Yay!!  It's here and finally our week to share with your our creations for the new Season's Greetings challenge! 

 I am the design team leader for Team Koala and our posts will be every 4th Tuesday (based in Brisbane, Australia) although the challenge does run every 2nd Tuesday as well.  Our challenges are always Anything Goes (Christmas or Winter based-hence the name Season's Greetings) and will have an optional twist if you would like to follow it.  


The twist this week is a super fun color challenge but I didn't have any papers in those colors so I opted out this time.  I have used a super cute image from Dilly Beans called Three Penguins and paired with some older Echo Park papers. 

Be sure to head on over to the challenge blog to see the rest of Team Koala's fun cards and enter your card!

I hope you will join us!  Season's Greetings Challenge Blog is waiting for your entry!

~FTHS Sketch with a tWiSt #161

 Hey everyone!  I hope it is nice and warm in your neck of the woods, we have had a few days of -30 temperatures and I'm ready for some warmth!  Not to mention the ton of snow we got this weekend as well!!  

I am so happy to be back at it with From The Heart Stamps.  Faith is feeling better and doing well so we are back with our sketch challenges, mid week inspiration and sketch of the month posts!  There have been a few changes to the sketch with a tWiSt challenge and they are as follows: 

A random winner will receive 2 free images of their choice.
There will be no $5 voucher for the winner and there will not be a $1.00 credit for participating at this time.  This may change in the future but for right now, we are starting back slow and do not want to overwhelm Faith.  

Also, our challenges are a bit different, there is an added color option or the tWiSt and of course the sketch, so you may use one of the above, or two or all three!

 This cute lil image is called Bunny Love and it is a freebie right now over at the FTHS Shop! I have used some oldie but lovely papers from CTHM called Lollydoodle and paired it with Slate CS from CTMH as well as the new Shimmer Pen from CTMH as well.

I hope you will join us this week, the challenge ends on Sunday so there's still lots of time to play along!

Happy Wednesday!
