Something yellow, green and blue~ CHALLENGE

It's Friday again already! We loved all the shapes from last week, thanks for sharing some of your creativity with us!! And thanks to Marcea for donating that fun Sugar Nellie!!!

With spring in full swing, we thought a great idea for a challenge would be something with beautiful spring colors. So this week we've issued a color challenge of yellow, green, and blue. Your project can use any shades or multiple shades of all three colors, they just all need to be represented. The occasion for the project is up to you!

This week we have a new sponsor, The Cutting Cafe! Here's a bit about them......

Hello my name is Regina Easter. I have 4 wonderful children and an awesome supportive husband. I have for as long as I can remember loved all the aspects of creating things with paper and drawing. So it was only fitting that I decided to open up The Cutting Cafe' and I am loving every bit of this new venture. The Cutting Cafe' offers affordable Printable Stamps and Cutting Files. The Cutting Files which are basically just like templates are files that you Print out using your home printer, Cut, Assemble and then Embellish.....Very Easy.....The Cutting Files also come in the format where you can cut out the files using some of the latest Machine Cutters like the Pazzles Inspiration, Bosskut Gazelle and Cricut (with Scal software). The Printable Stamps are just that, images that are sent to you through email that you print out using your home printer. After the images are printed out, you can just color them in like you would any other stamped imaged...One great thing about the Printable Stamps and Cutting Files is that you no longer have to worry about finding space to store all of your stamps....You can keep them all in a folder in your computer and use over and over again.

The random winner of this challenge can choose 3 sets from the Cutting Cafe!!! Thanks Regina for that generous and yummy blog candy!

In order to win this prize just leave a direct link to your project using the Mr. Linky feature below by 7pm ET Thursday, April 23rd. The winner will be randomly chosen and announced shortly after. Feel free to combine this challenge with as many others as you can, just make sure it's a new creation, thanks:)

Happy Easter Somethings ~ CHALLENGE

Happy Friday Everyone!!

Wow, awesome job with the sketch challenge last week! The creations were all so different and fun! Thanks to everyone who played along with us and thanks to Emily for creating that great layout to work with. We also want to say thank you again to Laura and Layers of Colors for the super generous blog candy!

Now, on to another fun challenge! This week we want to see your Happy Easter Somethings. We realize that not everyone celebrates Easter, so please feel free to make just a Happy Something. Anything that says Happy or Happy Easter will do for this challenge! Be sure to post your creation on your blog and then use the Mr. Linky feature below to link directly to your entry. We will draw one random winner from the linked entries next Thursday evening, April 9th after 7pm EST.

And this week we have another new sponsor, this time it's Digital Stamp Oasis! Ellie Stover, the owner of Digital Stamp Oasis has generously donated the blog candy this week. One lucky participant in this week's challenge will receive 4 free images of his/her choice from the Digital Stamp Oasis Collection.

Here's a bit of info about Digital Stamp Oasis....

We are a brand new family owned company that offers digital images for coloring and using with your paper crafts. Digital images are a true space saver and a great way to add several images to your collection without having to break the bank. They will be emailed to the winner in a zip-file and can then be printed out on card stock (uncoated 110lb works great) and used just as you would use an image that you received from a image swap. Copics (or similar) markers, as well as prismacolor pencils blended with odorless mineral spirits work GREAT with digital images. Just color and start creating!

Hop on over to their shop and see what's new! Be sure to also check out this week's Happy Something created by the Stamp Something Design Team!

Have fun stamping out something happy! :)
