Challenge 29

What an awesome turn out for Challenge #28! We were so excited to see all the new blogs and of course, just as delighted to see our familiar "faces" playing again. Thank you everyone who participated, it's just as much fun for us to see all the entries as it is playing along!

Time to announce our winners and a new challenge! The random winner for this challenge was 36. Adeline Ng! She created a cheery "Get Well Card" using PK-229 & PK-M16. For our judged contest, it was so hard choosing a winner, because there were quite a few that we just LOVED! The winner for this week's judged entry is 31. Jessica Lapierre!! She crafted an ADORABLE little flowerbed scene using some of her faces from PK-490. Congratulations, ladies!! Please email me your info so we can get your prizes shipped out to you right away!

Now we are going to get cookin'! For our next challenge, Peachy Keen wants to see your favorite yummy summer BBQ or picnic recipe! AND we want you to feature it as a recipe card! There is no size limitation, have fun and be creative! We'll have two winners once again, so you have TWO chances to win! One winner will be random, the other will be judged. Everybody can play along! Please make sure you link your blog entry by Sunday, June 6th to be eligible for the prizes. The prizes are posted at the bottom of this post.

Take a look at the awesome inspiration our DT has given us this week, and visit their blogs for a full recipe!

Viv has crafted a little picnic basket that completely blew us away! You HAVE to see her blog for more pics! She used PK-239.

Reminiscent of check napkins and tablecloths in an antique photograph, Lorie has a delightful card using PK-229.

Janice has paper pieced this picnic basket using the perfect combo of pattern paper and color scheme. Love the inking as well! She used PK-249, & PK-034.

We totally got a kick out of Nikki's pistachios! In fact, I'm still laughing! She used PK-08 and PK-753.

Emma also made me giggle with those mushrooms and eggs who don't want to be cooked!! To make her nervous ingredients, she used PK-531, PK-546, PK-271 and PK-540.

This sounds sooo delicious! Love the title! Sonia whipped up this bright & cheery card using PK-221, PK-239 and some of our Funshine Face parts!

This "Sunny Apple Salad" recipe sounds delish from Heidi!! She used PK-531 & PK-640 to bring her carrots and apples to life!

Wheee! Another super fun card from Samantha! She used PK-531 and PK-239 to create this whimsical scene!

In case you didn't want to read the recipe first, Lisa has made all the ingredients look absolutely delicious for her recipe card!! She used PK-239, PK-531 and PK-540.

Remember this challenge will have one JUDGED winner and one RANDOM winner, so please be sure to enter by June 6th for two chances to win!

Challenge 27 Winner!

Sorry I'm running a little late posting this everyone! Our designers are on a bye week, so we'll have the next challenge posted next Tuesday, May 10th.

I am so happy to announce our winner for Challenge #27 - 15. Glora! Glora's card captured the color palette beautifully and her detail work was amazing. We loved the crisp, clean, and elegant look of her card. There were so many contenders, that choosing "just one" is always hard.

Glora, please send me your email address and I'll get your gift certificate right out to you. Thanks so much everyone for playing along, come back next week for Challenge 28 and a special surprise!

Happy Stampin!
Hugs, Angelica
