STAMPIN' FOR THE WEEKEND challenge #1!

YIPPEE!!! It's finally here......LAUNCH DAY for Stampin' for the Weekend. I feel like I have been waiting for this day for ages! :) The prize for the winner of this first ever challenge has been sponsored by Kimmi and Donna and there is a huge amount up for grabs.

For our first challenge entitled "From Dusk to Dawn", we're asking you to make a card or some other project using the color scheme of Purple and Yellow, a color theme not normally seen, but it does look gorgeous together.


On my card I used one of The greetings farm supper cute wild sprouts. I colored her using a mixture of promarkers and sakura stardust pens for a touch of glitter. she has been cut out leaving a white border and mounted on the backing paper with foam pads so she stands out more. All papers used on my card are from Designers Extreme Vol . The sentiment I have made with ticker tape, the flowers and gems are from my stash.

The rest of the DT are soooo tallented and have created amazing cards for you so be sure to hop around their blogs the can all be found in my side bar.

For this week, with it being our first challenge, Kim and Donna have put together a lovely prize with lots of crafting goodies and even chocolates for our first winner. So if you fancy your chances.....please join us. Look forward to seeing you there.
