March Challenge Results!

Hi All!

I hope everyone had a peaceful and relaxing Easter. At my house, we ate all 3 meals together – breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With 2 teenagers, that’s a huge gift. 🙂

Thank you to everyone who participated in the March Pastel Challenge! There were lots of entries this month! I encourage you to check them out when you have some time.

This month’s random winner of the Simon Says Stamp $25 gift voucher is entry #60 by SuzanneMB. Congrats Suzanne, I emailed you!

Now for some highlights… the first is my favorite of the whole collection, made by Connie:


She used pastels to color over an embossed image, which she masked to the correct shape. I love how it highlights the words in all the colors – just beautiful!

Next is for you knitters out there. A card by Hannah:


What a great idea! So dang cute. A perfect baby card.

Next I have a couple of beautifully colored flower cards. The first is a watercolor card by Sherry W:

I know how much work went into the card, and it looks gorgeous!

The second was colored with Prismacolor pencils by Maria:


I love the blue on the petal bases as well as the tips – it’s so lovely!

Thank you again to everyone who submitted their cards. I’ll be back shortly with the launch of the April Dry Embossing Challenge!

    Thank you so much Darlene for highlighting my card this month. I was really surprised but delighted to read this because there were so many wonderful card entries in March with such a fantastic overall turnout. Congratulations too SuzanneMB for winning the SSS $25 voucher. I know you’ll put it to very good use.

    Congrats SuzanneMB, your card was my favourite actually! I cased it on the weekend with the Delfina layering dies and used purple of course! Love all of the cards this month and left it too late to enter my pastel easter cards, but will definitely enter the dry emboss challenge!😎

    Congratulations Suzanne! That card is a real knock-out! And thank you, Darlene for highlighting my card as well. It was so timely! The lovely lady who knitted the little sweaters is visiting her sister (my friend) and I was able to show her your kind comments as well as the ones from other members! You guys are the best!!
