Featured Stamper #134

I hate Monday nights. You know why? Because that’s when I have to pick the Featured Stamper and give some shout outs. Now, the FS is random, so that’s easy, but how do I just give a few shout outs when there are so many wonderful handmade, and heartfelt creations out there? And just because I mention three doesn’t mean I didn’t like any others…or all of them! Okay, without further adieu…

Featured Stamper and the Purple Onion prize winner this week is…

Emily!!!

How cute is this? I love those simple flowers with the tiny gems and the stitched rays on the sun! Congrats Emily! Email me at affiecatt@optonline.net with your mailing address and also for your featured stamper badge!

Okay, now here’s three other beauties you should be checking out if you haven’t already!

Nuria So simple and primitive!

Lynne Too cute to be scary!

Marcy I love those fish lips!!!!

Thank you so much for joining us for another week at the Color Throwdown! Check back tomorrow for another challenge!

Color Throwdown #133


Hi friends. Kristin here challenging you to throw down some more color this week! I was inspired by a tissue box I had sitting next to me with the cutest floral pattern on it when I selected this palette...wish I had a photo to share, but I don't :[ I also don't have a card to share right now because I'm tending to my sweet puppy who had surgery yesterday. I hope to remedy that sometime today though :] Fortunately, our fabulous DT and guest designer have some BEAUTIFUL projects to share with you! Check em out:

Color Throwdown #132


Hello, everyone! Broni here and I'm hosting this week's Color Throwdown challenge! When I chose the above color combo, I had a beach scene in mind (surprised?), but then I went in a complete different direction, focusing on spring.

We hope you'll play along with us. You can find all the details and rules in the right hand column, but basically just use colors very closely resembling the ones chosen on a new creation, and add a direct link to your blog post containing that creation. If you don't have a blog, that's fine. Upload to an online gallery, using the keyword CTD132 and link that card below using the Linky tool.

I can't wait to see what you come up with!
