WELCOME TO CUTTING CAFE WEEK!!!
I'm super excited to get started, but as you know, I have some business to take care of. Now, we've had several new people joining in this week, so it's a good time to review some of the 365 rules.
Every Sunday we acknowledge three super fabulous card makers for their amazing creations, whom we refer to as the Top Trio. They get to add the very cool Card of the Week blinkie (found over on the sidebar) to their blogs. Then we acknowledge those devoted and hard-working 365ers who have completed every challenge from the past Sunday thru Saturday.
Although I post a new challenge everyday, you can go back and try any challenge you wish at anytime. Sometimes you have to complete a challenge or set of challenges within a set period of time in order to qualify for a contest (such as COTW), but I will be sure to make clear when those times are. Otherwise, you can always join in for fun!
So let's congratulate this week's Top Trio:
1) Deanne - for a stunning take on the Sunday sketch.
2) Chiara_francy - for her beautiful edges to go with an equally beautiful card.
3) Kristen - for an adorable card/envelope combo.
Please feel free to grab the COTW blinkie for your blogs.
And thank you to those who came back each and every day to provide your take on each challenge:
Chrissie, Sherry Ann, Michelle M., Fi, Hazel, Chiara_francy, Shari, Audrey, Maz, Tommie, Birgit, Vickilyn, Made by Mandy, Linda B., Ginny, Rose M., Ivolina and Debbie S.
Did I miss anyone? Let me know and I'll update the list.
Now back to our very exciting week of challenges. Our fabulous sponsor is Regina Easter from The Cutting Cafe.
The Cutting Cafe offers affordable Printable Stamps and Cutting Files....No more waiting on the mailman and no more trying to organize a section in your scrap area for rubber/clear stamps.
Regina was kind enough to provide two sets of stamps for the design team to work with. Today we feature printable images from the All About Cupcakes set combined with the Sunday sketch. I must tell you how wonderful these images are. They are so easy to work with, and they print off beautifully, whether you're printing on solid or patterned paper.
Here is the sketch and DT examples:
What is the prize? Regina will provide you with a FREE stamp set!! And the best part is that you don't have to wait for snail mail to receive them.
So let's get the week rolling with your take on the sketch~
