Use wrapping paper on your card.
This could be easy, unless you're like me and you prefer gift bags and you don't have a lot of wrapping paper in your house.
Tammy's is so fun that you don't even know it's wrapping paper. Check it out:

Back to business...
Here is our Top Trio from the past week:
1)Kelly Becker - For a beautifully pieced together card that made quite a scene.
2)Mojo Hugs - For this simply stunning silhouette.
3)Karin Hoag (aka Crafty Girl) - for simply stamping and glittering a gorgeous butterfly.
Congrats to you all and thanks for contributing such wonderful creations to the gallery, and you may grab the COTW blinkie for your blogs!
For those who completed all the week's challenges, way to go! Here is who I have, and please let me know if I have missed you on this list:
For those who are new to the blog, please be sure to double-check that you are linked up to the right day. I would be happy to delete any mistaken links if you leave me a note in the comments.
Today's challenges is about the seasons - all four of them! I don't know about you, but I've lived in a few places where I could swear that there are only 2 seasons - Summer and Winter. However, my calendar says otherwise, so I thought this would make a fun challenge:
And a beautiful sentiment to go along with the images! I think this challenge can be really fun, and it is wide open to interpretation...the challenge police will take a break on this one ;)

Let's see what Vicky did:
Definitely a winner here, Vicky. This turned out so cool, especially with this sort of image. I think I have a lot of stamps in my stash that I want to try with this with. How about you? No stamps that work? Well get out the scissors then ;)

But seriously folks - who knew my little challenge would cause so much excitement? Not me, but y'all had me laughing raucously for hours, so thank you for that. If you are just joining us, check out the comments from yesterday's post...
And so, we arrive at today's challenge, which is to create a frame on your card. That's it, otherwise anything goes.
Let's see what Sophie did:

One stamped image and one stamped sentiment - that's it. You can color in the image and use any color of card stock - no patterned paper and no other embellishments!
Ah yes, a true challenge indeed :)
But I think you know by now that Amy was up for the challenge:
Oh yeah - here's Mr. Linky~

This is Kristie's take on the challenge:

You may recall seeing some cards with this technique when we featured digital images from the Cutting Cafe on our cards. You can print an image on plain or patterned paper, mixing and matching colors and patterns to create a complete image. You can stamp on the paper or cut it freehand. Die cutting machines can also be used to piece together images. It can be time-consuming, but the final product is well worth it.
Here is Tammy's card:
If you've never tried it before, then this is a great time to try the technique - we can't wait to see what you come up with!

This is the specific challenge: The word "Girl" must be somewhere on the card - and make the card very girly!
Have I said 'girl' enough yet?
Here is Gloria's card for this challenge:
So very feminine and pretty!
