Here is Kristie's take:
You can make the card as busy as you want, just keep it in the designated areas ;)

That is a perfect image and sentiment to use with this technique - great example, Vicky!
For the month of September, the person who completes the most challenges will win a prize. If there is a tie, a drawing will be held to determine the winner. Usually I award the winner with a package of scrappy goodness, but this month we have a fabulous new sponsor for this prize. The lucky winner will receive a scholarship/gift certificate for a class from My Creative Classroom! I'll provide more details next week, but for now you can pop over there and check out this wonderful site.

Here's what Amy came up with:
Day 99 (June 7th) Super Sketchy Sunday
Day 149 (July 27th) Sponging technique (on the pennants)
Day 158 (August 5th) Use a sign on the card (the pennants)
This is a festive and fun combo card, thanks Amy! Now to be perfectly clear, you DO NOT have to use the 3 challenges Amy chose - the challenge combo is up to you as long as it meets the requirements for the challenge.
For those who played along when those challenges were originally posted, have fun going back and combining your favorites!

This time, it's gotta be patterned paper. You can do this any way you want, but you have to start with a clean slate, so-to-speak.
Here is Kristie's stunning piece of work:
Don't shy away from this challenge - it doesn't have to be fancy, you just have to Do-it-Yourself!

I'll be settling in with my cup of coffee and looking back at all the cards from the past week and getting tomorrow's post ready~

Oooooooh - that black against the white and red background is really striking, Vicky - wonderful example!
I know there are lots of symbols of luck out there (because I Googled it), so this one shouldn't be too tough.
I'll be back tomorrow with another sketch~

The challenge is to take inspiration from your favorite fairy tale - well, actually, any one will do even if it's not your favorite.
High on my list of fairy tales is the story of the frog prince. And so, I have been inspired to create this card:
I really tried to keep it as masculine as possible, but I just had to throw in some bling! I can't wait to read about how your favorite fairy tales inspire your cards~

1)Tesa - for a stunning recipe card with a delicious blend of "ingredients".
2)Pamela S. Wade - we love how the song inspired your lacey card.
3)Carolyn - we agree that this is indeed a very clever interpretation of the sketch.
And the Weekly Challenge All-Stars:
There were so many wonderful entries this past week that we had a great time looking through them all. I noticed that a few of you even popped over to Sassy Studio's shop and picked up an image or two - and I can't blame you a bit!
So how about that winner? Here she is....................
Congratulations!!! You've won FOUR digital images from Sassy Studio Designs. Please email me with your choices and we'll get those sent off to you!
Thanks to Lindsay Dyer for sharing these gorgeous digital images with us this past week, it was truly a pleasure for us to work with them!
So today's challenge is to create a mosaic. Now you can do this a couple of ways. Nice clean cuts of paper to create even shapes OR lots of different shapes, sizes and patterns. Either way you choose to do it, piece together a mosaic on your card.
Here's what Gloria came up with:
It think we're going to see some really cool cards on this one~

And here's the specific challenge: Using a stamped image (ink or digi), use black on white, and just add a touch of color somewhere. I'm going with the "less is more" theory on this one!
And Vicky has set a beautiful example for us!!
Get those entries submitted for this week by 11:59 PM tonight to be included in the drawing. The winner will be announced on Monday's post. Thanks to all who have joined us this week :)

Today's challenge is all about Gingham. But you won't be surprised, I'm sure that this is not a simple challenge. Create a piece of clothing with gingham as the pattern. You can stamp it, print a digital image, hand-draw it, or whatever you wish to do.
Sophie used an image called Party Dress from the Sassy Accessories collection:
One more day of Sassy Studio Designs Week, so get those entries in~

Amy chose to work with an image aptly titled "www. sassy", from the I'm Every Woman Collection. And so, I thought of technology as a source of inspiration.
Here is Amy's card:
I'm loving the mix of blue and red, not to mention the fun patterned paper you selected for this card, Amy!
So........how does technology inspire you?

Here is today's recipe:
4 different patterned papers
1 stamped (ink or digital) image
The sentiment is up to you
Here is Kristie's final product:
Oh, I just love the use of patterned paper on the dress - fab card, Kristie!
Truthfully, this is probably my favorite challenge type, because you all manage to produce so many amazing variations on one "recipe". I can't wait to see your takes on this one!
