COMMENTING...

If you see that you are not getting comments from us, it is because of the silly "PROVE THAT YOU ARE NOT A ROBOT" on Blogger. There are only certain number of times you can comment and then you have to start proving you're not a robot. Really irritating when you have to click through picture after picture to try and leave a comment to our beautiful entries. So sorry about this. We wish Blogger would change this.

August Challenge!!!

Happy August Everyone! Can you believe we're about halfway through the summer?  I hope it's been nice weather for you!

Here's our challenge for August.... Since many of us have had a lot of heat this summer, we're going to cool things down with SNOWFLAKES!  Yes, as some of you guessed from the sneaks, your cards this month need to have snowflakes of some kind - in the paper, embellishments, stamping or whatever you like!

Check out these wonderful creations from our Design Team:





























Our Guest Designer - Trish

My name is Trish Hughes. I love being a mother to twin boys and a wife. While I enjoy making cards and scrapbooking for every occasion, I truly love creating Christmas projects. Which just happens to be my favorite time of year. And here is her card...


 *Remember if you do 5 cards this month following the challenge, your name will go into a draw for a prize at the end of AUGUST! (this challenge CAN be combined with any other blog or forum challenges that you do this month.)


This month the RAK is another great set from SU!

Please upload your cards to your blog, a gallery, or photobucket and remember to give us the EXACT links to see them. You can do 5 of the same cards or 5 different ones (as long as they follow the current challenge) If you do 5 of the same, please show us a picture of them altogether. Thanks!


YOU NEED TO LET US KNOW IN THIS POST WHEN YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE 5 CARDS IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE MONTHLY PRIZE.

***Also, if at least 20 people create 5 cards I will pick a second winner!***

We can't wait and see what you create this month! Have fun!

Colleen and Lesley

Wow! Can't believe how the participation has increased last month and this! Such fantastic cards showing up here! It's hard to see on my cards, but the snowflakes are on the bg using my Cuttlebug Snowflake die!
