craft challenge giveaway!


First off, thank you to everyone who decided to play along with the FIRST monthly craft challenge during the month of February. I loved all of the ideas you shared and I hope that others were also inspired by your creativity. It's my desire to be inspired and to inspire, and that's why I will be continuing to host the monthly craft challenges. I like creating things that are simple, so I will never challenge you to do anything crazy and complicated! (I only attempt that kind of thing once or twice in a blue moon.) So, if you're up for the challenge, join us for this month's challenge!

But, before I go into more detail for next month's challenge...it's time to reveal the giveaway winner! There were 6 ladies who participated, and if you haven't checked out their creations yet, please go visit HERE. A lot of great things were shared and you don't want to miss it! Who knew there were so many uses for a circle scalloped punch?

Disclaimer: My hopes for the first giveaway was to actually create something because it seems logical with it being a CRAFT challenge and all, but unfortunately my sickness and the busy-ness of life got in the way, so instead one lucky winner will be receiving a set of 12 notecards (3 different styles/colors) and 8 small notecards (4 different styles/colors) to use as she pleases! I think these are the cutest little things and they remind me of being homemade, so does that work?


My trusty little helper drew a name for me. I promise it was legite. I just didn't want to figure out how to tackle anything complicated. It was easy enough with only 6 names to write them out and throw them in a bowl.

The winner is Katie at A Listmaker's Life. Congratulations and when you get a chance, send me an e-mail with your mailing address, and I'll get those in the mail...they're all ready to go!


*****************************************

Onto the next item of business: If you hadn't already seen the sneak peek for next month's challenge from a couple of days ago, the newest embellishment you'll need to get creative with is...

BUTTONS!

I'm pretty sure there is some amazing stuff that can be created out of these things...I've already seen a few creations floating around blog land. I'll be back to inspire you with some ideas within the next couple of weeks, but in the meantime, start getting crafty!!

We'll start linking up on Thursday, April 2nd and you'll have one more week after that. I can't guarantee a giveaway, but you never know...
