Challenge #317 - A Recipe for Robbie Burns

Our Design Team member, Jane, cooked up this recipe challenge and it reminded me, because of the dominant element, of good old Scotland and the celebration of Scotland's own poet, Robbie Burns, just about a month ago, on January 23. I don't know which weaver came up with the plaid design, but they were ingenious. Imagine how complicated that could be to keep up with on a loom! Have fun with this recipe, and we can't wait to see how you use all 5 of these elements! 

You have to include all the elements in the recipe on your creation, but how you do that is up to you! Have fun and start your ovens, er...stamp sets!

Winners for Challenge #316 - Yes, I Do Need a Bigger Craft Room

What fun we had, reading all about your recent additions to your craft rooms and then getting to see what they could do! It was well worth the reading! We loved the variety of cards we had entered! Here are our winners:

Our Top Pick is: Johanna from LHC

We were really taken, as a Design Team, with Johanna's dramatic black and white design using those amazing dies, which are a new addition to her craft room. The positive and negative aspects of the design are perfectly balanced and the black and white really showcases them well. The addition of the sparkles added an extra dimension! Congratulations, Johanna!

Our Featured Artist is: Lee Ann Barrett

Lee Ann's stunning blue bird design using her new dies was a real eye catcher. The combination of the rays of the die cuts with the spattered background which was echoed on the spattered wings of the bluebird was so compelling! Add to that the perfect sentiment on a distressed panel and you have a Featured Artist's work of art! Beautiful card, Lee Ann!
