This was a Challenge on Shelli Garner's Creative Challenge blog. I love this challenge blog because, duh, it's Shelli's. Plus she gives a free stamp set to the winners. Woot!
The Challenge was to show off your product from the new Catalog that came out in Aug 2011 and if you know me, you know I was already itching to do just that!
Here's Shelli's post announcing ME as a winner! Gosh. Its just so special knowing that Shelli looked at my blog AND liked my stuff. So cool!

I really like this blog because it gives a little taste of everything from theme and color challenges and sketches, to clean and simple and even anything goes. I love the variety and of course the Design Team is fantastically talented. Its no wonder this blog has grown so popular so fast!
Here is the post announcing me as one of the challenge winners.

I have been playing along with this blog FOREVER!!! I submitted my first card in November 2009 when my blog was brand new and so was PPA. Winning this has become a bit of an obsession after 2 years of trying so yes, I was pretty stinking thrilled about it. And to add an extra level of difficulty, they only choose 3 winners, and about a trillion stampers submit here each week. It was tough and it took a long time but I feel like this has helped me become a better stamper and artist. Totally worth it!
Here is the post announcing me as one of 3 challenge winners. If you listen closely to this page you might still hear my squeals of delight at finally winning.

Freshly Made Sketches
Here is my original post from October 13, 2011.
This is a newer Challenge Blog that is a bit more specific than most that I play along with. They focus on clean cards and sketches. And since sketches are particularly hard for me this is a great way to practice and I like the clean bright designs of the cards the design team comes up with. Sometimes I feel pressure to messy up my cards with lots and lots of stuff, but not here. Its all about the card and the sketch. I like that. It makes sense why after only a few short weeks this blog is already really popular!
