It’s Monday, and I’m here with a new challenge for you from our Woodware USA design team! Bonnie Rose has had to leave the team, and we will truly miss her. However, the show must go on, and I will be kicking off the challenges each Monday from now on! Normally, I’m a hide in bed on Monday mornings, but here I am, and I’m ready to go.

This week’s challenge is to use GLITTER and BLING in your creations. Well, sometimes I feel like I came out of the womb destined to be glittery! And, the way I find little specks all over my house, I think that I still haven’t lost my glitz!

I have used the adorable set—Penguin Fun for my card today, and it is a fun one! I also coupled it with some marvelous Christmas paper from My Mind’s Eye. I’ve also greatly distressed as many edges as I could! We hope that you will join us and play along!!


Next, I have my card from last week’s challenge—paper piecing. I have used the adorable Mary and Friends for my inspiration today. My usual day to post was this past Saturday, but I decided to just run the two together. If I could have paper pieced the girl’s skin, I would have. Everything else is paper-pieced using Green at Heart by Basic Grey. I just love that paper, and I was able to use my scraps on this one! The cardstock colors are Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry by Stampin’ Up. I used an EK Success border punch and some SU ribbon and punches.
Check back tomorrow for more design team inspiration!!
