Happy July to one and all! WOW...can you believe it...we are starting our SECOND year of the Create with Connie & Mary Thursday challenge with a design team! (Connie and I did start a month before but we'll consider this the start of our second year.) WOOOO HOOOO!!! How fun is that?
We'd like to say a BIG THANK YOU to Erica Cerwin for her design work over the past few months! We LOVE her work and we know you did too! Carrie Gaskin is not leaving us but has a very busy summer coming up. She will join us when she can, but will be back permanently in October! We also want to say a big 'HELLO' to Nance Leedy (yep...she was subbing a bit the end of last month) and to our newest member...Renee Van Stralen! WOOOO HOOO!!!
Well, we have a SPECIAL challenge for you today!
What is this??? Two challenges at once???? Well...yes...that is what you see but there are a couple special things to go with this.
You see many of us will be attending the Stampin' Up! Convention next week so we decided to do something different. First...this challenge will run for TWO WEEKS!!!
Now...you can do just the color, or just the sketch or you can do them BOTH together! The choice is yours! Also...if you want, the sketch could easily be made into a circle card so you have ANOTHER option for you too. Now...isn't that cool? So...to recap...
- challenge lasts TWO WEEKS
- you can do just color
- or do just sketch
- or do both together
- or make the sketch into a circle card
So, to get you started, here is what the design team came up with...
Connie Babbert - Inkspired Treasures

Carrie Gaskin - Artistic Avenger
Deb Currier - ARTfelt Impressions
