Summer Fun

Hello, everyone! Terri here to announce our next challenge "Summer Fun". It feels so good to be back with the Sisterhood and to finally have warm weather. I love sitting in the backyard with a nice cool beverage and just enjoying the warmth of the sun.

Before I tell you about our new challenge, we at the Sisterhood are sadly having to say GOOD BYE to our long time "Sistah" Lisa B.   Her personal life has just become too busy with a new full time job, a set of young twin daughters that keep her hopping and just all the other stuff that goes along with a family & job.  We will miss Lisa B and her fabulous designs but totally understand her decision!
Best of Luck to you Lisa B.   
You are welcome back anytime!   


The challenge today is to make a project showcasing your favorite activity of summer. 

SUMMER TIME FUN

Do you like baseball, tennis, swimming, picnics, gardening? I'm sure you have lots of ideas running through you mind, so get started and share your beautiful creations with us.

For a little extra inspiration, here are the projects by the Design team.

No Designer Paper

Good morning to all my crafty friends! Lisa B. here today to host the new challenge at the Sisterhood. I have been having fun making my own backgrounds, or simply not using designer paper.  Which is where I got the idea for the challenge today!

For this challenge we are asking you to 
get creative and make a project with NO Designer paper. You can create your own design with stencils, stamps, watercolor etc. but no pre-printed paper. Our Sistah's have crafted up some amazing projects to get your crafty gears going. Thank you to my wonderful Sistah's for coming up with some amazing examples!


Lisa
To create this card I used a combination of stamps, digi's, dies and a few embellishments.  What is hard to tell from the photo is the white background I created a lattice design with my score board.  

Darlene
Don't you  just love all the colorful butterflies paired up with the different designs! Really makes it POP! Darlene surely created such a bright card which will surely put a smile on the face of the person lucky enough to get this card!

Diane created such a stunning design on this card.  It is so elegant and classy. She pulled off a CAS with so much style! Love that butterfly and vine embossing folder!


Check out this beautiful creation from Agata! Love the CAS design on this one.  Especially the doilie and music note!


Vickie created this dazzling card with only two colors!  Something I struggle with, but she sure did pull it off!  Such a fun and beautiful card.





Thank you all for coming by today! I sure hope you play along with us for this challenge.  I love getting inspiration from you all!

Have a great day!
HAPPY CRAFTING!
