Shirley’s 2 Girls TWISTED THURSDAY!!

I’m THRILLED to be hosting the very first Twisted Thursday for Shirley’s 2 Girls, a fabulous new stamp company! S2G’s images are so cute, sassy and sooooo much fun to color and create with! For now, the Twisted Thursday challenges will be sketch challenges. This may change in the future, but doesn’t everyone just love a good sketch?!! So, for now that’s what it is. We call this TWISTED Thursday because it’s a sketch challenge, with a “twist.”


How easy is this sketch?!! And I feel it lends itself to lots of creativity! Feel free to add additional elements or to flip or turn the sketch, just so long as the main elements are there and in an arrangement as close to this layout as possible. To participate, create a card using Shirley's 2 Girls stamps [or your favorite stamps if you don't own any S2G stamps YET] and upload your creation to your favorite online galleries and/or your blog. If you upload your card to Splitcoast Stampers and/or Papercraft Planet, please use keywords S2GSC2 and shirleys2girls. Then leave a comment here on my blog with a direct link to your creation. The challenge starts today (3-12-09) and ends on Sunday, 3-15-09 at 12:00 a.m. PDT. I will let “” choose a winner. The winner's creation will be showcased here on my blog and on the Shirley's 2 Girls store blog for all to see! AND you get to choose a stamp from the amazing line of Shirley's 2 Girls stamp line. How cool is that?!!

Here's my sample. Isn't that the funkiest chicken you ever did see?!! This set is called "Cheers To You (SG201)" and is a set of three stamps - the main image, the chicken scratch, and the sentiment. And coloring him is just too much fun for words!

Wanna see more inspiration? Then check out the other Shirley's 2 Girls DT blogs - they'll knock your socks off!!
