Twisted Thursday Challenge #3!!


It's that time of the week again, when those zany ladies from Shirley's 2 Girls want to challenge stampers everywhere to participate in their fun sketch challenges. And of course it's called "Twisted Thursday" because there is a twist to the sketch. This week's twist is to ADD HARDWARE. We'd love to have you all play along with us! If you have Shirley's 2 Girls stamps, please use them!! We'd love to see what you do with them. If you don't own any S2G stamps (YET! hehehe), we'd still love for you to play along with us. Please create a project using this week's sketch AND add hardware (brads, clips, staples, or any other type of metal hardware that you might have in your stash!). Upload your project to your favorite online gallery - if you upload to SCS or PCP, please use the keywords S2GSC3 AND shirleys2girls. Then post a direct link to your creation in a comment ON THIS POST. The winner will be chosen using Random.org, so everyone has a chance to win. You wanna know what you can win if you play along? Well, those sweet ladies at Shirley's 2 Girls have offered up a stamp of your choice from all the fun images that they carry, AND your card will be showcased here on my blog AND in the Shirley's 2 Girls Gallery. Pretty sweet, huh? So, what the heck are you waiting for?!! Run, don't walk, to your craft room and create something fabulous for this week's Twisted Thursday challenge! The challenge runs from today (3/19/09) until midnight (PDT) on Sunday, 3/22/09. Need some inspiration?


Well, here's my sample. The image I used is called "Cat On the Fence" (SG 603). Isn't she just the cutest? I used some fun designer paper from Shirley's 2 Girls "Dream Package." I just love the quirkiness and fun of both the colors as well as the images, don't you?!! Need more inspiration? Check out the fun creations of the rest of the Shirley's 2 Girls Design Team. These ladies rock, so get ready to have your socks knocked off!!

Wowzers, Karolyn! This is a beauty -- look at all the neat detailing! Love the clip with bow, use of DP and perfectly colored image. You nailed it!

Terri said...

This is a darling card, another super cute image and well, that paper is "to die for". Great job, love it!

Karolyn, another fun sketch. I have it on my "to do" list. I like the cute digital images, too. Didn't know S2G was going to offer digital. Love your pattern papers and the "jacqueline" ribbon treatment on this. The colors were perfect with that image. I need to look for him.

Your card is just so cute!! Great job!

Ok, here's my card:
... Joyful Stamper: Twisted Thursday

This made me realize, I don't have alot of hardware!!!! I used a simple brad, then I found a circular paperclip which I attached a bit of ribbon, however, I forgot to put it on and blogger was giving me so much trouble, I gave up....so there's just the brad!:( Well, just picture the clip in the lower righthand corner....LOL!
I spread the word with a link on my blog...hope you get a bunch of challenge takers!
I posted the card to my blog and will upload it to SCS later today!
Thanks, Blessings, Maria

Now how great is that - a S2G image to use!! I'm hoping to have my own S2G images to play with for the next twisted challenge.

Got my card done just in time - I was away most of the weekend and I needed to work finishing my taxes before I could play :)
