It's a rainy, grey, HUMID Monday here in South Jersey. What a weekend, though! Temperatures were over NINETY degrees, plus loads of humidity. What's the weather like in your neck of the woods? Hopefully you've all enjoyed a restful weekend, ideally JAM-PACKED with crafty fun, and getting your Elements and Sketch challenges done, since you still have a WEE bit of time for those!
The April COLOR CHALLENGES, however, have wrapped, up, and we are SO pleased to have seen so many amazing creations from friends and visitors to the Dollhouse! :)
Out of 67 entries (WOO HOO!), I can't tell you how much TALENT and CREATIVE GENIUS we had floating throughout the blogosphere! But the gods (aka the randomizer at random.org) have spoken, and the winner of the April prize pack is the very LOYAL girl who gave us THIS little beauty:
Lucky #3 - TINA!
Congrats, girlie! If you'd be so kind as to EMAIL ME, Leah, with your snail mail addy, I will happily send your hard-earned prize out!
And it's time for us to kick things off for our MAY challenges (can you believe we're 1/3 of the way through 2010 already?!)...
Let's see what you can do with THIS tough combo:
PINK, CREAM and ORANGE
Yeah, I know... even *I* had issues with this one for some reason! And i love the pink and orange! I think the cream threw me off a bit. But my sister Dollies rocked it all, as always! Wanna see?
The brilliant KATE gave us this gorgeous page - yummy flowery goodness!
and our other Aussie-Dollie, Melissa, tossed in THIS piece of DELISH distressy genius:
and here's me, Leah the Orange, with my very humble card:
So I suppose you'll want to know what the prize will be for this month's Color Challenges, right? Oh, all right... How about this?
Basic Grey "Offbeat" 6x6 pad, chipboard letter stack (there are, like, a BAZILLION pieces in here!), brads (*I LOVE THIS LINE!*)
lengths of green leaves, green mini ball trim, blue and brown ribbon
So. If this appeals to you in any way, shape or form, you must PLAY WITH THE DOLLIES! Today is your first chance to get in on the action, so create a NEW project for this challenge, link it up below (the blog POST, not your general blog, please!), and be sure to link BACK to us in order to be eligible to win! You have until next SUNDAY, May 9th at midnight EST to play along for this one! Have fun, and happy crafting!
