Feature Friday Challenge #25 – Rectangle

Hey bloggers,

Kelly and I are filling in this week… Queenie has had to take a leave from our team for a bit, but hopefully, we’ll see her back here sometime?!

This weeks’ challenge is to create a Rectangular card.  Simple enough, however, Kelly and I didn’t do it the way the challenge was set out (I mean, Kelly didn’t… LOL) and well, we didn’t have time to re-do our card, so we’re going to share it anyway!

The actual measurements for your card should be 8.5” x 4" according to the details set our by our fearless DT Coordinator, Fink!!!  Well, our card is rectangular???

Here it is…

fredrik-cufredrik Gotta love the glass effects look huh?

And, attempting to also do up a rectangular card is Lola, with this creation…


Margie did up this Bon Voyage creation…


And our Ancient one, Sara did up this cutie for us…


Deanette came up with this creation…


So it looks as though we didn’t quite manage to get this right… (well, most of us).  I’d love for you to show us up and actually create this rectangle card the way Fink meant it to be :)   I have faith that you all will do just fine too!!!

The prize this week is Thief Gerrard and Argh Matey, a $5 Gift Certificate for The Cafe Store as well as a winners blog badge.

Also, if you’re just joining us, you can also find us on Facebook, CDAC, AiFactory and 50/50 group, so if you’re at any of these, look us up!!!

Happy crafting,

Kendra (& Kelly)

July Blog hop Winners

Hey there crafters ... hope your having a great Thursday trying to stay cool. ( I guess that depends where you live )

It's that time again ... to announce the winners from our blog hop.

Our Grand Prize goes to... comment # 6 Shannon ~ Desert Designs picked by wins the image "Spott" & "Walk on the Beach" + a $5.00 gift certificate from the store.
Shannon, please contact us so we can send you your prize.

Our DT members will announce their winners on their individual blogs, so you might want to stop by and see if you're a winner of the image they used.

We had a little problem regarding our Blog Hop Challenge. In order to have a chance at being our next month's Guest DT you were to create anything using a TCC image. We were a little short on participants this past week and the ones that did participate must have missed that part about requiring a TCC image (OOOPS!!)... anyway, so we are going to go back through our last DT call applicants and pick someone from there to ask to be our Guest DT.

Now for our custom digi winner picked by ( in order from the first participant to the last) from all the challenge participants for the month of June. We had 25 particpants this month ...up from 18 for May ( hey it's still growth, hee,hee )

Congratulations goes to Irit ~ Irit Shalom's Designs, you are our Custom Digital Stamp Image WINNER. You may give us a design request or picture and we will do our best to create a custom digi stamp for you based on your vision. We will do up to 3 revisions for you in order to get it "right" and in the end, you can name the digi stamp (a variation may be necessary if we already have a stamp with your chosen name)! We will retain the rights to the stamp and offer it for sale in The Cafe Store with all proceeds going to the Charity of your Choice for the next 4 months!
Can't wait to get started Irit! We'll be sending you an e-mail, however, again, if you see this feel free to send us one first if you haven't gotten ours yet :)

Okay bloggers, go check out this weeks' challenge and be sure to come back weekly and you too could win a Custom TCC digi with proceeds to your fav charity or maybe win some Free TCC digis through the challenge!!!

Happy crafting,
Kelly & Kendra
