Challenge #3 - Let's see some PURPLE!

That's today's challenge - much to Dalis' dismay! Of course, I chose the challenge, so she's just got to suck it up and deal with it.

So - PURPLE - any shade, any amount. We just want to see purple on your card - well, that and AT LEAST one other challenge!  And yes, we have added Mr. Linky for easy management of the submissions.  Remember to put DT next to your name if you want to be considered for the DT (more information HERE!)  oh and Direct Links only on Mr. Linky, THANKS!

I will apologize in advance for the photo - my light source is ABOVE my cards, so I get a shadow whenever I ribbon the top like this. Here's mine:

  • Pile It On! (Obviously) - use purple! The ribbon is purple, the gems at the bottom are purple, the flower and the D in Friends are all purple. (Almost Amethyst to be exact on the flower and D)
  • Charisma Cards asked for sparkly. Their challenge is titled as Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend.
  • Three Clovers asked for a NO LAYER card. Now - most of you may notice I don't generally stamp. With a one layer card - and she was specific - you can embellish all you want - but NO EXTRA PAPER OR CARDSTOCK - what else was I going to do???

And now for Dalis and her BEAUTIFUL creation! She claims she doesn't like and can't work with purple - I TOTALLY disagree!!



And what you've all been waiting for - here are this week's TOP THREE SCOOPS!! You will each get a gift certificate for $10 to Savvy N Sassy! Ladies, please grab your blinkie!! (and Dalis did redesign the blinkie - so for the three of you who won last week, you can replace it with this one if you wish)

Copy the following code on your blog to add the blinkie.

Lesley - for this card:

Timi - for this layout:

Maureen - for this card:

And for the $10 Gift Certificate chosen by RANDOM.ORG is #68 - Ann!!! (Raindropecho)


Ladies - please email us for the information for the gift certificates!


And we are actually giving out a special award this week.   This award is an unexpected project that goes way beyond, you know like when you ask for an ice cream and your friend comes w/ a cone of your favorite ice cream and tops it with sprinkles JUST FOR YOU!  It won't be given out all the time though - just when we find the "Unexpected). Shari - be sure to grab your new blinkie!!


Copy the following code on your blog to add the blinkie.

to Shari for this project:

We can't wait to see your creations this week!!
