Hey y'all!!

Welcoem to another Mod Squad challenge for you! I about forgot that I had today's...Lee gave me a gentle poke to remind me! :D

Sooo, can you guess what the challenge will be by the title? No? Well, its easy really! You will need to add a charm onto the card, anywhere is fine and any kind! By any type I mean that you can make one and tie it with string or ribbion to the card, just make sure we can 'see' it! You can even take a tag and 'hang' from the ribbon, thats a charm in my book too! I'm sure yall will be totally charming (pun intended! ha! )!!:

Here is my example in which used Melanie Muenchinger's new set that will be avaliable this Thursday during our release party at StampTV, it's called Fabulous Frames:


This is a very simple creation. I only colored the flowers leaves really, the rest of the flower is all sparkly because its colored with the Wink of Stella glitter pen...LOVE that pen!

Ok ,here are the rules:

-Please create a new card/project for each challenge.

-You may use any vendors/products.

-The host/hostess will choose 3 winners.

-All 3 cards will be pinned to our Mod Squad Challenge Blog Pinterest Board (follow the link on the right column) and when there is a craft prize the host/hostess will choose one from among those 3 winning cards. The winners will be announced in a separate post that will go up on Tuesdays before the next challenge post goes up. Any winners of craft prizes have 1 week to respond to claim the prize. Prizes that are unclaimed will be offered again on another challenge.

Wonderful creations… I loved them all. I really appreciate all that joined in this week for my Challenge!!!  You all made if difficult to decide.

I tried to pick 18 cards for the win, but they wouldn't let me… Kicking and screaming but still No… Only 3, with one to win the package.

 So for the Three that I picked…. 
In no particular order :


       

This CAS is by : Stamp It Up 
I really love the CAS of this card.  I like the refreshing feel of this card. What a great knot on this card also. 



Next is a card that keep catching my eye. I know it was the combo of the two wonderful colors.
But, That  Octopus is adorable.
This card is by: Erika


                                                     


This Weeks Winner of the prize is Barbara Campbell with this Great Fish card.
I love those fish and the colors, and the water color effect on the fish.
***Congrats to Barbara*** 



*****Also…. Shhhh*****
I wanted to add this one as a Honorable Mention:
This beautiful scene is by Sharyn Polesel. I love this. 
Sharyn Has Just Been picked as a Guest Designer at StampTv for this month.
I am so excited for her. 



 I'm not sure why, but the pictures seem blurry when I make them any larger.
Barbara, Please message me at StampTv with your snail mail so I can send out your package, and again ***Congrats***

Thank You everyone that joined in this last week I really appreciate it. Stay tuned for Tomorrow's Challenge…
Have a Wonderful Day!!!

Summer is Here & the water isn't that far away from me. I have always loved the  Ocean & Sea related things. So this week I thought I would do a  Ocean / Nautical / Sea Challenge.                                   You know: Ships, Lighthouses, Seashells, Things that Live in the Ocean, ect...

 I really love the Ship to Shore stamp set that is in the New StampTv kit - Here Comes the Sun. 


Here is the card I created for this Challenge:



I had a lot of fun with this card. I used Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Card Stock: In the Navy, Kraft, & White layering weight. The Inks I used were Gina K Designs Powder Blue, Moonlit Fog, Blue Denim, Navy, Black, Turquoise Sea, & Ocean Mist. I also used Gina K Designs New Wood Embellishments. Ship Wheel. I love these. There is also a awesome anchor in this set… Just saying.. LOL
