Dare To Get Dirty Challenge on Splitcoaststampers

Hello, sweet friends! The big news is that I am hosting my first Dare To Get Dirty challenge at Splitcoaststampers

Splitcoaststampers (SCS) is the world's largest stamping community with more than 400,000 members, many of whom are Fan Club Members. Each year a number of the past and 12 current designers at SCS (known as the "Dirty Dozen") have a week-long challenge fest known as "Dare To Get Dirty (DTGD)." This special week-long event is just for Fan Club Members to say "thank you" for their support. It's an amazing community for inspiration and encouragement, and I have come to know and love so many wonderful friends from all over the world. If you aren't a Fan Club Member yet, click here to learn more about it. There's plenty of time to have fun! And if you need to "give" yourself permission, here's one from the Dirty Dozen., Dare To Get Dirty 2015, DTGD

I can't tell you what my challenge is, but I am sharing my card with you. I know there are some Fan Club Members who follow me, so I would love to see what you do (and you know where to go to see my challenge). And my sample card makers have made some absolutely beautiful cards to inspire!

I used the Build A Bouquet stamp set by Stampendous, and I love blue and decorative dies. That's all I can share with you...hehe!

Now it's time to say, "see you soon." And I do hope to see a card from some of my sweet friends! You have until Monday, August 10, 11:59 p.m. Central Time, to post your cards.

The Lord will open the heavens,
the storehouse of His bounty...
to bless all the work of your hands.
Deuteronomy 28:12

Blues are my favorite, too, Cheryl, and this is lovely! You've really captured a gorgeous hydrangea bloom here! Love your card!

Oh, this is gorgeous, Chery! Love the stamp and all the pretty blue. It looks great on the die cut background. I would love to become reacquainted with SCS, but maybe later when I've settled in. You did a beautiful job on this and it's always such a thrill to me when you stamp!

This is so pretty. Your shading on each petal is perfect. Hubby had to trim our white hydrangeas and I have beautiful bouquets all over the house.

Robin Clendenning said...

Awww, pretty hydrangeas Cheryl! Love the colors and your vase is so cool!

Oh my Cheryl that is just lovely, the shading you achieved on the flowers with mixing the colors is just wonderful, and the die you picked to frame it just sets it off Beautifully! I am not a fan club member, but I have been enjoying everyone's cards that have been participating :)

Tracy said...

Oh my goodness how gorgeous is this! You have used my absolute favorite flower, colored it to perfection and framed it in elegance. Yeeeuummm!
