Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge 19

Hi everyone! Well, I can hardly believe it, but we are almost to the end of 2009! I have heard so many news commentators say it has been a bumpy, uncertain, and frustrating year with everything going on in our world and in our own economy. As I look back on 2009, though, I can't help but only remember the great things it has brought me: our second daughter (born in May), health to my entire family, an opportunity to still work and stay home with my girls and of course, the opportunity to take part in a really fun blog where I get to meet so many new and talented people! Yes, 2009 has been good to me, and I hope it has been good to you, too. Take a peek through your photo album or your handmade collections. See all that you have accomplished, every year is a good year!

I'd like to first congratulate our pickrandom.com winner from our last challenge - #16 Marianne! And what an adorable card she's made! Go take a peek if you haven't already! Marianne, please email me your details, and we'll get your prize off to you right away.

Challenge 19 is another card sketch; this time with a slightly longer size and our designers have knocked our socks off, yet again! Please take a look at their inspiring works of art, and grab your friends to participate with us in this one! Our prize this week will be one of our brand-new assortment face sets - Simple Sallies! (See photo at the bottom of this post.) They are the perfect companion to our Simple Simons and are valued at $25.00. Place your link in Mr. Linky before

to qualify! Good luck to all who enter, and we can't wait to see your entries!

Vivienne's delicious card arrived this morning! Look at those tempting strawberries! :) Viv used PK-239 Faceless Fruit as the stamped images.

Nikki made this adorable penguin jam band with PK-318 Penguin Doll Set. Can't ya just hear the music?
Lorie tried out a new coloring technique this week, and we think she did a FABULOUS job! Lorie used PK-237 Cute Kitties.

Janice is so clever, making us anticipate the "Big Cheese"! She really made PK-224 Mouse Gets the Cheese come to life.

Jacqui is back and feeling a bit better, and we couldn't be more excited! She created this thank you note with a touch of romance using PK-214 - Happy Lil' Froggies and PK-408 Gingerbread Doll Set for the sentiment.

Emma has crafted this adorable penguin friendship using PK-318 Penguin Doll Set. They're just too much fun!

Here's my version of this sketch. Sorry I'm adding this so late...I promise to be on time next challenge! I used PK-327 Winter Peekers and Phrases.

Remember, the prize for Challenge #19 is an entire assortment pack of our newest set, PK-531 Simple Sallies! Good luck everyone!

Big Hugs!

Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge 18

Okay, how did we get to the middle of December already?! Where we live, we saw an excess of 2 feet of snow since our last challenge, and it's like we were whipped into winter in just a few short days! But, hooray for a White Christmas (the snow can melt after January 1st, thank you)!

We had a great turnout for our last challenge and our winner is #26 - Moshie! Congratulations! Please email us to claim your prize!

Now, onto our next Challenge! The guidelines are to make a card using the sketch below (feel free to replace buttons with any embellishment). Please link up your entry before December 27th for a chance to win (prize shown at bottom of post)!

And here are some cards filled with holiday cheer by our Design Team! Thank you ladies, you all did such a wonderful job!

Viv designed this gorgeous blue and white card using PK-329 Chill Baby Chill Snowman Set.

Lorie rocks our world with her winter penguin ensemble. Lorie used PK-318 Penguin Doll Set.

Janice's bright & cheery "Be Jolly" card was adorned with PK-328 Snowman Winter Greeting Card Set.

Nikki perfectly blended the distress technique with whimsy using PK-328 Snowman Winter Greeting Card Set.

Emma's Ginger Girl is too sweet for words! She used PK-408 Gingerbread Doll Set.

Here's my take on this weeks' challenge. I also used PK-318 Penguin Doll Set.

Good Luck everyone!!
