Challenge Title

Thursday, December 27, 2012


Hello Peachy Keen friends!
I'm thrilled to share the Top 3 and Top Peach from our 
Anything Goes Challenge
 last week with you today, but
before we get to that, you may have noticed that
there is no challenge listed for today.

There's a very good reason for that.  You see, our 2012
Design Team has officially completed their term,
and we are in the middle of transitioning to our
2013 Design Team.  We are taking a break this week as the new team plans, prepares
and gets settled into their new roles as PKS Designers.

Check in on The Peachy Keen Stamps Blog bright and early tomorrow
morning, because we'll be proudly introducing you to our 
2013 Design Team!!

We have a very talented and enthusiastic team put together, and we can't wait
for you to meet 'em!!

I would also like to remind you that our
in the Peachy Keen Stamps Store continues through the 31st of December
with awesome tiered discounts in place, .99 cent (US ONLY) shipping, and some amazing prizes, which include a drawing for a $100 Gift Certificate (winner to be drawn from this sale only),
(winner drawn from ALL orders from December)

Don't let these great deals or your chance for one of these prizes pass you by!

I think I've made you wait long enough, so now let's get on with our
Top 3 and Top Peach from last week's challenge!

Congratulations, ladies!  Beautiful work as always, and thanks so much to each and every one of our players this week!  Be sure to grab those badges in our sidebar to proudly display on your blog.  It's so much fun to visit your blogs and see your work!
You are ALL amazing!!!

We'll be back next week, and back to a regular challenge schedule!
See ya, and until then...

We wish all of you a very safe and 
Happy New Year!!!!!!!!

PKS Challenge 47 :: Happy Birthday Kathy Sketch

Hello peachy peeps!
We've got somethin' SUPER SPECIAL to celebrate
this week, and we thought what better way to
enjoy the fun than extend an invitation to the celebration
to our Peachy Keen Friends!

Our Peachy Queen, Kathy
(as we lovingly refer to her)
will be celebrating her birthday this weekend
and we wanted to give EVERYONE a chance to send her some 
happy birthday wishes!!

Kathy is the one who's brilliant imagination
brings us all of the wonderful, whimsical images that we've all come to know and 
love, and this is just a small way that we can celebrate her and say THANKS
for all that she does.  Kathy is one of the hardest working people I have ever known.  She works countless hours and through many sleepless nights to bring us wonderful peachy goodness every month, and this is OUR chance to give back by making her birthday as special as she is!

SO, here's what's happening...

Peachy Keen Challenge 47 :: Sketch Challenge :: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO KATHY!

  • Design must be new, created specifically for this challenge
  • Must be a card or layout that follows the sketch provided
  • Link up by 12/19 - 11:59 pm EDT
  • Remember, you don't have to use our stamps to link up, but they are required to earn TOP PEACH!  

We're turning this challenge into a Happy Birthday Kathy

This is DoBea's sketch to follow

Simply add a birthday message for Kathy, and link up as usual.

We're starting Kathy's party a few days early, and we'll continue the party a few days
past her actual birthday.  That way she has LOTS of time to enjoy each and every wonderful creation!!  Let's see what our designers have created to get this party started!

We can't WAIT to see where this challenge takes YOU, and we know that Kathy is going to have a  BLAST looking at what you create to celebrate her birthday!
Have LOTS of fun with this one, and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!!!

A HUGE thanks to everyone who played along with our 3-D ornament challenge last week.
WOW, did we ever have some amazing entries, and it was SO difficult to choose our Top 3 and Top Peach from them.  Here are our winners for this week.

Great job!!!
