The Challenge #41 {Welcome Back!}

Hello and welcome back to The Challenge! We have enjoyed a restful summer break and we are back to inspire you with our weekly challenges!

This month we are thrilled to have Featured Designer Alanna Moses joining us! Kim Heggins is setting up our designers each month and she asked Alanna to share a bit about herself!



Alanna here and I've been stamping for the last 13 years or so and started by blog in 2008. I am most happy when I can make cards and then send them to friends and those who could use some happy mail. I'm a momma to 3 children who I adore and the youngest two keep me busy at nights with their activities. During the day, you'll find me at a local CPA firm working as an auditor. I'm thrilled that Kim asked me to guest design this month and would love for you to stop by my blog at www.damoses.blogspot.com



Sketch Dimensions:
Base: 4.25"x 5.5"
Small Rectangle on the end: 1.5" x 4.25"
Middle Rectangle: 3" x 4"

I hope you like the simple sketch I created for this challenge! For my card, I wanted to create an "end of summer" themed card and so I dug out my new sunflower stamp from Jane's Doodles. I coloured with copics and kept the design simple. I used a scrap piece of polka dot paper on my card and tied some twine around it! Simple and fun! I hope you enjoy playing with my sketch this week!



The design team have created some inspiration to get you in the crafting mood! Come and join us! Our weekly winner will be our next Guest Designer! So come and join the fun!
