Gone Challenge Crazy!

This weekend at Splitcoaststampers, there are challenges galore!  On Friday night, it was a Virtual Stamp Night (VSN) Mini.  I only got to complete one challenge for the Rodeo theme.  It was called "The Queen's Wave" inspired by the Rodeo Queens.  You had to put something on your card that had to do with "wave".  I chose the cute little hand and heart from Papertrey Ink's "Love Lives Here" set.

You only have 45 minutes to complete your challenge project, so I kept mine pretty simple.  Used PTI's Vintage Cream and Sweet Blush cardstocks, Spring Moss buttons, twine, and lots of Stampendous Crystal Snow glitter!  It's difficult to see, but the middle panel was embossed with A Muse Studio's Polka Dot Impression plate.

It's also the start of the "Dare to Get Dirty" Challenges for Fan Club Members.  This week, current and past members of the Dirty Dozen Design Team post challenges each day.  If you complete them all, your are eligible to win prizes, yippee! I got a good head start...

For Debbie's and Jeanne's Challenges, I used the freebie "Sweetie Pouch" from Waltzingmouse Stamps, along with the gorgeous Festive Foliage set, and some A Muse Studio patterned paper tucked inside...

Completed 2 more cards last night, but didn't take pictures yet.  Hope to get to a few more today, and will post them all together.  I tell you, these challenges are like potato chips to me...I can never stop at just one, they are too much fun!  You will also get to see all of the Dirty Dozen samples for the challenges, and looking at their incredible art is a prize all of it's own!  If you are not a Fan Club Member yet at Splitcoaststampers, you can still join and get started with the challenges yourself!
