Paper Garden Projects is sponsoring the “Catered Crop” challenge for the rest of this month. How exciting!
Linda posts a simply delightful challenge every 2 weeks. She creates a “recipe” from the entry of the winner of the previous week’s challenge. You can use all or just part of the recipe – so it is very easy to find a bit of inspiration.
Its so worth checking out the entries – so many just beautiful ones. Linda and her design team are amazing too!
And for this challenge – the winner receives a $20 gift certificate to the Paper Garden Projects store – to buy any old thing your little heart desires!
Here is my sample:
The Catered Crop recipe calls for:
- Pattern Paper – Stripes and mini print
- Colors – Blue, Green and Brown
- Stamps – Children, Kittens
- Color Mediums – Prismacolors
- Embellishments – pearls, buttons, ribbon, flowers
- Tools – Border punches, die cuts
- Techniques – sewing, paper piecing, paper piercing, tissue box (or other paper boxes), coloring sky with Prismacolors, crochet flower
- Theme – Spring, Childhood
- Shapes – Circles, ovals, scallops
- Miscellaneous – Tissues
I decided to include color (green), a mini flower print, the spring theme, diecuts and ovals.
So be sure to hop on over to the Catered Crop site and cook something up to enter the challenge!
I know I haven’t been posting much – but I’ve been very busy on something I’m so, so, so excited about! Hee Hee!
I’ve also been working in the yard a lot whenever I can. I’m trying to get the vegetable garden prepped (its big). Yesterday, DH and I planted 3 apple trees, one pear tree, 3 blueberry bushes and 25 strawberry plants! Wish me luck that the local wild life will let me have at least some of the harvest. Actually – it will be be 4-5 years before we can hope to see much from the fruit trees. But that’s OK – something to look forward to!
Hope everyone is wonderful! Happy crafting!
