Challenge Number 1 - Anything but a Card

Welcome to the FIRST Challenge!!!

Every other Saturday for 2011 there will be a challenge right here on my blog, posted at 7 am! My Designers and Guest Designer will also have their post scheduled for 7 am EST. I have a variety of challenge themes lined up and you will be able to gain inspiration from 5 talented ladies each week.

There will be a prize once per month, so if you participate in both challenges you will have two chances to win. So let's get started.

This week's challenge was to make anything but a card. Let's see what the Designers did!



First up is Paula and she made a really adorable layout!!!



Next is Denise with this amazing basket of paper flowers!!!



This adorable project comes from Darlene, and it is the prettiest little bag ever!!!



These adorable money jars are brought to you from Savhanna and they are such a great idea!!!



And this week our Guest Designer is Sarah, and she made such a cute frame!!!

All of our Designers did a fabulous job, and were very creative!!! Be sure to click right over to their blogs and read more about their projects and leave them some comment love. I think they deserve it!

And now you can participate too.

You have until Jan 24th at 7pm EST to submit your project using the Linky below.

You must make anything but a card.

You must have a blog to participate. You will link ONLY the post that has your actual challenge to the Linky below, please don't just link to your blog main page. I need to be able to easily find your project.

You must link my challenge/blog in your post.

You must also leave a comment on this post with your email address as well as which number you are on the Mr. Linky.

Only USA addresses are accepted for the prize.

Please follow all directions listed here if you want to be considered for the grand monthly prize.

And most importantly, have fun!

This month's prize will be the CHOICE OF ONE of the Cricut Cartridges shown here:



Happy Crafting, hope you enjoy this challenge!



NOTE, This challenge has ENDED. Thank you to all who participated! Number 18 is the last one that will be counted.
