CRAZY New Year...

Hi everyone,

Welcome back to the FIRST C4C of 2010 brought to you by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog! Of course it is a brand new year and we "crazies" are looking forward to bringing you more fun challenges throughout 2010. We hope that you will be able to join us and play along with us.

January also brings us a brand new challenge hostess who has created some super fun challenges for us all. Please welcome Lori Boyd as our January Hostess!

We also have a PRIZE this week on the C4C blog as it's the FIRST Of the month...which has been donated by Innovative Stamp Creations. We will announce the winner with next weeks challenge post.  Good luck to all who enter, and make sure to link up your creation to be entered to win this week's PRIZE!

And now, for the Challenge! Let's have some Polka Dot Fun! Design a card/project using polka dots.



If you would like to play along all you have to do is create a card/project and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword C4C18. Don't forget to come back here and link it on Mr Linky so that everyone else can see it too.

My card uses this SUPER awesome and versatile background stamp from the BRAND SPANKIN' NEW UNITY KOTM that JUST so happened to be polka dots!  Lori, you couldn't have planned this better if you tried, LOL!


I adore this image and the floral image as well... actually, it's just a REALLY awesome kit-check it out HERE!


Before I leave you for today, please be sure to check out what the rest of our CRAZIES have been up to:




Thanks again and HAPPY NEW YEAR...it's gonna be a CRAZY ONE!

Oooh!!! This is fantastic! I'm always for a really nice clean and simple card and this one just rocks it. You makes some really great use of the craft stock here (something I STILL don't use well) and I love stamping with Versamark and I think I see embossing... Really fantastic!

Jess, this is a FABULOUS CAS card (I think I've complained to you before about my dislike of the term "Simple" in CAS because I don't think there's anything simple about it, but now I am rambling...) What I mean to say is I love it!! :-)Traci

Hey Jess! Finally a moment to pop in and actually leave a comment! I didn't get all 12 sketches done after all...only 10... but had a blast! Can't wait to get my new TGF stamps.

You are sure becoming a most excellent Unity girl! Love your card... this is a very different look for you, but I think it's very cool!!

Hugs and Happy New Year!
