City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #67- Vintage Garden

Good Morning!
It's Ros hosting for you today ... and I'm hoping you will enjoy a Photo Inspiration Challenge this week.
This gorgeous bed set is from the Vintage collection but YOUR creation doesn't have to be vintage ... it's a matter of how these photos "speak" to you
 You can make a card, tag, ATC or any sort of project 
 Just have fun ... and as always we look forward to seeing what you come up with...
 I hope you'll  join us!

Week 67 ~ Vintage Garden
Guest Designer

Get to know Charlene....


Hi! My name is Charlene (Char) to everyone :-)  I am so excited and honored to be guest designing for City Crafter Challenge Blog! Thanks so much for having me!!!!!
I live in Northern California. I'm a mother of 2 grown kids and a grandmother to 2 beautiful granddaughters ages 2 and 4! I started making cards 2 1/2 years ago and have been hooked ever since! I've had the privilege of meeting some wonderful and talented friends in the scrapbook world!
I'm not sure what my exact style is but my cards are always referred to as "cute" and I also love shabby! Although I enjoy clean and simple cards I have trouble making them... I keep piling on the embellishment :-)

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #66- It's A Shore Thing

Hi all! It is Cheryl back with this week's challenge...and one thing I know for "shore" is that I LOVE THE BEACH! I was born and raised seven blocks from the beach and I'm pretty "shore" that at least a little bit of salt water runs in my veins. You can take the girl away from the beach, but you can't take the beach away from the girl...no matter how far I live away from it, it is still a part of who I am. So we are celebrating the beach this week with our theme, "It's A Shore Thing"! Your challenge is simply to create any beach related project. I "shore" hope you will join us!! You know how we ALL here at City Crafter Challenge Blog LOVE to view EVERY single project you share with us!
