CraftyJC Challenge #9: Recycle - Winners

Ok. sometimes a girl has to do what a girl ought to do!

We had 52 entries for the last challenge. The DT and I were watching with bated breaths as the number kept creeping up till the last day. It was truly a tough task to choose the Top 3 and so we ended up with a Top 3 but shared by the Top 4 :) Yes, sometimes a girl ought to do what a girl ought to do.



Ujjwal’s entry way absolutely creative. Now I can’t see an egg carton without thinking about her entry :)

Sonia’s flowers were gorgeous – you would never have guessed their humble origin! :)

Indira;s pumpkin seed flowers were fabulous to

And The winning entry is Hussena’s Recycled Box, Tag & A Small Purse.

Now for the Random winner for the second hamper is 48.     Ujjwal. Congratulations girl :)

Winners, I am sending you the Top 3 blinkie and will also talk to your about DT for the next challenge in November

Thanks a lot for your enthusiastic response. It was such a difficult job picking up the Top 3. So glad I had a gorgeous DT who helped me with this :)

I hope you will play along with us in the new challenge CraftyJC Challenge #10: Simplicity

CraftyJC Challenge #10: An Inspiration

This time for the inspiration I’ve been thinking of having the usual “Top 3” of the previous challenge as DT. But now, since this something everyone’s been excited about I think I will not deny the pleasure of the creating something – as Susan calls it – Creative Simplicity

So, here I am with a bit of some inspiration.  I plan to invite a few other crafters over the next weeks to provide more inspiration.

The Top 3 of Recycle challenge will be DT for the next challenge. I will be announcing the winners VERY soon. It’s been soo difficult to choose the winners!! You girls were amazing.

Ok, now that I am done with all the (nervous) chatter (I’ve never provided any inspiration for any challenge!!), AND I can’t think of anything else to say to sort of postpone this moment, here is me dreaming of Christmas already :)


This card is has just about 3 steps

  1. Stamp Hero Arts Wreath of Leaves in light green and dark green on top of each other. I didn’t bother cleaning the stamp in between
  2. Stamp the sentiment from Papertreyink ‘ Signature Christmas in red
  3. Stick those beautiful red frosted stones from PieLane

And you are done.


Thanks for dropping by and I hope you will play along at our Simplicity challenge

Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication

So, when the theme of this month’s challenge is Simplicity, I had to but request Susan if she would be kind enough to provide an inspiration. She so cheerfully said a BIG Yes.

Yes, you heard that right. This challenge’s inspiration is provided by none other than Susan who personifies Simplicity, in many ways. She said, we’ll just stick to the theme as Simplicity and will leave it to you crafters to interpret the way you see it.
