Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C23



Hi everyone

Thanks for dropping by our Crazy 4 Challenges blog.
It's a brand new month, which means we have a brand new challenge hostess for you. Our February challenge hostess is Robin Willis. Robin has come up with some fun challenges to share with you this month, so I hope you will come back and check them out each week.

Before we get onto this week's challenge, we also need to let you know about our first sponsor for February which is The {Stamps} of Life by Stephanie Barnard.

Being the first Challenge of the Month, this is our Prize Challenge, which has been donated by The {Stamps} of Life by Stephanie Barnard. One lucky person will be randomly chosen to win either 2 clear sets per winner OR 5 digital sets ..... so time to start creating! We will announce the winner with next weeks challenge post.

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, this week's challenge is .......................................
Be My Valentine - to create a valentine themed card.

If you would like to play along with us, 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 C4C23. Don't forget to come back here and link it on Mr Linky so that everyone else can see it too.

Beautiful samples, all. Appropriately enough, my sister and I are making 90 Valentine cards for an assisted living facility. So picking a couple for this challenge was my only challenge!

I love how the grass was done on the chick card. Giving lessons on how? And DT your samples as always top of the line. Thank you c4challenges for the give away.

Why my comment came up anonymous I do not know. You go away for a few weeks and now I'm anonymous. Kidding!!! But I don't know why it came up w/anonymous instead of my name.

I never thought I could participate on any these kind of challenges due to the time constrain, but thanks to the snow storm in DC I was able to create three cards.

I love this website and love all the cards posted for this challenge.
