Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C27

Mornin', Crazy fans!! (Hmmm, maybe I should put that a little differently.) How about, mornin' fans of the Crazies? Sorry, I couldn't resist that, LOL!

Thanks for dropping by our Crazy 4 Challenges blog! This is Barbara and I'm your challenge hostess for March. I've got some fun challenges cooked up for 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 March which is
Since this is the first Challenge of the Month, this is our Prize Challenge, which has been donated by DRS Designs. One lucky person will be randomly chosen to win a $15 gift voucher so time to start creating! We will announce the winner with next week's challenge post.

My first challenge for you is Paper Piercing. I love this technique and there are so many ways to use it. You can do a little, you can do a lot, you can do it fancy, you can do it plain--you can even use it for faux stitching!

If you would like to play along with us, all you have to do is create a card/project with paper piercing and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword C4C27. Don't forget to come back here and link it on Mr Linky so that everyone else can see it too.

Before we get onto our design team samples for this week we have 3 samples from the DRS Design Team for you to see.

This is the first time I've done paper piercing. Only did a small bit on this card, but I will definitely try it again.
Wonderful DT cards for this challenge!

I adore all of your cards. I notice I didnt do the right kind of paper piercing, but I have never done what you have done on your cards. How do you get the lines so perfect?
