A techie challenge for you!

It is so much fun looking through all of your posts every week - what a lot of talent! Consultants and CTMH fans alike - your artwork impresses us every single week!

Before we get to the new challenge for the week, I want to thank Adeline once again for being our prize sponsor! The lucky winner, drawn at random from all entries (and it's rare to come up with the #1 entry on this list) is Benjaman! Congratulations! If you will email me please at mbryt1@bex.net I will get your mailing information over to Adeline and she will send out your prize.

Here's the fun news - this is a back to back prize week so there will be a prize package to be won this week as well! Our sponsor is none other than our newly chosen Guest DT for May - Deneen! And look at the goodies she is going to be sending to one lucky participant:


This is one fabulous prize and you can see more about it at Deneen's blog. Thanks Deneen for sponsoring our challenges!

Ok, so now on to the next challenge. This week you can create whatever you like but it must include a technique that you can tell us about. Oh, there are tons of techniques - just Google stamping techniques if you need to find one. And we want to see what technique inspires you to create! Don't forget that you must use mostly Close To My Heart products in your artwork.

Now are you ready to see what the DT came up with? Take a look:













Want to know what technique each team member used? Then pop over to their blog (their name is the link) and read all about it!

Now it's your turn. Let's see how techie you can be! Post your artwork to your blog or other public online gallery and then come back and leave us a direct link (see the rules and directions in the sidebar).  We'll make our rounds and check you out and you might just win a prize, become a member of the next Friday Five and maybe even be selected the next Guest DT!

Have a great time creating!

Oops! Ignore my entry on #20 -- wrong URL. I'm new to all of this so please accept my apologies and thank you for letting me "play". #21 should be correct.

And thanks to Mary for letting me know my very first post was in the wrong place. Live and learn.

Happy Wednesday, ladies.

Well thanks to Mary's help, I think I got this right and linked my card on my blog to here...I hope so. The full instructions are on my blog. I think this is a fun way to involve many people and get to share ideas and creations. Thanks for the opportunity to share one of my favourite techniques and creation and enter this great challenge, my first.
