Craft Challenge #1 - RESULTS

The results are in and Craft Challenge #1 was a success! But of course I knew it would be. :) So without further ado:

The original cards sent to our participants:

And the final works of art:

"A Time to Sew" from Shara - read more about it here. I love the sweet girl's thimble purse!

"Sew Many Thanks" from Dana who doesn't have a blog but should think about starting one! I love how she thought to make the card into a thread spool!

"Mulberry Tree" by Caroline - read more about it here. Caroline is a fairly new blogger so stop by and give her some love! She just completed her very first swap with us at Sweet Goodness! I love the little green rick rack leaves!

"Stretch Your Wings" from Jane - read more about it here. Jane actually sent this to me! I love it! Thanks! And how clever to put it in a little frame! The bird is embroidered, such talent!

"Kitty Wants In" from LeeAnn - read more about it here. Oh how I wish I could draw like that!

"Smocked" by Sarah - read more about it here. I love Sarah's vision, I never would have thought to smock anything but fabric! Love it!

"Easter Parade" by me. I have a lovely white feather tree (a wedding gift from Sarah!) that I always use at Easter. I try to make a new decoration for it each year and I knew from the beginning that is what I would use my mini spool card for. The eggs on the front are glittery.

And the back is more plain. Doesn't that Easter bunny look a bit mad? LOL I'm inspired now to make more Easter ornaments and hope to share them with you soon.

I love all the entries for Craft Challenge #1! I will defiantly be announcing a new challenge soon. I think for the next one I will choose an object that many of us already have so we can have more participants.

Thank you to all of the participants! Everyone is so creative and I feel very inspired now to go make something new. :)

Everyone did such a wonderful job! Congratulations to everyone who participated. I'm always too chicken for such things.

Its interesting to see them altogether like that, and I LOVE your sweet bunnies.

(I have one of your easter ornies from last year on our feather tree too!)

Shara said...

It is interesting to see what we all did, isn't it. I think they are all great!

I have one of those trees from Sarah too and I TOTALLY forgot about it!~ Gotta go decorate!

They all turned out great, I hope to get in on the next challenge!

Sweet!! Sometimes a quick challenge and prompt is all we need to get the creative juices flowing! Holler at me when you do your next one :)
