Chicka Challenge #1

Welcome to the very first Chicka Challenge! There is no end to the things you can do on a road trip with your stamping buddy, mine calls me Chicka, hence the title of our weekly challenge. We came up with this crazy idea, "Let's do a challenge on our blogs every Tuesday and use the things we bought on our trip". Face it, how many times have you gone craft shopping and then put that cool new paper in a folder and forgot all about it? We challenge you to find that treasure you were saving for a rainy day and use it! Anyone can play along with us and share ideas and fun.

The "rules" are simple,

1. Complete the challenge and upload to either your blog or online gallery.

2. In your post or write up, you must include a link to both of the original Chicka's blogs
(www.janesaddiction.typepad.com and www.lavendergiraffe.blogspot.com.

3. Leave a comment on either of our blogs (on the Chicka challenge #1 post) that includes your name and a link to your project.

Easy peasy!!!

So today is day #1 in our challenge journey and what could be better than blog candy!?!
The above photo is what I am offering. Check out Jane's blog for some more free goodies.

This weeks challenge is easy. See this great black and white salt and pepper paper by Theresa Collins? That is what we bought. Your challenge is to follow the black and white theme and create a food related card. Easy and yummy! Feel free to pass along our new challenge to your circle of friends and invite them to play.

My card is created in the simple, A Muse style. I used the clear Baking Set from A Muse Artstamps for the apron and my scallop Nestabilities circle. The scalloped ribbon is another part of what Jane and I bought on our little trip. Add the Got Milk? sentiment and you have the beginnings of a great batch of cookies. Couldn't resist putting some star dust Stickles on the apron pocket for a little sparkle.

Now, put on your creative hat and get busy and make that card! We are waiting to see what you come up with.
