#TGIF115 Color Challenge! Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide, and Berry Burst


Hmmmm, I am thinking that it would be really nice to be enjoying a Lime and Berry cold drink in front of a Tranquil Tide instead of enduring the crazy heat of summer so many of us are dealing with right now! Maybe it's time to relax and refresh with a bright, happy color combo this week.

Thank you all so much for your GORGEOUS projects last week.
We'd like to congratulate Sara Nell as last week's winner!

Sometimes y'all make it reallllly hard to choose!

#TGIFC113 Technique Time - Bokeh

Japanese term for the subjective aesthetic quality of out-of-focus areas of a photographic image, Bokeh (pronounced "bo-ke" with the "ke" as in kettle) has been a fun stamping technique that has been floating around for a while, and our designers are giving it a try this week.



Before we go on to see what our team created for you this week. Thank you to everyone who played along with our "Let's Hear it for the Boys" challenge - GREAT entries! A special shout out to Jenn Frost for this card, which was voted as our winner!

Let's check out our team's projects, shall we?

Let's hear it for the boy
Let's give the boy a hand

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Let's hear it for the boy!
 Let's create for those BOYS. Husbands, sons, brothers, dads, uncles, nephews, UPS man - any special man in your life! LOL!
