 Welcome to this week's TGIF Challenge! 
It's color combo week, and this one is sure to usher in fun feelings of Spring in the air with
Calypso Coral, So Saffron, and Bermuda Bay.

Joining us this week for our color challenge is our newest #TGIFC Design Team Member -
Charlet Mallett!!!
Charlet is Utah native currently living in Massachusetts with her husband, 3 boys, and 2 crazy/lazy golden retrievers. She's worked in the paper crafting industry since 2002 and has been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator off and on over the years … she just received her 5 year pin! Charlet enjoys all things crafty, thrifting, live music and graphic design. Card making is her stress reliever and creative outlet.


We can't let last week's challenge winner go unannounced, so without further ado,
Congrats to:
Billie Moan!
GREAT cards everyone!

#tgifc96 designer spotlight Bibi Cameron

Welcome to this week's challenge! Really quickly, we would like to first take a moment to thank all of you for your continued participation in our weekly challenges. It is so fun for us to share our creativity and be inspired by you as well! Second, we would like to congratulate last week's winner
Liz!

Last, but definitely in no way least, we are again excited to announce two new designers to the TGIF Challenges Team! We know they will bring so much inspiration to the challenges here for you!
First up is Andrea Tracy-Tucker. Andrea lives in Eastern Colorado with her hubby, 3 adorable kids, 3 horses and their pup. Hooked from the first time she picked up a stamp, she's been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator since 2013 and this is definitely her creative outlet. She brings her "Lot of country, little bit of Rock N' Roll" style to not only our team, but numerous blog hops and design teams.

Next up is the talented Sue Plote! Sue holds the distinguished honor as a member of the 2016-2017 Artisan Design Team for Stampin' Up! A life-long crafter, she currently lives on a farm in Northern Illinois with her hubby of 28 years. Mom to two grown children, she is also blessed to be called Nana by two grandsons. While she rocks at card-making, we are excited to see her gifting ideas, an area where she truly shines.

So, this week our designer spotlight features the amazingly talented Bibiana Cameron!
Now, Bibi has recently announced that she is moving on from Stampin' Up! as a Demonstrator. That news saddens us here at TGIF Challenges - so we thought it would be a great way to say, "Thank You" for all of her inspiration and awesomeness by making sure that we still included her one last time here!

Her blog is absolutely stunning, and you can find hours of inspiration there, but to make it easier for you, here are a few pics that might inspire you!




Here is what our designers came up with this week for you!
