It's time to "SPRING Forward" with Anything But a Card Challenges No. 34

Good Morning Everyone! It's a brand new month and time for a brand new ABAC Challenge. Did you enjoy our little "April's Fools" 5th Sunday Challenge last week where we dared you to "USE FIVE"??! To keep the calendar of challenges balanced... keep a lookout for a few more fifth Sunday's smattered throughout 2014. KUDOS and much applause to those who played along on our first FIVE challenge. If you missed the challenge,  please CLICK HERE and show the players some blog love. Stay tuned for a new "Spotlight and Mini-Challenge" at the bottom of the month at the end of Challenge No. 34.

Now we get down to business... it's time for a new challenge today here at Anything But a Card Challenges... let's get ready to play and have some fun! Thanks to all who's creative stars aligned and played along with our Challenge #33 "SPARKLE". If you missed out on seeing all the glittered and glam submissions... please CLICK HERE to check them out.

The new Challenge... Anything But a Card Challenge #34 - "SPRING Forward"!! We know Spring is dragging it's feet in arriving as ol' man winter keeps his heels dug in the snow and ice... so we are celebrating the new season with an OPEN THEME!!! Feel free to break out the bright colors and create along with Spring and Easter, or create whatever your muse desires... as long as it's anything but a card!

Oh Yes! Sparkle for me is all about the Bling!
As a child, it was always a tradition to make a little Easter garden which is probably why, many, many years later I still can't resist the urge! The added bonus in this one is that those eggs are real chocolate. But be warned - I've counted them!!! Check out my BLOG for more details.

I have a large blank wall that needed something. I had a very old piece of canvas so I painted, inked, stenciled and misted the background, then added this line from a Mumford and Sons song. Check out my BLOG for more details!

Today I'm sharing a 5" x 7" canvas board I've created following one of the lessons from the "Soul Food" class I'm taking.  Please visit my BLOG for more details!

I am totally Cuckoo for all things "Steampunk" and I also have an extreme sweet tooth of the marshmallow Peeps® variety. I have created an amazing whimsical timepiece combining both... and I managed to include an unused glitter tray too!  Please visit my BLOG for more details!


We hope our designers have you INSPIRED to take some time to be creative!! We can't wait to see your creations and we hope that you will join in and share them with us! Stop back next Sunday to see more of our Design Team creations!
