Hi everyone!  Welcome to this week's Mod Squad Challenge!!



One of my favorite parts of Christmas is the music.  I start listening to it as SOON as my family will let me, and I sing "Deck the Halls" for the whole year! :)  So our challenge for this week is to use music on your card.  You can use a musical stamp like I did, or use a piece of sheet music as background paper, or stamp a sentiment that is part of a Christmas song, or even just make a card inspired by a Christmas carol, as long as you tell me which one!

For my card I used lots of pieces from the current Winter Cheer Stamp TV Kit, along with some Red Hot, Pine and Charcoal Brown Ink.

-Please create a new card/project for each challenge.

-You may use any vendors/products.

-The host/hostess will choose 3 winners.

-All 3 cards will be pinned to our Mod Squad Challenge Blog Pinterest Board (follow the link on the right column) and when there is a craft prize the host/hostess will choose one from among those 3 winning cards. The winners will be announced in a separate post that will go up on Tuesdays before the next challenge post goes up.

-Our challenges may be combined with up to 4 other challenges, so to be eligible for any prizes and Pinning you can have a total of 5 challenges you've entered. We rely on the honor system so please be honest.

I can't see what you'll create!

Hello everyone! Joyce here hosting my very first challenge here on the Mmod Squad blog! Woohoo!  I'm so excited to be bringing you today's challenge!
My challenge is to get your timer ready and make a one layer card and let us know how long it took you to make.  The quicker the better!  My card took me 4.57 seconds, I think I did pretty well for just under 5 minutes.  I was thinking of a friend who loves purple when I was making the card so it came together rather quickly.  

I used this months StampTV kit and added purple twine.  
I colored the image with spectrum noir markers. 

Prize: 
A GinaK prize pack with some extra goodies added.

Grandma's Attic.....So Grab A Doily!


Good Morning Crafters!  Donna Phelan here, excited to be hosting the new Mod Squad Challenge!  For today's Challenge I want you to incorporate a Doily into your card or project.  It can be in a subtle way, which I have chosen, or in a big bold way, your choice!  Just make sure we can see at least a peek!

My first card only measures 4.25 x 4.25 inches.



I used the Gina K Designs stamp set, All Occasion Tags, an oldie but a goodie!  The card stock is Pure Luxury Wild Orchid, by GKD and the Designer Paper is Dots And Stripes, by American Crafts.  The Doily I used is bright and white and really stands out.  Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Spellbinders die, EK Success Butterfly Trio Punch (top layer punched out on Vellum) and a few Adhesive Rhinestones complete this card. 


My second card is a little bit more elaborate.


This card uses the Gina K Designs stamp set Mistletoe Memories, just perfect for the Holiday Season!  Card stock is GKD Pure Luxury Asparagus and Passionate Pink

I've added lots of little accents, Adhesive Pearls, Flamingo Liquid Pearls, Chipboard Button, Button, Twine, Corner Punch, Doily, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Pink and White Gingham Ribbon, Sizzix Die, Branch With Leaves, and Chunky White Glitter for snow.

So climb up to your Nana's attic or open up that wonderful crafty accent drawer and pull out a Doily!


.

Since this is the first week of the month....the FABULOUS prize is an awesome $50 gift certificate to Gina K. Designs!!!!!
