Challenge #16 at Twofers ~ Shoes!

For the theme this fortnight I chose shoes.  I do love shoes, but I'm not as "shoe crazy" as some people are, I prefer handbags.  Regardless, I am hoping you will have some shoe related stamps and my theme will prompt you to create something to enter.

If you do enter, you will have a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Alleystamps, who generously sponsors our challenges here at Twofers.

So, get your work boots, your dancing shoes or your dream shoes out and create!

Christi (ooops!)

Winners - Challenge #14 - Anything Goes

Thank you very much for all your lovely entries to our Anything Goes challenge - you made it very, very hard to choose as I really didn't want to leave anyone's entry out! However, after much deliberation, I have narrowed it down to a winner and top three. So, who gets this time's $20 voucher for Alleystamps?

Our winner this time is Debi Ryan whose pocket letter is not just a beautiful piece of art but a lovely gift to send too.

Debi, please email StampinDiva AT yahoo dot com with Winner #14 in the header and Christi will pass on your details to Alleystamps.

Now for the top 3 - in order of entry they are

I'm very sorry I couldn't comment on this beautiful entry as I'm not a member of Split Coast Stampers, but I loved the beautiful colours and the elegant arrangement of the card.
A fun, quirky card with great upcycling of package material
Perfect stamping and a beautiful scene
Winner and top three, please collect your badges from our Badges page and whether you were picked this time or not, many thanks for joining in and making my task so difficult!
And don't forget, you still have almost a week to join in with our current challenge which is Organic.

15 - Organic

We, ChristiJane and I are really enjoying ourselves with this fortnightly challenge.   We love the quality of entries and the fact that we have something of a dedicated following of awesome artists, thank you.   And we have a fantastic sponsor Alleystamps every 2 weeks we get to give a $20 voucher for our favourite.

So this time is it my, Zoe's, choice and the idea that occurred to me is organic.  Organic, something 'living' Plants Animals Insects. Organic as in farming crops and live stock grown without the use of aggressive methods or chemicals. Organic as in something that developes as you go along, not planned and/or placed but rather grows as you continue.  We would also love to know how your organic creation fits our theme.

Here is my sample and the great ideas my teamies have come up with.

As you can see we all went in different directions with this theme, but each of our samples includes stamps and ink and there are no digi stamps.    We are now looking forward to seeing how you go with the flow.
