Weekly Challenge #9 - Hosted by Sheryl Greene

This week our Princess-for-a-Day (Guest Designer) is Sheryl Greene!! She would like everyone to create a THANK YOU card with a really cool technique that can be used on ANY card!!

Create a Thank you card.

You must include ribbon as an accent anywhere on your card.

Now for the fun part - on your base card we will use plastic wrap as texturing on card stock.

Take a piece of the wrap, bunch it up. Tap it into paint or your stamp pad and pounce it on your card stock.

Let dry and use as a back drop to your image.
Here is Sheryl's example card! Make sure you click on it to make it larger so you can see all the detail this neat plastic wrap technique creates! Thanks SO MUCH for teaching us this GREAT technique Sheryl!

Before you run off to grab your plastic wrap please take a look at Sheryl's questionnaire answers and pictures of her children and kitties so you can get to know her a little better! The children are GORGEOUS and the kitty is TOO CUTE!!! Remember...This challenge runs from today (October 6, 2009) to Monday, October 12, 2009 at midnight. The winner will be chosen Tuesday, October 13, 2009 using Random.org and the winner will recieve 2 Free Doodle Palace images and have the opportunity to host/design the next challenge!

What is your favorite scrap item/tool? My Cuttlebug and me Cricut Expressions
What is your favorite paper line/company? DCWV and SEI
What is your favorite color(s)? PINK
How do you have your scraproom decorated? Colors, themes, homey, contempo, etc. Well my scrap room is in my finished basement, right now it has the original dark panelling that I will be painting a brighter color. I have the storage cubes from Michael's craft store to hold my paper, Cricut cartridge, ribbon flowers etc.
Are you an animal person? Yes - I love cats. Do they have a place in your scraproom? We have one cat - Bella, he sits on the window sill where I craft and occasionally steals my crafting chair! A couple times I have caught him eating my glitter! Can you image.
What is your favorite Disney movie? Beauty and the Beast. Reason is - when my daughter was born in 1990 - we bought that first movie and it is her favorite. When ever I hear the opening or watch the movie - I get choked up. Our daughter is now in her 2nd year of college.
Do you watch TV/Movies while working? Not generally, the other half of our small basement - I have set up as a game/TV room for our boys. So they have movies on all the time and I sneek a peek. They pick some good ones I would not usually watch. Do you get your inspiration from them? No, my inspiration comes from magazines and other bloggers
Sweet or Savory snacks? Sweet. have you tried the sweet andsalty mix by Nabisco. Or how about the mix by Chex? Yumm!
Scary or Romantic movies? Romantic, I can't watch the scary movies- I don't like bad things to happen.. Yes it's only a movie.... LOL
Beach or Snow vacations? Well, living in MA (USA) we get enough cold and snow - so I would have to say Sunny days... we go to FL every Feb to escape the cold winter for a week.
Favorite type of music? Rock (70 and 80's), hip hop, Salsa
