Week 242 ~ Christmas Color Challenge


Guest Designer

Please meet....

Darnell Knauss

My name is Darnell and my blog is (djkardkreations.com). I started making my own cards in 2002 after attending my first Stampin' Up! party and I have never looked back. After ten years making cards for family and friends inside the disgusting garage, we had the backyard relandscaped and I became the envied occupant of my sweet crafty Playhouse! I am having the time of my life now blogging to share my cards, play with words, and make friendships with delightful people from all over the world who provide me with endless inspiration! 

How adorable, thanks Darnell!
Please stop by Darnell's blog to say hello, I am sure she would be thrilled to see you there!

You are welcome to submit any type of project based on the theme and enter as many times as you wish, but we do hope that the creation is new and original, please do not link creation that have been posted prior to the day of the current challenges. We are looking after our wonderful sponsors who donate time, prizes, and effort with full focus on them, to be eligible for the prize -

No direct selling links are allowed here.
Please mention City Crafter Challenge Blog and provide a link back to us.
Please do not cross-promote event unrelated to City Crafter Challenge Blog.
Link your direct post of the challenge and not your entire blog.

We noted there a few entries that were not following the rules stated above the past few weeks, to save the precious time of our DT and be fair to other crafters who followed rules, we will now delete entries that trying to promote their products here at this challenge blog. The CCCB team work hard for the past few years to provide a playground for crafters all over the world, we brainstorm for a weekly theme, create to inspire other likewise crafters and spending time going around to leave encouraging comments, we do not want CCCB to become an advertising space for businesses to sell their products or gain exposure for your own challenge blog, if you are trying to promote your products, we strongly encourage you to be one of our sponsors, that way, you will gain exposure the right manner. Thank YOU!


Winner will get to choose 4 digital images from Sweet Pea Stamps

Sweet Pea Stamps (SPS) is a small home-based business in Michigan. SPS does not work from a brick and mortar shop. You will find SPS only on line at Sweet Pea Stamps. We pride ourselves in quality and value. Lynette McAnsh, Owner, is a perfectionist. If the product is not top quality, she will not offer it.

Lynette stated her small business selling D.O.T.S. in the 90s. In 1999 she started “Designs, Ink’d” and sold that business in 2004 due to health and family issues. Missing the love of running a small business, and with her children older, she started Sweet Pea Stamps in April 2009. Now, 5 years later, we are representing over 30 artists with digital images and rubber stamps. She does work alone, sometimes with the help of family; her turn-around time may be longer than the big companies. You will always be met with friendly and professional demeanor and her merchandise will always be the highest quality.

Other online places to visit SPS are the Facebook page Sweet Pea Stamps, and our Facebook group, Sweet Pea Stamps Friends and Fans. SPS has a monthly blog challenge at One Sweet Challenge and daily inspiration from SPS’s designers at Sweet Pea Rubber Stamps blog. We hope you join use.

Challenge ends December 22nd, 2014 at 11.55 PM (EST)
