We have a new sponsor, Penny Black, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Bouquet!  A randomly selected participant in the Bouquet challenge will have their choice of a Penny Black gift certificate, while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

Please join us in welcoming our newest Guest Designer,
Marcie Sharp, Sharp Designs.


Hi everyone! I'm Marcie Sharp and I'm a happily married momma of two kids lovin' life in rural southwestern Ontario, Canada. I enjoy every minute I get to spend in my small crafting corner making cards, and am usually busy trying to keep my 6 year old daughter from 'borrowing' my stamps.  Currently I work with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and occasionally guest design. Clean and simple designs are what I tend to stick to but lately I'm having fun experimenting with all sorts of techniques and branching out of my comfort zone.  If I’m not cardmaking then I am reading, geocaching with my family, having dance parties and taking any opportunity I can to visit with my friends!   



Next up, is the ever-fabulous Curtain Call Crew with their amazing projects!

Welcome to the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!!

This week we are inviting you to join us for...

pinterest

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Please welcome our returning Guest Designer,
Melody Rupple, A Paper Melody.


My name is Melody Rupple. I have always been crafty. I learned to sew when I was in my teens, made proms dresses, and went on to sew for my girls. I still have the simple scrapbooks I made in high school. I started making family scrapbooks when my children were young. I discovered card making about seven years, opening a whole new world of blogging, challenges, and on-line shopping!

I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to design for a number of wonderful stamp companies. I enjoy guest designing and playing along with card making and scrapbook challenges.





Next up, is the ever-fabulous Curtain Call Crew with their amazing projects!
