You're My Inspiration!

Hello, crafty friends! I hope you're having a wonderful summer. It's Nancy here today, with the honor of hosting a brand new challenge here at the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog.

First up some exciting news. We are thrilled to announce that we have two new members joining the Frilly and Funkie Design Team; Autumn Clark and Sara Emily Barker will be well known to many of you as hugely talented designers, and it is fantastic to welcome them

For the next two weeks our theme will be 'You're My Inspiration.' Simply find any type of image or photo that inspires you to create a vintage or shabby chic project. Please post your inspiration image on your blog along with your project, and tell us what it is you love about it. The inspiration image does not need to be included as part of your project, just on your blog post.

At the end of the challenge the team will choose their top four picks. Our first place winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot here at Frilly and Funkie. Three additional talented participants will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and adheres to the challenge guidelines will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique!

The guidelines for entering are simple; create a new vintage or shabby chic project following the challenge theme, link it below to your post (not just your blog) and include a link back to this challenge in your post. You can combine our challenge with up to 10 challenges (including this one) to be in with a chance of winning. Make sure you follow the guidelines, as unfortunately we have had to eliminate entrants from the prize draws in the past when they have entered too many other challenges. If you are entering through a public forum (such as Instagram) you'll need to include the words Frilly and Funkie Challenge. Also, please be sure to turn off your Word Verification so our design team can leave comments on your blogs.

This week the Funkie team are here to share their own inspiration projects;

Sara Emily Barker- sarascloset

Suzanne Czosek - Suzz's Stamping Spot

Jenny Marples - Pushing The Right Buttons


The Frilly team is here to share their own inspiration projects:

Kathy Clement - Kathy by Design

Autumn Clark - SewPaperPaint

Cec Wintonyk - CW Card Creations

Nancy Dynes - Tattered Treasures

Thank you so much for stopping in. Now we turn the challenge over to our favorite people... YOU! I'm beyond excited to see the inspiration behind your beautiful art! Remember to stop by the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog tomorrow to see what our latest Guest Designer has in store for us, and then again next Wednesday, when the Funkie team will share their gorgeous projects. May all that is lovely and wonderful come your way!
