It's that time of the week again, when those zany ladies from Shirley's 2 Girls want to challenge stampers everywhere to participate in their fun sketch challenges. Of course it's called "Twisted Thursday" because there is a twist to the sketch. This week's twist is to ADD HARDWARE. We'd love to have you all play along with us! If you have Shirley's 2 Girls stamps, please use them!! We'd love to see what you do with them. If you don't own any S2G stamps (YET! hehehe), we'd still love for you to play along with us. Please create a project using this week's sketch AND add hardware (brads, clips, staples, or any other type of metal hardware that you might have in your stash!). Upload your project to your favorite online gallery - if you upload to SCS or PCP, please use the keywords S2GSC3 AND shirleys2girls. Then post a direct link to your creation in a comment ON KAROLYN'S BLOG. The winner will be chosen using, so everyone has a chance to win.

Wanna know what you can WIN if you play along? Well, those sweet ladies at Shirley's 2 Girls have offered up a stamp of your choice from all the fun images that they carry, AND your card will be showcased on Karolyn's blog, as well as, in the Shirley's 2 Girls Gallery. Pretty sweet, huh? So, what the heck are you waiting for?!! Run, don't walk, to your craft room and create something fabulous for this week's Twisted Thursday challenge! The challenge runs from today (3/19/09) until midnight (PDT) on Sunday, 3/22/09.

Need some inspiration?

Well, here's my sample. The image I used is called "KITE" (SG 160).
Are Kites not just the epitome of SPRING? I used some fun designer
paper from Shirley's 2 Girls in the "Dream Package." I just love the
quirkiness, designs and fun colors that this package offers!! (the polka dots are PTI) Need
more inspiration? Check out the fun creations that the rest of the
Ladies with Attitude have prepared for you (They are all linked
on the sidebar to the right. These ladies rock, so get ready to have your socks knocked off!!

Justine, I love your card! Deidre hit the nail on the head. You are the bomb and you nailed this baby! Awesome mix of colors and patterns. Love the detailing -- those little tails are the cutest! Of course, I'm jealous cause you got the stamp i've been eyeing!
Smiles, Pat

(PS Quick question.... What type of printer do you have? I am having a h..... of a time printing my images. We have a new wireless printer that jams when I use cardstock. Am about ready to get a second printer I'm so frustrated).

Wow Justine...what a great card. I have lots of fond memories of flying a kite as a kid and this card brought them all back to me! Fantastic job with this creation.
