Challenge 214 - Word Prompt

Hello Crafty Friends...time for a new challenge

We are challenging you to be inspired at Time Out by a quote from Steve Martin!
"A day without sunshine is, you know, night." 

Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is CAS-UAL Fridays Stamps

We welcome the lovely and talented Trina Pham of Phamtastic Design as our Guest Designer.  Trina's work is always a delight to behold. Treat your self to a stroll through her blog for some awesome inspiration.

Here is a bit about Trina in her own words:

"Hello, my name is Trina Pham and I am from Canada.  It was a pleasant surprise when I accidentally discovered paper crafting, in particular card making.  My style is mostly CAS (clean and simple), but I love to create whatever comes to me.  I’m delighted to be back guest designing at Time Out."

Challenge 213 - On Vacation

Hi friends of Time Out!

We have a new fun challenge for the next fortnight: We are inspired by being on a vacation! You could think of a favorite location for your vacation... Activities that you like to do on your vacation... Basically anything that a vacation brings to your mind! 

This challenge is sponsored by Lawn Fawn with a $25 coupon to their store for our winner, voted by our DT. Thank you so much Lawn Fawn!  Our winner also gets called to guest design in a future challenge. 

 This time we welcome Marieke, winner of Time Out Challenge #209, as our Guest Designer. Marieke is a super talented card maker with a love of creating scenes and with mad coloring skills. Treat yourself to a stroll though her blog. You are sure to be inspired!

Here is a bit about our guest in her own words:

"I'm a 37 year old crafter from the Netherlands. I started crafting back in 2014. Since then my style of card making changed quit a bit! I started by making full cards with flowers and such, now i'm more into making scenes or even CAS cards are my more my style. One thing did not change though; almost all my cards include some form of coloring! I design for several brands and I love to be creative for them. Thanks for having me this time around."

Before we'll have a look at our DT samples we have a small announcement: our DT member Aarthi is taking a small break for some months. We hope to see her amazing cards here  again in the not too distant future! Al the best for Aarthi during her time off. Now, here's some inspiration from our design team!
