You're currently viewing Splitcoaststampers as a GUEST.

You can join our incredible papercrafting community at NO COST. So what are you waiting for?
Ann (aka amf1066) sent me this a long time ago. I really love the awesome color scheme and the soft fuzzy look of the bedding - of course, it could just be the idea of sleeping on the beach This bedding can be found at Soft Surroundings.
Make sure you use the keyword: IC114 (no spaces or extra characters)
Now, for an announcement. I am stepping down as your hostess for the IC. I seemed to have overwhelmed my life and until this school year is up, I need to drop a few of my 'fun' things. I want to thank you ALL for being the bestest players!
So, I suppose you'd like to know who will be your hostess now? Well, I tell ya, this woman is always giving me some great ideas and I just knew she'd make a great hostess! Please give a warm welcome to Stephanie (aka SmilynStef) - she will be your IC hostess starting next week.
How to Play View the attached image. You may be inspired to recreate the piece - but that isn't necessary...get your inspiration from the colors, layout, or 'theme'. Don't worry - no card is 'wrong'! There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild -- be *inspired* and go get stamping!
Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Thank you.
You have been a great hostess Karen! It's been so much fun getting started here on SCS and this weekly challenge is what got me going! Thanks for taking personal time out to make it fun for us! With that said - Welcome Stephanie! Looking forward to your reign!!
Wow, Karen, we sure will miss you! Thanks for weeks and weeks and weeks of fun! You've stretched me!
Welcome, Stef! What a fun job you have taken on! Can't wait to see what you have in store for us!

Thank you Karen for faithfully hosting the IC each week for us CCers. While I find this challenge to be the most difficult, I keep playing because it is also the most rewarding and is such a teaching tool. You have truly brought us some amazing pieces to be inspired by! I hope you are still able to find the time to visit us here at SCS by posting your wonderful artistry, and writing a quick "hello" from time to time. Again, thank you!
Now I'm off to play, although I find the background scenery more inspiring than the main piece. I suppose that's not intended to be the focus correct? hehe.

Karen - thank you for all your hard work and dedication on this weekly challenge and the VSN's you've been involved in - I'm sure you'll jump back in at some point - I totally understand the overwhelmed thing!!
Welcome Stef - looking forward to the wonderful inspiration pieces you will find to challenge us with!
Karen, thank you for all the kind words and your dedication. I will never forget you -- you were the first person on SCS to reply to my questions. Thanks and all the best. And a warm welcome to Stephanie!
Karen, I have only been doing these challenges a short time and am very sorry you are not going to be the hostess with the mostess any more. You have such inspiring ideas. I pray that this time off will take some of the pressure off, but please keep checking in. God bless.
Welcome Stephanie. Thank you for being willing to take on this challenge. I look forward to seeing what fun and interesting challenges you offer each week.
