Post MAR18VSNE ~ How about a Desert Garden? ~ FRI Mar 23, 9 PM EST

Challenge: How about a Desert Garden?

Hostess: Kim (aka berlycece)

Keyword: MAR18VSNE
Date: Friday March 23rd, 9:00 pm EST

Hello stamping friends!!
I have lived in Illinois my entire life, so my springs are filled with rain, lush green lawns, and vibrant flowers. But not everyone has this climate. I have family and friends in Arizona and New Mexico where the landscape is filled with shades of terra cotta, contrasting with an open blue sky that looks so clear! Instead of tulips and crocus, my brother-in-law has various sizes of green cactus and succulents scattered over the wide open spaces of his property. When it does rain, the familiar shades of green are interrupted by pops of amazing color!
My challenge to you is to create a project featuring desert images and colors. My mind goes to the southwest area of the US, but any desert anywhere on the globe will work! Think cacti, lizards...or focus on the colors of the clay or sand. I can hardly wait to see what you create!



Once again, if you completed all 3 Mini VSN challenges before the Main event (Mini deadline was Thursday March 22nd) PLUS all of the regular VSN challenges, your name will go in a drawing for a Stamping Goodie Prize from one of your happy VSN Mods!


View the gallery for this challenge: Gallery at Splitcoaststampers
View the How Does Your Garden Grow Gallery:Gallery at Splitcoaststampers
View the How Does Your Garden Grow Challenge Thread: Forums at Splitcoaststampers


1. ALL Regular VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10 P. M. EST ON Monday, April 2.
2. You have 1 hour to complete the challenge, unless otherwise noted.....you do not have to count prep time!
3. We have a special gallery for the "How Does Your Garden Grow" VSN.
a) From the "Main Gallery" dropdown list on the first page of the uploader, choose Events and Special Collections.
b) From the Sub-gallery dropdown list, choose Virtual Stamping and Scrapbooking Nights ~ it's the last in the list.
c) From the new sub-gallery dropdown list choose How Does Your Garden Grow - it's the very top of the list.
4. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
5. Please do not combine VSN challenges...but you may combine any other challenges with a VSN challenge!

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your layout is seen. THANKS SO MUCH FOR PLAYING ALONG!!!

I am soooo curious to see your card, but it isn't showing up. This is a link to your gallery, but no desert card. Try again...or let us know if you need help.

My heart is always in AZ since my DGD and hubby moved there with my precious great grands!
So, this was a fun card, for sure, to create.

Loved this challenge because it gave me the opportunity to use a new stamp set, and for another reason you see if you read my description.

Thanks, Kim!

Used the photo provided in the original description of sky, cloud, and sand for inspiration. Thought this made a nice sympathy card.

I thought the colours in this background piece would probably work - and if not, the lizard gets me in .
