Gina K Thank You Blog Hop, for...

..our retiring Challenge Hostesses from STV! We have had some wonderful hostesses for the last 3 months, that have brought us such awesome and fun challenges! So a bunch of us senior DT decided to do a little something in a way of honoring them. Also, our DT coordinator, Jessica, has created an area that has all of the hostesses a page, with their different challenges...allll in ONE place! You can even download it if you want, she has also put them alll into PDF format ... Here is a link to that area:

Idea Center with the Challenges

Ok, now, for my cards! First up, I decided to make a card for Jennie Harper, our Sketch challenge hostess for the past 3 months (and just named as the CSS for the upcoming month, woot!) Here is the link to the sketch of Jennie's I followed:

And my card:


And next up, I wanted to make a card for Shannon Bracken's color challenge...I decided to use the black/white/kraft...my beloved kraft! Our could I resist?? Here it is:



I am keeping the yakking brief, cause there is alot more eye candy to see tonight too! But I do want to tell ALL of the challenge hostesses, how awesome they ALL were over the last 3 months! Here they all are:

Tonight several GinaK Designs designers are joining together to host a special thank you blog hop to our recently retired StampTV Challenge Hostess Team. The four designers we're honoring tonight have provided weekly challenges for the STV members for the entire months of December, January, and February and we are so thankful for their inspiration and hard work!

Each participating designer was asked to choose one challenge shared during the past 3 months and make a card to share on their blogs tonight as well as to send that card to the hostess. 


Visit these links to see all the projects we've prepared for our alumni hostess team:


And, the new StampTV Challenge Hostess team is also joining in on the hop tonight!
