Unique Challenge # 3

This week's challenge for the Cornish Heritage Farm's team is very unique. We've all been asked to think of the reasons we love CHF.

I designed a card to highlight a couple reasons.

Somebunny Loves You

Let me count the ways...

1. Technique Forum - Just when you think you've mastered everything, you can learn something new. Lori Craig wrote a fantastic tutorial on using Adirondack Paint Dabbers, in place of ink. I used this technique on my card. You can find it HERE in the CHF forum.

2. Community - While CHF is a small, family run business, they ship internationally. It's great to see our international friends join us on the forum.

3. Gallery - There are SO many wonderful projects. I love to see when friends post their creations in the CHF gallery. I get so much inspiration from all the talent around us! The layout inspiration for my card was from Michele's design:

Original card: Hoot and Holler

I loved the positioning of the piecing of the back panels and used her stitching elements and placement in my card too. It was a fun card to make. Thanks, Michele for a fantastic card design!!!

I think I could go on for hours about all the reasons I love CHF like,

* free domestic shipping on orders over $35

* high quality stamps

* some of the most amazing artists ever, who are tip-top in trend-setting!!!!

* partnerships for licensed images (like the Thomas Kincaid artwork)

* AND a big first - one that means so much to me... they created a team of designers (new to the scene / Fresh Faces), when the trend dictated only getting the best in the industry... they took a chance on me...

There are SO many more reasons. I'd love it if you check out the team of designers that have joined this challenge. I know they'll point out other awesome facts about CHF, as well as share their talent.
