Announcing the It's All Green to Me Challenge Winners!

I can tell what a fun time all y'all had in the It's All Green to Me Challenge, friends. There's a chorus of creative cards that incorporate green phrases in clever ways! And once again, I had a TOUGH time deciding on winners, so much so, that we've got 6 winners this time around instead of our usual 5.

I know. You're so disappointed. ;)

I'd like to give a nod to the following designers for their contributions to this contest: anya.schrier, karindotcom, and laurelseabrook. Good job ladies! And a special thanks to everyone who took the time to enter!

And now, without further delay, I give you the winners:

Go Green Card by Sarah Martina

Moxie Fab Alert: I just love that she used the go green stamp as the main part of the tree, love the material she used to create the tree trunk, love the clouds in the background, love the gingham "grass," love the butterflies--love, love, love!

Recyclin' My Wheels Tag by CloudsShadler

Moxie Fab Alert: I extra love the play on the word "cycle" here! I also love the trendy elements she's combined in the tag: bicycle, cool clouds, fun tree, and a corrugated background. Moxie fab!

Fashion Tip Card by Laura ODonnell

Moxie Fab Alert: OK. Once again, this style just makes me laugh. These stamps are just so silly and yet they take themselves so seriously. AND, Laura has an amazing way of combining them to make her point. I like that this is a play on how "fashionable" it is to be green these days. I love that she's popped the silly bird in green out from the black and white Victorian background that looks like wallpaper, as though we were watching a fashion show. I mean, whodathunk that you could combine these elements to create a "green" card? Apparently Laura did and she did it well. Bravo!

Eco Cards Set by shannavineyard

Moxie Fab Alert: Each of these cards, created on earthy kraft cardstock, pairs an ecological symbol with a catchy green phrase. They are understated, they are well-composed, and they are moxie fab!

Take Care Card by iheartart760

Moxie Fab Alert: I love the pairing of the sentiment with the earth "topiaries." So clever. And design-wise, well, she's done a great job echoing the circular shape of the earths in the polka dot, I love the notebook edge, and the black ribbon adds a moxie fab pop!

Imagine Card by crafterthoughts

Moxie Fab Alert: What can I say but this card has a ton going for it! When I saw it I'm pretty sure that my heart skipped a beat--I mean, look at that peace sign sun! Look at that heart leaf! I love that the sun is peeking out from the clouds as though saying, we're not there yet, but we can imagine a bright, green day! Just imagine!

What do you think, friends? Aren't these projects just fantabulistic? Click here to see all the rest of the yummies.

Now, I'm going to step outside the blog box to give you a little pep talk, my friends. There's a call that just came out for Paper Crafts magazine. It's for our March/April 2010 issue and there's absolutely no reason why any one of you couldn't be included in its pages. If you're into entering these contests, as so many of you are, then isn't a call for submissions just another contest? I encourage all of you to click here to see what we're looking for. Remember your comments on this blog post? Now's your chance. No more putting it off for another day. I mean seriously. When's the last time you got something you really wanted without actually trying? I can tell you that pretty much not much just ends up in my lap. Besides, we're looking for some Really Fun Stuff! Whaddayasay? Come on, you have nothing to lose except an opportunity!

OK. I'm back in the blog box. Winners, email your addresses to me at cedvalson@ckmedia.com and I'll get your prizes out to you. I will also email you your exclusive Moxie Fab World Challenge Winner Badge for your blogs! Woot!

Friends, leave a comment saying which project you like and why! I'm sure these winning ladies would all love to hear from you! In the meantime, I'm putting the finishing touches on tomorrow's blog post announcing the next Moxie Fab World Challenge, and trust me, it's in the bag!

Feeling happy all over,

~Cath

Tracey Cuccia said...

what great projects!! I'm typically a lurker here -- but couldn't NOT comment. I think the one that 'speaks' to me the most is the last card, 'imagine'...I thought the same thing as you, with the clouds obscuring it a bit...but it's right there, waiting for us...though I did have a good chuckle over the 'green is the new black' card too -- GREAT take on the challenge...brilliant even.

Congratulations to all of the winners!! AMAZING stuff!

Thespa said...

What a fantastic set of cards. It's impossible to pick a favorite. "Go Green" is charming, "Recyclin' my wheels" is colorful, "Fashion Tip" is inventive and inspiring, the "Eco Cards Set" is absolutely darling, "Take Care" is elegant, and "Imagine" is blissful.
