Top Picks Christmas Colors

Before I get on to giving you our top picks for this week I want to say thanks to everyone for your support over the past number of months. I would also like to wish each and everyone of  you a Very Merry Christmas and a Great New Year. We here at Come and Get It are taking the next couple of weeks off to spend time over the holidays with our families. So please come back on January 1st, as we are being sponsored by Bugaboo stamps for that Challenge, and of course we will have some new things happening in the coming year. Again thanks for your support. 
Cindy, Julie, Leslie and Shell.

Now onto the top picks for our last challenge of 2011.

I am gonna go with #43, Shelby. Her image is adorable, and I love  how she has it colored. The DPs are perfect, and I like how she finished it with the little corners. Just too cute 

Very hard decision this week because there are so many lovely cards. My pick this week is #16 Zulma because I loved her idea of swinging her image on the card. Very ingenious but darn cute as well!


Wow! Another great challenge with some fabulous entries….My top pick for this Challenge would be #39 Kimberly, it’s a pretty simple embossed card but the image is so adorably cute the image is from the famous designer Mo Manning.


My pick this week is Candy's Snowman. I just think it adorable, the glitter on the jacket the shine on the hat and the designer paper  is just perfect along with the stars. Thanks for playing along

Anne's card is my favourite this week, we had so many great entries in our challenge. I picked her's for my love of snowmen, but also I love all the added details, the fluffy hat, the snowflake sparkle, and the added charm for the great friend it is for, Thanks Anne for participating in our challenge. 

Hard decision this week. But my pick for this week is #15 Shelby's Angel. I think her colouring is superb and I just love how the image and the rest of the card compliment themselves. Stunning!

My Fave this week is #120 by Judy. Since caroling is such a big part of my love of Christmas, I was drawn to the adorable image and saying. I also love all the snowflakes...reminds me of when I was younger~

My top pick for the week………whew it’s another hard one with some many fabulous creations submitted, but Mary’s card #106 caught my eye using some non-traditional colors, layering several snow flakes in different sizes/colors (wonderful idea)…. and that Snowman image is so adorable from LOTV!

Center Step Top Picks

Hi Everyone! We would like to thank everyone who played along with us this week at Come and Get It Challenges. We would like to invite our Top Picks to be guest designers on a future Challenge. Please just let us know if you are interested! You all made it VERY difficult to choose, but here are our Top Picks:

Julia's card is awesome, love the image, the vintage look  to it and the ribbon is just the perfect accent for it, so her card is my pick for this week.

My pick this week is Julia's...I love the Santa she chose and I love the way she made her bow at the top.


All the entries were so fabulous this week but the one that caught my eye was #1  I just love the way her card just pops with it being a 3-D image. 

I have chosen Jan's card this week. The image is adorable, but I just LOVE the DP's she accented with, as well as the buttons and gingham ribbon!

Again, thank you to all who joined this week, and we hope you will stop back tomorrow and join in the NEW challenge!
Rubber Hugs,

Top Picks Leslie's Sketch Challenge

We had some great cards this week for our Sketch Challenge! Thanks to all who played along~
Here are the DT's Favorites:

My pick for this week is by Sarah. I love the layering on the turkey and her choice of paper. Terrific.

This week I have chosen Sarah's adorable Paper Pieced Turkey!  I LOVE the various DP's she used, and how she incorperated them into both the turkey and the background. Perfect~

My Favorite pick of the week…….drum roll please…..LOL  Is #4 Gro!  She has used some really adorable images making the card stand out with simple flourishes, snow flakes and a little twine.  Oh and to go the extra mile Gro decorated the backside of her card!

Hugs Shell♥

I have chosen Gro's card. I Love the images - how she colored them and also   how she thought outside of the box when it came to following the sketch. 
I  also Love how she decorated the front, back and inside was so cool.

Thanks again to everyone who played along, and we hope to see you all back tomorrow with our next Challenge!

Sketch Challenge

Hello Crafters. It's Leslie, and I am your hostess this week. I would like to thank you again for your support on our blog. If you are new to our blog, I'd like to encourage you to try something new this week.
It is Sketch Challenge week and my first challenge was to learn how to create the sketch using Stampin Up's Digital Studio. Second challenge was to create the card from my sketch. So I say to you all... onward and upward and learn new things.  You can make a card or anything else, as long as we can see the sketch in the project, that would be good. Here is the sketch followed by our Design Team Members. Oh by the way, you can change the shape of the elements if you wish, so if your main image is a square that's okay too. Also we would like to again thanks Judy for being a Guest Designer this week.  Thanks again for joining us.

Color Challenge

Hi Everyone, Cindy here for this weeks colour challenge. I have chosen some different colours for our challenge, this week. I am tired of the fall kind of colours, and I'm not quite into the traditional Christmas, this time around as I've used them a lot recently I was working on some orders. Anyway here are your colors for this week.
You may also use white instead of vanilla if you wish. 

Anyway, I hope you will play along with us this week, I can see so many different ideas with these colors. I personally have used them for Christmas like most of the designers this week. We also have a wonderful guest designer with us too. Judy has done a lot of our challenges, and we have asked her to join us for the rest of the month and she's agreed, so here are the cards from myself, Leslie, Julie, and Shell along with Judy's. Please click on the designers names to visit their blogs and give them some love. Thanks again and have a great week.

Hi Everyone, Here are the picks from your Design Team. Thanks to all for playing along this week. If you are a top pick and wish to be a guest designer on our challenge, then please email me Cindy at  Hope to see you playing tomorrow with our Colour Challenge.

When I saw #24……it had me with the cute little images of the mice in a cup. Juelmarie use of the digi’s in her simple thanks card is Adorable!

My pick this week is Lisa Somerville's card. I love the colours and the technique she used to create real looking fall leaves.

I love this tea light holder, I just think it is so sweet, the tilda is colored perfectly, and the fence is perfect, and the whole thing says autumn.

I think this is just so cute, I love the little characters, they say Blessings of Autumn. The layout the beautiful bow, and the papers used to back them are just perfect. The added acorn is the perfect finishing touch.

Top Picks for Anything Goes Challenge

Hi Everyone, what a great turn out for this challenge, and some great projects too, making the decision for our Top Picks very difficult. Here they are:

My pick this week is Shari's (#35) I loved her card because the image is so sweet and lovely. I also liked the layering she has done with the snowflakes on the front. Well done. 

After cruising through all the wonderful creations I finally decided on #74, I love how cheerful the card is and all the different elements to the card that Woo added ……’s a card that I would love to get in the mail to bring a smile any day!! Congrats Woo!!
Hugs Shell♥

I chose Diane's sweet Baby card, I just love the ruffle look of it and adding the sweet roses and pearls just finishes it off. So you are my pick for this week, thanks for joining our challenge. 

There were SO MANY amazing creations this week, but my choice this week goes to Katie!  Her adorable card caught my eye right away! The image is precious, but I also was drawn to to various layers. I LOVE the DP's she has used, as well as the ribbon, buttons and gorgeous flowers.
