Peachy Challenge 15 :: Just Cards

Hello and HAPPY FRIDAY! 
We are back today with a new CHALLENGE!
Before I go any further, though, I want to let you know we had a little snafu with our Top Peach and Top 3 codes. 
 IF your code is no longer working on your blog, please use the new codes pasted on the right side bar. These new codes work perfectly, and I apologize for having to update them.

Alrighty then, who's ready to get started?
 This week is ALL ABOUT CARDS!

Create a card using your own background!

We'll be awarding "TOP PEACH" to the player who uses their Peachy Keen Stamps this week and our two runner ups will receive a spiffy badge to display on their blog!

- Design must be new
- Must be a card, with a custom-created stamped background - Link up by 5/2 - 3:00 pm EDT
- Remember, you don't have to use our stamps to link up, but they are required to earn TOP PEACH! 

Of course, our designers are ready to inspire you with some of their very own stamped backgrounds, and boy, did they knock 'em out!

Aren't they AWESOME? 
Be sure to pay our designers a visit if you were inspired. I know we all  love hearing what you guys enjoy and what you'd like to see more of!

Now, onto our winners from our last challenge:
Here are our TOP THREE:

We adore Carla's clever astronaut spinner card! The Everyday Character Face fits the style of her paper and die cut PERFECTLY! Check out her post for a little action demonstration of the astronaut!

 Cindy's garden project was so inspiring, I can't wait to make something like this with my girls this summer for our veggies and flowers. How adorable are her garden markers with TONS of Peachy goodness?


We thought Jessica's treat box was such a great interpretation of our colors last week!
The helicopter is absolutely adorable with the Everyday Character face she used!

Congratulations, ladies, and congratulations to our TOP PEACH, Jessica!
Ladies, please snag a badge from the sidebar, and Jessica, please email Adrianne -
adrianne {at} peachykeenstamps {dot} com
letting her know you won our "Teacher Says" stamps and your address. 
She'll get them right out to you! :)

This week's contest is JUST FOR FUN meaning we won't be giving out a prize, but we will still be honoring our TOP PEACH!

Don't forget, next week, we'll be giving away our FIRST 
$30.00 Gift Certificate
 to one random player who has not missed a single challenge this month, so you don't want to miss playing along in a single one! 

Good luck everyone!
