Hello friends!
I'm so glad you could join us for another Peachy Keen Challenge!
WOW you all really did some amazing things with our 3-D Potluck Challenge last week.
Such cute and creative ways to display food and food related items for a potluck celebration!  Thank you to everyone who played along.  We will get to our winners in just a bit, but first, I want to remind you that we still have a goal to switch this challenge over to the new website by the first of October.  

REMINDER:  The plan is for this to be our last week to post on this blog, and we would love for you to head over to the new website this week and share your challenge projects with us there
 just so you'll see how playing along in the forum where we will be from now on.
  All you need to do is go to the new website, and click on the "Community" tab.  Once you're there, click on the Challenges link, and you will see the most current challenge at the top of the challenge page.  Simply reply with a comment that includes a link to your blog or gallery post, but please copy and paste the actual URL of where your entry can be found.  That's it!  We'll follow the links to visit your blog or gallery to choose our Top 3 and Top Peach.

Peachy Keen Challenge 13:37 :: A Sketch

Boy has it ever been a busy  week at Peachy Keen Stamps!
As many of you know, we've been in the process of switching over to a new all inclusive website, and we've hit a few bumps along the way.  Please rest assured that we have been working double over time to get everything up and running in a timely manner, and as I said, it's been a bumpy endeavor at times.  We  know that all this hard work is going to be worth it and we just want to make sure we get it right!  We want to be able to bring you a fabulous, user friendly site where you can enjoy everything PKS related in one place.  That's the plan anyway!  We're still working on some areas of the site, but we will DEFINITELY let you know when EVERYTHING is running like we intend.  Feel free to drop by and look around, but do take note that you will need to create a new Log In for the new site, as your old Log In information will NOT transfer over.  That should do it, though.  Once you have that, you'll be good to go!  Here's a link to the new website.

You'll notice when you get there that Kathy and Dave have a special little surprise for you to thank you for your patience with us this week.  Enjoy 25% off ALL stamps on the website through the end of this month!!  We have the best customers ever!!!


It was so exciting to see what each of you came up with for our Anything Goes Challenge, and there were truly some creative things happening.  It's always fun for us to see what YOU'RE creating with your PKS stamps. Before we get to our winners from last week,  let's see what's on tap for this week!

Challenge 13-37 :: A Sketch

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

  • Design must be new, created specifically for this challenge
  • Must be a card or layout that follows the sketch provided
  • Link up by 9/18 at 11:00 PM CDT
  • Remember, you don't have to use our stamps to link up, but they are required to earn TOP PEACH!  

I always look forward to seeing what our designers create each week to inspire you!
I'm sure that's something you look forward to as well. 
Here's what they have for us this week...

Aren't they awesome? Be sure to stop by their blogs to see which stamps they used and to find more gorgeous Peachy inspiration!!! 
Let's see who made TOP 3 and TOP Peach from last week's Anything Goes challenge!
