It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge. This week's theme is Triple Threat, and we'd like you to use at least three items from the following list:

ribbon, flowers, lace, pearls, sprays/mists, punched elements or die cut elements, rhinestones, doilies (stamped will work too), dry embossing or scoring

 -OR- use three of one type of embellishment. Please make sure to tell us what you used!!

Here's how the gals have tackled this week's challenge:

Lauren
 used EVERYTHING on the list  :) 
Jessi
 die cuts, a doily, pearls, and flowers
Deena
flowers, ribbon, black pearls and a die cut and punch

ribbon, lace, a punch, die cuts and pearls

Leslie
ribbon, lace, and die-cut doilies
Barbara
 die-cuts, part of a doily, a ribbon, and two star rhinestones

Now it's your turn! I know it would be easy to just use three of one embellishment and we'd be perfectly happy if you do, but challenge yourself! Dig into your stash and use stuff! At least three stuff! Then come back and link us up below so we can see what you've made!

Mr Linky will be open until Monday, August 4th (eeeep, August!) at 11:55 pm EDT. To be eligible for our Saturday Shout-out, please limit your total number of challenge links to 13, including ours.

SOS BONUS Challenge - WINNERS!

Ladies, you have blown us away with your Christmas card creations for our bonus challenge with the lovely Jingle Belles. While there can be only one winner, we have also chosen two runners-up.

First, the runners-up (in no particular order):



We really liked the simplicity of this card. So stinkin' cute.




How clever is this door hanger project? And her coloring is fabulous.


And now for our winner (drum roll, please):



Ira's project knocked our socks off! She made a harmonica folding card of Mrs. Santa's house, and the detail on her pages is outstanding. 

All three of you can grab the Top 3 badge from our sidebar. And Ira, please contact me at LQHanna at gmail dot com so we can discuss your Guest Design Team position. 

Fabulous jobs, everyone, and thanks for playing along with our bonus challenge and the Jingle Belles!

The Shout-Out for our Wooden Ships challenge will be posted Saturday, as usual. Don't forget our current challenge: Can't Put It Down (or Away). We hope you'll play along. :)

SOS #160: Can't Put It Down (or Away)

Happy Tuesday. This week's challenge should be an easy one for you: we want you to use something that you can't seem to put down, or put away. Something you are using a LOT lately. This could be a technique, a pad of paper, a color combination, a tool, pretty much anything. It's easy, because you are already using it, right? So why not use it one more time and link it up to our challenge!

Please make sure to tell us what your "something" is, as it's not always easy to tell when we look at your project, thanks!

Here's what our talented gals have made to inspire you:

Leslie
(water color background technique using mini distress inks, an acrylic block, and water color paper)
Alica
background technique using embossing folders,inks and water color paper
Jessi
My new Spectrum Noir markers, Tiddly Inks images, and my ever-trusty never far away Stardust pen
My Distress Inks, and my hoard of dimensional butterfly stickers!
Lauren 
My watercolor paints, markers, and sewing machine!
Donna 
washi tape and bling strip
Barbara
I seem to be using a lot of Pink lately, and  my ovals.
