We have April Winners!

Share a Smile with us for our
current challenge! 

We loved seeing your Three of Something creations for our April challenge! From 26 amazeballs entries, we somehow chose our NAUGHTY and NICE picks...

NICE: 

An awesomely inked background, and super-cute pooches — we love this! Take a look:


NAUGHTY:

A good Stella card is always hard to resist, and E.K. Gorman also managed to combine our three of something demand (colours, papers, dew drops) and our option of an Easter twist. Here's another look: 


Congratulations to Ma-Mi and E.K Gorman, and thank you to everyone who entered last month. Our current challenge, Share a Smile, continues until May 25th, so you have lots of time to join us.

Let's bring on the talent in the form of some fabulous smile-inducing cards from our Troublemakers:

Feeling Mad as a March Hare?
Show us by playing along with our


Love really was in the air last month — we had 21 fabulous entries for our February challenge! Of course some of the cards were naughtier on the subject than others... just the way we like it! After some tough decision-making, here our our top picks for February:

NICE:
GAIL!!!
Adorable image, amazing colouring... there was lots to *love* about Gail's sweet card. Here's another look:


NAUGHTY:
EK GORMAN!!!
A combination of a perfectly sassy sentiment and the use of the optional colour theme really caught our attention and tickled our funny bones. Here's another look at EK Gorman's fun card:


Congratulations to our winners, and a heartfelt (see what I did there? 😝) thank you to everyone who took the time to play along. We'd like to remind you that our current challenge, Mad as a March Hare: Feature a Creature, is going strong, and we'd love you to join us. (Psst: we have prizes!!!)

Naughty or Nice Challenge #37 - Mad as a March Hare… Feature a Creature.

With Spring officially on the horizon I wouldn't be surprised to see the odd Mad March Hare hanging around here at Naughty or Nice. Let's face it, a crazy bunny or two would fit in nicely!

For our for March theme we'd like your card to feature a creature: real or imaginary, the choice is yours, and we can't wait to see what you create. Once again, Danielle has done us proud with another fabulous graphic... You've gotta feel sorry for that dormouse!
The Troublemakers are delighted to announce that the lovely Jodie at Bugaboo Stamps has agreed to sponsor four of our challenges during 2017 and the first of those challenges is this one!




In addition to our much coveted blog badge, our March Top Pick Sweetheart and our March Top Pick Little Devil will each receive a $12.00 voucher to spend in the Bugaboo store.


Here's what the Troublemakers have been up to this month. Those of us with a printer couldn't wait to get creating with some of the gorgeous Bugaboo stamps that Jodie gave us to work with.
