CHF Challenge Chicks # 3

Another week of fun ahead for the CHF Challenge Chicks. I was fortunate enough to be able to choose today's challenge called: What I love about Cornish Heritage Farms.

What don't I love about CHF???

I have to tell you that I have the privilege of working with an amazing team of ladies as well as owners Liz and Richard. My design work is made easy when I am able to chat with the design team on a daily basis--they cheer me on, push the boundaries on my design ability and inspire me daily. The best part is they are there through the thick and thin of life and even go as far as calling me or sending me a card when they know I need a hug. Could I ask for anything better than that?

Here are some of the things I {heart} about Cornish Heritage Farms:

1) I {heart} that when there are new stamps available you can find a quick link from the main page. Did you know that there is also a new products button on the index page?

2) I {heart} the gallery. It is FULL of fab examples and I just adore the support from the team and the members. It is always nice to see a new way to use a stamp set/stamp. What I also love is the Keyword Gallery Searches—you can use keywords to search for your favourite products, stamp sets, gallery members etc.

3) I {heart} the variety of art from the cute styles of Kim Hughes and Tom Allen, to the detailed and breathtaking Thomas Kinkade images, to the grunge offered in The Rummage Bin by Lesley Langdon, to the classic stamps in the Mona Lisa Moments collection to the backgrounders! Don't forget there is also Aimee Nugent's modern style, the Elvis Line and Asela's gorgeous images.

4) I {heart} the new Prism Paper Packs The paper packs are grouped by like colour. Do you know how easy it is to custom design your cards using one paper pack??? That takes the guess work away! Since I am a creature of order/coordination, balance (*lol*) I like things to flow together. Check out THIS coordinated card using the Majestic prism pack.

As a paper *nut* who adores colour, I thought it would be appropriate to share a card today that highlights one of my fav paper packs: Razzleberry.

Naturally, you can add any neutral set of cardstock to the Prism paper packs.

This card was inspired by my t-shirt . If I get a chance to upload a photo of it you can see for yourself *smiles* I kept with the clean lines and edgy colours...including that silver group of swirls.
