RetroRubber's 100th Celebration

Welcome to the first ever blog hop for the Retro RubberChallenge!  We are changing things up a bit to celebrate our 100th challenge!   Here’s the scoop…play along with our celebration themed tic tac toe challenge!  Then hop around to all of the design team blogs and leave a comment!  Each team member is offering up some surprise retro (new but older than a year) goodies to one lucky person who leaves a comment on their blog.  That means there will be seven winners!  As always, we will be listing the five top picks with the winning pick receiving a prize for this challenge only.

*You do not have to enter the challenge to win but you must leave a comment on the design team blogs in order to have a chance to win!  

So here is our challenge grid:

No automatic alt text available.

And here is my card:

I chose the bottom row of glitter, heat embossing and cake!!  My cupcake is from Papertrey, and I have had it for probably six or eight years..maybe even longer!!!  The bottom part of the cupcake is designer paper which I stamped with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder.  The icing was stamped with Berry Burst, re-stamped with Versamark (using my Stamparatus), and then embossed with Heat and Stick powder.  After I reheated it, I sprinkled some Martha Stewart glitter on top and heated it again to set it...it REALLY sparkles!  I stamped a little candle to pop on top and added a few sequins to the diamond-shaped panel.  All the papers are from Cute Girl by Crate Paper; the sentiment is by Altenew. 

I used another piece of the same paper from the front for the inside, adding a couple of sentiments and some stars:

Such happy colors!  SO...now you need to comment and hopefully play along with us!  Just be sure to use a stamp that's at least a year old, and tell us how old it is!  Remember, there are prizes to be had!!  You might be a lucky winner!  If you're hopping along, you probably came from Jan Clothier's blog, Thinking Stamping!  The next one along the hop is Jane Knudsen at See Jane Stamp!  And here is a list of ALL the  Design Team participating:

LeAnne Pugliese - you are here!

Help us celebrate 100 challenges!!  We can't wait to hear from you!  

Cassidy has a program on the computer where she can make word finds!  It's very cool!  Here she is, deep in thought, thinking of words to make a puzzle for me!

And here's my puzzle....see the title?  Clever girl!   All the words are at the bottom!  It was fun!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I love all that sparkle on your card - Congratulations on the 100 challenges. I had a go at the word search too - it was great fun.

LOVE your glittery icing! And using the rhomboid shape for the focal image is so clever: something a bit different. Your colour combination is lovely too. Great card, as always, LeAnne.

Absolutely adore the glittery frosting on the fun cupcake! The design of the card is great and of course using more patterned paper on the inside just finishes the card off nicely! Fantastic job teamije!
