Thank you DT Challenge!!

Wow, it's hard to believe this is our last challenge here on the blog! It has been a super FUN time full of gorgeous talent by the Design Team and all of those that have participated in the challenges. All I can say is




Our challenge this week, should you accept it, is to see any creation with a Thank You theme! You must use a Michelle Perkett Studio image in your project please.

Just in case you need a little extra inspiration, Michelle has offered a fantastic freebie this week at the beginning of this post.

Thank YOU Michelle! Not only for the freebie but for such lovely art for us to create and design with!

Here's a special note from Michelle to everyone:

Dear Friends of Michelle Perkett Studio,

As you know, I will be closing my Papercraft Planet group on Sept 1st and this week will be the last MPS Challenge here on our challenge blog and this week's challenge is a thank you to our wonderful DT ladies that have done such an amazing job inspiring us everyday. I want to thank all of our beautiful ladies for their hard work, incredible creativity and inspiration and of course for their friendship. You are all such talented and lovely women and I am so proud to call you my MPS Mermaids! Thank you girls for all that you have done for me and for our members and I wish you all the best in your future creative adventures!

I also would like to thank all of my Papercraft Planet members for your friendship and creativity over the last 2 years. Thank you to all of you for your lovely comments and for your participation in our challenges and of course for all your visits to my Etsy shop! I look forward to keeping in touch with all of you at the MPS Facebook page and on my personal blog for updates on my art business, new sketches and digital stamp designs and creative and inspirational posts as well! Thank you to all of you, you have all been such a blessing to me! We all look forward to your thank you creations this week!

And as an extra special thank you, I will be having a 50% off Sale for the duration of our Thank You DT Challenge this week until next Monday at 5 PM Pacific! Thank you all so much and I look forward to keeping in touch with all of you!

Love and Hugs,


For inspiration, take a look at some of our Design Team projects using this week's challenge theme...

Shelley used last week's vintage freebie...

Mari uses this little cutie...

And a special note from me to everyone - I am so thankful to have been part of such a great team, full of talent and compassion. The inspiration from everyone has been truly stunning and awe-inspiring. I wish everyone (especially Michelle) the best and can't wait to see us all achieve the things in life we deserve. Take care and come back Saturday for our Spotlight Saturday wrap-up! Thank YOU!

  14. I'm so sad! No CDAC or PCP and no challenge blog! Geez...

    Thank you all for the kind comments and inspiration during my 1st year in crafting!

  15. I will miss the challenges too! Love looking at what all of you ladies have created! Best wishes Michelle and thank you for everything!!

  16. Thanks so much for this image. That is such sad news!

  17. Waaahhhaa.. I can't believe you are closing the michelle challenge.. i looked forward to it every week, to see the new challenge and the inspirations from the DT. It has been a fun journey, but I guess some journeys must come to an end... thank you for all your inspiration.. i am sure we will cross paths again in the craft blogging world.. take care.. hugs

  18. Thanks for this very fitting image!

    I'm so sorry to hear about your group @ PCP & the challenge blog closing. :o( I have been one of those lurkers for way too long even though I would always pop in and see what people were creating with your fabulous images. I'm not a big challenge person, so I didn't join in as often as I should have especially since I have been buying and using your images so often over these past two years. I've really missed talking to everyone on PCP, but unfortunately life has a way of taking us away from the things that we love so much. I will miss you and the mermaids, but I'll continue to keep up with you on facebook (especially since I was one of your early fb groupies!). Take care, my dear friend, and I hope that you are able to accomplish everything that your loving heart desires! Cyber hugs!

  19. Thank you all for your nice comments, we all appreciate them and will miss you so much! Happiness and creativity to all of you and thank you for your support over the last two years!



  20. I'm very sad that this is the last challenge. I've added links to 2 thank you cards I've made, not that those 2 will really express my thanks for the fun and friendship I've experienced in the past year or so that I've been a part of the PCP group and a follower here.
    And the inspiration was always so wonderful!
    Thanks to you all!
