The challenge is now officially closed. There will be no new content going forward.

This challenge blog was a private challenge blog created by myself (this challenge is not affiliated with Lawn Fawn). I was not asked or hired to create and run this challenge.  To read more about the creation of the challenge blog, please go HERE!

The good news is the blog will NOT be deleted. You can always refer back to the existing posts for inspiration if you would like!

Winners: Christmas (Final Challenge) - Queen of the Green, Top Mow-It-Alls, Honorable Gnomes

Hey everyone, it's Christy here. Feeling a little bittersweet today as I draft the final Winner's Post of our last ever Lawnscaping Challenge. I've been on this Design Team since it's inception in January of 2011. I was one of the lucky chosen by Laurel to take this incredible journey with her, inspired by our deep love of Lawn Fawn stamps. It has been an amazing six years. I've worked with so many talented artists, gotten to know and be inspired by so many of you talented ladies who've played in our challenges, and I've made some wonderful friendships as well. I'm so, so sad to see it end, but I'm so grateful for the time we've had together here. I hope you'll stay in touch via social media. I believe that Laurel will have one final farewell post for you all, so let's go ahead and get to our winners.

Our Queen of the Green will receive a FREE stamp set, generously donated by Lawn Fawn.

And our Christmas Queen of the Green is:

Congratulations, Zsofi! 
This sweet little scene just stole our hearts.
Please contact Laurel at laurelbeard at me dot com within 48 hours to claim your prize.

Moving on to our Top Mow-It-Alls:

Such a wonderful collection of cards!

And last but not least, our Honorable Gnomes:

So many wonderful cards and projects! Please grab your winners badge (last chance) from the tab above and display it on your blog with pride. You earned it!

Huge thanks to everyone who played along in this and in every challenge. We could not have done it without you.

Joy Ride

Good morning everyone! Roxanne here. I've got a little holiday card up today that I created. It's simple, but I really like the watercolor look.

Makes me think of snow. I just love the scene here with the little car pulling a cute trailer with a festive tree on top heading home to decorate it. Hey, I have an active imagination ;)

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my little card and that you have a happy holiday season. If you missed the announcement about the final Lawnscaping Challenge, please go here.

Lawnscaping Challenge: Christmas themed and a heartfelt goodbye

Hello. Laurel here with you today. Today is a bitter sweet post. We are here to share our latest challenge with you but also announce that this will be the last Lawnscaping Challenge.   We have thoroughly enjoyed our five years together! Five years? Can you believe it? It seems like not long ago that I launched this challenge and can't believe how quickly it grew!  But it is come time to say goodbye and goodbyes are never easy. Most of you know, this challenge was created by me. I came up with the idea, found a fabulous group of designers who were willing to work with me. Created the name, logo, badges.  This challenge is not affiliated with Lawn Fawn.  I was not asked or hired to create this challenge. It's just an idea a measly Florida girl came up with five years ago.  And the rest is history.

  • To our followers:  We have such an unbelievably talented audience and we can't thank you enough for riding along with us on this inspirational journey. If you just hopped over to the blog and checked it out of if you played along in our challenges. YOU are what kept this challenge going all these years and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
  • To our amazing sponsors, Ellen Hutson and Lawn Fawn: Thank you. Thank you for supporting us these 5 years! Your support and encouragement has meant the world to us and I will forever be grateful.
  • To my design team - past and present: You all amaze me... Such a talented group of designers and friends! I am honored that you served along side me. Truly. I'm going to stop because I am getting teary eyed.

Today's final challenge is all about  Christmas or any holiday that you celebrate as I know not all of you celebrate Christmas.

We are sponsored by Lawn Fawn who is sponsoring this challenge with a free stamp set of the winner's choice! We just heart them! Thank you Kelly Marie and gang for sponsoring us!
