Have you ever seen the show Iron Chef? It’s so cool to watch these two chefs, in competition with each other, take the same main ingredient and then bust their tails to develop an amazing dish to impress the judges!

So, I made a new friend a few months ago… Chaitali Narla, of Cuts, Crops & Creativity.  By day, she’s a software engineer!  And, as if that weren’t enough, she makes these adorable interactive cards and shares them on her blog!

A few months back she invited me to play in a challenge–I keep calling it a duel, LOL!– that she named Iron Craft, and I got such a kick out of her idea for a challenge blog!  Some of my favorite card makers have participated and it is SO fun to see what each designer comes up with.  I couldn’t have been more tickled to be invited to duel it out with her using the same stamp set. Head on over to see what my sweet new friend did with it, HERE! :)

ETA: Forgot I actually filmed this, so enjoy!
