It's challenge time!

Hello blogworld

Well the last two weeks have rushed by and now it's time for a new challenge over at Dream Valley Challenges - isn't time just flying by!  Am finding it difficult to believe we are in May already and June is rushing up on us.

So what is the new challenge over at Dream Valley, I can hear you asking and my reply is: it is to CASE a member of the Design Teams' project.

So to make things very clear - for anyone out there like me (oh my goodness, poor world if there are two of me in it!!) to CASE something means to Copy And Selectively Edit. So you pick something from one of the Design Teams' projects that you like and use that on your creation.

What you pick can be anything that appeals to you - colours, shape, layout, image - whatever, but you must say in your entry what it is that you are CASEing.

This fortnight we are sponsored by One Stop Card Crafts who are offering a £10 voucher and Crafty Ribbons who are offering as the prize the new Bev bag selection.

Right then, explanations over - here's what I made:

Front shot of card:

Detail shot of stamp:

I used:

Lili of the Valley - Astronaut: coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Blonde Moments - Sweet Celebrations: sentiment

Nestie square
Die-namics for the greetings tab

Papers and embellishments
We Are Memory Keepers - White Out

Do you know it's just occurred to me that, apart from the stamp which is only about 6 mths old, everything on this card is at least two years old (if not older) I'm such a bad hoarder!!

So I hope you will pop over to the Dream Valley and look at all the wonderful projects that have been created - get inspired - then have a go!!

See you soon,

A challenge, or two:

Totally Paper Crafts: 116 - No pesky girls allowed!

allsorts challenge: Week 254 - card for a man or boy

Lili's Little Fairies: Your Favourite craft tool - cuttlebug / dies, promarkers

and just for fun:

Lisa's - Waste not Wednesdays, still using up the old stuff! Though I have been a bit naughty and brought meself some new things at the beginning of the month!!
