Thanks to all of you who took part in last months lace and butterfly challenge. The winners are in the post below, scroll down......
On to this month, our generous sponsors, Letraset, are offering two of you the chance to win one of the brand new stamp sets. You can see cards I made with them HERE and HERE, and go HERE to get all the details of the packs. The winners will be able to choose which set they want. You get a large exclusive stamp, and three promarkers in each set
On to this months challenge - here is my sample card for you. Any ideas what the challenge is?
Does this help?
use something on your card that wasn't intended for cardmakingI found the mesh thing in a pound store, the string and green hemp are garden string, and the cardboard is a torn up box. Buttons and Lace don't count, think outside the box and search your dollar/pound/office supply stores. It doesn't have to be the main focus of the card. The card must be made for this challenge, no back linking please, and you can enter as many cards as you like, and enter it in as many challenges as you like, as long as each one has a 'found' object in the design. If you don't have a blog, you can still enter, the easiest way is to put a link to a Picassa or similar photo album, or if all else fails, email me with a photo of your creation
Two prizes - one for the card that I think is the most creative use of your chosen non-cardmaking item(s), and one will be randomly drawn. So get cracking, tear up old newspapers, make flowers out of tissue paper.......and have fun!
The challenge will be open until Easter Monday, the 9th April. Good luck everyone, I wonder how many entries there will be for this one....oooh, I just spotted some bubble wrap, now I am sure I can make something out of that....see you tomorrow
