Circles


Hello everyone, thanks for your visit. Today we begin a new
challenge at My Time to Craft (MTTC)
Karen has chosen ..... Circles
It would be a shame to miss seeing the DT samples, why don't you 
pop over to the blog to see them and for more details.
I have a sq. scallop edge card. A dark green background.
The mat is printed words paper. I created 3 dark green circles
with a Spellbinders circle die, the inner circles were created with
a scallop edge circle die from The Works.
All papers and flowered paper is from a paper pad - Meadows...
by Craftwork Cards - sadly recently no more a company.
Another sad loss to the crafating industry. 
Hope you like my circles card.

Use Your Paper/One Sheet Wonder


Hello, a few weeks ago I started a new challenge blog, if you haven't as yet
popped to take a look then why don't you do it now.?
Today we start Challenge  #3 Use Your Paper or One Sheet Wonder.
Please go to Back to Basics and Beyond  Challenges for details and to see the
amazing and inspirational samples from the Design Team.
You will also meet the new members to our team.
The idea is to make a minumum of two cards or make as many as you
can using only one 12" x 12" sheet of paper/card for your backing paper.
My sheet is from a paper pad from The Works - ~Trendy Blue Lifestyle. 
I managed to make 12 cards - here they are in sets. 

Cards 1 - 3 

Cards 4 - 6

Cards 7 - 9

Cards 10 - 12


I know it took longer than a normal challenge but I was enjoying
doing something so different. Remember you can join in even if you 
only make two, but we would love to see more. Ha Ha. Have fun.
