Challenge 18 - Recycled Farmyard

Caro's turn this week and this is her theme. We have sponsorship for this challenge from Digital Delights and Crafty Ribbons, so two prizes up for grabs.

My camera flashed red battery at me when I tried to take this shot, so I apologise, I had to take it very quickly and it not actually a very good picture. I used the Clara Cow stamp from Digital Delights. I think she is cute with the little hearts for a nose! Coloured with promarkers and decoupaged ( sorry, I know that doesn't show). The backing papers are from Pink Petticoat, and sort of recycled as they were originally printed for another project and then rejected. The real recycled element is the lace and flowers. Both were cut from some foamy packaging material that protected an item I purchased in the post. I used Edgeabilities for the lace and bitty blossoms for the flowers.

Come to the challenge over at Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog to check out the other design teams ideas, and of course to enter and win yourself some goodies.

Challenge 17- School's Out For Summer.

It is time for the next challenge. The fortnights zip by so fast!

It is my turn to set the challenge this time and  I was thinking about what to set, a new shape card? old shape card we have all forgotten about?....a certain element? colour? many choices!
I decided in the end to go for School's Out For Summer. I want to see children having fun. I decided on this theme because i was thinking about how hard my Children had worked this year towards their exams. Not that they are children any more at 20 and 17, but they have worked so hard and really were ready for the Summer Break. So that's what I want to see, any project that shows or involves children having fun!

We have a sponsor for this challenge. Robyns Fetish.


They are offering a great prize of your choice of 5 Digital Images to the winner, as decided by our Design Team. There is such a choice on their website, I would be hard pressed to choose. Come to the challenge blog at Quirkycrafts Challenge Blog, show us your entry and you might have the difficult choice to make.
