Hi all, it's Sunday which means it's time for the fortnightly challenge over at That Craft Place Challenge Blog and the challenge is Bling. I had real problems with my DT piece, I really didn't know what to make, I love sparkle but couldn't seem to come up with anything lol. In the end I decided to do a jigsaw hanging and to be honest most of my ideas seemed to change as I went along with it as most art projects do :-) but I'm happy with the end result. I would love to enter my project into the challenges over at Lets Create and Craft Challenge which is Anything but a Card and Papertake Weekly Challenge which is Things that make you go Awwwww.
I used papers, stamps, flowers from That Craft Place Shop where Lisa sells some fantastic craft products, she also puts up lots of daily offers on our Facebook Page and we put lots of inspiration and tutorials (I'm in the middle of another tutorial lol) over at That Craft Place Shop Blog, why don't you pop on over to our challenge blog and see some great inspiration on Bling from the DT and have a go at entering :-).
Right I shall be off now, I decided to carry on sorting and got down all my Christmas craft to sort out!!! plus also I guess it's time to start doing some Christmas bits!!!! Normally I am always too late but this year I want to try and get the use of all my new stamps that I got last year and not used!!!!. Believe it or not I always buy mince pies the minute they are on the shelf which normally is end of September, beginning of October but last week I bought them, when I showed the OH he nearly had a heart attack, he loves mince pies but couldn't believe they were already in the shops lol lol. Thank you for visitng me today, Happy Crafting :-) Kerry xxx
