.............from the forum girls.

As mentioned in a previous post, the lovely forum girls at Artistic put up all the challenges last month......................and gave the design team a break???

This was for Chris card challenge.

My first ever trishutter card made easily with the aid of a sizzix die!!

Makes it very simple to make one of these card.....might need to invest in that die.

Used my scraps form the beautiful Blae and Ivy collection.


This layout was for Laraine's challenge.

Ended up being more of a lift than I intended (blush)
Here is the original by the super talented Anita

Had a fun time with the tissue paper and glimmermist background.....doing another layout 'as we speak' using this technique.

.....and the close up!

There was also and off the page challenge by Sharon, a colour challenge by Noriel and a matchbox challenge set by Maree. I combined the colour and matchbox challenges, simply because I was extremely time poor this month, but I will post this shortly ;)

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back tomorrow with my last share before we head off to Tassie!! Whoooo Hoooo.
