New Challenge Blog

Afternoon from a rainy windswept Scotland! I went out to the shops this morning and decided to walk - came back like a drowned rat! Did enjoy the fresh air though :o)

I was having a wee browse through the blogs that I follow and came across a post from Jacki, with details of a new challenge blog that is starting up. Here's the link . They also have a Craft Shop called Craft Room which you can visit here.Well worth a visit - go on, you know you want to.

They also have some great blog candy on offer, which is on my sidebar.

As if that isn't enough, they are also looking for design team members for the new challenge blog.

You have to choose three different projects that you feel represent your style of crafting. I thought I'd give it a try and here are the three projects I have chosen.

I made this card for my nephew's birthday. The stamped image has the little frog trying to get away from the boy (as you can see), I thought it would be quite fun to have the frog jumping right out of the card, so I cut round him and then mounted the image and raised the frog with a 3D foam square.

The second card I have chosen was a commission for a friend's mum and dad's 40th wedding anniversary. I quite like trying different styles of cards. This shaped card looks quite good as an easel card and I think the nesties I have used fit in really well with the shape of the card.

The third project I have chosen is a wall hanging that I made for a craft meet in Newcastle. I loved making this, it took ages, but was a lot of fun. It has a load of different bits n bobs added and involved quite a bit of distressing.

As for my style I don't know if I have a set style. I love cute kid images and classic styles, but also like dabbling in altered art/distressing things etc, and would love the chance to create for a design team, as I have guest designed for a challenge blog before and would love the chance to be on a team permanently. I also love to try out new techniques and new craft products, and try to do something a wee bit different from the norm.

If you fancy trying out for the design team or fancy winning some candy pop on over to Craft -Room Challenge. You have until the 22nd May.

Happy Crafting
