Totally Papercrafts Challenge #25 & Pollycraft 'Flash Those Freebies'

Good Morning All!!

My I'm a tad late this morning with my post for our next challenge over at Totally Papercrafts.  It's been all go for me over the past couple of days. Over the past couple of months I've been doing numerous tests, a telephone interview and then a face to face interview for a job at HSBC, alot of waiting gaps inbetween all of these  My final interview was last Friday and finally late on Tuesday I got the job offer...woo-hoo!!  I'll have about a month to get myself organised before going back into full-time employment after a 4 year break.

Well thats my news now onto the TPC Challenge!!

Carol is your host this week and has a recipe for you...

(it can be either just 3 embellies or 3 types of embellies)

We are thrilled to this week be sponsored by Elizabeth over at Soft Pencil, and the winner will get a $10 voucher to spend in her image store.  Elizabeth also provided us DT with some gorgeous images to work with.  So please check out my fellow DT buddies wonderful work and here is mine...


Digi-Image - Soft Pencil 'Japanese Girl'

Papers - Dovecraft

Colouring Mediums - Watercolour Pencils blended with Sansodor & Promarkers for the skin tones

Sentiment - PC Generated

Embellishments - Ribbon and Flower from my stash.  Pearls & Ribbon Slider from Crafty Emma's Store


We do hope you will be able to jin us for our recipe challenge, we can't wait to see what you whisk up!!



It is Friday but there is no new freebie for you today, unless you do a little work!!  Paula through this week has been running a little challenge called 'Flash Those Freebies', you'll find full details over on the Tales from Pollycraft Blog, taking part means you will get a freebie image emailed to you for the next part of the fun, but there are some strict rules so please read them carefully.  It's been running since Monday, so if you've not popped over and seen it yet you still have a few days left to take part.


Just one more bit of news......

Some of you may have already seen on the Magical Crafts Challenge Blog that sadly it will be closing after the current challenge.  But don't worry, the MCFC DT and myself are working on a brand new fortnightly challenge blog to launch in August.  Please keep an eye out on the DT blogs next week for more info on the new challenge blog launch and there will be a chance to win some candy too.  So watch this space!!

OK, you can go, that's all my news for now.

Thanks for stopping by!!
