CYDA Challenge #19 & DT Call

Good Morning Everyone.

I'm hoping my post has posted as scheduled as we should be on a weeks holiday fishing down in Tewkesbury, looking forward to a nice relaxing week.

It's time for a new challenge over at Craft Your Days Away and we are also excited to be running it with a DT Call!!  Check out the challenge blog for the details on how to apply.

The new challenge theme has been set by Mel.....


You can either combine the two in your project or just focus on music or dance individually.

The DT have worked hard on this one to help inspire you and some of us have used images kindly provided by our sponsor Little Musings.

Here's my DT piece...
I have combined two of SJ's images from Little Musings coloured with Promarkers.

We do hope you'll be able to join us for our latest challenge and maybe even apply for a DT position!!

Enjoy your weekend.

Pollycraft Challenge #88 & CYDA Challenge #18

Good Morning from a gorgeous sunny Yorkshire!!!

Announcing two challenges today with the Pollycraft one being quite late I'm afraid as I've been without my lappy for a week due to a broken power lead, got a new one that didn't work so had to wait for another one which arrived yesterday, so I'm all back up and running again.  With not having the means to print out the images that I wanted I have just the one card to show you for both challenges, which luckily have the same challenge

So the challenges this week for you over at Pollycraft Monday Challenges & Craft Your Days Away is.....

 And here's my card....


Tried something a bit different with my papers.  The image is Pollycrafts 'Spring Things - Bumble Bunny'.

This weeks sponsor at Pollycrafts is Secret Crafter with 3 digi's for the winner.

And our sponsor for new challenge over at Craft Your Days Away is Meljen Designs with 4 digi's for the winner.

Well what to do with this gorgeous day? some window cleaning needs doing so gonna crack on with that sometime and there's always a bit of shopping that needs doing.

Hope you all enjoy your weekend, whatever your plans!!!

Pollycraft Challenge #87 ~ Old/Neglected Stamp/Image

Well Mr Blogger was not playing the game today with scheduling my post, so many apologies for this late post for the new challenge over at Pollycraft Monday Challenges 

The challenge has been set this week by Kylie......


So it's time to dust off one of those stamps you've not used for a while or search through your stash of digi images on you PC, who knows what you might find, maybe something you'd even forgot you had.

The DT have had a good old shuffle through their stamps and digi's and come up with some gorgeuos creation, so be sure to check them out.  Here's mine....
I've dusted off one of my old time favourite Sherbert Kisses stamps, I just love these and I always have the urge to give these girlies funky coloured

Paula is your sponsor this week and one lucky winner will recieve the full set of the brand new released today Swings & Slides Set 2

We hope you can join us for this week's challenge.
