februarys challenge

Starting on the first of February, there will be a competition here! There will be prizes there will be lots of creating!
Here are the deets –
Every day I will be posting a new challenge as per normal on the blog. (No group emails will be sent sorry!)The challenges for Feb. will have no set theme (e.g. birthday cards, congrats etc) but will have a technique or product that must be used.
In order to qualify for a prize at the end of the month, you must email me your creations by midnight on Sundays (Qld time). You can still send them every day, but in case you can’t make it to the computer I have made it a bit easier for you!
When you send me your creations, could you save them with your name and the date it is for (e.g. tina24th) if that makes sense?! It helps me out a little with organizing myself! But that’s not all!!! It’s not that easy!
At the end of the month, whoever has sent in a card for every challenge will receive a little something in the mail... And to make it interesting...whoever has sent in the most cards will receive a little something extra!
So who’s up for the challenge?
If you want to join in, email me your name and home address so I can get prizes out ASAP. Feel free to spread the word, the more the merrier :)

luv c

january 18th

please pretend you got this post yesterday!

today's challenge is to create a boys card with something interactive on it.

this challenge for the 18Th was a little tricky for me, i wanted to do something i hadn't tried before, so i went to one of my fave blogs, got a tutorial from there and had a go! beates site has heaps of really cool tutorials for all kinds of cards...very cool :) if you want to check it out - you wont regret it!!

anyway...back to the challenge - here's my card when it is closed it looks very simple (just a frog) but pull the tag..and taadaa!!! i love it!

it took me awhile to get it right because i lost my ruler with inches on it so i had to convert all measurements as i went along (the tutorials are American, so everything is in inches) but i got there in the end..

have fun
