Craft Your Days Away Challenge #7

Thank you so much to everyone who entered our recipie challenge at Craft Your Days Away.  We always enjoy looking at your creations.  Pop over to the blog to see if you were one of last week's winners.

DT member Mel has set our new challenge, which is:

All White Card - with a coloured image only

This fortnight we are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.  They are offering one lucky winner $10 to spend in their on-line store. 


Don't forget that if you'd like a chance of joining us as Guest Designer for a challenge put GD after your name on your entry.  Mel will be picking the Top 3 for this challenge too so we are all eager to see what you create for this challenge.  Remember, we are a multi craft challenge blog so it doesn't necessarily have to be a card that you make.

 I must admit that this one was a bit of a challenge for me because I love using colour and lots of it - well, it is called a challenge isn't it!  Actually, I really enjoyed making this card and it makes a nice change to the norm.  I had a look through my box of old Christmas rubber stamps and found one that I have had for years, but don't think I've ever used it before.

Here's what I've used:
Snowman Image - stamp by Rubber Stampede, coloured with pro markers
Coated glitter card - DCWV
Circular Stamp - Cat's Life Press
Cuttlebug embossing folders - Snowflakes and Polka Dots
Snowflake - Sizzlits die
Glitter, dew drops, ribbon, slider - from stash

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Crafty Pad - Christmas
I did it creations - Surprise me
Papertake weekly - Sparkly and Bright
Fab n Funky - Clean and Simple
Creative Cottage - Embossing
Crafty Purple Frog - Anything goes

Thanks for looking and please pop back soon!
