Hope you're all sticking to your New Year's resolutions ... I didn't make any this year, so at least I can't break any. I didn't do too well with last year's "not to buy new craft stash and to use what I've got" because my craft stash has grown and my bank balance reduced!!!
I hope you've all found your crafting MOJO after the festive break because we've got a new and brilliant challenge over at Craft Your Days Away Challenge blog. The challenge for the next two weeks is a nice and easy one to start the new year off with:
Remember, we are a multi craft blog so it does not necessarily have to be a card. It could be a scrapbook page, a gift or anything else, as long as you've crafted it. Besides card making, I love to make small teddy bears and this is my first one of 2011 so it fits in perfectly with our Anything Goes. Surprise us and show us what you have crafted your days away making!
For this challenge we are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp who are offering a $10 voucher to be spent in their store. Pop over to the challenge blog for the full details or click the blinkie to visit the Simon Says Stamp store.
I have used a hand dyed short pile, purple mohair to make the bear, he has glass eyes and his nose has been stitched with DMC cotton perle thread and the ribbon is by Anitas (I think). Maybe 2011 is time for you to learn a new craft - I started making teddies a couple of years ago and, I might not be an expert, but it is a really enjoyble craft so long as you can sew basic stitches.
So, I can't wait to see what you make for our challenge and don't forget to have a look at the other DT blogs - they've come up with some great ideas for this challenge!
Thanks for stopping by,
