Some news to share!

Hi everyone - I have some wonderful news to share with you today.

Earlier in August, Corrinne of Pin and Tack Handcrafted Delights put out a Design team call.  I decided to apply and Corrinne was so kind as to offer me a place on her team.

Pin and Tacks Spark Your Creativity Challenge #1 starts today, 1st of  September.  This is to be a monthly challenge and this months theme is Anything Goes, literally you can make anything you want and share it.


Our sponsors this month is Pin and Tack Handcrafted Delights and the prize is a Micro Clothes Pin Banner kit that includes 5 clothes pins and a clothes line, delightfully wrapped.


And our very own DT member Naomi  of Creative Bug on the Loose is giving away a set of 4 digital stamps.


I welcome all my other Design team members and hope you will go along to Pin and Tack and take part in this months challenge - click here.

Here is my card for your inspiration.


I used a ribbon paper technique that I learnt from Pink Dalmatians and here is a link to her You Tube video tutorial

I used the Flower Shoppe cartridge, Scallop 1 cut at 3" for the flower. 

The Art Philosophy cart was used for the leaves (page 62, cut at 1") and the sentiment layer (page 35, cut at 3" wide).


The sentiment is an Inkadinkado stamp from Walmart.

A nice bit of ribbon from Michaels bargain bucket to finish it off.


So off you go to Pin and Tack and the first Anything Goes Monthly Challenge, you can create anything you like. Make sure you check out the other DT members and their fabulous projects.  And most importantly, have fun.

I am entering this card in the following challenges

Love to Create Challenge #30 - Hand made flowers on your card (closes 2 Sept)

Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes (closes 5 Sept)

The Perfect Sentiment Challenge PSC47 - Anything Goes with a sentiment (closes 4 Sept)

DL ART - Thankful Thursday 1000 Post Linky Party - Anything Goes (closes 30 Sept)

Just Keep On Creating Challenge #3 Anything Goes (closes 1 Oct)

Happy crafting.
