Brand new Challenge Blog -

Today sees the start of a brand new Challenge  over at:
run by Lexie.  Every fortnightly challenge will have 'Anything goes' as it's theme and we hope you will support Lexie.  She has also set up a shop at:
and as an incentive there is a 48hr sale with 10% off all sales from 9am today till 9am Tuesday.  To receive your discount, please use the following code at checkout:

I was so excited that Lexie asked me to join her Design Team, and hope that you will go and look at all the other DT projects too.

Here's what I came up with for our first challenge:

I started by stamping out the Vintage Floral Ring - SKU 0027, cut round the inside so that if formed an aperture, and then coloured it in using Promarkers.  The background is coloured with Panpastels.  I then stamped, coloured and cut out the Vintage Beauty 3 - SKU0023 image and placed it inside the aperture.  Again the background was coloured with Panpastels.  To finish the card off I used a couple of Fanciful Flourish die cuts from Cheery Lynn Designs, a sentiment from Inkylicious and gems from my stash.

We so look forward to seeing your creations and don't forget to hop over to the shop and have a look, and also go and look at the other Teamies creations.  Good luck with your entries to the challenge.
