Not Just Cards Challenge blog - July Challenge

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? I was very lucky and yesterday I had lunch out with a good  friend and today I am seeing another good  friend today. We are all into crafting so it is lovely to see them both. 

I was recently given the opportunity to rejoin the Not Just Cards Challenge blog Design Team. The challenges are always Anything Goes and they start on 11th of the month. This is nice because I can make just what I want. 

A little while back I made a Tri-Shutter card for a baby shower. I though it would be nice to make one of these cards as a proper baby congratulations card. 

I used the dimensions for this card that I had worked out to make my baby shower card. Since making that card I have invested in some more dies for baby cards. The really nice thing is that these cards  fold up small and fit into a reasonably sized envelope. 

The challenges are always Anything Goes. 

This shows what the card looks like from above. This type of card looks very cool on display. Although it takes a while to make all the mats and layers they are all squares and rectangles and therefore easy to cut. The really fun bit is working out the decorations. 

On of our nieces is expecting her first baby in October. Obviously I don't know if she is having a girl or a boy. So there might just be a girl version of this card that I will be sharing later on.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
The challenge starting 10th July at the TTCRD Challenge 
Challenge 149 at the Creative Fingers Challenge blog
Challenge 100 at the Dies R Us Challenge blog
Challenge 214 at the Crafting from the Heart Challenge blog

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
