Not Just Cards Challenge Blog - July Challenge - Anything Goes

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

I hope you are all well and doing okay. We had a lovely day out yesterday. We went to Furzey Gardens on the edge of the the New Forest in Hampshire. We met our friends there and we shared a lovely picnic together as well as getting coffee  in the cafe. It was so lovely to be out and to see some gorgeous plants. I was even able to buy a couple of plants for our garden. This year our garden has become very important to us like it has to many people. 

Back to business the July challenge has started at the Not Just Cards Challenge Blog. The theme is the ever popular Anything Goes. 

I have a friend who loves Star Trek (so do I). For her birthday I asked my daughter to draw my friend and her husband as characters from the Next Generation series of Star Trek. My daughter obliged. She has been drawing us as Star Trek characters for years. The moon in the background is my own photograph.  The stars I added were made with a die from the Champagne Bottle die set from the John Next Door range. 
Our challenges are always fun. Click on the logo and you will be taken to the blog. 

When my friend saw the image she was just so thrilled. I have asked my daughter to draw me some Doctor Who themed images. I know people like seeing themselves as their favourite characters. 

There is a little story with the matching gift bag. My friend, saw a gift bag I made on Facebook and challenged me to make a Star Trek themed one. That's how it all started. 

Have a great weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

I stumbled upon your card and am so glad that I did. It is amazing... and so is your daughter! If she hasn't already started... she could make a nice business on special orders. I can't imagine how exciting it would be to receive such a card. TFS Kathy A from
