Crafts Galore Encore Challenge blog - Challenge #69 - Anything Goes and Design Team Call

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

Thank you for all the well wishes for my hubby. He is much better now and back at work there is just a bit of a lingering cough. This weekend we are having friends here for a meal on Saturday. After we are all going to our local theatre to see Hal Cruttenden. They do get some good comedians at our little theatre. On Sunday it will be church and we are picking up details of the hamper that our little group will be putting together for one of the families being supported through CAP.

Being the first of the month it is usually busy in blogland. For me there will be two posts today. This is the day that  a couple of design teams I am on have coincided. Next year this will be happening more often more about that later on.

Challenge #69 starts today at the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge blog the theme is Anything Goes. This time the sponsor is Beccy's Place.

I have not one but two cards on offer. I covered the backing paper in this card with washi tape. 

Beccy has many wonderful images and sets in her store. If you click on the logo you will be taken there. 

This image is from the Sing Joy digital stamp set which is available HERE. . I did use a pre-coloured image so that I could place onto a background I had created on the computer. Aren't those flip-flops just fab. That is just what they will be wearing in Australia around Christmas time. 

This is a Tattered Lace die and in fact the first one I ever bought. It was just right for this image. 

One last look at this card and then onto the next. 

To create the ivy background for this card I used Sam's Star die set from the John Next Door range. 

This cute little is from the Christmas Cardinals digi stamp set which is available HERE.  Again I used a pre-coloured image and made my own background on the computer. I do love his cute little boots. 

The snowflakes were made with Happy Snowflakes dies set from the John Next Door range. 

So there you have both of my cards both with images from Beccy's Place. This month she has a Christmas card challenge on her blog. She is very generous with prizes it is worth entering. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Have a great weekend. 

Happy Crafting
