Next challenge


Well nobody joined in with me over the last two weeks did you!  It honestly wasn't that complicated but you know me (well the girls from the crop do!) I have to have a bit of complication in there to make it worthwhile - so your challenge this week - should you choose to accept it is:  Think about what you have done this past weekend and try and think of something that has five letters in it - such as my son went to a football MATCH, I spent a day at my CRAFT club, did you SCRAP, watch TELLY, go to a PARTY?  anything along those lines, then with each letter in your word use the following list to see what you need to use on your card, tag and/or layout:

A – Alphabet
B – Bird
C – Circle
D – Die cut
E – Embossing (either dry or heated)
F – Frame
G – Glitter
H – Heart
I – Ink
J – Journalling
K – TicKet
L – Leaves
M – Mask
N – Number
O – Orange (colour)
P – Punch
Q – Quote
R – Ribbon
S – Stickers
T – Travel
U – Umbrella
V – Verse
W – Wings
X – Xperiment with a new technique
Y – Yellow (colour)
Z – Car (showing my age here remembering Z Cars!)

So for my card my son went to a PARTY so I have to use a Punch, Alphabet, Ribbon, Travel and Yellow and here is my creation:
 
Bit simple but I managed to make this and another one like it (with the name Alex on it though!) both in an hour - such a relief I get stressed when I leave things to the last minute!
 
Will be back soon with my layout - I have done one but not photographed it and its too dark now (this is a scheduled post from Monday night) and I can't do it today as I am off on a jolly to Ikea and Primark - whooo hoooo!!
 
Hope some of you will join in with me this week :)  thanks for looking.
