Cool Dad card........

Hi Peeps - half way through the month already! Time for some more inspiration. How about a photo taken on Bruny Island by me last week when four wheel driving and adventuring? So much fun!

Apparently it is a sink hole. The pines were planted after WW1 by returned soldiers - who knew there were pine plantations on this island???? We were on our way to somewhere else and just lucked into this little grove.

Did you mean inspiration about the current challenge? Oh......well, here you are then.

Penguins and chooks.

What are you going to make?

Only three entries so far and this is the random number prize......

#69: To the men in our lives..... 
TWIST add an animal or bird.....

Winners Post for May and a new challenge.....

Winter is upon us and the day's draw in early but we have DARK MOFO to keep our spirits high!


Welcome to the Winner's post for May - we had so many lovely entries last month and I was glad the prize is a random number one as choosing one would have been too difficult!

Random Number Draw:
7: Juleen! 

 Congratulations Juleen

Our DT Favorite for May was

25: SweetPea

Such a different take on borders and edges!
Congratulations also to SweetPea!

Now, we have a new challenge running - what about entering this as well?

#69: To the men in our lives..... 
TWIST add an animal or bird.....

Mystery Prize.....an eclectic collection.....to date.....

To give you some more inspiration, the DT have gone above and beyond again
 - remember, you can make more than a card  (page, tag, gift, canvas....)


A money container to contain a gift for a younger man!

A technique I must try.....looks great and so CAS

All those little swirls of paper....too cute!

Is that enough inspiration for now?
Come back next week to see what we might have and get that thinking cap on and working

June Challenge #69: To the Men in Our Lives........

Well, we are entering the month that heralds the half-way mark through 2017!
Pressure, pressure......

Here, in Hobart, we are approaching mid-winter fast. 
The nights are drawing in and it is nearly dark by 5.00 pm 
Thank goodness for Dark MoFo and other winter festivities to get us all out and about or we would be snuggling down in front of the TV and heater and not emerging until Spring!

A photo taken late in the afternoon last week by Greg Faull of our beautiful Cathedral Close in Hobart (Anglican)

June is also a new month and a new month means a new challenge.....
Whether they are our fathers, brothers, sons, partners, uncles, friends  or employers......our challenge this month is to make something crafty for them!

#69: To the men in our lives..... 

TWIST add an animal

The Prize will be .....
a mystery collection of new crafting bits 
As it is a mystery - there is no photograph of it!
There might be teasers during the month......

As usual the Design Team are providing you with some amazing inspiration! There are three cards today but I want to remind you that you do not have to make a card - it can be a card, a scrap page, a tag or a gift......anything you make in paper for a male without using stamps to create it!

We will look forward to seeing what you an create over the month!
