WOYWW and a card made for a few challenges!

Afternoon blogging buddies!

Hope you are all having a nice day, I've been busy this morning walking the dog, gardening, washing blah, blah, blah ..... and now its "me" time to have a look around blogland at all your wonderful creations and to enter a couple of challenges too!

So its Wednesday today and thought I would join in the fun over at WOYWW as I haven't been there for a visit myself in quite some time.........  So what is on my desk today........

Well I was at a craft club I go to last night, and we started a project  (I say started as I didn't get it finished - probably all the crafty chat!!) and its the most beautiful project I've seen for a long time.  Apparently it was featured in the August issue of Craft Stamper Mag so some of you may be familiar of what the finished item should actually look like!!  If not you've gotta use lots of imagination here - LOL

I wasn't joking about the imagination was I!!!   Its a "book card" and take my word for it our tutor Lynne's creations were truly amazing!  Once I've completed mine - I promise to post it up!  Whilst at the class I die cut various Timmietastic flourishes and the tattered flower which I'm planning on incorporating into my book card!  You can just see in this last photo a picture of a "vintage" lady I'm hoping to fit her into my design too as she is so gorgeous!

Right so on to a card now that I've made to enter into a few challenges!  I was lucky enough to win a prize at http://pennyblackatallsorts.blogspot.com/ July challenge last month!  I was sent this gorgeous rubber stamp and so I've inked it up and here is the card I came up with!  I thought it would be "rude not to" add it into their August challenge which has the theme: Free and Easy!

and the other challenges I would like to enter with this card into are:-
http://flutterbywednesdays.blogspot.com/ - Challenge # 167 (Wed)
http://tuesdaytaggers.blogspot.com/ - Anything goes (Tues)
http://tuesdaythrowdown.blogspot.com/ - Challenge # 62 - Non stamped sentiment (Tues) (mine is a pre-printed sentiment)

Right thats it for me for postings today, off to have a nosey around your blogs!!  Thanks for popping by my little blog and until next time...

Happy Crafting

I don't understand why chatting slows us all down - after all, we're all so good at it! Interesting that I definitely had the Aug magazine - but don't recognise this...I probably have even read it yet!

Violets Corner said...

Great use of your win Tina, the card is so cute.

Oh, and I do recognise your project from Craft Stamper, it looks like a great start on the tricky part.

Many thanks for playing with us at Penny Black at Allsorts.

Love what is on your desk. I am sure I wouldn't have got that far if I had gone on Tuesday. Lol!!! It looks complicated. I adore your hedgehog card. The stamp I showed you on Sunday at Stevenage I thought looked familiar - you have guessed it yes it was the one I won. Lol!!!!

Congratulations on your winning the Penny Black stamp. I love the scene you have made and you can almost see the little hedgie out of puff chasing the butterflies. Your whole card tells a story of summer and finished off beautifully with the frilly ribbon.
A great layout too.
Thank you for joining us once again at Penny Black at Allsorts and we look forward to seeing you next month.
