Challenge 9 has started on the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge blog. We want to see unusual shaped cards, no squares or rectangles allowed. All entries must be in by 8.30pm next Wednesday to be in with a chance to win the prize which is a lovely unmounted stamp from Just Tracys. New work only please. We are also looking for 2 new DT members, so if you're interested in applying, just put DT entry into your posting linking to this challenge. For my DT card, I've made a card in the shape of a cat. I'm not very happy with it though, I think it's the way the tag turned out with the metal magic. First time I've tried this technique so I can only get better! I've added a little bell round the neck as well, and wire for the whiskers. My nephew should be happy with it for his birthday, as he loves cats. Please visit the blog to see what everyone else in the DT have come up with, there's some really good inspiration.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
