Need Inspiration?

The girls at It's A Creative World are so thrilled by the number of entries into our 'Scrap your Boobs' challenge and all the donations to our Just Giving Page. It's not too late to contribute to either, you have until the end of October.
Cardmaking but lacking in inspiration?
Sometimes we all need a push in the right direction and challenge blogs might be just the thing to get you motivated and raring to go. I checked out 3 blogs this week and had a fab time joining in the challenges.
The current challenge is a sketch to base your card on.
I've had a new set of mini Cuttlebug embossing folders sitting on my desk for three weeks whilst I work out what to do with them and as soon as I saw this sketch I new exactly how to use them! I used some shiny silver mirror card that I've had for a few years and never use and the embossing folders worked a treat.


I love the sketches you get from CPS as they are so adaptable.

I changed the sketch slightly by increasing the size of my card but basically kept everything else in.

Sketch This (cards):

The challenge was another sketch, really simple and multi-use, it could be used for every possible occasion that you can think of.

I had loads of fun punching circles and then inking and gluing and managed to squeeze four different patterned papers from Craftwork Cards and chipboard letters from Scenic Route onto my card.

So, I challenge you to pick a challenge blog and join in with the fun and of course link us to your creations so we can see what you've all been up to :)

Happy Crafting love Andrea xx
