COMMENTING...

If you see that you are not getting comments from us, it is because of the silly "PROVE THAT YOU ARE NOT A ROBOT" on Blogger. There are only certain number of times you can comment and then you have to start proving you're not a robot. Really irritating when you have to click through picture after picture to try and leave a comment to our beautiful entries. So sorry about this. We wish Blogger would change this.

April Challenge

To get underway with our new Design Team, I challenged them to make a card using a Photograph or "Recycled" picture from a magazine or an old store bought Christmas card. NO STAMPED IMAGES were allowed :)

Here is an old 'store bought' card I recycled to make up my card for this months challenge




and my NEW card :)

and this is what we all came up with!

Ceal use a beautiful vintage image for her card.
Sandie used some pictures she had saved from magazines.

Diana Used a great winter photo for her card.
Samantha used some neat photos from a holiday gathering and a winter romp out in the snow.

Tenia recycled an old Christmas card.



Leave a comment if you do our challenge!
