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.

August Challenge!

July was another amazing month for card entries and we can't wait to see more!
Hope you have some time to play this month!

August Challenge
There is a list below of products that can be used for your cards. You need to use 4 of them on your card - your choice! For example, my card might used a stamped sentiment (Stamping), Striped paper (Stripes), Inking and ribbon. It may also have some glitter and brads and that's fine too! Extras are alright!

If you do more than one card, you can use different products!

Chipboard
Hand stitching
Ribbon
Inking
Stamping
Textured paper (embossed is good!)
Metal embellishments
Alphabet stickers or rub-ons for the sentiment
Stripes

Here's some inspiration from the design team...
