New December Challenge at the CDAC

Today sees the start of our monthly challenges over at the 

each month a different team member will host a challenge for you

this month it is  TAMS - DROPLETS IN A RUSTY BUCKET 

Come on over and play along the Howdy Doody Stamp is FREE for the month of December only and you may even win for playing so come and see :) 

There is also a sketch to use
So here is what I came up with for my inspirational piece
I made a birthday gift box and matching card. I used some papers from K & Co called Blue Awning and altered a box.  I added some antique lace and some string for the cowboy feel.  I added the image to the top of the box.  I matched the card to the box following the sketch.  The string is general garden twine.

I am entering this into the following challenges
Anything Goes - Congratulations
Creative Card Crew - Treat Boxes
Scrap Creations - Anything Goes
Fab N Funky - Birthday
OSATT - Fall Colours

Hope you are all safe in this bad weather and keeping yourselves warm

thank you to my wonderful visitors who leave me such inspiring comments, love them all

finally some fabulous news


Polly, (Artfulwings),  I am sure that your scrapbook classes at Grimsby Crafts will be very busy and if you are local 
and interested in altered art classes Sue (Paperparadise) has also agreed to run classes at Grimsby Crafts.  If you are not familiar with either of these very talented ladies then do pop and see their blogs where you can see their fabulous work and maybe inspire you to attend one of their classes.

Isn't it lovely to have such a selection of wonderful craft stores and different classes in and around the area, with such a diversity of choices of talent we are so spoilt :)

Hugs Kate xx
