New Challenge over at Oldie But A Goodie

Hi All just thought I would let you know that we have a new challenge this fortnight over at OBAG and the theme is Filigree and this is what I came up with 

I used my die cut and made a hinged card and then just added layers, its a shame as you cannot see the colours of the butterfly properly here but I did it in a lovely bright yellow so obviously against the blue die cut frame it looks green on the photo.    Got to admit this challenge didn't go down well with me, I don't like the card and had to rack my brains to think of something I could make but Sarah's friend Liz loved it so much she bought it so it can't be that bad.

Why not pop along to OBAG and see what the rest of the team have designed and also enter into the challenge yourself.

I have a busy day ahead, going into Ivybridge to the bank, then on to KwikFit to get my tyres changed on the car and then going to B&Q to get some more paint as James the decorator is starting to paint the living room tomorrow and as I will have to stay home and make cups of tea for him I will catch up all day on the blogging I have missed out on over the last couple of days.

My craft fair went well, there was a festival on at Exmouth on Sunday so lots of people about the other traders were a lovely bunch some of them I had met before, only made a small profit of around £50.00 but it was better than a loss.  I only have two craft fairs booked in for June, but have booked to go to Exmouth in July, September, October, November and December and am also going to book into our local Garden Centre up until Christmas as well.  Could not book August as we have the Cornwood Show then and I need to be there although I will only be sitting in the Secretary's tent, giving people who come in leaflets and any information, also lost children, and anything else that crops up, I am hoping that Sarah's friend Liz will do my table for me on the day as Sarah is helping out with the pet and poultry show.  Anyway I best go now as I need to have my breakfast and get washed and dressed.

Love to all

  2. You and me both stumped by this challenge Alison - I was just pleased I had my corner die! Love your butterfly though, it does look a pretty card and I'm sure the camera doesn't do the colours justice - I hate when that happens. Glad the sale made a profit for you again - a lot of work tho, Jx
