Okay ladies.... I just went with what inspired me yesterday as I sat at my scrapping desk. I hope these inspire you somewhat:

Challenge one - colour:
Use yellow, white and neutral (thinking either brown or grey)

I went on a bit of a stencil / mask buying spree yesterday at the shop... this is part of a 12 x 12 with some delightful grunge shapes.

Challenge two - technique:
Use a stencil or mask (see above comment about recent shopping spree)

This one was a set of Heidi Swapp Masks - meant, I think, for the Day in the Life type albums... but working well for cards Smile

Challenge three - stash busting:
With the die cut swap on at the moment I thought you might all have some die cuts lying around, or you will soon.

These gorgeous butterflies are from the collections pack in the gorgeous new Kaiser range Lorraine has in... and there were a few premade packs I spied (one of those fell into my basket too)

Challenge four: YIR
Often in the YIR I use a lot of smaller photos. For this challenge I would like the focus to be on one photo. You may have more than one on the page but one needs to stand out.

Yes.. I am getting a tad behind on my YIR... must get onto this today as well.

Challenge 5: Card challenge
Use something transparent on your card

My transparent "thing" is the sticker along the bottom. Oh, and look, another Heidi mask Wink How did that get there?

Challenge 6: Christmas Card
Use some washi tape

Laughing Sue-Maree! I have several masks/stencils I should use too. Now I have no excuse...

Super challenges, Sue-Maree. And what a great girl you are to remember how much I love stencils. And die-cuts. Very Happy

Hahaha Kathy... maybe I was inspired because they were still out from when you were here! No... there has been a retreat since then so that can't be it. It feels about that long since I have had much time at my desk though. My June CC samples are lying on there now, well, one is anyway. I hope to get that finished today Very Happy Very Happy

I'm at my computer to print off my photos for my YIR. Providing the phone doesn't ring (with a call to teach), I plan on getting my teeth into that this morning. Very Happy

I was having trouble loading until I did them individually, but there are now 2 cards in the gallery although they are both for ch 2 since I had decided to try out a couple of different techniques.
