Hi all, time for some new challenges for you:

1. MAY - use Masking as a technique, Alphas as an accent and Yellow as a colour.

2. We all know it is Mother's Day in May.... I want you to be inspired by an important woman in your life for this challenge... you might use a photo or you might use her favourite colours or something that reminds you of her.

3. This year seems to be going by so quickly but, conversely, some of the days seem to be the same old thing over and over again (for me, mostly, dealing with homework and making dinner, ironing uniforms, making lunches etc). I want you to use something new on your creation but also include repetition in some form.

4. I have started a crocheting a new rug which is great for the colder evenings. I would like you to be inspired by the colours I am using (all of it beautiful wool from Chookscraps). The colours are pink, blue / aqua, grey and white...

5. Christmas card.... how are you going? Is it time to make some Christmas cards yet? I just did a quick count and I have 40 done. I am finding that doing "mass produced" cards in sets of 5 is a great way to get lots made without getting too bored with any one card design. I would like you to do a card set (it doesn't need to be 5) with a distinctive Christmas flavour.

6. Year In Review... Have people embarked on these again? I am working through March so am a little behind but am loving how the album is taking shape. Your challenge for this is to incorporate some stamping on your YIR or on a page with a photo from this year if you are not doing YIR.

I've just finished my YIR pages for April and have managed to incorporate a few of the challenges, should I not get them done in other forms later. These are such great challenges to use for all sorts of creations. Very Happy
