Pop on over to facebook ladies otherwise I have taken a snap shot here of Sue-Maree's lovely creations!

Colour challenge: It is a new year with a clean slate. Use neutral colours. This design was inspired by mycraftroomcreations.


Stash busting challenge: I seem to use less and less pp these days. For this challenge use at least 5 different papers or cardstock.



Technique: Just add water. I used distress ink and flicked water over it but you may want to use watercolour paints, pencils, or gelatos. I was inspired by a stampinallnight design for this one.



Project challenge: dig into your scrap drawer to find some things to turn into embellishments. I used lots of shapes that you find at the back of 6 x 6 paper pads. I am not sure if these will make it onto a LO or a card but I guess we will see.



Christmas card challenge: I know we have just had Christmas but it isn't too early to get ahead for 2016. Use ribbon on your card.



Happy Scrapping Chookies!

Had an issue with a hacker on the blog. The thing with the forum is that it is not very user friendly for mobile devices like phones and ipads which is what a lot of people use now.
