And now for something completely different....

She said in true Monty Python style :)

We were thinking of all you lovely cardmakers out there and decided to give you a challenge too.
Hopefully this is the first of many, some with a lovely prize, others just for fun.

To start us of we have a challenge from Quixotic Paperie who sell the most delectable stamps from Kraftin Kimmie, Stamping Bella & Victoria Case for SACD to name just a few. Pop over to her shop to see the wide range available.

"Be Charming" - incorporate charms into your card design, either as a focal point or to accent your design.

This is Elaine's example:

Here are the DT entries:

The challenge will run until the 15th May when Elaine will choose a winner.
Remember you must be a follower to be in with a chance to win.

Check back in a few days when we announce the fantastic prize for this.
Prize available to UK residents only.

Please join in the fun and create a card using these examples for inspiration. We hope you will let us share your finished project on this blog.

    would be interested where you all buy your flowers from i did get referrred to somewhere on craft swap forum where they did tins of prima flowers for £16 but they never seemed to have them after i bought one.
    and ive never seen them anywhere else.
