"NEW BLOG GIVEAWAY" Are you up to the task???????????

Ok onto the next challenge.

No rest for the wicked.

If you would like to go in the random draw for another giveaway - then this is what you need to do

Create a NEW card - for my challenge only!!!!!!!

I would like you to create a card with 3 HANDMADE FLOWERS using a recycled product.

There are a lot of different ideas going around at the moment to create handmade flowers from old sewing patterns, fabric etc.

So I need you to

* firstly create the flowers from recycled products (it would be great if you could take some
progress photos of your flowers - I would love to see how you've made them)
* secondly to add a handmade centre to your flowers - maybe an old brooch, vintage button,
bottle cap, self covered button etc
* thirdly - create a card using your handmade flowers

That's it - you can make as many cards as you like - each card will be an entry into the draw.

I will leave this open til 17th May - I HAVE DECIDED TO EXTEND THE CHALLENGE TIL THE END OF THE MONTH - 31ST MAY SO IF YOU WOULD STILL LIKE TO JOIN IN YOU ARE MOST WELCOME. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE JOINED IN SO FAR.

Goodluck - you're time starts now!!!!

Just pop back to this post when you have completed your card and I shall include a photo of your creation.

(Photo of goodies to be added soon)

Thanks for joining in.

Vicky, I was blown away when I checked out your blog and had a little tear when I saw the effort you went to to create your fantastic card/flowers.

Great job and thanks for joining in.

Vicky said...

Oh chucks, I didn't mean to make you sad LOL. Thanks for the challenge, I really enjoyed doing the tut, though writing it up & photographing took way longer than actually making the flowers & card :) & I love what the other ladies have come up with so far, great inspiration!!!
