Allsorts Challenge ~ 'No Stamping' and a DT Call

Good Morning

It's Amanda's turn to set the challenge at Allsorts this week and she has chosen 'No Stamping'. That means no rubber stamped images or sentiments. Digi stamps are allowed. Amanda has also suggested a few different techniques you could use ~ parchment, iris folding, tea bag folding, decoupage to name a few.

It the days before I was into rubber stamps my favourite technique was decoupage so that's what I have chosen for this week's challenge.

I have made this card for my mum as she is going to a wedding this afternoon. She hasn't seen it yet. I am taking it to her this morning so hope she likes it.

I would also like to let you know about a brand new monthly challenge blog Crafty Calendar Challenge which is launching on 2nd October. There is a Design Team call at the moment which runs until 15th Sept.

I hope you are all looking forward to the Bank Holiday weekend.
