Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog #9

Hi all today see's the start of a new challenge at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog and this week we would love to see you 'Celebrate Your Creativity'.  We would love you to try out something that is new to you or maybe something that you have avoided using like a different fold card or a stamping technique the list is endless.  I have made a Diamond fold card that I have only ever tried once before and was not as happy with it as I am with this one.  I have used yellow card, green Basic Grey papers some roses and Crafty Ann's Daffodil Image which I have punched out with circles.  I hope you like this but for more inspiration go see the other DT cards they are beautiful and very inspirational.

Just beautiful Lorraine, love the diamond fold - not tried that one. Makes you think that spring is around the corner - even though we've still got 6 - 8 inches of lying snow

I love this Lorraine, it promises me that spring is not too far away. I love what you've done with the circular punches too - the whole thing is just so effective so I'm glad that you're happy with this one.

This is lovely and a fab shape too. Love the spring feel, it's nice to see, especially in this horrible rainy weather we're having at the moment.
Happy crafting

Lorraine, what a lovely spring-like card. I've never really been successful with this type of card either but you've certainly mastered it.

Thank you for allowing me to be a Guest Designer this month. I have really enjoyed it – even if the second challenge well and truly took me out of my comfort zone. It’s been nice to see how everyone else interpreted the challenge and I’ve kept saying “why didn’t I think of that?”. Thanks for the opportunity.

Take care and my best wishes, Kym xxx
