'Y is for Yikes!' & 'Z is for Zoom!'
Yes...that's right, we have two themes for this challenge!
After seven trips through the alphabet, we're changing things up in 2017, and are breaking you all in gently with a practice run for the last challenge this year. We will still be using the alphabet as the inspiration for our challenges, but will be switching to a monthly challenge, so each month will have more than one theme. You can use either or all of the themes..make a project for both or combine them in one...the choice is yours! Remember that we do not have a limit on the number of times you can enter each of our challenges, or the number of challenges you can combine with ours! Our challenges will start on the first Wednesday of each month, and will end on the last day of the month, so you'll have plenty of time to play along! We will also continue to have lots of fabulous prizes on offer...with multiple winners each month!
Our sponsor for this challenge is East Wind:
Prize - 3 Digital Images!
I went with the 'Z is for Zoom' theme and as my stash of Christmas cards is looking quite healthy, I made a set of decorative fridge magnets using images of Penny Black critters zooming around! The magnets are from Ikea...they're meant for putting photos in, but I simply cut some white card to the correct size. I stamped the critters (Ice Dance Dog, Snowboard Ride & Deer in Skates) on to the card, coloured them using watercolour pencils, then added a simple doodled border before sliding them into the plastic magents.
I'm also entering these magnets into the following challenges:
- Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
