Sarah Hurley Challenge: Use more than two images

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here to show you a card I have made for Sarah Hurley's new challenge-use more than two images. I chose the penguins and snowflakes and made a spinning card using the Christmas Cheer CD available here.
I cut an aperture out of the paper and cardstock with my nesties, and used the inside of the circle paper inside of the card as a backdrop for the penguin. I added dental floss between the two penguins and pulled it tight so it would spin within the aperture. I then added ribbon and gems from my stash.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes
Ribbon Carousel: Anything Goes plus Spooled item (Ribbon)
The Paper Shelter: Christmas Fun
Paper Crafting Journey: Use a Digi
4 Crafty Chicks: Die cuts
Charisma Cardz: Cutesy Projects

An exciting new challenge for all my crafty friends!

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here to announce something new for my blog that I hope you will all get involved in! :-) I quite often make items which don't fit into a 'card or scrapbook' page category and often struggle to find places to show these in blogland. I thought I would remedy this by making a new two monthly 'Anything goes' challenge where we can all inspire each other with the different crafts we have been playing with! :-) So I mean jewellery, altered items, knitting, etc etc.

I will choose items to showcase on my blog throughout the challenge with a link to your blog to show the talent out there and hold a draw every couple of months of all the entries to win prizes-this first challenge will be sponsored by the wonderful Sarah Hurley-you can drool over all her lovely items at her etsy store here!
I encourage all of you to pop by each others blogs for some fabulous ideas, fun and mostly to meet other like minded crafters and hopeful…

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
