Try Something New TIOT challenge.
This was certainly something new for me but it may not seem so at first glance. I used a Gelli plate for the first time, I used various stencils to create the pattern. I don't think the Gelli plate is for me, might try the same thing with a large block or glass board. I used a free stamp set from quick cards and some gems. I also tried Brusho's out at the same session but that's for another post.
Looking forward to seeing your entries, don't forget you can see the other DT projects here and check on our entry rules.

Show us some flowers
This is my card for this weeks challenge, the challenge has been to create the post, I wish blogger would update to accept the newer software that is around.
I cannot claim any credit for the design of this card, I took a class with the lovely Janet last week and this is one of the cards we made, it is mostly stampin up products from the 2015 catalogue, but the words are from the free stamp set from last months quick cards.
For the rules of the challenge and to see my team mates great projects go to the TIOT blog here.
Look forward to seeing your entries.

TIOT challenge my DT offering.
I found myself away kitty sitting again and with very few crafting supplies, I thought I had photographed my project for the challenge but no such luck, so I have tried my best LOL.
The flowers remind me of some beautiful orange flowers my grandmother had in her garden, I cannot remember the name of them, but they were always stunning.
I used a foam stamp, four ink pad, a water brush, a little patterned paper and a small card.
The picture is not great, I had edited it on my phone but it still bought up the original picture I took.
You will find all my great team projects and full details of the challenge here.

TEA CUPS challenge on TIOT
I have been absent for a week or two, due to kitty sitting and mixing up my challenges, oh dear it's a good job my DT team are patient with me.
I really enjoyed making this card, paper piecing one of my favourite techniques. The stamp is one of the new gorguss girls, I really like these, the papers are old ones from my stash and the ribbon is stampin up.
Sorry about the shadow, the picture was taken outside in the only sunshine of day, which was late evening, the weather is not good up here in the north.
I look forward to seeing your projects, lots of inspiration from my team mates here on the TIOT blog

TIC TAC TOE DT project for Tiot.
Maybe I should say this my first attempt at one of these I think, make sure you check my team mates brilliant projects here , there is also the tac tac toe board there as well.
Here is my attempt, a little tongue in cheek, as I created a tic tac toe layout. I used the punches, bling and cardboard row, I actually think I got a little confused, so be sure to check the row you choose carefully.

Add a photo ( Vintage or Modern ) TIOT challenge DT project.
Hope everyone has had, a good weekend, mine was busy Saturday trying to catch up and finding a missing die (instead of sock gremlins in this house we have die gremlins !!! ). Today we were at church saying goodbye to the vicar and his wife.
I had planned to use a Tim Holtz die and some vintage photos but of course could not find them, my excuse is we are very topsy turvy at the minute finding new homes for our crafting goodies, so they are all over the house until they find a new home within the house.
The rubric and my fellow DT's projects can be found here .
I had said to her about my problem and she said do a project life page and proceed to bring all her stuff and there's a lot to my work table. To say I was overwhelmed is a understatement, this is what I came up with, the pictures and words relate to one of my daughters training days for The Tour De France last year.
I used a Heidi Swapp stamp set I have just got from the states to say I am unimpressed with the quality would be a true statement, so please excuse the poor stamping.
Thank you for looking, I look forward to seeing your projects.

Spooky is the challenge on TIOT this week.
This is my offering for this challenge, it's just a simple folded card, I used this image a few years ago to make invitations for charity Halloween party, it was well over a hundred invitations that time. I had to compete with a lack of electrics so it was interesting making the card in those conditions.
Please look at my team mates wonderful projects on our blog and the challenge details, I look forward to seeing your entries.
Have a good week.

This project was a craft work cards kit that was sitting in a box from a quite a while ago so I made it up think I will hang in the craft room.
Craft work cards have brought out several other versions of this, so if you wanted to make one, you should find them on their website.

Colours of Summer : TIOT challenge
This challenge made me think a little and I was not sure where to go with it. I recently got some mini pads from craftwork cards and the papers in this pad made me think of those colours from my childhood on early morning walks when we were on holiday in the south. They are soft hues the sun throws out as it rises in the morning.
The photo does no really do the paper justice, and you cannot see the shimmer I got from using a iridescent pen.
Please be sure to check out my team mates great projects here and details of the challenge.
Have a great week.
