WELCOME

This blog was thought up by a group of friends who met on another challenge blog that closed. We missed the challenges there and decided that it would be nice to challenge each other by collecting ideas and putting them all into a hat to draw one out each week as a challenge. Now Closed as a challenge blog but here for inspiration for now

A big Hello to Carol who Janet has chosen to be our second guest designer. It will be lovely to get to know her work and a big thank you to Janet for organising this venture for us.
This is what Carol wrote about herself :-


My name is Carol and I've been crafting for most of my life.  Over the years I have experimented with all kinds of crafting, at the moment mixed media and altered art are my favoured passions, along with a mix of art journalling.  I still enjoy making special cards for special people and these can often take as long as a mixed media piece.  I am very fortunate that on my "crafting journey" I have been a member of several DT's all of which have helped me grow and expand my crafting knowledge.  I'm currently on two design teams, one of which, Tando Creative, is sponsoring this months Challenges.  I would like to say a big Thank You to Janet, Chrissie and Sandra for inviting me to join Out of the Hat for the month of April and I am looking forward to working with them and seeing all the lovely entries this month. 




The prize from Tando Creative  for this month.
