new challenge over at Krafty Hands.

morning, well I'm a couple of hours late, sigh, its called having a 16yr old border Collie, who has come into season, and 2 (2yr old tomorrow) male rotties................................................yep........................

anyway a quick post as I need to get a move one here, got samples to make for the next Kraftyhands show, and going over to the Leigh fair tomorrow, and I want to take 1 sample with me, so I really need to move as this is my "statement piece" I want to finish, then the others wont take long. so to business:

on the first saturday of every month Kraftyhands run a challenge on their challenge blog. This month the challenge is Shades of Blue.
now you can enter using anyones products, but then you can only achieve a top 3 place, BUT if you use some Kraftyhands artwork, then you stand to be in with a chance of winning a voucher against some physical goodies in their online shop, they dont do digi's, so a tangible reward!
You may not realise who Kraftyhands are, but if you live in the UK and have attended any craft show within the last 5 yrs, chances are you have picked up something of theirs. Also they are now on Create and Craft, and the disks and paper kits are going down a storm!
So you probably have something you can use to enter to win the voucher, so why not have a go?
here's my entry:
This is from the Garden Steps CD, a cd full of , yes you guessed it, stepper cards with a garden theme!

Its a lovely little cd, very springlike!
So mine was printer onto white cardstock, I rarely use paper, then mounted onto some silver mirri to lift it, then onto a nice navy cardstock base. And made the stepper card from there. The butterfly, one of the embellishments  was cut out, glittered and glazed and mounted onto some acetate and stuck inside the top of the folded card base. Cut out the stepper decorations, glaze each of the flowers, and glitter the tiny butterflies, add the sentiment and a lovely card is done and dusted.
right Hi-ho hi-ho its off to work I go,

catch you later, xxx
