Another fab response to our last challenge, a big thank you to all those who took part.  Your Easter creations were eggs cellent ! 

We would also like to send a huge thank you to Marlou for being our Guest Designer. 

The winner of our little giveaway for our Easter Challenge is No.2, Donna as chosen by Random Org Number Generator.  Congratulations Donna!  Please email Mandy your address and we'll get them in the post to you.

For our latest challenge, we'd like you to think's time to think about all the big guys or little guys in our lives.


Imade this card for my son's teenage friend who is having a birthday this weekend.  He wants to be a farmer when he leaves school, so I thought this card would be appropriate.  To make the background I used my computer to make a picture watermark.   I printed a farm image for the centre.  I used little tractor brads along with ribbon and buttons.


For my project I used very yummy Portobello Road Lost and Found papers, stamps and layered stickers from My Minds Eye.

Stars were cut using Stampin Up's star punch and the buttons are from a friend's loft clearout!

I didn't want to waste any of this delicious paper so used scraps from making the card to make a matching tag!  

We look forward to seeing your wonderful creations, below is a picture of our little gift for one lucky person who takes part in this challenge. A mixture of East of India and Stampin Up ribbons, together with strands of pearl beads.

Our Mad About the Boy challenge will run until midnight, Tuesday 26th April New Zealand time.  Please leave a link to your design using Mr Linky or email us with a photo attached.
