Challenges

Hello Everyone who drops in and thank you for calling. First rain for a while here and it all seems much fresher which is great for the plants in the garden which were looking quite sad with all the cold winds blowing them about.

A reminder that you still have almost a week to join in at Try it on Tuesday where the theme is Spots, Dots and Slashes so lots of scope with that one. Hope you will join in and if you are chosen as one of our top 5 you have the chance to be a guest designer in the future.

I seem to have landed on a couple of nautical themes with the two challenges I am joining today.

At Make My Monday they have Let's Sail Away as their theme

I have made a card and gift tag for  someone over 80 who is restoring a model galleon. Most digitally designed then printed out and arranged on a card.

At Moo Mania and More their new theme is Water


Digital collage from me using a photograph, taken by me in Whitby, as the background.


Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

Fabulous card, Chrissie, my Bill loves the water and sails so had a chuckle when I saw the card, he is not near that age for a long time... Great digi page too. I was surprised to read from you the Vic's dad was also in the Polish army, WW11. Guess he too was in prison camp in Germany....xx.xx  {aNNie}
