Words - Craftymessers Challenge - 11 August 2012

Hi all and welcome to my crafty blog.

Today I am blogging my DT card for the Craftymessers Challenge Blog newest challenge starting today Saturday 11th. The theme chosen by teamie Judie is simply'WORDS'.

We were to create a DT project reflecting only words as the main feature of the piece and this is my contribution.  I do like this stamp from the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous range and I think the sentiment speaks to all of us crafters.

Our Sponsor for our challenge this time is....Crimson Cloud they are offering our winner 3 pkts of Die Cuts of your choice.
" is owned by Linda and Melanie, and is a mother/daughter venture - a way to indulge their joint passion of cardmaking and papercrafting.  
Linda, based in South Africa, is the designer - developing their exclusive range of stamps, die cuts, digital stamps, svg cutting files and card kits which reflect their styles of card making.
Melanie is based in Brighton, Sussex and runs the web based shop - only selling products that they have tried, tested and love using. New products are regularly being tested and added to the range.
