A play day and new Challenge Blog

After yesterday disastrous attempt, to attend  the mini extravaganza at the Craft Barn ( seven hours stuck on the M25 ) I 've had a play. I wanted to see is you could make an aperture in corrugated card and it worked out really well, I cut the surface with a knife and just peeled back the top layer of paper revealing the corrugations underneath, there was no plan it just sort of evolved lol
I'm entering this 4x4 to a new challenge blog for all those of you who love stamping called Fashionable Stamping and their first challenge is anything goes, please check it out there are some wonderful talented creation on show

Very clever idea - how come I never think of things like that - and a great result. M25 jam sounds horrendous.
