The Big Challenge on Carolyn's

Firstly, although I know this is a blog to share my crafty outlook, I just wish to say that I was so glad to be well enough to go out to church this morning. Since coming back home, my back is really playing up and I'm waiting for the second lot of painkillers for the day to kick in, but, hey, I managed to get to worship with my church family.

Thanks (mainly) to Sue, yesterday the Big Challenge started - a week of crafting challenges. Whilst the FA cup, followed by rugby, was on, I ploughed my way through some of the challenges.

Challenge 1: Make a card incorporating a buckle:

Challenge 3: Make 3 men's cards:

Challenge 4: Make something to hang, incorporating a word or phrase (my photography is not good!):

Challenge 5: Make a card using the same stamp or embellishment at least three times:

Challenges 2 and 6 are yet to come - involving a mini album. I tried to start one using a kit I bought with some others a while ago and the rub ons wouldn't rub on (!) so I ruined the front of the book. One made by me is on its way ...

Earlier this afternoon I did:

Challenge 7: Make a card for no reason (i.e. not for birthday etc):

Challenge 8: Make a LO according to the given template:
