Good Morning Everyone, welcome to my new followers delighted to have you here, I am  so excited to be launching a new challenge for you all, 

The idea behind this challenge blog is to give you a place to show off the things you might not otherwise blog, so we want to see you 3d projects, your home decor ideas and your cards if you prefer just to make cards. 

Cutting Cafe
Prize shop voucher

Ditzie Crafts
Prize 3 Images

All Dressed Up
Prize 2 images

For our first challenge which lasts a month so you have plenty of time I made a suitcase from the fabulous Cutting Cafe. 
 I used the file on my Craft Robo, I tweaked the size and added two straps instead of just one but thats the fabulous thing about it being a cutting file I can make it any size I need.
 The papers are from an old Brenda Pinnick pad I got a long long time ago.  I covered the edges with some washi tape and used some tiny brads to hold my buckles on.

I filled it with some Cafe latte as it was a thank you for my friend and she likes a nice Cafe Latte. 

The amazing Betty Roberts gave Bre Latte away as a freebie on FaceBook a while ago, I was lucky enough to get her and she seemed the perfect image to go with this. As you can see I used some of the same papers to make the card. 

We are looking forward to seeing you makes and can't wait to come visiting.

Thank you for popping by and any comments you take the time to leave are greatly appreciated.

Hey there and thanks for the info I have undoubtedly picked up something new through here. I however came upon a few technical issues browsing this website. I have been thinking about if your internet hosting is alright? Not that I'm filing a complaint, but slow loading times might probably affect your ranking in Google and might harm your top quality articles here. Anyway I'm putting your RSS to my personal email and will look for much more of your interesting articles......Cccam Server
