TIME OUT Challenges #18

Are you ready to take some TIME OUT with me and do some crafting? I hope so because at TIME OUT Challenges we have a fabulous Christmas themed photo for you. Hopefully it will inspire you to get some of those Holiday cards made...or perhaps it will inspire a different kind of card. All are welcome at TIME OUT Challenges

Here it is:


And my take with a stamp you have seen a few times before but with a few little twists:


I really like the natural colours in this photo and my eye was drawn to the wreath hanging on the ladder. I wanted to use this wreath stamp but wasn't sure it would look right in a natural colour but I went ahead and stamped it with SU crumb cake ink on kraft card and loved how it looked. For the rest I have used red and white pens...very complicated!!

Our Guest Designer this week is Toni. I am sure many of you will know her creative and inspiring blog-if you are not, pop over there and I am sure you will come away with a list of new ideas!!

Our wonderful DT have been so creative with their takes on this photo. Check their cards out here, then you know what to do:

Take TIME OUT and get crafting!!
