Craft Your Days Away FIRST Challenge - Favourite Things

Whoo hoo, it's our very first challenge on the brand new Craft Your Days Away challenge blog. Joanne has picked a fab theme to kick us off... 'Favourite Things'. We all have out favourites don't we ;-) On my easel card calendar I have used loads of my crafting favourites: image, paper, lace, pins, flowers, buttons, Promarkers, Distress Stickles and loads of glimmer mist on the flowers. I have also paper pieced Daisy's outfit which is a fave thing of mine at the moment.

I do hope you can come and join us with our first challenge. We are sponsored by the fab Simon Says Stamp.


Please pop over to the blog and check out the gorgeous work made by the rest of the DT.
