Anything Goes at Imagination Crafts

Hi Folks
Sorry I haven't been around for a few days.  We had a lovely weekend away in Wales.  The Queen Annual Convention was as good as ever.  Wonderful tribute bands and great company.  The weather was really good too.  

We arrived home on Monday to find our garden looking like a building site.  We have decided that we need a low maintenance garden so we are having all our patios redone and a large granite chipped area put in.  The company doing it started on Monday and should be finished by Thursday.  I promise I will show some before and after pictures.

Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Imagination Crafts Challenges.  Our theme for this month is:
Anything Goes
You can enter with any project you like but if you do use any Imagination Crafts products you could win a £40 voucher to spend on line in their store.  How great is that.

Here is my inspiration project.


I went for a simple but effective christmas card this month.  I used part of a christmas tree stencil together with sparkle gel.  I then added green glitter over the Sparkle Gel.  Whilst this was drying I matted some patterned paper from my stash onto green mirror card.  The topper was then matted onto more green mirror card.  A lovely bow and some gems together with a sentiment finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Imagination Crafts Challenge Blog for full challenge details.  Don't forget to check out the wonderful creations from my talented teamies.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Brown Sugar - Anything goes
Sister Act - Anything goes
HIMCR - Any holiday
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes
Scribble and Scrap - Anything goes
OLLCB - Use a bow
Eureka Stamps - Use some bling

Running into glitches trying to leave you a comment, Mags. I hope this comes through this time. This is both simple and elegant. Love the sparkle on the tree. I'm really tickled that you chose to play along in our challenge this week at Through the Craft Room Door. Hope to see you again soon.
