Ashtead Craft Club this month. The theme was diecuts and diecut negatives and I actually made up this card there which was a first since I started back in April of last year. I usually just cut lots of dies or make up toppers to assemble later.
I also took along some of my own white card to cut some dies too (I now have a flock of Humming Birds and Geese (for which I see Swans!) and one lady kindly brought in some other diecuts to share as well.
But the bit which really got me was the introduction of the membership challenge for the year. Obviously, having started mid-year last year I had missed this before so it was all new to me. They are doing a year long challenge based loosely on the book "Wreck this Journal" with theirs called "Dec this Journal" as in decorate, or the DJ Challenge.
We each received a Kraft journal which we can decorate and inside were lots of A4 sheets and a bag of blank cards and bits and bobs.
We are tasked to decorate at least 10 A4 sheets using the 16 prompts on the intro sheet or the 5 prompts which will be given through the course of the year (these 5 can be used as stand alone challenges too)
Well you just have to say I was like the cat who'd got the cream.
Add this to the following day's surprise package from Dawn. Two super new 12x12 scrapbooks and papers and embellies looking for new homes. Can life get much better?
