Sarah Hurley Challenges - Thanks

Evening all

Hope everyone is doing finer out there and getting back to normal after the Christmas break?
Its been terrible up here in Scotland with the terrible gales! So much damage to houses around this area plus all the fallen trees! We have been really luck and the only damage was to the wheelie bin! Hope you didn't suffer too much damage!

Today over at Sarah Hurley Challenges we have the first challenge of the year!


A nice challenge for anyone making some wee cards or gifts for people after gifts at Christmas!

Here is what I made

I used the delish papers from the Wonderland Cd, some of my nesties, ribbon, distress ink and a wee sentiment to finish

Remember and check out the Challenge blog and see what the talented Design team came up with! Plus a lucky winner will win some of Sarah's amazing goodies! Remember you don't need to use any of Sarah's products to enter the challenge!

I also have some really amazing news too!
The lovely Sarah has started the Craft Academy and Craft Academy For Kids two amazing new blogs for help, inspiration and everything in-between!

About Craft Academy

"Craft Academy is a brand new concept from me and my talented design team!

We will be bringing you a whole host of inspiration, projects and tutorials over a number of crafty disciplines including card making, scrapbooking, altered art and stitching, to name a few! They will also be at all levels of difficulty, from beginner to advanced.

This is to be an interactive experience so we encourage you to give us feedback, ask questions, show us your projects and suggest things you would like to see - we will be glad to take them on board!

We have also created Crafty Kids Academy - I believe its very important to start young and encourage creativity in everyone no matter what their age. I was lucky enough to come from a creative family and am truly grateful for that experience, its also a great way to have your little ones work alongside you while you try to fit in some much needed crafty time!

We have some fantastic sponsors on board and there are a few more exciting additions and other things to come and we will be announcing them over the next few weeks - we hope you'll pop back next Thursday for the first 'lesson'! :o)"

Hope you will join in with the first lesson

Back soon
