Final Week for June Challenge

You have five days left to enter our current challenge:

We have the final weekend of MoFo here and the winter solstice is just behind us - we are now moving into the Spring with a few seconds added onto each day and a few less each night!

I quote from the photo: "Last night I met a fella who was telling me he went up Kunanyi (AKA Mt Wellington) to take this photo. Due to snow and icy roads a few of the gates were closed so he had to walk from the springs to the summit in the dark, freezing night, at 3am, resulting in this photo of Ryoji Ikeda's Spectra. Um wow... If this person was you, please tag yourself to bask in your own glory! Dark Mofo MONA - Museum of Old and New Art"

This is my version taken from the front verandah looking over the river
Nowhere near as good!

Anyway, back to the challenge

Please: remember, no stamps - even sentiment stamps!
We find it distressing to have to remove you from the chance to win

....with the TWIST of BLING!

Hello Peeps

Hope your week has gone well - and you're crafting up a storm!

It's been quite stormy here lately - lots of rain and cold and winter weather!
It's also festival time here - 

A festival of food, music and performance and fire!

Here are some Dark Mofo photos to enjoy!

Heavy Metal Kitchen

Flamin’ heck! Mona’s Executive Chef Vince Trim returns to the Winter Feast with his Heavy Metal Kitchen, including a ‘wall of fire’. 

Nope, haven't been yet - too wet, cold and dark to go out at night for us now. 

I have been trying to get my creative mojo going and tidy up around here.

It's the third week of the current challenge and w have had some beautiful entries - unfortunately, some people don't realise that stamps are not to be used and will have their entries excluded but vast majority have stuck to the rules. 

Here is some further inspiration from the Design Team -two cards but remember, you can make any paper based item for this challenge.


There is a random draw prize:

Stamps, dies and Embossing folder

Challenge#80: Flowers and more flowers 
TWIST Bling it up!

Hello Peeps! 
Welcome to the June Challenge. Winter, eh. 
June the 1st for us was calm, still and bloody cold.
The Sunset on the 1st June certainly provided some bling as did the sunrise......
this is the sunset!

WOW... last night's absolutely stunning sunset from Constitution Dock in Hobart thanks to Jarrod Barnes.

Located in the harbourside area of Hobart at Sullivans Cove, the rock-walled marina making up Constitution Dock has an opening for boats with pedestrian access around the site, and is lined with heritage buildings that date back over a century. Nearby Hunter Street is where the British colonial ships used to drop their anchors. A reminder of the trading history of the historic port of Hobart is the 'SV May Queen', Australia's oldest sail trading vessel, which is moored in Constitution Dock and dates back to the mid-1800s.

A popular pasttime to indulge in when wandering around Constitution Dock is sampling the fresh fish and chips from one of several floating punts and devouring them at the busy waterfront area.

How's that?

On with the challenge for June - who doesn't love flowers .... and they are especially welcome in the winter months as they hold that promise of Spring and new life.

The twist is to add some bling and who doesn't need bling in their life either? 

Now bling can be lots of things - it can be the sparkly stuff you add to the project or it can be the sunrise in Constitution Dock!

What is a little and what is a lot will depend on your own personal tastes.
