Week 2 of September Challenge and Winner's from August!

 Hi folks - time to announce our August winners and bring you some more inspiration for the current challenge. There seems to be a bit of a frightening shudder about this one, so I have some things to encourage you to have a go.......

There seems to be a bit of fear around the idea of a phoenix rising......

The theme is really about coming back from adversity...
so, someone might have been ill, survived an accident, come through a rough year,
passed an exam under difficult circumstances.....

......mostly it is that they have survived!

There are lots of images of the phoenix on FB and Pinterest to get you started
if you want to be linear about this and use a Phoenix
(but there is not need to do that).

You can just make something that is about the idea of winning through the tough times 
and being strong.

A breast cancer card is a good one or a get well card after an operation - especially if it has been an operation that is unexpected. These days it could be recovering from COVID19!

Firstly the August Winners

Week One for September Challenge#104: Phoenix (rising from the ashes) TWIST use an embossing folder

 Well Hello peeps!

Welcome to the first Monday in September! I hope you are all doing well and keeping clear of that nasty old virus. It is Springtime here and we are enjoying sunshine and warmth as well as winds and snow. We are feeling hopeful though - and our island has no COVID19. we feel like we are coming out of adversity ....a bit like the Pheonix really, rising from the fire and ashes. 

'Golden Hour' over the Southwest National Park , Tasmania
Thanks to Benjamin Alldridge.

You know, I set these challenges back in January - well before we had heard of the pandemic and each month the challenge titles seem more prophetic. There is a lot of hardship out there and a lot of people suffering but I know from history that we will rise again from this. We don't know in what shape or condition but we will be OK in the end. 

So, let's see what you can produce with a theme of rising from adversity like a phoenix and don't forget to use the TWIST of an embossing folder somewhere in your work.

There is the normal prize available
