Well let's get on with this week's Challenge. 

Now, as previously mentioned it's time to introduce this week's Challenge from Stamp-n-Doodle, this week we're doing something different, we have picked a Member of the Design Team and let them pick the theme.  

This week it's the turn of Claire


I am a stay at home Mum to two boys aged 11 & 4.  Crafting has been a part of my life since I was small, whether it be sewing soft toys, cross stitching, sewing or making things out of paper.

The other main interest since childhood is nature and wildlife, and I have a particular fascination with birds. Being outside amoungst it all gives me the relaxation and serenity needed to carry on with the everyday bustle of life.

 I studied Microbiology, and when I did work I was involved in the UK national surveillance for Flu and the MMR jab. I too have worked as an independent consultant providing Quality Assurance assistant to pharmaceutical companies.

It is almost impossible to have a photo taken of myself with my eyes open, to the exasperation of my husband and Dad (thank goodness for digital photography and multiple shots :-D )

As well as papercrafting I sew and have made full size patchwork quilts for my Mum & Sister. I make all my own curtains and roman blinds and get just as excited by lovely patterned material as I do lovely patterned 12x12 papers

I can also play the classical guitar and clarinet

This leads me nicely into the theme I have set for this weeks challenge - To include some form of stitching on your creation. I have taken myself to my word and used a sewing machine, but Faux stitching is just as acceptable and I too include it on many of my own cards.

 Have fun and I can't wait to see what you come up with

So this weeks Challenge is:

'Stitching - Real or Faux'

This Challenge is quite easy, all you need to do is complete a Card / Project that follows the Theme.  It can be anything remember for example, Cards Scrapbook Layouts, Boxes, Bags, Tags, 3D Creations and maybe even Jewellery.

The Prize

A chance to grab one of Stamp-n-Doodle's Digi Stamps.

So let's see what the Design Team got up to this Week.

and then there's mine:

Don't forget you have until Tuesday 18th September at 8:00pm (BST) to enter this Challenge.

We cannot wait to see what you come up with for this Challenge.

Anne-Marie and the rest of the Design Team
