Good Crafternoon Peeps

Hi Peeps tiz Friday woo hoo and my 4th post in a row! ........surely there's a prize with my name on somewhere ha ha

Just a quick one to share news of a new weekly challenge over on

My DT buddie Shelagh McCarthy and I will be running a weekly challenge featuring Household Items to Upcycle both of us will share a make for inspiration :) It will run Friday to Friday and winners and the next weeks challenge will be announced at 7 pm (ish) each Friday. I shall send an event invite to all members !

For Up Cycle Fridays Challenge winners , we have a lovely prize of two Digi's from LEJ Designs..........

We are hoping that you can join in as the stuff we will be using will be ready available as most of us will have it lying around and its a great way to use up scraps etc :) plus in these skint times you could be making really useful gifts or items on a budget so to speak . It doesn't have to be a mahoosive project just a quick easy fun make :)

Here's my Up Cycled Tin Can (it took 10 mins to make)

Stuff Ive Used
Alcohol inks - Slate - Gold - Green
Tim Holtz book plate, a flower from my stash and a few brads

And leading beautifully on

Why not go on to enter your makes into the

Bigger prizes on offer and a great way to show your upcycled wares to the blogging community........If you've already made something for CM it would be silly not to join in really ha ha And please don't forget you don't have to enter altered stuff... anything such as cards, twinchies, tags, you name it, the DT do a mixed bag of makes for inspiration so why not go have a nosy and join in !

So hoping you can join us, see you there xx
