Challenge 33 - Charms...

We have been totally blown away this week by all the fantastic entries to our Winter Wonderland Challenge and it may interest you to know that we received the highest number of submissions so far this year.
Thank you all so much for your continued support and enthusiasm xxx
Many of the gorgeous projects you shared definitely oozed WOW-Factor as we visited your blogs and we're hopeful that you will enjoy our next theme just as much ... if not more.
This week we challenge you to include
CHARMS
Most of us have one or two lying around in a drawer, be they metal or enamelled ... BUT if not then don't panic!
Why not try making your own from metallic card with punches? ... or stamp onto shrink plastic/acetate and colour with permanent markers or glitter glues? Peel off stickers are perfect for 'faux charms' if placed onto metallic or glitter card and cut out. Then you just need to dangle them from pretty ribbon or wire and jobs'a'good'un.
Let your imagination loose, experiment and see what happens. You may actually surprise yourself!
The team have some examples here to give your tastebuds a tickle so if you'd like to know more details then pop over to our personal blogs by clicking the linked names below.



The deadline for this challenge is
12 noon (UK time)
Thursday 2nd September 2010
You are free to create whatever you like ... it doesn't have to be a card ... in fact, show us as many different projects as you want to share.
Just remember ... the most important thing is to have fun and don't forget to leave us a direct link to your project in our comment box so we can come and admire your creativity.

Ann, Irene, Max
