Challenge 8 - The Great Outdoors

Hi everyone! Welcome to Challenge 8 of the Crafty Calendar Challenge! I can't believe we're on Challenge 8 already! It still seems like we only just started the challenge blog!


Anyway, first and foremost, we hope you like our brand new blog look! We decided to freshen it up for spring and summer and we're really pleased with how it looks now! Please feel free to grab our new banner to put on your blog if you'd like!


Thank you for your lovely entries to last month's 'April Fools' challenge!We loved having a look at your humorous and cheerful cards, a great way to cheer us up after all the rain we've been getting here in the UK recently! :)




For this month's challenge, we would like you to create a card or project to do with 'The Great Outdoors'. This could be shown through the image, colours, embellishments, papers, anything you like! The possibilities are endless so be as creative as you like!

There is an optional extra of insects, but please remember this is not compulsory.


This month, we are being sponsored by Just Tracy's, a fabulous new craft store which sells gorgeous stamps and products!



Tracy is offering one lucky winner these two gorgeous rubber stamps from the store! Thanks so much for the fabulous prize Tracy!


This month, our Guest Designer is Heather over at Rica's Haven! Heather is such an amazingly talented crafter and makes such beautiful cards - please do check out her lovely blog to see her gorgeous designs!

Here are our cards for your inspiration:
