NOVEMBER CI CHALLENGE - WINTER FROST



Plus an emailed entry from Alison..



Hope you all had a good Halloween.  No callers at my door the other night, which is very unusual indeed - however all the local children around have just about grown up, so lots of sweeties left in my cupboard (...I'll just have to eat them myself then!!).

Just slightly late with the new November Challenge, but here I am with the topic for our last challenge before Christmas 2015 (where did that year go?!).  Effie is in charge of November, and has picked the lovely theme of 'Winter Frost'.  So I guess anything winteryish with a touch of snow or glitter would be perfect for this theme.  We do hope you will join in with something wintery or christmassy!

Here are the usual guidelines:

CHALLENGE GUIDELINES
To enter this month's Crafty Individuals Challenge please put together your chosen project, which must include at least one Crafty Individuals product please, then post your Challenge project on your Blog, before the end of the month, and include a link back to this Blog.  Leave a link in the URL box displayed in this post to take us directly to your Challenge project, which will then appear on this Blog as a thumbnail image - so we can all see your wonderful arty work.  If you don't have a blog we are happy to accept emailed image entries too.

At the end of the month Effie will set about choosing five lucky participants, each of whom will win a CI rubber stamp of their choice, and don't forget that as per usual, once you have linked in your creation, you can also claim a lovely 25% discount code to use on anything you purchase from the CI Website, which will be valid to use until the 10th of December.

Go for it, and enjoy the challenge x

....

As always we very much look forward to seeing your entries - you will be in with a chance of winning a free stamp, and you will also be able to obtain a cool 25% CI web discount.  When you have linked in your entry please email us at info@craftyindividuals.co.uk to obtain your special code, and then go shopping!

Normally I would display Effie's makes first, however I have asked her to do a bit of a step by step, as her Winter Frost inspirational projects are delightful.  So Effie's beautiful makes will follow on during the month ahead - here is just a little taster close up of one of them for you now:


Fabulous!  However I do have makes by other teamies of course to inspire, starting with this gorgeous snowy scene from lovely Florence (tree from the popular stamp CI-209)....


Followed by a couple of beauties from lovely Joanna (featuring CI-448, and CI-446 and an image from our 'Merry Christmas' mini book) ....




Finally a very lovely Christmas ornament from lovely Lynne - so pretty (made with a mini canvas back and a curly word from CI-446)!...




Lots more lovelies to come throughout November.

Looking forward to seeing YOUR make.  Thanks for the ongoing kind and caring comments.

Back soon,

Jean x
