UnstampaBelles Challenge

Hi there .Welcome to my room and thanks for calling in .
Special welcome to new followers, Nikki,  you should see her beautiful  Shaker Christmas card ,
and one new entrant in my Christmas card challenge , Kate.[mamapez5]
I have visited Kate 's blog and am inspired by her hand made flowers , her vintage and her poppy paint fusion card. Now  I hope that has  aroused your curiosity enough for you to call in to see these and her two Christmas cards entered into the challenge .
My card to share is one for a challenge  which  I found through a blog pal Annmaree.
Celebrating Christmas.

Info from
Now it's time for our first challenge and what better way to start off with than a CELEBRATION.
This month we would love to see all your CELEBRATION papercraft creations.
You will find our RULES in the right sidebar.
We have two important rules to remember No Stamps (with the exception of a sentiment) and Have Fun.
Challenge #1 closes 31st July and winner announced with the next challenge Monday, 1st August.

Now as I have a few craft friends who do not have a lot of stamps I have been exploring ways to encourage/ inspire  them  to seek alternative images to use. I have used a chipboard image here . Quite effective , do you agree?
So I hope this qualifies for the challenge .
Catch you again soon , cheers for now Shirley-Anne
