First "As You Like It" Challenge and a DT CALL

I'm a bit nervous today, because it is the start of our FIRST EVER challenge at our new challenge blog:

The aim of our new challenge is to enable you to create a project that showcases your own style, so don't forget to tell us what makes it YOUR style!!!

Every alternate Thursday we will host a new challenge with only a few loose rules, so we hope everyone can all join in and have fun.

Our first challenge is also a DT callso if you want to apply to be one of our teamies then enter our challenge and type "DT" after your name in the linky.  We also have candy available too!!!

Pop over to the As You Like It Challenge blog to see the DT Call information.

Our first challenge is sponsored by my favourite specialist ribbon company, 
They have fabulous multi-buy deals, so pop over and see their lovely range of ribbons and twine.

Our first challenge theme is to showcase a project using your Favourite Die or Punch and you MUST make it clear which chosen die/punch is your favourite.

Anyone who is a regular to my blog will know that I'm a HUGE fan of gorgeous dies, so although I tried, I could not decide on my ultimate favourite.  I have greedily opted for 4 of my current favourites!!

  1. Spellbinders Labels Eighteen (this is my 'must-have' nestie and if you visit me often you'll know that I used this one lots!)
  2. Memory Box Corner Bow (I've been in love with this beautifully delicate die since I got it)
  3. Memory Box PoppyStamp Simple Banner (cute little banner perfect for an empty corner and also handy for a short sentiment if you have the patience to get the letters to print in the right positions!!)
  4. Memory Box Locina Buckle (Fabulously elegant for dressing a pretty ribbon)

Here's my card, which also showcases one of my favourite stamp companies (LOTV), my favourite papers (Lucy Cromwell from Papermania), and also my favourite sketch (one from a challenge blog a few months ago that I saved!!)


I hope you'll join us for our first challenge, show us your style, showcase your Favourite Dies and/or Punches. And don't forget to enter our DT call if you would like to join our fun team.

Please feel free to grab our badge for your sidebar as we'd love you to support us.

I've also linked this card up to the Make It Monday link party as my favourite card of the week (actually it's my favourite card for quite a while!).
Happy crafting.

Just adorable! Funny story - I thought your DT rules where the challenge rules. I was thinking those are some pretty stiff rules for participants. Then I put it all together - guess my brain wasn't work first thing this morning ;)
