Good morning, a very happy Saturday, and welcome to July.

I'm really happy to be hosting this month's challenge, and the theme is A Four-Legged Friend.
These can be any four-legged animal you like, so think cats, dogs, farmyard or even jungle.
The animals must be the main focus of your project, so no tiny mouse sat under a leaf somewhere in the corner, please.
Here's my first project.

If you would like to see how this came together please pop across to my blog.
Take care and I'll see you next week with my second project x

I simply love kitty cats, so this month's challenge made me very excited:
Pop over to my blog to see what I used to create this tag.

Thanks for joining me.


Hi everyone. For this month's fun challenge, I created this journal page which is full of Tim Holtz products
including two Mischievous Cats, who happen to be celebrating Halloween early.

 To see how this page all came together, please visit my blog Let's Art Journal.
Hugs, Jo x



Two very different takes on this theme from me - I just adore animals! 
You can get details on my blog post here.

 Happy July everyone. It's no secret that my favourite 4 legged friends are cats, especially my own Billy cat. I made this anniversary card using the fab and fun Visible Image cat stencil and stamps.

All the details, and my Billy cat are over on my blog here if you would like to see how I made it.
Have a lovely summer and I'll be back with my 2nd make soon.

Bye for now,
Jane x

  3. Thank you for the challenge. Lovely work by the design team. (I make mostly digital cards due to my sore hands and bad eyes)

  4. I love your challenges and thanks for the generous prize each month. I would like to see the team using products available in the shop on their inspirations and think it would be nice to ask players to also use at least one thing you currently sell. I like having a bit of time to think about the themes so love the monthly challenges. Thanks for all the inspiration. Hugz

  5. I wasn't around during the summer so I didn't see this post till now, after reading your latest saying you are moving to FB. :(
