Welcome To Challenge 1.

Hi There and Welcome to the first Moving Along with the Times Challenge.

We have been working really hard to make this Challenge blog a success.

We were formally The Daisy & Dandelion Challenge blog but were finding that people couldn't join in as you had to use something from the D&D range. With the recession and people finding it hard we had a re-think and decided to go for a more general blog so that everyone could join in.

Zoe has had to step down from the Challenge as she has other commitments, we would like to wish her well and I'm sure you will too.

So onto the first challenge.

This week it is my sketch that you have to work with.

There is an additional theme with it being Wimbledon this fortnight I thought that a colour theme of Strawberries and Cream with a hint of Chocolate would be great! No need for any tennis though,much better just to watch it!

Next up is the Prizes We have 2 Sponsors this week. The first one is Clare who is on our Design Team.

She runs an online Shop so pop over to see what she has in store

She has kindly given us this Pink Gems Stamp of Sailor Jack.

The second Sponsor this week is Julie who has just opened her online shop JB Crafting Supplies. Again pop over to see what she has in store.

Right next is out Design Team Cards. We loved making them and hope you like them too.

Clare (Taffy Crafts)

Clare (Thread- Bare)




We have an email address if you don't have a blog but would like to take part in the challenge. Just send your card to it and we will pop it onto the blog for others to see and comment on. Address is on the sidebar.

Hope you like the challenge and have fun.

Leave a comment and a link to your card below.
And you have until 9pm Wednesday UK time 1st July
to enter your creations.

Happy Crafting from The Design Team at Moving along with the Times.
