Challenge 92 - More than 1 Fold.

Hi all and welcome back to Moving Along with the Times.
WOW you did great with your cards for the Precious Metals Challenge last week they are all super.

So onto this week. A few things first before we go onto the challenge.

Welcome back to Kelli who is a Returning Designer with us. She had a break due to other commitments but is now back with us.

Also we have a Design Team Call just now. If you would like to join the MAWTT Family then pop over to this POST to see the details. 

 Finally, can we ask you to follow the Theme of the challenge as its only fair to do that before entering. 


So Its Shell who decided on our theme this week which is 

 More than 1 Fold but not an Easel Card

We are happily being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps who have kindly given us some images to play with! (Thanks to the Peeps Over there!)

 The Prize is 7 Free Digis from them. Boy will you have a problem choosing as there are hundreds of fantastic images to see. 

The Design Team Girls have done a great job. Lots of us have other pictures of our cards on our blogs and how we made them. So feel free to pop over and get some inspiration.

Challenge 91 - Precious metals

This week at MAWTT it is my turn (Brenda) to host the challenge, but firstly I want to congratulate Vicky on her win in last week's challenge set by Pami. Thanks to each and everyone of you who enter and share your fabulous creations with us.

So, your next challenge is to work with the theme 'Precious Metals'. I would like to see any project that includes something metal (or metal looking) and the best-known precious metals are the coinage metals gold and silver and another is platinum.

So show us your cards or projects that include something of one of these metals as highlighted in the photograph above, this could be metal embellishments, wire, mirri board, metal sheet, altered tins etc.
Our sponsor this week is Merly Impressions , they are a family run business started about 18 months ago by Chrissy Tingey. They specialise in supplying scrapbooking and cardmaking materials from Kaisercraft to customers in the UK.

"We are the UK’s largest suppliers of products from Kaisercraft who are Australia’s largest manufacturer of scrapbooking and crafting products. We take time to carefully select the best of their products and make them available to our customers in the UK and the rest of Europe. We try to stock all of their latest releases and the best of their previously released products. By the way, we also stock products from other manufacturers. For example, Prima E-Line flowers, ScrapFX chipboard products, Kindyglitz Glitter glue and recently new to us a great selection of Stampotique Rubber Stamps."

This is the fabulous prize they are offering this week to the winner, which includes stamps, papers, gems, rub ons and flowers.

Just take a look at the DT projects which are fabulous again this week. All the girls have really taken this theme and expanded on it to give you some amazing inspiration. Please do pop over to their blogs and leave a lovely comment for them.

Fabulous handmade silver flowers

Lisa couldn't choose between gold or silver and made two cards, one of each.

A lovely CAS silver and white creation from Hazel.

Laurie made this especially for me for my birthday last weekend. Thankyou Laurie. The letters are metal.

I chose the Tim Holtz birdcage die, the same as Laurie (though we didn't know that at the time) and used silver embossed card, a metal corner, metal beads, chain and key.

Shell has created this gorgeous 'Missing You' card with stunning purple and silver as complementary colours.

Have fun this week showing us your precious metal projects and good luck. Please remember to link your project back to this challenge blog and we will accept three entries per person per challenge. To be fair on everyone, including our sponsors, backlinked work cannot be included in the entries when winners are chosen. The winner this week will have shown us very clearly what precious metal they have chosen and indicated it in their post write up. (Unfortunately we have had alot of entries lately that haven't directly followed the theme - so to be fair to other entrants we will are not able to include any in the draw that haven't).

You have until next Wednesday evening the 30th March at 8.00pm (GMT) to enter your creations. I do hope you will join in and play along, good luck!

Luv Hazel, Lisa, Pami, Laurie and Me (Brenda) xoxox

Ellephantastic is very honoured to sponsor this challenge.

Hi I am Helen. I suffer with CFS/ME & found a few years ago I could no longer work due to my illness.

To give myself something to do (when feeling well) I decided to go back to my roots....crafting!!

I grew up drawing, knitting & 'Cutting & Sticking'

Now I like to do all kinds of paper crafting, card making, altered art, knitting & sewing.

My fun hobby has unintentionally grown into a li'l crafty business for me which I am loving.
There is nothing I like better than to put a smile on someone's face because of my crafting :0)
You can order & buy a lot of my work from my shop. You can also now buy some crafting products.

the prize is ... 4Digi Images of the Winners Choice.

The Dt were lucky enough to be given a couple of their images to work with and here is what we created ...
I also design & draw my own digital art.

Lots of love
