#248 Anything Goes

Welcome back and Happy New Year from all of us to all of you. We hope that 2020 will be a happy, healthy and prosperous year for you all.

We thought we would start things off with a nice easy challenge, Anything Goes. This is your chance to pop all those things in that you might have made over the Christmas period and had nowhere to post, although we would obviously love not to have too many Christmas cards as it's now behind us for another year.

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, but just for this first challenge the theme is Anything Goes.

As it's the start of the year we are offering a one off prize for our winner, which I will be choosing as I came out of the hat to pick the winner and Top 5 for this first challenge of 2020, offered up by the lovely Kim.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT


I've used some stamps from Studiolight, and backing papers from Polkadoodles, details on my blog

Hello, I made an exploding box for a 1st Birthday. I hope you like it.


I've had fun with a Woodware stamp for this project. Details can be found on my blog.

Happy crafting, Angela xXx


I have used Tattered Lace's Just for you swirl die along with dies from their Indian summer decoupage set and the accompanying Autumn fragrance charisma download matting and layering the design onto pale blue pearlescent card, pink card and finally white card.


Instead of a flat card, I made a pop up box as a new home greeting. The base die is from Spellbinders, the flowers from a variety of manufacturers and the papers are from a Joanna Sheen box kit.


For this challenge I created this small canvas in remembrance of my dad. He loved the old song called "Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue. I used a couple of musical dies, old sheet music, chipboard guitar and notes, and some small metal embellishments.


I thought that an easel card for a Wedding would work well for this challenge. I only wish that they were easier to take photographs of lol.


For this Challenge I decided to share some Amigurumi dolls I have created recently. These were made using 4ply acrylic yarn, a 2mm crochet hook and free patterns found on the net. You can find more details on my blog. Happy New Year and happy crafting everyone!!


I really need to fill up my Christmas cards stash again so I thought I would for this challenge. The image I used it from Purple Onion Designs and I love how the ink blended background really makes it shine! Happy crafting everyone ;o)


I have made this card with a Mo Manning Image called Kisses for my Sweet coloured with Promarkers added some Flowers and Pearls


A mini album to give to a special friend. For more info and pictures visit my blog 'Gilby's Corner'


This challenge I made a couple of cards for my Daughter's Memorydex, you can find more info on my blog Tales From The Craft Room


My card was made for one of my book club "birthdays" and included dies and embossing folder I got free with a magazine. The beauty of this design is it can be adapted for men and women!

We look forward to seeing what you can come up with!
