Simon Says....So Charming

Another great response last week everyone...wow!!! I am feeling the love!!!!! Thank you to all who entered & congratulations to the winner (TBA very soon!!!)

This weeks challenge for you is "SO CHARMING" - charms are becoming a big hit lately so what better time to get them out and create something with charms!!!! They don't have to be shop bought ones, you could make your own maybe from tin foil, shrink plastic, tin cans ( be careful here ,, don't want any injuries blamed on us !) :-)

Sziasztok! Heti kihívásunkon szeretnénk ha alkotásodat valamilyen fémfüggővel díszítenéd. Itt meg tudod nézni, hogy miről is van szó. Ha nincs neked ilyened, akkor készíteni is tudsz pl. egy konzerves doboz tetejéből kivágsz egy kis szívet, készítesz rá egy pici lyukat és már kész is, de pl.nyakláncra való medál is jó.:) Inspirációt meríthetsz a DT tagok alkotásaiból is! Heti vendégtervezőnk Wendy Vecchi. Wendy egy nagyon tehetséges tervező! Látogass el blogjára, fantasztikusak a munkái!!!

This week, we have a VERY special guest designer with us, Wendy Vecchi. Wendy has an amazing blog !!!! She is pure talent! Not only does she design her own stamps, studio 490, she does design work for Maya Road,Tim Holtz,idea-ology and Ranger. Wendy is also an exclusive demo artist for Ranger and was demonstrating on the same Mexican cruise as our very own Heidi and Terra a few weeks ago !!
