Anything that is under the water, such as rocks, fish, mermaids, coral, get the idea.

# 41 : Card Challenge: Make it Floral


That's all I can say...You are all so wonderful..It made me feel soooo good to see all those entries, and a bunch of new followers...Welcome, nice to meet you ...

I will be announcing the top 3 next week, as before:  one week the challenge, the other week top 3 announcement. It;s just takes a little while to get back into that routine. 
I have to take my time, (and lots of cups of coffee), to pick the top 3 as there were so many wonderful entries...awesome...
I might need some help from the lovely DT..

Just confirming that all challenges from now on will be Card Challenges. I do plan to mix it up later on, but for now Cards only and one entry per person.
You can enter as many other challenges as you want , I have no limit there, just only one entry here and you must be a follower...Thanks

And also a big thanks for all of your suggestions for future challenges, taking them all on board..

Oh yeah, nearly forgot.
I had a couple of requests for Guest Designers
So if you are up for the challenge, I will choose a candidate or two with each challenge. That way I can check out your blog (stalk, cough) and once chosen, I will contact with you. Then you can be the Guest Designer on the next challenge. Just leave GD after your name on your entry.

New Card Challenge is :

Make it Floral

What does that mean? As long as your card has flowers, a flower or covered in flowers, it's in. This includes pics, stamps , die cuts, punches, whatever.
Here is what we came up with to inspire you...

CG came up with this absolutely gorgeous card...I am in love with doggy already, the flowers are gorgeous as well...

Susan created this beautiful card, check our her blog for details, very elegant.

Wynn made this lovely card with layers of embossed flowers and 3d flowers..

I used an ek success large borderpunch and a vintage rose print for this one

I am starting to notice that I like blues and pinks...
so hop on over for more details here

# 40: First Challenge back: Card with Butterfly ( or two, three or more)

Hi everyone.....
Big Hugs to you all

Wahooo! I am back Baby, I am back. 

Welcome to 'Crafting with Dragonflies'. After a bit of an unplanned and certainly unwanted hiatus due to health issues, Crafting with Dragonflies was put on hold.
 I wasn't even sure if I could plan anything into the future. But I am still here and ready to go again.

I recently asked my precious followers, and thanks for giving me great feedback, if playing along in a card challenge without a prize, is an OK thing. The general consensus seams to be that you are not too concerned about winning a prize, but recognition is enough...
That made my heart sing....Awesome.

Sooooo, this means that we won't have any prizes or sponsors for a while and that is just fine with me, as that took up a lot of time, and a bit of stress. Which I am happy to be without for a while.
So no winners but there will be top 3....

This way we can just all have some fun.

For the first fortnight back in, just getting my toes wet so to speak...

Any Card with a Butterfly on it.....( or more)

The Butterfly must be obviously visible and be part of your design ( not an after-thought)

So there you go....too easy. Rules are as before just check the tab, the challenge is fortnightly, just changed it to Saturday start, and it's Australian Sydney time.

Hilde's cards, hop on over to my blog to check at the detes.

This beautiful card has been made by CG. I am so glad she agreed to play along again with us...

Our gorgeous Susan, who has runs Unstampabelles has also re joined and is contributed these gorgeous the look of both of them...thanks Susan...
