# 118 - Large Christmas Tag -last challenge for the year

Big Dragonfly hugs, hope you are all well. This will be our last challenge for 2018. We are giving our Design Team a well deserved rest to get ready for the busy season.

Please keep a look out for the top 3 of the last challenge in next Saturdays post. 

Nothing like a beautiful large tag to get the creative juices flowing. So we are asking you to make a large Tim Holtz type of tag. So they are approx. 15 cm long and around 6 cm wide. You don't need to have the die , just ball park it and you got it. Most of us have a hole punch for the top. Too easy.
I have often just used a normal card size ( C6) and cut them out from front and back of the card so you get two. No drama

Let's see your wonderful works ( I have often used these instead of cards, specially when I have forgotten to send one, lol.) and attached it to the present, or gift or anything I was handing over.

But having said all that, what ever tag you can manage is fine.
Blessings Hilde

Here are the wonderful tags from the Team to inspire you:





There you have it, looking forward to your lovely tags, blessings Hilde

#115 - Mostly pink - Pinktober - Breastcancer month

Hi all and thanks for looking. What a wonderful array of CAS cards were to be found in out last challenge, please keep a lookout next Saturday for the top 3.

Today we are starting a new challenge which is very close to my heart. As some of you may know I am a Breast cancer survivor, and even though the cancer has come back I am still alive and kicking. 
I know too well the ups and downs of this journey, and my heart goes out to everyone that is connected to this awful thing called cancer.

It not only affects the person with cancer but all of their families and friends. So in dedication to those amazing women, we would like you to make a card for this occasion.
Please keep it mainly pink and add the pink ribbon if you can.

Here are some inspirational cards from the Dragonfly team:

# 11 Amelia B
 I thought it a perfect Spring card with the mouse getting ready to plant new blossoms

loved the easel card with the cute bear and beautiful embellishments

Wishing I had an old chair I could put a cushion, hat and then add beautiful flowers on and around it.
Certainly hard to pick just 3, love Ina.
