Challenge 69 - black and...

Well howdy! How you all doing in your corner of the world? Well in my corner I thought spring had sprung... as we had a couple of days of beautiful sunny weather! Well the birds liked it too as there was much whistling and singing! Penthouse wars continued for the top nest site in the big conifer! That's on hold now as its raining! More forecast for tomorrow too.... ~sighs~ Spring please come soon!

So many thanks to you all who came to check out our challenge last week, see another joke! Anyway... the RPT has done his stuff and the lucky winner of the $10 spend at Simon Says Stamp is Jacqui P! Email me your details and include the challenge number in your title line ;))

So this week? Well its all black! Well not all black I'll let you add another colour ;)) This week we're sponsored by Tando Creative Di the designer makes the most fantasticabulous chippie! the shapes are wonderful and are perfect for card making. The chippie is white and colours beautifully, its perfectly sized for cards too. Some of the DT girls have had some to use to show you just what you can do. We're also joined by Di Oliver the clever lady who comes up with all the ideas! The lucky winner will receive some Tando chippie of their own!

So the inspiration...

using a swirl corner

She used a sweet little frame

Sarah frames her image with a lovely swirl

Kat used a chippie daisy

So fab huh?

So remember black and one other colour, obviously if you have a person on your card skin tones are allowed!

So please use good old Mr Linky and link to your entry, new stuff only and NO backdating. We don't have many rules but please stick to them.
