A new stampin' challenge for me!

TGIF Throwdown Challenge August 2015

Do you like a challenge? Well if you do I suggest you pop over the TGIF Throwdown challenge.  You have a month to enter, but the rules are different to most challenges you'll come across because it's a bit like going shopping and who doesn't like to shop!  You have to use some of the items in the shopping basket to make your card and there are also some staples in the pantry that you can use to coordinate with your basket items, but if it isn't in the basket or the pantry you just can't use it!

The August challenge is detailed on their blog, but essentially the basket items consist of a choice of two embossing folders, calypso coral ink, pear pizzazz or mint macaron ink, silver glimmer paper, pool party card stock and the stamp set Flower Patch.  You have to use a least four of the basket items and as I don't have either of the embossing folders I've used all the other ingredients to 'bake' my 'cake' LOL!

Check out the challenge as they are adding inspiration all month and of course there will be other folk up for a challenge like me for you to browse.

More from me soon. Zx
