Challenge entry by email from Gail Tasker:

Our bi-monthly 'June' CI Challenge starts today and the theme has kindly been chosen by Daniele. We hope you are all itching to have a go and join in as we would like to see loads of lovely entries please.  The only rule is that you must use at least one Crafty Individuals product in your project, and you need to be linked in by midnight on 25th June this time.  Daniele will then choose 5 'winners' who will be able to pick a CI stamp of their choice as a prize.

The topic this time is 'A Summer's Ball', and is open to your own interpretation - the options available to you are pretty limitless really, as you will see from the 'inspirational' project pieces sent over by the team.  I will display these over my next few posts, staring tonight.



To enter this month's Crafty Individuals Challenge please put together your project, following the subject material outlined above (your project should include at least one Crafty Individuals product please), then:

Post your Challenge project on your blog, before the 25th of the month, and include a link back to this blog.

Leave a link in the URL box to take us directly to your Challenge project, etc. - which will then appear here on this blog as a thumbnail image - so we can all see your wonderful work.

Towards the end of the month the Challenge leader will set about choosing five lucky participants, each of whom will win a CI rubber stamp of their choice.

Go for it and enjoy the challenge x


Now I have some projects based on 'A Summer's Ball' theme to start the creative process going, and I will begin with Daniele's own piece which is an adorable, beautifully crafted fan:

And of course every lady attending the ball also needs a little purse, as well as a fan, to keep her rouge and powder in.  This is a very pretty purse by Paula -

And as well as a fan and a purse a lady also needs a gift bag for the Pimms!!!  This is my gift bag -

And lastly this evening I have a gorgeous hanging by Helen to adorn the walls:

Lovely ladies!

Back soon with more - so get your thinking caps on and do play along!

p.s.  Must also just mention that I was very kindly asked by Sarah Engels-Greer to be her June calendar gal - and Sarah would be delighted I'm sure if you would go and pay her blog a visit.  As well as some info on yours truly, Sarah has some other fabulous works of art on display.

p.p.s. Have a lovely Jubilee weekend all.  Apparently there are 1500 miles of bunting on display across the UK right now!

Hi Jean, Is there something wrong with the link on the side bar to Daniele's blog?? I can't seem to get it to work. The one in the post works. Just thought I would mention it. Hope you dont mind.
