Challenge 2 - Dots & Stripes x

Hey guys, thanks so much for popping by and a massive thank you to the ladies who participated in our 1st challenge last month – I loved looking at your gorgeous work. It is early days and we’re busy working in the background at getting some more exposure on the site so your lovely creations get seen by a few more peeps in the future.

Okay, so I ran the numbers through the Random Number Generator as promised and the winner of the Tic Tac Toe challenge is:


Congratulations hun – I’ll add your card to the winners wall today x If you email me at using verification code FFC1 with your choice of 4 digis I’ll get them over to you. You can grab your winners badge from the sidebar too – any probs let me know x

As the numbers were low and we didn't have to crank up the old generator too much I would like to offer a free digi as a thank you to Mary and Karen for entering our 1st ever challenge too - just email me with the name of the stamp you would like and I'll email it over to you tonight when I get back from work x x

Okay, as you can see from the title above this month’s challenge is Dots & Stripes and you can use dots and/or stripes for your card. The only other requirement for your entry is that a Flat Friends digi is used for your creation (you can see the full range on 'The Digi' tab above) x

A winner will be chosen using the Random Number Generator and announced on the 1st of December (when we launch the next challenge). They will have their choice of 4 free Flat Friends digi’s and their card will feature on our Wall of Fame throughout December. 

Please remember to check out the challenge rules on the tab above where Taylor is waiting to guide you through the formalities in her bossy boots x 

Okay that’s enough from me – I’ll leave you to look at the gorgeous cards our wonderful DT have put together for inspiration. A huge thank you from me to them – stunning work as always x x

Happy Crafting & Digi Hugs x 

Fabi- For my card I have used the cute Tree Hugger, have colored her with Promarkers. The papers are from Polka Doodles, and some Kraft paper from my stash. I inked the sides of my papers with distress ink Walnut Stain:

Kathy - I've used this darling Christmas Camper image and the dots and stripes are in my patterned papers. Such a fun retro image to play with!

NJ - As soon as I saw the Fairytale collection I just knew I wanted to use 'Little Red Riding Hood'. I have used some paper that I already had in my craft stash. I picked this as it had dots all over it and in the flowers. I cut out some flowers to create a border around the image. I added dots to the red robe using a white souffle pen. The stripe is in the rik rak. I wanted the red to be the striking colour!

Patty - For my card I've used Sooty Santa, have colored him with my copics. The papers are from Taylor for Daisyd's and AC and some Brown and White paper from my stash. I inked the the edges of the papers with Toast ink and as a final touch I added Liquid Applique to hat, mitten and chime. Hope you like it as much as I did!!

Sally - Hi this is my card for November Challenge. I love how this has turned out. I used my new Spellbinder die and found the papers on Polkadoodles Pen & Paper Collection 2. I also love this image, it is one of my favourites:

Sarah - I've gone for one of the images from the new release. She is just super cute - love the glasses!! I'm sure you can spot the spots, but the stripes might be a bit more difficult, as I've mostly covered up the paper they are on!!  Hope you like:
