Hi Everyone
We are excited to bring you whimsy special monthly challenges every third Wednesday of the month. We are hoping to share some new ideas and creativity. And we can't wait to see what you do with these fun challenges!

This first challenge is going to be a tutorial. Recently, Denise found a cute gift card holder challenge on Double Dutch challenges and thought it would be fun to create a tutorial to show how simple this craft idea really is. You can whip one up in a matter of a few minutes.

Our Gift Card Holder Challenge will run from now until 12 noon EST on Tuesday, September 15th. You can simply join in by making your gift card holder and leaving your comment on the challenge blog before the 15th. We will have one random winner from our monthly challenge participants that will be announced on Tuesday afternoon sometime. One lucky participant will receive 2 FREE Whimsy Stamps of her choice (from in stock items) as well as a packet of BasicGrey brads! Please remember this prize is for our Monthly Challenge, not the weekly ones.

You can find the tutorial Here
Supplies:Dp DCWV the Green Stack

*********************


last week I was approached by a company called photo paper direct and asked if i would review a couple of there products for them,I was sent 2 different packs of pre-scored cards one was glossy and the other matt. At first i wasn't sure what to do with these but decided to try something new to me,digital cards,First i downloaded a gorgeous christmas pack from Designer Digitals and set about designing a christmas card once I was happy with my design I printed onto the glossy cardstock and I must say I was pleasantly surprised with the beautiful effect and the quality this cardstock gives you + it was dry in an instant.
My daughter hannah has already asked if all her xmas cards can be made like this as she loved the glossy effect.



My second project was an Image pouch which i printed onto the matt cardstock again the quality was fabulous
