CYDA Guest Design Project.

I'm not really sure when I started blogging, I guess it would have been about a year ago. One of the first challenge blogs that inspired me to join this online world was Magical Crafts. I would look forward to seeing the DT's work every other week. Well Magical Crafts is gone now but most of the DT combined forces and created Craft Your Days Away and now here I am being a Guest Designer for a challenge!! I couldn't be more thrilled!!
The challenge is BLACK AND WHITE!!
A fun theme but oh so difficult for me. Those of you familiar with my posts know I don't work well without colour and lots of it but I actually like what I came up with this time. I made a little gift box.

The Simply Thanks stamp is a freebie I got from Stampin' Up. I had ordered an embossing folder from them but it took so long to come in (on backorder) that when I finally got it they added this stamp at no charge. Totally worth it. And the tree silhouette is a Cricut cut. I know it looks like a stamp in the pics but it's not.

So please play along with your black and white creations at Craft Your Days Away. This challenge runs for 2 weeks. There will be 1 randomly chosen winner, A Top 3, and the next GDT spot all up for grabs!!
On an unrelated note.... I made a card the other night that was likely to be the most disgusting card EVER created by ANYONE. It was so bad it was shocking! I didn't take any pics cus if I showed it to you, you'd have nightmares.

Also for these challenges -
4 Crafty Chicks. STITCHING.
The Rubber Cafe. STITCHING.
Creative Craft. THANK YOU.

Thanks for stopping by,
