challenges, new challenge blog, world card making day and TMTA

I emailed some of you letting you know that I have decided to have a one off C6 Altered Envelope challenge on 'The Papergirls' blog for Tuesday Oct 7th. The idea is to alter an envelope (C6 size.approx.... in inches.... 6.25 x 4.5'' or 16cm x 11.25cm..approx...) using whatever media you wish it stamps paint, inks, collage.. you choose... however you MUST use 'a picture' recycled from either a newspaper, magazine a catalogue etc... other than that you can add whatever else you please.
Here is one I did for Theme Thursday 'numbers' challenge

I enjoyed it so much I am holding a challenge... If you Email me ( a picture of your work by midnight Monday Oct 6th UK time I will load it onto the papergirls blog (anonymously) and we will have a voting poll open to vote for your favourite entry. 'Tanda Stamps' are sponsoring this challenge with one of their new Christmas stamps for the winner. Do hope that you can join me.
Yesterday I found a brand new challenge blog called 'Pretty Paper Hearts' now then we all love paper and we all seem to love hearts so why not pop along and take a look over HERE
