We are Neet and Wendy and we would like to welcome you to our fortnightly challenge, ‘Artful Times’, where we are offering a variety of challenges to inspire you to create in whichever style or medium of crafting you enjoy. You never know, we might even inspire you to create something out of your comfort zone and try out something new.

Yes like all challenge sites we have rules and guidelines. We hope you will read and follow them, we have Oyster Stamps as our sponsor, and of course, a winner and runner up will be chosen each month. We may also have the occasional guest designer.

A Trip to Europe on a Tag

First of all can I remind you that we do have RULES and I would urge you to read them as we have had some super entries that we would maybe have liked to have made into "winners" but because they did not follow the rules we couldn't.  Just spare a minute or two to read them please - then you can be in with a chance to win a prize from our Sponsors, Graham and Tracey at Oyster Stamps.

It is the holiday season, the time we all used to have "Annual Wakes Week", do you remember those (showing my age here)?  Nowadays people go off at different times but owing to children not being taken out of school most people have an annual holiday July/August time.

Well, the weather has been atrocious, worse June in 100 years or so they say, July is not that much better as yet so with that in mind I thought we should all venture overseas and visit somewhere in Europe.  I've also tied you into a "tag" for this Challenge, hope you don't mind.

Here's what the team have made

Sam went all Red, white and blue with her Pan Pastels for her trip to France's capital city.

Von had a little tour and took in some of the sights of France, Italy and the Netherlands.

And I (Neet) joined Sam in Gay Paree with a vista of the city.

I wonder where you will take us?  We are all looking forward to having a journey with you, afterall, if this weather does not buck up we need something to cheer us.  Hope to see you joining in, we have had some super entries in the past and we have over 100 followers now.  Thank you one and all.

Thank you so much for reminding to read the rules ... I only did that yesterday - or the day before? - and added a bit of making (Neet already tried to push me in the right direction and I didn't notice ... sheep).
Next time I know :-/ :-)

Interesting challenge again, there's already something beginning to take shape in my thoughts ...
Wonderful examples of the DT-Ladies!
Best, Suzanne
