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.

Challenge 56 - Owls - include an Owl in your Project

Hello Crafters.
 Chrissie here this time and welcome to a new challenge at Artful Times.

Wonderful entries for the Mail Art though some weren't decorated envelopes which Neet had asked for so best to read the posts to see just what is wanted for the challenges. I had never done any Mail Art before so wasn't sure what was expected but I did enjoy doing it

I have chosen Owls. They seem to have become very fashionable with crafters of all kinds and it will be lovely to see what you can think up for the challenge. You can make anything you like so have lots of fun creating.

Just to say that this will be my last DT post for Artful Times as I am hoping to explore other things. It has been great joining in here as a DT member and I thank the others on the team for our time together. I will be doing  the challenges and entering for the fun of it as there is always something new to explore.

Here is what we all made.

Neet made these beautiful mini earrings

Chrissie made a card with a secret inside

Von made this

and Wendy did a Deco page

Can't wait to see what you make.

Remember there is a prize of a £10 gift voucher
(excludes Sale items and does not include mailing costs)
for one lucky winner each month (covers two challenges)
so remember "you have to be in it to win it".

Have fun everyone


ps a note from Neet: Just to say 'Thank You' to Chrissie for some stunning DT pieces during her short stay with us.  I will always remember the blue hat you made Chrissie, it has to be my favourite amongst the many.

And now another 'Thank You' for Von who is also leaving us.  Von and I first started this blog way back with Sam on the 30th March 2012.  I still have the tag I made for the launch.  Von has made some changes in what she laughingly refers to as her "RL" and I know that one of the big RL's involves crafting and she loves it.  So Von, may I wish you all the best in your RL and may the job go from strength to strength.
