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 65 ARCHES

Well, we certainly did not get many entries for our last challenge.  And we notice entries have been dropping off considerably over the past few weeks.  Not to worry, we will soldier on and this time our challenge is for you to create something with "Arches".  It does not have to be more than one arch, just sounds better when you put the word in plural.

We are honoured to still have Sam as our Guest Designer and it looks as if she has been using Lynne Perrella stamps this time.  Aren't these arches gorgeous.  Wondering how she did them - pop along to her blog and find out.

Neet decided to use rubber stamps in her 'arches' and this is part of what she produced.  If you want to see more pictures of arches and the whole project pop along to her blog:

Wendy made this arch as part of a family arch book.

That is all we have for you this time, you need to visit our blogs to see more detail but before you go can I remind you that you need to read through our Rules and Guidelines to make sure you are eligible for the prize draw.  Just to help you they are below as well as in their usual place at the top of our blog.

*Entries must fully comply with the fortnightly theme (this means your creation must follow the rules of the theme set).
*Please link directly to your entry and not just to your blog (this means only link the address for your post to the challenge and not the general address of your blog).  For instructions on how to do this please see page 'Making a Direct Link'.
*Please ensure you make a link back to this challenge blog in your post (this means you need to include a link to Artful Times Challenge blog when writing up your post).  For instructions on how to do this please see page 'Linking Back'.
*Please write a brief description of how you created your entry and some of the materials used, even if it's only a brief list at the end of your posting, as it's nice to know what was used and how it's been done.
*Please do not back link to previous posts prior to the date of the challenge.
*A maximum of 5 challenges may be combined.
*You may enter the challenge several times as long as each entry is with a different creation.
*We encourage you to visit each other's blogs and leave a comment, even ours, it means a lot!
*If you have 'Word Verification' may we ask that you please turn it off, as this makes commenting easier for everyone, especially with the new blogger words which are difficult to read at times.  The comment moderation seems to be a more successful way of avoiding unwanted comments.
*Link your entry before 17.55 on the following Thursday.
*Any entries which do not follow the above challenge guidelines may not be commented on by the DT and will not be entered into the prize draw.

I wouldn't worry about the diminishing entries, September is a difficult month with back to work and/or school! I think I can manage an Arch...

Oh no, I was planning on entering last week, but I have been ill quite a lot and somehow time slipped away and now it is over!

I will try and get there in time this week.

Nice examples.
