Week 163 - A challenge for the DT

A very Good Morning to you all, it's B here with a new challenge.

The DT had a challenge of their own this week as I sent them all a kit with the same items and as you can see they have come up with a fabulous collections of different projects.

So what is this weeks challenge theme ? Well it's simple..............

........Take Inspiration........

From either the photo of the kit I sent to the DT, or one of the DT's piece of work this week, just remember to tell us in our post which it was.

Our sponsor this week is Digi Doodle who are offering one winner a $10 store gift certificate.

The DT's kit

I have to say I was so excited as the girls uploaded their cards this week and amazed by their super versatility  using the same few basic ingredients, thanks for the great inspiration girls.

Unusually frugal for me, I gutted the DP on the top card to leave sufficient for the second

Debs has cut down the clock to create a tag as well

Emma's sassy image has got a suitably glizy birdcage
No card this week

Helene has punched flowers from the DP waste to carry the colours

Jo has used the clock as a mask, throwing another spin on it's versatility

Nicola's been super frugal and stretched her kit to the inside as well

Have fun with this weeks challenge and good luck to you all.
