Moving Along With The Times (DT Card) - 'Step Back in Time' Challenge

Hi all, It's Thursday and so time for another Challenge over at

This week our lovely boss Hazel is our hostess and she has chosen the fab theme of ....

'Step Back in Time'

So, if you are itching to get back crafting again after all the festivities, why not have some fun and join in the Challenge. So we would like to see cards that are music/retro related. You have plenty of time as this week's challenge is running for 2 weeks again and so you have until 8pm GMT on 11th January 2012 to enter! 

Our sponsor this week are  Digi My World.

who have very generously given us some gorgeous pre-coloured image sets to play with. So an easy peasy week for us this week! Thanks Hazel !! I chose the wonderful Heidi who is a 60s 'Groovy Baby' and takes us back to the Sixties. Very Austin Powers! 

When I saw the image I thought of shiny vinyls and remembered that I had some glossy lime green card blanks from The Works. So then just a case of printing out the image set from Digi My World. You can resize all the images to your hearts desire and arrange them on one sheet to print out. It was really easy and all the images from Digi My World print out really nicely! Perfect for a really quick card make.

Pop on over to MAWTT Website for more details of the challenge and prize and to take a look at the rest of the team's creations - they are all fab and groovy this week! and don't forget to check whether you were a winner in last fortnight's challenge! 

Also we have a Fab new member on our Team - Sandra! So hope you will pop over, say hello and make her feel very welcome!

My mum became unwell and had to be taken into hospital yesterday, so please forgive if I don't get around to all your Blogs. I hope to catch up with you all very soon! 

I know there are some nasty viruses doing the rounds and so hope you are all keeping as well as possible!!
Love n Hugs
Sue xx

Edit: My daughter has just phoned from hospital to say my mum is looking a lot better today. They are still running tests but they said it could be diverticulosis. I am just glad that she sounds a lot better - she was SO ill yesterday bless her. Thanks for all your kind comments. I am fine but shattered!!! it's all the worrying and waiting. Will speak to you all very soon!!

Love Sue xx
