The new Challenge... "Out and About". For Anything But a Card Challenges No. 48 use the great outdoors as your inspiration to challenge your muse; celebrate nature, your favorite place; World Environment Day June 5th; the seasonal colors at your place; or just having fun outdoors. Summer time is here which is everyone's favorite time of year - time for vacations, camping and cookouts! Use your muse to create whatever our prompt "OUT and ABOUT" inspires you to make {remember no cards}. Now it's time to gather all of your creative goodies to come out and play.

Please click on the designers' name to visit their blog. We hope you’ll take a minute to go see their work up close... and as long as you’re there – please leave them a little love!

My out and about project is all about my love of garden secrets. Sculptures, follies, pagodas, ponds mazes, fountains - I love them all. My little garden shrine, something you might find in an English country home garden, features a Green Man, a spirit of nature and a favourite name for many a British pub! Find out all the details over on my BLOG.

I have a small collection of embroidery hoops that I've been collecting from various estate/ yard sales. I decided to use some of my bits of left over fabric to create this fun little wall hanging.  Hop over to my BLOG to check out some details.  

My project for this month takes you to Paris with this mixed-media plaque featuring this Julie Nutting Doll stamp. Please visit my BLOG for more details!

June weddings abound here, many of them are hold outdoors plus flowers are in full bloom. I made a photo frame, with a twist, for a wedding gift. Check out my BLOG to see the fun thing I did to the back and for the complete tutorial.


We hope our designers have you INSPIRED to take some time to be creative!! We can't wait to see your "OUT and ABOUT" creations and we hope that you will join in and share them with us! Stop back next Sunday to see more of our Design Team creations!
