Good Morning Everyone! It's a brand new month and time for a brand new ABAC Challenge to excite your creative muse. Last Sunday we had our last fifth Sunday "Five" Challenge of 2014 - CLICK HERE to see our fabulous designers inspiration and those who played along.

Now we get down to business... it's time for a new challenge today here at Anything But a Card Challenges... let's get ready to play and have some fun! Thanks to all who joined us in our "Anything Goes" Challenge #41. If you missed out on seeing the amazing creations... please CLICK HERE to view week One, CLICK HERE for week 2, and CLICK HERE for week 3.

The new Challenge... is one that that can be expressed in just one word... "CELESTIAL". For Anything But a Card Challenges No. 42 use the prompt "CELESTIAL" to inspire your muse. There are so many definitions of this prompt... we encourage you and your muse to create with your vision of "celestial".

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!

I'm not sure that this little celestial being is quite as angelic as she looks! Find out how quick and easy she was to create over on my BLOG.

Here is another page from a few weeks ago in my Documented life. The prompt for that week was stars. Using what I had around me as with much in storage awaiting our final move. Please visit my BLOG for more details!

What happens when you take bamboo flooring, roofing iron, circuit boards and stars? Well.... I made a Celestial decoration for our verandah! You can find more details on my BLOG. My best wishes to everyone. What a wonderfully creative year we have had at Anything But A Card Challenges. 

When I look up onto the stars and the planets, I always think about something magical, something shining, something that breaks the darkness, something fragile. So for the Celestial challenge as the holidays are closing on us I created an altered light catcher bottle where the light is actually provided by a single candle. Jump over to my BLOG and check out how can you decorate one for yourself as well.

This new challenge prompt is "Celestial". Just what I needed to finally put paint to plaster and complete one of the many crafty items I have had in stock for far too long! One of them happened to be a precast plaster wall hanging of an Angel with stars, perfect for the challenge - and the holiday season. The precast plaster item, various paints and varnish, snow texture medium, an old wreath and red velvet ribbon all came together to create this holiday wreath. Check out my BLOG post to see more details.


We hope our designers have you INSPIRED to take some time to be creative!! We can't wait to see your 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!
