how time flies, it’s Wednesday again and time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More, Challenge #60 – Anything Goes!!!
I know this will be very popular as you can allow your inspiration to roam freely and craft whatever you fancy.

The winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to spend at their online store. Pop over to the shop and have a look what fabulous images $20 can buy you …
For this week’s DT piece I have decided to do something different … and I have been thinking ‘handmade presents’ … they always come in handy, especially as nobody can deny that we are a sort of coming up to Christmas.
I have used a Nicecrane image sheet, a collection of 8 pre-coloured images. Here it is, my DT piece for this week:
I made a little story book as a keepsake using the Punky Dunk And The Gold Fish Set.
Below is a little overview of most of the book’s pages. I arranged the images in a way that they would tell a little story and kept the embellishments to a minimum to let the story shine through. As I was planning this project, a couple of friends came to mind, who are cat lovers and recently lost their great feline companion …
The tag on this first page fits in behind the little poem
For the background I used stamps and pretty paper. I also added my own titles which I made up on my computer.
My embellishments are made up of die-cut shapes, pearls and candi.
I also left some space to add a personal message or two …
