Challenge #100

Hi There,

Happy New Year to you All,

We hope 2018 brings you all Health, Happiness and lots of crafty fun!

Here at Time Out we are celebrating our 100th challenge!

Yes, we made it to 100!

And to celebrate we decided to introduce a new challenge to replace our CASE challenge.

We will be calling this challenge:

We challenge you to be......

We then give you a single word and challenge you to create a project focusing on this word. You can interpret the word anyway you want.

And here it is for our 100th Challenge:

What are you 'Thankful' for? Or what makes you feel 'Thankful'?
Perhaps it is all your crafty friends, your Time Out to craft, your Family, all the lovely gifts you got for Christmas and the list go on! We know you are all thankful for many different things.

We would love to see what it is you are thankful for at the beginning of this New Year and can't wait to see what you create.

This challenge is sponsored by the fabulous store Verve

The winner of this challenge will get to choose a stamp set of their choice from their amazing store!

Julee the owner and designer of Verve will be joining us for this challenge. Her blog Poetic Artistry is full of creative projects. We urge you to visit it and guarantee you will come back ready to get crafty!

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very creative Bobby.
