CHALLENGES...

Buonasera,
sono qui per segnalarvi due nuovi challenge: il primo è il sesto challenge di Deep Ocean con il tema "Light Blue" (iniziato martedì 16 agosto, ma lo scrivo oggi visto che ero in vacanza) e quello della Some Odd Girl (fresco fresco di giornata) con il tema "Paper Piecing" ... che dire, non sono bellissimi?! Ispirazioni a go-gò, insomma, soprattutto se passate a vedere ciò che i compenenti dei due DT sono stati capaci di realizzare... Rimarrete a bocca aperta!

Per quanto riguarda Deep Ocean, le regole sono sempre le stesse: card, LO, easel card, segnalibri, shaker card, qualunque cosa sia cartacea è accettata, non c'è limite per l'entrate per singola persona, NON backlinkare (mi raccomandooo!!), scrivere nel post sul proprio blog che si partecipa al challenge e iscriversi tramite InLinkz in questa pagina. Vorrei vedere tanta, tanta partecipazione ai challenge di questo gruppo, purtroppo però mi rendo conto che siamo ancora un po' sconosciuti (siamo anche in estate, va ammesso, quindi molti adesso sono con i piedi in acqua salata e la testa altrove).
Tutti conoscono la tecnica del Paper Piecing (io l'ho usata sul cappuccio e sui pantaloni, ingrandite la foto per vedere meglio), per questo sono sicura che non c'è bisogno che ve la spieghi (ma se mi sbaglio correggetemi eh), quindi senza altro indugio vi presento il challenge iniziato oggi, indetto da Some Odd Girl: il fortunato vincitore si porterà a casa alcuni timbri a scelta (ovviamente marchiati SOG) e come al solito ci sarà l'ardua scelta dei due preferiti. Quindi, forbici alla mano, tagliuzzate un po' di carta e inventatevi un colorato vestito floreale per Mae o Tia, o un divertente paio di pantaloni estivi per Kody! Divertitevi e non risparmiate la vostra fantasia!!

Di seguito le card che ho realizzato per entrambe le occasioni, voglio commenti sinceri e spassionati, e mi fareste un grande, grandissimo piacere se passaste per i blog dei DT member per l
asciare un po' d'amore... un abbraccio forte! Elena

Goodevening,
I'm here for put the spotlight on two new challenges: first is Deep Ocean's sixth challenge with the theme
"Light Blue" (started tuesday 16 August, but i must write about today seen that I was in holiday) and Some Odd Girl's challenge (fresh daily) with the theme "Paper Piecing" ... what can I say, aren't they beautiful?! Inspirations
a go-go, in short, especially if you pass to see what the DT members made... Wow, your mouths will remain open for hours, I swear!
About Deep Ocean, the rules are the same: card, LO, easel card, bookmarks, shaker card, everything that is paper and material is ok, there is no limit for the entries for each person, NOT backlinking (you'd better do not this), write in the post on own blog that the project competes to challenge and enter own name, link (the post, not the blog) and mail trought InLinkz on this page. I would see a lot of entries on this group, but I realize that we are still a little unknown (we are in summer now, too, so a lot of people have the feet under the salt water and are miles away).
Everybody know Paper Piecing tecnique (I used it on cap and pants, enlarge the photo for see details), for this I can’t see the need to talk about (but if I wrong, tell me, ok?!), so without more delay I introduce you the challenge started today, created by Some Odd Girl:The lucky winner will bring at home some stamps of his choice (by SOG) and as usual there will be the hard choice of favourites. So, be ready at scissor point (hope you understand what I want say), cut a little of paper and devise a flower colored dress for Mae o Tia, or a funny summery pants fo Kody or Tobie!! Let's fun and don't economize your fantasy!!

Folow up the cards I made for both the occasions, I want honest and impartial comments, and do me a big, big favour passing by DT member's blogs spreading love and a lots of adorable comments...
a big hug! Elena
