Sunday Challenge- Holy Guacamole!!!

Oh my goodness where does time go too! I'm still enjoying looking at all the floral cards and now it's time for another challenge! Well, we like to keep you nice and busy (evil laugh).

So let the challenge commence. This week I want to see you making holes in your projects (no pin pricks, they don't count! (evil laugh again). The holes can be in the actual card or on an element of your card, like mesh or netting. Oh and of course it goes without saying, you have to use a Charmed download too! So is this challenging enough for you? Let me offer you some inspiration.......


I layered the coloured background behind the characters and added the text before printing out twice. I made the card then cut out and added the decoupaged elements before punching lots of holes for stars with my big bite. The photo doesn't do the stars justice really, when you hold it up to the light they shine really nicely.


Karen used one big hole in the top left and then of course the mesh is very holy too. Isn't it tweet!


I love how Karen has made the inside of the card just as fabulous as the outside.

Nicola used a washing tablet bag to create the net for this one -So clever!


Here Nicola uses another image from the sports George collection. This time the holes are a rather nifty shoe lace arrangement at the top. I LOVE this card.

Take a look at this one! What a fabulous idea! I think you'll agree, this is purrfect!

Last but by no means least we have this exotic creation from Juliet, using Hula Dottie. Gorgeous ay?

Do you see the clever flap? it opens up to reveal....

What a stunner! Juliet has used K&Co Urban & Seaglass papers, a Prima flower for 'Hula Dottie's' skirt and added micro-beads to her clothes and shoes. The holes are in the Urban cardstock and in the spine of the card to thread the raffia through.

All products mentioned including the embossing folders and the big bite are available from Charmed Cards and Crafts - the same place as the downloads so you can fill your basket and purchase the downloads all in one speedy transaction, just click the button!

OMG your samples are totally amazing, the stars, the way the robin dottie shows through from the inside, that net is so cool, always knew those nets had a better use!, the door hanger is great and hula dottie looks wonderful that pattern is so delicate. Thank you ladies, great challenge, off to get my thinking cap on.
