Time Out Challenge #38

A very Happy Friday Eve to you all,

This week at Time Out Challenges we have our 'Home Sweet Home' challenge based on a photo to inspire you.

Here is our photo:

I love this photo and found it hard to get past the blue stripes but there is so much more here to inspire you-glasses, anchors, pops of red, wood grain, rope and I am sure you can pick out a lot more.

I went with the blue stripes and pops of red. I made this card for my hubby:

I also got the idea of the colour blocks from this card by Nonni. I loved her use of the strong blocks of colour and I am happy to say that this card arrived for me a few days after it inspired me to make my card today!

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Anni. Anni is a very talented and inspiring crafter, take some time out to visit her blog here

Our DT have made some amazing cards based on this photo-take a look here and then kick back and take some TIME OUT to craft and join in the fun x
