A new challenge for September

Hi Everyone, August saw a great month for Country View Challenges with some fabulous entries with our Summertime theme, but we move into the autumn with a great new title from the lovely Nikki which is -
NUMBERS
I have to say I love this theme as there are so many ways to include numbers on your projects and the fabulous Design Team have created some great samples to give you some ideas and to inspire and encourage you to join in. At the end of the month one lucky person will be chosen for the winning voucher worth £20 to spend at Country View Crafts webshop. Scroll through to see some fabulous ideas.

This is a card made for my Grandaughter's 7th birthday...
Details from my blog



I am sure we would all love to create 365! I decided to use up some of my (long ago purchased) grey board letters for this tag. I am loving the combination of Blueprint and Twisted Citron Distress Ink so do please hop on over to my blog if you want to see how I used them on my tag and the letters.



For my first make I have used all sorts of numbers to create a collage style background for my gorgeous three amigos, who seem full of fun and mischief. I love playing with numbers especially odd ones and they are always creeping into my makes.. this one was inspired by the number 3 initially for these cheeky chaps! For all the details please hop to here . trace  x



I love numbers and so this new challenge is perfect for me! I chose to put stencilled numbers in the background and make the stamped figure hold one of them. I had a good tidy of my Studio the other day and found my Demo machine so used that for the sentiment! As always, there's more on my blog. Gabrielle x


For my first creation this month I went with my first Christmas card of the season. I wanted to use the new snowflakes layering stencil. For all the details please pay a visit to Addicted to Art today.



There are so many numbers on this tag that I'm not sure you can count them!  They're there in the stamping, in the stencilled crackle, in the numerical ephemera, on the clock face.  Never mind counting them though... as long as you make today count.  Do come over to Words and Pictures if you'd like to see more.

Wow September already, how did that happen. For my first piece I've gone spookily cute, and I'm asking that age old question, 'does my bum look big in this'?

As always full details can be found here on my blog.


For the September Challenge - Numbers - I made two banners for my nephews. Since I always like to create something useful I will give them as a birthday decoration. I put their birth years and their ages  because it's all about numbers :-)

If you would like to make something similar as a birthday decoration, please visit my blog to see my tutorial. Thank you! Monika

Big Hugs! Rachel x


Hi everyone I'm sharing a small tag holder which I created to hold 4/5 tags. The plan is to make a few of these so that I can tidy my tags. As these will then be numbered I thought it was perfect for the new Challenge Theme which our very talented Nikki chose for us.

                                                For all the details please visit my blog
                                                             Take care Hugs Debs 


For Nikki's fabulous challenge theme I have made a set of antique French number plaques using DecoArt products. I describe the process for the plaques and making this very special picture frame at Bumblebees and Butterflies.

We look forward to seeing your submitted entries and we are sure you will enjoy taking up the challenge.

hugs Brenda and the CVC Team
