Time Out ... Guest Designer!!

Exciting times ... win a challenge and be asked to Guest Design for a future challenge!  No hesitation from me this time in saying yes to Sandie, at TIME OUT Challenges, when I was invited to design for this week's challenge.  However, I really need to learn to wait until I know what the theme is before jumping in ... anyway here goes!

This week is an 'Inspired by words' challenge and the words are:

'A woman is like a teabag - you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water'  by Eleanor Roosevelt

I decided to go with an encouraging quote as the focal point for my card to encourage strength and belief:

I've been using my gel plate to create background papers and die cut a section from one of my prints to create this panel and also die cut the butterfly from the same paper.

Now it's your turn to take TIME OUT and join the challenge ... you need to get your skates on as this week the challenge is only for one week ... so no time for procrastinating but enough time to create!



  1. We are so pleased to have you guest designing for us this week and this card is perfect. I love the background pink and that you cut out the butterfly in this also. The bold background really works with the soft pink. Thanks for joining us this week

  2. Great color palette for a girly card and that sentiment is so lovely! Thanks so much for being our GD!

  3. Love this encouraging card. The background design of your focal point is stunning. Thanks for being our guest designer this week at Time Out.

  5. Wow Elaine, that background you created is gorgeous and love how you die-cut the butterfly but kept it in place. Gorgeous card and I'm so excited to have you with us for this challenge!!

  6. How lovely, Elaine ... what a gorgeous combination ... soft pink panel and delicate butterfly ... with that bold black background and fab sentiment focal point ... brilliant! Delighted to have you guest designing with us at Time Out this week! Anita :)
