We are Neet and Wendy and we would like to welcome you to our fortnightly challenge, ‘Artful Times’, where we are offering a variety of challenges to inspire you to create in whichever style or medium of crafting you enjoy. You never know, we might even inspire you to create something out of your comfort zone and try out something new.

Yes like all challenge sites we have rules and guidelines. We hope you will read and follow them, we have Oyster Stamps as our sponsor, and of course, a winner and runner up will be chosen each month. We may also have the occasional guest designer.

This time we are asking you to make something with Time on. This can be anything you want, a card, tag, object, anything as long as it is time orientated. Thank you to those you made their inchies, I hope we see lots of you join in this time.

Make 6 inchies out of your received Christmas cards

Happy New year to you all, as we start off the New Year with an easy challenge. We would like you to make 6 inchies out of the Christmas cards you have received, how easy is that ! You can alter them, add bits, or just use them as they are.
Wendy had made hers with a bird theme, and placed them on a dark blue background, with added bits. This was then made into a Christmas card.

Here is another one to give you some more ideas.
