Challenge #335 'Christmas Animals'

Good morning fellow crafters, I hope you are all well & are getting in lots of craftyness in between all the Christmas things that are going on!!

Before we get started I'm really excited to welcome a few awesome crafty ladies to our team
Please pop over & welcome them to the team....

I've been married to my best friend and the father of my two children (Natalii 23 and Jack 16) for 26 years

I've been scrapbooking for the last 14 years., and I love everything about craft - the creativity, the friendships and the products
I enjoy working with different mediums and love getting messy

Hi, Deb here.  Coming to you from way down under – Devonport, Tasmania, Australia to be exact!!   Very proud wifey, and mumma to 2 boys (20 and 18) who all still keep me very busy.  Both boys have represented our state and country at athletics.  I have been scrapbooking for about 15 years now and have a huge stash that I desperately need to use.  I am first and foremost a 12x12 traditional scrapper who dabbles in cards and mixed media.  I look forward to joining with the other DT members to inspire you all at My Time to Craft.

Hi, my name is Meena Herale and I am from India. I would like to be a part of your blog.
From childhood I was attracted towards Art and Crafts. I am  bedridden from past 9 years and nothing can stop me by doing crafts. First i took Art and Crafts as a hobby but from 1994 I took it as my profession. I started blogging from February 2016. My style is mixed media, card making, altered art, art journal, decoupage, jewellery, etc.

Please welcome the ladies to the team. We also have another lady joining us but not just yet.

Right now for our 'no layers 'top 3' chosen by Alison

Challenge #334 No Layers

Good morning all you lovely crafters. I hope the weather isn't to bad where you live.

I just want to wish Alison all the best, as she steps down from our DT. Sorry to see you go hun & remember you are always welcome back xx

We had some awesome entries last week, but also quite a few that weren't distressed or coloured using distress inks. So sadly we had to eliminate a few of the entries.

Out of the entries that did fit the theme Caz managed to get her choices down to three....I'm so glad it wasn't my week to choose!
Here's Caz's 'distress it' Top 3 in no particular order.....

Awesome creations, don't forget to snag your blog badge from the sidebar xx

Challenge #333 Distress It!

Good morning & welcome  to My Time To Craft. 

We are looking for a few new members to join in with our fortnightly fun.

You will have your own number to comment on.
That really is about it, oh its a 6 month term..Jan - June 2017
The only other thing is you need to have a blog

We are a friendly bunch of ladies, there is no stress no worries, just crafting.
I also understand, life gets in the way & deadlines can't be met all of the time. I am pretty laid back about that kind of thing as long as you let me know!
You don't have to have been on a DT before to enter. 
If this sounds like something you would like to do
Please email me on
