I think the challenge will be:
to use the background colouring technique of applying colour to craft sheet, misting and swooshing
to use an image of a house
to use a die cut or punch and then dry emboss it (rather than embossing with powder)

Does this seem ok to people?

Yes, with you so far.

swooshing - perhaps I made this up, you know the sort of twisty turn you give the card once it's in the sptized inks so they mix up a bit  Wink

Thought it would be best to post pictures of our challenges under each month, if that is ok with every one. i wanted to try this one to make sure the 3 elements work ok.
i have gone for a 4x4 format, which may be a challenge in itself, and have done a cover too. Had a lovely time doing this today.

I didn't know there were fat pages, only heard of fat quarters of fabric  Laughing  Must be the first new thing I've learnt in 2011

Vonny that looks great!  Love the size too, I think I might give that a go too.  It looks very cute!  And sometimes it is quite good to force yourself to do something a bit smaller.

PS  Hadn't heard of twinchies!

Vonny your pages are gorgeous and the size is good too Laughing

Think I might stick with the tag shape though as I didn't get to do the Christmas ones Laughing

An altered item ... now that sounds a good idea. I am going to try to challenge myself with my crafting this year and I have not done much(any apart from AC weekends) altering, so this would be a good challenge.
