Challenge #198 - Breast Cancer Awareness

 Hello friends of Time Out!

The next fortnight we are focusing on Breast Cancer Awareness.

Our challenge is for you to make a friendship and/or encouragement card.
The optional twist is to use Pink in your card. 


We take breast cancer awareness very seriously. Early detection of Breast Cancer is the key and it is advised to do a self exam-check every month. You can check out this link for more info on self exams or just more information about Breast Cancer in general -
 here. 
Please do pass this information to friends and go do that self exam!

This challenge is sponsored by the incredible and very generous CAS-ual Fridays Stamps! If you use our twist of pink you could win a $25 voucher to their amazing store. Our design team will also vote for another winner who gets to join us as guest designer in a future challenge. 



Our Guest Designer is Natasa of NatsPaperWorld and winner of Time Out Challenge #195. We are delighted to have Natasa designing with us. Treat yourself to a stroll through her blog. You will be so inspired. Her coloring skills are amazing!

Here are a few words from Natasa about her love of paper crafting:

"Hello! I'm Natasa and I'm from Slovenia. I've always been amazed by various handmade items and people's creativity and when I bought my first couple of stamps at the local craft shop I was immediately hooked on paper crafting. It's been about 6-7 years now and over the years the passion even grew. Since then I have developed new skills and I always like to try new techniques. Paper crafting gives me so much. It's a time for myself, when I can relax, let my imagination go wild and create cards for my friends. I enjoy the process of turning ordinary paper into something heartfelt or giving life to an image by coloring it. I especially love to color with alcohol markers and lately I'm also practicing coloring with watercolors and colored pencils. "

Here is Natasa's card:

Challenge #196 - Brave

 Hello Crafters....it's time for another new challenge at Time Out!


We are back with a new challenge and one that is just a bit different - Brave
There are so many ways you can be brave, from starting a new job, going to a new school, moving to a new neighborhood, so many possibilities and we can't wait to see what inspires you!

Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is Funky Fossil Designs

winner gets £15 gv British Sterling
 



Our guest designer for this challenge is Rahmat Gouse of Cards And Cooking Corner and winner of Time Out Challenge #193. She is a very talented card artist, and her floral watercoloring is swoon-worthy! Check out her blog, and you will see what I mean.

Here are a few words from Rahmat about her background and her crafting:

"I am originally from India. I have been globe trotting for almost a decade and half, and I live in Macau. I am wife to a hotelier, mother to 2 university kids. A teacher by profession, currently not teaching. I do substitute and volunteer teaching from time to time.

I started serious card making only in 2014, and also started my current blog back then. I love CAS mostly, but I love trying out different techniques. I love playing with stamps, and I always look for creative out of box ways to use, and showcase the stamps. For past year and half I have been hooked to coloring mostly flowers and bubbles. I also enjoy illustrating flowers nowadays. 

Other than card making, I love cooking, reading, traveling and photography."

This is Rahmat's wonderful make for our challenge:


 Here is some inspiration from our design team:
