Text Message

We do hope you enjoyed playing with your beads and sequins this last week - it was certainly inspiring to see all the ideas you came up with for using them, thank you so much for sharing them with us. span>

Well, this week the Design Team have come up with this idea for you to play with, we hope you'll enjoy it.
TEXT...
definition... the main body of matter in a book or manuscript. the actual wording of anything written or printed, short passage of scripture, etc
We'd like you to somehow incorporate text into your cards this week - not just one word.. but a portion of TEXT... like a poem, or newspaper print, Caligraphy, Even rip up an old text book and use some of the paper from it, there are masses of possibilities here, so let your imaginations run riot and let us see you texting to your heart's content!

Here are some cards from the Design Team to get you thinking. We just know you're going to come up with some fabby cards for this one - we can't wait to see them! Don't forget to come back and leave us a message when you're ready to share your words of wisdom with the world.....
