Flip-Flop, or Swing!

Thank you for sharing all your wonderfully Bejewelled Creations with us last week - all those lovely Sparklers looked fantastic and we really enjoyed visiting your blogs to see then.

Now, this week it should be Jo's turn to set the challenge, but disaster struck and a power surge knocked out both of their computers - what a nightmare. Hopefully she'll be using the time to think up some cunning dares to bamboozle us with and will be back here where she belongs really soon. For now though, Sue has stepped into the breach and come up with a little card-making task for us.
"I would like you to make a 'Flip Flop' card........, no, not the sort of flip-flop that you wear on your feet but a card where the centre flips over to reveal an image or sentiment on the other side."
We're not so mean as to leave you without some help, so here are some links where you'll find templates and ideas to get you started
There's a template on the Stampington site HERE
And some template with different shaped centres on Time for Crafting.
Or maybe you'll like THIS great video on You Tube that uses your Cuttlebug and Nestabilities.

Last week we said a fond farewell to our lovely July Guest Designer Gail. It was great to have her working with us and we really enjoyed seeing her cards on the DCM blog - Thank you, Gail.

This month we have not just one, but two Guests on the Design Team and they both create absolutely stunning works of art. What a Sizzling Summer (well for us on this side of the world, anyway!) Special Treat for August - you're going to love these girls!

From Norway we'd like to welcome Anne-Kristine and from the UK please say "hello" to Paula
Click on their names to visit their blogs - and be prepared to see some wonderful crafting!

Please let us know where we can see your Flip-Flop, aka Swing card by coming back and leaving a message

Here are what the Design Team have been making this week

These are fabulous samples, I already told Kathy she made it hard and the rest of you are just as talented. I'll enter and keep practicing. Thanks for letting all of us play along.
