New Linky Party - Make It Monday



Oh dear, the weather continues to be wet and horrible here. They are predicting an early start to our tropical wet season, oh joy, oh fun.

There is an upside to this dreary weather though and that is it's perfect for blog surfing. Wow, does the time ever vanish when you are lost in blog world viewing all the marvelous creativity that is out there!

One of my blogging buddies and fellow Paper Cubed Design Team member Lorrinda from Isn't That Sweet
posted a ingenious idea on her blog on Saturday. She found herself without the exact colour of Flower Soft she required to finish a totally awesome card she was working on and managed to come up with an alternative for it from scraps she had on hand.

Here is Lorrinda's card

Gorgeous right?!

Can you guess which tree is not made using Flower Soft? I certainly couldn't.

Lorrinda, being the clever little chicken that she is, came up with an alternative she calls Fuzzy Fluff.

Check out the post on her blog here to see just how she did it.

Now coming across fabulous ideas like this one has to be one of the things I love most about blog surfing. There is just so much creativity and inspiration to be found out there.

So I decided that I would like to create a weekly Linky Party where you can all link up your fabulous creations to share with everyone.

Now it's not a challenge, no theme to follow or anything.  Just link up your creation, tips or tutorials, what ever it may be at the top of my blog so that others can come and visit your blog.

I have created a Linky Party button that you can grab from my sidebar if you like.

Make sure that you link up using a direct link to the particular post not just your blog and if you could please  link back here so that others can find it too.

I will be picking my favourites from those that are linked up to feature on my blog the following week. Maybe I will even get around to creating a "I was featured on" button too!!

Thanks for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing your creations.

Michelle :-)

What a pretty card that is... I must visit that blog and learn how to do that.

What a great idea to start a weekly linky party with no stress of a challenge.

Hope your son is getting better. Give him a flying kiss from me.

Gorgeous card, i guessed the white tree - but it was the green tree! What a unique way. Fab card. Thank you for sharing this tip for fuzzy fluff.

Lorrinda said...

Oh wow, Michelle! I am beyond flattered. I really don't know what to say....

This is such a great idea, to have a linky party without having to complete a challenge. Let the creativity shine!

I can't wait to see what everyone shares! This is such a great way to blog hop and discover new places that I might not find otherwise.
How clever of you!
I've got a Linky Party invite in my sidebar for you.

Thanks so much!
Hugs from the other side of the world,
