Punctuate like a Pro!

Hi Peeps
A sunrise in Hobart last week:



Gotta love those early morning people for sharing with us this beauty!

The current challenge for March is to add punctuation to your work and the TWIST is to be amusing if possible. This opens many possibilities but just remember - please, no stamps! We all know that leaving out a comma (especially an inverted one) can bring the punctuation squad down on us like a ton of bricks. This probably illustrates why:


So, which are you?

If you are wondering what punctuation signs are suitable:


This might help.

I find my most used sign - apart from the comma - is the exclamation mark.
I think I am addicted to it's use!

Yes, there is a prize (random draw)



Here is some more inspiration to assist your imaginations:







(Did Grandma make the cake? Perhaps she is in it!)




Lot's of different ways the team have used Punctuation Signs here and all are "tongue in cheek" amusing.
So - let's see what you can make

Week Two for March and Winners for February

Happy St Patricks Day to those who observe this holiday and happy Labour Day Long Weekend for my Australian readers - I hope you had a lovely weekend.


Wow, we had a great list of entries for February, proving that the 'Anything Goes' challenges are popular. We also had to disqualify some as they used stamps - please read the rules carefully before entering. They are fairly simple.

Now to announce the winner of the first random number draw prize for 2017



Congratulations Chris

Ladies, there is no prize but our congratulations on being chosen and we hope to see you back soon!

The second challenge in 2017 need's a bit more careful thought but can be easily got around
Remember, the twist is up to you but if you can - go for it!

Challenge #66: Use a Punctuation sign in your work somewhere

This means you need to Use a Punctuation Sign somewhere in your work with the TWIST being to be amusing as well -  if possible!

The Prize
Random Number Draw

The magazine has an embossing folder and a die with it

Before I show you what the Design Team has come up with, let me congratulate you all on your entries for February. What a task we have been set to come up with the DT Favorite! We will let you know about the outcome next Monday.

Just a reminder though - several people did not read the rule about 

NO STAMPS PLEASE TO BE USED IN YOUR WORK

This means I have had to contact them and sort it out and it is always an awkward situation, as we all love our own work and feel protective of it. Let me assure you that it is not the caliber of the work but the fact that  our rules do not permit you to use a digital stamp, or a rubber or clear stamp in your work for our challenges. 

The DT have come up with some excellent inspiration for you to illustrate how you can Use Punctuation in your project........

As you can see, it is quite easy to add punctuation - through a scrap page or a card or tags or a mixed media item. Let your imagination soar!
