Who won the Prize this time?

Yes, it's the time to tell you who the winner of the random number prize is for last month and to reveal the winner of the DT Favorite - but in reality they are all our favorites you know. It is so hard to choose some times. Before then, here is another of those pretty sunrises for you. Notice it is in the primary colours that nature is at its best.


A pretty pink sunrise had the sky and the river blushing near Evandale. What a stunning morning!

#74 It's All about the Cake - TWIST Primary Colours

Hello Peeps - and to the latest Peeps -welcome!

How has life been in your crafting world? Mine has been a bit slow but it's mostly my own fault. Too lazy to get out of my own way at times, that's me. However, deep breath and get on with things - that's my newest resolution! Wonder how long that will last?

We ar planning a little get-away soon: just a few days -and we will be heading to a small seaside town called St Helens. 


A beautiful scene from Amanda at St Helens, on Tassie’s north-east coast, who says:

Feeling like a child again exploring the orange lichen covered rocks around the Bay of Fires 🔎🔥


Did you notice that the colours of the rocks, sea and lichen are all variants on the primary colours?

RED, BLUE and YELLOW

Guess what?  This month's challenge is:
 It's all about the cake...
TWIST use mainly the primary colours 

RED, YELLOW and BLUE!


This is the random number prize - an embossing folder


This is NOT as difficult as it looks!
There are many variants on the reds, blues and yellows of our world.
Just don't do what I did when making my first piece, and get confused with what were primary colours and used green instead of blue! A hasty change was needed!!!




Wynn has added primary colours in her cake banner but her other colours are variants on the basic three.
We just want to see you concentrate on those

If you can manage that and a cake then you are excellent!

Remember, it does not have to be a card and NO STAMPS please

In saying that my first one is a Christmas Card.......with a cake!!

New Challenge next week, remember

he Peeps - remember we work from the first Monday of a new month. The old challenge has closed but the new one does not begin until the 6th November.

Until then, happy crafting and here is a photo to keep you interested.


Now here's a claim to fame - located in gorgeous Richmond, in the Coal Valley, this is Australia's oldest stone span bridge! It was built by convicts in the 1820's, is heritage listed and is the most photographed landmark in the town. Not hard to understand why is it? That said, the township of Richmond has more than 50 Georgian buildings, many converted into cafes and shops, and is also home to the oldest gaol in Australia, the Richmond Gaol. Definitely worth a look-see 👀 and it's only 30 minutes from Hobart.

‘Dancing Penguin’

This gorgeous King Penguin was so happy to reach the beautiful beach at Fortescue Bay 🐧🌊🐧 on the Tasman Pensinsula.

One of the best campsites in Tassie, located down a 12km bush road, Fortescue is the destination for camping, bushwalking, picnicking, swimming, fishing and being up close and personal with our unique wildlife. Sea kayaking and canoeing around the rugged cliffs of Tasman National Park is also an unforgettable experience.

Fortescue has 40 campsites plus a shower block, toilets and barbeques.

Thanks to Ian Jeanneret for a very cool photo.

A gorgeous female pink robin in the snow on kunanyi/Mt Wellington thanks to Photography By Nikki Long who says:

The little female Pink Robin 💕 They are so tiny and sweet and this one has just a tinge of pink on her chest which does happen from time to time with females. And bless her for landing in some snow for me. She was a fair distance away but kept still long enough for me to get a shot.

Spring has Sprung! Time for a new challenge.....

....and I think you will all like it!

Firstly, a photo from beautiful Tasmania - in fact from Maria Island, off the East Coast of Tasmania.


A stunning sunset on Maria Island thanks to Jan Greig.

Maria Island is a special place with something for everyone - historic ruins, sweeping bays, rugged cliffs and mountains, and remarkable wildlife. Set just off the warm East Coast, the island is easily accessed by ferry. 

Once on the island you will discover a place where there are no motor vehicles, no shops and no worries.
Dwell on that for a while and then look at the newest challenge:  we want you to play Tic Tac Toe!

Week Three for Unstampabelles:

Hello Peeps - another week of world uncertainty! Hope all you who were stressed over flooding and windy days are now OK or on the road to recovery and that all the nasty extremes of climate change have dissipated around you for the moment! Beautiful autumn is arriving for those of you who live on the top part of this big blue ball we all inhabit; while it is spring for the rest of us!

That mean's it has been mighty cold lately! And snowy! With a bit of a frosty morning thrown in. Oh, and overcast - however, we have had lot's of Aurora's too - know by the northerners as the Northern Lights! We call her (yes, she is female) Aurora or The Lady. If you want to get up in the middle of the night in the cold and follow her siren call, you can get some amazing photo's. Me, I prefer my bed and then drool over the work of others!


The historical Ross Bridge… like you’ve never seen her before thanks to Scott Wilmot Bennett who says:

Just after midnight all the warring elements seemed to align. The wind dropped, the clouds started to clear, the moonlight, the fog and even the bridge spotlight, yielded to Aurora's mighty light.

I have taken a photo of a playpus in this river just under the left side of the bridge on cold winter's day a few years ago. This township is about 1.5 hours away from us in what is know as the midlands of Tasmania. It is bypassed by the highway, so you have to deliberately mean to go there and when you do the bridge is a hidden gem.  Can you see the stars shining through as well?

There are some stars on my DT as well!
They have some more inspiration for you for the current challenge

So, here is the inspiration:











While thinking of the Design Team, a shout-out to one of ours Shylaa who is currently experiencing medical problems and is in hospital for a while. Get better quicker and keep well, Shylaa - we are all sending positive thoughts your way. Hope you can play with a bit of crafting to keep you from going bonkers in there! Colouring-in is a great calming activity!
