Charisma Cardz 'anything but a card' Challenge

Good Morning,
It is with a sad heart I post this morning, as Carlyann owner over at Charisma Cardz has made the hard decision to close down the Charisma Challenge blog (sob) So this will be my last post on this brilliant DT. 
The last challenge starts today and is 'Anything but a card'. We have some great sponsors as usual
Sponsor one:

All Dressed Up
Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters,  in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends.  I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.

I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.

Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers .

All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping.  The coordinators Marilyn and Tracy along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.

We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies .The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis.

We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.
Sponsor Two:

I decided to make a wall hanging. It was originally meant for my daughter's bedroom but I like it so much I have decided to keep it in my craftroom and I will make a second one for my daughter.
I have used a template from Sandra's scrapshop. Sandra has some fantastic templates at very reasonable prices so pop on over and take a look.
I have used the Bow Card template but not actually made it into a card so I just left that part out.

I love this template, it can be used for so many different occassions I am sure you guys will see this popping up quite a few times in my posts.
