Quirky Sneak Peek and Another Hidden Freebie

Hi, I'm back. And what a scarrrry shock to find I had no email or Blog on my return! Google thought some one from Russia or Saudi Arabia had hacked into my account, so closed everything down! How do I explain it was only little me, on hubby's 3G dongle, in the middle of a muddy field in Cornwall!? So there's a warning for you. Watch where you use your dongle!
Nuff dongle jokes. Here's a sneak peek of my next DT card for the Quirky Crafts Challenge, which starts tomorrow (Sunday) evening, round about 6-ish. Easy one this time, Caro's set the theme for this fortnight, so no excuse, we what to see hundreds of entries!
Now you're here, I'd love to do a bit of research. Nothing too tricky, just tell us (me) what is your favourite type of challenge? Colour, sketch, Easel card, Use flowers, animals, people, shoes, Recipe, Anything Goes? Use Stamps, Use Digi's? Embossing, distressing, whatever! It would be very interesting to see...
Now, as the title above suggests, there is a freebie digi hidden somewhere in this post. Not going to give you any clues to where or what it is, because as I type, I haven't the foggiest! Happy Hunting!

  1. Hi Lyn, Welcome home. I like almost all types of challenges, but "Stash" type challenges are my favorite. Stash challenges are things like, use flowers, or use ribbon, etc.

  4. Found it. Cutest bear ever. Thanks for sharing.
    My favorite challenges are anything goes. I always plan on entering other challenges (sketch, color combos, certain supplies etc), but I am so disorganized that I never get them done on time.

  11. Good morning Lyn,
    Glad you got everything sorted out with the blog etc..I read that some other bloggers had lost their blogs too over the last week and were MIA while they were sorting it out !
    Thanks very much for the 'very cute' freebie !
    You asked for some feed back as regard challenge preferences...well, l am always grateful for all the challenges,and l enjoy having a go at alot of the themes.But, most of us have busy routines and if l see that a theme for a challenge is asking a bit too much ,then l give it a miss.Having a theme is one thing but then adding an extra, sometimes makes it complicated and not fun..
    Hope you are both having a nice weekend and all the family are well..Thundering over here this morning and its been raining..more on the way ! I dont think l will be seeing much spanish sunshine today hehehe Great day for crafting though !
    Hugs

  18. Many thanks for the extra freebie :) Guess who lives in Cornwall? Hope you had a great time despite the soggy weather. Anyway, days in between have been superb down here. Sun is shining as I type. I don't take part in challenges,as due to arthritic hands all my graphics have to be done on the computer. However, I favour your digis to work with more than most xox

  19. Thanks for the freebie Lyn! I like sketch challenges and theme challenges the most - preferabbly ones where we can choose the image (i.e. I have not use when I have to make baby card images) Thanks always for being so generous!

  23. I think distressed is my favorite. I love tearing and folding,sanding and most especially I love distress inks. Now I am off to see if I can find the freebie, wish me luck lol.

  24. I stay so behind of the new technology. I was like "What's a Dongle?" lol.
    Thanks for the cute bear! He is adorable! So glad you're back! :)

  25. LOVE these hidden freebies AND visiting you! thank you so much for sharing the fun!!

  26. Thanks for the image it's so cute. I'm getting SO MUCH BETTER at finding them. LOL And as far as challenges I think I like the ones where you just have to use a certain type of image. Because when I am told I have to put something on a card like flowers or use certain colors that's when I get blocked. When it's just left up to me I could add anything but when I'm told I think it's the rebel in me I don't want to or I design the card not to have a space for it. LOL Who knows I'm just better off being told to use a image then to be told to add a flower to a card. LOL
