Hello and welcome to 
Not Just Cards Challenge Blog

Theme Always Anything Goes
Unlimited Entries
Unlimited links to other challenges
Unlimited fun!!

All we ask is you follow us please

We have some new sponsors this month to Not just Cards, a big warm welcome from the team and a BIG thank you for sponsoring us. We also have some of our old favourites joining us which we are so thankful to them for their continued support of our group. I hope you all had fun last month with our Blog Hop, it was so nice to see so many of you join in the fun.

The challenges are monthly. These will be the first Monday of the month. We will still have lots of fantastic sponsors and a fantastic design team. I have relaxed things for the team, they are now welcome to make cards or non card projects, but we always welcome you to try something new.

We also appreciate every single one of you that joins in our challenges but as you can see by todays post our team is always busy creating and playing. So, I have taken the choice to make commenting optional for our team. I am sure you can image the amount of work I throw at the girls and they are an amazing team, they just get on with it and a lot more, so I hope you are happy with this choice but we will, where we can, make time to come and visit you.

Blog Hop winners are on the design Teams blogs and how to claim your prize. You have 7 days to claim your prize. Any prize not claimed with be forfeited and not re-drawn
You must email the DT member for your image and not use the group email, thanks

Here are the DT members who have a prize to offer

Hi there – I am Ike……a nickname that I got hooked with many years ago due to my surname, and in my profession at that time …… they just loved  to give nicknames J.

I live in Greece and have a passion for kitties J
I am a complete nutter or should I say I’m ‘zany’ hahaha.  I have a very strange/sick sense of humour and I must admit I spend a lot of time talking to myself. !!  Well, I get more sense out of me.!  I reckon in a few years I shall be known as the “crazy cat lady”  J

I am an artist and have a strange mind when it comes to creating my art. I either go completely true to life… right down to the last hair… or I go totally surreal.   I have a passion for all things horror/Gothic etc. I’ve always loved horror films and books and I guess that’s why it creeps into my stuff

I started my Blog a couple of years ago and although I love crafting, my real passion is drawing, and now I just love making digital images.

My SHOP is IkesArt found at
My Blog is Ikes World and is at
Exclusive designer for Smeared Ink
