Hello all and its the second week in our Just for the fun of it challenges. I again will be unable to comment this week , so please forgive me.

So this weeks challenge is called Its a puzzler, and you can use puzzle peices, alter any form of puzzle, make your own puzzle or portray something that puzzles you Eg The meaning of Life LOL

Here are a couple of links you might find useful

I was planning to make one of these but i ran out of time this week. But wouldn’t they be great altered

So here are this weeks design team examples

 

Our guest designer this week is Jill from the stampman, and she has created some great examples. Thanks Jill for being our GD this week A few words from Jill

 
I’ve always enjoyed messy crafts, I remember my grandmother giving me a pile of
 
magazines along with flour and water paste as a child, my brother and I had great fun with it
 
all!  I dabbled with sewing, knitting and other crafts until I found my true favourite, rubber
 
stamping.  Having sold craft materials with my partner Ian trading as The Stamp Man for the last 17
 
years, I have been lucky enough to attend many trade shows and have tried new gadgets
 
and techniques as they hit the market.  I’ve met so many wonderful people, and I hope I
 
have shared as much knowledge about crafting as I have learnt from others.
 
 
 
I’ve discovered something about my crafting along the way, I’ve thought I’ve had times
 
where inspiration is in short supply, but I’ve really had a planning block, although it is nice to
 
have an idea of what you want to achieve before you start a project, I now have no fear of
 
getting started, I can then let the project develop, a little like I did with the UTEE frame. 
 
The puzzler is, which way up should it be, it can be hung upside down, or whichever way preferred!

 You can find The stamp man in our sponsors list in the side bar

There are no projects or papers this week

    I’ve just finished a puzzle piece for a swap and then coincidentally came across this challenge – so, taking the plunge, this is a first for me in joining a challenge! Synchronicity? Lovely pieces I’ve seen here!
