Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

It took me ages to come up with an idea for the Alpha Challenge at Craft Barn this time; nothing would spring to mind then I was rootling through a box of die cuts and came across some gate and fence die cuts I had purchased from the well known auction site! Light bulb moment – I had my word!!! The letter was ‘G’ so I had Gate.

Dictionary 04-16 G sig

It may not easily be seen in the photo but I opened the gate and used a small piece of foam to keep it open, hoping to invite you in to view the statue!

    Hi Lynn what a clever idea to use the picket fence die cut include a to a gate in your fence, and your use of the foam pads works beautifully to make your garden an inviting and interesting place to visit. Thanks for sharing your lovely photo.
