Week 441–celebrations

Good morning lovely crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for your gorgeous entries into last week’s ‘buttons and/or bows’ challenge.  It was lovely to see your entries and as always the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs and seeing your beautiful creations.  Please remember to come back later as we will be announcing our lucky winner who will win the £10.00 voucher courtesy of DigiStamp Boutique and we will also find out who Karen has chosen as her Top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Nic from Team 1, and she has given us the fantastic theme of ‘celebrations’.  As the title suggests Nic would like you to make a creation for any celebration you like.  It can be for a wedding, new baby, thank you teacher, even happy birthday.  I’m sure this will be a popular challenge.  Remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card.  As always to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products (promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, aqua markers or metallic markers) and of course follow the theme.  Please can you help us by stating which products you have used on your creation I.e. ‘coloured with promarkers’ etc.  Thanks x x

Our generous sponsor this week is The Paper Shelter and they are offering one lucky winner 3 digi images of their choice from their online store.  Their images are so pretty so why not pop over to their store and check them out.  The DT were lucky enough to use images from The Paper Shelter on their creations this week.
