Week 526–include a tag

Good morning lovely crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for your gorgeous entries into last week’s ‘animals’ challenge.  It was a popular challenge and it was lovely to see so many of your wonderful creations.  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 6 pack of PM’s (mid tones) courtesy of Cowling & Wilcox and we will also find out who Sue has chosen as her Top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Lorraine C. from Team 2, and she has given us the very easy and lovely theme of ‘include a tag’.  As the title suggests Lorraine C. doesn’t mind what you make this week as long as you include a tag on it somewhere.  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 Bugaboo Stamps and they are offering one lucky winner a $12.00 voucher to spend in their online store.  Their images are so much fun so why not pop over to their store and check them out. The DT were lucky enough to use images from Bugaboo Stamps on their cards this week.
The design team have worked their magic once again this week and have created beautiful cards to inspire you (please click on their names to visit their personal blogs and see more views of their amazing makes this week):
(using Bugaboo image ‘Jack and Diane’)
(using Bugaboo images ‘love monsters’ and ‘birthday monster sign’)
(using Bugaboo image ‘mouse hearts’)
(using Bugaboo image ‘mouse – big flower’)
(using Bugaboo image ‘sassy gal nurse’)
Card to follow!
