Week 601–celebrate

Good morning lovely crafters, we hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for all your gorgeous entries for last week’s ‘dies and/or punches’ challenge.  It was wonderful to see your lovely creations and as always the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs.  Please pop back later to find out our lucky winner of the £15 voucher courtesy of Dies to Die For and to see who Lorraine C. has chosen as her Top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Elaine from Team 2 and she has given us the theme of ‘celebrate’.   As the title suggests Elaine 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.  As it’s basically an anything goes challenge I’m sure this will be a popular one!  Don’t forget you can enter any type of creation it doesn’t have to be a card.  The only rule we have is that you have to use your markers, for example – Promarkers, Copics, Spectrum Noir, Karin Brushmarkers, Zig Clean Color Brush Markers to name just a few.

We have a new sponsor to our blog this week Sheepski Designs who are offering one lucky winner a prize of 3 digi images of their choice from their online store. All of the DT have used images from Sheepski Designs on their creations 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):

Week 600–dies and/or punches

Good morning lovely crafters, we hope you had a great week last week.  Thank yo for all your gorgeous entries for our ‘animals’ challenge.  As always the DT had a wonderful time visiting your blogs and seeing your amazing creations.  Don’t forget to pop back later to find out who won the digital collection courtesy of JMC Designs and also who Nat has chosen as her Top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Lorraine C. from Team 1, and she has given us the theme of ‘dies and/or punches’.  Lorraine C. doesn’t mind what you make this week, as long as you include some die cutting or punched pieces on your creations.  This is always a very popular challenge – I know I can’t make a card anymore without reaching for the dies – so hopefully this week’s challenge will have lots of entries.  Don’t forget you can enter any type of creation it doesn’t have to be a card.  The only rule we have is use your markers and have fun!

Our generous sponsor this week is Dies to Die For and they are offering one lucky winner a £15 voucher to spend in their on line store.  Tracy carries lots of lovely American brands in her store and regularly has offers and special deals on her website so pop over and take a peek!

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):
