Week 675–use die cuts

Good morning lovely crafters, we hope you had a great week last week and enjoyed our ‘for a child’ challenge.  Thank you for all your gorgeous entries; it was so lovely to have you join us and 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 2 digi images courtesy of Dr Digi’s House of Stamps 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 you a fun theme of ‘use die cuts’.  Lorraine C. doesn’t mind what you make this week as long as you include some die cuts in addition to your coloured image.  Such a simple theme this week and we cannot wait to see all your gorgeous 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 brand new to us this year at PFM - Alex Syberia - and they are offering one lucky winner a £10.00 gift card to spend in their online store (only applies to digital products: digital stamps and cut files).  All of the DT have used images from Alex Syberia Designs 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):
