Week 748 - pretty pastels

Good morning lovely crafters; we hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for your gorgeous entries into last week's 'favourite colours' challenge.  It was lovely to have you join us and as always the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs and seeing your beautiful creations.  Don’t forget to pop back later to find out who won the 2 digi images courtesy of Leann's World 101 and also who Nat has chosen as her Top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Lisa from Team 1, and she has given us the theme of ‘pretty pastels'.  Lisa doesn’t mind what you make this week but she would love to see all your pastel colours, which are so pretty aren’t they?  You can use any image you like just colour it using soft, pastel colours or use your pastel papers and embellishments.  Easy peasy, right?  Don't forget you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card but whatever you make please remember you must include a hand coloured image to be eligible for our prize draw.  So come on, grab your markers, and have fun!

Our generous sponsor this week is Di's Digi Stamps and she is offering one lucky winner a £6.00 voucher to spend in her online store. 

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):

Another week of wonderful inspiration from the DT!! We hope you can join in with our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing what you create.

Stay safe and sending our love to you all.

Hugs, Denise, Gina and DT x x
