Week 544–it’s a summer thing!

Good morning lovely crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week and enjoyed celebrating our 11th anniversary with us.  Even though it was a Bank Holiday yesterday in the UK not everyone is ‘out of lockdown’ yet so even if you weren’t able to go out I hope you could still enjoy the sunshine in your gardens or on your outside exercise. Thank you for all your gorgeous entries for last week’s ‘special anniversary challenge’ where our theme was spots and/or stripes.  We were delighted to see lots of lovely entries and as always the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs. Please remember to come back later as we will be announcing our 6 lucky winners!

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Marie from Team 1 and she has given us the theme of ‘it’s a summer thing’.  Marie is making it really simple for you this week.  She would like to see all your summery images, summery colours or even just summer themed embellishments; as long as it reminds us of summer we will accept any creations.  We hope you’ll have fun and can’t wait to see what you create this week. Remember you can enter using any type of creation but as always to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products (promarkers, brush markers, flex markers, tria markers, aqua markers or metallic markers). 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 Lee Holland Designs who is offering one lucky winner a prize of 2 digi images from his online store.  His images are so super cute and the DT were lucky enough to use Lee’s images on their creations.


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):

Hello again friends, I’m back to announce our lucky Winner and Top 5 Passionista for last week’s ‘baby projects’ challenge. Unfortunately our challenge didn’t seem to inspire you but the entries we had were adorable and as always the DT had a wonderful time visiting your blogs.  As we only had 5 entries Elaine has been left off the hook and you will all be awarded a top 5 passionista badge; I’ll showcase your cards below but firstly let’s find out who our lucky winner is!

For last week’s challenge we were sponsored by Colour of Love digis and they offered one lucky winner 3 digi images of their choice from their online store.  As always we used random.org and he chose:

Congratulations Lyn, your House Mouse card is adorable and your colouring is perfect. Please email us at promarkerchallenge@gmx.com and we will arrange for you to receive your prize.

As I mentioned below as we only had 5 entries Elaine didn’t need to choose her Top 5 Passionista – you all get a badge this week.  Here are our lovely top 5:

Week 543–special anniversary challenge!

*** WARNING – LONG POST ***
Grab a cuppa and a biscuit (or two) and make yourself comfortable!

Good morning dear crafters. We hope you had a good week last week and now that the lockdown seems to be lifting in a lot of areas we hope you can manage to fit some crafting into your schedules.  Unfortunately last week’s ‘baby projects’ challenge didn’t entice many entries but the ones we did have were super adorable.  You will all be eligible for a Top 5 passionista award unless we get a few last minute entries.  Don't forget to check back later to find out who is the lucky winner of the 3 digi images courtesy of Colour of Love digis.

Onto this week's challenge and we have a very special one for you this week as it's our 11th Anniversary. Can you believe it's been 11 years since Gina and myself started our little blog to share our love of all things Letraset/Winsor & Newton?  It only seems like yesterday when we nervously made our first post!  As it's a special challenge we have a really fun theme for you of "spots and/or stripes".  As the title suggests you can make anything you like this week as long you include some spots, stripes or both!  We are hoping to see lots of entries this week so please note we are only accepting a maximum of 3 entries per person for this one challenge only.  To be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton/Letraset products (i.e. pro, flex, brush, tria, aqua, metallic or neon markers).

As always we have some fantastic prizes up for grabs and our sponsors have been very generous as usual .  Here we go....

Stunning cards as always I’m sure you’ll agree.  Please remember for this challenge we will only accept 3 cards/projects per person.  Also just for this one week we will not be choosing a Top 5 Passionista as we have lots of extra winners, however this will go back to normal next week.

We hope you have a brilliant week and we cannot wait to see what you create.  Good luck!

Hugs, Denise, Gina & DT x x
