Hello again friends; we hope you’ve had a great day so far.  I am so sorry for the very late post tonight; I have a new puppy and forgot how much time they take up.  Anyway we’re finally back to announce our lucky Winner and Top 5 Passionista for last week’s ‘animals' challenge.  Thank you for all your lovely entries; as always the DT had a wonderful time visiting your blogs and seeing your gorgeous creations.  I’ll be announcing Kitty's Top 5 Passionista in a moment but firstly let’s find out who our lucky winner is!

For last week’s challenge we were sponsored by Sheepski Designs 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:

Week 744 - summer

Good morning lovely crafters; we hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for your gorgeous entries into last week's 'animals' 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 3 digi images courtesy of Sheepski Designs and also who Kitty has chosen as her Top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Sue from Team 1, and she has given us the theme of ‘summer'.  When Sue set her theme she did think that summer would be in full swing by now but as we all know the British weather is anything but predictable!  Sue would like you to create something that depicts summer; it can be a beach scene, sitting in the garden, riding a bike, or simply eating an ice-cream.  We hope you’ll have fun and can’t wait to see what you create this week.  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 All Dressed Up Stamps and they are offering one lucky winner 2 digi images of their choice from their online store.  The DT have all used images from All Dressed Up Stamps 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):

(using ADU image 'too good to share')
(using ADU image '3 little summer girls', which she cropped to use just one girl)
No card this week - is on her holibobs 

(using ADU image 'beach time')
(using ADU image 'beach time - retired)
No card this week - had a family bereavement

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

Week 743 - animals

Good morning lovely crafters, we hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for your gorgeous entries into last week’s ‘add a sentiment’ challenge.  It was lovely to have so many of you join us and 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 winner of the 3 digi images courtesy of Polkadoodles and also revealing who Marlene has chosen as her Top 5 Passionista.  

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Kitty from Team 2, and she has given us the fantastic theme of ‘animals’.  Kitty knows how much we all love our animals so she simply wants to see your cute critters (including birds) this week. It doesn’t have to be an animal image it could be animal themed patterned paper or an animal die-cut/embellishment as long as you also include a hand coloured image. Hopefully this will be a popular challenge and we can’t wait to see what you make.  The only rule we have is use your markers and have fun! Don’t forget you can enter any type of creation it doesn’t have to be a card.  So just grab your markers, join in and have some fun!

Our generous sponsor this week is Sheepski Designs and they are offering one lucky winner 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.
