Week 669–anything other than Christmas

Good morning lovely crafters, we hope you had a great week last week.  Thank you for all your gorgeous entries for our ‘traditional Christmas colours’ challenge; 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 3 digi images courtesy of Colour of Love digis and also who Sue has chosen as her Top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Linda from Team 2, and she has given us the theme of ‘anything other than Christmas’.  This week Linda is fed up with making Christmas cards so has given you an anything goes challenge but she doesn’t want to see any Christmas creations!  I’m sure some of you are already finished making your Christmas creations so this is the perfect opportunity to get started on next year’s birthday cards.  A super easy theme and we cannot wait to see what you create.  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 Dr Digi’s House of Stamps and they are offering one lucky winner 2 digi images of their choice from their online store.  All of the DT have used images from Dr Digi’s House of Stamps 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):

Another great 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.  If you haven’t already, don’t forget to grab our logo from the sidebar for your own blogs.

This is our final weekly challenge of the year before our special month long Mega Christmas challenge so we hope you can join us next week as we have lots of fantastic prizes up for grabs!

Stay safe and sending our love to you all.

Hugs, Denise, Gina and DT x x

Week 668–traditional Christmas colours

Good morning lovely crafters, we hope you had a great week last week.  Thank you for all your gorgeous entries for our ‘fall/autumn colours’ challenge; 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 All Dressed Up stamps 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 ‘traditional Christmas colours’.  As the title suggests Sue doesn’t mind what you create or what theme you follow (so it doesn't have to be a Christmas card) as long as you use traditional Christmas colours i.e. red, green, gold etc along with any neutrals you want to use.  Such a lovely theme and we cannot wait to see what you create.  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 Colour of Love digis and they are offering one lucky winner 2 digi images of their choice from their online store.  Most of the DT have used images from Colour of Love digis 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):
