Mega Christmas Challenge

Wow I hope you’re sitting down as we have a super duper challenge with a difference for you starting from 9am today (1st December) and ending at 9am on the 5th January 2010. For this challenge we would like to see your creations using any colours of promarkers but we want you to make ‘anything but a card - with a Christmas and New Year theme’. As this is an extra special challenge our sponsors have come up trumps and we have some amazing prizes up for grabs.


Firstly our grand prize has been generously donated by Letraset – they have given us a whole set of promarkers, which includes the old and new colours – that’s 148 pens!! Plus they have also given us 2 x 5 promarker theme packs.

Joanna Sheen has kindly donated a £10.00 voucher for her online store.

Funky kits has kindly donated 8 prizes of Sugar Nellie stamps:
4 x Maggie & Hamish stamps PLUS 4 x Home Grown stamps.

Stampeezee has kindly donated a £10.00 voucher to spend in their online store.

Whiff of Joy has kindly donated a ‘Fred Celebrating Elephant’ stamp designed by Alison Acton.

We have a gorgeous stamp set called “a little bit of happiness” and roll of red gingham ribbon kindly donated by Julie, who is an independent stamping up demonstrator.


Wow, I hope you’ll agree that these are amazing prizes! All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to make ‘anything but a card - with a Christmas theme’. You can enter as many times as you like throughout the challenge.

Our design team have been working hard creating some samples for your inspiration (don’t forget you can click on their names to visit their personal blogs):

The design team will also be back on the 15th December will another set of samples just in case you need more inspiration. We can’t wait to see what gorgeous creations you come up with and look forward to visiting your blogs. Good luck!

As usual don’t forget to check back later to find out who the lucky winner of the £10.00 voucher donated by Yellow Moon will be and also to see who Maria has chosen as her top 5 passionista.

Hugs, Denise, Gina & Design Team x x

Does theentry have to be completely noit a card as I'd like to ask as I coloured this flower with my promarkers I do love using them can this count as another entry, I would so love to have more promarkers, here it is attatched to a card thanks Julye

This has really been a challenge. I hope mine is OK. I only just read the bit about it being Christmas or New Year-ish, but I figured that a calendar says New year anyway, hope I am right.
