Week 60 – Theme

Good morning crafters – we are here to announce our brand new challenge.  However before we go into details we would like to say a big thank you for all your amusing images and sentiments for our “give us a laugh” challenges.  Emma has had a whale of a time looking at all the entries so be sure to check back later and find out who she has chosen as her top 5 passionista.  We will also be announcing the winner of the £10.00 gift voucher courtesy of The Craft Garden

Our challenge this week has been set by Julie and she would like to see “animals” on your projects this week.  We don’t mind what size or shape animals as long as you colour them with your promarkers. 

As I’m sure most of you are aware the A spoonfull of Sugar challenge is running a card drive for Michelle who has suffered an accident and subsequently has lost her eye.  We are sending Michelle all our love and best wishes for a speedy recovery.  Her positive attitude is amazing and a lesson to us all.  You can visit her blog here.  Please pop over to the ASFOS blog and take part – they have an adorable donkey image and sentiments available free to use if you like.  Now it is a co-incidence this week that our theme is animals, so quite a few of the DT have used the free donkey image and will be sending their cards to Michelle.  

Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp and the lucky winner will receive a $10.00 gift voucher to spend in their online store. 


The DT have worked their magic once again this week and created some gorgeous samples for your inspiration (don’t forget click on their names to visit their personal blogs):

PFP challenge 60 - animal colours (close up)


image Wow I’m sure that has inspired you to go and dig out all your animal images or even pop over to ASFOS challenge and grab your free donkey image.  Whatever you decide to use we can’t wait to see them and look forward to visiting your blogs. 

Don’t forget we have a new Digi Friday tutorial on the Weekend Workshop on Friday and another chance to win a prize donated by our sponsor, just by leaving a comment.

Hugs, Denise, Gina & DT x x
