Week 253 - Theme

Good morning dear crafters, I hope you all had a brilliant week last week.  Thank you all so much for your gorgeous entries for last week’s ‘use blue & yellow’ challenge.  There weren’t too many entries but I suppose you are all outside enjoying the lovely weather at the moment, and who can blame you!!!  The DT had a fantastic time visiting your blogs and enjoyed seeing your wonderful creations.    Don’t forget to come back later to find out who Sue has chosen as her top 5 passionista and to find out who the lucky winner of the £10.00 voucher courtesy of DigiStamp Boutique will be! 

Onto this week’s challenge which has been set by Shelly from Team 1 and she has given us the theme of “rags to riches”.  Shelly would like you to recycle something on your card or creation.  It can be simply re-using some ribbon you had on a present, or cardboard packaging.  Whatever you use please can you tell us in your post.  Remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card.  Don’t forget, as always, to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Letraset products (i.e. promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers, tria markers, metallic markers or neon markers).

Our generous sponsor this week is Polkadoodles and they are offering one lucky winner a prize of 2 gorgeous digis – ‘Fredericka chic’ and ‘Fredericka debutante’.

See I told you the DT cards were stunning didn’t I!!  We hope you can join in with our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing what you create.

As Shelly is on her maternity leave I (Denise) will be choosing her top 5 passionista for her. 

Hugs, Denise, Gina & DT x x
