Week 277–Mega Christmas challenge!


Grab a cuppa and a biscuit (or two) and make yourself comfortable!

Good morning dear crafters, we hope you all had a fantastic week last week. The DT really enjoyed visiting your blogs and seeing you fabulous creations for Jane B.’s “hark the herald angels sing” challenge.  Don't forget to check back later to find out who Jane B. has chosen as her top 5 passionista and also to see if you are our lucky winner of the 4 digis courtesy of Sassy Studio Designs

This week we are launching our very special Mega Christmas challenge which runs for a whole month and ends on 6th January 2015!  I’m sure you’ll agree that both design teams have worked extremely hard once again this year and they deserve a little break to catch up on their last minute gifts and cards.  However to make up for the lack of challenges we have some fantastic prizes up for grabs!

Our theme for the Mega Christmas challenge is “bingo”.  You are welcome to make Christmas cards but as the challenge will still be running after the ‘BIG’ day you can of course make any type of creation as long as you use the bingo board.  As time is precious for our DT at this time of year we are limiting the number of entries you can make to just 3 for this month long challenge.  Please remember to be eligible for our prizes you must use your promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, metallic or aqua markers.

Here is the bingo board you must use for your creations (you can use any line horizontal, vertical or diagonal).  Please tell us which line you have used in your post:


So now for the exciting bit – the prizes!

Letraset are generously offering 4 lucky winners a 6 pack of promarkers (blending set)!

DigiStamp Boutique are generously offering one lucky winner a prize of a £10.00 voucher to spend in her store.

Wow we’re sure you’ll agree that their cards are stunning.  So to re-cap the challenge will run until 6th January 2015 and you can enter a maximum of 3 times.  Unfortunately during the Mega Christmas challenge we will not be choosing a top 5 passionista but this will re-commence for the first challenge in 2015.

We cannot wait to see your creations and look forward to visiting your blogs. We’ll be back on 23rd December to share Team 2’s gorgeous selection of cards, so don’t forget to stop by for more wonderful inspiration.

Hugs, Denise, Gina & DT x x
