Week 326–Mega Christmas Challenge 2015!

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 Lorraine B.’s “Christmas tree” challenge.  Don't forget to check back later to find out who Lorraine B. has chosen as her top 5 passionista and also to see if you are our lucky winner of the $12.00 voucher courtesy of A Day For Daisies.

This week we are launching our very special “Mega Christmas challenge” which runs for a whole month and ends on 5th January 2016!  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 “let’s celebrate”.  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 follow the theme.  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.  Please can you help us by stating which Letraset products you have used on your creation i.e. ‘coloured with promarkers’ etc.  Thanks x x

So now for the exciting bit – the prizes!

Letraset are generously offering one lucky winner a super bundle of goodies which includes:
2 x packs of Winsor & Newton Promarkers, 1 A4 bleedproof marker pad, 1 A4 pack of Safmat and 1 pack of transfers.

So here are the gorgeous cards from team 1 (please click on their names to visit their personal blogs):

We cannot wait to see your creations and look forward to visiting your blogs. We’ll be back on 22nd December to share Team 2’s gorgeous selection of cards, so don’t forget to stop by for more wonderful inspiration.

It's not a Christmas card, but I made a birthday card for a male partner at work, who's a big Ajax fan. So Hope that's okay Too..
I really love how it worked out a little bit.

Need to buy some new promarkers, I run out a few. Hope you like my sexy Ajaxfan card (hihi)..

Best wishes,

Saskia Pullen

PS. To Everyone who reads this Wisihing you all a wonderful Christmas time and a Creative 2016!!

Taking this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New year. I also wish to thank the DT team for inviting me to join them as a guest over the past weeks. It's been fun and I have to say, to those who haven't the opportunity to do a 'turn' it's a bit more thought provoking than you would think. So many thanks again to all Challenges and their DTs for giving us Crafters an opportunity to feel enthused and participate.
