Week 394–Special Anniversary challenge!


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

Good morning dear crafters. We hope you had a wonderful week last week and managed to fit some crafting into your busy schedules.  Thank you for your gorgeous entries to last week’s "make it bloom" challenge.  Marie will certainly have her work cut out for her when she has to pick her top 5 passionista.  Don't forget to check back later to find out who she has chosen and also to see if you are the lucky winner of the $10.00 gift certificate courtesy of The Paper Shelter.

Onto this week's theme and we have a very special challenge for you this week as it's our 8th Anniversary. Can you believe it's been 8 years since Gina and myself started our little blog to share our love of all things Letraset/Winsor & Newton?  It only seems like yesterday when we nervously made our first post!  As it's a special challenge we have a really fab theme for you of "BINGO", you can create anything you like as long as you follow a line on the bingo board either horizontally, vertically or diagonally.  You could even show off and go for a full house (Hazel nearly succeeded but she forgot the kraft card!!).  Please note we are only accepting a maximum of 3 entries per person for this one challenge only.  To be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton/Letraset products (i.e. pro, flex, tria, aqua, metallic or neon markers) and of course follow the theme. 

Here is the BINGO board to use for your inspiration this week:


As always we have some fantastic prizes up for grabs and our sponsors have been very generous as usual .  Here we go....


Bugaboo stamps are offering one lucky winner a prize of $21.00 voucher

Stunning cards as always I’m sure you’ll agree.  Please remember for this challenge we will only accept 3 cards/projects per person.  Also just for this one week we will not be choosing a top 5 passionista as we have lots of extra winners, however this will go back to normal next week.  We hope you have a brilliant week and we cannot wait to see what you create.  Good luck!

Hugs, Denise, Gina & DT x x
