Week 473–Mega Christmas challenge

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 our “sparkle and shine” challenge.  Don't forget to check back later to find out who the lucky winner of the 2 digi images courtesy of Leann’s World 101 will be and also to see who Shelly has chosen as her top 5 Passionista.

This week we are launching our very special “Mega Christmas challenge” which runs for a whole month and ends on 1st January 2019!  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 very simple theme for the Mega Christmas challenge is “hip to be square”.  We would like to see your square cards/creations for this challenge.  You are welcome to make Christmas creations 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!

Uniko Stamps are offering 1 lucky winner 1 stamp set (must be in stock)


Di's Digi Stamps are offering 1 lucky winner a $12.00 gift voucher

Wow we’re sure you’ll agree that their cards are stunning.

So to re-cap the challenge will run until 1st January 2019 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 2019.

We cannot wait to see your creations and look forward to visiting your blogs. We’ll be back on 18th December to share Team 1’s gorgeous selection of cards, so don’t forget to stop by for more wonderful inspiration.

Hugs, Denise, Gina & DT x x
