Week 474–add a sentiment

Happy New Year dear crafters!  Sorry for the late post this morning; who decided to have a brand new post on New Year’s morning lol!  We trust you all had a very Merry Christmas and are now looking forward to a happy and healthy 2019.  Hopefully if you were good girls (and boys) Santa brought you some lovely new crafty goodies to play with!  However I know there was quite a lot of illness around this year, so hopefully if you were feeling under the weather during the holidays you are starting to feel better now.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support during 2018 and we hope you will continue to support our challenges in 2019.  On the topic of challenges we had a fantastic response to our month long Mega Christmas challenge and the whole of the DT had a wonderful time visiting your blogs and seeing your amazing creations.  Don’t forget to come back later to check out the exciting bit – finding out who the lucky winners are!  As we had multiple sponsors there will be lots of lucky winners so come back this evening and see if you are one of them!

Ok onto the new challenge, which has been chosen by Karen from Team 2 and she is starting us off with super easy theme to ease you back into the routine and has gone for ‘add a sentiment’.  As the title suggests you can create anything you like as long as you include a sentiment somewhere on your creations and of course use your promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, aqua markers or metallic markers.  Remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card.  Please can you help us by stating which markers you have used on your creation i.e. ‘coloured with promarkers’ etc.  Thanks x x

Our generous sponsor for our first challenge in 2019 is Cowling & Wilcox and they are offering one lucky winner a 6 pack of promarkers in pastel tones.

Cowling & Wilcox Ltd. was born in London in 1960 and has been going strong supplying the very best art products for nearly 60 years. To this day, they maintain their original concept of providing specialist fine and graphic art materials at exceptional prices, and they’re devoted to upholding this mission statement as they expand and evolve into the future.  Check out their website for some amazing deals.  They also have Winsor & Newton products available at fantastic prices.

Hugs, Denise, Gina & DT x x
