Week 572–Mega Christmas challenge 2020!


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 all you fabulous creations for our “Christmas” challenge.  Don't forget to check back later to find out who the lucky winner of the £20.00 voucher courtesy of Clearly Besotted stamps will be and also to see who Linda has chosen as her top 5 Passionista.

Before we announce the details of this special challenge we would like to introduce you to our 2 newbies who will be joining the DT for our first challenge in 2021.  The lucky ladies are Lisa Goodall and Marlene Atkinson.  If you are a regular participant of our challenges you’ve probably seen their names are they also regularly take part.  I’m sure you will join me in welcoming them to our team. 

This week we are launching our very special “Mega Christmas challenge” which runs for a whole month and ends on 5th January 2021!  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 “add a sentiment”.  We don't mind what you create for this challenge, as long as you include a sentiment on your creation!  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 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!

We have asked both design teams to share some inspiration with you but as it such a long challenge we will be posting the inspiration from Team 1 today and then in two week’s time we will be posting inspiration from Team 2.  So here are the gorgeous cards from team 1 (please click on their names to visit their personal blogs):

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

So to re-cap the challenge will run until 5th January 2021 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 2021.

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.

Hugs, Denise, Gina & DT x x
