Week 592–Special Anniversary challenge!


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

Good morning dear crafters. We hope you had a good week last week and managed to fit some crafting into your busy schedules.  It was lovely to see all your gorgeous entries for last weeks ‘use your favourite colours’ challenge; as always the DT had a wonderful time visiting your blogs and see your beautiful creations.  Don't forget to check back later to find out who the lucky winner of the 2 digi images courtesy of Star Jam Lines will be and to see who Marlene has chosen as her Top 5 Passionista. 

Onto this week's challenge and we have a very special one for you this week as it's our 12th Anniversary. Can you believe it's been 12 years since Gina and myself started our little blog?  It only seems like yesterday when we nervously made our first post!  Time flies when your having fun.  As it's a special challenge we have a really fun theme for you of "spots and/or stripes".  As the title suggests you can make anything you like this week as long you include some spots, stripes or both!  We are hoping to see lots of entries but please note that as we have extra prizes up for grabs this week we are only accepting a maximum of 3 entries per person for this one challenge only.  The only other rules we have are use your markers and have fun!

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 a $12.00 voucher

Crafty Sentiments Designs are offering 3 digi images

Dr Digi’s House of Stamps are offering one lucky winner 2 digi images

JMC Designs are offering one lucky winner 1 digital collection

Leann’s World 101 are offering one lucky winner 2 digi images


Wow we told you there were amazing prizes didn’t we?  Definitely lots of reasons to join in the fun this week!! To give you lots of inspiration we have both Team 1 and Team 2 to share their creations (as always please click on their names to visit their personal blogs):

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

Happy 12th Anniversary to you. I remember when you first started and I couldn't join in as I didn't have Promarkers then, only cheap felt tipped pens and then Marvy Le Plume. Little did I know that years later I would have the full set of Promarkers and I colour with them all the time now.

I hope the challenge goes from strength to strength and here's to the next 12 years!

Stay Happy, Healthy and Creating Joy

Congrats on your 12th anniversary, it's great to see you still going when loads of blogs have gone! I love colouring with my Promarkers and entering your challenges when I can. My colouring is not perfect, but I do get great inspiration from the team. I'm looking forward to this challenge, now to get my thinking cap on.
