Week 621–Mega Christmas challenge–anything goes


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 critters” challenge.  Don't forget to check back later to find out who the lucky winner of the £15.00 voucher courtesy of Clearly Besotted stamps will be and also to see who Julie 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 4th January 2022!  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 theme for the Mega Christmas challenge is “anything goes”.  We don't mind what you create for this challenge, as long as you colour with your markers!  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 markers such as Promarkers, Copics, Spectrum Noir, Karin, Zig Clean Color etc

So now for the exciting bit – the prizes!

Dies to Die For are offering 1 lucky winner a £20.00 gift voucher

Wow we are sure you’ll agree our sponsors have been super generous once again this year!

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 2 today and then in two week’s time we will be posting inspiration from Team 1.  

So here are the gorgeous cards from team 2 (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 4th January 2022 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 2022.

We cannot wait to see your creations and look forward to visiting your blogs. We’ll be back on 21st 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

Hello, KathyA again. I just posted another card, and realized that the card I entered, #73 is for New Years, not Christmas. Can you delete it if that isn't allowed? I have another that I'd be happy to enter instead. Thanks! asperkathy(at)hotmail(dot)com
