Week 719 - Mega Christmas challenge - add a sentiment


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 your fabulous creations for our “baby it's cold outside” challenge.  Don't forget to check back later to find out who the lucky winner of the 3 digi images courtesy of The Paper Shelter will be and also to see who Sue 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 2nd January 2024!  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 “add a sentiment”.  We don't mind what you create for this challenge, as long as you include a sentiment and 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 are so grateful to have their continued support.  

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.  

Here are the gorgeous cards from Team 2 (please click on their names to visit their personal blogs):

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

So to re-cap the challenge will run until 2nd January 2024 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 2024.

We cannot wait to see your creations and look forward to visiting your blogs. We’ll be back on 19th December to share Team 1’s gorgeous selection of cards, so don’t forget to stop by for more wonderful inspiration.

Hugs, Denise, Gina and DT x x
