Good morning dear crafters.

As always we have some fantastic prizes up for grabs and our sponsors have been very generous as usual.  Here we go....

Week 739 - let it bloom

Good morning lovely crafters; we hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for your gorgeous entries into last week's 'birthdays' challenge, although I think you were all too busy enjoying the sunshine to do very much crafting lol!  It was lovely to have you join us and as always the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs and seeing your beautiful creations.  Don’t forget to pop back later to find out who won the 2 digi images courtesy of Dr Digi's House of Stamps and also who Elaine has chosen as her Top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Marie from Team 1, and she has given us the theme of ‘let it bloom'.  Marie has given you a super easy theme this week and would like to see flowers on your creations.  It could be a floral image, floral papers or even die cut flowers (as long as you also include an image coloured with markers).  We hope you’ll have fun and can’t wait to see what you create this week.  Don't forget you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card but whatever you make please remember you must include a hand coloured image to be eligible for our prize draw.  So come on, grab your markers, and have fun!

Our generous sponsor this week is a new one for us this year - Hetty Clare - and they are offering one lucky winner 2 digi images of their choice from their online store.   The DT have all used images from Hetty Clare on their creations this week.
