Hello again friends, I’m back to announce our lucky Winner and Top 5 Passionista for last week’s ‘January blues’ challenge.  It was so lovely to see all your fabulous entries and as always the DT had a wonderful time visiting your blogs and seeing your gorgeous creations.  I’ll be announcing Lisa G.’s Top 5 Passionista in a moment but firstly let’s find out who our lucky winner is!

For last week’s challenge we were sponsored by Dies to Die For and they offered one lucky winner a £15.00 voucher to spend in their online store.   As always we used random.org and he chose:

No. 10

Lynne

Congratulations Lynne, your card is so pretty.  Your image is adorable and your colouring is perfect.  Please email us at promarkerchallenge@gmx.com and we will get your prize to you.  We hope you will proudly display our winners badge on your blog:

Now onto the Top 5 Passionista and Lisa G.  had a wonderful time visiting your blogs and seeing your amazing creations.  It was a really tough decision but after much deliberation here are her favourite 5:

Vic

Congratulations everyone, you can now proudly display the top 5 passionista blinkie on your blogs.  If you need any help with this please email us at promarkerchallenge@gmx.com.

Unfortunately one of our winners from the Mega Christmas challenge has not claimed their prize so we have re-drawn another winner who will win the Uniko Stamps prize of 1 stamp set (which must be in stock).  Again using random.org the lucky re-drawn winner is:

No. 53

Congratulations Helen, your card is really cute and the image is adorable.  Please contact as at promarkerchallenge@gmx.com to claim your prize and feel free to take our winner’s badge for your blog.

Week 623–going dotty

Good morning lovely crafters, we hope you had a great week last week.  Thank you for your gorgeous entries for our ‘January blues’ challenge.  It was so lovely to have you join us and as always the DT had a wonderful time visiting your blogs and seeing your amazing creations.  Don’t forget to pop back later to find out who won the £15.00 courtesy of Dies to Die For and also to see who Lisa G. has chosen as her Top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Lisa M. from Team 1, and she has given us the theme of ‘going dotty’.  Lisa  doesn’t mind what you make this week as long as it has lots of dots on it.  It can be dots on your image, dotty paper, dotty ribbon or even a dotty embossing folder.  Such a simple theme this week and we cannot wait to see all your gorgeous entries.  Don’t forget you can enter any type of creation it doesn’t have to be a card.  The only rule we have is use your markers and have fun!

Our generous sponsor this week is The Paper Shelter and they are offering one lucky winner 3 digi images of their choice from their online store.  Most of the DT have used the super cute 'most adorable Panda' image except for Marie who has used 'just roll with it' from The Paper Shelter store. 

The design team have worked their magic once again this week and have created beautiful cards to inspire you (please click on their names to visit their personal blogs):

Lisa M.

Lorraine C. 

Marie

Marlene

Julie

Another great week of wonderful inspiration from the DT!! We hope you can join in with our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing what you create.  If you haven’t already, don’t forget to grab our logo from the sidebar for your own blogs.

Stay safe and sending our love to you all.

Week 622–January blues

Good morning and welcome back to our lovely crafters; we can’t wait to share our first challenge of 2022.  We hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and managed to fit in some crafting over the holiday period.  The last month has just whizzed by hasn’t it!  Thank you for all your lovely entries for our Mega Christmas challenge challenge.  It was amazing to see all your gorgeous entries and as always the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs and seeing your creations.  Please remember to come back later as we will be announcing all our lucky winners – how exciting!

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Lisa G. from Team 2, and she has given us the theme of ‘January blues’.  As the title suggests Lisa wants to see your shades of blue themed creations this week.  I don’t think it can get any easier than that to start us off this year.  Don’t forget you can enter any type of creation it doesn’t have to be a card.  So pull out your favourite markers and get colouring. 

Our generous sponsor this week is Dies to Die For and Tracy is offering one lucky winner a £15.00 voucher to spend in her online store.  Tracy has lots of different brands in her store including lots of amazing US brands that we all love. 

The design team have worked their magic once again this week and have created beautiful cards to inspire you (please click on their names to visit their personal blogs):

Lisa G.

Nat

Elaine

Karen

Kitty

Linda

Another week of wonderful inspiration from the DT!! We hope you can join in with our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing what you create.

Don’t forget to pop back later to see if you are one of our lucky winners from our Mega Christmas challenge.  There will be no top 5 as we have lots of winners instead (but this will re-start again this week). 

Stay safe and sending our love to you all.

Hugs, Denise, Gina and DT x x
