Is still recovering so no card this week.

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

We hope you all have a wonderful week and find some time to enter our current challenge ‘gems and/or pearls’ – full details in the post below.

Week 444–gems and/or pearls

Good morning lovely crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for your gorgeous entries into last week’s ‘inspiration photo’ challenge.  It was lovely to see your entries (sadly not as many as we had hoped) but as always the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs and seeing your beautiful creations.  Please remember to come back later as we will be announcing our lucky winner who will win the 3 digi images courtesy of Time for Tea Designs and we will also find out who Shelly has chosen as her Top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Linda from Team 2, and she has given us the lovely theme of ‘gems and/or pearls’.  As the title suggests Linda doesn’t mind what you make this week as long as you have some gems or pearls (or both) on it.  Now we know how much crafters love bling so I’m sure this is going to be an easy challenge for you all.  Remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card.  As always to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products (promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, aqua markers or metallic markers) and of course follow the theme.  Please can you help us by stating which products you have used on your creation I.e. ‘coloured with promarkers’ etc.  Thanks x x

Our generous sponsor this week is Ppinkydolls and they are offering one lucky winner 3 digi images of their choice from their online store.  Their images are cute so why not pop over to their store and check them out.  Some of DT were lucky enough to use images from Ppinkydolls on their creations this week.
