Week 277–Mega Christmas challenge!

*** WARNING – LONG POST ***

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 you fabulous creations for Jane B.’s “hark the herald angels sing” challenge.  Don't forget to check back later to find out who Jane B. has chosen as her top 5 passionista and also to see if you are our lucky winner of the 4 digis courtesy of Sassy Studio Designs

This week we are launching our very special Mega Christmas challenge which runs for a whole month and ends on 6th January 2015!  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 “bingo”.  You are welcome to make Christmas cards but as the challenge will still be running after the ‘BIG’ day you can of course make any type of creation as long as you use the bingo board.  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 promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, metallic or aqua markers.

Here is the bingo board you must use for your creations (you can use any line horizontal, vertical or diagonal).  Please tell us which line you have used in your post:

So now for the exciting bit – the prizes!

Week 276–Hark the herald angels sing

Good morning dear crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Can you believe it’s December all ready?  What happened to November lol!  Thank you for your gorgeous entries for last week’s “blooming marvellous” challenge.  It was lovely to see so many wonderful entries and as always the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs.  Don’t forget to come back later to find out who Lisa has chosen as her top 5 passionista and to find out who the lucky winner of the gorgeous digi courtesy of Polkadoodles will be!

Before we announce the details of the new challenge we have some sad news – Jane B. has decided to leave us at the end of the year.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank her for all her wonderful creations for us at PFP and wish her well for the future.  On a happier note, we will have a new DT member joining Team 2 from January 2015.  If you are a regular participant in our challenge you may be aware of our newbie – Lorraine C. – her work is amazing and we are delighted to have her as part of the family at PFP.  I’m sure you will join us in welcoming her to the team.  You can check out her blog here

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Jane B. from Team 2 and she has chosen “hark the herald angels sing”.  Jane would like you to use any angel image on your project this week.  At this time of year it shouldn’t be too difficult!!  Don’t forget you can make anything you want, it doesn’t have to be a card, all creations are welcome.  As always to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Letraset products (promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, aqua markers or metallic markers) and of course follow the theme.

Our generous sponsor this week is Sassy Studio Designs and they are offering one lucky winner a prize of 4 digis of their choice from their online store.
