** WARNING LONG POST TODAY – YOU MAY WANT TO GRAB A CUPPA AND A BISCUIT **
** IT WILL BE WORTH THE EFFORT WE PROMISE **
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 Loopy Lou’s “sketch” challenge. Don't forget to check back later to find out who she has chosen as her top 5 passionista and also to see if you are our lucky winner of the 1 stamp from Whiff of Joy stamps.
This week we are launching our very special Mega Christmas challenge which runs for a whole month and ends on January 7th 2014! 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 a nice easy one “include a sentiment”. 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 it includes a sentiment of some kind. 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.
So now for the exciting bit – the prizes!
Letraset are generously offering one lucky a winner a pack of their Autumn/Winter promarkers Ltd Edition set!
DigiStamp Boutique are generously offering one lucky winner a prize of a £10 voucher to spend in her store.
Bugaboo stamps are generously offering one lucky winner a prize of 10 digis of their choice.
Clearly Besotted Stamps is offering one lucky winner 1 stamp set of their choice.
Dies to Die For are offering one lucky winner a £10 voucher to spend in their online store.
Bearly Mine Designs are offering one lucky winner a £10 voucher to spend in their online store.
We told you the prizes were amazing didn’t we! Definitely lots of good reasons to take part in our special challenge.
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. So here are the gorgeous cards from team 2 (please click on their names to visit their personal blogs):
Wow we’re sure you’ll agree that their cards are stunning. So to re-cap the challenge will run until 7th January 2014 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 2014.
We can’t wait to see your creations and look forward to visiting your blogs. We’ll be back on 24th December to share Team 1’s gorgeous selection of cards, so don’t forget to stop by for more wonderful inspiration.
Hugs, Denise, Gina & DT x x
