Week 427–something new

Good morning lovely crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for your gorgeous entries into last week’s ‘masculine’ challenge.  It was lovely to see so many entries and 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 1 digi image courtesy of Sasayaki Glitter and we will also find out who Kitty has chosen as her Top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Nic from Team 1, and she has given us the theme of ‘something new’.  Nic would simply like you to make a creation to celebrate something new such as a new house, new baby etc or alternatively you could use some new stash on your creations (maybe you were lucky enough to get some new stash from Santa!).  Easy peasy, right? 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 Little Miss Muffet Stamps and they are offering one lucky winner a $6.00 voucher to spend in their online store.  Their images are so cute so why not pop over to their store and check them out. The DT were lucky enough to use images from Little Miss Muffet Stamps on their cards this week.
