Week 426–masculine

Good morning lovely crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for your gorgeous entries into last week’s ‘make it digital’  challenge.  It was a popular challenge and it was lovely to see so many entries.  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 6 pack of promarkers (rich tones) courtesy of Cowling & Wilcox and we will also find out who Marie has chosen as her Top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Kitty from Team 2, and she has given us the theme of ‘masculine’.   As the title suggests Kitty would like you to make something for a man or boy this week.  We know male creations are difficult but we always need them so come on take the plunge and join in the fun.  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 Sasayaki Glitter and they are offering one lucky winner 1 digi image of their choice from 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 Sasayaki Glitter on their cards this week.

Week 425–make it digital

Happy New Year dear crafters!  We trust you all had a very Merry Christmas and are now looking forward to a happy and healthy 2018.  Hopefully if you were good girls (and boys) Santa brought you some lovely new crafty goodies to play with!  However I know there was quite a lot of illness around this year, so hopefully if you were feeling under the weather during the holidays you are starting to feel better now.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support during 2017 and we hope you will continue to support our challenges in 2018.  On the topic of challenges we had a brilliant response to our month long Mega Christmas challenge and the whole of the DT had a wonderful time visiting your blogs and seeing your amazing creations.  Don’t forget to come back later to check out the exciting bit – finding out who the lucky winners are!  As we had multiple sponsors there will be lots of lucky winners so come back this evening and see if you are one of them!

Ok onto the new challenge, which has been chosen by Marie from Team 1 and she has given you all a super easy theme to ease you back into the routine and has gone for ‘make it digital’.  As the title suggests Marie wants you to create anything you like as long as you use a digital image and/or sentiment.  You can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card.  Please remember to be eligible for our prizes you must use your promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, metallic or aqua markers.  We would appreciate it if you could help us by stating which markers you have used on your creation i.e. ‘coloured with promarkers’ etc.  Thanks x x
