Week 391–going dotty!

Good morning dear crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic long Easter weekend.  I actually didn’t have any eggs this year so my chocolate intake was very poor lol!  I did however find some twix bites in my secret stash so that was like an Easter present to myself haha!  Thank you for all your gorgeous entries for last week’s ‘flower power’ challenge.  As always it was lovely to see your wonderful entries and the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs.  Please remember to come back later as we will be announcing our lucky winner who will receive the $12.00 voucher courtesy of Bugaboo stamps and we will also be finding out who Karen has chosen as her top 5 Passionista.

Before we announce the new challenge we have some DT news for you.  Sadly Ali from Team 1 and Andie from Team 2 have both decided to step down from the DT.  We would like to thank them for their amazing creations for us and wish them well for the future.  That means we have some newbies to introduce.  Firstly for Team 1 (and joining us for today’s challenge) is Sue and for the next challenge also for Team 1 we have Tina.  Joining Team 2 from next week’s challenge will be Linda.  Please give them a big welcome and pop over and check out their blogs.  

Onto the new challenge, which has been chosen by the lovely Lisa from Team 1, and she gave us the fantastic theme of ‘going dotty’.  Lisa would like you to include some dots on your creations this week.  It can be dotty background paper, ribbon, embossed dots or even dotty clothes on your images, the choices are endless.  Such a brilliant theme this week, we can’t wait for you to all go dotty!  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 Letraset products you have used on your creation I.e. ‘coloured with promarkers’ etc.  Thanks x x

Our generous sponsor this week is DigiStamp Boutique and they are offering one lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to spend in their online store.  They have some very gorgeous images in their shop so why not pop over and take a look.  Some of the DT were lucky enough to use images from DigiStamp Boutique on their creations this week.
