Week 400–sketch

Good morning dear crafters, I hope you all had a wonderful week.  I hope you are all coping with the high temperatures at the moment.  I know I’m a killjoy but it’s a little too hot for me, especially in work.  I’ll be moaning it’s too cold/wet next week I expect haha!  Thank you for your gorgeous entries for last week’s ‘add a sentiment’ challenge, I knew it was going to be a popular one and you didn’t disappoint.  As always it was lovely to see your wonderful entries and the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs and seeing our gorgeous creations.  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 Linda has chosen as her top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which was originally chosen by Ali from Team 1 before she stepped down from the DT.  As she is not here any longer I will be taking over her challenge this week.  Ali chose to give us an awesome sketch to work with this week.  As long as we can see the basics of the sketch you are free to interpret it as you see fit.  Here is the sketch:

Challenge 400 - 20th June 2017

Week 399–add a sentiment

Good morning lovely crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for all your gorgeous entries for last week’s ‘birds, bugs and butterflies’ challenge.  As always it was lovely to see your wonderful creations and the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs.  Please remember to come back later as we will be announcing our 2 lucky winners, one who will win the 30% discount voucher courtesy of Petal Lu and one who will win the 6 pack of promarkers courtesy of Team PFP!  We will also be finding out who Shelly has chosen as her top 5 passionista.

Onto the new challenge, (which was originally set by Andie) but now graciously taken over by Linda from Team 2, and she has given us the fantastic theme of ‘add a sentiment’.  It is as simple as it sounds!  You can make anything you like as long as it includes a sentiment of some sort.  We expect lots of entries this week as it is such an open theme.  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
