Hello again friends, I’m back to announce our lucky winner and top 5 passionista for last week’s “pretty in pink” challenge.  It was fantastic to see your lovely entries and as always the DT had a wonderful time visiting your blogs and seeing your gorgeous creations.  We’ll be announcing Nat’s top 5 passionista in a moment but firstly let’s find out who our lucky winner is!

For last week’s challenge we were sponsored by Little Miss Muffet stamps who offered one lucky winner a $6.00 voucher to spend in their online store.  As always we used random.org and he chose:

Week 416–embossing

Good morning lovely crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for your gorgeous entries for last week’s ‘pretty in pink’ challenge.  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 lucky winner of the $6.00 voucher courtesy of Little Miss Muffet stamps and also we will find out who Nat has chosen as her top 5 passionista.

Onto the new challenge which this week has been chosen by Sue from Team 1 and she has given us a lovely theme of ‘embossing’.  Sue would like you to create something which includes some form of embossing i.e. dry embossing with an embossing folder etc or heat embossing using watermark ink and embossing powder or even use embossing paste.  Another fantastic theme and really simple I think you’ll agree.  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 Uniko stamps and they are offering one lucky winner a stamp set of their choice (which must be in stock) from their online store.  Their stamps  are gorgeous so why not pop over to their store and check them out.

Week 414 - Winner

Hello again friends, I have to say this is the first time since we started the challenge blog that we haven’t had enough entries to choose a top 5 passionista, which is really sad for us.  We appreciate you all have busy lives but we must stress that we need your support to keep our challenge blog going and to keep attracting our generous sponsors.  On a happier note though we are of course going to announce the lucky winner for last week’s ‘rainbows/rainbow colours’ challenge. 

Last week we were generously sponsored by DigiStamp Boutique who offered one lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to spend in their online store.  As always we used random.org and he chose:

Lilibet

Congratulations Lilibet, such a gorgeous card.  I love the super cute image and your rainbow paper looks amazing.  Please email us at promarkerchallenge@gmx.com and we will arrange for you to receive your prize.

We can’t end this post without first thanking the 3 entrants that we did have and showcase their beautiful cards:

Jenimc

Lilibet

Loreal Blondi

Thank you for sharing your beautiful and colourful creations with us this week.

We hope you all have a wonderful week and find some time to enter our current challenge ‘pretty in pink’ – full details in the post below.

Week 415–pretty in pink

Good morning lovely crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Oh dear last week’s ‘rainbows/rainbow colours’ challenge failed to spark much interest with only 3 entries.  Obviously it was lovely to see the wonderful creations we did have 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 win the £10.00 voucher courtesy of DigiStamp Boutique but sadly there will be no top 5 passionista as there were less than 5 entries.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Nat from Team 2, and she has given us the fantastic theme of ‘pretty in pink’.  As the title suggests Nat would like you to use pink on your creations this week.  It can be as much or as little as you like e.g. you may choose to colour your image pink, or use pink papers, or even pink embellishments, it’s entirely up to you.  As long as we see some pink on your cards this week we’ll be happy.  I’m sure you’ll agree this is a nice easy one this week!  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 Little Miss Muffet Stamps and they are offering one lucky winner a $6.00 voucher to spend in their online store.  Their image are super cute so why not pop over to their store and check them out.  Most of the DT were lucky enough to use Little Miss Muffet stamps images on their creations this week.
