Week 378–sports/hobbies

Good morning dear crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for all your entries for last week’s ‘add some bling’ 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 4 digi images courtesy of Bugaboo stamps and we will also be finding out who Marie has chosen as her top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Lorraine C. from Team 2, and she has given us the fantastic theme of ‘sports/hobbies’.  Lorraine C. would simply like you to make a creation that depicts some type of sport or hobby on it i.e. fishing, gardening, football, golf etc.    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.  There are so many super cute images available you will be spoilt for choice.  The DT were lucky enough to use some of their images on their creations this week.
