Congratulations to everyone who has won a prize, we wish we could give you all something but we would need lots of prizes to do that lol!  Please can the winners email us (please state sponsor in the subject line) and we will arrange for you to receive your prizes.  Unfortunately if you do not contact us before the next challenge goes live we will have to re-draw a new winner.  Thank you again for making our challenge blog such a success and we look forward to spending another 7 years with you!!

We hope you all have a wonderful week and find some time to enter our current challenge “ribbon and/or lace” – full details in the post below.

Week 347–Ribbon and/or lace

Good morning dear crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week and you enjoyed our extra special challenge!  Thank you so much for your gorgeous entries for last week’s special 7th anniversary challenge.  It was lovely to see your wonderful entries and as always the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs.  Please remember to come back later as we will be announcing all our lucky winners – you don’t want to miss out as there are lots of amazing prizes.  Don’t forget for this one challenge only we will not be choosing any passionista’s as we have so many winners (and just as well too as it would be such a difficult job)!

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Nat from Team 2 and she has given us the theme of “ribbon and/or lace”.  Nat doesn’t mind what you make as long as you include lace or ribbon or both!  Sounds like fun doesn’t it!!  Please 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 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 Letraset and they are offering one lucky winner a prize of a Rubber Stamping Set 1 (which includes 10 promarkers and 1 fine liner pen).

The lovely Beverley from Uniko stamps also made a card for us and she wrote a quick bio about herself too:
PassionForPM
“Hey! I’m Beverley the owner & designer of Uniko.
Uniko specialises in clear stamps designed and made here in the UK and has been going since February 2012. Uniko is a very small business run by myself (with a little help from my hubby, who keeps an eye on the accounts & helps with website stuff), otherwise I design the stamps & dies, create using them, blog, package the products, answer emails and everything else entailed with running a small business! Along with all of that I am also a full time mummy to 20 month old twin boys - the beans!
I am thrilled to be supporting and sponsoring this fun challenge & I hope that you check out our products on the website and enjoy what you see”
Stunning cards as always I’m sure you’ll agree.  Please remember for this challenge we will only accept 3 cards/projects per person.  Also just for this one week we will not be choosing a top 5 passionista as we have lots of extra winners, however this will go back to normal next week.  We hope you have a brilliant week.  We cannot wait to see what you create.  Good luck!

Hugs, Denise, Gina & DT x x
