Good morning crafters, we hope you are surviving the very cold weather we’re having at the moment. It’s definitely the perfect weather for staying indoors and crafting!! If unfortunately you do have to venture outside make sure you wrap up warm and take care on the icy roads and pavements!
We would like to stay a massive thank you for all your support for our blog hop and special challenge over the past 2 weeks. It has been wonderful to visit all your blogs and see the fantastic talent and creativity around in blogland! You certainly made it a blog hop to remember. Please check back later this evening to find out if you are one of our lucky winners. As we stated at the start of the challenge we unfortunately won’t be choosing any top 5 passionista as we will be too busy sorting out all the prize winners – I’m sure you’ll understand.
Following on from our blog hop & special challenge we now have a Mega Christmas challenge for you which will last until January 4th 2011. I’m sure you’ll agree that the design team deserve a little break to catch up on their last minute gifts and cards. However to make up for the lack of challenges we again have some magnificent prizes up for grabs.
Our theme for the Mega Christmas challenge is a nice easy one “anything goes”, just remember to use your promarkers or aqua markers to be eligible for our prizes. Don’t forget you can enter as many times as you like and combine with any other challenges.
So now for the exciting bit – the prizes!
Letraset are generously offering a set of 40 promarkers in specific craft colours stored in two promarker wallets – fab eh!
Simon Says Stamp are generously offering 3 x $10.00 gift certificates to their online store!
Just Tracy’s are generously offering a variety of prizes including 3 promarkers, a memento ink pad, 10 sheets of suitable smooth white paper and a stamp from their own range
Whiff of Joy Stamps are generously offering 1 stamp of winner’s choice
Some Odd Girls are offering 3 digi images of the winner’s choice
if that wasn’t enough - they are also offering a 25% discount to everyone on any order placed on their site during the challenge period using code PRO25 (excluding sale items)!!
We have asked both design teams to share some inspiration with you but as it such a long challenge we will be posting the inspiration from team 1 today and then in two week’s time we will be posting inspiration from team 2. So here are the gorgeous cards from team 1:
Wow we’re sure you’ll agree that their cards are stunning. Although the DT cards are predominately Christmas don’t forget the challenge is “anything goes” so it’s entirely up to you what you make. If you are already super organised (unlike us) you can make birthday, baby or even your thank you cards!
So to re-cap the challenge will run until 4th January 2011 and you can enter as many times as you like, as long as you use your promarkers or aqua markers.
We can’t wait to see your creations and look forward to visiting your blogs.
Hugs, Denise, Gina & DT x x
