Week 424–Mega Christmas challenge 2017!

*** WARNING – LONG POST ***

Grab a cuppa and a biscuit (or two) and make yourself comfortable!

Good morning dear crafters, we hope you all had a fantastic week last week. The DT really enjoyed visiting your blogs and seeing you fabulous creations for last week’s “use your favourite colours” challenge.  Don't forget to check back later to find out who the lucky winner of 3 digi images courtesy of Lemon Shortbread will be and also to see who Karen has chosen as her top 5 Passionista.

This week we are launching our very special “Mega Christmas challenge” which runs for a whole month and ends on 2nd January 2018!  I’m sure you’ll agree that both design teams have worked extremely hard once again this year and they deserve a little break to catch up on their last minute gifts and cards.  However to make up for the lack of challenges we have some fantastic prizes up for grabs!  Our theme for the Mega Christmas challenge is “add a sentiment” which is such a simple theme for you so we expect lots of entries!!  You are welcome to make Christmas cards but as the challenge will still be running after the ‘BIG’ day you can of course make any type of creation as long as you follow the theme.  As time is precious for our DT at this time of year we are limiting the number of entries you can make to just 3 for this month long challenge.  Please remember to be eligible for our prizes you must use your promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, metallic or aqua markers.  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

So now for the exciting bit – the prizes!

DigiStamp Boutique are generously offering one lucky winner a prize of a £10.00 voucher.

So to re-cap the challenge will run until 2nd January 2018 and you can enter a maximum of 3 times.  Unfortunately during the Mega Christmas challenge we will not be choosing a top 5 passionista but this will re-commence for the first challenge in 2018.

We cannot wait to see your creations and look forward to visiting your blogs. We’ll be back on 19th December to share Team 2’s gorgeous selection of cards, so don’t forget to stop by for more wonderful inspiration.

Hugs, Denise, Gina & DT x x
