For last week’s challenge we were sponsored by Crafty Sentiments designs who offered one lucky winner 3 digi images of their choice.  As always we used random.org and he chose:

Congratulations Louise, your card is fantastic.  The image is just perfect for those tricky males and the papers are fab.  Please email us and we will arrange for you to receive your prize.

Week 377–add some bling

Good morning dear crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for all your gorgeous entries for last week’s ‘anything goes’ 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 3 digi images courtesy of Crafty Sentiments Designs and we will also be finding out who I have chosen (on behalf of Kitty) as my top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Marie from Team 1, and she has given us the fantastic theme of ‘add some bling’.  Marie would simply like you to make a creation that includes some type of bling on it e.g. gems, stickles, glittery card, sequins 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 Bugaboo stamps and they are offering one lucky winner 4 digi images of their choice from their online store.  They have so many fun images to choose from you will be spoilt for choice!

Week 376–Anything goes

Happy New Year dear crafters!  We trust you all had a very Merry Christmas and are now looking forward to a happy and healthy 2017.  Hopefully if you were good girls (and boys) Santa brought you some lovely new crafty goodies to play with!  However I know there was quite a lot of illness around this year, so hopefully if you were feeling under the weather during the holidays you are starting to feel better now.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support during 2016 and we hope you will continue to support our challenges in 2017.  On the topic of challenges we had a brilliant response to our month long Mega Christmas challenge and the whole of the DT had a wonderful time visiting your blogs and seeing your amazing creations.  Don’t forget to come back later to check out the exciting bit – finding out who the lucky winners are!  As we had multiple sponsors there will be lots of lucky winners so come back this evening and see if you are one of them!

Ok onto the new challenge, which has been chosen by myself on behalf of our new DT member Kitty from Team 2 (I thought I’d be kind to her as it is her first week and take the strain this week lol!).  I’ve given you all a super easy theme to ease you back into the routine and gone for ‘anything goes’.  As the title suggests you can create anything you like as long as you use your promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, aqua markers or metallic markers.  Remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card.  Please can you help us by stating which markers you have used on your creation i.e. ‘coloured with promarkers’ etc.  Thanks x x

We are delighted to welcome the return of a sponsor to PFP after a little break – Crafty Sentiments Designs – and they are generously offering one lucky winner 3 digis of their choice.  Their images are so gorgeous you will be spoilt for choice.  Our DT were lucky enough to use some of their images on their cards this week.
