Week 400–Winner & Top 5 Passionista

Hello again friends, I am really sorry for the late post tonight but my silly computer decided to do a really long update just when I needed it – why do they always do them at the most inopportune time?  Anyway enough moaning, I’m back to announce our lucky winner and top 5 passionista for last week’s “sketch” challenge.  Unfortunately it wasn’t the most popular challenge ever but as always it was fantastic to see your lovely entries and the DT had a wonderful time visiting your blogs and seeing your gorgeous creations.  We’ll be announcing my top 5 passionista in a minute but firstly let’s find out who our lucky winner is!

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

We hope you all have a wonderful week and find some time to enter our current challenge ‘sporting occasions’ – full details in the post below.

Week 401–sporting occasions

Good morning lovely crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for your gorgeous entries for last week’s ‘sketch’ challenge.  Not too many entries last week but as always it was lovely to see your wonderful creations 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 win the 3 digi images courtesy of Ppinkydolls and we will also be finding out who I have chosen as my top 5 passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Donna from Team 2, and she has given us the fantastic theme of ‘sporting occasions’.  It is as simple as it sounds!  Donna would like you to create something that includes an image of something sporty.   Unfortunately Donna has been quite poorly for the last few weeks so she is not able to participate in her challenge therefore I will be choosing the top 5 on her behalf.  We are sending healing vibes to Donna for a speedy recovery.  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 Little Miss Muffet stamps and they are offering one lucky winner a $6.00 voucher to spend in their online store.  Their images are so much fun and all of the design team were lucky enough to use LMMS images on their cards this week.

Week 400–sketch

Good morning dear crafters, I hope you all had a wonderful week.  I hope you are all coping with the high temperatures at the moment.  I know I’m a killjoy but it’s a little too hot for me, especially in work.  I’ll be moaning it’s too cold/wet next week I expect haha!  Thank you for your gorgeous entries for last week’s ‘add a sentiment’ challenge, I knew it was going to be a popular one and you didn’t disappoint.  As always it was lovely to see your wonderful entries and the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs and seeing our gorgeous creations.  Please remember to come back later as we will be announcing our lucky winner who will receive the $12.00 voucher courtesy of Bugaboo stamps and we will also be finding out who Linda has chosen as her top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which was originally chosen by Ali from Team 1 before she stepped down from the DT.  As she is not here any longer I will be taking over her challenge this week.  Ali chose to give us an awesome sketch to work with this week.  As long as we can see the basics of the sketch you are free to interpret it as you see fit.  Here is the sketch:
