CRAFT Challenge 70, Fancy Floral

Good morning crafters!

It's Thursday again and that means another challenge from us. We hope you enjoyed the last one. I always find it a little tricky to come up with good cards for teenagers, but we saw some great cards from the DT and you certainly rose to the challenge as well.

Before we go over to today's challenge we have some rather sad news. Another one of our DT members has decided that this is the time for her to leave the nest as well. Suzi has been creating with us for the last year or so and we are certainly going to miss her. This week's challenge is going to be the last one that she will be sharing with us. The good news however is that she is continuing in blogland as per usual. She has quite a few other DT jobs to deal with, and unfortunaly she has had to make some difficult choices.
We are all going to miss you Suzi, but wish you all the best for the future and we are sure we'll see you around. We have loved working with you and would like to thank you for all the wonderful friendship and inspiration you have given to the team. Don't be a stranger now!

So, down to today's challenge. It is called Fancy Floral and this means we want you to use fancy florals on your projects, diecuts, papers, we can't wait to see what you come up with.

Our sponsor this week is one of our valued regulars Diecut Dreams. The prize this week is  very appropriately a bumper pack of 100 freshly cut flower diecuts.


Here is the wonderful Guest Designer project that Susie Sugar from Diecut Dreams Crafts has made for us this week:




And here is what the team has created this week:

Enola (junior DT)






Jo (me)







Suzi
(and what a gorgeous creation to leave us with, don't you think?)

I'm sure you'll agree there are some fabulous creations from the team again. We are looking forward to seeing your fabulous creations. Happy Crafting!

Jo and the CRAFT team.

CRAFT Challenge 68- Colouring Pencils Only.

Good morning crafters!

It's Thursday again and that means another challenge from us.

Over the last few weeks we have seen quite a few changes taking place. Some of our very valued and talented DT members have left us and we will miss them all. I would like to thank them for all the hard work and commitment they have put into the challenge during the time with us as well as the friendship they have shown us all. We wish them all the best for their future and hope they will occasionally pop by and let us know how they are.

However last week we also introduced you to some of our new DT members, and what an entrance they made! There were some amazing projects they showed us, I'm sure you will agree. We are sure to see more of their fabulous work from them here on CRAFT Challenge.
Jacky will be joining us this week for the first time as well.

So, down to today's challenge. It is called Colouring Pencils Only and this means we want you to only use colouring pencils for your images. Some of our DT felt a little out of their comfort zone on this challenge and  really missed their promarkers. Others even had to beg their children to use their colouring pencils, lol.

Our sponsor this week is one of our valued regulars The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs. The prize this week is the winner's choice of two of her stamps. If you can't wait to go and play with her gorgeous stamps, she gave the team 2 stamps to play with for this challenge, why not go and have a look at her shop and buy some of her very reasonably priced stamps.



And here is what the team has created this week:
