CRAFT Challenge 77, Using Vellum

It is still very dark while I am writing this post. A really busy week at the moment. It also feels like winter is starting to descend on us here in the UK, with needing to defrost the car windscreens before leaving for work or school.

We have some further sad news to share with you this week, one of our longer standing DT members is leaving us after this week as well. Rose has been good enough to stay with us until our new members were settled in nicely. We are going to miss you Rose with your lovely creations and knitted beauties. We wish you all the best for the future and in all you do. Do pop by to see us and to tell us how you are every now and then.

We also have some good news this week. Our current Guest DT members Julia and Karen have agreed to join us on the DT at the end of their GDT. Welcome to the team ladies!

So, now it's time to get to our challenge this week. Our subject is Using Vellum and should be rather self explanatory. We would like you to use vellum in your project.



Our sponsor this week is one of our regulars, Sew Many Digital Stamps, who are donating 5 stamps in their shop of the winner's choice. Definitely worth taking part again. Thank you for joining us as a sponsor again, Angela! Most of the team have also taken the opportunity of playing with some of their images for their creations this week.

So, over to our Guest Designers for their projects to get your crafting juices going. Some gorgeous projects from them again.








And from our DT:







Enola - junior DT


















I'm sure you'll agree the team have come up trumps again. Thank you ladies and gent! And now it's over to you, so get those creative juices flowing and show us what you've come up with. Just add your card to inlinkz and we will do our best to come and visit.

Happy Crafting!

Jo and the CRAFT Team.

CRAFT Challenge 76, Colour Palette Barry.

Morning all, a rather windy and rainy week this week so far where we are. However, that makes it even more likely we don't want to do anything but craft, right?

Thank you for joining us again last week, we had a fabulous response to our embossing challenge. Congratulations to our winner, see the post below, don't forget to claim your prize and winner's badge. This week we have a colour challenge for you again. This one is colour Barry, one of the colour palettes left behind by our good friend Eileen for use in our challenges, thank you Eileen!


So, your task is to create a project using the above colour pallete as a guide.

We also have a new sponsor this week, Glitterbabe. The prize she is offering for the winner is 2 of her stamps of the winner's choice. Stef will be joining us as a sponsor on a regular basis in 2011. Welcome Stef and thank you for joining us.





And here are some creations to give you some inspiration. First from our Guest Designers for November.








And from our DT:














Jo (me)













I hope this will give you some much needed inspiration, I'm sure you agree there are a lot of lovely creations there from the Design Team. Thank you all.

Looking forward to seeing all your lovely creations again this week. As always we will do our best to come and visit.
