the prize for our Star of the Month is

$10.00 Store Gift Certificate for Digi Doodle Shop.


And now to the announcement of our Star of the Month June.

Having difficulty with our current challenge?

Not a lot of entries in the current challenge yet. I guess you are finding our colour combo a little difficult. Even the team had some difficulty in finding something to fit, lol.

Just a reminder, here is our colour combo for this week:


If you are having trouble with getting started, remember Jo has some free papers with this colour palette on her card and on her digistamp blog. There are also 2 free digis on her digistamp blog to get you started as well (as well as a little challenge). 

You can find the freebies here (papers), here (papers), here (car digi) and here (Girl and her Dog digi).

So, you really do not have any reason not to take part in this week's challenge and be in with a chance of winning one of the lovely prizes on offer. We hope to see some more entries flooding in soon.

Love,

Jo and The CRAFT Team.
