C.R.A.F.T 65 - Milestone Birthdays/ Anything Goes.

We have some exciting news this week!  
Well, it's a little bit bittersweet actually because the good news is we are having a DT Call so if you love C.R.A.F.T (and who doesn't?) and you fancy making the demo cards for our challenges, put fingers to keyboard and e-mail us with your details and a link to your blog, so we can have a nosey around.
The closing date will be at the end of this challenge, no more applications will be accepted after 6am on Thursday 2.9.10 (UK time).
We will aim to contact our new members on the 3rd or 4th of September.

The sad news is, we're losing about half of our team.....(...sniff...)  including me (Eiglas)....(..sniff sniff...) Andrea.....(...sniff sniff sniff...) the supertalented Julie (.....sniff ...sniffle sniffle...) and our wonderful leader for the past......well...AGE...Claire (HopeJacare)....(.....WAHHHHHH......!)

We all get on so well and work together so well as a team, it's a real bummer that life sometimes intrudes but, well, life does do that sometimes and this is one of those times.
We'll all be back now and then to do a Guest DT spot or perhaps act as a sponsor (like Claire is this week) but we're needed elswhere just now for a whole mass of different reasons.

However, back to this week!
Our theme this week is Milestone Birthdays / Anything Goes so any of the big birthdays are very welcome but if you don't have one then come up with something else that COULD be a BIG celebration.  For instance, my card was made for a very clever lad called Ben who has just got his GCSE results of 6 'A's and 6 A*'s ! What a celebration will be happening in his house tonight!

I must apologize for my photo! I'm usually so fussy over photos but I didn't have long to make this card (my customer asked me last night..!LOL!) so I was very rushed to get the piccy before the light failed this evening and I must have jogged the camera.

 Our team have done a marvellous job, especially considering for some it could be their swansong on C.R.A.F.T !

We still have our amazingly talented Guest Designer with us, take a bow  Christa!
Christa has actually used Claire's lovely image for her card and I think you'll agree it's stunning!

I know these demos will inspire you all to have a bash and get an entry in and if that doesn't work, I only have to tell you what the prize is!

I mentioned earlier that Claire (HopeJacare Doodles) is our sponsor this week...? 
Well, she has kindly proffered one of her fabulous new stamps as a prize this week! How fab is that? (I want it but team members aren't allowed.....!)

Here is her lovely 'Daisy' stamp,

which I'm sure you will all want to add to your collections!
If you aren't lucky enough to win it, you can always pop over to 'StitchyBear Stamps' and buy it! LOL! 

Look forward, as ever, to seeing what you all come up with!

The C.R.A.F.T Team!

C.R.A.F.T 64 - Photo Inspiration

This is our inspiration photo this week! 

It's not necessarily a colour challenge - although that's absolutely fine - it's whatever you are inspired by it to do! There does have to be a credible link though - no cheating please!

Our fab sponsor this week is 'Donna's Den' who always come up with a wonderful prize for our lucky winning entry, and this week is no exception!

Lovely stash prize crafters! Pop over to Donna's Den for a peek!

This week we have the rest of our team back and they're clearly refreshed by their holidays!

We again have our lovely Guest Designer, Christa who has come up with yet another lovely project.

Super projects girls - as always!

I think our scrummy photo should tickle your crafting tastebuds and have you come up with some equally scrummy projects!

C.R.A.F.T 63 - Mini Beasts (Insects)

Here at C.R.A.F.T we like to come up with unusual challenges occasionally and this week some clever-clogs has come up with 'Mini-beasts'!

This translates (..loosely..) to 'insects etc' so we hope to see some really inventive ways of showcasing those little critters in your entries.
This does need to be the MAIN FOCUS of your creation - a tiny dangling butterfly charm just won't do!

Our lovely generous sponsors this week are Craft Obsessions.
They're offering a really super prize of no less than six Promarkers, colours to be chosen by the winner! That's what I call a prize! Not only that, but they're having a fantastic sale at the moment - it's well worth popping over there for a shufti!

Our lovely Guest Designer Christa has come up with a stunning card! What lovely colours!
Thank you again Christa - it's stunning.

The rest of our team have been busy lickle bees (...excuse the pun...! LOL!) too! Thank you girls!

As always - 110% from the C.R.A.F.T team and Guest Designer.....even if half the team ARE on their jollies! LOL!!

We look forward to seeing your creations (...I think...! LOL!) over the next seven days and to picking the lucky winner of the prize!
Keep on C.R.A.F.T. ing!
The C.R.A.F.T team!
