Creating with colour! (Include your favourite colour)

Hello, and welcome back. Your entries last month were fantastic, we have four winners who were chosen and one picked at random. Please click on the winners tab at the top of the page to see if you have won!
Our method of choosing a winner is simple, all of the design team choose their favourites, which are sifted down according to the number of entries we have. Then Isobel and /or I, pick the winners, from the entries that the DT put forward. We think this is a fair way of choosing as it allows for different tastes (12 to be precise!)
This month we are asking you to, "Include your favourite Colour", your project can be any media as long as you include your colour choice!
We are sponsored this month by the fabulous Kenny K and we have two prizes, both are for two digis of choice from the Kenny K website and one will be chosen at random and the other on merit!

I have to say (proudly!) that I think the DT have absolutely knocked this challenge out of the ballpark, every DT piece is absolutely FANTASTIC!

Happy Crafting!

Using a stamp or digi stamp anywhere on your project!!!

Hello everybody, March is with us already, I know February is a short month but time is flying this year already!
Thank you all for your fabulous entries for challenge #2. The winners are announced on our winners ' page (see tabs at the top of the page).
So this month as the title suggests, we would like you to include an element of your project which is stamped or digi stamped, it doesn't have to be the main focus of your project there just has to be a bit of stamping somewhere on it! (if it isn't obvious please point it out!)
You must, however only enter a maximum of three times and there must be a working link to our Challenge on your blog post. All rules are in the side bar, please read them as we are drawing winners who aren't eligible which seems such a shame!
As always we have a lovely sponsor who is offering a fabulous prize ... GLAMOUREYES are offering the winner (drawn at random) 5 digi stamps and also a surprise clear stamp!

Check out the Glamoureyes shop there are some fab products in there :)
We will also choose a top three who win a blog badge.
The DT were given free range this month and worked from their own stamps so we have a good variety of inspiration for you!
Looking forward to your entries,
Happy Crafting,
Denyse, Isobel  and the Design Team x

Challenge #2 - Add a Gem, or glitter, or Candi or any bling you fancy!!!

Thank you all so much for your amazing entries for Challenge #1 the results have been added to our winners page (see tab above). Congratulations to everybody who entered as all the entries were FABULOUS!!!

So on to our second challenge, which is sponsored by the fabulous Janice at Scrapper's Delights. The prize is 3 Digi stamps of your own choice  from the Scrapper's Delights Store.

This month's theme is to add a bit of Bling... simply add  one of the following, a gem, or glitter, or Candi or any Bling you like. Of course you can add lots of bling, but that choice is yours, a single gem complies with the rules :)


Please check the rules in the side bar and remember only three entries and they must be linked to the challenge.

Once again the DT have produced fabulous work with the stunning digis that are available from Scrapper's Delights.

Happy Crafting,
Denyse, Isobel and the CGE Team xxx

Anything goes Challenge #1 - Happy New Year, Happy New DT !

Well hello to you all and a very Happy New Year to you. Here at Cards Galore the New Year brings big changes. After two years of fabulous leadership the lovely Debbi Powell has stepped down from running the challenge blog to pursue new and exciting opportunities. Similarly all of the DT, except for Isobel and myself, have decided to step down, so we have a new Challenge DT and a new name, Cards Galore Encore!

To celebrate the start of our new Challenge we have some new information and a new Challenge. The rules for Challenges are as follows
1. New projects only no back linking

3. You may enter any number of challenges alongside ours.
4. Please link to our challenge and comment on your choice if appropriate (eg. Bingo challenges, Inspiration ones etc)
5. Please link to your specific entry NOT your blog in general.
6. If you have a blog which requires email details to comment, or has a Captcha code, we might not be able to comment, but will try!
7. Have fun, fun, fun!!!

Now on to the good bit... PRIZES!!!! Each month there will be a prize which will be chosen by a random number generator. There will also be a badge for the top three entries which are chosen.

Did I win? We will have a new page listing our prize winners for the year, you can check if you have won on the day that the new challenge begins. Details of how to claim will be on the prize winners page. Please claim any prizes within 7 days.
