Use a digi or stamp for February

Hello and welcome to our February challenge! This month we are sponsored by Sherri Baldi and her Besties Digi Stamps.

The winner will receive each of the digis used by the Design Team. As usual the winner of the digis is chosen at random, but we will also choose 5 winners on merit who each receive a badge for their blogs.


We hope you can join in, all you need to do is use a stamp or digi somewhere on your project and link your post back to here.
Happy Crafting!

DT CALL !!! With use a Stamp or Digi Image Somewhere on your Project!



Happy November to you all! This month our challenge is sponsored by the fabulous "Art by Miran," and the prize is 3 Digis of the winners choice.

The Dt were delighted to work with three digi stamps from Miran and I love what they have done with them. For inspiration head over to the Art by Miran Etsy shop by clicking on the image below!


We also have a DT CALL for a number of places on our DT to begin with the first challenge of 2016 on January 1st!
To join our DT please add DT to your entry for this challenge. If you have tried before please try again, our requirements are:-

1. You need to have a blog and also a Facebook account (we run the group from a private FB group)
2. You will be required to produce one project each month. The themes aren't difficult and usually the sponsor will provide you with a digi image to work with (usually you get a choice as to which image you choose!) The project will need to be ready by the 28th of each month.
3. You will need to comment on challenge entries.
4. Every other month you will be asked to pick your choice of a winner and write a sentence or two about why you picked it (please click on the winners tab above if you want to see what is needed !)
5. You need to enjoy colouring as we work with digi stamps (we chose to do this so that we could work with people worldwide!)
We are a friendly group and as flexible as we can be (life does tend to get in the way of craft !) We really look forward to seeing your entries and hope to be in touch soon!

Happy Crafting,
Denyse, Isobel and CGE DT
