Week 395–tag it

Good morning lovely crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week and thank you for all the lovely comments you left for us, it’s nice to know you still enjoy the challenges after all these years.  Thank you for all your gorgeous entries for last week’s ‘special anniversary challenge’ which was the fab BINGO board.  As always it was lovely to see your wonderful creations and the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs.  Please remember to come back later as we will be announcing all our lucky winners but there will be no top 5 passionista just for this one week. 

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Lorraine C. from Team 2, and she has given us the fantastic theme of ‘tag it’.  Lorraine would simply like to see a tag on your creations this week. or you could make a tag card or even individual tags.  Remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card.  As always to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products (promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, aqua markers or metallic markers) and of course follow the theme.  Please can you help us by stating which Letraset products you have used on your creation i.e. ‘coloured with promarkers’ etc.  Thanks x x

Our generous sponsor this week is Cowling & Wilcox and they are offering one lucky winner a 12 pack of Promarkers (steam punk set). 

Cowling & Wilcox Ltd. was born in London in 1960 and has been going strong supplying the very best art products for nearly 60 years. To this day, they maintain their original concept of providing specialist fine and graphic art materials at exceptional prices, and they’re devoted to upholding this mission statement as they expand and evolve into the future.  Check out their current ‘Winter Sale’ on the website for some amazing deals.  They also are selling off their Letraset branded Promarkers at amazing prizes, grab them here before they sell out!

For last week’s challenge we were sponsored by The Paper Shelter who offered one lucky winner a $10.00 gift certificate to spend in their online store.  As always we used random.org and he chose:

Week 394–Special Anniversary challenge!

*** WARNING – LONG POST ***

Grab a cuppa and a biscuit (or two) and make yourself comfortable!

Good morning dear crafters. We hope you had a wonderful week last week and managed to fit some crafting into your busy schedules.  Thank you for your gorgeous entries to last week’s "make it bloom" challenge.  Marie will certainly have her work cut out for her when she has to pick her top 5 passionista.  Don't forget to check back later to find out who she has chosen and also to see if you are the lucky winner of the $10.00 gift certificate courtesy of The Paper Shelter.

Onto this week's theme and we have a very special challenge for you this week as it's our 8th Anniversary. Can you believe it's been 8 years since Gina and myself started our little blog to share our love of all things Letraset/Winsor & Newton?  It only seems like yesterday when we nervously made our first post!  As it's a special challenge we have a really fab theme for you of "BINGO", you can create anything you like as long as you follow a line on the bingo board either horizontally, vertically or diagonally.  You could even show off and go for a full house (Hazel nearly succeeded but she forgot the kraft card!!).  Please note we are only accepting a maximum of 3 entries per person for this one challenge only.  To be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton/Letraset products (i.e. pro, flex, tria, aqua, metallic or neon markers) and of course follow the theme. 

Here is the BINGO board to use for your inspiration this week:

Stunning cards as always I’m sure you’ll agree.  Please remember for this challenge we will only accept 3 cards/projects per person.  Also just for this one week we will not be choosing a top 5 passionista as we have lots of extra winners, however this will go back to normal next week.  We hope you have a brilliant week and we cannot wait to see what you create.  Good luck!

Hugs, Denise, Gina & DT x x
