Things With Whiskers - Week 2
As promised last week the team have had a bit of time to have a look at the cd and have a little play, we have enjoyed making some lovely cards for you to enjoy.
The winner of this weeks cd as chosen by Randon.org is number 16
Yes Hazel that's you, please drop us a line on the email at the top of the page and I'll get your prize out to you.
This number will be taken out of the draw for next week but all others will stay in and if you enter another card that will go in too.
Jocelyn has chosen her top three from the On Safari challenge and the honours this week go to:
5. Janet Van Rossen
16. Hazel L
There is a little something for you Janet so get in touch and claim your prize.
Now at the start of the current challenge I promised you a cd for the winner but as we are running the challenge over two weeks we have decided that there will be two draws, one on Sunday this week and then another one at the end of the challenge. So if you have been over to the web site of Elegant Inspiration and had a look and fancy getting your mitts on a copy without having the shell out any of your hard earned cash then come and join us. all entries will go into both draws apart from the winner of the first week.
Good morning everyone and it's another Sunday but also another month so that means another sponsored challenge. This month we are sponsored by Elegant Inspiration, a new company with some great ideas and their new cd is proof of this. Not only are there lovely images to inspire you but there are cutting files for use with electronic cutting machines or to print and cut by hand.
Jo has given us a cd for the prize so get your thinking caps on and join us so you too could win a copy, the design team have been given a copy each but the cd's didn't get to all of the team members in time for them to do anything this week but because December is such a busy month for everyone, our challenges will be running for two weeks so we will all have something more to show you from the cd next week.
We have a new guest designer with us this month and we have the lovely Beryl who has agreed to stay with us for January too so you will get to know her quite well I think. To start her stay off with us she has written a small bio which I know you will all be interested in reading so here we go.
Hi, I am Beryl and live in the beautiful Shetland Islands, the most northerly part of the UK, in the summer we experience the most wonderful white nights , but this time of the year our days are really short. I am English and married to Robert who is Scottish, between us we have 6 children and 11 grandchildren. I have been crafting in one way or another most of my life, the usual stuff knitting, sewing, crochet. In 2000 I got my first computer and it came with a greetings card programme installed on it, and I had a play and have never bought a greetings card since. Admittedly, looking back they were a bit naff lol.
About 8 years I was bored picked up the Sky remote and did some channel hopping. I landed on Create and Craft, it had only just been launched. I watched a man from the English Stamp Company turn a dirty grey looking powder into something magical and that was it - I was hooked. By watching on a regular basis I discovered the many different ways of cardmaking, including cds. At first I wasn't too keen on cd crafting, it felt a bit like cheating, then I realised it was a wonderful resource and now I have cds all over the place, some I haven't even taken out of the packaging. I have been blogging for a few years now and enjoy taking part in various challenges. I have been taking part in CD Sunday since about March/April, and was thrilled when Christine contacted me and asked if I would like to be GD. Thank you so much for the opportunity.
I hope our efforts over the next two weeks will inspire you both to join us and to go and look at the cd, it's fab. We will start as usual with our guest and as Beryl already had a copy of the cd she has been able to use it to make her contribution.
