A New Challenge chosen by Jocelyn

Hello again can't believe it's the weekend again and I'm here to test you with another challenge, this week it's the turn of Jocelyn and she has chosen Fine Plumage as her topic for this week.

Now last week we had a sponsored challenge and I know it's half term so there weren't as many entries so those of you who did enter have an even better chance of winning. Ooh La La very kindly offered us a cd for the winner but the best part is you get to choose your own so who is the lucky person this week?  Well I nipped over to and popped in the numbers and the winner came out as number 5, yes Michelle that seems to be you so please get in touch with your choice of cd and we will pass the details over to the team at Ooh La La.

OK this week we loved the challenge and some of us took the obvious route and used images of birds but not all so have a look and hopefully you will be able to take a bit of inspiration from our work and get crafting to join in.  We still have the talented Wynn with us so as we usually do when we have a guest we will start with her offering.

 Ooh La La - 'Carnival of Colour' CD for card and easel stopper.

That's the teams ideas for this week, you will notice if you're a regular that we are a couple short this week. Caz is taking a bit of a break as her hubby is poorly and home life takes priority over everything and Christine has just come home from Spain and although the broadband service was working perfectly when left it is now playing up and she can't upload her card this week, I do hope the rest of the team have done enough to keep you all happy.

We look forward to visiting your Blogs but in the meantime here is our usual little reminder......

Please link to your post and not your blog, I know we say this every week but we still have people who link to the blog which means we have to trawl through posts to find the entry at times.  Please, please use something from a CD somewhere in the making of your project and give the CD credit. We still get the odd entry that has not had a CD used in the making and although they are lovely to see they won't be considered for receiving any prizes on offer and the team will not visit to comment.
Finally the most important bit - Have Fun!
