Week 642 πŸ•πŸπŸ¦“ Any 'Real' animal or creature

Good morning, Brenda here with our new theme and my choice is......

******Any REAL animal or creature******

That gives a pretty wide choice, wild and domestic animals, flying insects and birds to mention a few, but no teddy bears and fictional creatures such as Unicorns and Dragons which will not be eligible for the prize!

Our sponsor this week is Stamp Addicts offering a £15 store voucher......



Stamp Addicts is a family run business based in Bedfordshire and have been in business since 1992. We have watched the popularity of rubber stamping and all papercrafts steadily increase over time and now manufacture our own branded rubber stamps which frequently feature on Hochanda TV as well as craft shows across the UK.

Some wonderful inspiration from the Design Team as always, thank you girls......

A Challenge for Kath winners and Top 5

Good afternoon everyone, we have had a really fabulous week remembering our crafty friend Kath, some really beautiful entries.

Kath was the Queen on paper piecing and I know she would have been absolutely thrilled that so many of you went that extra step to use the technique on your work. Kath's family have been looking at the entries and it has meant a lot to them reading all the lovely comments about her. It was a special week for us all and we thank you so much for helping us remember her through her love of craft.

Now onto our winner and Top 5, there are quite a few prizes, several thanks to the generosity of crafting friends of Kath, something I am sure she would have been very humbled by. I am not listing out the names against actual prizes, it will be very much a lucky dip as I work my way through them.

Entry No 33 is Pauline
Entry No 48 is Sarn
Entry No 3 is Alice
Entry No 21 is Marjut
Entry No 55 is Pam
Entry No 62 is Valerija
No 63 is Tina
Entry No 43 is Lorraine

Now for my Top 5, an extremely difficult task as every single entry was fabulous......

No 21 Marjut
No 32 Sona
No 37 Lynne
No 39 Mari

Well done everyone and again our thanks for making this weeks challenge special.

Week 641 🌺 A Challenge for Kath

Good morning everyone, Brenda here with this weeks challenge which is a rather special one and we are hoping lots of you will join us in remembering our DT Kath and celebrating her style of craft.

Kath had chosen the theme for this week months ago, she was always so organised and would choose themes and prepare her work weeks and sometimes months in advance. The them she had chosen was Favourite Stamps, so we are sticking with that and adding an option to include her love of paper piecing and flowers, something all who knew her associated with her pretty creations......

****Favourite Stamps with the option of Paper Pieced Flowers****

We have several prizes, the first a floral Woodware stamp from Craft Stash, one of Kath's favourite places to shop.

Next a winners choice of four digital images from Ruth Hamilton Design

A £12 voucher for digital images from the winners choice of store. It has been been kindly donated by one of Kath's crafting friends, she did not want to be named but wants to help make this a special challenge, thank you for your kindness.
  
Canary Bird Rose was Kath's favourite Chocolate Baroque stamp, this will be for a winner who follows the Paper Pieced Flowers option.

Kath loved her DP's so there had to be some for a prize, this is an 8x8 pad. Kath was an avid 'collector' of it and always vowing not to buy more, but we all know that story!


Another prize also donated by a friend of Kath's who also wished to remain anonymous, our thanks to you for being so thoughtful.
And yet another prize of a set of SU stamps called 'Happiest of Days', again from a friend of Kath's, you crafters really as all so very kind and Kath would have been so taken back to realise how much she meant to so many of us.


The prizes keep coming, I am overwhelmed by peoples kindness and I know Kath would have been as well, another of her friends would like to send some ribbons to another winner.

Ruth our Resident Guest Designer and one of this weeks sponsors joins us again with a pretty card using her Cosmos.


And here is the inspiration from our lovely Design Team. Kath had a particular love of Woodware, Penny Black and Chocolate Baroque stamps, especially florals and the team have incorporated those into their creations so beautifully this week, I know Kath would have been very appreciative of the time and love put into each of them......

Both paper pieced using Canary Bird Rose and Life is so Much Better
Penny Black Whispers
Penny Black 3602K Dotted Petals

Myself and the Design Team are looking forward to visiting all your entries and send our thanks in advance to everyone who joins in.
