winner and top 5......

So sorry to be late with my top 5 this week but we are having a new kitchen fitted and first the electric was off for a while and second the modem wasn't letting me stay online long enough to comment on any entries!

It was tough to pick a top 5 this week, so many unusual entries, it seems the challenge of no stamping really got your creative juices flowing!! 85 entries to choose from was certainly a huge job.

So without further ado the winner picked by the random doodah is number 21 Anne from Anne's crafty bits Well done Anne, please email me on and I will get your prize in the post.

My top 5 are as follows:

1 Piabau
2 Tab
3 Susie Sugar
4 Daisychain
5 Yvonne

Well done all of you ladies, please help yourselves to the top 5 banner and display it on your blogs :o) Thankyou all for taking part in my challenge everyone, can't wait to scoot round your entries to Deb's challenge this week

Challenge #17 - Something for the Boys

Hello everyone - I can hardly believe that it is my (Debs) turn to set the theme again already - time flies by so quickly!!!!

It will be my son's birthday soon and I have been trying to decide what card to make for him and thought it would be an opportunity to get some more inspiration for the dreaded male cards!!!! So I would like to see your take on something for the male/s in your life.
I will be offering the following prize for the randomly chosen winner.

  1. An unmounted Gorjuss girl rubber stamp
  2. 2 x clear stamps
  3. A packet of 6 designer brads
  4. A bag of paper flowers
  5. 6 x pots of flocking powder

I look forward to seeing all your great projects and good luck with the draw.

*****Just a quick note that last weeks winner and top 5 will be announced on Monday so pop back then to see if you have been lucky*****

Here are the fantastic projects from the very talented DT. Do check out their individual blogs for some other wonderful inspirational projects.







Could we please ask that you leave the link to your card post not your blog to make it easier for us to find your entry, to do this simply right click over your post title and paste in MR Linky :)

Thank you
