Week 287 - Milestone Birthdays

Good morning, Sarah here, thank you for all your fabulous entries last week. The winners' post is below if you haven't seen it. This week is my turn to host the challenge and as today I am celebrating a rather BIG birthday I have chosen the theme...

'Milestone Birthdays'

  By 'Milestone Birthday' I mean those extra special birthdays such as 1st, 18th, 21st, 30th, 40th, 50th etc... I will leave it to your imagination as to the one I am celebrating today ;-)

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Stix 2.

Stix 2 is the home of all your adhesive needs and much more as well, their prize is an ultimate adhesive kit, something we all need in our everyday crafting.

Here are the wonderful creations from the DT for your inspiration........



Fabulous aren't they? Hope you all have a lovely weekend and we can't wait 
to see what you create for our Milestone Birthdays challenge x

Week 286 - No design papers allowed

A very good morning to you all, Brenda here with our new theme and also a big thank you to everyone who joined in Tracy Mouse's 'Anything but a Card' theme last week, what a fabulous display of work, do check our her post below to see if you were a lucky winner or in our Top 5.

As lovely as all the design papers are which we all have a tendency to hoard, sometimes it's nice to create our own backgrounds, it's something I love doing and the inkier the better. But of course your entry need not be a card, there are so many other forms of craft you could share with us, knitting, baking, jewellery, the list goes on, so my my challenge to you this week is.....................

******No Design Papers Allowed******

We have two wonderful sponsors this week, so double the reason to join in.......................

Nicecrane Designs offer a huge range of high quality Vintage inspired design sheets and images to create and compliment all your crafting projects from cardmaking to scrapbooking. Designs range from Vintage fashion and animals to well known children's characters such as Peter Rabbit and The Water Babies with new images being added to the range on a monthly basis.

A Passion for Stamps offers a wide range of images designed by Ruth Hamilton. As the name of her store and blog suggests Ruth has a particular love of flowers and many of her designs can also be purchased as rubber stamps, punches and dies all sold under the Tonic Studios brand name.

The Design Team have been busy as usual, they never fail to amaze me with their diverse styles of crafting and again they have come up with a lovely array of inspiration to share with us........
