CRAFT Challenge 74, Monotone

Here is my DT card for CRAFT Challenge this week, Monotone. This although Rozzy very rightly pointed out it should have been monochrome instead, lol. So, basically, use one colour only. Hope you like my card, I have used Happy Harry and some papers from our sponsor Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More.

Hope you like it, thanks for looking. Have a great weekend!

CRAFT Challenge 69, Teenagers.

This is my DT card for CRAFT Challenge this week, our subject is Teenagers this week and our sponsor is Toucan Scraps, who is offering a product of the winner's choice from her shop.

Hope you like my card. For this I have used some of my mum's stamps and also some misprints from Toucan Scraps' Birthday Blue range. Printer ink had run out nearly, but it seemed a waste not to use this lovely shade of pink paper. Might be quite close to the ones in her Birthday Pink range.

I made this card for one of my friends, who had her birthday on Tuesday.

Thanks for looking, do join us again and have a good weekend.

CRAFT Challenge 68, Colouring Pencils Only.

Our challenge at CRAFT Challenge this week is called 'Colouring Pencils Only' and we want you to only use colouring pencils to colour your images this week. Some of the team felt rather deprived from their promarkers and other colouring pens, but they have still created gorgeous projects, so do go and have a look.

Our sponsor this week is the Crafty Pad Stamp Designs and Debbie has given us 2 lovely stamps to play around with for this challenge. She is also giving 2 stamps of the winner's choice from her shop to the winner of this week's challenge.

Here is my card for this challenge to provide you with some inspiration, I have used her 'Molly the Cat with Birdhouse' stamp for this card.

Hope you like the card and will join us at CRAFT Challenge this week.

CRAFT Challenge 67, Colour palette Ava's Slave.

Morning all,

Time for the next challenge at CRAFT Challenge this week, our last challenge with Eileen on board and what a challenge it is.
This week we are using one of Eileen aka Eiglas' lovely colour palettes. This one is named Ava's Slave and has some fabulous calm colours. She has even given us some backgrounds to work with. What a way to leave us in! We are really going to miss you Eileen, it has been fab working with you and I'm sure we'll keep in touch.

Our sponsor this week is Sew Many Digital Stamps and they are offering the winner 5 digital stamps of their choice. Most of the team have used some of their stamps and I would recommend you have a look at all the gorgeous projects the new DT members have come up with. We are very happy to have them on board and lucky as well I would think. 

Here is what I made, another card done for Christmas. Hope you like it. The image is Hershey the Reindeer from our sponsor. A really cute image, that I feel is ideal for a Christmas card. The papers are from Eileen.

And here is the beautiful colour palette Ava's Slave to use this week:

For more gorgeous images, why not have a look at our sponsor's shop? They have many lovely images available.
The winner this week can choose 5 of their stamps, how lucky is that?

So, get started, happy crafting! I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Blogaversary Blog Hop at CRAFT Challenge, we are 1 year old, yippee!

Wow! It doesn't seem like a year since C.R.A.F.T  Challenge was born, a lickle, new baby blog.....aaahhhhh!...........all pink and cuddly and smelling of embossing powder.....

And here we are now, a year later, lots of followers, but still having loads and loads of fun.

So, it's our birthday and we’re celebrating in suitable style by having a fun blog-hop as well as our usual Challenge which, this week, is Birthday or Celebrations. You should have arrived here from Suzi's blog.

To give you some inspiration for the challenge, here is my card for this week:

This week I have made a card using some digistamps that had already been printed by my mum as well as some scraps of papers she had. I believe some of them are from the 'Worn Well' kit by  Angela aka Toucan Scraps again,  you can find this kit and many more at her shop at 3scrapateers.

The sponsors at this stop of the bloghop are the CRAFT Team and the prize are these lovely prima flowers and some ribbons/fibres.

Read on for further details on how to win.

Your prize for the Challenge this week is a lovely set of Papermania 'Henbury Lane' DesignerPapers and accessories, including beautiful adhesive gems, gorgeous blooms and a wonderful wood-mounted rubber stamp!
Now what d'you think of that! - Fabulous eh?!

We have lots of lovely individual sponsors for our Blog Hop too!
It’s going to be a lot of fun with prizes and draws at each stop and a final winner at the end, so don’t be a square—be there! -and be in with a chance to win!

Our blog-hop order is this:-

1) You start on the C.R.A.F.T Challenge blog and you visit each Design Team Member’s personal blog and leave a comment.

2) At each stop there will be a RED word associated with crafting for you to collect

3) We’re staying with our customary alphabetical list for the team so Andrea is the next stop after the C.R.A.F.T Challenge blog.
Andrea will give you the link to the nest DTM and so on.

4) At the end, we want you to get back to C.R.A.F.T and leave us a comment with the nine words you pick up! If you can make a sentence so much the better!

Just to make it clear for you to follow - here is our DT in alphabetical order.

Tigerlover (that's me)

We're SO Looking forward to seeing who comes up with the correct sentence as we have a really fabulous new sponsor for that - QVC's Scrapbooking Expert, Rosemary Merry!

She is kindly having a good look through her stock at Crabapple Crafts to find something lovely for that clever crafter (who will be chosen from the corrrect answers by random generator) who gets the sentence right!
Now how cool is THAT!
And that is in addition to all the prizes available at our Design Team Members' own blogs! My sponsor as said is the CRAFT Team. All you need to do is leave me a comment. The winner will be chosen randomly.

Now for some serious business:

The word you are looking for on my blog is WITH and your next and last stop is CRAFT Challenge. If you get lost along the way, just return to the CRAFT Challenge blog and pick up where you left off. Don't forget to leave a comment with your sentence made of the words collected along the way at the CRAFT Challenge blog.

Enough said! So off you go! Enjoy - and have yourselves some crafty fun - it's gonna be GREAT!

And obviously: good luck to you all and have a great weekend!


Jo and Tigerlover.
