Please click HERE for our 2 week competition - ending 8th November.

Hi there and happy Sunday everybody. I hope you all enjoyed your bonfire nights and everybody stayed safe. Thanks to all of you that entered our Friendship challenge last week. There were some beautiful cards but our winner this week is #37 Tracy MacDonald.

Congratulations Tracy, it's a really stunning card. Click on Contact Us and email Debbie and she will sort your prize out for you, and don't forget to take your winners badge too.

Our top 3 are:
#2 Zulma with her smashing bag and matching card.
#3 Coops with her 'gorjuss' Christmas card.
#19 Jennifer Skull for her beautiful verse card.

Well done ladies. Super work, so please take your top 3 badge from the sidebar.

This week our challenge is paper piecing - NOT piercing, so we'd like to see your images made up using different papers as well as your colouring. We have two lovely sponsors this week. LETRASET

who are offering a pack of grey Promarkers, and CRAFTY RIBBONS

who will be offering a selection of ribbons.

This week, the design team all used the image 'Sammy Scarecrow' available from THE CRAFTY PAD DESIGNS. He's a real cutie!

The challenge will close as always, next Saturday at 8.00pm UK time.

All the links for the Design Teams blogs are in the sidebar (or you can click on their names above the pics) so please go and have a look to find out exactly how they have created their projects and leave them some love. :o)

Email entries are welcome. Email using the Contact Button and they'll be popped into the post for you. It's lovely to see that almost everybody has that dratted word verification off now. It really does make life easier for all design team members. Thank you. Please link directly to your post and not just your blog. Thanks.

That's it then. Over to you. Enjoy, and as always we look forward to seeing your work.
