Challenge #157 - The Letter 'B"

Hello to all our fabulous followers!
Can you believe it is Sunday already?
Where does the weekend go? 

We have some house keeping issues today that we need to take care of so please  grab a pen & paper or your diary and take note of some new adjustments.

First things first, there is always so many stunning creations each and every week that the DT all have such a hard time selecting only 3 to be in our Top 3 :(
So some exciting news is ...
We are now going to extend this out to a TOP 5!
Secondly, the winners and the TOP 5 will now be posted on the following Thursday after the challenge has closed though :( We are sorry to make you wait, but you all do such amazing work and put in a great effort, that picking the TOP entries is always such a tough decision for us and we need a little extra time.

The winners of last weeks challenge, #156 Spring Colors, will be posted this Thursday at 8am GMT.  By the way, there were 2 prizes last week so be sure to pop the date in your calender and come back to see if you were a lucky winner, or if your creation made the TOP 5 for this week!

I think that is enough housekeeping for one day so let's get on with the really exciting stuff and the reason you are all here!. 
This weeks challenge ! 

This week our challenge for you all is 
#157 - The Letter 'B"
We want to see things that start with the letter 'B' on your creation or as one of the main focuses of your image.  I can think of a few things just off the top of my head to start you all; bubbles, blue, button(s), bling, bows, ball, boy, and I am sure you all can all think of some more!

This week you are all playing for a super duper prize of a
£10 voucher to spend in the online store at 
Crafty Emma's!  

 Thank you Crafty Emma's!  

The DT girls have all been playing with the recently released Lulu Blowing Bubbles available from The Craft Pad Designs HERE, and I think you would have to agree with me that they have all done an amazing job with this gorgeous girl! 

Let's start off the inspiration from our Guest Designer for February.
Please give a warm welcome to ... :)
Deonna from For The Love Cardmaking   
She is 'B'lowing  us away with her 'B'irthday 'B'ubble wishes!

Dawn is leaving us 'B' - Breathless this week with her 'B'eautiful blonde in a blue dress blowing bubbles with the butterflies while she rides her bike amongst the bows!

 Love the little bike charm Dawn used, isn't it just a darling?

Diane is B-blowing us away with her Buttons and Bows! 
I love the great color scheme with this card too!

And I (Leesa aka The Navy Wife) have a bounty of bows, bling, bubbles, birthday and busy to try and 'B'-dazzle you all into playing along with us this week. 

The rules are all still the same, you may enter as many times as you like (so long as your creation meets our challenge theme), and you may combine your challenge with as many others that you can find that your creation fits the theme with.

A Crafty Pad image is not required to play along, but we do love to see them so please show them if you have them! (Using a TCP image scores you an extra number in the random prize draw)  For all of us who love our TCP images, stayed turned to this blog for something extra special for you all  in the next coming days ;)
The challenge will close as usual on Saturday at 8pm GMT 
Good luck everyone and we look forward to seeing your 
'B' - beautiful creations this week.
See you all here on Thursday for the announcement of the winners from last weeks challenge #156 Spring Colors
