Time For A Sketch Plus Some News :)

Hi peeps and hope that you are all OK and having a nice week :)

Hugest of thanks to everybody who joined in last week – what a cute collection of critters there were :)

Thanks also to those peeps who expressed an interest in joining our GDT for October – I’ll be in touch shortly with Mr Random Thing’s chosen girlies :)

So who was our winner then?


Woohoo , this week it’s you Coops :)

Well done chicksie and if you e-mail me I’ll pass your details onto Wendy and hugest of thanks to  Digital Delights for sponsoring us xxx

And check out Coops’s sweet card peeps …..

… how totally cute is that bear!!!

So onto this week and as it is the last challenge of the month, as always we have a sketch for you ….

… and here it is.

As always, please feel free to resize, flip and rotate the elements - as long as you can still see the sketch, it’s completely fine so fill yer boots!!!

And of course, as it’s the last challenge of the month, we are sponsored by those fabulous people across the pond.

Yes it’s the one and only

Welcome to Papertake chick, we are so happy that you have joined us and we cannot wait to se what you make xxx

There’s also some more news … next week

So that’s what we did and now it’s over to you, and if you get a sec, don’t forget if you get a sec to check out our individual blogs and see what else we have been up to.

As always, could we ask a huge favour peeps please.

Could you help to make our job at leaving comments easier by turning off comment verification and enabling comment moderation instead please pretty please xxxx. It’s ever so easy to do – see our sidebar – and you won’t get spam comments as you can easily reject the comments that you don't want to appear. And also, can we remind you nicely that’s it’s fine to combine challenges but please, no back linking. We hope you understand that it’s only fair to those who make a new card xxx

And also, can I just give you a nice gentle reminder to ask if you could make sure that you link your card and not your blog when using good old Mr Linky please my lovelies. It makes life so much easier for our DT if they don’t have to go searching for your cards.

Thanks ever so muchly – we really do appreciate it xxx

Also just to let you know that sometimes it is not possible for the Design Team to leave a comments on every entry, with these Blogger issues that some of us are having at the mo – grrrrrr what a nightmare. But please be assured that we do stop by and we are doing our best and every single eligible entry goes into the draw for our prizes even if we don’t manage to leave you a comment.

Thanks peeps for bearing with us.

Hugs from all of us to all of you xxx<
