A Bit Of A Free For All :)

Hi peeps :)

I hope that you are all OK and that you had a great Bank Holiday - even if the weather wasn’t brilliant!!!

Hugest of thanks to everybody who joined in last week – your pins and needles creations were FAB  :) And hugest of thanks to everyone who expressed an interest in joining the GDT for September. I’ll be in touch with 2 of Mr Random Things lucky girlies very soon.

So who was our winner then?


Woohooo Hazel, this week it’s you chick :)

Well done to you and if you e-mail me, I’ll pass your details on and hugest thanks to Mary & Andrea at The Ribbon Girl  for sponsoring us xxx

And check out what Hazel did peeps …..

I LOVE the flowers and the stitching on the ribbon  :)

So onto this week and as it’s the last one of the month, we have a little sketchie for you. In fact, we have loads because this week it’s a

Sketchie Free For All

so all you have to do is to choose your fave PTW sketch (it has to be one of ours please) and you can use that. If you could please just add the number of the sketch you’ve chosen when you post the link back to us, it would be fandabidozeee!!!

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!!!

I wonder which ones you’ll choose?????

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

So that’s what we did and now it’s over to you, and if you get a sec, don’t forget 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.
