Challenge 49 - Christmas

Wowser! Thanks to all you wild things who came to play! Oh my you're animals! The lot of you... even the one with the cute worm on! Well it is an animal isn't it? Absolutely beautiful. I can say on behalf of the Gorjussettes and myself (oh how swanky sounding is that?) that its fab to see you all come and play with us. Now as you're reading this yours truly, that's moi is off on her jollies and experiencing some serious sun! Oh and golf oh and purely for research purposes I may be involved in a teeny tiny amount of stash acquisition..... Well what's a girl to do when such havens of stash are on her doorstep? Yup go in and spend is the answer!

So enough of me gloating.... Is it raining?

This week our challenge is really helpful - its Christmas! I know we all need help to get ahead with all those cards. Well I do for sure! It'll make a change for me not to make and send on the same day, oh and pray the glues dry! ~blushes~

This week we're kindly sponsored by Cupids Clear Stamps - they have some lovely images and are a treat to stamp with. This week the winner is Vicky email me please with the challenge number in the title;))

So as usual the Gorjussttes have been fantastic;

As usual please enter by our good friend Mr Linky, he's being quite good recently.....I do hope its not a mistake to say that!

Challenge 48 - Wild Thing

Howdy there peepsters! Rawrrr!!!! Oh that's just me being wild, bear with me, oh another animal pun! Gee how do I do it? Or why? ;)) More of that shortly. So are you in winter mode? Seems we are in my neck of the woods. Oh not forgetting the rain, the high winds... oh its been delightful.... NOT! Oh and pretty chilly too.

So MASSIVE thanks to our players from last week - it seems lots of you are partial to the odd flower or two as well as me. Well as I said last week I tried to resign from the DT just so I could enter.... they were having none of it though, I mean I'd have come back this week ;)) So I threw all the names into the RPT and boy did he groan! He chugged and churned and he picked Susie Sunshine (how I wish it was!) If you email me your details I'll pass them on and then you'll be the lucky recipient of that floral lushness courtesy of Wild Orchid Crafts Lucky you!

So this weeks challenge, you recall well if you aren't asleep yet you will my references to animals? Well this week we want to see an animal on your card. I know its called wild thing but we'll accept any animal. My own personal animals have their wild moments for sure! This week we're kindly sponsored by Crafters Companion. A £10 voucher for you to treat yourself with - I know you're worth it ;))

Well I'm sure I've rabbited (another animal joke there!) on enough.
