Challenge 24 - Christmas in August

What a fantastic princess party we all had last week. There are so many beautiful princess images out there and we had some really original takes on the theme. Fabulous work from all of you!

The winner of last weeks challenge and the Simon Says Stamp! beautiful stamp set from their exclusive range is:

Congratulations Pops! Please contact us at CreativeCardCrew@gmx.co.uk and we will arrange for your prize to reach you.

This weeks challenge was set by the fabulously talented Paula and she has chosen:

CHRISTMAS IN AUGUST

Paula sure knows how to pick the challenges so that we get ourselves organised and avoid that last minute rush.

We have 2 fabulous sponsors this week so that means 2 people will be winners.


Our first Sponsor is:

who are offering a C.C. Designs stamp set or 3 singles of your choosing as the prize.
How fantastic is that!
Please click on the banner to head off to their site.

The second sponsor is:


and what a fab Christmassy prize she has given. Woo Hoo! A hot off the press Christmas popcorn bear stamp set and some Christmas charms.




Well we better let you get on with some crafting so that you can enter to win one of these fab prizes.

But first here is a little inspiration from our wonderful DT:

Donna (Guest Designer)

Paula

Nicola

Now to some sad news. The wonderfully talented Tasha is leaving our little team to be able to spend more time with her family. You will be sorely missed Tasha, you have been a driving force in this challenge and have worked so hard behind the scenes. We hope you enjoy your time with Millie. Take care hunny!

Please leave comment leaving a direct link to your card. The code can be found in the sidebar but please be aware you cannot be copy and paste it as it is a picture.

  62. Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand
    out. Please let me know where you got your theme.

    Thanks
