Challenge 88...Don't Be Square

Good morning everyone...here we are ready and raring to go with a new challenge for you...we hope you all enjoyed last weeks St Georges Day theme and that any crafters who celebrated had a great day. Thank you to everyone who took part in the challenge and for all the beautiful red and white entries we received...Denise had a real toughie picking the Top 5 and you'll have to pop back later to see who has been chosen and also to see who has won the 3 free digi images from last weeks sponsor KLM Digi Stamps.

This weeks challenge has been set by Donna and the theme is

***DON'T BE SQUARE***

This weeks brief is to create a card or project that isn't square...NO SQUARE CARDS ARE ALLOWED...I think we all get a bit stuck in a rut sometimes and tend to reach for the square cards in our craft boxes and this challenge is the perfect opportunity to try something new...the design team have risen to the challenge brilliantly this week and they have provided some fantastic inspiration for you. Please pop over to their individual blogs if you want to find out how they made their cards/projects...you can click on their names in the sidebar to do this...they would love for you to leave a comment for them and to show your appreciation for their work!

****************************************

We are absolutely delighted to welcome The Stamping Boutique as our sponsor this week and the Cupcake design team were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with their images...thank you Tracey for your generosity...your images are a dream to work with and such a brilliant range to chose from!

"The Stamping Boutique" is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber images. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality...as well as their beautiful designs!


One lucky winner will get the chance to win 5 Digi Images or 3 Rubber Stamps...winners choice!
