Challenge 99...Acetate & An Announcement

Good morning everyone...before we announce the details of this weeks challenge we have some news regarding the running of our lovely challenge blog...we are looking for a new owner for Cupcake as sadly Donna is unable to continue running the challenges for us each week...we very much hope that someone will want to step forward and take over the running of the weekly challenges...please see details below....closing date for Donna to receive emails is Friday 6th July!


Now on to this weeks challenge...big thanks to all the entrants who played along with last weeks 'World Cup Wonders' challenge and congratulations to our blog visitors from Spain for winning the World Cup Tournament Yesterday!

This weeks challenge has been chosen by Victoria...

***ACETATE***

The challenge is simple...all we want is for you to use acetate somewhere on your card...it could be in the form of an aperture...a card base or perhaps an embellishment...we hope you will all enjoy this challenge as much as the DT did!

Even though I love the effect of using acetate I don't always think to break it out. This card took me way out of my comfort zone and I was glad for the challenge. Thanks!

I hate to see this blog close as I was on the very first DT. I would love to take it over but cannot do it alone I am afraid

I'm keeping everything crossed in hope that someone will take over the challenge!
