Challenge 54...A Shaped Card & Winners of our Sponsored Birthday Celebrations!

Good morning everyone...WOW!...what an incredible response we had to our first birthday celebrations last week, you took our breath away with the sheer excitement and enthusiasm shown whilst participating in the blog hop and again when posting your challenge entries on your blogs! We are so lucky to have such talented crafters take part in our challenges and the design team were blown away by your creations for the Something Sweet challenge, it certainly made our mouths water whilst we were visiting your blogs and leaving comments! The design team would like to thank each and every one of you for making our first birthday celebrations such an exciting occasion, it will certainly be something we will remember for a very long time!

You’re probably all sitting there shouting at your computers for me to get on with announcing the winners for the prizes donated by our sponsors...but firstly I have to thank our sponsors for being so generous with their prizes, our birthday celebrations wouldn’t have been quite so much fun without them!

Now...onto this week’s challenge and after the excitement of last week, we would like to see you make.....

.....A SHAPED CARD...that’s anything but a square!

This weeks challenge is sponsored by
Ildi Co.
and they are offering one lucky winner the opportunity to choose 5 free digi images from their shop

Ildiko has always been into drawing and art and her sister-in-law Jenny who has been hooked on scrapbooking and stamping since her 6 year old was born, got together and decided that starting a digital stamp company would be great fun to do together. She named it Ildi Co, as a play on words with her actual name "Ildiko". So here we are, a couple of sister-in-laws who are trying to blend our passions and make a dream come alive! Ildi Co started about a month ago and we've already been able to put together a fantastic design team, so now all we need to do is spread the word. Ildi Co will release new images every month, so be sure to watch for them!

The design team have had lots of fun with this challenge and created some amazing inspiration for you....if you want to find out how they made their cards then you can go directly to their individual blogs to find out all the details!
