Exciting news!

I just wanted to take a moment to share some exciting news with you all! The lovely Karen at Feline Playful has decided not to discontinue her challenge list after all, and has taken on a team of co-ordinators, and I am very proud to be able to say I am part of that team! Therefore I will no longer continue to update my personal list, everything will be done through Feline Playful. We have some fab upcoming plans to expland the information on offer over there so please visit the blog for all your challenge needs!

CRAFT #83 - Thank You

Hi and hope everyones been having a fantastic holiday season. I was back to work yesterday, the 4 days off went sooooo fast!

Onto our last challenge of 2010 at C.R.A.F.T, this week we'd like to see your Thank You cards! I'm sure lots of you will be needing them so why not make good use of any new crafty stash ;)

This challenge's fab sponsor is Craft Obsessions who are generously offering our winner a £10 Voucher!

I've used this very sweet LOTV cat which was sent to me a whilw ago by my lovely friend Sarah! He's coloured with Promarkers and I've used papers by Kate Knight. The sentiment is from the same paper pack, and I've embossed some purple glitter card with a cuttlebug folder, I think it's called birds and swirls or something like that! The border punch is from MS and the gems and ribbon are from stash.

Thanks for looking!

We are sponsored by the lovely Sylvies Stamps which you can find here and we'd like to see your creations along the theme of 'In with the new!'
