It's Launch Day.....and The First Challenge

We hope you've all been eagerly awaiting this day as has our Fabulous Design Team and ourselves, and it's finally here.
You've all seen the wonderful prize we're offering up for the first challenge, one lucky crafter is going to receive it all......will it be you?


*************************************************************************
To get things started, we're starting with an easy theme, it's a color theme and we call it "From Dusk to Dawn" using the colors Purple and Yellow. Not a normal color scheme you see, but Wow those two colors work great with each other, they practically jump off the card at you, and if you don't believe me, take a look at the absolutely gorgeous and stunning creations the Design Team have come up with for some inspiration for you all.

So remember if you'd like a chance at winning this fabulous lot of crafting goodies, we wanna see your beautiful creations. Please post them on your blog with a direct link to the card or project (instructions on how to do this are at the end of this post), and if you'd like to enter but don't have a blog....please email us with your entry and we'll happily post it on the blog. (To email us please look on the sidebar)

So without further ado............here's what we've all been busy creating…


Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with.........HAPPY CRAFTING!



MR. LINKY SEEMS TO KEEP GOING WALKABOUT....so if he is not showing, then please leave your entry in the comments section. Sorry about the inconvenience. We are hoping he will make an appearance again.
Sorry it has taken a few hours to get Mr Linky up and running for you, but I've been away from the PC for most of today! Kimmi x

Please use Mr Linky to link to your PROJECT and NOT your BLOG... To do this, when on your own blog, click on the title to your project for this challenge. In the URL bar at the top of the page you should find your blogs unique page address for that project.. It will look like your own blog address, followed by the date and the name of your project. Copy that and then paste it into the URL bar on the Mr Linky, under your chosen name!

    Just thought I had better let you know that Mr Linky is still playing up.
