Challenge 36 - Winner

Here is the announcement you have all been waiting for, sorry for the delay.

Once again there was a high standard of entries for our last challenge, making it so hard to choose a winner.
However after much consideration the Design Team have chosen: Kelly H's lovely Snowy card.

Congratulations: Kelly! Please help yourself to the winner's badge from the side bar to display on your blog.
We would also like to invite you to join the DT as a guest designer for Challenge 38 so please email us using the link in the sidebar letting us know if you would like to join us on the DT, then we can send you all the details.

Please don't be disheartened if you didn't win this time, all the entries were great and we love to see what you can do, please come along and play again, who knows; it could be you next time!

Important Announcement about closing dates

The Design Team have decided that in order to be able to decide and announce the winner a little sooner, hopefully before the next challenge is posted, that we need to close challenges one day earlier.

Therefore all entries must be in by 18:00 GMT the Saturday evening before the next challenge begins (Sunday) which still gives everyone 13 days to come and join in.

We look forward to seeing your interpretation of this sketch and are happy to accept any form of altered art, scrapbook pages as well as cards. Feel free to rotate the sketch, invert it or use it in any way you wish, just so long as we can still see the sketch within your work. We also have a guest designer on the team, Debbie, who won Challenge 34 with her gorgeous card. We had some great entries for Challenge 35 recipe and the winner will be announced later this evening or tomorrow.
