Challenge 1 - Anything Goes

The first Crimbo Crackers challenge is here!! A nice and easy theme for you this fortnight:

Anything Goes

So as long as its Christmas or Festive related then it can be entered! Any type of crafting is accepted not just papercrafting.

I have a very fantastic sponsor for our first challenge and the prize is so special that I can't show it to you!! The prize for one lucky entrant is a copy of the not yet released Funky Hand cd - the fifth cd from the Papercraft Factory series. The cd is set to be launched on Saturday 5 November but you saw it here first! UPDATE!! YOU CAN PRE-ORDER YOUR COPY - CLICK HERE!

Even though I can't show the actual prize, I can show you some of the papers from Twelve Crafters Crafting!

All the papers and digi images you see here are from the cd - for more details on how my Three Wise Kings have been made, pop over to my blog.

And here are all three together!

If you want another way to win a copy of this fantastic Twelve Crafters Crafting cd then check out Anice's blog on Saturday as Funky Hand and the Funkettes are having a blog hop! Each of us will be showcasing one of our Twelve Crafters Crafting samples so you won't want to miss out!

Good luck with the challenge - the rules are below - deadline is Wednesday 9 November at 12noon GMT. There is only me to comment on your entries so don't be upset if I'm a little tardy - I'll get there in the end!

The three winners from the pre launch blog candy will be announced next Thursday - so don't forget to check back to see if you were lucky!

  9. Hi Ruth

    Sorry not been by before now - but i've been concentrating on my DT cards for FH - the ONE DT I'm on... how on earth you do it will remain a mystery to me LOL. As the saying goes... give a busy person a job and they'll always find the time. I was the same before ahherm,,. UKW.

    Anyway, wishing you every success with this blog and hope it lives up to any expectations you may have - seriouslyl all the luck in the world is sent your way, but I'm pretty sure you won't need it. This is something that i'd love to take part in once I get going and get the launch of the CD and my samples done for C&C out of the way... Making my CCards is next on my (long) list of things to do.
