Another fabulous response to our last challenge and your creations just get better and better every week. We have all loved visiting your blogs again this week - you give us all so much inspiration and help to make us better crafters too.
You may have noticed a new badge down on the sidebar. This is especially for our weekly overall winners, so if you have won one of our challenges, please feel free to collect your badge to display on your blog. Talking of winners, lets get on shall we.
Our overall winner this week that gets the winners badge, 3 digis, the set of summer promarkers and a GDT spot with us here in a couple of weeks is..................

Well done hun and can you please email me on with your snail mail addy so I can send you your promarkers ASAP and to get you your choice of digis from the store and arrange your GDT spot. I will be away for a couple of days from Monday but I will get in touch with you as soon as I am back.
Next our Top 3 which get the "I made top 3" badge in no particular order are
1.   Sandy O
2.   Denise
3.   Heidi-Mari

Well done to each and every one of you. Now onto our challenge this week. We'd like to see some new stuff on whatever you choose to make. Remember you can make anything you like - don't be restricted to just cards. Now then this NEW stuff can be papers, ribbon, flowers, a stamp. If you are altering something, then that could be new too.
Now for your inspiration this week we have some lovely varied projects from the girls - these guys make me so proud to be associated with them as they pull it out the hat every week and surprise me every time. Now they'll tell you on their blogs what the new item/s is or are, so unless you like guessing games I'd suggest giving them a little visit if you get the chance.

Well as I said earlier, I'm away for a couple of days camping with my hubby, my little girl, our dogs and several of our friends, so I'm either going to be completely relaxed or totally stressed when I get back. So, I'd like you lovely bloggers and challengers out there to leave a link with our linky widget, so I have something to look forward to, one way or the other.
Take care now.

Hello all you lovely lot out there. I hope you are enjoying this sun that we have got here in the UK at the minute. Yes I'm back after a much needed break (my fault - no-one elses) and many thanks go to Stitch and the girls for holding the fort and I'm now as organised as I'm ever going to be (not very, but 100% more than I was lol). Anyway I hope you all enjoyed our little challenge last week of making anything but a card. Fabulous entries as always and I'm so glad the RNG is choosing for me because I just couldn't in a million years. So without further ado I shall announce the winners.

Wow, can you believe another week has come and gone!!!  Here we are at week 13 already...I want to start out apologizing for not making it to each and every one of these beautiful creations to leave some love - was dealing with major issues on the other side of the crafting world lol...But I want you all to know, I appreciate every single entry that comes through these pages...This is most definitely "my happy place" ;)
Ok, now what you all been waiting for...What we gonna do this week??  Well, we decided that we would love to see ANYTHING BUT A that's not that we don't love all your beautiful cards, it's just that we know you can come out of the box and make some beautiful creations!!!  So let's see them crafty juices fly this week...
Our lovely and talented Stef (most of you know her by Glitterbabe) is going to be our sponsor this week...Here is what she had to say:
Hi.  My name is stef h.  you may have seen me in blogland where I am known as glitterbabe.  Sometimes, the lampshade lady!  Don’t matter.  I answer to both – lol.  i have been a crafter going on 10 years now and am still trying to figure out where the time has gone.  I was introduced to stamping back in 2001 when I was invited to my very first stampin up party.  And, as they say, the rest is history.  I am married to a wonderful man going on 17 years. He is my best critic and pushes me to my limits. When he heard all the talk about digital stamps he encouraged me to “doodle”.  After many hours of practice I decided to put my “doodles” out there and opened my shop.  I strive for quality product and work hard to give my very best.  I have tons of fun with it and I hope you do too!
You can find Stef's stuff at I DID IT CREATIONS among sever other places...I will be having the privilege of working with her more closely when I get the time to move some of my stuff over there too...The owner of that store Robyn, is also one of our creator's here at StitchyBear's and she has built one awesome site over there and has invited me to join her too...
So, now you know what we been doing and you know what we want YOU all to do, shall I tell you who is last week's winner and top 3 now??? lol
Our winner was chosen with our ever faithful Random Generator and here is what SHE told us lol

The multi-talented Jeri is our Winner of last week's challenge!!!
Congratulations girl - you not only have the most awesome blog I have ever visited hehe, but your talent is beyond words...give me a shout and I will get ya your prize from last week's challenge..and of course will be looking forward to you being our GDT!!!

As for the top 3, this one was really hard to do...I wish I could change that number to 71 lol, everything I seen was just amazing...but finally we pin pointed it down to 3 lucky ladies..


Ladies, please if you like, grab our badge from the sidebar...and because it's been such a rough week and I feel like something good has GOT to come out of this...please email me with your choice of one of my stamps, just for kicks and grins ;))) lol

Tell me how this is, my first time I get to post the challenge and I loose my bloomin' electric for 24 hours lol...So I apologize for all that have been waiting we go...
I have a bit of news for you this week.  It appears our "Sam" has crashed and 'ALMOST BURNED', lol.  I won't allow her to fizzle out completely, just a wee bit hehe...She needs a bit of R&R and family time so she will be just doing cards weekly and "catching up" on the home front.  Don't fear, she won't be to far away and we hope she takes this time to think of even better challenges for you all with her witty ways...
you can leave all the worrying to me lmao
Now what you all been waiting for, the deets:
