Challenge 33 - Anything Goes and some news

Hello everyone!  It is with great sadness that we have to inform you that this is the last challenge at Waltzingmouse Fanatics.  Whilst we've loved setting the challenges each fortnight, we just don't seem to have been able to build the numbers of players up, so feel we can't continue with all that goes into running a challenge with the low number of players we get each time.    Just remember, it's only the challenge that's closing and not the store!!!  Whilst numbers have been low we have had some wonderful regular supporters and we would like to thank everyone for playing along with us.  We've decided that as it's the last challenge we'll go with a theme that everyone likes:

ANYTHING WALTZINGMOUSE GOES!!

For this last challenge, Claire Brennan, designer and owner of Waltzingmouse Stamps, is offering a £20 prize voucher for the winner of this challenge.  The voucher is valid to March 2015 and is for use at the Waltzingmouse Stamps online store.  In order to be considered for the winner or top three you must use at least ONE Waltzingmouse stamp, sentiment or digi on your project. 

Here's some inspiration from the team:

You can upload your submissions until Thursday 1st January and we will announce the prize winner and top 3 on Saturday 3rd January 2015.

We'd like to wish you all a very 
Merry Christmas
and a 
Happy New Year

Challenge 32 - Sketch

Hello everyone!  For the next couple of weeks we'd like to see your Waltzingmouse projects based on the following sketch:

WMSFC#32

You can rotate or flip the sketch, change up the shapes - but we must be able to see the basic sketch in your project.

Once again, I'd like to remind everyone that you MUST use at least one Waltzingmouse stamp, sentiment or digi on your project.  Sadly, we will remove any submission that does not meet the rules.  

Here's some inspiration from the team:

Challenge 31 - Flowers

Good morning!  Now that the evenings are getting darker and it's getting colder, we thought we shake things up a bit and for our theme this time we've gone with:

FLOWERS

There are spring flowers in the graphic, but you could go for Christmas flowers or even funky flowers, we just want to see your projects with flowers.

Sorry to keep on about this, I need to remind everyone that you MUST use at least one Waltzingmouse stamp, sentiment or digi on your project.  Sadly, we will remove any submission that does not meet the rules.  

Here's some inspiration from the team:

Challenge 30 - Colours

Hello and Good Morning!  
Looks like you didn't much like our Halloween theme challenge!!!  
Nevermind, it's time for our new challenge, and hopefully you'll like this one much more.  
For the next couple of weeks we've got some colours for you to play with.

The colours in the photo are teal, lilac, bright pink, lime green and purple.  
You must use at least THREE of the colours. 
You can use neutrals of white, black, grey, kraft and cream.  
I know the graphic is a Christmas bauble, but you don't have to make a Christmas card - in fact you can make any theme you like!  

Once again, I'd like to remind everyone that you MUST use at least one Waltzingmouse stamp, sentiment or digi on your project.  Sadly, we will remove any submission that does not meet the rules.
