Fabric Challenge Winners

Sorry for the late night post but I've been having real problems with blogger tonight but it finally seems to have allowed me in.

It seems like you all liked our fabric challenge - we had lots of creative ideas but one card really stood out to this week so our No1 Fan is Sarah with this stunning butterfly card.  We loved that the stitched butterfly stamp also tied into the theme and the colours and fabric pattern are fabulous.  Do take your winners badge for your blog Sarah.

Our runners up, in order of entry were:

Shirley - fabulous vibrant stamping on a canvas panel

Classic elegance from Elisabeta - the ribbon mixture adds richness and texture

Carola's die cut use of leftover fabric from making a bag is a very clever way to use up your scraps and it made such a pretty feminine card.

Again, please take your badge from our winners page (see tabs at the top) and don't forget to come back tomorrow for our new challenge - we're getting sketchy again.....

Challenge 9 - Fabric

Good Morning Fanatics - are you ready for a new challenge?  We have a theme for your this time around and the challenge is to use fabric somewhere on your project - this could be in the form of ribbon, felt or fabric scraps on a card, or you could even try your hand and stamping onto some fabric - anything goes!  We're quite excited by the possibilities of this one!   (You don't have to sew the fabric btw - glue is fine!)

Whatever route you take - please remember you MUST include WALTZINGMOUSE PRODUCTS on your project somewhere to be eligible for this challenge.

Here's what we did with it - as always you can click the links to our personal blogs for details and to say hello ;-)

Challenge 8 Winners!

Well hello folks and Happy New Year - hope 2014 is treating you well thus far.

We're here ahead of tomorrow's new challenge to announce the winners from our flamingo based colour challenge - it seems you all liked the hues we chose as this challenge saw our highest number of entrants since our first challenge!   It was very difficult to choose our winners - you all make such fabulous cards :-D

Our No 1 Fan for this challenge was Lori - we adored the soft romantic feel she achieved using the softer hues in the theme colours.   Lori - as this challenge was a prize challenge, please email Deborah with your postal address so she can send you the set of stamps you've won :-)

Our runners up this time around are as follows, as always - in order of entry:

 GrĂ¡ - fabulous use of the stronger colours on the background - the colours really pop and make a great place to highlight the super cute rocket :-)

Shirley - we loved the monochrome leaves with strong pops of colour from the flowers - lovely CAS design

Kathy - the fabulous plaid background caught both our eyes and was the perfect background to show off the lantern

Don't forget to take your winners badges from our "winners" page (see top of the blog) and we hope you'll be back again in the morning for our brand new themed based challenge - we think it's quite a fun one that will see all you crafty wombles digging in your 'bits n bobs' drawers ;-)
