Passion for Promarkers

Passion for ProMarkers

*** WARNING – LONG POST ***

Grab a cuppa and a biscuit (or two) and make yourself comfortable!

Good morning dear crafters, we hope you all had a fantastic week last week. The DT really enjoyed visiting your blogs and seeing you fabulous creations for last week’s “eat, drink & be merry” challenge.  Don't forget to check back later to find out who the lucky winner of the stamp set (must be in stock) courtesy of Clearly Besotted stamps will be and also to see who Lisa has chosen as her top 5 Passionista.

Before we announce the details of our biggest challenge of 2016 we would like to let you know who our new DT members will be and who will be joining Team 2 in January 2017.  Please welcome Jacky and Kitty.  Check out their blogs to see their amazing creations.  Thank you to everyone who entered our DT call.

This week we are launching our very special “Mega Christmas challenge” which runs for a whole month and ends on 3rd January 2017!  I’m sure you’ll agree that both design teams have worked extremely hard once again this year and they deserve a little break to catch up on their last minute gifts and cards.  However to make up for the lack of challenges we have some fantastic prizes up for grabs!

Our theme for the Mega Christmas challenge is “use your dies/punches”.  You are welcome to make Christmas cards but as the challenge will still be running after the ‘BIG’ day you can of course make any type of creation as long as you follow the theme.  As time is precious for our DT at this time of year we are limiting the number of entries you can make to just 3 for this month long challenge.  Please remember to be eligible for our prizes you must use your promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, metallic or aqua markers.  Please can you help us by stating which Letraset products you have used on your creation i.e. ‘coloured with promarkers’ etc.  Thanks x x

So now for the exciting bit – the prizes!

Winsor & Newton are offering one lucky winner a Student Designer pack of 24 promarkers
