Willow Sketchie Challenge - 21st June - 'Bright and Bold' + DT Call

Hi Everyone,

This morning I have gone to the Stroke Trial at my local hospital, it is where they wire up my brain and then I have to do some hand and arm exercises (my bad arm), I have to do this for 2 weeks, every single day.  I'm not feeling tired or anything yet, and I have seen some improvement, and it's only day 4.  After that we are going to another hospital, for my Mum's hospital appointment, my Mum has Non-Hodgekins Lymphoma, cancer hits everyone we love, lets hope there's no change.

Now, we are looking for a selection of additional DT members to join our expanding challenge blog.
What do we ask of our DT members?
You will need to produce 1 card per week, you will need to have an updated blog and above all love what we do at Willow Designs.
In particular, we are looking for those crafters who love to colour!

Willow Designs has been steadily expanding over the last few years and are excited to be exhibiting at our very first Hobbycrafts at Birmingham NEC this November. If you would like to be part of our team please email sales@willowdesignstamps.com giving a brief bio and a link to your blog as well as a list of all current design teams you participate in (if any).

Once your submission has been received you will receive an automated response.
Deadline for all submissions is Monday 2nd July 2012 

Well, it's Thursday and that means it's time for another Willow Sketchie Challenge.  However, there is a new format that we are now following.  There is a Sketch, however there is also a Theme, now it's your choice as to what one or both you decide to follow. 

But firstly, I must congratulate the Winner of last weeks Challenge, and of course the Top Three, we had loads of really good entries and I really like looking at each of them, so thank you all for following my sketch or following my Theme or both. I really enjoyed your card / project.  I hope you enjoy you Voucher to spend at Willow Designs.  Congratulations.

This week our hostess is the most wonderful Kelly, and she has the most fantastic Sketch for you to follow, and here it is:

But, together with the Sketch her Theme is:

'Bright and Bold' 

All you have to do the Challenge, is the Card / Project needs to be bright and bold.

Now I here you calling 'What will I win???'.  I heard you, the Winner of this weeks Challenge (picked at random) will receive a Voucher to spend at Willow Designs, how cool is that!!!
