Willow Sketchie Challenge - 28th June - 'Sparkle and Shine'

Hi Everyone,

How are you doing today???  The weather has been really nice (for a change!!!), I was saying to you last week that I had been taking part in a Stroke Trial, well today's the last day of being wired up and doing all the exercises, I now have started seeing tiny improvements, only little ones but it's a bonus.  Still have to go for my MRI scan on Friday, this is followed by 3 follow up appointments, but I think it has been successful.  I was also saying about my Mum, that last week we had to go to the Non-Hodgekins Lymphoma appointment, well I can reveal after months / a year of worrying she is now in Remission, you have no idea that the weight has been lifted.

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 crafter's 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 Pauline, and she has the most fantastic Sketch for you to follow, and here it is:

But, together with the Sketch her Theme is:

'Make it Sparkle and Shine' 

All you have to do the Challenge, is the Card / Project needs you need to make it 'Sparkle and Shine'.

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!!!
