Challenge # 24 Sport

We in the UK are experiencing a wonderful spell of warm sunny weather, which we are of course greatly enjoying. Going for walks, visiting the coastline, pottering around in the garden, catching up on those long needed outdoor jobs. Maybe this is why we had only a few entrants for our Anniversary theme last week, or maybe you ddin't have an anniversary to make a project for. We are most grateful and thankful to the few who did take part and for this Jan, is awarding each of you with a Top 3 Badge, please take one from the Winner's tab.

Guest Designer 
This is the last week to apply for the Guest Designer spot
for the month of July. Simply add GDT after your name. The winner drawn will be contacted, and 
hopefully will be able to take part starting next week.

Okay, business over, now what has Julie asked of us this week, a theme which is so 
very appropriate, the World Cup in progress, ( I won't mention England's failure), 
Wimbledon, Cricket and even the horse racing  at Ascot .

Any project which depicts anything related to sport , must be for a male person.

Diane, we are missing you- has computer issues.

Will hopefully be joining us soon.

and from the same CD, me again - Caz

Thank you to the Design Team for again providing such wonderful inspiration.

Father's Day Card Challenge # 21

Many thanks to those who took part in our Recipe 1,2, and 3 challenge, it seems you really liked this theme. Thanks to Kim who has chosen the Top 3, not an easy task, but then, is it ever, there are so many talented crafters in blogland.  Congratulaions to our Top 3 Winners, please take our badge from the Winner's tab, well done, we would so much like to see you visit us again.

# 2 Rocky
...love the depth to this

# 6 Jan R
..I love how the 1,2, and 3 are included in such a CAS card

#5 Katie Tate
...love all of the elements to this and the colouring is beautiful

Sadly, one of our Design Team, Shani has decided the time has come for her to move on . We all send her our very best wishes for a continued  success in all she does and say a big thank you for sharing her wonderful, creative talent with us over the past few months. 

Guest Designers
We are almost six months old, it is time for us to spread our wings a  little, going slow but sure being our aim from the beginning.  We would like to start featuring you, our participants as guest designers.  We would like to feature you, for you to tell us a little about you in the crafting world. For you to provide four inspirtational cards during your four weeks assignment. All you have to do is add GD after your name on your entry.
Every entry, over the four weeks from 3rd June - 24th June inclusive with GD will be put into a draw, each month a winner  GD post will be drawn. Being a Guest Designer may suit you more than being a full active member of a DT, also it will give you a taste of being a member of a Design Team. 

Now let's get on with it, this week is my (Caz) choice for the theme, what else could it be? 
We being a male orientated challenge blog June 15th is in both the US and UK 
We give an alternative, you may enter either.

I would like to thank the amazing creative Design Team,  for their wonderful inspiration.


Thanks once again to the wonderful Design Team, we do hope their cards will inspire you to make either your needed Father's Day card/project or for the Man In Your Life. 
Please check our rules - there are so few. 
You are invited to visit the DT simply by clicking on their names to go to their personal blogs for more details, we are so thrilled when you take the time to visit and to leave a comment.

If your interested in being a Guest Designer add GD after your name, thanks and good luck.
