woo hoo!

Well, hellerrrrrrr you loverlie lot!

We don't have any winners to announce today due to the new rule changes so tune in next week for the winning entries of last week's challenge and if you havent entered yet you still have till Sunday, yippee!
Well, I am in a really good mood this week as it's our 2 month birthday, happy birthday to us, happy birthday to us...even more reason for you to enter the challenge this week, specially if you are a newbie, just see what you can win etc on last week's challenge post, lots of candy available!

Anyway enough of the drivelling, hope you got to see the show on Create and Craft on Tuesday and if not we are being repeated over this coming weekend for the big craft spectacular (sorry don't know times etc). We are totally overwhelmed at how popular the launch of Candy Doodles is, we can't keep up with the orders and have a mountain of orders to despatch, so if you have pre-ordered it I know you've been waiting already but please please bear with us, we are trying our hardest to work through them! Kris even threatened to stay up all night but he can't possibly do that he gets tired enough bless him. Right on with the kewl stuff...

This week's challenge is to use the following can do what you want and use what you want, deadline for entries is Sunday 2nd August at noon, so don't be late!

This week the team had to follow the same sketchie and use the Candy Doodles CD. Now, when I gave them the images for CD they only got half of them so they have tended to use similar ones this week, but it just goes to show how versatile they actually are. And what
mega designers are on the team.

Created by Saskia...(oops, had a few problems with the images here, sorry Saskia hun!)...anyway, I love this card by Saskia, she's chosen Jack, Polly's new beau and a handsome chap he is too. I just love love love that backing paper, it works with everything!...lush card.

Created by Sue...Wow! Sue has used these lush butterflies which were a last minute inspiration for the CD and I'm soooo glad I included them as I love 'em! Awesome job she's done here, pink and black are soo lush together...

created by Krista...Krista has used the gorgeous Tweets collection here, lots of scrummy pastels and lovely birds to create a stunning bright and cheerful card...(the bird was named Colin live on air on Tuesday :? )...
created by Kath....this woman is sooo creative, it seems whatever she touches turns to crafty gold, what a gorgeous card this is. The daisies are a complete backing paper but she's cut them away and layered them up for this faberoo beauty - love love love the 3 kisses in the middle...created by Enfys...En opted for this lovely Garden collection from the CD and I love what she's done here with the aperture, quite simple but a fantastic card and I think you could send this to a guy maybe too? Wish I could be naffed to get my sewing machine out too, must create a space so it's just there I think. I love the 3 little mats at the bottom...

... and this is the first time (I'm sure not the last!) that you've seen "Fudge" - Polly's dog...

created by Ruth....I love Ruth's style and I think this li'l creation is soooo lovely, colours are great on this, all nicely washed out and green is my fave at the mo I think....

created by Lou...this is actually Lou's 2nd card and here she's picked a daisy bakcing paper with the scrummy Dolly Mix papers to make a fab baby card. At least I think it is, not sure with the pram ;D...

designed by Polly and her new bloke, Jack! Caught you both! No canoodling behind that giant daisy please!!! Love this card, it's so great for any occasion. I want to go and sit in a field of giant daisies too :)

created by Lou (deja vu)...this Garden Collection has been mega popular with the Teamies and I must admit I love it myself too, sooo versatile you can do a squillion things with this range...
just love scallop shaped cards...
Right then, get cracking, what you waiting for, you have a deadline to meet!! lol! xx
