May Challenge

Good Morning to you all, I hope you are all ready for our new challenge and of course a fabulous new sponsor..........Tonic Studios who are offering a fabulous prize of the Peruvian Lily Pick of the Bunch punch and stamp sets and a gorgeous lattice window die also from the same range all designed by our very own mega talented Ruth. 

Out theme this month as chosen by our teamie Francesca is......................

********Embossing and Texture********

Any sort of embossing goes be it dry or heat embossing and with so many fabulous dies and embossing folders available the sky is the limit and I am sure you are going to come up with some awesome entries, as you always do of course.

Tonic Studios who are this months sponsor are synonymous with quality and precision cutting products from scissors to punches, guillotines to dies. During the last year they have extended their range of products to high quality clear stamps  and very recently released their own design papers. Their products are available from many High Street craft stores and frequently feature on Create and Craft TV.

The March winner of your challenge was Fliss and this month we are really pleased to welcome her as our Guest designer, here's the fabby piece of artwork she has created for this months challenge...........

And a little more inspiration for the Design Team and several of them have used Tonic products and shown how versatile they are and can be used in so many different ways.....................
