Challenge # 10 - Angels & Fairies & Week 2 of DT Call

Winner of Challenge # 9

Good morning and first of all I would like to announce the winner of last weeks prize drawn by Random.Org

No. 15

Cheryl at Ch3rrie's Creations

Congratulations Cheryl if you can contact Kirsty at she will organise your prize.


Hello and welcome to another challenge at Crafty Catz, thank you to everyone who entered last week and if you still want to be considered for our DT please enter again this week, you have until 2nd December to get your entry on Mr Linky. Kirsty will be back later with our Top 5 !

I am Suzie and it is my turn to host the challenge this week and I would like you to use either an angel or a fairy on your creations this week, it can be a card for any occasion so just let your imaginations run wild.

Our sponsor this week is the lovely Kerry at The Craft Garden and she has kindly given us some gorgeous flowers and gems as the prize.

Here is a little bit about The Craft Garden:-

The business started out when I bought a jar of craft flowers a few years ago and only used a small number. I tried a small experiment on Ebay to see if people wanted to buy them in small amounts. They sold out in a very short space of time and I had lots of requests from customers asking for a more varied assortment. It kind of grew from there.

The DT have done some lovely work as always and I am sure you will agree. If you have a moment please pop over to the DT's individual blogs and see what they have been up to this week. To join in please add your link to Mr Linky below, please make sure it’s the link to your card and not just your blog, this will help us find it quicker!

Remember to pop back next Friday when we will announce the winner of the prize and our top 5 !
