Challenge 16 "LOVE"

Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge, Before i let you know more about this weeks challenge i just want to say THANKYOU to everyone taking part in our challenges from week to week and to the lots of new comers to our blog.

It's great looking at all theses fantastic cards full of inspiration.

This weeks challenge is all about "LOVE".It can be an anniversary, wedding or engagement card,or just a card to say i love you, but you must have a heart or hearts somewhere on your card. Below are some fantastic inspiration from the DT peeps,Unfortunately no card from Kirsty this week as work has become very demanding..poor kirsty, but hopefully she will find some extra time to play with us again real soon.

Please add your name to Mr Linky if it is there,(i am hoping someone will add it for me) if not a link will do to your post so we can pop by and look at your creation.

I have decided to offer a prize myself this week for the winner and it will be a Popcorn bear stamp, they are so cute!

Challenge # 15 - A Birthday Card

WINNER Challenge #14

Congratulations to this week's winner .....


Well done huni, please e-mail me at


Hello and welcome to another challenge at Crafty Catz. Thank you so much for all your entries last week, it is so nice that so many of you could join us and we loved looking at every single one of your entries. Kirsty will be back later with the winner of the prize.

This weeks challenge has been set by myself, Suzie and I would like you to make a birthday card - it can be for a male or female, young or old so just let your imaginations run wild and we look forward to visiting you all this week.

We are being sponsored by The Cutting Cafe this week.

A little bit about the Cutting Cafe'

Hello my name is Regina Easter. I have 4 wonderful children and an awesome supportive husband. I have for as long as I can remember loved all the aspects of creating things with paper and drawing. So it was only fitting that I decided to open up The Cutting Cafe' and I am loving every bit of this new venture. The Cutting Cafe' offers affordable Printable Stamps and Cutting Files. The Cutting Files which are basically just like templates are files that you Print out using your home printer, Cut, Assemble and then Embellish.....Very Easy.....The Cutting Files also come in the format where you can cut out the files using some of the latest Machine Cutters like the Pazzles Inspiration, Bosskut Gazelle and Cricut (with Scal software). The Printable Stamps are just that, images that are sent to you through email that you print out using your home printer. After the images are printed out, you can just color them in like you would any other stamped imaged...One great thing about the Printable Stamps and Cutting Files is that you no longer have to worry about finding space to store all of your stamps....You can keep them all in a folder in your computer and use over and over again.
Regina is offering any 3 sets of printable stamps the winner wants! FAB!!

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!
