Challenge 165 - Buttons & Bows & GDT for February

Good morning everyone and it's Kim here with a warm welcome to a new challenge here at CraftyCatz!  Wow! There were a lot of entries for last week's 'Anything Goes' challenge - nearly 270! And they were all fabulous!  I'm so glad that Mr Random picks the winners for us!
And as there were two prizes on offer for our first challenge of 2013 there are two winners -
The winner of our 
No. 81 - Ajascha - with this gorgeous creation!

And the winner of the fantastic crafting goody bag provided by our lovely Carol is
No. 206 - Nessy - with this gorgeous little cowboy!

So please can both of our prize winners email Carol

So, onto this week's challenge - and another nice and easy one for you - Buttons & Bows! We just need to see at least one bow and at least one button somewhere on your creation! Easy Peasy! The prize this week is a gorgeous goody bag of crafting treasures from Mulberry Crafts

We're also looking for a Guest DT member to join us for February! So if you are interested in joining our happy, friendly team just add 'GDT' after your name on your Linky entry.
Our fantastic DT have provided some great 'Buttons & Bows' inspiration for you

Aren't they great?
So get busy with the buttons & bows and join us this week.  Please remember that it is ONE entry per person 
to make it fair for everyone.  There were quite a few multiple entries last week and we're sorry but they are then deleted before we make the random winners draw! 
And don't forget to add 'GDT' if you'd like to join us as a Guest Design Team member for February!
