September Challenge Winners

I hope you all enjoyed playing with our sketch challenge this month - the entries seemed to suggest you did as we had some fabulously creative ones!

Our winner this month is Ruth from Crafting Whilst The Baby Naps who shows that its worth getting an entry in even close to the deadline!   We loved Ruth's idea of combining a slider for the sentiment with shaker elements behind the circles which looked like portholes on a ship so tied her nautical theme together well.

Our runners up this month were, in no particular order:

Katherine - we loved her fun take on the challenge where the circles became plates 
for the BBQ goodies!

We loved how this card from Chez Moi interpreted the sketch and used the elements to create a story - really fun and interesting take on the challenge.

Finally we loved Gemma's take on the challenge with the mushrooms and acorns adding the additional elements around her framed hedgehogs.  Another great way to show how to interpret a sketch.

Here's your winners badge for your blogs.

If you didn't win then worry not - we'll be back with October's challenge on SUNDAY 2nd October.  We're starting a day later than normal as tomorrow is WORLD CARDMAKING DAY so we're running a "share your makes" competition through our social media platforms so if you're planning on a day full of crafting - and let's face it, a day just for us is the PERFECT excuse - then come and join in the fun on Facebook or Instagram.
