Good morning dear crafters, I hope you all had a brilliant week last week.  Thank you all so much for your fantastic entries for last week’s ‘Christmas in July’ challenge.  There were lots of gorgeous entries and the DT had a fantastic time visiting your blogs and enjoyed seeing your wonderful creations.  You are all obviously very organised and getting your Christmas cards done early!  Don’t forget to come back later to find out who Lorraine has chosen as her top 5 passionista and to find out who the lucky winner of the £10.00 voucher courtesy of DigiStamp Boutique will be! 

Onto this week’s challenge which has been set by Julie from Team 1 and she has given us the theme of “summer lovin’”.  Julie would like you to use your images that show something that you would do in the summer i.e. sit on the beach, eat an ice cream, play in a paddling pool, the options are endless.  Whatever you use please remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card.  Don’t forget, as always, to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Letraset products (i.e. promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers, tria markers, metallic markers or neon markers).

Our generous sponsor this week is Whiff of Joy stamps and Katharina is offering 1 stamp of the winner’s choice (but it must be in stock).
