Sketch #61 - 25th July - sponsored by The Craft Barn

Happy Saturday everyone!
This weeks challenge is sponsored by one of our lovely regular sponsors, The Craft Barn.

News from The Craft Barn this month...


"This is our second major free event of the year on 12th and 13th September. We are still finalising our list but we will have at least 17 demonstrators demoing products and techniques and hosting workshops continuously for the weekend.

Because June was so busy, we have added an extra venue in the village for the demonstrations to create more space and to allow people to get closer to the demonstrations. The list of demonstrators is now published and one thing we can promise, if you love crafting you will not want to miss them!

We will once again host a series of 1 hour workshops in the dedicated studio at the Craft Barn, these are all different, limited to 12 people and priced at £3.50. These do sell out fast so don't delay book as early as possible."

and Sandy has recently taken stock of lots of new cuttlebug folders for you all to feast your eyes on!
and this week Sandy is offering this fabulous prize worth £12.99 to our winner...

Cuttlebug punch & emboss folder : damask frames

So here is this weeks sketch for you to use to enter our challenge...

And here are the cards by the super talented design team, and remember to go visit their blogs to see how they made their wonderful creations...
