Loads of announcements plus Artbuzz Fur baby challenge

Wow Well I have three great announcements today Ist am announcing the 2 winners of the two great Dovecraft prizes today. Plus another really exciting announcement

382 tickets in total for the comment and challenge prize draw . It took me ages to write them all out. The name pulled from the is Joanne who has a blog http://mypaperprojects.blogspot.com/

Winner of the Dovecraft crafting competiton ,it was a really difficult choice for the judge because all the entries were so good but the final choice ended up between 2 people, both of whom, had two wonderful entries, the final decision went with Debbie http://bubble-deb.blogspot.com Her cosmetic holder was brilliant and her card on the same post was beautiful as you can see.

So please ladies e mail me your addresses to rattytatty@fsmail.net Thanks and well done.






I would like to take this opportunity to thank both our sponsors for their wonderful prize selections


Comment prize sponsored by Trimcraft (if you haven't joined their forum yet, you don't know what your missing. Loads of pages of free projects with instructions, and a great social network for crafters.)

A new challenge blog

Being the sort of person I am , I am always looking at different things for inspiration and am always trying out new techniques and crafts. So I thought that a challenge that was open to any form of art or craft entry would be a brilliant way to inspire you to create , Not just because of the challenge, but because of the many varied entries that will be on show.

So last week I started looking for a team, and asked Rosie http://alteredartandstuff.wordpress.com/ not realsing all the commitments she has and what a hectic life she leads. Rosie was very excited about the idea but after a night thought realised that there was just no way she could offer that sort of commitment, but she has kindly agreed to be our 1st guest designer. I then asked Fiona http://magickdiva.blogspot.com/ and Susie www.whiteribboncards.blogspot.com/ and am really pleased to say that they loved the idea and are now along with myself the This Thursdays design team.

I have been very pleasantly surprised surprised just how excited everyone is about the CHALLENGE , so much so we already have sponsors for the 1st 5 challenges and we can't wait for the challenges to begin.

The challenge blog is open now whilst in development and there is a chatroom. if you want to go in the chatroom to suggest things that you would love to see, or just to chat with others. Great. We will be announcing on our blogs a pre launch chat in the chatroom with the design team in the near future.

We are also looking for Guest designers with different crafting or art skills as well as papercrafters to take part to take part. If you think that you have what we are looking for please e mail the team on thisthursday@artlover.com with craft areas you are experienced in and a link to your blog.

Anyway thats my news for now

Congratulations Debbee,

I didn't manage it, I think due to my PC confusing me by setting the date to 21st May last Sunday which was a Wenesday I think, I reset it to the 18th and started panicking as I hadn't got my Mum a birthday pressie, then got to work Monday and realised it was only the 12th!
Then I was too busy/tired to do anything!

Lot of excuses or what!
