Challenge 72 and Winners of Challenge 71


Good morning and welcome, 

I hope you all had a fantastic crafty fortnight. 
Thank you so much for your gorgeous entries for last times challenge.  

Please scroll further down this post 
for the winners of last times challenge.


Now onto our new challenge for this fortnight at Crafty Friends...
The theme of this challenge is

BABIES / CHILDREN


You can make anything you like, maybe a card, a scrapbook layout of even home decorYou can use any products you like to enter as long as it follows the theme for this fortnight. 

Our wonderful sponsor for today's challenge is 
Di's Digi Stamps


 I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people.  I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.  This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue.

If you are our lucky winner of this challenge, you will receive the following fabulous prize... a $12 voucher to spend at Di's Digi Stamp store.

Here is the link to Di's Digi Stamp store - it is really worth a visit.  They sell a large selection of gorgeous digital stamps and clear stamps.  For more inspiration take a look at their Blog, Challenge Blog and Facebook page.
