Something Old , Something New

Hi Everyone, its Annie here with this fortnight's challenge, which is 'Something Old, Something New'. But before I explain the challenge, we, the DT, would like to thank you for the wonderful entries to Christi's Cats theme challenge......... we certainly have a difficult task in choosing a
 winner :-)

Now about this fortnights challenge........we all have some old craft items in our stash and of course we have some new ones too............ so I would like you to make something which incorporates them both............not too hard............but you are required to list what you have used within your blog post, not just the link to our challenge to be in with a chance to win a prize. ( Please check out the New Pesky Rules to ensure that your entry/post qualifies to be in with a chance of winning)

Our sponsor this fortnight is Crafty Individuals

I have used an 'Old' embossing folder and a 'New'  Ivy die on my project 

On Vacation!

new stamp, old ribbon


Old Dresden Frame and a "new" DCWV Paper Stack

I used a new background stamp and an old Dreamweaver Stemcil.


New Stamps, Old stamps, old book and my old stand by... Doodling ;-)


I hope you are inspired by the fabulous makes of my amazing DT sisters and we look forward to viewing your entries

Crafty Hugs and remember those Pesky rules/challenge details when linking your entries.
Most of all..........Have Fun !!!

Summer Garden Challenge Winners

Hi, Hazel here with the winner and top three for my Summer Garden Challenge. We had some wonderful entries, a big thank you to all that entered. We have some new rules and one of them is that the DT team choose the winner instead of a random draw.
Our first winner under the new rule is

Congratulations Pamellia, please email Zoe to get your prize, and please take your winners badge from the sidebar.

The top three have also been chosen by the DT, here they are in no particular order.




Congratulations ladies, please take your top three badge from the side bar.

As I said at the start of this post we had some wonderful entries, unfortunately we had a lot of entries that had to be disqualified. Please read the rules before you enter our challenge
Our rules are shown in the page Pesky Rules above but to give you a quick run down they are:
Must be new (no back links) 
Fit our theme (no token gestures)
Maximum of 3 entries to our challenge (limit of 5 other challenges entered)
On your blog post add our challenge and a link back to this site.

Our Rules

We are refreshing things just a little and have some updates/revisions to the rules. Please read these and be sure your entry qualifies.

1 You must check the challenge details and comply with all the specifications. i.e. Tell us what about xxxx inspired you means we expect to see some information relating your project to our challenge on your post.

2 Token elements are insufficient if our challenge is for example "Wings" that tiny little flying thing in the bottom left background is not qualifying element.

3 Entries that are really promoting products and or other challenges are no longer allowed.

With these 3 rules we are looking to see that your entry is really a response to the challenge. We work hard on our team inspiration pieces, we have a system in place to make sure we will comment on all the entries we can and this team often comment on more than the those required by our system. All we ask is that you join in with the spirit of our challenge. Inherent is this is the requirement that your project be new and not a back line to an older project.

We are not going to spend a lot of time policing this, entries that do not qualify will simply be ignored by the team.

4 You may not enter more than 5 other challenges besides ours that is a total of 6 challenges entered.

5 You may not enter this challenge more than 3 times per theme.

6 Winner and Top 3 will be selected by team vote

7 While we try to comment on all entries some of us have a problem with WordPress and have found that we cannot always successfully comment on these.

7a We are also cautious about having to fill in a questionnaire before we can comment. We might not take the time if we have a lot to get through.

7b please turn off word verification

8 Our decision is final in all considerations of compliance with these rules.

9 Prizes are offer depending on availability, we are dependant on our very generous sponsors and from time to time we will provided the prize ourselves.

10 Please remember to add a link from your post to our challenge site here.

The purpose of this update is to encourage our followers who regularly join in with some fabulous work that is inspired by the challenge and who take the time to share it. We do not care what your style/standard is we just want to see you grow as artists and perhaps play a part in your journey.
