Forest Friends

Hi there crafty peeps!  I want to thank all of you for participating in Annie's challenge this past fortnight.  It is going to be so hard for us to choose a winner and top 3.  It is my turn to host the challenge for this fortnight, and I have picked the theme of "Forest Friends".  I love forest creatures!  You can include any of them in your project, but I ask that they be one of the focal points and not just a "token gesture".  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 time around is Tando Creative.  


Link your project up at the end of the post to qualify for a fabulous prize from this great company.  Now scroll through to view some fabulous inspiration from the Design Team. 





Thanks so much for joining us today.  I can't wait to see what fabulous creations you make with some adorable woodland creatures! 
Remember: no more than 5 other challenges with ours.

Winners of Challenge #38 - CATS

Hi everyone, it's Christi and I am thrilled to announce  the Winner and the Top 3 for challenge #38, CATS. Since we have changed the rules a bit here at Craft Room Challenge we now vote on the winners instead of using random draw (we have changed some other rules as well, PLEASE read the rules before entering! Unfortunately, if the rules aren't followed we must disqualify you).  There were some absolutely amazing entries and we had quite a few ties.  But after all the bribes were handled, we agreed that the winner and the top 3 are as follows:

The Winner

Congratulations Lula! Please contact Zoe (Zoechaos@icloud.com) for the specifics on how to get your prize and take the winners badge from the sidebar!

 The Top 3, in no specific order (don't forget to take your Top 3 Winner badge from the sidebar!):


We had some amazing entries and I want to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to create and enter our challenge. It's nice to see I'm not the only cat crazy crafter :) Since we have updated our rules we have had to disqualify many entries to our challenges.  The biggest issue is the number of entries; you can enter Craft Room Challenge 3 times, and/or combine with other entries for a total of 5.  Please read the  pesky new rules and don't let your hard work go to waste! Thank you ~ Christi

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.
