D for Distress it!


Hi Everyone, It's me Samantha,
Firstly I have some housekeeping that WE really need your HELP!
Please Check your blogs for Word Verification!
Please can you turn it off! Blogger has changed to this new one above and its terrible you can hardly read the words and for me being Dyslexic its a nightmare! Its a real pain to try and figure the letters and so time consuming for the whole of our Design Team, Please help us beat the Word Verification headache by switching it off! if you don’t know how to check or how to turn it off
I hope you had fun with our last Challenge C for Charming and you know what We LOVED your creations…. remember to check the sidebar to see if you are one of the lucky winners and there are 3 winners of all the wonderful sponsors' prizes... Also see who Miria chose for her Top 3 picks.
Well did you think that the last Challenge was easy?
Yes?
Well guess what.... So is this challenge for the next fortnight!
I am the Host and I choose......

D for Distress it!
as our Theme.

We have 2 Fabulous Sponsors this time:

Prize of a $10.00 Gift Certificate to spend in the Sweet Stamp Store
Sweet Stamps manufactures artistic rubber stamps on cling cushion for use with acrylic blocks. We carry a variety of stamping and paper crafting goodies like our own Shades dye inks, metal embossing plates, embossing folders, cutting & embossing dies (Cheery Lynn, Marianne, Joy! and Nellie's), fine detail embossing powders, specialty cardstock and vellum along with supplies for parchment crafting.

And we have the awesome Karen's doodles
There is a fantastic selection of designs, Digital and Rubber stamps,
and our winner will receive 3 digis from Karen's doodles of their choice.



We have a Very special Guest Designer
Hazel she was our winner a few months ago and the sponsor did not get back to her with her prize :0( Hazel told us not to worry about it and it did not matter!
well we were very sad as the Sponsor let not just us down but her also.
needless to say we wont be asking this sponsor to sponsor again :(
ANYWAY!!!
We have invited her to be our Special Guest this time and I have to say she is a LOVELY lady and your in for a treat! her card and blog is fabulous so stop by her blog make sure you stop by her blog too and check our her inspirational creations.

  6. For those who may be using the new blogger interface, the option to turn off word verification is not there. You have to click on the setting symbol and change back to the old interface and then follow your instructions to turn it off, save and then switch back to the new interface.
