Challenge 81 and Winners of Challenge 80

Hello everybody and welcome to our latest challenge!

Before I give you details of this challenge, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who entered our last challenge, all the entries were fab, we loved looking at them all :)

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

The theme of this fortnights challenge is
(please let us know what your favourite colour is)

Here are details of this challenge's wonderful sponsor... 

Beccy’s Place Digital Designs by Beccy Muir...
My paper obsession began with scrapbooking in the late 1990s and has since evolved into card-making and digital drawing.  There were a few years of decorative painting, teddy bear making and silk ribbon embroidery mixed in there too.  I still dabble in each of those crafts (and many others) from time to time but I generally gravitate toward paper, which I find versatile and forgiving.
I started “doodling” little designs for cards back in 2009, which is when I started my blog and began sharing my images with other Cardies.  From there I progressed to my very own online store selling digital drawings for cards and other paper craft projects.  Some of my images have now been made into rubber stamps by the wonderful team over at Sparkle N Sprinkle.  These days you can usually find me “hanging out” over on my blog,

If you are our lucky winner of this challenge, you will receive one set of digital stamps of your choice from their Store.  Click HERE to be taken to their web-store and for more inspiration take a look at their Blog and Facebook page.
