Time for our Challenge reveal :)  For this one we want to see texture on your projects, fabrics, ribbons, texture paste, embosing.... the options are limitless.
We also have a few of the new team Lou lovelies joining us this challenge and while we are really excited to welcome them, it of course means we have to say goodbye too :(  So I would like to take this opportunity to say farewell and thank you to Tammi, Leah, Sandra, Brenda, Tanya and Linda.  Thanks for all your hard work ladies and also your friendship, we hope you will not disappear off into the sunset, but hope that instead you will stick around and join in on the odd challenge and stop by and say hi.  Thanks again darlings and all the best xx

Do You Love........

Awesome Sponsors????? Well do you? ;)
If the answer is yes and you love our blog and enjoy playing along with our challenges then we would love you to officially show your support by "following" us on our sidebar and also on our FACEBOOK page.
Because, did you know, that ALOT of sponsors will only sponsor blogs with a HUGEMOUNGOUS following.  And apparently the 804 lovely official followers we have is not enough :(  Although we of course love you all :)
So if you want more new and awesome sponsors for next year please click that follow button, share us on facebook or your blogs and LIKE us on facebook and we will do our best to bring you loads of lovely sponsors for next year, thanks to you all xx
