Winners Post for Something Old, Something New

Hi everyone,  Annie her with the names of the challenge winners for our Something Old, Something new theme. It's clear to see by the number of  fabulous entrants that this theme was enjoyed by many of you and we certainly had a very hard task in choosing our Winner and Top 3. 

Before I make the winer and Top 3 announcement we, the Design Team,  would just like to remind everyone who enters our challenges that we have made some changes to our challenge rules,  in particular the number of challenge entries that can be made. 
Unfortunately,  there have been many entrants who did not qualify for our prize over the last few weeks, due to the number of challenges they had entered. 
It's also important that you read the description of the challenge as it may be a requirement to mention something in your post, not just your link to our challenge i.e some entries did not mention the old and new item within their post and finally, please remember to provide a link to the challenge. 
We may sound pedantic, but it is  very frustrating for the DT to see some amazing entries who are excluded from the prize simply because they have not read the challenge rules. So please, please, read our challenge rules and descriptions, making it fair for everyone, including the DT.

Now let's get on with the name of our challenge winner........................and our huge congratulations goes to .....................Pamellia, entry number 25 :-)

 This is a stunning card Pamellia, with gorgeous soft colours and a beautiful design. Your attention to detail is perfect and we loved those amazing florals.

To claim your prize please contact Zoe on zoechaos@icloud.com
There is also a  CRC blog badge on our sidebar x

Now for the Top 3, who also receive a CRC blog badge ...................in no particular order

Number 44.............Emma................ for her beautiful configurations box. So many fabulous details

Number 51........Kerstin......... for her wonderfully colourful and stunning Inchie project

Number 75..........Hussena    .........for these absolutely gorgeous mini magazine  holders and folders
Thank You so much Ladies and please remember to take your Top 3 badge from our sidebar. 

There's still time to play in our current  'Forest Friends' challenge, hosted by Amber, who would love to see your creations in her chosen theme.......and as always there is a prize for the winner as well as the thrill of being chosen as one of our Top 3. 

Best Wishes and crafty hugs

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.

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.
