To be eligible for the Random draw and a chance to win £10 to spend at Craft-Room we look for the shop logo and a link to the shop in your side bar.

For the full rules please check the Pesky Rules page.




This week it is the turn of Mervi to give you the details of this fortnight's challenge.


Hello all, it's time to remember those men in our lives - so the challenge is for fathers or for a man. Let's see some masculine projects, cards, gifts... welcome!






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.
