July challenge

Hi everyone :)
Well July has arrived - I was hoping it wouldn't come around so quickly as I now have to say
I'm 40 this month!!
Good grief, where has the time gone LOL.
Summer has really arrived too and it is very warm and sticky here and my poor dogs really don't like the heat, so I spend most of the time checking on them to make sure they're not over heating. I'm a worrier at the best of times so this has me in a real tiz.  This is why I'm late today, but at the moment they are lying quietly so they are keeping cool :)
So onto the winner for June - thank you so much all who entered, 155 entries which is great, I so love looking at all the crafty projects, they are all fabulous.
But there is only one winner and this month it is;
I have picked 3 for the top 3 but I am definitely going to make time to change the blog badges to say top 5.  I could have chosen everyone as they were all so great. However, I have managed to whittle it down to 3 who are;
111 - Sue Kment
If you would all like to email me HERE with blog winner in the subject line I'll pop your blog badges over to you if you would like one.  If InvisiblePinkCards includes an address I'll send you a little something for winning. 
Now though we're onto the July challenge which this month is:
Special Birthdays
All birthdays are special really aren't they so this leaves you wide open to do what you like.  Remember, it doesn't have to be a card, it can be anything as long as it has been hand crafted by you.
Here are a couple of cards to inspire you

I hope you will join in this month with our challenge - although, try not to make it as hard for me to pick a top 3 LOL.  We love looking at all your amazing makes.
Stay cool wherever you are and keep crafting :)

June challenge

Hi everyone :)
Well we are in June so more or less halfway through the year!!  Well at least Summer should well and truly be on its way (at least here in the Northern hemisphere) so we should get some nice weather, but here in the UK you can never be too sure LOL :)
Anyway, we had a bit of a quiet month challenge wise so thanks to those that did take part and here are the winner and the top three
The winner for May is;
and the Top 3 are;
13 - Sarah-J W
If you would like to email me HERE I will send through your blog badges - if Maryvonne adds an address I'll sort out a crafty prize for you :)  If you could add 'Blog challenge' in the subject line that would be great so I can pick them out from the oodles of other emails I get :)
So onto the challenge for June which is;
Use your DIES
As usual you can enter any crafty project as long as you have made it yourself, so cards, home décor, art pieces, mixed media, journal pages - anything!!!
Here is some inspiration from the design team :)


We would love for you to join in and can't wait to see your fab makes as always

Good morning/afternoon/evening everybody :)
Happy Mayday and happy bank holiday weekend to those of you in the UK - a nice 3 day weekend to fit in some extra crafting!
Thanks to everyone that entered the Anything Goes challenge for April - the entries were all amazing and it was so nice to see lots of different crafts included, including some stitching, some really cute amigurumi chicks, mixed media pieces, even a fab photograph :)  So nice to see such a huge variety of crafts in our challenge.  Picking a top 3 was near impossible - I think I am definitely going to have to do a top 5 instead :)  Anyway, the winner for April is...
56 - Deonna B
and the top 3 are...
28 - Hos Dorte
114 - pinkclover
if you would like to email me HERE I will send through a badge for your blogs - Deonna if you also include your address, I will send you a little something as a winner's gift.
So onto the May challenge.
This month the theme is...
Your Favourite Colour
so any crafty project again using/displaying your favourite colour.
as usual we have some fab inspiration from the DT girls :)


Really looking forward to your entries again and I am hoping for lots of different crafts again - loving the crochet animals and the stitched gifts, but I also love the mixed media pieces and the amazing cards that you always come up with :)
Happy Crafting

April Challenge - a new start

Hello all - well here we are in April already, time goes so fast!!
So as promised we will restart the blog challenges this month :)
Thank you all so much for bearing with me over the last few months, it has been a difficult time and my husband is still quite poorly but I am determined to get back to normal (well normal for me) and crafting is a massive part of my life.
I would love you all to join in with this months challenge, whether you're a regular to this blog or if you're a newby.
So, to start it off I thought we would do everyones favourite challenge;
Anything Goes
You can enter any crafty project as long as you have made it yourself - I really love crochet as well as papercraft so you could enter anything you have crocheted or knitted, a home décor project, a card, anything you have made, you can enter :)
Below is a bit of inspiration, just to get you going if your mojo has gone walkabout;

So, I would love for you to join in and have loads of fun doing lots of crafting :)
There will be a winner and a top three.  There is a winner/top 3 badge for  displaying on winning blogs and I will send the winner a little something to hopefully make them smile.

Blog challenge winners and

Well as promised I am here with winners for December and January.
(Late again but I now have the cold virus that half of the UK seem to be down with at the moment!)
I am also here to tell you about relaunching the blog challenge as of April 1st.
As you know I suffer from a chronic illness and the last couple of months have been incredibly hard for me, not helped by the fact that my husband who is an army veteran has also been particularly unwell :(  However, I feel that things are possibly more level for me now and hopefully when hubby comes home at the end of March, he will be feeling a little better too.
So, the blog challenges will start up again on April the first and it will be
Anything Goes
for the first month - however, I am going to start up the linky at the bottom of this post so if some of you would like to enter now you can (remember you can enter up to 3 projects).
But first the winners for December and January and the top 3 too.
Decembers winner is;
And the top 3 for this month are;
70 - Cebelica
The winner for January is;
and top 3;
29 - Eemeli
74 - JennyH
If you could email me HERE with either blog winner or blog top 3 I will sort out a little something for the winner plus winner badges and top 3 badges to display on your blogs if you wish to do so :)

So if you want to get an early start on the April challenge you can using the linky below, but I will be back with DT inspiration next month. 
Thank you all so much for bearing with me through what has been a very difficult time and I do hope you'll join in with our Anything Goes challenge for April. - I may do another giveaway alongside the challenge as a little thank you too.

Take care and see you all soon  (linky below)

Hello and a big sorry

Hi everyone.
Sincere apologies that there has been no blog challenge this month and that the December winners haven't been chosen. I have as you know been unwell, but my husband has been very poorly too and is in hospital for 6 weeks at the moment.
I promise I will be along with winners at the weekend and I also hope to get a March blog challenge up and running too.
Thank you so much for your patience and apologies again that I haven't been here.
I hope you'll join in again when I finally manage to get back to normal and start the challenges again.
Best wishes
