Mike says 

" Instead of a themed challenge based on occasions and events throughout the year I would like to do a colour and shape challenge each month. " " This year, a winner will only be picked if they have used a Kraftyhands product and will win a £10 voucher that can be spent on the website or handed in at the shop. " 

To be considered as a winner you must use at least one Kraftyhands branded product and the winner will be picked at random using random.org will receive a £10 gift voucher to spend in our shop or on our website.

You can still play along if you don't have any Kraftyhands products, you won't be eligible for the £10 prize but you could be chosen as a runners up and will be given an honourable mention!


So here is my make for this month ..



 
 Card base ,SU. 
Paper and image ,
The Romantique Collection CD ., Kraftyhands 
Heart doily  and pearls , Kraftyhands .



Now there you go .Go forth and create ! 



Hope that I see you here soon . 
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne
