Challenge 9 - Bugs & Beasties

Hi everyone! Welcome to Challenge 9 of the Crafty Calendar Challenge! Thank you for all your beautiful entries for last month's challenge - we loved seeing your cards for 'The Great Outdoors'!

Before I give the details of this month's challenge, it's time to announce the winner of last month's challenge and the winner of the fabulous rubber stamps from Just Tracys'! Thank you again for the wonderful prize Tracy!

The winner, chosen at random is:

Victoria - Biscuitlid

Congratulations Victoria! Please email me (Georgia) via the link on the sidebar, so we can get your two gorgeous rubber stamps posted out to you!

For this month's challenge, we have chosen the theme 'Bugs and Beasties' and we would like to see you using some bugs and insects on your card. It may sound a little tricky, but the possibilites are endless - you could make cards for men or make it pretty and girly, the choice is yours!

There is also an optional extra of wings, but please remember that this is not compulsory.

This month, we are very lucky to be sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads! Di is offering five digi images from her storeas a prize to the winner of this month's challenge, thank you so much for the fabulous prize Di!

This month, we are being joined by Fiona as our Guest Designer, who has such a fabulous blog and makes such gorgeous cards and projects - take a look at her lovely work and inspirational ideas!

Here are our cards for your inspiration:








You will also notice that we have introduced a new link system below, to make it easier for those who don't know how to manually link their card and easier for the Design Team to get around and leave comments.

You have until Thursday 1st July 2010 at 8:00pm (GMT) to enter the challenge. Thank you for entering and we can't wait to see your gorgeous 'Bugs and Beasties' cards!
