August Challenge - Hot Colours!

Welcome to Crafty Calender's August Challenge!

What a great turn out last month for our Water theme!
I apologise if we didnt get round to commenting on everyone's projects last month. With DT members on holiday and others busy with the kids on school holidays its not always easy to get round everyone. We do look at every entry and we really appreciate the time you take to enter!

Now lets pick a winner from last months water theme challenge with a help from Random.org.....
The winner is.......Caroline Turner (Carolines new Hobby)
Here is her fabulous card!

Congratulations Caroline. If you pop me a email (link on side bar) I will organise your prize from Wild Orchid Crafts for you!
Now I have some sad news. Lisa and Di have decided to step down from the Design Team.
Lisa has been here from the start of the challenge blog and ran the blog for a long time. Both ladies gave us fabulous projects week upon week and will be missed a lot. Be sure to follow them on their personal blogs and leave them some love for all their hard work! Thanks for all your support girls and Good Luck with your future ventures!

Lets now set our new challenge!
It was Jenni's turn to choose our theme and she has decided to go with
Hot Colours for a hot month! (well some of the month!)

This month our sponsor is the fabulous..

The prize on offer is a $20 gift Certificate!..Wow, how good is that prize!

We have just one change this month. We have decided to limit the number of times you can
