February Challenge - Love and Marriage!

Love and Marriage with the very talented Heather Ellis!

Hello and welcome to February's challenge! I want to apologise to any entry that didnt get a comment over the last challenge. I have not been keeping well and I have been in hospital a few times over the past few weeks and never got round to getting through everyone. I really do appreciate every single entry we get and i hate not getting round to commenting on your gorgeous creations. I can tell you that i did look at each and every entry from my mobile phone from my hospital bed! Even the nurse had a quick peek at a few!
 I just couldn't get all my commenting done from my phone..so a great big SORRY for that.

We have also had to say goodbye to Carlyann. She has decided to step down to reduce her commitments. Thank You Carlyann for your sharing your talents with us during your time here at Crafty Calendar.

What another great turn out for our last challenge, New New's. I am so glad that i dont have to personally  choose the winner...Random.org has that job!

This time round he has chosen.....Rachel's Cards and Crafts
with this gorgeous "new home" card!

Congratulations Rachel, Please pop me a email, which you will find in the side bar, and i will get your digital images from Crafty Sentiments organised for you. 
A big thanks to Crafty Sentiments for the sponsorship last month again! 

Now onto our new challenge!
We have a brand new sponsor for you this month. Its the very talented...

The winner will win 3 images of your choice from Heather Ellis's Etsy store or Website

The challenge is......
Love and Marriage with the OPTIONAL EXTRA of Lace and Pearls!

We are looking for those Valentines cards, Anniversary cards, Wedding cards or just a simple card to show that special someone how much you love them.

Here is what the Design team have created for your inspiration! Some of us used digital images that were generously donated to us from Heather Ellis. 

            Katina used Purr Button Digital Stamp 014

Bev used Purr Button Digital Stamp 014

Tammy used Pure Innocence 022

Jo used Purr Button Digital Stamp 014

Lynne used Pure Innocence 022

Now is over to you.....let us see all those beautiful cards...made with love! 

Here are some reminders...
Please make sure you leave a link to your blog post and not just your blog and that 'Crafty Calendar Challenge' is linked in your post. Please only link to new entries as it isn't fair to back link to older posts. We have added a  "Optional Extra" element to our challenge but this is totally up to you, all entries will be entered for the prize as long the main theme has been followed whether or not the optional extra has been used. Any cards linked not meeting the above requirements will be removed and you will not be eligible for any of the fantastic prizes offered by our sponsors!
Also please remember that only 3 entires per person will be accepted 

This challenge will close on Friday 2rd March at 8pm and the winner will be announced the following day when the new challenge is posted. 
Thank You so much for taking part....we really do appreciate and love seeing your creations month after month!
