Hi everyone we hope you're all ready for a new challenge. The cards for last weeks challenge were all so lovely, I'm so glad I don't have to personally choose a winner, it would be soooooooo difficult. I'm glad we've got Random.Org........ lol. So with that let me announce the winner of last weeks challenge. The winner is......................... #10, Loreal Blondi. If you can email me, Karen, your postal details please, (email in the sidebar) I'll get them emailed off to Joanna Sheen so they can forward your voucher. If the prize isn't claimed by Friday then I'll draw another winner.

Ok, onto this weeks challenge which is sponsored by LETRASET and the prize is a pack of ProMarkers.
We've got the usual sketch for you, but this week we don't want to see any backing papers on your project. We'd like you to make your own backing paper. You could emboss it, distress it with inks, stamp on it, heat emboss, whatever you like really, just no backing papers please.
