Challenge 18 - Punched Borders...

Thankfully our Christmas Food Challenge proved not to be too 'big a bite' (groan!) for you and we saw some truly scrumptious entries from those eager to 'have a nibble' (groan, groan) at winning our fabulous Spellbinder prize.
So without further ado ... (or awful puns!) ... we are pleased to announce that the lucky winner of the Borderabilities Embossing Die Cut is ...

Please e-mail your address details to Irene at within the next 4 days and she will arrange for your prize to be sent out to you.
Congratulations! Val, Enjoy your prize!

So now we move onto our next challenge and once again we are delighted that Steph from The Crafty Duck blog has joined us as a Guest Designer with a wonderfully bright and cheerful card. Isn't it fabby?
Our theme this week is ...
Punched Borders
We'd like to see some fancy edges used on your cards/projects and whether this is along the edge of your project itself or on the papers you use to decorate is entirely up to you. Be creative ... be imaginative ... and knock us out!
S'cuse the pun again ... tee hee ... couldn't resist.

As always, if you click on the linked names below you will find out more about the techniques and supplies we have used for our creations, and if you have time to say 'Hi' or would like to leave a comment, then we always love to hear from you.


The deadline for this challenge is
12 noon (UK time)
Thursday 20th May 2010

You are free to create whatever you like ... it doesn't have to be a card ... in fact, show us as many different projects as you want to share.
Just remember ... have fun and don't forget to leave us a direct link to your project in our comment box so we can come and admire your creativity.
Ann, Irene, Max
