Take Your Pick September 2017

Good morning lovely crafty Tonic peeps and welcome to the next Win & Tonic challenge.
Thanks again to everybody who joined us last month – what gorgeous makes there were and it was lovely to see  what you did : )


Lots of you have been using the new Win & Tonic facebook page –  you can find it here …

https://www.facebook.com/groups/318826021798173/

... and we hope that it helped anybody who has been struggling to upload their cards.
In case you missed it, if you leave your cards on that FB page,
we will pick them up from there and add them onto here for you so that you are allocated a number
to add you into the random draw (we don’t want it public so you will have to join the group).
It saves you emailing the cards over etc etc so it does seem to help.



Now before we get to the new themes, I just have to draw your attention to the few rules we have, so please see the sidebar and thank you for understanding xx



OK so what’s on for this month?

Well, we have another

Take Your Pick

challenge, and in case you aren’t familiar with this, it’s ever so easy and here’s how it works.


There’s a list of options and you can choose any of the options.
You can also combine some of the options if you want to so.
There’s a colour option, a technique option, a product option and a theme option.

And this month they are -


Colour
- open - please feel free to use any colour you want

Technique
- dimension, either by adding layers or Nuvo drops etc.
Anythng you want but no 'flat'

Product
– any 3D die

Theme
– something 'new' ie new house, new baby, new job etc


So you may decide that you want to go with just one of the options  or you may decide that you want to combine some of the options like some of us have.
You don’t have to do all the options unless you want to of course, so the choice is yours - it is really simple and easy and very flexible.
Any questions please just yell – leave a comment below and we will get back to you.


Now of course, we have a prize up for grabs and this month it is a set of the fabulous …


1806E_PACKED_1000_RGB_grande       1804E_PACKED_1000_RGB_grande       1805E_PACKED_1000_RGB_grande

There are easy to follow instructions on the page at the top which says ‘entering the challenge’.


OK so what’s on for this month?


Well we thought that this month we would get a bit festive so our theme is …

Christmas Is Coming


So anything festive and Christmas-ey, as long as it has something ‘Tonic’ on it, will be fine.
Or you could use Tonic Christmas dies and products to make a non Christmas card like our
Lou did Smile
Or maybe you want to use non Christmas  products to make a Christmas card like
Keren did.


Now of course, we have a prize up for grabs and this month it is a cracker of a prize – no, it really is because it’s …

1817E_PACKED_1000_RGB_1024x1024

.. this gorgeous Dimensions - Christmas Cracker Treat Box Die Set,
and hugest of thanks to the wonderful people at Tonic Studios for their sponsorship and support.


Before we get to the cards, we must welcome our newest team memner and that is the sweetness that is Keren xx
