December 2016–Take Your Pick

Good morning lovely crafty Tonic peeps and welcome to the next Win & Tonic challenge.

Thanks again to everybody who joined us last month – what a fabulous response, our best ever,  and oh my, there were some sights for sore eyes Smile

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


... 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.

Can I ask that you just leave your cards on there please and no comments or other posts
it’s only to help anybody who cannot add their cards and makes to the challeneg blog. 
I’ve put a sticky on the FB page which explains and thank you heaps for understanding xxx


OK so what’s on for this month?

Well this month 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 - Christmas colours. These can be traditional or more contemporary.

Technique - boxes, bags or tags

Product – any Nuvo product that you like –  you can still use Tonic dies etc but please include something Nuvo as well

Theme – Open theme - anything you want

So for example 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 full set of the fabulous new Idyllics die and embossing folder sets.




These are awesome  and of course, hugest of thanks to Tonic Studios for sponsoring us and for their continued support.

We are also very pleased to announce that we have a new girlie joining us and it is the oh so talented and our very own
Nicky – yayyy  : )


And if you want some inspiration, check out what the wonderful challenge team girlies have done – these are fabulous -
