Good morning lovely crafty Tonic peeps and welcome to our second Win & Tonic challenge.
Thanks again to everybody who joined us last month.
As some of you had problems getting your cards over onto here, to hopefully make things a little bit easier for you, there’s now a Win & Tonic facebook page and you can find it here -
This is just a place for anybody who is struggling to upload their cards.
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 will save you emailing the cards over etc etc and we hope that this helps.
Can we ask please that there’s no chat on there - it’s cards only and it isn’t replacing the main challenge – that will stay here.
But we thought that this might help you.
OK so what’s on for this month?
Well last month we had Anything Goes and we will have this again from time to time, but this month we have a
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 - orange (of course!!)
Technique - create your base card from any Tonic die
Product - use any Tonic flower die or flower punch
Theme - one for the boys or happy Father's Day
So for example you may decide that you want to go with just one of the options - Ali and Pamela did that and they chose the theme option and made a card for a man or boy or Father’s Day.
Ruth also chose just one option and she included a Tonic flower die – the product option.
You may decide that you want to combine some of the options like Claire, Doda, Edna, Karen and Dawny did and the options they chose are listed with their cards. .
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 as our colour choice this month is orange, we went with something that’s almost orange.
In fact it’s gold and
… it’s only a fabulous gold toy box – how awesome!!
And of course, hugest of thanks to Tonic for sponsoring us and for their continued support.
So what have our fabulous teamies done this month?
Ruth chose the product option (flower die)
Edna chose the colour and product options (orange and flower dies)
Doda chose the colour option, orange
Pamela chose the theme (Father's day)
Claire chose the colour and technique options (orange and Bowscale to make the base)
Ali chose the theme (Father's Day)
Karen made 2 cards, choosing the theme and technique options for one (Happy Father's Day and Flip Flop die for her base card),
... and she chose the Father's Day theme for this one
Dawny chose the colour and product options (orange and flower dies)
So that’s our cards and now it’s over to you.
