Challenge # 7 - It's Heating Up!

This weeks challenge is to celebrate the warmer weather coming our way in the lands down under which means Summer is definitely on it's way! For this challenge we would like to see anything using heat on your cards..... embossing, burnt edges, wax etc. There are some stunning projects from our DT Lovelies this week and all of them are completely different so I sure there will be lots of inspiration flying around. Don't forget the rules are posted just above this post. Please read them, we hate having to take people out of the draw because they haven't followed the rules. This challenge will close at 12 noon (NZ TIME) 14th December 2010

A HUGE announcement to share also..... Julie who has been our Guest DT Member has agreed to stay on as a permanent DT Lovely, we are so pleased to have her on our team. After seeing her totally amazing projects for the last couple of Challenges Trace and I agreed she was too fab to let go.

And one last thing... 2 of our DT Lovelies are celebrating birthdays this month HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO PATRICIA for the 2nd and HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARIE for the 11th!

Onto our super awesome sponsors for this challenge..............

well this is certainly a different kind of challenge (for me anyways)...the DT, as usual have been so creative in their 'heating' - I'm not so sure about burning pp either :) FANTASTIC challenge again ladies - hugz

Grenouille Greetings said...

We have a foot of snow so it's not heating up much in these parts but a great challenge and fun inspiration so thank you! Happy Birthday to the birthday girls too! Warmest wishes, Lesley

Sorry girls, I omitted putting INT after my name (no 15)in Mr Linky and I don't know if I can amend it... although I was in beautiful Christchurch earlier this year, I am actually from the UK!

Well here I am trying once again to get this linky thing right. If it doesn't work this time then I give up. I there are two cards so the DT will just have to decide which one they like. Who would believe that posting to a site can be such a problem?
