Challenge #7 Sponsored by MHK Designs

     Welcome to our 7th Challenge here at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  We're a monthly challenge; we have a sponsor each month and we choose a random winner on the last day of the month, then announce the winner at the same time as the next challenge goes live.   Anything Goes in our challenges:  cards, scrapbook pages, journals, fabric arts, mixed media, painting, needlepoint, tapestries, any other craft projects you might love!

     We start a new challenge on the 1st of each month and end the day before the last day of the month.  However, we have one requirement for every project submitted in our challenges -- they MUST feature a creature!  Whether Furry, Feathered, Fantasy, Fairytale, Fins, Scaly, or Insect, there must be a critter featured and not just a teeny, tiny bug hidden in a corner somewhere.  Sorry, if we can't see the critter as the obvious focus, it probably won't qualifry as an entry.  :-D 

     You may enter as many other challenges as you like and you may enter our challenge up to 5 times per month but each entry must be a different project.  We have a sponsor each month and we choose a random winner on the last day of the month, then announce the winner at the same time as the next challenge goes live.

     We will also be inviting Guest Designers to join us each month so if you think you might be interested in being our Guest Designer in December, please add GD after your name or leave us a comment on this post saying you'd like to be a Guest Designer.

     OK, let's get right to what you all want to know - our winner of the prize offered by Fabrica Fantasy for our September challenge is: Nancy Brown

with this fab card: 

     Congratulations, Nancy!  Please email us at 2craftycrittercrazies(at)gmail(dot)com  so that we can arrange to get your prize to you.

     In addition, we've chosen Lisa Furbush to be our Guest Designer in November.   She really does some great designs!  Check out her blog by clicking on her name.

     Before we go any further, we really want to welcome a new member to our team!  Helen Niles has joined us and here's a bit about her:

My name is Helen and my blog is Made by Helen which you can find here.  I live in the north west of Britain and work for a charity called Abbeyfield as an Activities Coordinator.  I also teach card making classes part time for Little Claire Designs.  I love stamping, using digi stamps, papers and my trusty Promarkers.

     We're sponsored this month by MHK Designs and here's a little bit about them.

MHK Designs

MHK Designs is a shop filled with vintage and unique images plus
modern sentiments and digital papers.   MHK Designs also has a challenge blog

     MHK Designs gave this fun "Pet Puns" set to the DT and we all used images from it for our inspiration cards.   This fabulous set will also be the prize this month plus a set of digital papers chosen by the winner.
     Here's a little inspiration from our team to encourage you and, this month, we are delighted to welcome our Guest Designer, Lori Kobular.  Here's her fantastic card.
