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

We've also chosen these as our
DT Favorites:

Lori - #84 Janet Hines

I love the beautiful background and the way the image is mounted onto the card, it really stands out. The ladybirds and flowers are colored perfectly and the sparkle on the wings is gorgeous!  Who doesn't love to see ladybirds in the summer!!

CarolG - #30 Jane Willis
A simple, stylish design with delicate touches and 
always great to use a new-to-you technique.

NanaConnie - #20 Janet
I love her fabulous coloring and the CAS design.
The embellies she added to the one corner are 
perfect for a "by the sea" theme.

Donna - #105 Birgit

Beautiful colors and my favorite style of windblown leaves
 with a darling furry friend peering from the bottom 
with the happiest of expressions!  Melts my heart.

Ine - # 28 Shani Thomas (Paperesse)
I really love the colours; they all match so well 
and are so bright.  The digi is also really cute.
Cheryl - 31 Didos
This is sooo cute, I love cute.  The layers are so perfect and 
the colouring and expressions on their faces
 are amazing.  It would make a good valentine too.

Lynn - #130 Heather Mills
I love the great mix of patterned paper, pop of blue, 
and that stunning fox.

Now, the September Challenge!

 We're sponsored this month by Ike's Art.

Hi there – I am Ike……a nickname that I got many years ago due to my surname and, in my profession at that time, they just loved to give nicknames.  I live in Greece and have a passion for kitties.  I am a bit crazy or should I say I’m ‘zany.'   I have a very strange sense of humour and I must admit I spend a lot of time talking to myself !  Well, I get more sense out of me!  I reckon in a few years I shall be known as the “crazy cat lady.” 
I am an artist and have a strange mind when it comes to creating my art.  I either go completely true to life… right down to the last hair… or I go totally surreal.  I started my Blog a few years ago and now I run my CATS ONLY Challenge Blog and IKEs WORLD CHALLENGES, too.  Although I love crafting, my real passion is drawing, and I just love making digital images.
My Blog is Ikes World and is at 
My Cats Only Challenge Blog:

Finally, here's a little inspiration from our team to encourage you.
