Weekly Challenge and Winners {June Week 1}

Hi everyone Darcy here. Last week Kate Yetter made her debut appearance as GD, what a great entrance she made with her wonderful Art Journal cover. Next we had an explosion of stunning colours in Linda's triptych followed by the beautiful and restful colours of Jo's board and frame. Our own blog admin Gillian popped in to show us a duo of hanging hearts and finally I closed the week with the new journal challenge page. 

Thanks to everyone who joined in and made projects last week.We, and the designers truly love seeing your creations. We really appreciate that you take the time to leave positive comments, it means so much to us and the designers. 

1. And the winners are...
Random winner #1 from the First Challenge draw (every single entry linked, including multiple entries) is:  Lin

 Congratulations, you have won a PaperArtsy A5 stamp of your choice. 

 Random winner #2 the winner from the Second Challenge draw, (only one entry per name) is:  Helen

 Congratulations, you have won a PaperArtsy A5 stamp of your choice.

*Winners please get in touch with Darcy ( with your full  name,  address and choice of stamp plate. 

2. The week ahead...
This week we welcome back Liesbeth Fidder, I went for a nosey at her to blog to see what fabulousness she has been creating since we last saw her. 

I found the most wonderful cards, they practically jump off the screen , they are so striking in colour and composition. 

Settle in, we are in for another great week of inspiration.

3. P.A.Weekly Challenge from....{Liesbeth and other guests}

Liesbeth will be joined in the latter part of the week with other surprise guests, and of course, if you are inspired by any item you see on the blog this week, then please share what you get up to, and link your creativity here on the weekly challenge link. 

Your challenge entry can link to your own blog, Pinterest or Flickr pages, or any webpage that shows us what you have made in response to the posts on the blog this week. Just make sure you come back to this post, and use the linking tool below to show us your entry. We have extended the challenge entry deadline to 5pm on Sunday evenings.

Make sure on Sunday 8th June by 17:00 (5pm London time) you need to have your link entered below, and you will go into one of 2 draws to win new stuff.

To help you find the linky tool when you need it, just look at the final green paragraph on each blog post, there you will find a link that brings you back to this post.

Weekly Challenge guidelines
The first draw is for every single entry listed, so if you have multiple entries, you get entered multiple times. 

The second draw is only for one entry per name, and the winner of Draw 1 is not included in this second draw. Having 2 draws makes it fair for everyone, no matter how many times you can join in during the week.

As this challenge is to show how you have been inspired to action by this week's designer, make sure in your blog post you explain what prompted you to create.

Please don't feel you need to copy a designer's work exactly, it may be one small aspect or idea that you want to explore that sends you into the creative zone. You are also welcome to use any stamps/ products / substrates you have to hand, we do not expect you to exclusively use PA products - but of course it is lovely when you do!

The winners are announced Sunday evenings in the 7pm blog post (as above). It is your responsibility to check back and see if you have won. If you are a winner, email Darcy with the name of the stamp you would like, and your snail address. We do not chase people for unclaimed prizes.

If we are away at an event, then the winners post would generally be updated by Monday evening with draw details.
