Weekly Challenge and Winners {July:Week 4}

Hi everyone Darcy here. Last week Penny Nuttall introduced us to 3 wonderful and quirky art dolls. They really are a treat, if you missed those at the beginning of the week then do pop back and see them. Joanne showed us some really bold card designs, Jo Firth Young kicked off our sneaky peeks with a gorgeous card. Keep watching, there are more sneaks to come.  .We finished the week diving for treasure to fill up Helen's treasure chest. 

Thanks to everyone who joined in and made projects last week.We thoroughly enjoy seeing your creations. We really appreciate it when you take the time to leave positive comments, it means so much to us and the designers. The latest journal challenge is also up,with only 5 days left to enter. You can find all the details HERE.

2. The week ahead...
This week we welcome back Kate Yetter, we love her eclectic style, there is always so many interesting details to pore over. 

Over on Kate's blog I found this stunning card, what a beautiful colour combination. 

Next, this heart shaped piece caught my eye. I do love hearts. This has everything, texture, layers,colour,flowers... what more could you want. 

Finally, this Lynne Perrella piece. Kate has created a folder in which to store her stamps, and this is the front cover. Do check out her blog for more photos of this project. 

We hope you will join us for another great week of creativity. 

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

Kate 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 27th July 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.
