Challenge #2 Tis a Recipe

Well here it is time for another challenge at Bearly Mine......I thank all 32 people that entered our first challenge of the sketch, there were some really awesome creations, and myself and the DT have chosen three of the entries for the Top 3 Winners. But before we get to the winners, to answer a few questions I've been asked.
No you don't have to just use my papers, but we would like to see them, and yes you can combine them with other papers.
Also no it doesn't have to be a card you submit, you can submit any project you've done, be it a scrapbook layout, a calendar, ornament, box, altering some object, and yes I would like to see you using my papers, and if you don't have any, there is a link in the sidebar that takes you to my shop where you pick up some freebies to use.

Now onto the winners of the first challenge, in no particular order.
#32 - Sandiblu - 2 Digi sets of your choice
#23 - Maxine - cupcake stamp from Crafty Emma's Store
#26 - Vicky - 5 Digi's of the Winner's choice

Congratulations ladies, if you would please email me using the link in the sidebar, I will make arrangements for your prize to be sent to you. Also please feel free to take one of the winner's badges in the sidebar to display on your blog.

Challenge #1 - A Sketch for the New Year

Welcome to our first challenge at Bearly Mine Challenges, the Design Team and I have been waiting ever so impatiently for this day to arrive........and here it is FINALLY.

We thought we'd start you off with a sketch, a nice easy one to follow....and remember if you don't own any of my Digi paper sets, you can always pop into my shop and use some of the freebies there. With the sketch you can turn it, flip it, whatever as long as we can still see the sketch.

The challenges run fortnightly, so this challenge will run till Monday Jan 17th 8 pm UK time.
The three winner's will be announced on the next challenge.
