Fortnightly Challenge No 62 - Our Final Challenge

Hi everybody

As you can see from our title, this is going to be the last ever Forever Friends Challenge. It was a difficult decision to make, but we've decided that it's time to say goodbye to our beloved bears, so we're going to close the challenge blog. 

On behalf of the entire design team, myself and Diane would like to take this opportunity to say a MASSIVE thank you to all our loyal followers, entrants, sponsors, and everyone who has visited us, commented, and supported us through this wonderful journey! 

We do, however, have some good news - myself, Diane and the entire design team are moving to a brand new challenge blog! 

is the newest weekly challenge blog on the block!
The first challenge will go live on June 1st, and between now and June 30th, we have a fabulous welcome candy going on over there, so please do head over, follow the blog, enter the candy and come back again on June 1st to enter our first challenge! 

We're all very excited about this brand new venture :) We have our fantastic design team, some amazing themes lined up, and of course amazing sponsors too! One door is closing, but another amazing door is opening right up :)

Because of this, the DT call that we had on the last challenge is actually void since we're closing this blog - we have enough members on our team currently for what we need for the new blog, so apologies, and thank you, to everyone who entered.

I think that's all the information I have to give about that for now, so onto our last ever challenge.

Our theme this fortnight is 

For a Child

We have two sponsors for this last challenge.

Our randomly selected winner's prize is sponsored by
who are providing our lucky winner with this clear stamp set:

Code: BASET2 Baby Pram & Toys 
Pack Size 10cm x 15cm
Contains 8 seperate clear stamps
Size of Pram 5.6cm x 5.3cm

Plus...
A handmade stamp of the winners choice
Here is an example of what is on offer.

Our Forever Friends Favourite, as chosen by the design team 
from all cards using Forever Friends products, 
is sponsored by 
who are providing our lucky winner with a $12 voucher for the store.

So here is the inspiration that our fantastic Design Team has come up with :)
