dots and spots sponsored by black leaf studios

For this fortnightly challenge we challenge you to use your forever friends images with spots and dots in some way.
This challenge is sponsored by black leaf studios

Black leaf designs sent the design team a set of "chic frames" digi images to play with.
if you like the frames you'll be pleased to hear that that they are the prize for this challenge. There are eight beautiful frames in both jpg and png formats.

Here's what the design team did





please note the rules of the draw:
All prize winners are selected at random using All entries are entered into the draw. If the chosen number is that of an entry that does not fulfil the criteria of the challenge then the draw is repeated until a valid entry is chosen. Therefore, there is no way you can win if you do not follow the instructions of the challenge. However, multiple (different) entries will increase your chances of winning (duplicate entries will be deleted). Only entries using forever friends images or products will be considered, unless otherwise stated in the challenge.
If the offered prize becomes unavailable for whatever reason, the design team will provide an alternative at their discretion.

forever friends favourite: card for a man or boy

Lots of wonderful entries again (although there seem to be lots of ineligible non-forever friends cards- just to reiterate, you can't win the prize or be favourite unless you use forever friends images).

Anyway it was quite hard to choose a favourite, until I visited Simplicrafti's blog. I was really impressed by the punching detail on the card, but then when I had a look around her blog I found TWO MORE male forever friends cards!! and they were gorgeous too, so I have decided to add those to the post as well.

Simplicrafti wins the right to display, the forever friends favourite logo on her blog.

Come back tomorrow to find out who won the randomly selected prize . if you have any query about how the winner is chosen (i.e. how we exclude ineligible entries) please see the small print at the bottom of the page.

**** New Monthly Challenge****

Welcome to our new monthly challenge. This challenge will run alongside the current fortnightly challenges. The rules are just slightly different so pay attention!

*The challenge will be posted on the FIRST THURSDAY of every month.
*You have a month to complete the challenge, the challenge will close when the winner is announced on the Day before the new challenge.
*Each Challenge will be sponsored and one RANDOMLY selected winner will win the prize. (if for any reason the advertised prize becomes unavailable, the design team will organise an alternative at their discretion, this now applies to all of our challenges)
*Only items made using forever friends images may be entered.
*There will be no Mr Linky for the Monthly challenge. Therefore you can either enter your challenge piece using the comments, leaving a link to the post where you piece appears (not just your blog) or (and this is the big change) , for the monthly challenges only, we will be accepting email entries. This means that those of you with less time or no blog can still enter!
so email your entries to or just leave a comment

So onto this months challenge, your challenge is to
make a card with more than one fold

And this challenge is sponsored by digi doodle

Here's a note from the owners:
Doodle Shop is the results of a mother and daughter?s love for the arts and crafts. It was started just a couple of months ago with a little more than 100 stamps, and has since then grown to over 250 stamps - now available. Joy (the mother of this team) designs realistic images, while I (Judy aka/daughter) love the ?fun side of life?, and create images with cartoon flair. Having these two complimenting styles have enabled Digi Doodle Shop to offer just about any type of stamp. Plus, we also offer ?custom made stamps?, and blog designs. Our best work comes from request, so if you don?t see what you?re looking for, just send us an email and before long you?ll see it in the shop. It is a real honor and pleasure to sponsor this challenge, and we look forward to seeing all the amazing creations. We thank the design team for their incredible creations, and wish all the participants the very best of luck in this challenge. Thank you so much for having us, and again the very best of luck to all of you. Sincerely, Judy and Joy
the prize is a $10 gift certificate to the store
which can be used on anything except custom blog work.

The design team were given some images of their choice to play with. This is what they did.
