Hello all, and welcome to the 1st challenge at This Thursday, its all about………

Now we mused for a while about what our 1st challenge should be, and as we are a fresh, new challenge blog, and the basic idea behind the challenges is to find fresh inspiration, products or techniques and look at different art and craft areas for fresh ideas, so we decided that our 1st challenge should be simply

FRESH. wether you use the word, the definition, fresh colours, fresh products, or fresh techniques. However the word Fresh inspires you, and whatever it inspires you to create we want to see it.

Up for grabs is this great set of three colorbox queues  Rich Rustics pigment ink, Chocolate and blueberries Chalk ink and Rain forest pigment ink. A great prize provided by Craft 4 Creations . Kim also

provided the design team with a set of the Rain forest pigment inks each

A little about Craft 4 Creation from Kim

Craft4creation is a family run business (Steve & Kim) catering for card makers and scrapbookers alike. We have been established since 2004, which started as a bit of a hobby due to my passion for crafts. It rapidly took off and now we have our own Website Knowing the importance of quality products and the correct tools, we only sell items that we would be happy to use ourselves. We try to be competitive with our pricing which reflects the quality of the products. As crafters, we know when you make a purchase you need your item NOW! We pride ourselves with our fast reliable service, aiming to despatch within 24 hours of payment, this way you can start crafting as quickly as possible.

We would also like to thank our 1st Guest designer Rosie who’s amazingly artistic work can be seen here  Well known amoungst the challenge fraternity, Rosie is a great friend and is always full of helpful advice. We are so pleased that she is our 1st designer

So here are our examples  

We also have some downloadables for you on our download page, and a project on our project page .

Also you can come and chat to us on Thursday nights at 8pm GMT in our chatroom link in sidebar. You can ask about our examples or just have a chat. We have had such a great 1st day that we have decided that at least one of us will be in the CHATROOM at 8 pm UK TIME EVERY NIGHT the 1st week

Deadline for entry is Wednesday midday.  Winners will be announced on Thursdays just before new challenge. We will also be showing a slideshow of our favorite entries for that weeks challenge

    Fantastic challenge site. I look forward to taking part more often. The DT’s work is fantastic !

    Did you get my link ??? I sent it at 8am this morning, but it does not show ?

  37. tiggertasitc Says:

    I am really sad now, as i spent so much time on my flower and it took ages to come up with the design.

    i posted 2 comments on here at 8am today, but they don’t seem to have loaded up.

    Looks like i have missed the deadline.

    But here it is for anyone wanting to view my daisy
