Challenge 1

Good morning everyone!

Tanya, Myself (Diane) and all the ladies on the design team are delighted to welcome you to our wonderful new weekly challenge blog - CRAFTY FRIENDS

I am so thrilled to finally announce our first challenge; which is a nice easy one to get us going...

'Anything Goes'
We are being generously sponsored for our first challenge by MilkCoffee who are offering 5 digis for the winner, who will be picked randomly from all eligible entries. They have also very kindly given the DT some images to work with as well...

We are joined this week by two fabulously talented Guest Designers.....

We would like to say 'Welcome and Thanks' to the lovely Jenn Borjeson

and another 'Welcome and Thanks' to the lovely Mary from MilkCoffee's Design Team

All of the DT cards are so beautiful! I love the Tiffany Swimming image. (I'd love to know which image Mary used. I looked for the card on her blog but didn't see it.) I am definitely going to play along for a chance to win some Milk Coffee digis! (I have a few already and really like them.)
