No challenge this fortnight

Good morning, as you know we are taking a little break while we have a refresh and recharge our batteries.   Thank you for all your messages of support they have really given us a boost and encouraged us to sort ourselves out and crack on with the changes

Next week Jane will be back with her selections for the last challenge, and after that you might see the changes start to be put in place if you keep an eye on us.    So until the 7th October no more challenges, a big thank you for your past support and "Watch this Space".

Challenge #26 - Stamped Sentiment as Main Feature.

Hello, welcome back to the latest Twofers challenge.   This was very nearly our last challenge.  For a year now Jane, Christi, & I supported by Janine our wonderful sponsor, have carried on ever hopeful of seeing more support.   We very much appreciate those of you who play along with us and the high standard of all your entires making it really really hard to choose our winners.

However when there is just one or even no entries in the first week followed by a slow trickle up to about 6 by the end of the second week, we all become very disheartened losing the will to carry on.   So we thought we would stop.   The thing is I (Zoe) knew it would lead to another challenge and so Christi and I agreed we would take a month off and then carry on for a while to see if it got better.   Then Jane wrote her last post which made me cry!  Jane has agreed to stay with us when we come back in a months time.

How long we will be here remains to be seen and frankly is in your crafty hands.   We want it to be fun for you, please help us by making it fun for us.    Here is Jane's challenge after which we will see you again in October.

So, for my last challenge in the current incarnation of our blog, I (Jane) have chosen Stamped Sentiment as the Main Feature.  There can be other elements, even images, on your work, but the eye must be drawn to the sentiment, and the sentiment MUST be stamped.

Our favourite will win a $15 voucher from Alleystamp

Alleystamp - Back alley prices, Front door quality

Here is my card - for details on how it was made, see my blog.

and here are Zoe's final playing cards in her pack.

It's not goodbye yet, as I will be back to announce the winners after the closing date.

Challenge #25 - The Heat is On

It's time for our latest challenge - chosen by Christi, who will be back with us very, very soon now. But for now it's me, Jane, bringing the challenge to you. It's high summer, at least here in the northern hemisphere it is, so our theme is The Heat Is On.

As usual, we have a $15 voucher from our generous sponsor, Alleystamp, for the winner.

Here in the south of England, our summer has been a bit of a flop so far, so instead of hot weather, I thought of hot food! Here is my card for you

and here is another pair of Zoe's playing cards

We'd love you to link up your hot, steamy or scorching creations below, remembering as usual to include some stamping and no digis.
