Thank you to everyone who entered our first challenge. 
We were overwhelmed by the number of entries we had for our first challenge and we loved visiting your blogs to see your creations.

We had exactly 200 entries *WOW*, and were totally blown away by them all.
Unfortunately a lot of entries didn't quite comply with the theme as they didn't state which was their favourite die/punch which was our theme, but they were all lovely. 

Winner and Top 3:
Our winner of the prize from Fantastic Ribbons is:

#40 Fiona (claimed)

Thank you to our sponsors, and Fiona, please email us at 
to claim your prize.

and our Top 3 are

Congratulations and please grab our *Top 3* badge to display on your blog:

DT Call Update:
Now that the DT Call is closed,
we'll be reviewing all the entries and contacting the 
winners in the next few days.

So, onto our Second challenge

We are sponsored by the talented Tammy of 
Shape EZ

 Tammy Louise is offering 2 free templates to the lucky winner of our challenge.  
The winner will be drawn at random from all entries that qualify for the theme. 

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite 2 Colour Combo.
You MUST make it clear which 2 colours are your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our team to get your mojo flowing:

We have the talented Tammy Louise joining us this week too from Shape EZ:

Tammy Louise
Tammy Louise says "I know this is a Christmas template,
but my favourite colours are Red and Bronze/Orange."
We say "It's never too early to be crafting for Christmas, and your Flip Card is lovely. Thank you so much for joining us this week".
Tammy Louise has used the Shape EZ Flip Tree Template

My two favourite colours are definitely Pastel Pink & Blue. 
(sorry Samantha, I know you're not a pink lover!)
I've made a cute little gift bag using a template from our sponsor, and a matching birthday card using some gorgeous papers in my two favourite colours.
I love making little boxes and this little gift pouch is really easy to make.

My 2 Favourite colours are Blue and Brown.
I love using these 2 colours together and love the way they complement each other.
I have combined some of the things that create my style;
Sewing, Crochet papers and colouring with Spectrum Noir Pens.
The Pens are a new found favourite! 

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite 2 Colour Combo.
(don't forget to tell us which colours are your faves!)

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
