Hellooo, we're back and all refreshed with a new challenge

Hello there!

The summer holidays are almost over and the kiddies will  be back at school soon yeah.


Quite a few changes have been implemented here at the Jellypark Friends Challenge Blog. We are now posting on Sundays and our Challenges will run for a month. There will be one winner who will receive 3 images as a prize.
We no longer have a Design Team instead we will be looking for Guest Designers. Our previous Design Team girls will be making plenty of appearances though so no worries there.  

If you would like to be a GDT, you have an *account over at the Jellypark Store  and you are available for one of our challenges between Oct-Dec please just email me at our usual address.
*You need an account at the store so that if I contact you to be a GDT then I am able to credit your account for the 2 images you choose to create with.

Unfortunately as we no longer have a dedicated design team I am unable to guarantee comments on your entries. I am really sorry about that, please know that I really appreciate each and every one of you who link up and that I will visit your blog even if I don't leave comments. I will try to keep up with commenting, I promise ;o) but hope you don't mind if I miss some.


On to our new challenge :)

It's all about pets/animals.

In honour of us finally giving in to my daughters pleas for a pet, we dedicate this challenge theme to Chestnut the hamster. She was originally called Nutjob and oh boy was that name accurate. She's 11 weeks old but acts more like a teenager. You should see her cage in the mornings it looks like she's been partying hard all night ha ha.

We have a wonderful new bundle of images over in the Store that work perfectly with this theme. I used some of them to make this card.

This challenge will run through to the end of September. I can't wait to see yout pet/animal inspired makes.

Happy Crafting
Mel :o)

Claire and I would like to thank all of our DT girls past and present for the stunning creations they have given us to share with you each challenge period, their makes really are inspirational. 
It's so very sad to say goodbye to everyone, we've loved working with you. I especially want to thank Lisa S, Tracey, Suzie and Ruth who have been with us from the very start. Georgia, Jerusha, Chris and Gaynor who have been on the DT for a couple of years. Nancy, Audrey, Sandra P, Cynthia and Lisa W who have been with us since January.
We've had lots of fun over the months and years.

New Challenge time - Oh we do like to be beside the seaside

Good morning to our wonderful followers old and new. I just noticed that we've almost hit 500 whoop :o)

I'm here to tell you about our next challenge which will run for 2 weeks, but before I get to that I have a little bit of housekeeping to do.

Our Top 3 who crossed the line first for our "Sporty Challenge" are...

Congratulations ladies wonderful makes. If  Lynne would like to visit our shop and choose a stamp we will get that sent straight to you - email your choice to please!


Our theme this time round is all about the seaside/beach/nautical so we'd love to see those summery creations. There are a number of suitable images in the Jellypark Store if you want to visit there.

The design team have done us proud, as ever and here are their makes.

This beautiful card makes me smile every time I look at it, that whale is just adorable.

 The mermaid is one of my daughters favourite Jellypark images and Jerusha's card shows her off wonderfully, love the tail.
 The thing I love most about the seaside is looking through the rockpools, another fabulous card from Jerusha.

 Here he is again, yet he looks totally different, don't you just love the versatility of digital stamps? Lisa has created this wonderful shaped card with the image as the centre piece.

Oh what I would give to be lying there reading a book, what a stunning backdrop for this scrapbook page, great use of the image.

Isn't this card just so happy and colourful, I love beach huts, great sentiment too.

Well that's all from us, so now it's over to you and we can't wait to see your makes.
Happy Crafting
