November 2016–Take Your Pick

Good morning lovely crafty Tonic peeps and welcome to the next Win & Tonic challenge.

Thanks again to everybody who joined us last month – what a fabulous response and oh my, there were soe gorgeous makes Smile

Lots of you have been using the new Win & Tonic facebook page –  you can find it here …

https://www.facebook.com/groups/318826021798173/

... and we hope that it helped anybody who has been struggling to upload their cards.
In case you missed it, if you leave your cards on that FB page,
we will pick them up from there and add them onto here for you so that you are allocated a number
to add you into the random draw (we don’t want it public so you will have to join the group).
It saves you emailing the cards over etc etc so it does seem to help.



OK so what’s on for this month?

Well this month we have another

Take Your Pick

challenge, and in case you aren’t familiar with this, it’s ever so easy and here’s how it works.


There’s a list of options and you can choose any of the options.
You can also combine some of the options if you want to so.
There’s a colour option, a technique option, a product option and a theme option.
And this month they are -


Colour - Metallic theme so add something gold, silver etc.

Technique - anything 3D (so bags boxes, etc etc)

Product – any Tonic product that you like – fill your boots my lovelies

Theme – Christmas

So for example you may decide that you want to go with just one of the options  or you may decide that you want to combine some of the options like some of us have.

You don’t have to do all the options unless you want to of course, so the choice is yours - it is really simple and easy and very flexible.
Any questions please just yell – leave a comment below and we will get back to you.



Now of course, we have a prize up for grabs and this month it is a full set of the fabulous new Invite dies -

challenge, and in case you aren’t familiar with this, it’s ever so easy and here’s how it works.


There’s a list of options and you can choose any of the options.
You can also combine some of the options if you want to so.
There’s a colour option, a technique option, a product option and a theme option.
And this month they are -


Colour
– Autumnal shades so think reds, golds, greens, oranges, browns etc

Technique - Add dimension and texture so decoupage the dies, use foam pads etc, so no ‘flat’

Product – any Tonic leaf die or dies

Theme – open theme - you choose the occasion, so it’s up tp you


So for example you may decide that you want to go with just one of the options  or you may decide that you want to combine some of the options like some of us have.
The options we have chosen are listed with our cards.

You don’t have to do all the options unless you want to of course, so the choice is yours - it is really simple and easy and very flexible.
Any questions please just yell – leave a comment below and we will get back to you.
