July 2016–Take Your Pick

Good morning lovely crafty Tonic peeps and welcome to our third Win & Tonic challenge.

Thanks again to everybody who joined us last month.

Lots of you used 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 last month, 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 – black and white plus. You can use any other colour that you want

Technique - Glue Gun stuff, and here’s some ideas -

Product - A little Rococo – just use ANY Rococo die that you want

Theme – a card for a girlie or lady

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.


Now of course, we have a prize up for grabs and this month it is a set of really useful sentiment dies.
