Take Your Pick May 2017

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

Thanks again to everybody who joined us last month – what gorgeous makes there were and it was lovely to see  what you did : )

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


... 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.

Now before I get to the new themes, I just have to mention that we don’t have many rules, but one of them is that you must enter a new card.
You can enter as many times as you want – fill your boots – but it  cannot be an old one, so one that you made a year ago for example.
I always check and if it doesn’t meet the very few rules we have,  then out of fairness to those who have stuck to them I would have to re-draw it.
I just thought I would mention it and thank you for understanding xx

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 -

- neutrals ie creams, taupes etc

Technique -  stenciling with your dies

Product - any Nuvo product

Theme - open theme so any occasion

So 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 Essentials Lace Dies -


One AWESOME prize for sure, and hugest of thanks of course to Tonic Studios for sponsoring us and for their continued support.

Now let’s see what our wonderful challenge design team girlies have done – these are fabulous -



























There really is a fantastic selection here and we hope that they have inspired you to grab your Tonic stash and get making, so now it’s over to you.

Remember you can enter as many times as you want but please do make it's a new card as we don’t allow backlinking -
please take a minute to check the rules in the sidebar if you’re not sure.

And if you get a sec, please do stop by at our blogs –we love having visitors

Have a fabulous May and see you on 14th June with the winner’s post.

Crafty hugs from Ali, Dawny and all the team xxx
